Folks - I'm not exactly understanding the LoTW comments on this thread. 
If it is referring to the LoTW screen shot totals listed by OK1RD on his 
website then that is the combined totals in his DXCC record, not the 
totals confirmed solely via LoTW so a "hack" has not necessarily 

Regardless, there is convincing evidence some bogus QSL cards were 
reviewed and accepted by a DXCC card checker somewhere and then entered 
into his DXCC record!
