    Hello,
    I've been playing with FT8 and made contacts with some states and noticed in the QRZ WAS award, they are not showing as neither confirmed nor unconfirmed. Are FT8s not used in award calculations yet?

    TIA!

    Confirmations require matching mode fields (both you and your worked party's mode field); FT8 in this case.
    50 States are based on the State field in associated Confirmed QSOs.

    LoTW downloads have yet to recognize FT8.

    Understood that confirmations must match, but I thought the way I had seen it was if I had an entry, that was not yet matched, the state showed in yellow. In fact, I have some yellow states from other digi modes. But I have a couple or so of FT8 digi states, still unconfirmed, but they are still red. Maybe I'm just remembering it weird?

    It may take 24 hours to update as the award processing is placed in a queue for a time of reduced activity.
