    Nice! And to my surprise I have all 40 zones confirmed in CW :) Didn't know that. (SSB: 1 zone)

    Not perfect.
    JT1CO and BG2AUE show up under "mixed" as zones 23 and 24, but are missing from "5-band"
    Missing VU2ELJ who is confirmed zone 22 by QSL card only.
    Missing VO2NS who is confirmed zone 02 by QSL card only.

    I was able to dig out all the required cards a few years ago, and I do have my CQ WAZ award.

    One other shortcoming I see is that WAZ-on-LOTW doesn't seem to support the creation of rules-based accounts (like are used for WAS or VUCC).

    That's important if you have a mix of "local" and "remote" contacts in your log. I'm eligible for a couple of different variations of "traditional" WAZ, but if I submit through LOTW, I'm offered a mix of local and remote contacts.

    I have my mixed award on the wall, but one of my zones is not confirmed in LoTW (It was paper QSL). I wonder if there is a way to get it to show up in LoTW? I qualify for the basic 5B WAZ but I'd like to spend a year or two filling in some empty spots and boost the numbers a bit before I get around to submitting for 5B. 200 ain't gonna happen tho with this antenna.. I'd need a vast improvement on 80 to hit some of those zones in the 20's from here.
