    Hi All,

    I just noticed strange way to award points on my Logbook. It looks like Award module missed some confirmed QSOs.

    These are following statuses from my logbook for three selected bands

    BAND 20M 15M 10M
    World Radio Friend 66 17 18
    Grid2 127 46 25

    Why there is only 66 QSOs in Friend 20M band when Grid2 shows 127 QSOs so for the same band, surely I made 127 different and confirmed QSOs. Of course the same applies for other bands.

    Based on this data, I should be received World Radio Friend award for 15M and 20M band as I made required QSOs, however system applied "points" to different diploma. Is this normal, what are the rules for deciding where confirmed QSO is allocated for award.

    Please note that numbers are quoted are confirmed by QRZ.com QSO's ie all these have yellow stars. There is for example 34 QSOs in ly log with different stations which are confirmed (yellow star). They do not have a marker indicating that they were used for award, yet my World Radio Friend Award shows only 18 QSOs.

    So why there is yellow star against an QSO but it is not included in award.

    Sorry if I am think and not seeing something obvious.

    It is a matter of understanding the rules.

    For the Friendship Award, both parties must have a QRZ logbook for a confirmed QSO to be accepted for credit. Note that QSOs that come from LoTW in many cases are not provided Friendship Award credit because they do not meet the additional criteria requirement that the party maintains a QRZ logbook.

    For example, 10M has only 18 of 34 that meet the full criteria.
