Gracias colega W1DQ 73'
Michael - do you use LoTW? Many times, if the "other station" also uses LoTW and you do too, you can simply import your LoTW log into QRZ. If the Antarctica station also uses LoTW, you will indeed then get the QSL credit here, after doing the import.
Maybe there's a backhanded way? ARRL accepts paper QSL cards for its awards, either verified by a local card checker, or by mailing them to Newington. If QSOs verified by card checking are reflected in the LoTW database, then maybe card-verified QSO confirmations will be included in the LoTW file downloaded to your QRZ log. I tried to confirm this by reading the LoTW help files, but it's still not clear to me.
See: https://forums.qrz.com/index.php?threads/lotw-qrz-and-paper-cards.476755/ which states:
Please be aware that when you download your QSOs from LoTW this does not include any credit you may have receive from ARRL for paper cards. They do not supply this information to us. This may result in your numbers from Logbook of the World not matching exactly with the QRZ Logbook.
QRZ does not accept or recognize paper cards for confirmation at this time.
Do y'all anticipate doing so in the future ??

Not to my knowledge.
Doubtful. Keep working the folks who use LOTW. It takes time and a lot of work.
Here is 10 years worth of chasing stuff.
What's the point in downloading LoTW confirmations if they don't count for QRZ awards? I have 307 confirmed entities and 9BDXCC, but they mean nothing after I downloaded them to the QRZ logbook.
Due to processing during periods of less use, it may take up to 24 hours for your most recently granted credits to be shown.
Numerous QSO were for the KI4WCQ/M logbook that does not exist, hence not added.
