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 ??
