Good news on the ARRL front...
>After review, ARRL will be permit contacts through the ISS (Earth - ISS
>- Earth) to be counted towards satellite endorsement for WAS and DXCC.
>This applies to contacts made via the onboard repeater equipment
>provided that the equipment does not hold and re-transmit information.
>Contacts with the ISS do not receive any award credit.
>Further information will be available on the LoTW website.
>Thank you for bringing this to light.
