AMSAT will now accept LOTW contacts for all of their awards.

We had been trying to figure out a way to do this and it was actually 
quite simple as suggested by one of our members.

Log into your LOTW account, click on "Your QSOs". Select the station you 
want to include for your AMSAT award. Click on "Details". Use a screen 
capture program or Windows Snipping tool and attach that screen shot.

The information displayed contains both callsigns,  the DXCC entity, the 
Grid Square, the time/date and mode for the contact. Everything we need 
for the contact to be accepted.

This will make it easier for everyone to submit for AMSAT awards as they 
do not also have to get a hard copy QSL card for their LOTW contacts.
