Looks like the WAZ awards are very close to going live on LOTW.

Yes, the beta test has been going well. The criterion for "going live" is two weeks with all reported defects corrected and no new defects reported.

Cool.. I have the basic mixed WAZ but I have no idea where I stand in terms of other WAZ components. I suspect I would have or be close to CW. I'd be curious what bands are remotely close. I know what bands I'm pretty sure I'm not close on!

Clublog has a pretty good WAZ tracking interface,

Just upload your log and it does the rest,

Work Progressing to Incorporate CQ Magazine’s WAZ Award Program into LoTW

Beta testing for bringing CQ Magazine's Worked All Zones (WAZ) award program into ARRL’s Logbook of the World (LoTW) system continues to move forward, officials from CQ and ARRL have assured.

Some problems in the implementation were discovered by testers and have since been corrected; the documentation has also been improved by feedback from the testers. In parallel, the LoTW server has been executing a background task that creates and populates a WAZ account for each LoTW user.

Beta testing will continue until this background task completes. When all WAZ accounts have populated, LoTW-WAZ will be made available to everyone.

“The goal is for Amateur Radio operators to be able to directly submit LoTW confirmations for WAZ credit,” ARRL and CQ said in a joint statement. “Standard LoTW credit fees and separate CQ award fees will apply.”

Logbook of The World is ARRL's electronic confirmation system for amateur radio contacts. It provides a confirmation when both stations in a contact submit their logs to the system and a match between the logs is confirmed. LoTW has supported the CQ WPX Award program since 2012.

Excellent! I've had all zones confirmed for quite a while now, but I'm 100% LotW so never had a way to get the certificate. Looks like I'll soon be able to.
