I hate to sound like the rookie I am, but here goes. In a lot of programs they ask the following: IOTA, CQZ, and ITUZ. I would like to know where to find these things. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

   Exactly what type of "programs" are you referring to? Things i.e. IOTA may be (Islands On The Air ) similar to SOTA (Summits On The Air) or are you asking about Time zone info?
Typing an abbreviation into your browser may sometimes give you the answer.

No problem....

How to find your maidenhead square...click on the map where your QTH is and it'll give the maidenhead square, i.e IO94SA which is mine:

IOTA list although if you don't live on an island you don't have an IOTA reference:

and most of these  are for "collecting" a card from 100 sites or every site or a combination of things, like 100 grid squares . most send a certificate when done.
