- The name of the lighthouse.
- The WLOTA number.
- Information if the lighthouse needs the validation of Expedition.
These files are only for WLOTA checkpoints and WLOTA members.
It is forbidden tosend these files without WLOTA Manager Authorization.
Send a message to WLOTA to request these files.
The lists for Google Earth are for now:
PA - TK

WLOTA Diploma Price:
With the big crisis in the world, we work for a better solution:
- WLOTA Member "VIP" pay 3 Euro per year. Access for all design of Diplomas
  and services anytime.
- WLOTA Free (No member). Only One design for diploma during February of each year.
  Before the end of this year you will be informed about these 2 solutions.

WLOTA Contest 2016:
The date for Next WLOTA Contest is 02 and 03 July 2016.
Again this year we have deleted the category SWL because since the beginning of this
contest we have not received any log for this category.

How to be WLOTA member:
To be WLOTA member, you must send 3 Euros to WLOTA. With the WLOTA member card, you
can request any number of WLOTA diplomas. The Diploma's are free for WLOTA member.
Your membership will be ok from date to date for one year (not January to January).

Explanation about WLOTA Rule:
WLOTA number on QSL or not:
A little number of OM and SWL do understand that the number will be on QSL:
Between 01 July 1997 to 31 December 2004: The number is not necessary to be on QSL or
on QSO label but all WLOTA expeditions need the validation. If no validation we do not
accept the QSL for the diplomas.
Since 01 January 2005: The WLOTA number must to be printed on QSL or on QSO label. We
do not accept the name of the island (because all checkpoints cannot verify the good
number with the name of island and many lighthouses have their personal name (not name
of island). Also you must validate your expedition if necessary (see in the list on
web site the word "Yes").

Official WLOTA Checkpoints and Zone:
For the moment we work with some checkpoints about the possibility to validate expedition.
You will informed for each checkpoint when they will be already for validate.
