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.
