You heard right! I'm now an authentic ARRL LoTW member, having just received my TQ6 encryption certificate email this morning ^,==,^ I'm currently writing up a how-to regarding just wherein you yourself can become a member, and the steps that are involved in doing so. It'll be good for those who aren't quite so computer savvy and need a little extra help, so expect that article to either come out later today or in another day or two! I'm a bit sick right now having caught the flu or something similar so things are going a bit slow for me.
Addendum as of 22nd September 2018: I'm now Authenticized Guaranteed at eQSL.cc also, so double-bonus!
