The awards for which DXKeeper provides reporting and tracking have differing requirements as to what must be recorded with a QSO in order to accurately assess progress. The following table and its notes show what must be recorded for each award. In this table, the word any indicates that a valid item must be recorded; for a QSO to be properly considered for the CQ Field award, for example, its Grid item must specify a valid Maidenhead Grid Square.
