The League is funny about how they handle this.  For DXCC, it's
"RTTY", but they say that "Baudot, ASCII, AMTOR and packet count as
RTTY" ...  no mention of any other digital modes, tho' I'm failry sure

For WAS, OTOH, they have a Digital award that covers "any" digital
mode, but if you apply for the RTTY award, it's numbered where the

I think if you're going to somehow track awards then the only two
choices are 1) just mark the country/entity without going into bands
and modes (i.e. mixed) or 2) do them all.    The former is justifiable
since there are *so many* awards.  OTOH, if you try to pick and choose
bands and modes, there will always be complaints ...
