Washington - Worked All Counties Award (WA-WAC)

 

The Clark County Amateur Radio Club offers a beautiful certificate for any station that works all 39 counties of the state of Washington after 1 Jan 1995.

Washington counties are: Adams, Asotin, Benton, Chelan, Clallam, Clark, Columbia, Cowlitz, Douglas, Ferry, Franklin, Garfield, Grant, Grays Harbor, Island, Jefferson, King, Kitsap, Kittitas, Klickitat, Lewis, Lincoln, Mason, Okanogan, Pacific, Pen Oreille, Pierce, San Juan, Skagit, Skamania, Snohomish, Spokane, Stevens, Thurston, Wahkiakum, Walla Walla, Whatcom, Whitman and Yakima.

Purpose: To acknowledge and recognize the achievement of contacting radio operators in each of Washington state’s 39 counties.

 

Rules: Work each county on any band using any mode of transmission.  You may mix modes in your report.  A valid contact is an exchange of information between two operators; one from any county in Washington and the other operator on a fixed or mobile station anywhere in the U.S.  In other words, you do not have to make all contacts from inside Clark County. There is no time limit on earning this award.

You must keep a log showing the frequency the contact was made on, the mode, the GMT date and time, signal report exchanged, call sign of the contacted unit, their signal report, and the county they are in. Any manual log or contest program printout will suffice as long as it has the required information. The difficult part is that you will need to report a verifiable contact (QSL card, LoTW, etc.) for each of your contacts. This is your proof of contact. Your log report needs to be verified by two other operators, signed, and dated by each. Cross Mode, Cross Band (except Satellite QSO’s), Repeaters, Echolink, CQ100 or IRLP contacts do not count.

  Submission:   To apply for the award, send the verified log report either to Clark County ARC, Attn: WA-WAC, PO Box 1424, Vancouver, WA 98668 or email to wa-wac@w7aia.org .  A fee of $5 US for a pre-printed award to be mailed to you is required, otherwise, the award is FREE in the form of an Adobe .PDF file you can use to print the award in your shack
