The Worked All Britain Awards Group, (WAB), was devised by the late John Morris G3ABG in 1969. This was to promote an interest in Amateur Radio in Britain and to sponsor a series of awards based on the geography of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.
Since its inception, WAB has grown through the voluntary efforts of many individuals. WAB has many aims and has the motto “To assist others”.
WAB aims to create more activity on the air by British amateurs and in doing so create friendships within the country and overseas. It is true to say that many lasting friendships have arisen through WAB activity.
WAB aims to improve and expand geographical knowledge of Great Britain, Northern Ireland and the Channel Isles. Indeed the WAB programme has encouraged many people to travel to the more remote parts of the country. At the same time it has encouraged overseas interest and encouraged many people to visit Britain and have hospitality extended to them by British amateurs.
WAB aims to help less fortunate amateurs and provides, when funds allow, donations to organisations such as the Radio Amateur Invalid & Blind Club.
Thanks to a legacy from the late Norman Marshall, G1NTW, WAB is now also able to make donations to registered charities, other than amateur radio related ones.
Another aim is to encourage all radio amateur licensees and short wave listeners to improve their operating techniques. Mobile and expedition activity is given encouragement. WAB has done much to bring about an upsurge in mobile activity on the LF bands and has increased mobile activity on the VHF and higher bands. It is the intention of WAB to assist in the preservation of existing frequency allocations against commercial interests.
WAB has no allegiance to any social, political or religious organisation, and is fully independent of any other amateur radio group, although it is an affiliated member of the RSGB.
