Please note that for the following award QSL Cards are NOT required. We do not routinely send out or collect QSL cards, and no special one is being issued for this event, it is all about the award. However, if you require one for other purposes, please QSL via the bureau to G4WAB. In order to save resources and work load, we would ask that you do not QSL unnecessarily.
The Worked All Britain Awards Group will be promoting an award based upon following the Olympic Torch around UK.
The Olympic torch will tour the UK over a period of seventy days taking in a total of seventy two special events in different parts of the UK, starting at Land’s End on Saturday May 19th and finishing on July 27th at the Olympic Park.
The WAB call signs will move around UK following the torch, G4WAB & G7WAB being activated as special event stations using the prefix GX-GT-GN-GH-GS-GP-GC, assigned to the appropriate country.
The award will comprise of three levels: Bronze – Silver – Gold. All that is requiredis a copy of your log showing the days/times that you worked either of the two calls. Only the two WAB call signs will count for the award which is open to all radio amateurs and SWL’s.
BRONZE 10 Contacts at different locations
SILVER 20 Contacts at different locations
GOLD 30 Contacts at different locations
The cost will be £3-00 and certificates will be sent in PDF format unless requested otherwise. As with all WAB activities, all excess income will be donated to charitable causes. WAB has donated in excess of £12,000 in the past 3 years to such causes.
Please do not send any claims until after July 28th 2012 when the run is finished and claim the one award at the level you have reached. Claims have to be with the award manager before August 31st 2012.
Please note: The spirit of the award is to give all participants an equal chance. Therefore certificates will not be numbered, and there are no higher awards for working more than 30 stations. When calling the station, please bear this ethos in mind and have regard for others, perhaps weaker than you, calling at the same time.
If operating the station we ask that you consider stations who's licence does not permit higher power and listen out especially for them and those who are calling from further afield.
Payment for claims can be made by PayPal, (details on website), or by post, cheque payable to “WAB Awards Group”.
