Emerald Anniversary Award   Page Last Updated: 07 Jan 2024


W.A.B. Emerald Anniversry Award certificate

The year 2024 marks the 55th, (Emerald), anniversary of the W.A.B. Awards Group.

The award will be open to all and will be available on all modes and all frequencies.

The squares and members elements of this award may again this year be worked monthly for credit. The credit for any squares, and members not counted in the monthly round down will be carried forward to the next month.

Contacts with xx55 Squares, Islands, Large Squares and with the W.A.B. club calls also form part of the award.

To acknowledge the fact that Northern Ireland is part of the Emerald Isle, the 10km and 100km squares there will count double for the award.

The initial certificate will be awarded for 5 points with endorsements for each subsequent 5. A new certificate and trophy will be awarded for each multiple of 55 points.

All contacts must be made within the 2024 calendar year, i.e. 1st January - 31st December 2024.
