W.A.B. Follow The Torch Award certificate

The Worked All Britain Awards Group is 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 Lands End on Saturday May 19th and finishing on July 27th at the Olympic Park.

The W.A.B. callsigns 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 required is a copy of your log showing the days/times that you worked either of the two callsigns. Only the two W.A.B. callsigns will count for the award which is open to all radio amateurs and SWLs.

Any profits made from the Follow The Torch award will go to charity.

Bronze10 Contacts at different locations
Silver20 Contacts at different locations
Gold30 Contacts at different locations

The cost will be £3-00 and certificates will be sent in PDF format unless requested otherwise.

Claims have to be with the Awards Manager (see the Committee page) before August 31st 2012.

Please note that 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 or G7WAB as appropriate. In order to save resources and work load, we would ask that you do not QSL unnecessarily.

Payment for claims can be made by PayPal, (see "CLAIMING AWARDS FROM YOUR ARMCHAIR!" on the Index page), or by post, cheque payable to “W.A.B. Awards Group”.

The cost will be £3-00 and certificates will be sent in PDF format unless requested otherwise.
