Worked All Britain Sapphire Anniversary Award


Please Note: The Sapphire Award has now finished. Please ensure Award claims are with the Awards Manager by 30th June 2015.


The year 2014 sees the 45th Anniversary of the Worked All Britain Awards Group (W.A.B.), founded by the late John Morris, G3ABG. To celebrate this occasion, for this year only, we are issuing an Award based (loosely) on the number 45.


W.A.B. Sapphire Award certificate

The 45th anniversary, whilst not widely celebrated, is the Sapphire one. WAB have decided to break the mould and celebrate this anniversary by introducing a Sapphire Anniversary award.


The award is based on the number 45 and stages of this award have endorsements corresponding to the less usual anniversaries.


There will be 5 stages of the award, culminating in a trophy for the top (Sapphire) class. There are two categories of the award depending on the global location of the station and the frequencies used for collecting and a further one for activating the award.


The requirements are as follows:

HF is defined for this Award as 1.8 MHz and higher, VHF is defined as 50 MHz and higher.

Lower certificates must be claimed either before or at the same time as a higher stage


All contacts must be made within the 2014 calendar year, i.e. 1st January - 31st December 2014.


As with all W.A.B. Awards, this one is endorseable for individual bands/modes.


We hope that you will be able to join in our celebrations.


Following requests from members and in view of the high level of activity and achievements in the early part of this year, the W.A.B. Committee have decided to increase the levels of the award attainable beyond the initial trophy.
To this end, further trophies can be claimed for attaining multiples of 45 points, with the required squares increasing by the same factor.
i.e.:
2nd Trophy = 90 points & 900 squares required UK HF or 450 squares VHF/Outside Europe & Mobile
3rd Trophy = 135 points & 1350 squares required UK HF or 675 squares VHF/Outside Europe & Mobile
It is statistically very doubtful whether a 4th level could be achieved, but if so it would be:
180 points & 1800 squares required UK HF or 900 squares VHF/Outside Europe & Mobile
