W.A.B. 50th Anniversary Award

W.A.B. 50th Anniversary Award certificate

This award is based on a points system, with an initial certificate awarded for 10 points and endorsements for each further 10 points. A further certificate and trophy are awarded for multiples of 50 points.

A set of Excel Tracker spreadsheets have been produced, which can be downloaded from the links below. Full instructions are included in the Tracker, but in essence the tabs have user defined band/mode endorsements and columns for dates. Thus, whilst the logging may at first glance seem a chore, all that is required for each contact is simply entering the callsign and the date. All totalling is done automatically for you.
