Additional Notes

1. The WAS-Awards are as follows: 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5, then 10, 20, 30, 40 etc.
You cannot work the same station for additional certificates.
2. The YL-WAS Award can be applied for #2, #3, #4, and #5.
3. The Mobile-WAS Awards (in any of the three categories:
station to mobile, mobile to station and mobile to mobile)
can be applied for #2, #3, #4, and #5; ie, M-WAS #1, #2, etc.
4. The SCA-Award (all 50 states), can be applied for #2, #3, #4, and #5.
6. When you first apply for the DX-50 award, all the prefixes used therein count 
for the first WPX award, so one must remember not to add another USA prefix to the 
WPX-100 application, if you have already used it in the DX-50 award.  In the case
of Canada, you can only use one prefix from VE1-VE7, but all others will count;
ie, if you use VE3xxx for the country, then you cannot use another VE1-VE7 in
any WPX award. 
9. The TCA-Award can be applied for #2, #3, #4, and #5. (The application form that
is supplied from the Net Administrator has the required States and Provinces listed).
11. The 50-300 Award is "The Master Achiever Award", the 50-500 Award is "The
Senior Net Achiever Award" and the 50-1000 Award is called the "Millennium Award".
14. The CIA-Award application form has listed countries that count for the award.
15. The PIA-Award application form has listed countries that count for the award.
17. The APA-Award: VK1-VK8, VK9C, VK9L, VK9M, VK9N, VK9W, VK9X (any one VK9) and VK0.
19. 73-Award: See the link to the list of sections on the application form page!
20. USPX-Award: Read all the rules and particulars on the application form page!
24. If in doubt, look up person's name in FCC databases/callsign servers.  You
cannot work Robert, Bob, Bobby, Rob etc., if in fact they are are from 'ROBERT',
only Robert will count.  Don't force awards manager to look up names; do your
necessary 'homework' before submitting application!!
25. 10 watts or less means 11 watts does NOT count!  DO NOT presume when a
station is QRP, he is running 10 watts or less...you need to ask, unless the
Net has already announced that information. WAS for QRP to QRP QSO's also.
26. Examples of current 'truckers' are K0MRC, KB7OUZ, W4TWO, VE6TG, KE4BME,
K5DUG, KK5KK, and KV4EO.  There are many, many others.
27. Combo stations may be fixed, portable or mobile, but both parties MUST
be present, use their own callsign and exchange signal reports independently.
28. You are working the Club Station, not the person running the Club station.
Call the club's callsign, not the individual's callsign.  The official Club
callsign and Club Station Name MUST be printed on the QSL card!

Certificate Fees

Any initial award applied for costs $2 (two 'green stamps'), and is mailed flat
in an appropriate protected mailer.  All endorsements only are for a single-unit
#10 stamped SASE (no green stamp for endorsement).
