Work The World (WTW)

Rules & Instructions



1. The WTW Award Series is free and available only to Members and Club Members of the PODXS Ø7Ø Club.


2. Only PSK31 QSOs made on or after 0000 UTC 1 July 2012 can be used for credit for the WTW Award Series. 

3. All QSOs used for credit for the WTW Award Series must be made using the applicant's callsign (either your own call for an individual application, or the callsign of the member club if the club is the applicant), consistent with the Ø7Ø club callsign policy (posted here on the web site). If you have multiple club memberships for alternate callsigns, contacts using different memberships must be kept separate for WTW credit. In other words, all contacts in a WTW application must be made using callsigns that are listed under a single membership number.

4. While there is no power requirement or limit, you are urged to use only the minimum power required.

    • 3. Spell All Oceania Countries (SAOCC)

6. When you qualify for your first WTW endorsement you'll receive that endorsement sticker and a WTW certificate to hold all 9 of the WTW endorsement stickers. As you qualify for additional endorsements those stickers can be added to the WTW certificate.

7. All WTW applications submitted are subject to verification by the Award Manager. Decisions of the Award Manager are final.


Instructions
