Awards

The Collins Radio Association is sponsoring a new Worked All Collins award based on having worked other amateur stations in each of the six continental areas of the world using Collins equipment two-way. That is, both stations must be using Collins equipment for both receive and transmit (a transceiver like the KWM-2 will be acceptable to meet this requirement). A special color WAC award certificate will be issued for working and confirming North America, South America, Oceania, Asia, Europe and Africa) on a variety of different bands and modes.

As evidence of confirmation, the only requirement is that you submit your log sheets as proof of contact. In addition, the log should clearly show what Collins equipment was used in establishing contact by both parties. The first amateur radio operator to submit QSL cards will receive a one-year subscription to the Collins Journal. All QSL cards will be returned.

All contacts must be made after March 1, 2001, from the same country or separate territory within the same continental area of the world. The following information should be helpful in determining the continental area of a station located adjacent to a continental boundary:

North America includes Greenland (OX) and Panama (HP)
South America includes Trinidad & Tobago (9Y), Aruba (P4), Curacao & Bonaire (PJ2-4) and Easter Island (CE0)
Oceania includes Minami Torishima (JD1), Philippines (DU), Eastern Malaysia (9M6-8) and Indonesia (YB)
Asia includes Ogasawara Islands (JD1), Maldives (8Q), Socotra Island (7O), Abu Ail Island (J2/A), Cyprus (5B, ZC4), Eastern Turkey (TA2-8) and Georgia (4L)
Europe includes the fourth and sixth call areas of Russia (R1-6), Istanbul (TA1), all Italian islands (I) and Azores (CU)
