Yep - it's the Worldradio Worked-100-Nations (W-100-N) award. The original award rules required that you not only work work stations in inhabited countries, but that you work citizens of those countries (not visitors). They were relaxed a bit so you can work a visitor who has a non-portable callsign in that country. E.g. A22MN or 7P8SR would count but not V5/W9SZ (just using that last as an example, I've never been there).
It's an interesting award. It is not endorsable but you can apply for a specific band/mode in your application if you wish (all 40 CW or all 15 SSB etc.) You don't have to send cards in but you have to send the QSO information plus a statement signed by two other hams that they observed the cards for the necessary 100 countries confirmed. It isn't as easy as you'd think! 73, Zack W9SZ On Thu, 10 May 2007, Dan Zimmerman N3OX wrote: > Why do you feel that each entity should have a permanent population? > Why not start a seperate award for that instead? > > In fact, I bet there already is one. > > Dan > Subscribe/unsubscribe, feedback, FAQ, problems http://njdxa.org/dx-chat To post a message, DX related items only, email@example.com This is the DX-CHAT reflector sponsored by the NJDXA http://njdxa.org
