Worked All Britain Awards so far 2

Two WAB trophies received last year

Two WAB trophies received last year

Of late I’ve been focussing on working stations across the UK for the various Worked All Britain (WAB) awards, for me this adds some incentive to work local stations on both HF and VHF. It’s especially convenient as I spend more time working with NVIS and ground-wave propagation than I do regular F layer DX.

I’ve been quite active since 2015 and often join the WAB nets on 3.760 MHz (active in evenings) and on 7.160 MHz (although not running very often right now due to poor NVIS propagation).

I’ve previously written about the Going for Gold award, WAB’s 50th Anniversary celebration award, and my struggle to reach 2,500 points/contacts before the end of 2018, in order to gain the coveted (well by me at least) trophy. As a result of some intense focus I only need another 71 contacts to get the trophy, so this is now really in reach. For a number of months it looked doubtful I’d reach this target before the end of the year so I’m pretty happy!

Below are some of my WAB awards that I’ve been awarded so far, there’s no real reason for posting these other than to give myself an archive of what I’ve achieved so far.

    Hi James,
    I always enjoy reading your blog entries. Nothing posted for a month or so though; what’s the progress on your WAB award? All the best. Miss your posts.

      Hi Pete,

      Thanks for your message. I’ve made good progress on the Going for Gold WAB award, and have made enough contacts for the trophy now! I’m now trying to get the same trophy but for VHF contacts only (only 500 contacts needed rather than 2,500 for HF), I need another 20 contacts before the year is up!

      I’ve got a very long list of WAB awards to apply for, so keep your eyes peeled, there’ll be a blog post about it in the new year 😉
