WAP= Worked all pets, for getting 50 QSL's with only a pet/s picture on the card, none of the the op. Half credit if op is also on card.
WACOC = Worked all calls on card. For working all the call signs listed on the QSL card. Multiplier for those belonging to the same person.
WAO= worked all ops, for working more than one holder of a call sign. Do not know if calls are reissued outside US, so this may only pertain to US calls.
WAF= Worked all family. For working all the hams living in the household. Might get WACOC as well on this one.
WAMMORPG = Any QSL that is themed after an internet computer game.
DWW= The death while waiting award, for receiving a QSL 20+ years after the QSO! Yes, I would have this one!!
Copy Cat = For working ops with the same name.
Friendly Neighbor = For working one or more neighbors. Endorsement for still using legal limit.

All I can think of for now, what can you come up with? Sense of humor appreciated.

WATS - Worked All Television Sets

I would have won that one with my first station. Bad RFI from a Century 21 into a long wire. for 35W out it sure could find a TV, Stereo, VCR, and anything else not RFI protected.

How about an award for all the hams who were nice enough to send you a card after you sent them one?

Nah, WAB = Worked all bubbas
Stations with really "home brewed" equipment such as a real "beverage" antenna consisting of a large number of cans from your favorite brewsky, Maybe something using a home made Budweiser tuned cavity etc.....
