Description: "In recognition of international two-way amateur radio communication, the International Amateur Radio Union (IARU) issues Worked-All-Continents certificates to amateur radio stations of the world. Qualification for the WAC award is based on an examination by the International Secretariat, or a member-society, of the IARU of QSL cards that the applicant has received from other amateur stations in each of the six continental areas of the world. All contacts must be made from the same country or separate territory within the same continental area of the world. All QSL cards (no photocopies) must show the mode and/or band for any endorsement applied for."

This award is available from the ARRL for amateurs in the United States or countries without IARU representation.

Other applicants must be members of their national amateur radio societies affiliated with IARU, and apply through the society (for example, the RSGB).

This certificate is available with a QRP endorsement.

There is also a 5-band certificate and a 6-band endorsement.
Product is in production.

Great introduction to DX  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
This was the first award I applied for. It taught me different tricks for chasing down the needed DX stations.

Application process through ARRL was smooth, with really quick turnaround.

WAC award  Time owned: more than 12 months
That's great!

Only thing I can say is that the price has gone up and the certificate has changed since I got mine 27 years ago.

good award  Time owned: months
I have the worked all continents (WAC) phone award.

Dealing with the ARRL was a pleasure and I received good service. I submitted my cards, application and fee and promptly received the award in the mail. It looks great.
