Worked All Continents Award

Many radio amateurs are cutting their DXing teeth on the Worked All Continents award.

The award recognizes contacts with all six continental areas of the world, and is issued by the International Amateur Radio Union (IARU).

Recently, the South African Radio League (SARL) was authorized to issue these certificates to its members on the IARU's behalf.

The basic award can be endorsed for a single mode or for meeting the requirements on each of five or six bands.

The application fee is R60 and the certificate will be sent in a sturdy mailing tube.

Rules and application forms can at present be found on the Pretoria Amateur Radio Club's Web site -
