The Worked All Ireland Award program (WAI) was established to encourage Radio Amateurs / Hams to work 10 Km x 10 Km Grid Squares within the Republic of Ireland (EI) and Northern Ireland (GI).
The challenge encompasses a combination of Grid Squares, Counties and Islands from EI/GI. There are also Awards for Book Numbers and Grid Square activation. There are over 1400 Grid Squares to chase, with Awards available for working as few as 175 grid squares, 15 counties and 1 Island rising to the Ultimate Award for which you need 1400 grid squares, together with 32 Counties and 25 Islands.
Congratulation to both EI6HW and Tom EI9CJ who have achieve the highest award for working all 1400 grid squares, and to Declan EI9HQ has activated over 1300 grid squares.
