Worked All Continents (FT4DMC)

The Worked All Continents award is a relatively easy first time certificate for Hams to chase. The International Amateur Radio Union‘s WAC award serves this purpose well. There is a digital version of the award, but what if you want to fine tune your efforts even more? The FT4 Digital Mode Club‘s (FT4DMC) Worked All Continents, a WAC synonym award, is here to help. To get it, simply work a station using the FT4 mode on each continent (Antarctica doesn’t apply).

The issued certificate sports a modern looking map of the world showing the six relevant continents. North America, South America, Europe, Africa, Asia and Oceania are all shown with imagined FT4 messages darting between them. Perhaps Antarctica disappeared into the gravitational hole shown in the background beneath Africa!

Besides the basic WAC award, FT4DMC also offers additional certificates for working all continents on any single HF band or six meters. In addition, there is a special award for working all continents on each of the traditional HF “Five Bands” (80M, 40M, 20M, 15M and 10M). These all add up to a 12 more awards to chase.

To apply for the Worked United States Stations Award, and all other FT4DMC awards, you must install the UltimateAAC application on a Windows machine. That application scans your WSJT-X ADIF log file, or any ADIF log file you specify. It will then inform you when you’ve qualified for the award at various levels. FT4DMC issues the award in digital form only (JPG or PDF) with no printing or shipping costs. In fact, the award is completely free, like all of their other awards.
