Worked All Continents (WAC FT8DMC)

The International Amateur Radio Union‘s Worked All Continents award is a popular entry level award for working all 6 populated continents. Antarcticians need not apply. For those wishing to do the same thing solely using the FT8 digital mode the FT8 Digital Mode Club offers up their own WAC program in the form of an award synonym.


The WAC award is presented in digital form (both JPG and PDF versions available). Like other FT8DMC awards, it is entirely free!

The FT8DMC version of WAC offers a 5-band version of the award, just like the IARU’s version. However, the FT8DMC program also offers separate WAC awards for 9 different bands. There are 11 awards to shoot for in this program if you are so inclined.
