The FT8 Digital Mode Club (FT8DMC) rewards Radio Amateurs who make contacts with Amateur Radio stations in each of the 10 call areas of Italy with the Worked All Italian Call Area award. All QSOs must be made using the FT8 digital mode.
The certificate sports a nighttime view of Italy from space showing the Italian mainland and part of the island of Sicily.
In addition to the standard award, which allows for contacts on any given band, you can also work towards WAICA certificates on a number of HF bands and 6M. Thus, there are actually 11 different awards to which you can aspire.
To apply for the Worked All Italian Call Area award, and all other FT8DMC awards, you must install the UltimateAAC application on a Windows machine. That application scans your WSJT-X ADIF log file and will inform you when you’ve qualified for the award at various levels. FT8DMC 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.
