Worked All Zones Award Rule

Section 2. General Rules

All QSO's must be made by a licensed Amateur Radio Operator, from a licensed Amateur Radio station, using only modes of emission and transmitter output power as permitted by the local licensing authority. QSO's with stations other than Radio Amateur (such as MARS, Commercial or Military) are ineligible for the WAZ award.

All QSO's must be conducted within the radio spectrum as authorized for that licensee by the local licensing authority

Any WAZ applicant found to be operating outside the bounds of their license may be disqualified from the WAZ program.

All contacts must be made from within the same DXCC Entity.

QSO's made by the same applicant using previous callsigns from that same DXCC entity are acceptable. Proof of holding those previous callsigns is requested.

The Official CQ WAZ Zone Map and the printed zone list are used to determine the zone in which a station is located.

If a problem is found with your application or QSL cards, we will attempt to contact you via e-mail to inform you of the issue and attempt to resolve it with you. We REALLY don't want to return your application if we don't have to.

The submission of any WAZ award application acknowledges consent to abide by the decisions of the CQ WAZ Manager and the CQ Awards Committee.

Decisions of the CQ DX Advisory Committee on any matter pertaining to the administration of this award are final.
