The Washington Totem Award

To encourage QSLing, the WWDXC sponsors "the Washington Totem Award." The complete rules for earning this award are printed on the back of each WWDXC QSL card. This is a highly valued award (especially for DX stations). The calls of award winners are published each month in The Totem Tabloid.


The WWDXC sponsors the truly unique "Nightmare Alex Alpha-Numeric Yearly Award." Few and far between, those who have received a NAANY quiver in the anticipation of a new year! It is one of the underground classics of ham radio and was conceived by former Totem Tabloid Editor, Jack Bock, K7ZR. To earn a NAANY you must QSO 250 of 260 possible alpha-numeric combinations consisting of the last number and the first letter of the station's callsign, WITH STATIONS OUTSIDE OF YOUR CONTINENT, in one calendar year. For example, JA1ABC counts as 1A, C21NI counts as 1N, VK9NS counts as 9N, and so on. The NAANY is available to all DXers, and can be endorsed for All SSB or All CW. Currently administered by Jim Hadlock, K7WA.

WWDXC Annual DXCC Award

This award is available to WWDXC members for working 100 DXCC countries in one calendar year. No QSLs are required for this award, this is a "fun" award. This award can be endorsed for SSB, CW, QRP, single bands, and special cases (wire antennas, straight key, etc.). Currently administered by Jim Hadlock, K7WA.
