The Geratol Net

75 Meter Extra Class WAS Net

Awards

The Geratol Net offers the 75 Meter, Extra Class Format, Worked All States Award, aka the Unbelievablle Operating Acheivement Award, or more simply the Basic Award.

The award was initially created by the ARRL when the exclusive segment of 75 meters was created for Extra class Amateurs by incentive licensing.

The net formed to help hams help each other earn the prestigious award and soon became quite popular. To encourage the hams who had completed the WAS Award to keep participating so others working on the WAS would have people to work, they came up with a number of endorsements. Working on these endorsements can be even more challenging than the Basic Award.
