75 Meter Extra Class WAS Net



As many GERATOLers are aware, we have a special endorsement, # 19 for working stations/ops in all 50 states who have a QCWA number. You don’t need a QCWA number yourself, just need to work stations/ops who do have a QCWA number. Many folks on the GERATOL Net, are also QCWA members, and there has always been a strong connection between QCWA and GERATOL.

As the QCWA celebrates their 75th Anniversary, and we continue to celebrate our 50th year in service to the Ham Radio community, they are sponsoring two very special activities, both of which are currently under way.

The first activity: To celebrate its 75th anniversary, the QCWA Special Event Station, W2MM, will operate from 0001 UTC December 3 to 2359 UTC December 10, 2022. Only QCWA members in the US and its territories will have an opportunity to activate W2MM for this event. More information is available at

The second activity: QCWA is also hosting the members-only Worked 75/75 Members Contest from December 5, 2022, through February 18, 2023. The contest encourages QCWA members to contact a minimum of 75 QCWA members during the contest period. All contest entrants will receive a special certificate. Additional information including the rules, and log forms is available at

On behalf of the GERATOL Net, and all it’s members, we would like to extend a SPECIAL CONGRATULATIONS to the QCWA on your 75th Anniversary. Happy Anniversary QCWA
