75 Meter Extra Class WAS Net


The GERATOL Net is an Amateur Radio Worked All States net that meets in the 75-meter Extra class phone subband for the purpose of helping amateur radio operators obtain the special WAS award available for working all 50 U.S. states with hams holding two-letter Extra class callsigns. The award is affectionately known as the Unbelievable Operating Acheivement Award.

For those earning the award, there are over 35 endorsements to pursue as well as a Directors Award. Only the basis award requires QSL cards. All endorsements are handled on an honor-system basis. The net runs it’s own QSL bureau to help those working towards the main award.

The net currently meets at 3668 kHz nightly at 0100 UTC from October 1 through April 30.

This site attempts to assist the net by providing information about the net and it’s awards program.

More information about Amateur Radio can be found a the American Radio Relay League web site.
