Work The World (WTW)
Frequently Asked Questions
Q. What's a "Suffix Letter"?
A. The Suffix Letter is the first letter after the last number in a callsign. Examples: N3DQU = “D”, K8IJ = “I”, 2EØJCA = “J”, 4Z4DX = “D”.
Q. I just worked W4KRN on PSK31. Can I use that 1 QSO for the letter K on all 9 of the WTW endorsements?
A. No. You'll have to work W4KRN again 8 more times to use her callsign for the letter K on other endorsements.
Q. I just worked W3HF on PSK31. Can I use that 1 QSO for the letter H everywhere within an endorsement?
A. No. You can only use a callsign 1 time per endorsement.
Q. I'm working on the SAUS endorsement. Do I have to make QSOs with stations actually in Vermont to spell out the state name of Vermont?
A. No. You can use callsign suffix letters from stations located anywhere in the world. They do not have to be located in the place you are attempting to spell.
Q. During the 31 Flavors contest I worked a bunch of stations using all 5 modes. Can I use those QSOs for WTW credit?
A. You can use only the QSOs made using PSK31 mode.
Q. Hey! I just looked at the list of countries for the SANAC and Greenland isn't listed. What gives?
A. Only countries that are Sovereign States are in the WTW lists. Partially recognized and unrecognized sovereign states, as well as dependent territories have not been used.
Q. Once more - If I work N6MG can I use that QSO for an "M" on all 9 endorsements?
A. No. You can use the same callsign on each of the 9 different endorsements, but not the same QSO - separate QSOs are required for each endorsement.
Q. During Field Day I personally made 85 PSK31 QSOs using my local radio club's callsign. Can I use those QSOs for my WTW credit?
A. No. Only QSOs made using your own personal callsign may be used for your own personal WTW credit. Likewise, only QSOs made using the call of a club that is a member of the PODXS Ø7Ø Club may be used for that club's WTW credit. Sorry.
Q. This is a lot of QSOs!! How do i keep track of it?!?!
A. This is done AUTOMATICALLY for you by the endorsement checker -- simply upload your PSK ADIF log, and check out the WTW report!! It will show you a complete progress report.
