Triple Play

Triple Play WAS

  • The Triple Play WAS (Worked All States) Award is available to all amateurs worldwide who must use Logbook of the World (LoTW) to confirm QSOs with each of the 50 states on voice, CW, and digital modes. The Triple Play WAS Award is a serial-numbered award starting with # 1, as determined by the time stamp of the electronic application submitted via LoTW. Awards issued will be tracked and presented on the ARRL Web site.
  • Two-way communications must be established on amateur bands with each state on each mode. There is no minimum signal report required. Any or all bands (except 60 Meters) may be used for the Triple Play WAS. The District of Columbia may be counted for Maryland.
  • Contacts must be made from the same location, or from locations no two of which are more than 50 miles apart. Club station applicants, please include clearly the club name and callsign of the club station (or trustee).
  • Contacts must be made after 0000Z on January 1, 2009 to be considered for this award. LoTW will be programmed to automatically use this criterion. Contacts must be confirmed via LoTW. Written confirmations will not be accepted.
  • There are no endorsements for the Triple Play WAS Award.
  • Contacts made through "repeater" devices or any other power relay method cannot be used for WAS confirmation. A separate WAS is available for Satellite contacts. All stations contacted must be "land stations." Contact with ships, anchored or otherwise, and aircraft, cannot be counted. EXCEPTION: Permanently docked exhibition ships, such as the Queen Mary and other historic ships will be considered land based.
  • Each claimed contact must include contemporaneous direct initiation by the operator on both sides of the contact. Initiation of a contact may be either locally or by remote.
  • A US applicant must be an ARRL member to participate in the WAS program. DX stations are exempt from this requirement.
  • Attempts to falsify data, logs, or other application operations may be grounds for disqualification. The decision of the ARRL Awards Committee in such cases is final.
  • Please follow the instructions presented on the LoTW website. The cost of the Triple Play WAS award is $20 for a certificate delivered to a U.S. address, or $25 delivered to an address outside U.S.A.  A LoTW processing fee of $7.50 will be charged via the online application. 
  • Now is your chance to proudly display your accomplishment of achieving the WAS Triple Play award with a distinctive wall plaque to display next to your certificate! This distinctive plaque is a replica of the Triple Play award certificate laminated in plexiglass. Your callsign, award date and award number are printed on the plexiglass giving it a raised (3-D) appearance. The plaque is $57 for U.S shipments and $82 for international mailings.  You can send an e-mail with a credit card number, or, download the form and return it to WAS by regular mail, fax or e-mail it as an attachment. You can also call (860) 594-0200 to place your order.
