    The GRID SQUARE Award
    The WIA DX Awards Committee is pleased to announce the very popular GRID SQUARE Award is being re-launched.

    Improvements to the award include endorsements, standings, and a new modern certificate which recognises the world-wide nature of this award.

    The GRID SQUARE Award is available as recognition of the appropriate
    number of confirmed contacts with Amateur Radio stations in Grid Squares. Its purpose is to stimulate interest in the IARU grid-square system. The ARRL also runs an annual "International Grid Chase".

    The world is divided into 324 grids, each divided into 100 squares.
    This gives a total of 32,400 possible GRID SQUARES.

    Of course, many of these are in the middle of the world’s oceans, so the actual number of workable grid squares is much smaller.

    Individual WIA GRID SQUARE Awards, together with endorsements, are
    available for HF, 6M, 2M, 70cm, 23cm, and SHF. Current grid square counts will be displayed in a Standing list.

    Full details can be found on wia.org.au under the 'For Members' dropdown menu - select 'WIA DX Awards'
