The total score is the sum of the number of states/provinces worked on each band. For example:
|Personal Data||Total Score||50 MHz||144 MHz||222 MHz||432 MHz||902 MHz||1296 MHz||2.3 GHz||3.4 GHz||5.7 GHz||10 GHz||24 GHz||>24 GHz|
1. Certificates will be awarded to any station who applies with a score of 30 or higher. The applicant does not have to be a member of the CSVHF Society to receive a certificate. There are three categories:
Single Operator, Multi-Operator, and Rover.
2. Walnut plaques will be awarded for first, second, and third place high scores in the Single Operator category. The awards will be presented at the annual CSVHF Society Conference held each year at the end of July. You must be a member of the CSVHF Society to be eligible for the 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place plaque awards. In case of a tie, a weighting factor will be applied to each band's score making higher frequency scores more valuable than lower frequency scores.
For Single-Op and Multi-Op categories all contacts must be made from a station located entirely within a single 500 meter circle.
New as of 2001/2002: Rover category.
Rovers may combine states worked from multiple locations.
New as of 2002/2003: Canadian Provinces.
You may count Canadian Provinces in your yearly quest--however the name of the program will not change. CY0 and CY9 despite DXCC status count for Nova Scotia.
New as of 2010: Electronic entries allowed.
1. Refer to the ARRL rules for WAS awards for any issue not specifically covered by these rules. In case of a conflict, the rules in this document shall take precedence.
2. QSL cards are not required, however verification of contacts may be done at the discretion of the CSVHF Awards committee. All decisions of the committee are final.
3. Entries may be on the CSVHF entry form (or copies thereof), or in a form that conveys all of the same information. If mailed in, please sign and date. Electronic entries via email are also acceptable. For instance, sending along the offered .xls spreadsheet (with your callsign in the file name) is another option.
4. An applicant may submit entries from multiple locations or combine them into one Rover entry.
5. Entries must be one band per page. Each page must clearly show the following information for each state or province being claimed:
Callsign, Date, Time, and Propagation mode.

States Above 50 MHz Award Information
This last file is in MS excel format and includes a summary tab and tabs for each band. You should be able to "save" the file to your computer and use it throughout the year. Rename the file with your callsign and you can submit just that file (as one option). (If you just click the link, it opens as a "read-only" spreadsheet. You'll need to save it to your computer to be an editable document for you.)
This new file is unprotected and has the date columns widened slightly to avoid "xxxxxxx's". There are no macros intended in the file so you can disable macros when "warned".
Notes: Populate the "Summary" tab with your Call and 2-letter state and those will propagate to all the remaining tabs. Change the program year on the Summary tab for future years. The date column will take just about anything you type and convert it to a fixed format of date. (mm/dd/yy is the quickest.) When you fill in the columns for callsign, time, date, and mode, you'll get a "1" in the count column. It does not increment. You can just leave it or feel free to change it to a running count on that band. Either way, the summary sheet counts the states and keeps a running count. Just email the file for electronic submission. It's best if the filename indicates your callsign and the program year. You can also save to a .pdf or print to a .pdf depending on which version of Excel you are using.
