Upon joining the club, You are issued a WAMO number. You may then exchange the numbers with other club members on any amateur mode. However, it must be a live contact, packet mailboxes or other digital mode storage is not permitted. When contacting another member, the WAMO number, callisgn, and name of the member must be exchanged with each person making the contact. Certificates are given for the first twenty contacts made, then for each one hundred after that. At five hundred contacts, in addition to the certificate, you also get a plaque. At eight hundred contacts, not only do you get the certificate, and plaque, but you also get a gift certificate for dinner for two. How do I play?? First off, you must be a member of the club. Then, just join in on all the fun.
