The Worked US Territories Award (WUST) is a very colorful certificate sponsored by the METRO DX Club. 

Contact a minimum of fourteen (14) of the current sixteen (16) IARU-recognized U.S. territories (as of 1 January, 2011). The sixteen WUST territories are: KG4 (Guantanamo Bay), KH (Mariana Islands), KH1 (Baker & Howland Islands), KH2 (Guam), KH3 (Johnston Island), KH4 (Midway Island), KH5 (Palmyra & Jarvis Islands), KH5K (Kingman Reef), KH7K (Kure Island), KH8 (American Samoa), KH8S (Swains Island), KH9 (Wake Island), KP1 (Navassa Island), KP2 (US Virgin Islands), KP4 (Puerto Rico) and KP5 (Desecheo Island). Mixed bands and modes OK. No date restriction. GCR list certified by two licensed amateurs showing the callsign of the station worked, date, time, frequency/band and mode.

If you are at the TOP OF THE ARRL DXCC HONOR ROLL as printed in the most recent QST (normally the August edition), you automatically qualify for the award without having to send copies of QSL cards. You must write "TOP OF THE ARRL DXCC HONOR ROLL IN QST AUGUST 2010" (or the most current year of QST) on the Award Application in the "QSO Data" section. This applies ONLY to those who are at the VERY TOP (Number 1) on the ARRL DXCC Honor Roll.

For an LoTW confirmation, it must be verified by two amateurs as does a QSL card, or a copy of the screenshot of the LoTW QSL confirmation detail may be substituted.

Photocopies of QSL cards are OK. SWL OK. Send GCR list or QSL photocopies and fee of US$8 to:

METRO DX Club, 3810 N. Chamlin Drive, Morris, IL 60450. A PayPal payment to w9ty@arrl.net is also accepted.

Following receipt of the original award for a minimum of fourteen territories, endorsements for contact #15 or contact #16 are available for US$3.00. A PayPal payment to w9ty@arrl.net is also accepted.

See the Award Application for further information.

Hey, great speedy service with my WUST Certificate, which arrived today!! You must have worked overtime getting it printed and mailed off to me. I have it in a frame. Showed off the certificate to about a dozen radio club members at breakfast today.  Both N1RA and K8ZM, who had certified my QSLs, were there to see what their assistance yielded.  All were impressed. VY 73, John (Jack) Sproat - W4JS

I received the WUST award today and it's a beauty. It'll be right next to my Honor Roll certificate, WAZ, WAC, 5band DXCC, 5Band WAS and my A-1 Op award as well as some first place awards.  I'll also take it to the local ARC for a program.  Nice, really nice.  It will also have a place of honor with my 40WPM code proficiency award. TU Vy 73, Nick W9UM

Thank you very much for these two very nice pieces (ed: WUST and Gold Certificate). Now I hope that Navassa will be activated very soon. It would be the last entity for my #1 Honor Roll. 73, Klaus DL1DTL
