  • WAE III,
  • WAE II,
  • WAE I ,
  • WAE-TOP und
  • WAE-TROPHY

The different classes require the number of WAE countries and bandpoints as tabulated below. Each WAE country counts for one point, but a maximum of 5 bandpoints may be used for one country.

The WAE is issued in the following modes: CW, SSB, Fonie, RTTY, FT8, Digital and Mixed Modes.
