General Requirements: Sponsored by the Wireless Society Of Southern Maines. These awards are available to all radio amateurs in the world. Each award has its own specific set of guidelines which are explained in detail under the award's name below. For every award offered by WSSM, a GCR list is accepted. We allow GCR in lieu of actually having to see your QSL cards. GCR, (General Certification Rule), means getting the signatures of two witnesses who certify that you possess the cards and that the information that you state on the application is correct.
