FT8DMC Worked All Indonesia Prefixes Award

The FT8 Digital Mode Club have the Worked All Indonesia Prefixes Award (WAIP), for FT8 QSOs with Indonesian amateur radio stations from each Indonesian Prefix:

YB, YC, YD, YE, YF and YG

From there are 4 classes of licence in Indonesia

YH - No code - VHF/UHF only
YD YG - Novice - HF 80 m, 40 m, 15 m, 10 m 10 w only
YC YF - General - HF except WARC bands 150 w
YB YE - Advanced - All HF bands 500 w

I managed to get most of the Prefixes, however YD took me some time... surprisingly I could copy them okay on their low power, just getting them to respond back to me on FT8 was a problem. Called several YDs over time on 40 m with no response. Finally made a QSO with YD9DE to complete the requirements for the award.

Applied using Ultimate AAC software. Approved promptly by the awards manager Yudi YE1AR, actually one of my contacts. A nice looking award.
