The DX4WIN.AWD file contains 228 custom awards.

The award database was last updated on 15 May 2022. Go to the Version History to see the changes, as well as to get a link to a ZIP file containing the database. Of course, you should be using the DX4WIN Data Updater instead.

The database is compatible with DX4WIN 7.01 and later. For earlier versions of DX4WIN, the following band-specific awards may not appear in the "Custom award" menu due to the addition of the 60 meter band in DX4WIN version 7:


Manual Installation

Extract DX4WIN.AWD from the .ZIP file and copy it to your DX4WIN SAVE directory. DX4WIN can NOT be running when you do this.

The DX4WIN.AWD file contains a version string at the top so you can determine which version you have:

dx4win.awd,v 3.26 2012-03-11 21:03:58

Note: DOK and SDOK are considered separate awards in DX4WIN. To combine them into a single award, see below.

Membership Lists

The version 3.0 and later ZIP file contains a number of membership list files (plain-text files with a .list extension). Theses can be used to identify member calls in the DX Spots window. This is only supported by DX4WIN 8.01 and later. Please read the application note on Membership Lists for more information.


WPX Honor Roll Prefixes

Only current prefixes will be counted toward the CQ WPX (Worked All Prefixes) Honor Roll standings. Prefixes will be deleted from the Honor Roll listing ten years after they are no longer authorized for use by the governing authority or by the ITU.

The current list of deleted prefixes was last updated on 9 December 2021. Click on this link to download the file, and save it to your DX4W###\SAVE directory.
