In 2014 ARRL and its volunteers will activate W1AW/x in each of the 50 states, territories and possessions. The goal is for the W1AW/ operations to be as active as possible during the Tuesday night local to Wednesday time frames (00Z Weds to 2359Z Tuesday). All bands and modes may be used. ARRL will offer Worked All States Awards for QSOs made with the W1AW/ portable operations and incentives to work each activation, even if the state has already been worked. There will also be a points-gathering activity, during which W1AW/ portable stations will be worth points.
Each week there can be up to two W1AW/ operations from the states and one from a territory.
Please use the calendar below to find an open week to operate as W1AW/. It is OK to share the operation with other stations in the state, but try to keep the complexity down -- sharing logs over a large network isn't necessary unless you want to experiment. HQ will need ADIF files from each county from where an operation occurred.
Contest weekends: We're not sure yet of the effect on logging programs or log checking if three or four W1AW/ variations are active. We might have to agree on which activation can use the call during a contest if there are multiple station which want to be on for the contest. More later.
We look forward to a truly once-in-a-lifetime year of operating.
