Pennsylvania and Iowa Will Host Final W1AW Centennial Operations

12/23/2014

The ARRL Centennial W1AW portable operations taking place throughout 2014 from each of the 50 states are now in Maryland, Hawaii, and Georgia. They will transition at 0000 UTC on Wednesday, December 24 (the evening of December 23 in US time zones), to Pennsylvania (W1AW/3) and Iowa (W1AW/0). These will be the last W1AW portable activations of the ARRL Centennial Year. During 2014, W1AW has visited all 50 states at least twice, as well as some US territories.

The ARRL Centennial QSO Party is open to all. Working W1AW/x from each state is worth 5 points per mode/contact, even when working the same state during its second week of activity. ARRL members, appointees, elected officials, HQ staff and W1AW are worth ARRL Centennial QSO Party points as well.

Stations who have worked W1AW operating from all 50 states are eligible for the “Worked all States with W1AW Award.” A W1AW WAS certificate and plaque will be available.

An ARRL Centennial QSO Party leader board shows participants how many points they have accumulated in the Centennial QSO Party as well as states worked in the W1AW WAS operations. Log in using your Logbook of The World (LoTW) user name and password, and your position will appear at the top of the leader boards. Results are updated daily, based on contacts entered into LoTW.
