This is in cooperation with Yeasu and more information can be found on this project at      Clubs with special projects or information they would like to have distributed to the members of WPA can send their information to me at I will be happy to send this out via the league server.       Hopefully many of you are participating in the ARRL Centennial operating events. W1AW portable is operating from two different states each week. This is a great opportunity to achieve the WAS award by working W1AW. Each state will be on the air two separate weeks during the year. Also a contest with points assigned to members and to those with field appointments. Members without a field appointment are still awarded one point for being a member. Look forward to working many of you during the contest.   73 John V. Rodgers, N3MSE W. Pa. Section Manager
