On Tuesdays and Fridays at 2330 UTC (6:30 PM EST), Keplerian
Elements for active amateur satellites are sent on the regular

Audio from W1AW's CW code practices, CW/digital bulletins and phone
bulletin is available using EchoLink via the W1AW Conference Server
named "W1AWBDCT."  The monthly W1AW Qualifying Runs are presented
here as well.  The audio is sent in real-time and runs concurrently
with W1AW's regular transmission schedule.

All users who connect to the conference server are muted.  Please
note that any questions or comments about this server should not be
sent via the "Text" window in EchoLink. Please direct any questions
or comments to w1aw@arrl.org .

In a communications emergency, monitor W1AW for special bulletins as
follows: Voice on the hour, Digital at 15 minutes past the hour, and
CW on the half hour.
  
All licensed amateurs may operate the station from 1500 UTC to 2045
UTC (10 AM to 3:45 PM EST).  Be sure to bring a reference copy of
your current FCC amateur radio license.

The weekly W1AW and monthly West Coast Qualifying Runs are sent on
the normal CW frequencies used for both code practice and bulletin
transmissions.  West Coast Qualifying Run stations may also use 3590
kHz.
