ARLX001 W1AW/90 Operates Through 2004

The Hiram Percy Maxim Memorial station at ARRL Headquarters, W1AW,
will sign with a special designator - /90 - through the rest of
2004. The call sign reflects the 90th anniversary of the League's
founding by Maxim and Clarence Tuska in 1914. Operation as W1AW/90
will begin April 3.

W1AW Station Manager Joe Carcia, NJ1Q, said he will encourage guest
operators to use as many modes as possible, including RTTY, PSK31,
Satellite and Hellschreiber. "Plus, we're going to try for SSTV
WAS," he added. "It'll be tough, but we can do it."

Special QSL cards will be available for W1AW/90 contacts, and Carcia
noted that self-addressed, stamped return envelopes should
accompany all QSL requests. All contacts with W1AW/90 will also be
uploaded to Logbook of The World.
