SB SPCL ARL ARLX001
ARLX001 W100AW active for ARRL's Centennial Year

A reminder that the FCC has authorized the Maxim Memorial Station
W1AW to also use the call sign W100AW during 2014, the ARRL's
centennial year.

Contacts made from the Maxim Memorial Station in Newington, from
regional Centennial conventions, and during the IARU HF Championship
will use W100AW, with portable designators as appropriate. The "W1AW
WAS" operations throughout 2014 from each of the 50 states will use
W1AW, not W100AW.

Bulletins and code practice transmissions during 2014 also will
still use W1AW. Contacts with W100AW are worth 100 points in the
ARRL Centennial QSO Party.

Information on the ARRL Centennial QSO Party may be found on the
web at, http://www.arrl.org/centennial-qso-party .
