ARLX004 W1AW QRV during School Club Roundup and GOTA

Maxim Memorial Station W1AW will be active during the 14th Annual
School Club Roundup, February 14-18. This event is geared towards
young amateurs, and school clubs. Certificates are available for
various entry levels.

Complete information can be found on the ARRL Web site,
http://www.arrl.org/contests/announcements/00/scr.html.

W1AW also will participate for the first time in the annual Guides
on the Air (GOTA) event, February 19-20. During GOTA, Canadian and
US amateurs help young women learn about Amateur Radio by making it
possible for them to get on the air and communicate with their peers
via Amateur Radio.

Although this event originated in Canada, it has gained popularity
in the US. Invite a few Girl Scouts (Daisy Scouts to Senior Girl
Scouts and leaders) to your shack for that weekend. GOTA stations
will be using all HF bands plus 2 meters on frequencies that end in
''33'' and ''88.''

More information on GOTA is available on the web at
