ARLX012 W1AW schedules Transatlantic, OSCAR celebrations in December

Maxim Memorial Station W1AW has scheduled two Special Event
operations during December.

W1AW will be on the air December 3-7 to honor the 80th anniversary
of the 1921 Transatlantic tests. Listen for W1AW/80 on many HF and
VHF bands (including satellites).

W1AW also will celebrate the 40th anniversary of the first Amateur
Radio satellite--OSCAR I--launched into orbit on December 12, 1961.
W1AW will be on the air as W1AW/40 December 10-14 on as many of the
active satellites as possible.

A special QSL card will be available for contacts or listener
reports on both events. QSL requests for W1AW/80 and W1AW/40 go to
W1AW, 225 Main St, Newington, CT 06111. Include a self-addressed,
stamped envelope or the appropriate number of IRCs with each
request.
