ARRL Granted Use of W100AW for League's Centennial:

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 http://www.arrl.org/w1aw in Newington, from regional Centennial conventions, and during the IARU HF Championship http://www.arrl.org/iaru-hf-championship will use W100AW, with portable designators as appropriate. The "W1AW WAS http://www.arrl.org/files/file/On%20the%20Air/W1AW_2014_sked.pdf" 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 will be worth 100 points in the ARRL Centennial QSO Party http://www.arrl.org/centennial-qso-party. To help kick off the ARRL Centennial, special W100AW activity will begin at 0500 UTC on January 1, 2014 (midnight in Newington), and will include participation in ARRL's Straight Key Night http://www.arrl.org/straight-key-night; one CW station will use Hiram Percy Maxim's straight key. Activity will continue throughout New Year's Day.
