W1AW Centennial Operations Now in Georgia and Hawaii:

The ARRL Centennial "W1AW WAS" operations that are taking place throughout 2014 from each of the 50 states are in Georgia (W1AW/4) and Hawaii (W1AW/KH6) until February 12 (UTC), when they will shift to California (W1AW/6) and Wisconsin (W1AW/9).

During 2014 W1AW will be on the air from every state (at least twice) and from most US territories, and it will be easy to work all states solely by contacting W1AW portable operations.

In conjunction with the 100th anniversary of the ARRL, the ARRL Centennial QSO Party kicked off January 1 for a year-long operating event in which participants can accumulate points and win awards. The event is open to all, although only ARRL members and appointees, elected officials, HQ staff and W1AW are worth ARRL Centennial QSO Party points Working W1AW/x from each state is worth 5 points per contact.

To earn the "Worked all States with W1AW Award," work W1AW operating portable from all 50 states. (Working W1AW or W100AW in Connecticut does not count for Connecticut, however. For award credit, participants must work W1AW/1 in Connecticut.) A W1AW WAS certificate and plaque will be available.
