W1AW Centennial Operations In Pennsylvania, Oregon, Until April 9 (UTC):

The ARRL Centennial "W1AW WAS http://www.arrl.org/files/file/On%20the%20Air/W1AW_2014_sked.pdf" operations taking place throughout 2014 from each of the 50 states are now in Pennsylvania (W1AW/3) and Oregon (W1AW/7). They will relocate at 0000 UTC on Wednesday, April 9 (the evening of April 8 in US time zones), to Massachusetts (W1AW/1) and Virginia (W1AW/4). During 2014 W1AW will be on the air from every state (at least twice) and 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 http://www.arrl.org/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 http://www.arrl.org/centennial-qso-party#Table. 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 (pricing not yet available).

The ARRL has posted an ARRL Centennial QSO Party leader board https://centennial-qp.arrl.org that participants can use to determine how many points they have accumulated in the Centennial QSO Party and in the W1AW WAS operations. Log in using your Logbook of The World (LoTW http://www.arrl.org/logbook-of-the-world) user name and password, and your position will appear at the top of the leader boards. Results are updated daily, based on contacts entered into LoTW.

So far this year the W1AW Centennial operations have posted https://centennial-qso-party.arrl.org/w1aw-portable-qsos.php nearly 685,000 contacts, with uploads awaited from some operations.
