W1AW Centennial Operations Now In Arkansas and Minnesota:

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 Arkansas and Minnesota. They will relocate at 0000 UTC on Wednesday, June 18 (the evening of June 17 in US time zones), to Alaska (W1AW/KL7) and Montana (W1AW/7). 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.

To celebrate 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 mode/contact, even when working the same state during its second week of activity.

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.

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.
