I got a extremely large batch of W1AW/portable centennial year QSL's through my bureau sorter yesterday. There seems to be one card from each of the two weeks of each state's activation. Thanks guys at HQ and bureau!

Did you work all 50 states, and if so, did you get cards for all your contacts? I received a pile of W1AW/p this week, and found I was missing 3 states. I am confirmed WAS with the 2014 operation, so just wondering if some are just alittle delayed....

I'm a card sorter at the W9 Bureau (only letter D suffix).  The  W1AW/x  cards hit the bureau in June/July  and it was a chore to get through all those cards.  What  made it worse was that some who don't use Bureau requested cards and never bothered to claim them.  Many cards had multiple QSOs on them which helped a bit.  If you have got your W1AW/x cards yet, you might want to inquire of your local card sorter.

I worked each of the 50 states in each of the two weeks. Plus KG4, KH2, KP4, KH0,KP2, KH8, and DC. In fact I got a certificate from ARRL just last week, "Number One Centennial Points MDC".

My bureau sorter tells me one of the envelopes from HQ arrived ripped open and empty, and he reconstructed which of the cards went missing. I know I got one for each of the fifty states but I think in some cases I don't have two for each of the fifty states.

I can't wait for the ARRL bicentennial to come and we do it all over again!!! Just 98 years to go!
