Is this the only source for 1 x 1 calls?: http://www.1x1callsigns.org/

Just curious.  W7W operated Feb. 28, 2010 of this year.  They have photos of the event here: http://wb7tjd.org/wiki/W7W

HOWEVER, the callsign is NOT LISTED at the above 1 x 1 callsign website.

73, Bill

Bill, don't know the story on W7W, but as you note, they are not listed as having had the callsign on February 28.  This website seems to tie into the database for all 1 X 1 callsigns, so if it was granted for that date, it should be there.

It appears to be the complete database.  My use of N9N is listed from August 2008.

They are available thru one of five coordinators:
     ARRL
     W5YI Group Inc
     Western Carolina Amateur Radio Society/VEC Inc
     W4VEC Volunteer Examiners Club of America
     Laurel Amateur Radio Club Inc

It appears the 5 coordinators for the FCC are sharing the web page you cite:
http://www.1x1callsigns.org
and that it contains THE authoritative database of US FCC specials callsigns.

Sounds like W7W had an issue this year.

Yes it has.  Several.  But nothing was listed for the Lost Dutchman special event on Feb. 28th as in previous years....

Bill

Just a guess, but it might be a database issue, rather than something specific to W7W. There are no 1x1 calls registered for 2/28/2010 thru 3/5/2010. It looks like an entire week is missing from the database. I think that it is unlikely that there were no 1x1 calls in use for that entire week.
