ARRL Centennial QSO Party (October)

The ARRL Centennial QSO Party is a year-long operating event that celebrates hams making contacts. In the end you will have accumulated points, worked new stations and made new friends all over the world. W1AW will be on the air from every state and most territories, and it will be easy to work WAS working only W1AW portable operations. This is the first ARRL-sponsored operating event where every member is worth at least one point, so work as many points as you can during 2014! Earn awards based upon points, working all states or working W1AW portable in every state and territory. This is an on-the-air event like no other.

We are seeking Virginia host stations and operators for the 2014 ARRL Centennial QSO Party and would like to maximize operations as much as possible across all bands/modes....  We are seeking Virginia HAMS ((PVRC and others with Ops savvy and experience running pile-ups)) to operate as W1AW/4 during VA's two weeks for the Centennial QSO Party....  Ops will be from your station/QTH....   Please contact  K4EU (( for access to the Ops Schedule Spreadsheet so you can add your preferred operating time/date/mode to the Ops Schedule spreadsheet below.  ARRL has stated that host stations/owners who will air W1AW/4 should be ARRL members.   Individual operators of ARRL member host multi-op stations need not be members.  Per ARRL, host stations/operators are requested to operate within the General Class band segments when possible for maximum QSO exposure.  Logs, in .adi format, should be forwarded to K4EU (( as soon as possible at the conclusion of our operating week.  Please keep in mind our on-the-air decorum will directly represent PVRC and ARRL.
