The ARRL Centennial W1AW portable operations taking place throughout 2014 from each of the 50 states are now in Florida and Arkansas. They will transition at 0000 UTC on Wednesday, November 26 (the evening of November 25 in US time zones), to Delaware (W1AW/3), Louisiana (W1AW/5), and Puerto Rico (W1AW/KP4). So far during 2014, W1AW has visited each of the 50 states for at least 1 week, and by year’s end W1AW will have been on the air from every state at least twice.

The ARRL 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.

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. Participants must work W1AW/1 in Connecticut.) A W1AW WAS certificate and plaque will be available.

An ARRL Centennial QSO Party leader board shows participants 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) 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.

Another excellent post-Field Day report.  This time, we hear from amateur radio operators belonging to the Moosehorn Amateur Radio Club of Alaska.  Club members set up three emergency radio stations and contacted between 400-500 fellow hams across the nation and the world with morse code and voice.  The club also administered amateur radio license exams from their emergency trailer at the Skyview High School parking lot.  Thousands of amateur radio operators from American Samoa, Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands joined their fellow hams on the U.S. mainland for the nation’s largest emergency communications exercise this past weekend (28-29 June 2014).  Hundreds of hams operated from home stations, civil defense offices, police stations, and hospitals.  Aloha de Russ (KH6JRM).

Russ Roberts‘s insight:

A group of amateur radio operators, engineers, and astronomers has successfully regained control of the International Sun-Earth Explorer deep space probe.  Space College, the crowdfunded team that has been trying to “resuscitate” the long abandoned spacecraft ( it was launched in 1978), said Thursday that “we are now in command of the ISEE-3 spacecraft.”  In the weeks ahead, the volunteer team “will make an assessment of the spacecraft’s health and refine the techniques to fire its engines and bring it back to an orbit near Earth.” The final communications link between Earth and the ISEE-3 was provided by the Arecibo Radio Observatory in Puerto Rico.  Talk about a high-gain antenna!  Congratulations on this achievement.  Aloha de Russ (KH6JRM).
