As you probably are aware, the American Radio Relay League, in conjunction with its Centennial QSO party celebrating 100 years of existence as an organization of, by and for U.S. amateur radio operators, has authorized each state and territory to operate using the famous callsign W1AW.
Each state has been given two weeks of operation. Oklahoma’s first week of W1AW/5 operation came in early January, when K5CM and others did a great job handing out contacts to the multitudes.
Oklahoma’s second week begins August 13 Zulu (August 12 CDST). Edmond Amateur Radio Society, assisting the Oklahoma DX Association, is coordinating the second week of operation in our state and is looking for volunteers to operate on as many bands, modes and times as possible.
Our goals are 1) to give as many other operators around the country and the world a second chance to put W1AW/5 OK in the log for the WAS W1AW award and 2) to give as many OK operators as possible the chance to participate in what is truly an historic and unprecedented operating event.
Thanks to the Edmond Amateur Radio Society for this information.
