W1AW 2014 PORTABLE OPERATIONS

for the 2014 ARRL CENTENNIAL

 

...di IK0XBX  (14 aprile 2014)

Buonasera a tutti...., ritengo opportuno condividere con i colleghi che praticano le HF questa interessante iniziativa dell'ARRL: quest'anno l'ARRL per festeggiare i suoi 100 anni, ha attivato la stazione W1AW/x portatile da tutti i 50 stati e dai "possedimenti" d'oltremare. Ogni settimana sono attive due stazioni da due diversi stati, su tutte le bande HF in tutti i modi operativi e, cosa importante, 24 ore su 24 operate da BIG STATIONS, collegabili anche con modesti mezzi. L'occasione per lavorare tutti i 50 stati USA (compresi i rari Wyomimg, Nord e Sud Dakota, Idaho, Oregon, ecc.) è unica, ed i segnali arrivano sempre e forte.

Scaricate immediatamente il calendario delle attivazioni, dal sito dell'ARRL. In questo momento arrivano fortissimo con W1AW/1 dal Massachutes, W1AW/4 dalla Virginia e W1AW/KP4 da Portorico, dal 16 aprile saranno attivi da W1AW/0 dal rarissimo Nord Dakota e da W1AW/5 dal Mississipi (attenzione, sul calendario le date sono in formato USA, mese/giorno/anno) ed è indicato il nominativo della stazione che ospita la W1AW/x (come potete notare tutte stazioni BIG). Ho preparato anche un altro modulo (ne ho stampato uno che uso come tappetino per il mouse per averlo sempre sottomano HI) dove sono riportati i stati, i call che saranno utilizzati, e le caselle da spuntare man mano che si collegano sulle varie bande nei vari modi, in modo da avere subito la situazione sottocontrollo.

Ovviamente l'ARRL ha istituito pure un diploma per coloro che faranno il WAS collegando tutte le stazioni W1AW/x nel corso del 2014 e una sorta di maratona con punteggi diversi in base alle stazioni collegate (contando come punteggio anche i soci ARRL anche molti di noi valgono 1 punto per chi ci collega HI); per questi diplomi vi rimando direttamente al sito ARRL dove troverete tutti i regolamenti ( http://www.arrl.org/centennial-qso-party) Non preoccupatevi per gli Stati che hanno già trasmesso in questi 4 mesi..., perché saranno di nuovo attivi nell'arco del 2014 ed avrete occasione per collegarli tutti.

Complimenti a Francesco IK0FUX che è al 6° posto italiano nei collegamenti con le stazioni W1AW/x attivate finora (141 qso fatti nelle varie bande e modi, tra l'altro non aggiornati con le ultime attivazioni) !!! Per qualunque chiarimento sono a disposizione, se avete dubbi non fatevi problemi a mandarmi una mail.
