In 2014 ARRL and its volunteers will activate W1AW/portable stations in each of the 50 states, territories and possessions. The goal is for the W1AW/ portable operations to be as active as possible during the Tuesday night local to Wednesday time frames 0000Z Weds to 2359Z Tuesday). All bands and modes may be used. ARRL will offer Worked All States Awards for QSOs made with the W1AW/ portable operations and incentives to work each activation, even if the state has already been worked.
There will also be a points-gathering activity, during which W1AW/portable stations will be worth points. Each week there can be up to two W1AW/ portable operations from the states and one from a territory.
Alabama participation will be the week of the Alabama QSO party and again the week of October 15.
More information coming soon.
