Following the schedule for W1AW/x portable activity during 2014, next 
week will start the second of the two weeks W1AW/7 will air from 
Arizona. The first W1AW/7 Arizona satellite activity in March was 
successful (thanks, John K8YSE, for making good use of the K8YSE/7 
station in Arizona that week), and I'm hoping for another successful week
starting at 0000 UTC Wednesday, 27 August (2000 EDT/1700 PDT on 
Tuesday, 26 August).

I will be operating as W1AW/7 on weeknights, and plan on more activity 
during the Labor Day weekend (30 August-1 September) that falls within 
this one-week period. I am working on having additional operators for the 
weekday passes, when I won't be able to get on the radio myself. As with 
any of the W1AW/x activities, ARRL will handle the QSLing. ARRL will 
upload all W1AW/7 logs to Logbook of the World, in addition to the paper 
QSL cards that will be available later.

If you also work other bands and want to work W1AW/7 from Arizona 
next week, the W1AW/7 Arizona activity coordinator, Ned Stearns AA7A, 
has a schedule showing when the other stations operating as W1AW/7 will 
be on - and on what band/mode combinations. This schedule is still being 
assembled, so more slots will be filled in as we get closer to next week.  
You can see that schedule at:


Satellite operating times will not appear on Ned's schedule, as I am 
coordinating that part of the W1AW/7 effort.  I'll use the AMSAT-BB list
and my Twitter @WD9EWK feed (http://twitter.com/WD9EWK ) to send
out updates for the W1AW/7 satellite activity. 

Good luck, and 73!
