[amsat-bb] Fwd: ARRL Centennial QSO Party - Satellite Operations

So far we've only had New York, Minnesota, and Hawaii active. W100AW
has been on a few passes and W100AW/4 was on for the Orlando Hamcation
a couple of weekends ago.

I know we have a few states scheduled for operations later this year,
and I'll be doing my part as W1AW/3 from the District of Columbia in
early July, but I have been disappointed in the lack of participation
by the satellite community so far.

Let's get the W1AW portable operations active on the birds! Contact
your state hosts and get on the air.

The Michigan coordinator (Randy, AA8R) tells me that they don't have
anybody for this week. Operations from Michigan start in two hours
(2/19/14 at 0000Z). If you're in Michigan, contact him at aa8r at aol.com
and get on the air!

The Centennial QSO Party is supposed to be a celebration of all facets
of amateur radio, lets get more of the operations on the satellites

Does anyone have plans to be active on the satellites as W1AW/X? First
up is W1AW/4 in North Carolina and W1AW/8 in West Virginia for the
week of January 1st.

Contact your state/territory/district's hosts and get W1AW portable
operations on the birds for this year long event!

I'll be activating W1AW/3 in the District of Columbia on the birds
during the week of July 2nd and I'll be posting detailed operating
plans as that week approaches.
