Good evening,

The W1AW/3 operation from the District of Columbia wrapped up just
over an hour ago. On the satellites, 125 total QSOs were logged with
73 different stations. 55 grids, 30 states, and 6 DXCCs (United
States, Mexico, Cuba, Brazil, England, and Ireland) were worked.

Total by satellite:

SO-50 - 54
FO-29 - 45
AO-73 - 17
AO-7 Mode B - 9

The 73 non-dupe QSOs represent the fifth highest total among W1AW
portable operations active on the satellites thus far.

I enjoyed the event immensely. In addition to my satellite operation,
I operated several shifts on HF from W3DQ's station in northwest DC
and got the opportunity to work some massive pileups. It was quite
something to call CQ once or twice and have what seemed like half the
world come back to you at once!

While the District of Columbia does not count towards the W1AW WAS
certificate, those who earn the certificate will receive an
endorsement sticker noting that you have worked the District of

QSLing will be done by the ARRL and via LoTW. See the website for
details: http://www.arrl.org/centennial-qso-party

Thanks to all for the QSOs! I look forward to working a few more
states on the satellites over the last few months of this event.
