ARLX013 ARRL Granted Use of W100AW for League's Centennial

The FCC has authorized the Maxim Memorial Station W1AW to also use
the call sign W100AW during 2014, the ARRL's centennial year.
Contacts made from the Maxim Memorial Station in Newington, from
regional Centennial conventions, and during the IARU HF Championship
will use W100AW, with portable designators as appropriate. The "W1AW
WAS" operations throughout 2014 from each of the 50 states will use
W1AW, not W100AW.

Bulletins and code practice transmissions during 2014 also will
still use W1AW. Contacts with W100AW will be worth 100 points in the
ARRL Centennial QSO Party. To help kick off the ARRL Centennial,
special W100AW activity will begin at 0500 UTC on January 1, 2014
(midnight in Newington), and will include participation in ARRL's
Straight Key Night; one CW station will use Hiram Percy Maxim's
straight key. Activity will continue throughout New Year's Day.
