VA club members:
Our Virginia section has been selected by ARRL to operate the W1AW/4
callsign during the Virginia week of the Volunteers on the Air (VOTA)
program and our VA QSO Party. VOTA is a year-long event to honor all
the volunteers of Amateur Radio from ARRL staff to VEs and QSL Bureau card
sorters. Hams contacting a W1AW/4 station or volunteer can earn points
towards certificates and ranking at the end of the year. The Virginia VOTA
week is being hosted by the Sterling Park ARC.
You can operate Phone, CW and Digital modes on all
bands except WARC bands. W1AW/4 operators must use a computer logging
program that can export an ADIF file such as N1MM+ or similar and upload
the file using an upload utility provided by ARRL. Questions? Contact Evan,
KM4SK at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For complete information about VOTA operating and FAQs, go to vota.arrl.org
