concurrently with W1AW’s regular transmission schedule.

All users who connect to the conference server are muted.  Please
note that any questions or comments about this server should not be
sent via the “Text” window in EchoLink. Please direct any questions
or comments to w1aw@arrl.org .

In a communications emergency, monitor W1AW for special bulletins as
follows: Voice on the hour, Digital at 15 minutes past the hour, and
CW on the half hour.

UTC (10 AM to 12 PM ET), and then from 1700 UTC to 1945 UTC (1 PM to

I just received a note from Barbara Darling (NH7FY) concerning “a misc pile

of pipes, which could be parts of antennas or towers, stored in our back

yard.”  She’s getting ready to clear our her backyard and would like to

offer the pipes to anyone interested in taking the stuff from her property.

If you’re interested in these objects, please call Barbara at 982-9126 (home)

or 936-3377 (cell).
