ARLB009 W1AW to limit transmit schedule

In response to an executive order from Connecticut Governor Ned
Lamont that all non-essential businesses and not-for-profit entities
reduce in-person workforces because of COVID-19 pandemic
concerns, W1AW has slightly altered its transmission schedule.

W1AW has suspended its morning code practice and qualifying run
transmissions, beginning March 24, 2020.  However, W1AW’s evening
transmissions, including qualifying runs, will be sent as usual —
there are no changes to the evening transmit schedule.

W1AW remains closed to the public.

further details.
