SB QST ARL ARLB024
ARLB024 W1AW to begin scheduled transmissions on 6 meters
starting January 2, 2018

Beginning with the 9 AM EST fast code practice on Tuesday, January
2, 2018, W1AW will add 6 meters – specifically 50350 kHz – to its
regular CW code practice, and CW, digital and phone bulletin
transmission schedule.

Prior to late 1989, W1AW had a presence on 6 meters for all its CW
practice, and regular bulletins.  Since that time however, the
station was absent on 6 meters, with the exception of regular
visitor operations and contests.

In addition to providing regularly scheduled transmissions on 6
meters, another goal is to act as a beacon on 6 meters, especially
from the Northeast US.

Signal reports will be welcome.  A web page that will allow
listeners to provide signal reports will be made available after the
start date.  Reports may also be emailed to W1AW at, w1aw@arrl.org.
