Amateurs using the callsigns W1W, W1B, W1Z, and WB1Z will make two-way contact with other amateurs across all bands on SSB, AM, CW, and digital modes.

A historical sheet will also be available for download. If you or someone you know might be interested in operating one of the special stations, please contact Larry Krainson, W1AST, at [email protected] Seeking New England operators only at this time.
