160-Meter Transatlantic Centenary QSO Party - 0200 to 0800 UTC,
December 12, 2021

ARRL and the Radio Society of Great Britain (RSGB) are jointly
sponsoring this event to celebrate the achievement of transatlantic
communications by radio amateurs 100 years ago.

ARRL and RSGB will activate special event stations for 6 hours (0200 -
0800 UTC) on December 12. The RSGB will activate GB2ZE from Scotland,
with a team of stations from the GMDX Group sharing operating duties.
ARRL will activate W1AW. The stations will operate only on CW. If
transatlantic propagation holds up, the stations may continue to
operate beyond 0800 UTC. The over-the-air exchange will be your call
sign and signal report.

Participants who successfully contact one or more of the stations will
be able to download a commemorative certificate. The GMDX Group of
Scotland will award a quaich -- a traditional Scottish drinking cup
representing friendship -- to the first stations in North America and
the UK to complete contacts with both W1AW and GB2ZE during the QSO
Party. For more details on this event, see www.arrl.org/transatlantic
<https://www.arrl.org/transatlantic>.
