Notes:
  • W1AW's schedule is the same throughout the year, so times are not in UTC.

  • Bulletins are sent using 45.45 baud Baudot, PSK31 in BPSK mode and MFSK16 in a daily revolving schedule.

  • Code practice texts are from QST. The source of each practice is given at the beginning of each practice, and at the beginning of alternate speeds.

  • On Tuesdays and Fridays at 5:30 PM Central, Keplerian elements for active amateur satellites are sent on the regular digital frequencies, using Baudot and PSK31.
