Along with the Ohio W1AW/8 operation this week is the 2014 Ohio QSO Party.  
The OhQP runs from 1600Z Saturday to 0400Z Sunday.
We will have the W1AW/8 stations active in the OhQP. They will be swapping  
bands and modes between the various stations in various counties, so don't 
be  surprised to hear W1AW/8 in a different county than he was earlier. And 
just as  is the case for mobiles, you can work W1AW/8 again from the 
different counties  for OhQP credit. However, there is no further credit for the 
ARRL Centennial  Celebration for repeat QSOs with W1AW/8.
The OhQP has a serial number as part of its exchange. The W1AW/8 stations  
in the OhQP will be passing out a serial number and their Ohio county. If 
you  don't have a serial number handy, just go ahead and give a RS/T. He'll 
log it as  QSO number 59 or 599. Since the W1AW stations are not a part of the 
normal OhQP  competition, there will be no problems for the W1AW stations 
not having  received a "real" serial number.
But we do hope you will be able to take part in the OhQP by working lots of 
 Ohio stations besides W1AW/8. The exchange is serial number and QTH 
(State/VE  Province/"DX"). You can work the same station on each band/mode, and 
work mobile  and rover stations (as well as W1AW/8) again as they change 
Full OhQP rules, planned operations, awards, etc., are available  at  
_www.ohqp.org_ (http://www.ohqp.org) 
The OhQP is on 80-10 SSB and CW. No WARC bands or digital. There will still 
 be plenty of regular W1AW/8 activity on the digital modes and WARC  bands.
We all hope to see you this weekend!
