Past paper logs from various summer activations were entered into a ACL Database by Jim, KA1ZOU, and entered by our QSL Manager, Chuck, N1CKT into Logbook of the World (LotW). At this moment in time, W1SYE has 46 confirmed states, and 25 confirmed countries in LotW. 2,934 contact have been entered so far, resulting in 840 confirmed contacts.
What states are we missing? Alaska, Hawaii, Maine, and Montana.
What countries do we already have confirmed? A smattering from the Caribbean and Europe, and the official list can be found by clicking: W1SYE LOTW DXCC 25 Confirmed
A nice goal for the summer would be to obtain Worked All States (WAS) andd DX Century Club (DXCC) status for the club.
Thanks to all the hard working activators too!
Rich Russell (KC1ARO) and Paul Silverzweig (N1PSX) have hiked Northwestern RI on January 7th to put “TR23”, which is part of the Washington – Rochambeau Revolutionary Route National Historic Trail National Scenic Trail, on the air (they were in the Parker Woodland).
They were on the air a bit less than 2.5 hours and worked 236 stations using the callsign N1PSX.
Future NPOTA activations will be announced on the Club Website and will more than likely use the callsign W1SYE (now that we have a LotW account setup, thanks to trustee John Mills).

The one for this NPOTA event looks like this:
Rich Russell (KC1ARO) and Paul Silverzweig (N1PSX) have hiked up in Northwestern RI to put “TR23”, which is part of the Washington – Rochambeau Revolutionary Route National Historic Trail National Scenic Trail, on the air (they are in the Parker Woodland. They are using N1PSX as the call, and are on 14.252 MHz.
By the way, the pile-up is huge. They are working a station every 15 seconds with no signs of it stopping. And I can’t say this enough — they are doing a fantastic job of managing a large pileup.
This is a BIG Deal for the ARRL. Much like the Centennial QSO Party, they have setup dedicated webpages for this, leaderboards, etc. Once the QSOs are uploaded to LotW, you will receive your points for working that park automatically.

Click on the “On the Air” tab and look for TR23 and you will see Paul and Rich’s details — as well as all the other parks on the air.
Once the LotW setup is complete NCRC member can start using the W1SYE call sign for other NPOTA events.
Rich, KC1ARO, making NPOTA Chasers Happy
Paul, N1PSX, Dulcet Tones Make for a Joyful Pileup
