Several people have asked how I keep track of the W1AW portable stations I have worked.
Attached is a PDF for the next few weeks, if you are looking for a summary sheet. I came up with this format when the stations first started the portable operations in January. It allows you to quickly see if you need a station on any given band/mode or if you have already worked them.
The reason I have the band/mode ghost printed in alternating columns, is I found out real quick as you get over towards the right side of the page, it is hard to make sure which line you are on without them as a guide.
I high light the band/mode in yellow as I work them. When they are confirmed in LoTW, I go back and black them out. That way you can make sure you are not missing a spot that you thought you had when the stations activate for their 2nd week.
The lines for CW, SSB and RTTY at the bottom let you mark the different operating modes, if you are trying to get the special WAS for each individual mode. For instance, mark the CW block when you work your first CW station for that state, and you know you have that mode out of the way.
Hope this helps out.
