I spoke with williamsport FSS to file my IFR flight plan to annapolis, md. I was under the impression the tfr/ADIZ was no longer in effect. Having made this trip numerous times in VFR conditions, a VFR departure is common, efficient and desirable. With these factors in mind, I departed on a 1200 VFR code. Upon departure, I attempted immediate contact with potomac approach. After several attempts, potomac responded and advised me that a discrete transponder code was required. This immediately created stress in that I realized the ADIZ was in effect. At that point I was given phone numbers to call once I reached my destination which I did immediately.

Title: A HIGH TIME TB-20 PLT VIOLATED THE DC ADIZ.
Narrative: I SPOKE WITH WILLIAMSPORT FSS TO FILE MY IFR FLT PLAN TO ANNAPOLIS, MD. I WAS UNDER THE IMPRESSION THE TFR/ADIZ WAS NO LONGER IN EFFECT. HAVING MADE THIS TRIP NUMEROUS TIMES IN VFR CONDITIONS, A VFR DEP IS COMMON, EFFICIENT AND DESIRABLE. WITH THESE FACTORS IN MIND, I DEPARTED ON A 1200 VFR CODE. UPON DEP, I ATTEMPTED IMMEDIATE CONTACT WITH POTOMAC APCH. AFTER SEVERAL ATTEMPTS, POTOMAC RESPONDED AND ADVISED ME THAT A DISCRETE XPONDER CODE WAS REQUIRED. THIS IMMEDIATELY CREATED STRESS IN THAT I REALIZED THE ADIZ WAS IN EFFECT. AT THAT POINT I WAS GIVEN PHONE NUMBERS TO CALL ONCE I REACHED MY DEST WHICH I DID IMMEDIATELY.
