    06/20/2017
    The ninth annual 13 Colonies Special Event will take place July 1-7, with activity starting at 1300 UTC on July 1 and continuing until 0400 on July 7 (the evening of July 6 in US time zones).

    Participating stations try to contact all 13 Colony Stations plus two Bonus Stations — a clean sweep, a la ARRL November Sweepstakes. Stations in each of the original 13 colonies will be on the air using 1 2 special event call signs. The bonus stations will be WM3PEN in Philadelphia and GB13COL in Durham, England.

    Call signs and their respective states are K2A, New York: K2B, Virginia: K2C, Rhode Island: K2D, Connecticut: K2E, Delaware: K2F, Maryland: K2G, Georgia: K2H, Massachusetts: K2I, New Jersey: K2J, North Carolina: K2K, New Hampshire: K2L, South Carolina: K2M, Pennsylvania. Additional information is on the 13 Colonies website.

    This starts the Saturday after Field Day. I'm off for a 4 day weekend and going to try to work the 13 colonies. The bands are going to be wide open to the east coast, right?

    I ended with 9 of the states from camp over the weekend. I was able to work 3 more once returning home, but couldn't get MD to answer me. So, I missed the clean sweep by 1. Contacts with 12 states, plus I did get the WM3PEN bonus station.
