It’s that time again. The 12th Annual 13 Colonies Special Event is still happening on July 1st thru July 7th. Don’t miss your chance to work all 13 colonies and possibly the two bonus stations. This is a great event that everyone enjoys. Warm up those tubes (valves) and get involved.
For official and up-to-date information, visit their website.
All HF bands will be in play, including the WARC bands, with the exception of 60 meters. Simplex on 2 meters and 6 meters is encouraged.
The SE stations are on the east coast and, are very close to each other. It will be harder for these states to contact each other so, use of 40m-160m is encouraged.
All modes of operation may be represented – SSB, CW, RTTY, Digital, Etc. – The mode of operation is up to the individual colony state station. Please refer to the State information pages for details.
The exchange for this event is:
RS / RST / RSQ
STATE / PROVINCE or COUNTRY
