The 2019 Thirteen Colonies Special Event begins today! There are stations in each of the states that grew from the original Thirteen Colonies plus two bonus stations – WM3PEN in Philadelphia, PA and a GB13COL in the United Kingdom. We have a great team of operators for the New Hampshire Colony this year. You can check them out here. You can find where the event stations are operating by using the 13 Colonies Spotting cluster.
In addition to collecting the QSL cards from each of the state and bonus special event stations, there is a very nice certificate available for working one or more of the 13 Colonies stations. See the event website for details.
K2K New Hampshire will be operating from a number of locations in the great state of New Hampshire including from AB1OC/AB1QB. We will be operating SSB, CW, Digital (FT8 and RTTY), and on Satellites! We will have a QRP station operating as K2K/QRP and we are going to spend some time on 6m and perhaps 2m and 70cm if we have some Tropo openings. I hope that our readers will take some time and participate in the 13 Colonies Special Event this year. Its great fun for all involved. Happy July 4th the United States of America!
