Special Event Station: 13 Colonies

This holiday weekend there are several special event stations on HF/VHF/UHF that are all part of the 13 Colonies Special Event.  I have already contacted several of the stations that are spread out all over the bands.  The stations can generally be found on the “13” frequency of the bands (i.e. 14.313, 7.213, etc.) but they are also on other frequencies.  TIP: Use a DX cluster to spot these stations! I used the K9USA DX Cluster to find them.

More info can be found here:  http://www.13colonies.info/

They do give out a nice certificate that is printed on heavy card stock.

Here are the stations that you will hear on the bands:

* 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

I really enjoyed working Richie at the K2K New Hampshire station.  He was very enthusiastic and got others on the band fired up and patriotic!

GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!  Have a great Independence day!!!
