Any satellite station can work the 13 Colonies states off the birds. Granted, you have only 15-20 minutes for a pass, but this makes it more interesting and challenging.Call Dave and his "Space Guys" on the birds, and have some fun.PLEASE NOTE: K2A/NY offers a fantastic Satellite Special Event card for 2012. Only 300 printed. QSL ONLY to WB2OQQ
Certificate Endorsement-WM3PEN-2014:Special event station/Club WM3PEN (For William Penn) Will be celebrating the 4th of July week Special Event Again, representing Independence Hall in Philadelphia, PA and featured on their qsl card will beBenjamin Franklin! They will participate with us during our 4th of July week event. If you make a "Q" with WM3PEN, make a full data entry on your log sheet you send to me for the certificate, and a "LIBERTY BELL"endorsement with the WM3PEN call, will be placed on your certificate.Send them an SASE, IRC or Green Stamp ($1). Look up WM3PEN at QRZ.COM. This will add to the fun of the Independence week celebrations. We all thank WM3PEN for participating together with us for this great patriotic holiday week!

2014-FOR 2014, THIS CERTIFICATE FEATURES THE FOUNDERS AND PATRIOTS OF THE REPUBLIC. 13 FULL COLOR EFFIGIES OF IMPORTANT GOVERNMENT, CIVIL AND MILITARY PATRIOTS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE FOUNDING OF OUR COUNTRY! WITH BLAZING VIBRANT COLORS!
ALSOwe ask all operators to please have consideration for other stations. Please limit your contacts to one Colony state each if possible. This will give the stations with "no gain" antenna's, stations working 100W,QRP/Mobiles and DX a chance to get all "13" too! We are out to have some fun this 4th of July week, and will try to appease everyone. I say this because of the projected participation we will have this year. All indicators are pointing to another increase in "QSO's"over 2013. We did over 81,000 "Q's". We thank you for your consideration in advance
DX STATIONS:There is NO increased fee for DX stations for postage if you wish to have the certificate. All funds must be in US. Dollars. QSL cards to each individual state stations-DIRECT. Sorry no buro.
HF SPECIAL EVENT COLONY STATION AND STATE CALL SIGNS.All operators will use the Special Event 1X1 callsigns, broadcasting theirHOME CALL as needed for QSLing.ANY STATION THAT IS NOT A K2A THRU K2M, is not affiliated with the 13 Colonies event. Please do not get confused.
