State manager for 13 Origional Colonies Special Event - K2I New Jersey


State QSL route for 2014 via N2RO


13 Colonies Special Event
JULY 1-6, 2014


2013 QSO Count!

Click on a State Name, in the image above, to see details of that State's Special Event Station(s)
The theme for 2014 will be "Revolution War Era Colonial Currency". The certificate is printed on heavy card stock. Stations working one state or, as many as all 13, will be eligible for the certificate. A "Clean Sweep" indicator will be affixed, for those lucky enough to "Q" all 13. A special endorsement will be attached for stations contacting our sister operation, WM3PEN, in Philadelphia, PA.
The colony stations will operate from Tuesday, July 1st, 9:00 AM Eastern (1300 UTC) until Sunday Night, July 6th, 00:00 (Midnight) Eastern (0400 UTC July 7th).
NEW FOR 2014
The 13 Colonies will have TWO sister events: Our old friends WM3PEN will again participate from Philadelphia, PA, where independence was declared.; Added will be W3FT from Baltimore, MD, commemorating the writing of our Nation Anthem, The Star Spangled Banner in 1814.
The 13 Colonies certificate will have a Liberty Bell added for a contact with WM3PEN. A W3FT contact will have a special 15 star 1812 US flag of the period added to the 13 Colonies certificate and will also offer a special QSL card printed just for this event.
WM3PEN will be on D-STAR each evening from 7-11 PM Eastern Time. Please see the WM3PEN Page for details.
13 Colonies Yahoo Group
The Original 13 Colonies Special Event has started a Yahoo Group for colony stations to post their operating schedules and other information about their state operations. This is a public group and a Yahoo membership is NOT necessary for reading of those messages .
Only group members can post information. PLEASE do not request membership to the Yahoo group unless you are a verifiable, 13 Colonies, station operator!
QRP Operation
The 13 Colonies Special Event is enlisting one dedicated SSB/CW QRP operator for each state for the 2014 event and beyond. No special station requirements, except the operator must be a General class or higher. This will be a QRP to QRP operation only.
We want to give the low power QRP station a chance to get a 13 Colony States "Clean Sweep" endorsement on your certificate. We know the thrill of a QRP station breaking a pile up, but with 200+ QRO/and higher stations in a pile up, well, most of the times +/-5 watts just wont work.
If interested, contact KU2US via email. I am listed at QRZ. You must be located in one of the Colony States. NOTE: New York's QRP position is filled.
Digital Operators
PLEASE do not send your macros. The ONLY information required to confirm a contact is:
Sending more information than this takes a LOT of time and may keep another operator from getting a needed contact.
