2017 13 Colonies Special Event

Durham District and Amateur Radio Society (DADARS) was proud to participate as a "Bonus Station" for the 2017 13 Colonies Special Event. GB13COL (Ofcom NOV) hosted from the QTH of DADARS (G4EUZ) within Bowburn Community Centre, Durham and offered SSB, CW & Digital Modes for the popular event. As well as the historical connection between our two countries, this will make it more challenging for our Amateur Radio friends across the pond. During the 2016 event 139,772 QSO's were logged and numbers are increasing yearly.

George III was born on 4 June 1738 in London, son of Frederick, Prince of Wales and Augusta of Saxe-Gotha. He became heir to the throne when his father died in 1751, succeeding his grandfather George II in 1760. He was the first Hanoverian monarch to use English as his first language. In 1761, George married Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz and they enjoyed a happy marriage, with 15 children.
