Last night I was NCS for my club’s HF net. Right after our net cleared, K2C, a station in RI started calling CQ for the 13 Colony Special Event, and I picked him up, along with several of the other net members. At that point, I figured it was prime time for 40 and 80 meters up and down the East Coast, so I went looking for some others. About 45 minutes later I had worked 11 of the 13 stations. It took quite awhile to find a PA station (I thought that was unusual), and I was still missing K2L in SC before I turned in for the night. This morning after my club breakfast, I found K2L on 40 meter CW as well as WM3PEN, the Liberty Bell Bonus station, completing a clean sweep of all original colonies plus a bonus station:
My thanks to all the operators of stations K2A to K2L for making this a fun event.
