ORIGINAL 13 COLONIES
July 1st-5th 2011
The 4th of July, 2011 lands on a Monday, which means that you can work us starting Friday through Tuesday. Due to popular demand, we will run the event all 5 days like in 2010. Times will be: 12:01 AM Eastern start on July 1st, (That's one minute after midnight, early Friday morning, July 1st) to 11:59 PM Eastern ending on July 5th (One minute to midnight, late Tuesday night, July 5th).http://www.13colonies.info/
GUARANTEED at least two S.E. stations per colony state. Also included - Super contest stations, multi-operator Club stations & OM & XYL teams.
Three stations (possibly four) will operate using the K2L Special Event Call from South Carolina as part of this event. Two (possibly three) stations operating on voice and one on Digital modes.http://www.13colonies.info/SC13Col.htm
If you contact one of us, please spot us.
QSL to KG4RUL for all SC contacts (good on QRZ).
NOTE: One contact with a SC Colonies state is sufficient for credit for that state. Additional contacts on other bands or with the other state stations will not get you any more credit. Please limit yourselves to one contact per state, so that others may have a chance.
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.
We thank you for your consideration in advance..
