    If want to visit a true sampling of the TOP operators from the 13 Colonies, then listen to them on the air! They participate via invitation only!

    Kind of a slow start for this!! Only W1G on this evening and he was on 40M with no West Coast Prop. Maybe it will heat up tomorrow. Meanwhile 6M was open to the East Coast. I worked a couple VA stations. Wish the W1* was on 6!!

    Is it just me or are the stations hard to hear? I've tried both my mobile and base stations. I can hear everyone else calling, but not the station itself.
    I'm only at 4....am I the only one?

    Pat,. W1? The 13 colonies are all. K2 callsigns.

    Not too bad here, at least on CW anyway. Haven't listened for SSB. Ithink I got 7 today.

    What bands are you trying?

    I got beaten up pretty good last night on 80m SSB. Put 290 contacts into the K2E coffer in about 2.25 hours. Broke 1,000 total contacts some time this morning while on 40m.

    Are they allow to operate on 17 Meters? A little confuse here.

    Did a little research, I guess Special Event station is not consider a contest. Learn something new.

    20m mainly.
    But I cannot hear anything on 17.
    40 I heard K2K 30min ago like he was next door. But I already had that state.
    I could hear K2G ok.... 5/3 maybe, but had that state as well.

    I have a Mosley tri bander, BUT it's a really low 18-20' temporary mount, but I figured I SHOULD be able to hear them.
    When I've heard stations I'm able to make the qso quickly.
    Good thing this event goes on for another 6 days! This will be my first Special Event Certificate and I really want it! :)

    If you don't have it, K2M (PA) is strong here and working a bunch on 14303. I can't find another station on any of the spotted frequencies. I need A, F, H, I, and the two bonus stations.
