    In this episode of the Ham Radio 360 Podcast we discuss the upcoming 13 Colonies Special Event. I connected with Bob, ND7J, the webmaster for the event as well as an event operator from the state of North Carolina. I feature our conversation in this episode of HamRadio 360.

    The 13 Colonies Special Event is held during Independence Weekend each July and began in 2009, as a ‘One Time’ event. After logging over 12,000 contacts with just 13 operators, it’s founder Ken, KU2US, discovered he was onto something. Since it’s inception the event has grown exponentially with many more state operators and a network of help that spans the globe.

    I also share some recent podcast appearances of mine. Firstly, Horses in the Morning as I try to explain Ham Radio in less than 10 min and the Rain Report with Hap Holly (KC9RP).
