13 Colonies Special Event Begins July 1

June 19, 2023

Each year the US celebrates its independence on July 4th and with that holiday comes the 13 Colonies special event. This year the event takes place between July 1 and July 8. 13 special callsigns will be active, one callsign for each original United States colony. In addition, 3 bonus stations will be active, operating from France, Great Britain, and Philadelphia.

Participants can submit a log sheet and a suggested donation of $5 to receive a special certificate. Working all stations is not required to receive a certificate.

Happy Independence Day!
