This year I had the opportunity to participate in the 13 Colonies event as I was on vacation while the house was being painted. It was a fun event, especially as I had a plans to be out of town on the weekend so I had a somewhat limited time window to work on getting a clean sweep. I did manage it and got to use the 40m band a bit which I don’t normally do. I did manage to get one of the bonus stations as well which was nice.
I’ll certainly try to participate in this event again next year.
