July 1, 2016 (9 am EDT) to July 6, 2016 (12 Midnight EDT)
(July 1, 1300 UTC to July 7, 0400 UTC)
I’m seeking operators for K2H, the shared Special Event callsign for Massachusetts.
Please let all members of our club know about this opportunity. I can add
both W1AEC and [W1AEC station not available] home station operators to the official W1AEC / SEMARA operators list.
Do you want to have the experience of being called instead of calling to make a contact? You’ll get calls from both domestic and DX operators who want to qualify for the certificate endorsements. As an operator of K2H, you will automatically qualify for a certificate. You can also contact the other 13 Colonies S/E stations to earn your own endorsements.
You’d be surprised at how many contacts you can make with a wire antenna. You can work as many or few hours as you wish during the week. Each operator is self-scheduled by using an on-line calendar to reserve Band, Mode, and Hour blocks of air time. Also, at the end of the week, each operator submits their own Cabrillo logs to the Massachusetts QSO / QSL coordinator and QSO totals to KU2US, event organizer.
More details and the 2016 Operating Guidelines will be available shortly. Meanwhile, go to 13colonies.net for more info. There you can then click on Massachusetts / K2H for other details.
Note: this event is NOT a contest; so 12m, 17m and 30m bands may be used.
Contact me if you would like to participate and/or if you need more information, etc.
