Philadelphia area Ham Radio operators celebrate July 4th holiday with 13 Colonies Special Event | Southgate Amateur Radio News

Amateur radio stations operating from the 13 original U.S.

Russ Roberts‘s insight:

This sounds like a fun event.  The operating schedule runs from 01 to 06 July and allows amateur radio operators around the world to learn about the original 13 colonies and the city where Independence was born (Philadelphia).  The theme for the historic event will be “Colonial Currency.”  Each of the original 13 colonies will be represented by a special callsign block, K2A-K2M.  The Philadelpha group will use the call WM3PEN and will issue a special QSL card featuring the First Bank of the United States.  Selected cities from the original 13 colonies will also issue special QSL cards.  For details, visit  Aloha de Russ (KH6JRM).
