I've just heard from Gary, N2AUO, who is interested in activating Pennsylvania on the satellites during the Original 13 Colonies special
event this week. That gives us 10 of the Original 13 Colonies that will be active on the satellites during this event! Thanks to Gary for
his interest in participating.
At the request of the event's organizer (Ken. KU2US), those of us active on the satellites will be IDing with our own call sign/special
event call. For example, I will be IDing as N3TL/K2G. I'll add that I'm the station in Georgia for the special event, just to be clear.
Ken also has advised that he is adding a special satellite designator to the certificates for those who earn them via satellite contacts.
Thanks to him for doing this.
For the latest information on the Original 13 Colonies Special Event, please go to www.QRZ.com/ku2us.
The event begins at 1300 UTC July 1 and ends at 0359 UTC on July 5.
73 to all,
Tim - N3TL
On the 2145Z AO-51 pass i was able to get theses one below those with their call sign and heard those with a H
K2T/Mobile-NC (Will count as a contact for North Carolina on Certificate)
30% on the first shot! did a list exist with the satellite operator call sign? As a suggestion those available can post here which
satellite they will be listening and operate.
