6 meters seems open-ish so I'm going to to up to 50.290 exact, that is, my radio will be on 50.285 so I'm listening and transmitting on 50.290 exactly.

13 Colonies Again

Jerry N9AVY
 

FYI
 
 
13 COLONIES (Special Event). Once again the annual (the 9th) "13 Colonies
Special Event" will take place between 1300z, July 1st and 0400z July 7th.
The certificate is printed on heavy card stock. Stations working one state
or, as many as all 15, will be eligible for the certificate. A "Clean Sweep"
indicator will be affixed for those lucky enough to "Q" all 15. A special
endorsement will be attached for stations contacting their sister oper-
ation, WM3PEN, in Philadelphia, PA, where independence was declared. New
since 2015, the 13 Colonies have added a second sister event station.
GB13COL will operate from Durham, England. The 13 Colonies certificate
will have a Liberty Bell added for a contact with WM3PEN. They will also
offer a special QSL card printed just for this event. There should be at
least two stations from each on the 13 colonies on the air, as well as
Super contest stations, multi-operator Club stations and OM and XYL teams.
The U.S. original 13 colonies are CT-DE- GA-MA-MD-NC-NH-NJ-NY-PA-RI-SC-VA.
Special events stations mentioned are: K2A (NY), K2B (VA), K2C (RI),
K2D (CT), K2E (DE), K2F (MD), K2G (GA), K2H (MA), K2I (NJ), K2J (NC),
K2K (NH), K2L (SC), and K2M (PA). All HF bands will be in play, including
the WARC bands, with the exception of 60 meters. 2 meters and 6 meter
simplex are encouraged. All modes of operation should be represented -
SSB, CW, RTTY, Digital, and the Satellites. The mode of operation is up
to the individual colony state station. For more details on the stations,
suggested frequencies, QSL info and on how to obtain the special
certificate, see:              http://www.13colonies.info


Re: 40m

Yeah ya have to be a certain kind of individual to wade into one of the biggest contests out there with only a few watts.
It's kind of like swimming off the Great Reef with no shark repellant. ( or Cape Cod from what I just read)  Lots of great whites coming up here this season.
I guess I'll need a bigger boat.

Yep I noticed.  Stayed on 40m almost the whole FD because the action kept coming.  I saw at least 30 stations on the band at once at times.
Got a personal record of 40 Q's during the time I operated and that was QRP by the way.  I can only imagine what the big guns were doing.
It was a 40m feeding frenzy.  I sure hope it looks like that for the Firecracker.

40m was utilized  below 7070 down to at least 7069.  The upper end was utilized far above the usual band edge. There was also some activity on 80m during daylight hours.

Yes, I did. The waterfall was full (a "waterfull"? No, I wasn't creative--it was a typo that I started fixing.) much of the day.

Frankly I don't think that propagation changed just because someone in Newington scheduled an "event". (Remember, it's not a contest.) Makes you wonder what might happen if more of us used that band when we didn't think there was anyone to talk to.

Re: Field Day

Jerry N9AVY
 

Sorry I missed you.... was mostly doing search & pounce and chasing states where I needed grids.  Was also being "elitist" by avoiding 1x2 & 2x1 calls since most of them are "QSLing deadbeats" who only drag out those calls once a year for FD;  in past years have sent QSL via LoTW/Eqsl which have gone unanswered ... out of 94 only 10 LoTW confirmed so far.
 
Wasn't QRV  for as many hours as I would have liked, but make same observation that there were definitely more stations on this year than in years prior.  Think it's because it's a natural for GOTA stations who can handle the slower speed of PSK  and pick up 2 pts per contact rather than the 1 for SSB.
 
No entry to ARRL  for me either just send contacts to LOTW/Eqsl. 
 
BTW, heard lots of 8-landers on 20/40m so there was some propagation, but QRM was a problem because of many wide signals and people jumping on a frequency without checking if it was in use  (QRL ?).

I have used PSK for several years during Field Day. This year was the most users I have seen. Several years ago I only had maybe 20 PSK contacts but this year the screen was full for the entire time and on several bands. Very good propagation this year. I heard Jerry N9AVY and tried to call you but I think we were too close for propagation. I will probably not send mine in to ARRL but will do LOTW as soon as time permits.
