13 Colonies Net Control Ops

PAARC Members:  It’s time to plan for the original 13 Colonies Special Event. Bob Josuweit/WA3PZO is asking for net control operators for WM3PEN (Philadelphia Special Event Station).  Any mode is appreciated. Please respond to Bill/W3FRB at w3frb at comcast dot net. Bill will relay the net control information for PAARC.

PAARC members had so much fun participating in the 13 Colonies Special Event in past years, that a few wanted to get more involved. This year some members will operate special event station WM3PEN for part of the time during this 6 day event. If you plan to participate and work colony stations, you’re encouraged to spot it for others at DX Summit. In 2015, over 126,000 total contacts were made in this event.
