The 13 Colonies event is a good way to test your stations ability to be heard on the East Coast.
If you get all 13 stations you can get a “Clean Sweep” award.
Chasing paper is not for every one but the the opportunity to work through some mild pile ups is a good experience for a new operator.
The stations where all over the bands but if you are a General or higher you had more opportunity to work the stations.
You can work the stations with SSB and some stations had durations of CW or digital modes.
