2013 Clean Sweep Plus for K9ZW Flex-6700 Operating from WI-001L

As mentioned in K9ZW Flex-6700 US Island Activation at WI-001L while one Washington Island (US Islands WI-001L) with my new (serial number #11) FlexRadio Systems Flex-6700 I did run a clean sweep of The US. Original Colonies S/E Group’s 5th Annual “Fourth of July Week – The Original 13 Colonies Special Event” including the bonus WM3PEN station.

Today’s mail brought a hansom bit of wallpaper (certificate):

K9ZW Clean-Sweep plus Bonus for the 2013 The Original 13 Colonies Special Event

These fun-events are always one of the simple pleasures of ham radio.  One cannot say there was any noteworthy technical accomplishment in making the contacts, but one can say there is a prideful patriotic pleasure nonetheless!

I’d written about this particular event several years ago (Blog Post Link: Original 13 Colonies Independence Day Special Event), though each year past I always came up short a good number of stations.

I guess one neat thing is this is the first wallpaper the Flex-6700 was used for, its first US Island Activation, and the first wallpaper I’ve ever earned using a radio that isn’t really out yet (as I am one of the Preview Edition stations).
