The 2021 edition of the annual 13 Colonies special event is July 1, 2021-1300 UTC to July 8, 2021-0400 UTC.  This year, a "clean sweep" (working stations in all 13 states that were the original 13 US Colonies) is possible via satellite!  Yes, one or more stations in each state have volunteered to be active on the satellites this year.  

More info on 13 Colonies is at , including information on the exchange, logging, individual state QSLs, and certificates. DXsummit is recommended for spotting, and many of the satellite ops are active on Twitter and self-spot there as well.
