Maine Bicentennial Special Event

This week I have been participating as one of the 12 special event stations working the Maine Bicentennial Ham Radio Special Event.  In 1820 when Maine received statehood there were 9 counties, thus for this even there are 9 stations 1 per county.  There are also 3 bonus stations that were had relevance at the time, such as Boston.

I am operating the W1K station for Kennebec county and am trying to work as many bands and modes as possible.  Most contacts have been on 20m and 40m SSB with some CW and digital mode contacts as well.
