This was another last minute WQ6X remote operation from NX6T ("NashVille") in Fallbrook - approx 900' above sea level. While I dabbled in the other QSO parties happening this weekend, my main focus was the CQMM contest. I ran the usual Elecraft K3 into an ACOM 2000a amplifier dialed back to about 990 watts to keep things cool in the shack. The high bands were scanned with an adroitly rotatable C-31 yagi at 13mh on tower 1 with 2-elements on 40-meters and an inverted Vee on 80, all 14mh. There was a LOT of atmospheric static this weekend making weak signal copy difficult. Often a band would seem dead (like 15 meters). A CQ call beaming South America for the contest would yield a call from V51 in Namibia - go figure. 80 meters was a disappointment overall and Asia never materialized on 15. The openings I used to experience on 15 meters now happen on 20 as the MUF drops lower more quickly in the bottom of the sunspot cycle 24. One of the nice features in this contest is the exchange - it was nice to actually see how MANY YL's, QRP stations and Multi-OP stations were actually on the air.
