This is our 2nd Expedition to Modoc county as K6M (2011 was on the Sacramento river as K6S). We barely outdid our 2010 K6M effort (807 Q's) by reaching 813 Q's for 2012. We ALMOST had a Th3-Jr up to 45 feet, except the Rohn mast couldn't take it and crashed. Missing driven-element pieces kept us off 6m. 2m was non-existent from our location. Ron (WQ6X) operated an ICOM 7000 radio multi-mode on 160,80,20 & 10-SSB. George (N6GEO) used an FT-897 radio multi-mode on 40,15 & 10-CW Antennas: Rotatable Dipole for 20-m @ 25', a Cobra-Sloper for 40,15 & 10 and an HF2-V for 80,160 & 10. Our location (near Alturas) was a very LOW-NOISE location. And, thanks to a super line-filter on the generator I did not need to add in the MFJ-1026 noise canceller this year. There were CLEARLY Dx openings this year, but simply not enough volume of Dx stations looking to play CQP. While the solar Flux was depressingly low, the upside was virtually no geomagnetic noise. And, "skip" on 80 gave us a beautiful opening to the east and north east. On 160, I could hear y'all from the east coast, but the 1/8-wave vertical could only be heard in California. Pictures and goodies related to our CQP efforts can be found at http://WQ6X.Info/CQP Pictures and data relating to our CQP-2012 effort can be found at http://WQ6X.Info/CQP/CQP2012 Look for us on another expedition next year. From where? Where would YOU like us to go? 73's Ron - WQ6X George - N6GEO
