SOAPBOX: This is another WQ6X portable operation from the QTH of N6GEO in Brentwood, Ca. Because I was also running the SARTG RTTY contest, I was hoping to use the Flex-1500 for NAQP SSB at the same time and found that I was lacking microphone cables so I swapped in my trusty ICOM-7000 for the NAQP work. Antenna was a ground mounted Hustler 6-BTV vertical loaded with radials which even tuned on 160 for one QSO. The Solar Flux jumped mid contest from 123 to 149 and then back to 129. Solar noise on 40-M was HORRIBLE making weak signal copy difficult. 10-meters was dead all day and 15-meters didn't really open until about 22:00z. 40 & 80 meters were late in opening but then produced some Q's. It was a kick getting QSO credit for a couple of lighthouse stations; most notably OZ5ESB in Denmark and KD7JB in Washington State.
