This was another collaborative effort from N6GEO & WQ6X at George's QTH in Brentwood Ca. (EB Section) For this contest we ran completely SDR, switching between an SDR-1500 at one table (with great N1MM voice keying) and an SDR-1000 (with only a single voice playback). Antennas included a TH3-jr @7mh and a 6-BTV Vertical with a 160-attachment that never really came thru for us. While getting a clean-sweep wasn't easy we finally accomplished the goal thanks to W6TK, VO1KVT & AF7Z (in that order). N6GEO & WQ6X have mixed feelings about whether or not the W6K callsign was a blessing or a curse. Some stations thought this call was COOL. At other times people just couldn't get that it was INTENTIONALLY a 1x1 call. Oh well..... The Solar flux and A/K indices were largely on our side; except for 10-meters after 22:00z on Sunday (and into Monday) Because of the 6-BTV failure, our 75/40 operation was limited on Saturday nite. We were disappointed at the less than expected turnout on 75 & 40 meters Sunday afternoon/evening. We always end on 75 meters; more stations should follow suit and give us all a final shot at the locals.
