This was a portable station setup in a tent behind the Monterey Center in Alameda. Client demands didn't allow station setup until 21:00z putting me on the air at 22:30z. I missed the 10-meter opening (if there was one) and caught the tail-end of 15. From there the MUF dropped rapidly, peaking 20 and then 40, with a pile of atmospheric noise 90 mins later on each. 160 wouldn't tune and 80 sported "one-way skip. Nevertheless, I managed 152 Q's (65% on 40) in about 6.5 hours of OP time. Where was the Solar Flux when wee needed it? Radio(s): ICOM 7000 & Kenwood TS-450(sat) for auxiliary chores. Butternut HF2-V on an umbrella stand with about 8 radials twisted about. Ron WQ6X
