This year WQ6X ran the SSB WPX contest solo from a cabin in Twain Harte California. The low Solar Flux & high A/K indices were quite a disappointment. The upside is that there were a plethora of new/unusual prefixes to drive the scores higher and higher. For the 1st time in WPX I heard QSO counts of over 7,000 - wOw! I ran the ICOM-7000 with a Yaesu FT-900 (and it's internal tuner) as backup into an SB-200 amplifier. Antennas were an OCFD dipole at 55 feet and a pair of phased Cobras as a 1/2-wave sloper pointing to the South Pacific at 65 feet.
