W6K Sweepstakes 2013 was another collaboration between WQ6X & N6GEO from George's QTH in Brentwood, Ca. Our idea of running both a FLEX-1000 & FLEX-1500 was sidelined at the last moment so we dropped the FLEX-1500 in favor of the FLEX-1000 with CW Skimmer. The skimmer certainly made for more effective S&P operations. While running a frequency, seeing new stations popup was very handy. We ran the FLEX-1000 into a pair of amps giving us 145 watts of pure power into a TH3-Jr and 6-BTV vertical. While we had no doubts that we would achieve a clean sweep, Vermont almost got away from us. VE stations were plentiful this year; especially from VE3. Amazingly, there was a dearth of VE6 & VE7 stations - wassup with that? The solar flux remained at a steady 142 with no major radio blackouts. Let's hope we will have similar conditions for SS Phone.
