Despite the decreasing solar flux, being the last GiG of the year made this weekend hard to resist so I again setup operations in Brentwood Ca. (EB section), again as a Multi-OP. SOAPBOX: I reserved the callsign K6T JUST for this event (T = Ten), even tho on SSB we signed Kilowatt Six Tango. We used an Elecraft K2 into an Ameritron MA-1000 amplifier giving us about 450 watts into an ad-hoc TH-3jr yagi atop a 22-ft high military antenna mast, backed up by a camofloged 6-BTV Vertical. Band condx were WEIRD. We heard/worked only a handful of EU and JA stations. SA and the E-Coast were where the signals were most plentiful. The Northern paths were almost non-Existent hence almost no W7's, few W0's (as well as a dearth of W5's) and for us, no VE7 - VE4 (altho we did pickup VE8, VE9 & VY2). Working several dozen W6's via hollow sounding ground-wave signals was a kick. Maybe next year, the solar flux will be more in tune with 10-meters. CYA then. WQ6X
