SOAPBOX: This is another AD-Hoc setup from Alameda California. I intended to run an amplified Flex 1500 with my trusty ICOM 7000 as a backup radio. Unfortunately, the receiver side of the 1500 developed a strange whistle making it unreliable for use in this weekend's radiosport. SOAPBOX: Radio was a barefoot ICOM 7000 into an HF2-V Vertical arrayed with radials. This year the number of HQ stations seemed way more plentiful than in the 2012 event. Noticeably missing was Hawaii (I worked only one station) as well as VE4, VE5 & VE6. Additionally, VK seemed absent as well as BG (China) except for an HQ station there. In fact for MANY countries all I worked was their HQ station. There were surprisingly few JA stations this year, continuing my beef that Asian stations seem to be noticeably absent from this year's radiosport events. Brazil (PP5), Uruguay (CX3) and Columbia (HK3) were the only South American countries I could work. Surprisingly, Europe was unhearable from this Alameda location, although I did hear EF5 and EA3.
