This was another portable operation from Concord, Ca. (EB ARRL Section). I was quite disappointed in the lack of hearable Japanese stations. So we non-JA stations had to call CQ to attract JA participation. The participation seemed lacking this year, altho I did enjoy the contest overall. The station consisted of an ICOM 7000 and Yaesu FT-900 - used alternately in to an HF2-V Vertical with a dozen radials favoring the North West. Some local RFI on 80/40 could not be mediated by the FT-900's crappy noise blanker - ICOM 7000 digital NB to the rescue. The plummeting solar flux and K=3 noise levels didn't help. I got to test-drive to a new version of the WQ6X prefecture Tracking software, which I may release for general use later this year. It was nice to work JE1CKA himself at 04:44z. CY'all Next year and in the JIDX SSB contest in November. Ron WQ6X
