This is another last minute portable setup from the N6GEO QTH. Both N6GEO & WQ6X had other commitments this weekend impacting the number of operator hours, altho combined we managed about 24 hours of total OP time. We did a final test-drive to a TH3-jr Yagi that we will use during CQP 2013. For RTTY transmission we used a FLEX-1500 radio into an ALS-500m amplifier yielding us 70 - 100 watts output (depending on the band). This weekend was one of BLUE Screens when running the PowerSDR software and the smoking-out of the bandswitch on the MFJ tuner when I attempted to tune up on 160 meters. While the low solar flux SUCKED, we were pleased to encounter openings to Europe on BOTH 15 & 10 meters. At this location the two story house largely blocks our access to Asia and Oceania, so not surprising is that we worked no VK's or ZL's and less than a handful of JA's - I guess Asians don't do RTTY. While we wished we could do more this year we were both appreciative of the OP time we did get. Look for us a Multi-2 next year.
