This was the 3rd collaborative expedition from Modoc county by WQ6X & N6GEO, running and ICOM 7000 & Yaesu FT-897 into a multiplexed TH3-jr 8mh, along with a pair of phased cobra dipoles (for 40-meters), an HF2-V Vertical (for 80-meters) and a Buddipole (for 10-meters), all powered by a Honda generator. We both ran Cw & SSB, making contacts on all bands from 160 to 10 meters. While we listened for 6-meter openings nothing came our way so N6GEO replaced the 3-el 6-meter beam with the Buddipole so we could take advantage of the surprising 10-meter opening on Sunday. The TH3 made possible super 15-meter openings to Europe on both days and an incredible opening to Europe Sunday morning on 10-meters. We successfully ran the 8JK Cobra dipoles as phased inverted V's for 40 meters. For 80-meters, the ground mounted HF2-V was outstanding, producing an opening to the east coast at the unheard of time of 02:45z. Careful tuning of the HF2-V with an old Dentron jr. tuner allowed WQ6X to make a single contact on 160; enough to say that we were there. Missing in this year's CQP were stations from Africa and Oceania. We also missed a sweep by 2 sections; QC (VE2) and Vermont (VT), which we are told produced 5 stations. Our proposed QSO count of 1,129 easily surpassed our 807 QSO record from previous Modoc expeditions. You can see our CQP page at: http://WQ6X.Info/CQP/CQP2013
