This was another WQ6X + N6GEO multi-OP from N6GEO's QTH in Brentwood Ca. running a FLEX-1000 SDR radio thru a cascade of 4 amplifiers to deliver 140-w into a TH3-j3 7mh. Friday N1MM and the FLEX-1000 had compatibility problems so only 2-dozen contacts were made. From time-to-time one of the intermediate amps would become intermittent requiring the usual tap with a screwdriver. Otherwise, the station setup functioned quite well. Overall, we managed a near-even split between SSB (359) and CW (361) QSOs. The band opened quite early both mornings meaning that WQ6X has to be rousted out of bed before 7am - oh the sacrifices we make for contest events. The A/K Indexes were amazing low making QRM our only real problem. Because the N6GEO QTH is in a CC&R restricted neighborhood, by 00:30z, the TH3 and it's military mast were quietly gone. Antenna? Whut antenna? This was truly a fun event. Who knows what the sunspot cycle will be like in 2014, so it was good to operate this contest while we can. Look for us in 2014 with another surprise operation.
