This is another WQ6X portable operation from the QTH of N6GEO in Brentwood,Ca. and my 1st attempt at SARTG. I was running the Flex-1500 into an Ameritron ALS-500m (producing 95 watts) for SARTG while at the same time running the NAQP SSB contest using an ICOM-7000. Antenna was a ground mounted Hustler 6-BTV vertical loaded with radials which even tuned on 160 for one QSO in the NAQP. The Solar Flux jumped mid contest from 123 to 149 and then back to 129. While the Solar noise on 40-M was HORRIBLE on the 2nd evening, it didn't matter because there were NO SARTG signals heard on 80-m & 40-m. How come I was the only one calling CQ SARTG on 80/40? 10-meters was dead all day and 15-meters didn't really open until about 22:00z. Overall I enjoyed the contest and hope that next year people will activate 80 & 40 as well.
