Saturday morning had a thick marine layer, and made the drive up Angeles Crest Hwy a pain. Can't believe there were 50+ bicyclists out there in the fog and drizzle. Arrived about 15 minutes before the contest at my DM14 turnout. Hurried to setup before the start, but managed to get going. No 6 meter opening. Made 50 local Qs, and moved down the road to DM04. Needed to be further west. Not a very good location. Still no opening, but made 30 local Qs. Glad to work an ATNO W6FM in CM95. Great to work N6MI in DM15 on 6 and 2. Was a 2 hour slog in traffic to go to Signal Hill DM03. Nice W0 and W5 opening on 6. Made almost 100 Qs there and called it a night. Didn't realize it was raining in Newport Beach on Signal Peak. Chatted with Peter NI6E and Scott AF6RT until the rain stopped. Had a monster opening to the Seattle area and to the Rocky Mountain states. I asked Bruce KG6IYN where a good roving spot, and he suggested the parking area for the Torrey Pines Gliderport. It was another 2 hour drive, though. Excellent views back to L.A. area. Fantastic location - thank you Bruce. I still need to minimize the amount of driving between grids. I need to increase the usage of the 2, 220, and 440 yagis that I have, rather than single element. Murphy struck in the form of bad PTT microswitch on IC 7000 mic, RFI in my rig interface, and in intermittent CW connection on back of my rig. Thanks to all the locals who made a special effort to get on the air. 73, Tim N6GP/R
