Original SS Plan had us operating K6LRG remote. The K6LRG station was QRT stricken with a power problem at the same time as we were doing a radio transition event(installing flex) a few days prior to the cw SS. Andreas suggested firing up his home station as an alternate. We did so, and did quite well(the station played very well), so since stuff is still kind of torn up on the hill, we decided to do an unscheduled semi-serious SSB effort from his house. N6WM started out the contest and worked the first 5 hours racking up the score, but just as things were starting to kick up on 40 a local qrn source popped up slowing down the charge a bit. sigh.. life in the hood. N6NU and K6WX took shifts Saturday evening battling 40m qrn and a discovery that the 80m antenna does not play well in SSB when hopping around 75m. the low number on 40 and particularly 80 tell the story here. rough riding. Its a shame when noise pops up like this, N6NU SteppIR is a lethal radiator. A new 80 solution is in works. Sunday AM we were testing our flex remote contesting configuration that will eventually drive K6LRG op position 3. N6WM fired up remote from his Fremont QTH operating several hours in the AM. other than a bit of Internet badness for about 10 minutes it worked very well. Andreas then took over for much of the late morning and early afternoon. K6WX then took over again, along with another 1 hour run by N6WM. Missed the Caribbean mults.. and honestly did not look very hard. Just about everything else came to us. Overall it was a bit of a tough slog but with a team of 3 we were able to produce a result in the range needed for the task at hand. .
