Alpine County Expedition 2nd year doing this... seeing as how we only got roughly 70-80 QSOs last year, this year went much better. Huge bonus... There was no wind on our location this year! Or at least very little... nothing like the 60mph gusts last year. It did get down to the low 20s at night though. Huge thanks to W1SRD for loaning us the amp. We were able to actually hold a running frequency, and chat with CA stations via backscatter. Took roughly 4 hours to get the amp tuned properly, and figure out how to keep the antenna from rotating, and work the kinks out of the station, but once we did, we had an immediate pileup for about 2 hours on 20m, and then a nice pileup at the start of 40m in the evening. We had another station roughly 1 mile from us that was only running 100w off a hex beam, so we had to stay 30khz away from each other. Which limited our S&P efforts. We never saw ND, DE, or MR... even though our signal was ALL OVER the states surrounding those ones. Even got some Europe and Eastern Europe on Sunday. Not bad for a 600w expedition. Overall, we had a great time, and are looking for ways to improve for next year! I will be putting together some pictures and a write up of the shenanigans for the MLDXCC and NCCC newsletters.
