Fun, fun fun. I roved around the CN86/CN87/CN96/CN97 grid intersection in the NW foothills of Mt. Rainier. Started in CN96 then CN86 --> CN87 --> CN97, and then reversed course back to CN96. Of course there were a couple of quick returns to a nearby grid to work new stations. Pretty good turn out in the Pacific Northwest. Conditions were highly variable, with some deep QSB cycles down toward Portland, OR (CN85). Worked a total of 18 unique stations, and 12 of them were worked from all 4 grids. The 20 grids worked were CN85, CN86, CN87, CN88, CN89, each worked from all four of my grids. Some grids were lit-up by a single station: VE7AFZ was the only CN89 station heard, WA7ZWG was the only CN88 station heard, and N7KSI was the only CN86 station heard. I really appreciate working them all four times. CN85 was well represented by KE7MSU, K7SMA, and K7YDL. Almost all QSOs were on 432 MHz SSB (with a few CW QSOs). The exceptions were N7QOZ and N7EHP who were only on 446 MHz FM, and they worked me in every grid. Equipment: FT-857d with a RF Concepts 100 W brick for SSB/CW, and a TYT-9800 at 40 W for FM. Antennas for in-motion QSOs at 8': a pair of 6 ele WA5VJB "Cheap Yagis", one vertical (FM) and one horizontal (SSB/CW). While stationary, a telescoping mast was raised to 25' with an 11 ele LFA (horizontal for SSB/CW) and 10 ele "Cheap Yagi" vertically polarized (FM) was used.
