This was another WQ6X remote operation from NX6T ("NashVille") in Fallbrook. Family obligations kept me off the air during 15:00z thru 06:00z so I made the 7.5 hours of actual OP time work for me. Equipment-wise I ran a barefoot Elecraft K3 into a 3-el Stepp-IR, 2-elements on 40 meters and a droopy inverted Vee for the 3 QSOs on 80 meters. As with other recent remote contests, using an old Autek QF-1A audio filter to process the laptop audio produced far better results that the DSP filtering built into the K3. My biggest CW contest BEEF is with the BONEHEADS who work me and then move up barely 200hz to call CQ, when there is PLENTY of open frequency space 1 or 2 khz away. While I missed the 40 meter opening to Europe and heard no AF stations (and only 1 SA station), this IOTA contest was a lot of fun. Because of the format of the island designators,the IOTA contest makes for an interesting challenge. You can read my write up about this GiG in an upcoming WQ6X Contest BLOG entry:
