First time in several years that I made a serious effort in the Sept VHF Contest. The lack of 6M Es, the complete lack of any active stations within 500+ Miles to the N, NE. E, and SE, coupled with most of the active stations are on the opposite side of the entire Sierra NV mountain chain that runs from Southern California well north into OR and merges into other ranges that effectively block the entire West coast. It was a tough road to hoe from the valley floor here in Silver Springs NV. Add to that the Power Line noise from a faulty transformer in my own front yard and its a wonder I work anything. Still its a good feeling to be able to meet my goal of 1K in this event. Thanks to all who managed to pull me out of the noise! One the positive side there were lots of long burning rocks most of Saturday and Sunday Morning. Made use of FT8 and MSK144 Digital Modes to make most of my 6M contacts. All with 100W from an old IC-746 into 6ele 6M Yagi at 28ft & a 11ele 2M yagi at 23ft. To the folks in Hurricane Irma's path your in our thoughts. Hope you remain warm and dry. See you in the January 2018 event!
