QRP in the Salmon Run is always a challenge. Most antennas are pointed east from WA, and the skip into CA isn't great. Add that to the poor propagation conditions, and seemingly lower turnout, it made this year's SR a real challenge. I would like to thank the great ears of K7TQ who was able to pull me out on many of his mobile locations. Thank you for your planning and execution. And for N7NM and W7DX, great ears and superior operation. Adding to my challenge this year, I operated unassisted (own choice), to keep me engaged and searching, took a 4 hour break to run the NA RTTY Sprint, and missed most of Sunday due to poor planning. I seemed to have missed any digital contact opportunity and some mobile contacts, so next year I'll take it easy and go unlimited and use all the tools in the shed to maximize the efforts of the mobile guys in WA. Thanks again for fun and challenging weekend.
