N6ZE/R ROVER SB:  Activated 2 ROVER GRIDS DM03 DM04: 
On Saturday, N6ZE/R spent several hours at the home QTH of Steve, WA6EJO, to gain experience with the three band HackRF Microwave Transceivers which he constructed as well as to visit with Roger, K6LMN/R.K6LMN's primary reason to visit WA6EJO was so that they would be able to complete a QSO on Light.

Steve WA6EJO and Roger K6LMN-R

Steve, WA6EJO, recently constructed a pair of HackRF One Portapack microwave transceivers. These units operate on 13cm, 9cm, and 5cm and are equipped with panel antennas. It takes two antennas to cover the three bands. One panel is 13 dBi at 13cm and 5cm. It takes a second panel for 3 GHz. A pair of SMA relays handle the TR switching between a Lotus LNA700M6P0G 1 dB NF preamp and a JCA JCA48-4111B1 power amp. The power amp delivers 175mW to 550mW depending on the band yielding 3.5W to 11W ERP. The rigs are made to plug into a car cigarette lighter outlet and include microphones and audio speakers.

HackRF One Portapack Transceivers for 13, 9, & 5 cm bands
The HackRF One barefoot puts out about 0.1mW to 5mW and can transmit and receive from 1 MHz to 6 GHz. FM is utilized for transmit. The HackRF One can receive SSB but not transmit in that mode. They are fussy to set up to transceive as a lot of menu selecting and button pushing is required.

On Sunday, N6ZE & WA6WDY, operated N6ZE/R from 4 locations in DM03 & DM04. N6ZE/R & Steve made QSOs on a total of 9 bands. Initial operating spot was by the Pepperdine University Beach Park in DM04. That was followed by two spots in Palos Verdes (DM03). The 4th location was a favorite spot in the Santa Monica Mts. (DM04qb). From DM03, we briefly heard a DM24 station on 2 meters. From DM04qb, we made lots of contacts in a short operating period, BUT this was the only location from which we had any contacts with DM12 stations. We worked DM12 on 2/135cm/70cm. Of note, when we were at our other locations, we never did hear anyone working South to DM12, even when we were on a Palos Verdes hilltop! Verticals were used on the lower bands, while small yagis were used with two ALINCO handhelds for 33 & 23 cm. N6ZE also worked from home in DM04 using the call K1FMJ

Worked 5 PNW grids: DN17 DO00

Near DN90 DN80 Grid Line in western NE

Another contest, more modifications to my existing rover set-up. Besides a new DIY mast mounting support, made out of an old steel shelving unit, I replaced my three heavy 12v Lead Acid Deep Cells for a commercial 100AH and a DIY 200AH Lithium Batteries. I also changed up my route starting Saturday in familiar western KS grids and for Sunday finding brand new rover locations in southwest NE. My first stop was at the DM99 98, 89 88 grid corner and band conditions were not like previous years. After roving around the corner once I headed north for the DN91 90 81 80 grid corner. It was fairly easy to find operating sites on the wide dirt roads all within 2 miles of the grid corner. Unfortunately, poor conditions that existed on Saturday followed me here. This was the first time many years of roving the Midwest that I didn't work anyone in OR or WA.

K7ATN/P QRP OR CN86:  Worked 7 PNW GRIDS: CN84 CN85 CN86 CN87 CN95 CN96 CN97
Saturday K7ATN operated QRP Portable (@10W max) on Nicolai Mountain, 3028 feet in CN86 (near Astoria).

N7DB SOLP OR-CN85:  Similar conditions as last June except there was a brief N-S opening this year on 6. Heard some scatter on 6, Not set up for digital, but looks like FT8 is becoming dominate mode.

K7YO SOLP OR-CN85:  This was a fun contest.

KB7IOG SO3B WWA-CN87:  Truly enjoyed the contacts. Thanks for all the effort.

N7QOZ SO3B WWA-CN87:  Also submitted a check-log for 432 MHz.

VE7DAY SOHP BC-CO70:  I was very surprised at such a low score in a June VHF contest, but enjoyed it.

KX7L SOLP WWA-CN87:  Only one decent Es opening, on Saturday late in the afternoon into SoCal, but still have lots of fun, and still had a pretty decent score for me, all considering. Lots of new local calls heard! Thanks for all the Q's!
