My goal was to check out several new places near home and, for my first time, operate my new(ish) IC-7300 and IC-9700 together. To streamline setup, I brought my smallest 6m and 2m antennas and didn't camp overnight. I've worked 6m-only for the last couple of years, so it was a nice chance to run a multi-band station again. Also, it's my first introduction to SO2R (single operator, 2 radios).

Saturday I scouted near home and activated three grids north of Seattle: CN87, CN88, and CN98. Sunday I scouted farther away, starting from Chuckanut Drive, the most distant, and working my way toward home. Once I found a good spot on Little Mtn near Mt Vernon, I stopped and operated the rest of the day.

I quickly learned the value of stereo separation. If two rigs are stacked together on the desk, there's no clue which radio is making sound. So, I separated them L-R which also separated the microphones. Nice.

My biggest problem was failing to get WSJT to communicate with either of my two Icom rigs. More writeup on my ham radio travel blog. Barry K7BWH

Once again it was nice to get out and do some operating from the field although it was a pretty limited rove. As usual the contest caught me unprepared so I had a fairly limited operation Saturday from Poulsbo.

Sunday I headed out to Ft Flagler on Marrowstone Island. There's a pretty good spot here that has a 190 degree unobstructive view from north thru east to the south. As some of you noted I too copied quite a few SoCal stations from the SF area all the way to the Mexican border, but worked only a couple of them. Got a chance to try out my new 220 xvtr and even passed out a few 1.2ghz contacts. It's been awhile since I've been on those bands. Enjoyed talking to everyone and look forward to the next VHF contest. Thanks to all!

This is my basic 10ghz setup by which I made my three 10 GHz qsos from the roof of my house. The 10GHz station is: a Kuhne G3 10GHz xvtr with 17db horn, IF radio: FT817nd, battery: 40Ah 12v LiPO, 2m liaison with the Kenwood TH7.

Saturday afternoon the weather was low 40s, sunny, and no wind. We had a fair amount of smog.

This was a fun contest

KX7L SOLP CN87
Too many things going on this weekend, but I did manage to get some time in for the contest. I only heard a few brief "flashlight openings" into the Bay Area, but couldn't manage any QSO's that way. Still great fun working the locals. Always a treat to work the W7MEM "Super Station" over the mountains. Thanks for all the Q's!

My first ever VHF contest participation. I enjoyed it!

N6ZE/R Rover DM04
I made use of the new ROVER rule permitting a minimum of 1 grid activated. I operated from 4 locations within DM04 . I utilized PHONE only; I heard very few FT-8 (data) stations in the few times I monitored FT frequencies. Most QSOs made with FT857 (6m/2m/70cm), Kenwood mobile (125cm), handhelds for 33cm and 23cm, WA6EJO H/B for 2.3 and 5.7GHz. Antenna = whips only for 6m - 23cm. Had 22 QSOs with DM12, including 2m and 125cm handhelds+whip antennae .

I operated primarily from DM04qb in Santa Monica Mts, and DM04ne Tarantula Hill in Thousand Oaks, CA. Nice to see lots of local activity for this contest. Weather nice! No Snow! NWS forecast 40 mph winds died down early on Saturday morning and light showers noted a couple of times.
