KX7L SOLP OR-CN85: Once in a while, the stars line up and we get a good opening during a contest here in the PNW. We had a good long opening down to AZ on Sat, then during the last few hours of the contest it was just non-stop multi-hop! I even managed a few CW QSOs on 6 My best score in the June contest since 2016. Thanks for all the QSOs.
N6ZE/7 SO3B WWA-CN88: N6ZE/7 operated outdoors for the entire contest in the great PNW from his deck overlooking the Puget Sound and the Cascade Mountains. There were no rain showers until the last hour of the contest. There was a good bit of VE7 activity from CN88 and CN89, but did not even hear Portland, OR (CN85) until the last 15 minutes of the event.It was nice to work W7MEM (DN17) located on the East side of the Cascades.
N6ZE elected to be a Low Power Analogue Entry, which turned out to be quite favorable. There was an extremely high noise level part of the time, but managed a double-hop E-skip QSO with N4SVC (EM80) in Florida.
Rig: FT-991, 3-element 6-meter "Hilltopper Yagi", 7-element Cushcraft 2 meter yagi, and an 11-element M2 70-cm yagi.
Getting to operate from the home PNWVHFS territory was great.
KL7UW/R Rover BP51: Operated from hilltop 400-foot ASL that is a commercial comm site.
Three antennas mounted in bed of my pickup: 7-elem 144, 13-elem 432, and 25-elem 1296. Ran all with my IC-9700 on FM. BP40HR to KL7H is a 75-mile path, so was happy to make it on 1294.50 FM with 8w and 25-elem loop-yagi. KL7H also used IC-9700 with a 45-elem loop-yagi.
AF7GL - WWAUnfortunately I messed up this contest. I had plans but had to change them due to the weather and my physical condition.
I ended up driving up to Cleman Mountain on Sunday and only managed to make
one QSO on 432. I started on 1296 with no luck.
Then tried 432 because these antennas were the easiest to assemble.
Weather was okay (overcast) on arrival, but soon started to be chilly.
Then rain started and I had no will to set up other bands in the rain,
like 144, where probably I would have had more luck and then could have
asked stations over to more bands.
Cleman Mountain [CN96nt] is east of Nile next to road WA-410. It has a radio site on top. Upper section is a bit rough to drive up, summit is open. I had no RF interference or noise on 432 on my IC-705.
