Simply, this was a failed county expedition. Not much preparation, for a 7 hours
drive distant location, opened the door for Murphy's visits.

- Faulty generator blew the power supply, so had to use the spare one, and work
with only 50-60 watts. Not many heard my signal on phone, but CW gave some

- Heavy rain stopped operation few hours after the contest start, although it
was not predicted on WX channel. My mistake!

- After moving some equipment to the car in the evening, I ran for 2 hours on
160/80/40, but generator decided to quit.

My appologies to those who did not catch Lassen county. During off times I took
notes of things not to repeat next time, one of them to stay away from iron-rich
volcanic mountain tops. (Beautiful view, though).

73, Denny KX7M
