Club: Southern California Contest Club
This was another thrown-together effort from the shack behind my house and
was all analog, as usual. The short Yagis for the higher bands were on
poles six to eight feet up. My score was about half of last year's, all due
to lower 6-meter contact and grid counts. That's life west of the Rockies,
it seems, but I wonder how many contacts were not made on SSB and CW because
people were sitting on FT8 all weekend.
The little 1.2 GHz radio failed mid-contest, so I hooked a 1.2 handheld to
the antenna and completed all but two of the attempted contacts on that
It was good to hear some relatively new (KM6) calls getting on for the
contest as well as some long-time / big-time HF contesters.
Thanks for contacts and the attempts.
