I've always wanted to operate the CQP from CA so this was my big chance.  This
was a two week vacation with the XYL and we did a lot of hiking in the
mountains.  For the last week we rented a house at 7,000' in ALPINE County and
I put up dipoles for each band and used a TS-480SAT barefoot.  Everything
worked fine except the 10 meter antenna so I missed the nice opening on 10
meters, which hurt the score. In hindsight, I should have worked on the 10
meter dipole during the two hours on Sunday morning when the bands took a big
dive.  My overall observation from CA is that the big guns on the East Coast
were still big guns while the little pistols may have been a bit weaker than
I'm used to hearing while operating mobile in the East Coast state contests.  I
was disappointed that I only got to work one JA.  I was expecting to hear tons
of them.  Anyway, it was a fun trip and CA puts on a nice QSO party.
