Because of Fallbrook's excellent DX location (900' above sea level), it made sense to run a Multi-2 from the former W6HCD location (now known as Nashville).
We ran two operating positions and two antenna towers.
We had multiple operators, including: NN6X + N6EEG, K4RB, N6KI, myself and a newbie operator KE6A, who made his contest debut Friday night on 80-meters from Station #2 while I ran pileups on 20-m & 40-m.

putting us in last place of the highest-scoring Multi-2 high power operations.
Even with Mr. Bill on our side, Murphy showed up in many different ways. The ACOM 2000 developed a bad transmit relay so we swapped it out for a replacement ACOM 2000. Using the Centurion amplifier for station 2 required rewiring the amp for 110 instead of 220. The 12-v power supply for the K3 took a dive requiring we swap in a replacement. The low antenna tower developed a stuck rotor, requiring that we bang the tower bottom to free it. And of course operating 160 for our whopping 9 QSO's RFI'd the internet router, requiring a reset after each stint of time spent on 160. At times it seemed that the TS-950 front end had been fried (no signals on 10m & 20m). We finally concluded that the main problem was the K-Index and not the receiver; altho excessively tight Cw filters may have contributed to the quiet signals.
Dennis N6KI made another YouTube video of our operation.
If you look closely you can still see my 4-element Inverted Vee Slinky antenna hanging from the tree. (It has since been removed for use in Field Day with W6SW on Mt. Abel.)
