At NX6T we ran the usual pair of K3's and Acom 2000 amplifiers into a pair of Stepp-IR & 40-M yagis @ 40' & 70' respectively. An altitude of 900'+ to begin with made things even better. We encountered the usual noise source(s) (discovered when rotating the antennas towards NNE). Luckily, for 160 & 75 meters we could null some of the noise with a rotatable loop antenna.
True to each successive WPX event, the number of "weird prefixes" continues to increase; esp. from the "European corridor" - makes me wonder what the 2014 WPX Cw event will bring us during Memorial day weekend. I've concluded that one of the factors contributing to our large number of multipliers is due largely in part to our multiplier-mascot. I caught a picture of our mascot near the end of the contest.
Overall, this is the best WPX Ssb event I've ever participated in; as well as our best effort as team NX6T. While we didn't produce a top-10 high score, overall, we experienced very few equipment/operator/operational problems; proof that we are learning from our mistakes in contest operations.
Did you work NX6T this last weekend?
