6Y8A M/S Contest-expedition WPX CW Contest 2000

#2 M/S in Contest.  Not bad for a field day operation and a few verticals on the beach!

QSL 6Y8A and K2KW/6Y5 via WA4WTG. QSL K6XX/6Y5 via home CBA.

 

 

 

Here's K6XX running a large pileup after the contest. This was Bob's first time on the DX end, and he had a great time!

 

 

High band verticals used at 6Y8A. We used 2 elements on each band, set up a few feet from the salt water (now low tide). Sorry about the bad picture.

6Y8A Station:

JRC JST-245

Alpha 76

NA software

Laptop + Keyboard

(Backup station: IC706 and Finn Fett amp, but it was never used during the contest. All equipment and antennas were packed in the allowed 2 check-in suitcases plus 2 (heavy) carry-on's per person)

 

 

 

80m Create vertical that is stored at the villa. This was set up Friday morning in case we decided to go to 80m for a few QSOs... we never used the antenna in the contest. The antenna was set up back from the ocean at an easy mounting location, but would normally be located closer to the water. That said, it was still less than a 1/4 wave from the ocean.
