Hello all,
Once again the SARC site provided a great location to operate in a VHF contest.  My activities started on Saturday morning at 1100PDT and ended on Sunday morning at 1030PDT.
I spent Saturday night at the clubhouse in my RV.
I intended to contest on the 144MHz and 1296MHz bands, but quickly the situation changed.  Early in the contest I discovered a broken N connector on the 1296 coax running up the tower. So I abandoned the band after only making one 1296 contact with W9EC. The rest of the contest was going to have to rely on running only 144MHz.
Late Saturday night I had another equipment casualty, my 144MHz preamp antenna relay flashed over under the strain of 1500W. Unfortunately, the flash over destroyed the preamp along with the relay.  The rest of the contest was completed using my 144Mhz amplifier driver preamp. Hopefully I will have the preamp repaired for the JOTA weekend.
The results were typical of the September contest. I gathered 67 QSOs on 144MHz, of which 7 were via moon bounce and W9EC on 1296MHz. I worked a total of 21 grid squares for a preliminary score of 1449 points.
