I will be working CW during this year’s Washington State QSO party the ‘Salmon Run,’ from Asotin County with the South Hill Contest Club, N7PP. Dude, I’m totally stoked. Asotin County is in the remote South East corner of Washington. From just above where we are operating, you can see into Idaho and Oregon. Check out this photo of the stunning view from Puffer Butte:
The Salmon Run is sponsored by the Western Washington DX Club. My Elmer, Rex, K7QQ, frequently takes top score in Washington and earned the top score in Washington in 2006 running as a single operator, high-power, all-mode. Rex also holds the points record for single-op, high-power. I only scored a tiny percentage of his points in 2006 and earned a certificate for low-power, CW in Kitsap County. As long as Rex is tearing it up in Kitsap County, I will have to make sure I stay out of his class.
