I've been a county hunter for more than 3 years, but I just cannot reach anyone in Glenn county California. I have all the other Californian counties many many times but not this one. I have done all the california QSO parties but it still eludes me. I just checked the county statistics and only 27K people live there, that's probably the problem, LOL.

Is it truely rare or am I just unlucky?

I live in CA and had never heard of Glenn County. I googled it and it's up in the northern part of the state. Your best bet is to get someone with HF Mobile or Portable setup and have them get on the air from there. There may a demand for some contacts there from other county hunters. Perhaps a club from Sacramento could go up there for Field Day.....

Find out what zip codes are in Glenn county.  You can do a search for hams in those zip codes.  Then you may be able to find email addresses on QRZ and set up a sched.

I lived in N. California until the early 90's.  Glenn and Butte county had a huge radio club, Golden Empire ARS.  They gave VEC exams and at least a hundred hams would show up each session for new licenses or upgrades.

Unless they all died off, there should be many hams in that area.

N6EEB activated Glenn County in the 2012 CQP.  I heard them but as they were S&Ping at the time and I couldn't get them. They weren't there in 2013. You might send off an email and see if they plan on activating the county again.

OK, so no one was interested in my previous post so I did the search myself.

In Glenn County there are three zip codes and 58 licensed Hams.  The ARRL has an easy way to search these.

Thanks everyone. I will be watching for mobiles in Glenn County.

And I can't wait for the next CQP. I will do single band 10 meters (hunting from Ohio).
And I'm heading off to marac.org.
