Comments:  Activity seemed lighter than past NAQP.  Only one VE worked
(VE5MX) worked about 4 XEs and WP2Z and KP4Y.  Missed alot of regular
states.   Conditions were obviously pretty bad and that may have contributed
to people quiting early.

Missed 2 1/2 hours due to having to work, then lost another hour having to
do cut the grass etc.  By a bit after midnight the long week at work really
caught up with me and I decided to crash.

Rig: FT-840 100W into a G5RV .... got my tribander a few days ago but these
9-10 hours work days ending after 8PM makes it hard to get it installed.
Plan to have it up for the SSB weekend.  Hope 10 and 15 are better though I
find I do decent on 40 and 80M with my low wire.   Someday I will figure out
something that will radiate a sig on 160m (though that may have to wait
until I move ...)
