I had a great time and the conditions were excellent.  I also saw the slow 
opening of the high bands on Sunday morning that some others also noted but 
overall I'll take conditions like this anytime.  The score may go up a little 
as my country database did not recognize XP1AB as OX but rather as ON.  So add 
3 more countries to the totals above.  As a SOAB (Assisted) guy you would think 
that I spent time making sure my packet connection was rock solid.  Well, it 
wasn't.  I think I had to re-log on about every hour when the traffic was 
heavy.  I think I'll become my own node.  The highlight of the contest has to 
have been the great rates on 10 Meters on Saturday.  Starting at 1100Z I had 
rates of 114, 137, 109, 111, 92 and 85.  I had higher rates last year but not 
for that long.  Thanks to the DX for all the Qs and I'll CU all in SS CW next 
week.  73, Jack W4NF
