My score was down a little from last year (abt. 500K).  We ended up with about
24" of snow over the weekend and the resultant noise on the low bands hurt the
Q/mult totals here.  Also, I could just feel 10 Meters slipping down the Sun
Spot slope.  I had a lot of fun and still managed to beat my brother, Bill W4RM,
who put in a lot less time but has much bigger/higher antennas.  I'll probably
operate this one next year with him from his house, which is only 6 miles from
mine.  Thanks for the Qs and 73, Jack W4NF
