This was my 3rd year for the CQP and my 2nd as a County Expedition to 
Kern  County. I had intended on this being a multi-single effort but 
plans changed so I operated single un-assisted and as such reduced my 
operating time from what was planned. I put up 7 self built antennas, 
several that were experimental in nature. In the end I could have done 
just fine with 4. The wind picked up as the antennas were going up 
Friday morning but we still managed to put up all antennas without 
getting hurt. The work horses: 20M folded dipole with apex at 35', 80M 
vertical, 40M vertical, 160M inverted-L. The experimental 40M NVIS 
didn't get me to the West side of the mountain, the 1/4 mile beverage 
although effective wasn't needed as 160M was extremely quiet at this 
QTH, the 15M folded dipole was not worth the trouble as I didn't work 
(or even copy) a single station above 20M.    I was just going to fool 
around on CW and concentrate on SSB. Between 20M SSB being way 
overcrowded with all of us in CA who couldn't hear each other and 40M 
with above average foreign broadcast, CW turned out to be the hot 
ticket. Never mind that I was calling CQ at 14 - 16 WPM I still 
managed twice as many CW  contacts as SSB. Note to self - continue to 
work on CW speed with Morse Runner especially with pileups. Thanks go 
to all those who patiently repeated call signs and reports as I only 
had to turn away 3 that I couldn't pull out. Special bonus was working 
a couple JA's on 40M Sunday morning and working a couple VE's Saturday 
night on 160M.  Multipliers missing: NT, RI, NM, ID, NV, UT mostly 
close ones, same number missing as last year. Surprise - I only worked 
43 more stations as last year and with the same number of mults my 
score was over 20,000 point higher. Those extra CW point do add up.
