Totals     206         82    =  16,892 points

Had very thunderstormy weather this year.  The half
length G5RV doesn't do all that well on 3.5, but I
was surprised to work 21 on that band.  Was able to 
sustain only one short run on 20 Meters and two on 
40 Meters. The balance was S&P.  Thanks to all who 
struggled to copy my feeble signal.

OK, I wanted to try something different.  So... I decided to try my hand at
doing two radios, with two callsigns, full time.  I used W4NT and N4RJ (both
licensed to the N4RJ QTH).  I did not pass any station to the other
callsign, tailend a mult that the other call found, ect...  Basically a one
radio contest for each callsign.  97% CQing by both.


I must be nuts.  This was 10 times harder than I thought it would be.  After
8 hours of trying to copy stations simultaneously, it wasn't going to take
much to break me.  I had a ringing headache and was totally fatigued.  So...
at 10:30pm when I went to 80 for the first time as N4RJ and found the 80m
antenna position produced no signals, I decided to call it quits.  

Both stations made about 550 QSO's in 7 hours.

Lessons learned:

-I'm crazy.
-S&Ping on a 2nd radio is a piece of cake.
-Don't expect much from a station that gets operated 4 times a year.

Thanks to those of you that had to hear me send ? when you were 20db over 9.
Now you know why.
