Thanks again to my brother Bill (W4RM) for the use of his fine station and to my
sis-in-law Lori and my nephew Brian for their hospitality.

This year I decided to concentarte on my runs during the first 12 hours and
then hit the SO2R real hard on Sunday.  The result was that I was 50 Qs behind
last years total when I stopped after 11.5 hours to go to sleep.  When I got
back on in the morning I quickly got another 50 Qs behind and then really had
to hit the second radio hard the rest of the day to catch up.  At mt 1 hour
dinner break at 2200Z I had 1290 Qs.  I at least wanted to hit 1500 at the end
so I needed to average 50/hour for the last 4 hours once I got back on.  So I
started on 40 and got a 44 hour,  Then I went to 80 and I couldn't get anything
going so I went back to 40 and went down close to 7150.  For the next 2 hours I
had 69 and 64 hours on 40.  Not bad for the end of the contest and I added a
few more with the second radio.  So for the last hour all I needed was 24 to
hit 1500.  That was fairly easy but I had to do a lot of S&P to finish up. So
as a result I beat last years score by 3 Qs.  Thanks for the Qs and 73, Jack
