Wow, 80M on the first night was the best I've ever seen it from this QTH.  I
nearly doubled my 'normal' multiplier and tripled my QSO total on 80M.  40M was
nearly a complete bust on the first night, and essentially died right at sunset
on Saturday.  The auroral absorption zone dipped very low in latitude, causing
some major attenuation for this QTH.  I saw lots of East Coast spots continue
on 40M, but nothing heard here.  Loudest 40M signal the first two nights were
about S5.  But before sunset, signals were quite good, and prop was fine Sunday
well past darkness...the auroral zone stayed in higher latitudes.

As usual, I almost entirely chase packet spots and S&P.  I think I CQ'd for one
hour on 20M and a half hour on 40M.  Turns out it was my best showing for the
last 5 years, and my 3rd best score, although my best scores were done in a
fraction of this time, due to much better 10/15 back then.

Was excited to hear B1Z on 40M, but he couldn't hear me.  Worked VK on 80M for
the first time in 8 years and the first ZL ever on 80M from this QTH.  Worked a
few new band-countries on 40 and 80.
