Hello contesters !

   Well, my third WPX CW is over, and a new record for me is born. This was 
my last possible shot at the Rookie class. The conditions seemed to be
average, but especially 40 meters was good. With all the K's, W's and DX i
heard there saturday morning (I want a beeamm!!!) it was nice to get some
6-pointers. 20 meters was packed as always, but sometimes i was able to find a
hole to CQ in.

   My operating time was about 28 hours, most of it on saturday. Sunday morning
when i awoke at 5.30am local time, i felt my nose wasn't very open anymore. 
On monday morning i woke up with a terrible headache and temperature. So no
school for me in two days. Better luck next time, hi!!

   Thanks to everyone for the QSOs, CU agn !
