Opreators: KO4EW CW op 
           KD4WSR -novice station op (ko4ew's xyl and a great cook)

                           and 'EW and I dont have any little antennas :))

Beautiful weather and no major problems made this one of the most enjoyable
FDs ever.  RF getting the computers screwing with the clocks and my dvp audio
where the only minor problems incountered.  The computer clocks where off by
3 hrs at the end of the contest.  We didnt know it till 45 min before the 
test was over, KO4WT came over to look and see how I was doing and 
metioned the test was about over.  I looked at him like he was crazy, then
checked wwv and decided we had more rf problems than I thought.
