Worked the full 24 hours - very hard.  Concentrated on keeping the rate 
up.  The WRTC group defintely helped - very good activity.  Opening to 
EU on 20 was not very good.  Nothing like last year.  Signals were weak 
at first and they couldn't hear me - did a lot of P/S - was able 
to run EU much later.  Kudo's for the WRTC gang - they did a splendid 
job of increasing the activity on the bands, expecially when the band 
conditions were down from last year.  I was able to make 138 contacts 
plus another 4 from AH3C and AH3D.  I was surprised to see 10 and 15 
open up.  Actually closed out the contest working on 10 meters. All and 
all - I had a blast as usual.  Until the next - 73's.
