     160CW         64         131        28     claimed score:    3,668

     Hours of Operation: 3

Comments:  The sorry score says it all!  100 W and a wire doesn't seem
to work.  Calling the loud guys and having them keep on CQ'ing is not a
good sign.  But yet, can work the weaker guys on the first call!  Also,
one thought ... perhaps wait a couple milliseconds before hitting "F1"
again ... some folks started calling CQ before I was even able to send
the first "dit" of my call!  After 3 hours of S&P'ing (searching and
preying someone will hear me), I had enough.

73, Ron
