Awesome contest from start to finish. First hour I have 119 QSO with 42
mults.  I could have done better if I had thought of checking the 80m
antennas when 
I first got to the ranch. All 80m antennas were set for SSB. For some reason
I never even thought of 80m until it was time to go to 80m on Sat night. At
1:00am in the morning I went to see if I could change the 80m ant. to CW
it was so dark I couldn't see and my hand light wasn't strong enough for 
me to get the wires over the trees. I figured maybe in the morning I could 
do it, WRONG the bands opened early and I didn't have time to do it. However 
my rates stayed up pretty well staying on 40m most of the time..  I only had 
90 QSO on 80m.

I love rate contests with out BAND MULTS. 

  See you guys in WPX test..
