Alot of fun again.  80 meter inverted vee finally paid off in 
at least being able to keep myself busy the last few hours of the
contest!  Had an "ok" run on 15m and the rate meter hit 110+ on 40m 
(well it was for a few minutes at least!).

My apologies to the stations I couldn't pull through on 40m.  Need a
pair of ears, I know there are ops who could have pulled alot of you 
out of the noise.

Interesting Notes:  Where was TCG on 15m?  Worked NC and VA and barely
K4BAI in Georgia.  Best I can tell the skip must have been a few hundred
to long!

Also, the 16 month old refused to take a nap at 1:30 (2030z) as
planned.  Ended
up taking 2 hours off in prime time!  Oh well.

This was my best phone effort by 100 Q's which is fulfilling but doesn't
match the thrill of the 500+ Q CW effort last weekend.  The easiest way
to improve is to add 160m capability.  Step after that is aluminum!

For some perverse reason I like the "wires" category.  Must be that my
use of 
aluminum can be measured in hours of operating time for my entire ham 

Thanks everyone!

chris, n4vi
