What a blast!  It was great not to have a 600 mile skip zone and
quiet bands to boot.  My first time over 300 qsos.  The only mult
I heard but didn't work was VO1XX on 40 meters (N6TV beat me out
- grrrrrr).  I was well impressed with my new IC-746 (40/20
meters), used the TS-830S on 80.  I just finished up the two
radio switching, but did not do much real two radio operation
since I use the same antenna (PRO-67A) for 20 and 40.  
I think the holiday weekend was a positive factor.  Might it make
sense to hold this contest on the Saturday night before Labor
Day, even in those years when that would put in on August 30 or
