First time for me in this contest and I had a great time! Unfortunately,
the wx was nice and I had to finish my house painting project - only got to
operate about 18 hours total.

Also first my contest with the 400 Hz Inrad filter in the FT-920, and it
made all the difference in the world; definitely worth the $120.

Writelog/WinRTTY performed flawlessly - Tnx W5XD for a great RTTY
contesting package!

Was it just me or did propagation stink until late on Sunday?  I didn't
work *any* Europeans until about 20:00Z on Sunday - thank goodness for all
the North American stations!
