Sorry for late posting.
I was so disappointed with the result of the contest
that I could not post it for that long.
My first murphy visited me 2 hours before the contest started.
I was in the final checking of antenna and found 80 m dipole was not
working. I climbed 100 ft tower in the dark and rain and replaced 
the feeding point.
The biggest one visited me soon after that.
IC760 quitted transmitting 23:57Z. Just before hitting CQ TEST.
I rushed Georges, FG5BG's home and borrowed his TS440.
I found his 440 did not have CW filter so I made a relay box
to transmit with 440 and receive with 760.
I finally got myself on the air around 0130Z, but by the time,
I totally lost my concentration. I often forgot to move 440' VFO
when I QSYed and called multipliers on the wrong frequencies.
If I transmitted on your frequency without answering your QRL,
I am so sorry. 
Here is my humble result. I hope I get the first place in FG.
