My usual station - FT1000MP, TrLog, 80 Dipole up 70, 40 dipole up 50, 20 dipole
up 50 and I used the 40 on 15 and the 80 on 10.  Yeah, it sucks!

I really screwed this one up, figuring 160 and 10 would be no good 
(thunderstorms and propagation, respectively).  Well, I heard LOTS
of sigs on 10, and the S/N on 160 was WONDERFUL. I even devoted a
1/2 hour break to trying hook up an old, low 160 dipole to some
new coax.  Might have worked, too, if I hadn't forgotten that 
the lawn tractor ate one end early this year!  Not even the old
TS830S (which kinda loaded up whatever that wire looked like) could
be heard!  The antenna analyzer shows a sorta-match at around 2.3MHz!
Wish we had a band there...

Activity seemed to be down.  80/40 short, with left coast the longest
worked on each (no pacific).  Thanks to VP5Y for a 5-band set of mults.

One of these days I really need to get some antennas!  73, All.
