I started off by discovering, just 15 minutes before the contest started, the 
cable I use between the computer soundcard and the radio would not work on my 
1000MP-MkV.  The cable had worked for two years on my 1000MP.  I just assumed 
it would work ok on the new model.  Wrong!  So, I worked the whole contest with 
my own voice.  I had forgotten what it was like without a DVP or soundcard.  

The highlight of the contest was hearing a Caribbean station that was 
frustrated with the depth of the pileup he created, say;  ?I can?t understand 
any of you when you all call at the same time.?  ?Now, call me one at a time.?
Yeah right, like any station was going to wait to be the second station that
