This was my first attempt at SOAB HP in this contest.  It is really different 
than most of the winter/fall contests as far as propagation is concerned!  We 
had heavy rains and thunder storms from the start until early Sunday morning.  
QRN on 80 and 40 meters was terrible.  Had to resort to using beverages on 40M 
due to rain static on the high 40M yagi and generally high QRN from the storms. 
 Made only the few 80M contacts on Saturday evening and the majority of 40M 
QSO's late Saturday/early Sunday due to the noise.

This is really a fun contest and I now appreciate the usefullness of an 
unusual/rare prefix.  Perhaps next year I'll try to borrow another call to 
attract more attention.  No rig problems and the antennas seemed to work as 
usual.  Just the op getting a bit slower and less capable.  Congrats to those 
with the huge scores.  I'll try to do better next year.
