I think we did okay.  10M was really disappointing.  We heard 2 people on 10M,
but couldn?t work them.  We moved people a lot more than in previous contests,
and I think that made all of the difference. The low bands were the money for
us.  I was really happy to see so much activity on 40 & 80. 

About 3 hours into the contest, we had a power supply start smoking.  We
couldn?t identify the smell at first, but I can tell you I was pretty freaked
out when my Icom 756 ProII turned off.  We diagnosed the problem and got
reconfigured and back on the air within about 5 minutes.   Arcing in the power
supply appeared to be caused by a loose screw from the PCB to the main DC

Although our score was lower than last year, I think we performed better.  It
looks like most people had troubles with 10M.  I?m pleased with the outcome.  It
was KD5SQF's first time out to the ranch.  I think he picked a good contest to
come out for.
