One of my TS-850s was on the fritz, so I used an IC-756 Pro II.  FB rig.  

Ten was funny.  I'd hear a loud W8, work him, then try to run.  Nothing doing. 
Later, I'd hear a loud W4.  Oh boy, here it comes!  Guess again.  

15 seemed pretty good, but I wondered if I might have tried too hard there. 

20 peaked in the late afternoon/early evening, just as N6TR predicted.

The general noise level here was a bit high, but the storms that were forecast
never materialized.

I felt pretty much "in the zone" until the last 90 minutes or so.  I took a
break and did an Alt-U to exit TR.  I then ran POST to look at my rate. When I
launched TR again it had forgotten all the exchange info it had previously
learned.  What a pain!  Actually having to copy the exchange?!  :-)  I guess it
was the Alt-U that did it.  

Thanks for all the moves.
