Now, that was fun.  I only got on for a little more than 6 hours, but sure kept
me busy.  It was just too nice of a day to stay inside and play radio.  

It was good to see 10 open for a while today.  I was listening before the
contest and there were quite a few stations on.

Conditions seemed pretty good here.  Even managed to sneak in a couple of DX
contacts.  Worked OH8JT, and one that really through me, 5F50KD.  N1MM says
that one is in Morroco.  Anybody else work him??

Forty meters is just a bust here at my QTH until it gets dark.  I can hear
stations calling, and they CQ right in my face.  I called a whole lot more
stations than I worked.  Once night settled in, I even managed to find a hole
and get a small run going.  Kinda hard with 50 watts.

The power thing is kind of an issue with me.  Unless you have a 200 watt radio,
it is hard to run with 100 watts.  My FT-450SAT puts out about 95 watts full
bore, and I can't do that 100% of the time while CQ'ing.  I have to crank the
power way back to keep the radio from going up in smoke.  I can run the full
power when S&P, but not when running.  I sometime wish I could (I DIDN'T)
switch the amp on and crank everything down to 100 watts.  Then the '450 would
be happy and my SB-200 would be happy.  This whole contest is kind of an honor
thing anyway.  If people are going to run more than 100 watts, they will.

Anyway, other than that, I appreciate the NCJ guys putting this contest on as
it is a blast!!  73
