Friday night I repaired the 15 meter delta loop that had been broken for
months.  In retrospect, I should have put up the 4-el 6 meter beam that my
father gave me the weekend before (more later).

I originally planned to work about 4 hours of the contest.  After I started

    Don't use a stupid nickname like BigPapi.
    I don't remember how many times I had to send it again.

The runs, when they occurred, were short but fun.  Maybe I didn't operate late
enough, but I never felt that 40 meters was any good up here.  I was doing
better on 20 meters (as late as 03Z).  I was happy to work two new RTTY states
on 10 meters (SC and MI) and one on 15m (OH).

Thanks to the folks that moved for me.  Only 5-banders were KB1JZU and AD4EB.

p.s. I enjoyed working the same folks again Sunday on 6 meters in the CQWW VHF
contest.  I remember working K8IR, WA1Z and AB4GG. I'm sure there were others. 
I have never heard 6 meters so good!
