What a great weekend.  This was my best effort yet as far as solo contesting
from home.  My new DX-sloper worked great for me on 160 but I am still
disappointed at not being able to get more of the mults on 40 and 80.  I can
hear them, but at 95W, they just donâ??t hear me! :-( 

Friday evening and Saturday were particularly good for me.  I spent a lot of
time before the contest working out Propagation Predictions but in the end, I
just followed my gut and when 15 opened and stayed open I worked it to death
and was even surprised by a bit of an opening on 10m too.  Sunday was another
story.  I feared that the winds would be a problem, so set my beam on Europe
late Saturday evening.  However, Europe seemed not to open very quickly for me
at any rate, and there I was stuck pointed NE for most of the day.  When there
was finally a break in the gale about 4pm I managed to nurse the beam around to
SW (BOY, would a StepIR have been nice in this condition!!!) and then had to
leave it fixed.  BOY, were the winds high out here on the coast!!

In the final analysis, I am quite pleased with my effort.
