I actually stayed at this longer than I expected too.  I woke up 30 minutes
before the start of the contest but decided to sleep in.  Got in the shack an
hour late.  This proves I was not real serious about this.
I decided to do this one with my backup antennas which is a 4 high stack of
tribanders and wires for the low bands.  I never even connected the 160m
antenna.  Made one qso on 160 with N4OGW using the 80m vee and a high swr (good
Saturday late afternoon I decided that I was going to use better antennas on 20
and 40 so I connected 3 of the 20m yagis and the top 40m beam.  I was a bit
shocked that so many could actually hear me with a Q-power signal.
Pretty good signals from EU on 10m for a while, peaking at s7 but I just did
not have enough power to work them considering that the triband antennas (which
is all that I used on 10 and 15) are well over 400 feet away from the shack and
fed with a long run of RG213.  There is a lot of power loss in that setup but
so be it.  I just wanted to keep the setup simple.
If I decide to this thing next year qrp I am most certainly going to use the
better antennas and put in more time.
Thanks for the patience digging me out of the noise.
