My first contest using CW Skimmer 1.2 with a Perseus SDR (no SoftRocks here). 
Using CW Skimmer can be more fun than the old-fashioned way of doing things.  I
worked almost every multiplier by "Skimming" or CQing, just to see what it could
do.  What a pleasure it was not to manually tune past duplicate after duplicate
when looking for new stations to call.  

Now, it's far from perfect, often spotting calls like M5WMU (instead of W5WMU),
but these were relatively easy to deal with once I got used to ignoring them.

As for the contest, a combination of no sunspots and a K-index as high as 5
not make for good conditions, though there certainly was plenty of CW activity
anyway.  My score did improve compared to last year when I didn't have CW
Skimmer or an automated SO2R box.  I had 125 more QSOs and 19 more mults.
