Had a tough start...  planned on taking a half hour off time right off the bat
as we had some family over here early for my wife's grandma's funeral early
next week!  When I got on, the computer would not talk with the radio.  I had
everything hooked up from the last test.  Pulled up a few old logs and
everything was fine, so I knew it was all in line o.k.  Still would not work
with the NAQP software...  Tried to re-download the NAQP software and still had
the same bug.  Rather than lose more time, everything was hand sent and I also
had to manually make band switches.

Daylight hours were tough.  Most 40 meter qso's were during daylight.  Only 2
10 meter qso's were with WI locals.  15 opened nice to the west coast and a few
scatter into IL, MN and surrounding states.  20 from my QTH was horrible.  I
missed numerous usually given mults on the east coast.  I just could not hear
anything out east with a few exceptions and some FL.  

40 produced some decent results early however got nosier as the time went on. 
80 and 160 were both decent from here.  Had a problem with the 160 vertical,
tunes great but no receive.  The 1/4 wave for 80 tuned up nice and had decent
receive and that is what I used there.  Anything on 160 is always a bonus from
here.  After I had worked out what I could hear on 40 and 80, could always go
there and pick up some new mults.  Only one VE2 that kept CQin as I called,
otherwise worked all I heard there which is rare!!

80 had fairly low noise as well and was able to work several there, some
earlier than expected.  Overall had a good time admist log troubles which I
will sort out before next weekend and other obligations going on!

See you all next weekend!
