Critical mistake in not checking 10M at the start. Had actually 
started on 15M and decided quickly that the rate wasn't there
so I dropped to 20M and stayed there a couple hours before
moving back to 15M. A quick check of 10M before the move to 15M 
showed nothing but I guess the action was over by then. The
real mistake was not having the second radio up but I wanted to
simplify this test.

Other than that, it was still my best score in this fun test. 
Just a few more NA mults than I had in 2006 (with almost identical
Q totals). Even had one JA check in. A solid 100Q per hour rate 
for the first 8 hours until hitting 80M then 160M. I will break
that 1K barrier one day. Some rapid QSB during some periods. 
Barely a whisper of a call - no copy OM - then boom!, armchair copy. 
A few brain farts (QBF) too when it comes to copying names. Was that 
Bart? Bert? Burt? <sigh> - sorry NN7SS.

The 3 el 40M yagi lost it's reflector in the windstorm a few weeks
ago but the mismatch was small and easily handled by the tuner. 
Performance seemed no worse for the wear. Condolences to our friends 
in Arizona (my wife ran in with the news mid-contest). 

Probably my last big effort from home until WPX CW though I might 
dink ;>) around in the ARRL DX CW. 

dink, n7wa
