Used TOM in memory of my good friend Tom Moore, WX4TM (SK).  Had several
contacts remark that there were alot of TOMs in Alabama.  I am glad that so
many of the Alabama Contest Group members and others supported this in memory
of TOM.  Really miss my old friend!

I got to this a little late.  Spun through 10m but did not hear a single
signal.  Could not try 15m, antenna is still non-op.  

Landed on 20m and found that band in very good condition.  The 204BA is a
little high for this contest, but I have a solution for that coming later this

40m was excellent.  Bounced back and forth between the 40m Delta Loop and the
Cushcraft 40-2CD.  Both seemed to work very well.  I continue to be amazed at
how well the Delta Loop works!

Landed on 80m around 0110Z and the band seemed to have low noise, so I thought
it would do very well.  With an inverted vee at 65', I thought signals were not
loud but were copyable.  Noise was about S8 and most signals were just a little
better.  All was pretty good, until one of the groups with "Legal Limit" landed
just (2khz) above me.  Those boys were really filling up the envelope!

Worked about 7 hours.  Just ran out of steam around 0300Z went to watch some of
the football game and fell asleep, that was all she wrote.  

Thanks to everyone for the QSOs.  

Jim/KC4HW (aka TOM)
