Couldn't get off work early on Friday, so started late.  Was frustrated by noise
& very tired, so packed it in about 0400Z.  Saturday, I put up two 580'
beverages - one to NE & one to NW.  The NE one worked great, but I have some
line noise to the west, so the NW one wasn't much better than the transmit
antenna.  Luckily I know the source and my power company is very responsive -
just need to schedule them out here.

Condx on Saturday night were the best I've ever heard to EU from West Texas.

49 Zone 14
35 Zone 15
 3 Zone 16
 1 Zone 20 (YO3APJ)
 1 Zone 40 (TF4X)

Had a good (for out here) EU run on 1887 from about 0520Z-0600Z,  Heard T70A
with no pile up, but he couldn't hear me.  Couldn't snag OZ7YY either. Never
heard NB or LAB.  Need more transmit antenna oomph (coming soon).  Also, I will
be putting up two more beverages for SE & SW for Carribean, SA & Pacific.  I'm
sold on them!

Out West, Struggled for 11 JA's and got 2 RA0's, 3 KH6's & KL7RA thru the

Worked all states - thanks to KL7RA for calling in for the last one.  And 2 DC
stns to boot - tks KE3X & W3DQ.

Still my biggest score ever in this contest.  Had lots of fun.  Thanks to all
for the QSO's.
