Interesting condx.  15M was gangbusters at the beginning & I ignored 10M
pretty much.  But 10M was open good later mid afternoon with good E-skip in all
directions.  20M was lethargic and worked hard to get what I did.  Had two bad
hours during 2200Z & 2300Z which hurt.  40M & 80M were as expected, but
160M was a surprise  -- a bit noisy, but good skip to the East Coast.  Time was
up at 0501Z, so probably missed some mults on 160M.  Mults in general were
down, but had enough of an opening on 10M & 160M to help with the total.  
I imagine there will be some really huge scores!  I'm pretty sure this is my
best August score ever.

Thanks to all for the Q's!  This is a fun contest!
