This was a casual effort in an otherwise fun contest.  The effort on QTCs is all
on the EU end - perhaps I should go back to sending them manually?  I never
could raise any EU stations on 15 meters although I could hear quite a few. 
Better than average antennas do make a difference - I was listening to K1ZZ run
EU stations that I couldn't even hear!  QRP to a modest antenna falls short in
declining propagation conditions on the high bands.  I operated around family
activities and chores, so I could have selected better times for propagation -
the later afternoons were definitely more productive for QRP.

73, and thanks to those who patiently copied my weak signals,

Mike, K8CN

Rig: K3 @ 5 watts to Lazy H (cut for 20 meters), upper doublet sagging badly at
15 meters above ground level.
