Almost all activity was in the first hour and a half.
Later, most activity was on CW with only a few contacts in the last hour.
I was not hearing the usual weak ones as I discovered the afternoon of the 
sprint that my mast mounted preamp somehow got waterlogged with abt 2 tsp of 
water and I removed it and used another preamp in the shack behind the 140 ft 
of LMR400 - not good. The mast preamp gain & NF seems to be OK after an alcohol 
bath to dry it out, but I have to find the leak before it goes back up on the 
tower. Contesting always brings out the problems you don't expect.
Tnx to the sponsors of the event and stations wked. CU next week on 432 sprint.
