Comments:  Much better 160 and 80 conditions the second night.  40m was never 
great up here either day. 20m was great the first day, Eu signals from 
0500 but really open from 0800 to 1400 and 1500 to 1930. Horrendous pileups at 
times, tough to get much of a rate but hey, it sure beats CQing w/o answers! 
The double Eu opening was really pronounced the second morning, but generally 
not nearly as good.  15m opened to CAm from 1300 the first day but it was a 
real bonus for it to give us a brief Eu opening around 1330 the second day. 
Nothing on 10 even though we checked frequently. 

Good things....everything worked....20m into Eu.....the power line noise that 
had been bad stayed away for the most part....

Less than good things....Need an "accent recognition" program to make s&p more 
effective 'cause there are sure a lot of non iders out there...very frustrating 
waiting thru a dozen or more Q's w/o any callsign given.  Everyone else seemed 
to know who they had worked but maybe they had the help of packet...And if 
you're going to CQ on 40 try to give the listening frequency once in a 
while....many cq'ing w/o answers and STILL not announcing the rx freq...must be 
a connection there somewhere....
