Was on call for our practice this weekend, so I knew participation
would be limited, however, Alexander Graham Bell cospired to limit
it even more than anticipated.  Busy pager coupled with a couple of
mid-afternoon and early evening emergency room runs prevented me
from getting any real momentum. Stayed away from 40 and 80, and
have no antenna on 160 - 40 and 80 phone DX always reaffirms why I
spend most of my time on CW - HI.  10 meters was dead as a doornail
everytime I listened, although I did see a few South American spots
there when I checked the cluster after the contest Sunday evening.
Never heard a thing myself.  It was till fun, but conditions can only
get better now.  Vy 73, Don
