     765 W/O Passband mod(all the rest of the 765's in the club have
        this mod - I missed it)
     Ten-tec Titan - Fabulous Amp
     NIR 10 (for distorting audio when knobs twisted randomly)

     Operators - KF6A, KJ6TC, NV6O

     Once again, Don, KJ6TC and I set up the station with less than an
hour to go.  I forgot that I had my COM2 switched for modem use.
Standard Larry, Moe and Curly operation.

Best Hour was Don's to JA on 20 - about 95.  10q rateometer hitting 200
at times.

Suprised at our mult total on 75.  I don't know what Phil calls his
antenna, but its some kinda backwards GP with radials cut for phone and
cw.  Works.  Noise was low.

Heard no EU on 40 LP.  Worked a few on SP

20 M with a 3 el (yeah I know, but its a combo DE) short tribander was
also amazing.  90 mults

15 was SA, OCeana, and Carrib.

10 on sunday was FB to LU etc.

Phil has a pot bellied pig name of Blaze that wanders the house.  I
suppose I shoulda recorded his squeal on the DVK for revenge on 75.
