  What a surprise!! Great propagation and the new QTH really
  helped!  I would like to take my hat off for the local operators
  that worked very hard to set up the station for the big one.
  We never expected to break the record for north america and much less
  to be so close to the world record.
  A crew composed with very young guys(kp3l 14 yrs old) with not
  much experience didnt have many chances of scoring big, but 
  with all the hard work and me screaming "PASS THE MULTS and KEEP
  THE RATE UP!!!" all weekend long they didnt lack of any motivation!.

  Multiband multipliers in the like of  8Q7DV , 3W5FM, BV7FC, KH2,
BY4SZ, VR2WO, 5V, TF, YB, 9M, DX1, HL, 5A2, V8,
  Really kept us busy all weekend with endless schedules and passing.
 For all of you that dont know I am oficially resting NP4Z for the
 contests and will use KP3Z from now on, NP4Z is just for my personal

 With many scores to come we are celebrating an all time high
 score that means a big win for us here in the Island, specially 
 when it was done completely with local operators, again I feel 
 very proud for the guys that started with me a couple of years
 ago and believed in all this!
 If you hear this guys please congratulate them personally on the
 air since they need all the encouragement they can get!
