   No contester here ! Been back on 160 for about a year after 35 yr
absence and thought I'd try es get a start on WAS. After 145 Qs, had all 50
plus 22 Dx Qsos.Was having too much FUN to quit so worked enough to reach
the 200 limit.(for not using a dupe sheet)
   Guess I,ll have to order some contest logs for CQ 160, this is sort of
fun ! Also need a new tube for amp, this contesting may get expensive.
Would like to say thanks to W8AV, Goose, for rekindling my Ham Radio fire.
