My favorite contest!   Thanks to all those who called us, especially EI7M,
GW3YDX, and KH8/N8OLS.  The only station we called and did not work was
SP7GIQ.  I apologize to those who called that we could not hear well enough to
work.  Next year's improvement will be a east beverage.  Althought the band
was quiet, conditions were average except for the good JA opening Saturday
morning.  We worked 37 JA's (all Saturday morning-could barely hear JA Sunday
morning).  Also worked FP/W8MV, YN4/WK6O, RA0FF, P40P, SM4CAN, F5IN, SL3ZV,
and 3E1DX.  Where was the Carribean?  I operated from the start until 7:15 AM
Saturday morning, my 6th contest all-nighter in the last 6 weeks (three of
them were during the EME contest weekends), and I was feeling tired before the
contest began, but the 707 Q first night kept me awake.  Paul, KF7MD, operated
the second night except for 4 AM until 7:30 AM when I foolishly told him I
would work some more JA's.   With the new top loaded 90' vertical and improved
NE beverage, Paul and I significantly improved our score over past years and
came close to breaking AA6TT's Colorado record.  We met our goal of over a
1000 Q's.  Will we ever meet our goal of top 10?  Only if that once-a-season
European opening that favors us occurs on a contest weekend.  Not that I wish
ill on my eastern brethern, but Lord couldn't you arrange that just once? (hi)
Equipment:  90' vertical, NE beverage, FT-1000, Titan at 1200 watts
