Good Es openings at times.  First two hours and very last were the best.
Best rate was 155 at 0100-0200Z first night.  S7 line noise for several
hours Saturday morning nearly shut me down.  It reappeard Sunday, but was
S3 and only lasted about an hour.

Lots of South America and some Pacific DX.  Had a short opening to Europe
Sunday morning, and was able to work about 15 Europeans.  Never worked an
African or Asian station!  Neatest QSO was being called by VK8HA long path
