          There are a few givens in life.  Death, Taxes and you will not make a lot 
of contacts with a G5RV up at 15 feet running 100 watts.  What works pretty well in 
domestic situations, really sucks across the globe.  But knowing that going in, I 
still manage to have tons of fun!!  I did work several new countries in the contest 
and, more importantly, several new countries before the contest.  With stations 
checking out there set-ups, I worked a total of 10 new ones from Wednesday through 
Sunday afternoon.  This contest also showed me I need to work more CW on a casual 
basis.  Never did get into the flow.  All in all, as always, a great time!!        
     I have observed all competition rules as well as all regulations for
     amateur radio  in my country.  My report  is correct and true to the
     best of my knowledge.  I agree  to be bound by  the decisions of the
     CQ Awards Committee.
