I got to put in a full 24 hours this year for the tribander/single
wire category.  It was my best contest effort to date; I doubled my
number of QSO's from last year.  In the back of my mind I had 1
million points as a goal and am really excited to have achieved it.

Nothing spectacular to report, just kept plugging along.  Was very
pleased to have T30RT call me Saturday morning while I was running
(jogging?)  Europeans.  Just as a data point, I had a total of 91
mainland U.S. multipliers.  The TS category is a great incentive for
me to try to do well against similarly equipped stations; wish we
had it in more contests.  This year I just logged the dupes that
called me; it seemed quicker and easier in the long run.  Thanks for
all the Q's guys!!
