 Final Score = 24822 points.
 Total time: approx 12.75 hours of 36

Best time: Breaking the VY1JA pileup on 15m (NOT during
the time J was talking about in his email!) on the first

2nd best time: Running on 40m with 10-15 QRP stations
in an hour on Saturday night and a couple of 'em making
noises like I was doing THEM a favor by hanging in there!

Worst event: Finding out that I really hadn't cured the
RF problem getting back into the CW keyer line on the 
computer. On the other hand, I didn't notice much 
computer-generated noise on the rig this time, so at
least some of what I did seems to have worked. Argh!

It was fun (mostly)!  See ya again in a couple of weeks.
