Sorry I don't have the time to comment much! As many probably guessed I did 
end up using the straight key for 100% of the exchanges, and 99% of the CQing 
that I did. My right pointer and index fingers are SORE!! Some of you were 
treated to a fine series of the KK1L patent pending 'I goofed' dits and dahs 
of varying lengths...I have to work on not getting too frustrated with myself. 
I ordered one of the NorCal paddle kits, so I will be learning the iambics. 
I'll shoot for NAQP in January for that...they'll put my picture in the 
dictionary for "Ham fisted" for sure =:-)

I didn't get all the sleep I wanted to before the contest and I caint copy 
sheet when I'm tired! Nice thing about the straight key is I can't send any 
faster than 20WPM and got some unsolicited QRS...that helped since my head was 
kind of foggy.

BTW: I had two folks figure they had copied enough of my exchange when I got 
through my call and into the check...they started up with the QRZ and I know 
they weren't a dupe. Those folks are not in the log.
