Highlight--working WY, VI, and NL Sunday in just 10

Since I wasn't fully recovered from my trip to Sandusky Ohio for
the Microwave update the previous weekend (about 1250 miles of 
driving), I kept it simple and just ran the Heathkit HW-9 that 
cost me $160 plus another $60 for a 400 Hz CW crystal filter.
