soap: Special 1 x 1 call was courtesy of Raytown (Mo) ARC for "Raytown
Roundupn Days" - QSL via KM0L. We had fun with call and gave it maximum
exposure, so everyone is happy! The 1 x 1 caused confusion when we answered
cq's- we kept having to tell them "THAT's IT". When we were calling cq
there was no confusion.
We had our sweep at 07:30 z when NP4A answered our cq on 80 meters. That
was cool! We ended our 24 hours at 01:00 z, which was two hours before the
end. I think this was probably good strategy since the Sunday evening rates
on 40 and 80 were the pits. We had good rate on 40 up until about 23:00
when it got dark, then the bands got noisey and went long. We were using
beverages to recieve on 40. 
Also, we used an inv V on 40 instead of Jerry's 3 ele at 120 feet thinking
the V would be better for statesides- guess that was correct as 40 was THE
band as can be seen by the breakdown.
Great fun! Let's do it again!
