When Bill told me that he had a cold this week and invited me to use his
I jumped at the opportunity.  It is too bad that I am not an experienced
phone op 
or I could have had a REALLY nice score at his wonderful station.  I don't
know if
I ever made a band change in less than five minutes which I think hurt the 
score and I don't know WHAT I was doing in the third hour, but my rate of
only 60 
took me out of the running.  Anyways, this was probably the most fun I have ever
had in a contest even though it was on Phone instead of CW.  I would like to
Bill, Martha, and Billy for all of the hospitality they showed me this weekend.
(They even fixed a flat tire on my car!)
