Only a limited amount of operating time Saturday afternoon for this one, 
but it sure was fun! Hard to believe I'd say that about a CW contest just 
a few years ago, but I'm beginning to like CW.

First contact was N0AT for my only 10m QSO. Most contacts were S & P, but 
I managed to make a few calling CQ. That's something that is going to 
take more practice. 

SECC members were out in force, but I didn't work 'em! Worked only KU4OZ, 
who is on my team.
