 Soapbox Comments

 Well, I missed the 200 QSO goal and the 100k point goal, but I had alot 
 of fun anyways! The DA0FF web site was cool! The use of packet was great! 
 A index of 3 hurt propagation the first day, but about 0300z on the 
 second day the A index improved to 0, then later on rose again to 2...
 Kind of like the stock market! Heard some good mults for EU - TU2XZ,  
 TL5A, KL9/K9AA, and KL7HF. 
 I missed the EU sunset the second day due to church and lunch with 
 the XYL (1645-1900z), probably took a hit on 15m for that, but 
 limited family QRM, hi. 
 Excitement of the contest: 
 Cat almost puked in my briefcase while listening to RW2F on 40m! Luckily, 
 I caught the puke with a folder before my briefcase got trashed! 
 See ya next year! 

 73, Eric K9GY
