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
