Comments>  This was my first Dxpedition for WAE and it was the greatest! I hope
to go back again for 1999WAE CW! Lots of activity and nice 10m opening for 3 hrs
on Sunday afternoon. I never thought it would be so hard to keep caught up with
sending QTCs on Sunday afternoon. Highlights were  having TF3dX call in last half
hour of the contest and then QSYing to two additional bands for a total of 7
more mults. Thanks to all who worked me, and thanks to those who took QTCs,
even though they had relatively low QSO numbers which told me they were not
looking for them. Thanks to MANY who worked me on all 5 bands. Best 73 and DX.
