 Collins 30L-1 ~700W
 75m = dipole at 40'/ Butternut HF6V
 40m = Cushcraft A3S at 43' / Butternut HF6V
 20m/15m/10m Cushcraft A3S at 43'


 I must have done something wrong, the condiions on 20m should have me
 with QSO totals much higher.  It could be my tired brain and body after
 05Z.  I did try and get ahead of my sleep the week before.  If I got an
 extra hour, I was lucky. I forced myself through some really dismal rates
 in the wee hours. The last six hours of the contest seemed as long as the
 first 18.

 20m had a slow start Sunday morning.  With the slow ramp up I didn't
 even think to check 15m.  I really hope I didn't miss out on any
 surprises.  Except for the VKs and JAs in the last 1/2 hour and the UA9
 the last hour nothing special happened.

 I am happy with the improvement that the 40m add-on to the A3S made.  In
 no case were signals louder with the vertical.  It feels good to get
 unsolicited "nice signal" reports and not having to repeat myself.
 Trying to run on 40m was still not succesful.  I think many stations
 stations forget the band above 7.100!  There were a few times I thought
 there weak stations answering, but I have almost convinced myself I was
 imagining it.  I thought it was ironic that HC2EE signing "R2" was
 giving 7.150 as his listening freq.  I could have used the mult on 40m.

 I have observed all competition rules as well as all regulations established
 for amateur radio in my country.  My report is correct and true to the best
 of my knowledge.  I agree to be bound by the decisions of the Awards
