soap: This contest was used to introduce our new club call K0GQ, and as a
training exercise. KB0RTH is a no-code tech who is trying to upgrade to (at
least) General. I am helping him with the code- so we took time off our
code practice to show Robert what he can look forward to doing with his
upgrade. He worked some DX and said "Wow, this is fun!". I think he is
correct, and he will do well with his license upgrade.

The bands were pretty good. Sixtynine countries on 15 from my station is
neat. Did most of this Sunday morning, which was the only real time I had
to devote to the contest. Certainly enjoyed what time I had
in this one. Very much fun for a ssb test. Will look forward to working
everyone in WPX, where I'm sure we will be using my call.
