921 x 441 = 1,190,259 claimed score.  Operating time = 18 hours.

If this had been Sweepstakes weekend, the east coast would finally
have had their year to take the top ten.  Far and away the worst 
band conditions for a major contest in the last two or three years.  
I had intended to operate the whole 36 hour stretch; instead I gave
in after about 18 hours of operating.
I realized I'd had enough S&Ping on two radios when I took a break 
about 9 PM Saturday night and couldn't motivate to return to the 
radio room.  I was only on for about one hour on Sunday and 20m still 
sounded miserable.

Chalk it up to experience !  See you all in the IARU. 

Scott, W4PA
