Soapbox: Had I known how close I was to the TN record for this
game I may have played longer, harder and smarter;
but, nevertheless, I had FUN as usual. There were
other unknowns, too. TR Log wasn't correctly track-
ing Mults worked, so I played this entire game not
knowing which Counties I needed! Actually, it was
kinda fun flying by the seat of my pants. Later, I
realized the misconfiguration of TR Log was due to
my copying the TN QSO Party file and forgetting to
edit it. Duh. I could've manually tracked the
Mults, of course, but it just didn't seem to be that
important. After 500+ Qs, a good night's rest and
before going to Sunday school, I reconfigured the log.
After church, I re-entered the game and TR Log worked
fine for the remainder of the playtime. However, I
had only a partial picture. 2/3 of my log was in a
different format. Now I need to decide whether it's
worth the bother to edit the bulk of my log to make
it match the final 1/3 format that tracked correctly.
Ughhh! My post game activities indicated that a
sweep was made on Q #373 @ 2335Z (TU W0EAX/6 Yolo),
less than 8 hours into the game. 10-m was HUMONGOUS!
51 Mults were worked on 10-m. While avoiding DX was
a challenge, this was the first time in years that
I've worked a JA on 10-m. Lots of EU, VK/ZL and AF.
TCGers heard: W4CAT, K4LTA, W9WI and K0EJ. .- .-.
