Conditions were good, but seemed a bit funny. Lots of QSB and some hollow
sounds. For such high flux, 40 got long fast. And I think I would rather
fight the FOC guys than the RTTY folks on 40m!
I got beat out when calling guys a lot! Sometimes 3 or 4 times in a row,
which is really hurts the rate. Fantastic activity and good ops - I kept
the keyer between 36 and 40 WPM all night.
Congratulations to K1KI. Tom got ahead of me from the start and just when I
would almost catch up, he would blast ahead again. That N6TR guy has this
contest figured out!
Score for K5ZD:
Total 354 x 49 = 17,346
I thought I was doing great for mults. Especially when FS5PL gave me #7.
Never heard a C6A or ZF2 at all. Got everything else I heard.
