Still trying to get used to TR. Ended up making all the first nights QSO's,
and looking at the log later realizing that I forgot to change MODE, so
looks like all was CW. Whoops.

Haven't run SSB tests in a long time other than VHF- and it shows. Condx
good - Eu at their sunrise was great. I4JMY and OT9T were well over S9 into
Western New York. Many W6/7 loud here as well, on nothing more than a bent
133' dipole turned into a top-loaded vertical with a dozen radials laying on
the ground.

Hope to have at least one NE/SW beverage, and perhaps a better tx antenna
next year. Good luck to all.
