I hadn't planned on working this one at all but got rained out of
working this weekend.  Always wanted to try a contest QRP so I opened up
the TS450, cranked it 
down to 5 watts and had at it.  Tough going except for a phenomenal run
early Sunday afternoon.  Ran for about an hour and a half solid on 20
which definitely helped my score.  Thanks to all of those who struggled
to pull out my exchange.  This is a fun contest.  My only suggestion
would be to change the 10 Meter suggested frequency from 28.310 to
something outside the recognized non-contest window of 28.3 - 28.5. 
This, of course didn't impact my score since 10M never opened here to
PA.  I did hear W3HA on 15M but he couldn't hear me.
