Well, that was fun!  Spent four hours in the Sprint mixing it up with the 
big boys and the lil K2 held its own just fine!  On 20M, made most of my 
QSO's with CQ's.  On 40M, almost all were search and pounce, but most 
were with a single call.  40M was a big surprise as I thought the band 
sounded better on my K2 than on the FT-1000MP.  The little notebook 
switching P.S. also held up just fine and the sprint increased my states 
worked with the K2 to 45.  Best distance was WL7KY on 20M.  One DX 
station worked, LY2BTA.

Ron, you weren't on the "Boring Team" but on the "Really Boring Team" 
along with me!  N6TR from Boring, OR organized two teams.
