The snow storm in the Northeast sure made things interesting.  Had to 
periodically dash outside to keep the driveway clear (all 1000ft of it) and 
knock the snow off the inv L feedpoint.  Also made for fairly high noise 
levels, especially to the Northeast/Europe after 0200Z.  The weather service 
reporting unusual thunder and lightning in some areas of snowfall, so this 
helps explain the QRN to the NE.

A fair number of weaker European stations were being trounced by US hams who 
were running at 1834-1836.  Besides the obvious dx window violations, I 
witnessed ill-mannered operating on several occasions - the last bastion of 
gentlemanly operating (i.e., Topband) was surely tested.  I guess contests can 
unfortunately bring out the worse in some.

Apologies to the low power west coasters I couldn't pull out of the QRN, even 
on the Beverage.  And thanks to KL7RA for calling in with the biggest KL7 
signal I've heard in this neck of the woods (Albany, NY) in quite a long time.
