I was heading to Houston on business and Mike, K5NZ, was kind enough to let me 
use his fine station for the ARRL CW DX contest.  This was my first full 
weekend single operator effort from a serious station.  I had a lot of fun, but 
I'm not sure how all you 44-48 hour guys do it!  I survived with many breaks 
and some sleep.

I should have spent more time on 20!  I should have spent more time looking for 
mults!  Oh well.  Conditions on 80 meters were great with Europe sounding more 
like East Coast stations than DX.  A big thrill for this west-coaster was 
working Europe on 160 for the first time ever - MD/DL5AXX.

Many thanks for Mike and Susan for hosting/housing me for the weekend.
