Whew!  Slow bands in the morning with 15 giving us the best performance for the
first 6 hours or so.  20 was quick early one, but quickly became a mass of
dupes.  Runs were erratic (for whatever reason) and our totals were poor until
the CW guy (W0NXS) showed up around 2200z.  I think southern Kansas is the
Blackhole of the blackhole!  Only a smattering of JAs (mostly early on) for us
and no other Asia.  Very few AF as well.  NA and EU made up the bulk of our
score.  I guess next time we'll have to use a better grade of mouthwash!

We didn't specifically count the WRTC stations, but the total was way low and we
came no where close to getting all 52.  Overall we had a good time and exceeded
our personal goals.  We were blessed with very mild weather for July in KS which
made it a bit tougher to really concentrate on the radio with such a nice
day/evening outdoors.

Someday, perhaps, the propagation gods will smile on our efforts.
