Crappy conditions and strange ones.  I have never worked an NAQP with such poor
propogation on 10 AND 15. Beamed into a cold front and its associated
thunderstorms the whole time..QRN was ferocious on all bands. I had to work, and
I mean work, for every mult on 10 and 15.  When I finished the contest, my wife
asked me how I did.  I told her I had no idea, I think everybody struggled. 
Judging by the early returns, 10 and 15 sucked big time.

On the positive side, a big thumbs up for Bob Heil's new noise cancelling
headphones.  They really help null out the noise with two computer fans and
general house noise in the background.  Also, a big thanks for those who moved
to other bands and those who repeated their exchange several times because it
got lost in the heavy QRN.
