Had a good start, but 20M petered out too early and I was left with low dipoles
and a high noise level on 40/80M.  Signals, particularly on 80M, seemed to be
down as compared to the CW Sprint just a week ago; the bands were also much
noisier.  On 80M, more than one Midwest stations with S7 signals kept CQing as
I attempted to work them, so the noise level must have been high for everyone. 
I haven't done many SSB Sprints, but I seemed to run out of stations to work on
20/40, and there weren't a lot of stations on 80M that could hear me (FL was my
best DX on 80M).
