C4XL 40m portion has a CW/SSB relay which is needed for SSB, and it failed
again... had 4:1 SWR, threw a tuner in-line, but found my low dipole was just
as effective.  QRN on 75m was absolutely unbearable. I had to use my tri-bander
as the receive antenna for 80% of QSOs -- who'd have thunk you needed beverage
antennas to operate the Sprint.

Congrats to those with big mult totals like W9RE and K7SS.  I guess I was
operating a different contest this time around.  I would have preferred to be
in the same contest as those guys!! 

Kevin N5DX was incredibly loud here on 40 and 80, blew my ears off!  Bill
N6ZFO, I heard you everywhere!!  

No SO2R yet, but I'm working on it (slowly).  And I just picked up a used
tri-bander to help give me some antenna diversity here.
