Nice weekend jaunt/race with son Scott at the wheel.  Murphy showed up a few
times with some keying problems during some of the runs.  Sorry for sounding
like a LID during the mayhem.  I got so frustrated that I shut down the
computer and hand logged for a while on 3 occasions!  A noisy 2-position
antenna switch that I hastily mounted too close to the operating position was
the culprit. 

For those of you that think state QSO Parties are boring and don't generate any
real action, try going out as a mobile.  I enjoyed 7 hours above 100 Q's/hr -
and a personal best (mobile) rate of 162 during the last full hour of the 18
hour test.

We in Texas really appreciate all of you who participated in the TQP this year
- and special thanks to all the folks that worked me in multiple counties along
the trail.  I keep hearing that 'the mobiles make the contest' but without
someone to work from around the country/world, we in-state stations would have
a pretty dull contest.
