When it was finished I sat back and was reminded of the scene from the movie The
Great Escape when the yanks were sampling their potatoe based white lightnin'
"Wow" was the word but it was more of a gasp!  20 hours chasing mobiles around
and checking the WX that moved in on them Saturday evening to see how well they
held up.  Fortunately they all came out from under the water OK - at least I
think they did as the action resumed rather quickly.

Some FB operating by all of the mobiles.  Here's my count of Qs and Mults
created by them.

- Qs - (Counties)

N4PN  - 82 - (41)
NY4N  - 50 - (39)
K4BAI - 43 - (36)
W3DYA - 43 - (31)
NM2L  - 31 - (24)
W4MY  - 19 - (17)
KN4Y  -  8 - (7)
K4GA  -  7 - (5)
KC4HW -  3 - (2)
KØEJ  -  2 - (2)

Talk about some gasoline usage!  The mobiles made the event for sure as I
couldn't buy a GA station with a CQ.  I think maybe 5 answered the numerous CQs
I made.

I was accused by one of the mobiles of having 8 or 10 receivers but actually
just 2!  Took that as a compliment.

There were times on 20 meters Sunday when some of the mobiles were +20 to +30
over.  Other times I could barely read 'em.  W3DYA can hear grass grow I
Got beat out by Europeans a number of times.  Big signals from them.

The most memorable moment was listening to the PILE on N4PN in WHEELER county! 
Up, over, in between and off to the side is the kind of operating it took to get
that Q in the log.  Paul was crankin' 'em out.  Minutes later the same kind of
pile up occurred on K4BAI I think in PEACH county.

I missed 13 counties for a sweep.  They were:

73 es thanks to the SECC for a great party.
