Converted the 40 inv vee to a delta loop this afternoon and although the SWR is
3:1, it still seemed to work as well as the inv vee; didn't get done till just
before dark so had no time to do fine tuning. Never even considered trying 20.
40 was working so well, I probly should have stayed there as 80 turned out
noisy and somewhat weak again. Good to finally work NV and CA, and of course
(getting to be "as usual" now  ;o) OR. Heard the VA7 but couldn't wait for him.
Lost 2 mins at the end on 80 while working K5OT when I missed his NR in QRN, and
THREE other guys started calling him before I'd QSLed his exchange  ;o  ;o  ;o 
<whine> That busted my rhythm and didn't get it back before it was all over
(/whine>  Unlike last week, I'm confident all the log data is good this time 

I realized one reason some in the midwest run up high QSO #s so quickly is
because others in the midwest sit on their freq and play patty-cake. I tried
that but could never sustain more than three claps before it'd all die out and
would have to either tune or CQ again. <whine_again> Another reason, of course,
is from the upper midwest, everyone else is about the same distance away and
thus stronger. So the coasters get beat out often  ;o(  </whine_again>  It
might be inneresting to change the scoring to, say, 2 pts per unique callsigns
vice 1 pt for dupes. But that can cut both ways; one way for coasters to make
lotsa Qs is to work lots of dupes (while, of course, also working reasonable
numbers of mults).
