Yuck.  That was ugly.

Rebar warmed up the rig in Makrothen, and then I took over at 0Z for the
Sprint.  Unfortunately, I got off to a terrible start, and was out of sync for
this contest.  

I forgot my lesson learned from the March 2007 RTTY Sprint: the RTTY Sprint
requires a completely different strategy than the SSB Sprint!  That different
mentality hurt my QSO total.

I know the dupe rule keeps us busy, but it totally changes the character of the
contest into one big dupe fest where we work each other 15 times.  I don't like
that, yet I realize there are substantial drawbacks to eliminating the dupe

I heard AK and ID, but didn't work them.  

Thanks for the QSOs.
