Nice test. The highlight was an hour on 15 with 160+ QSOs on Sunday morning --
the first time ever from this QTH (since I moved here in 2004). The biggest
flop -- missed 10 meter opening to EU at the very same time. All my fault -- I
should not let NU3C to sleep -- the mult radio was on 10, I saw the band scope
dancing like crazy, but was so occupied with the pileup... It costs us at least
30 mults -- not enough to catch up with K9RS, but still sad. Another
disappointment -- poor performance of our 160 meter vertical. It was not just
the matter of propagation -- W1JR (less than 10 miles west of my QTH) easily
worked C50C, but I didn't despite many calls. I need to get back to the drawing
board and build something serious for 80 and 160. Maybe next summer project...

Thanks to N1MM for keeping score on the http://www.getscores.org/ -- real
encouragement, especially on Saturday morning when they were ahead of us.
Indeed, I would love to see more people posting their scores -- it makes the
test more live. I hope W1VE will fix the detailed scoreboard before the CQ WW
CW. I wish the real winners show up on the scoreboard during the test, too --
so we "the small pistols" could run after them. K5ZD proved that it doesn't
