Another great Sprint (has there ever been a truly bad one?)!

Thanks to Bill, KE5OG, for the use of his station.  His setup is very neat,
well organized, and comfortable to operate -- and it all worked well besides. 
There were a few intervals when it seemed like I was constantly getting beat,
but for the most part everything was fine.

I wonder if anyone has ever determined, mathematically, what the optimum ratio
of stations calling CQ to those answering in the Sprint is (given the useable
band width)?  Sometimes it seemed like there were way too many stations trying
to answer the CQers and not enough calling CQ (or indicating that they were
available for a call).

Again, thanks for all the fun.
