The low bands were not nearly as productive as I had hoped (as compared to years
past).  40 was good in the late afternoon, but would be like a wet noodle after
dark.   80 was the pits (could be my antenna).   Good copy on lots of stations
that would just ignore me.   The A index was a little high at the start of the
contest so I thought the second day would be better.  Instead, I felt it was
clearly worse.   I'm not sure why.   15 meters barely opened at all on Sunday. 
 No 15 JA runs on either of the days.   I can now say that I've experienced a
solar minimum as a contester.   OK, the character building excercise is now
beyond old.   The bright spot was in working VP6DX in the contest on 4 bands
160, 80, 40 and 15.

The mult count is low due to very poor low band performance.

A bad day of contesting is better than a good day at work.

No significant station changes thus far.
