Got a 1/2hr late start into the contest. I focused on 20 meters and once it fell
out, threw in the towel with the exception of my two low band contacts with my
neighbor whom I found operating. 

As far as 20 meters, the band started out great but by early afternoon, some
heavy QSB started set in. A few stations called and by the time I sent my
report, they had fallen out and were unreadable. With those band conditions, it
was rough with those exchanges especially when the other station only sent their
name & state once before turning it back to me. Obviously when the band is
great, this is not a problem.  

I had a few stations send something other than the two letter designator for
their state. N1MM logger grabbed it and made it right on all occassions which
was nice. I only had one station return my CQ with their full report. 

I did honor one request for a PSK31 contact with WB2HTO, who needed Alaska on
that mode. Some very nice signals from the NE today. Lots of great operators
and I worked several new.  RTTY is one of my favorite modes and it's great to
see all the activity during these contests. 

Thanks for the contacts and sorry to those I missed.
