This was my first semi-serious effort in this contest in quite
some years.  I use to do quite well in this one with several plaques 
on the wall for Top Zone 4, Top USA and even a Top World in this contest.

Over the years I just got tired of fighting all the SSB QRM... but this
weekend I had nothing better to do... so I figured it was a good
warm-up for ARRL DX SSB next weekend.

I had 253 QSO's in the first hour.... almost as much fun as being at
PJ2T on 20m the first hour.  Then a 149 and 101 hours... and it all
slowed down big time from there.

Nice to be called by VP6DX, with Milt N5IA at the mic.  He said
I was the first contact for them in the contest and it was 15 minutes
before sunset there.

Other good DX that called me was UU7J, ES5RW, CX6VM, PJ2DX.  

Thanks to all the DX stations that were on for this one.

Transmit Antenna:  160' guyed tower, base insulated, series fed.
with 120 radials and 30K feet of wire.

Receive Antennas:  10 beverages ranging from 880 to 1,100' and
a low dipole.

GL to all next weekend in ARRL DX SSB.
