Short spurts on and off during the event.  I had never heard S9 signals from the
East Coast on 160m here before until the wee hours Saturday morning. 
Incredible.  Wish I would have been in Alaska for this one!

Murphy caused my AL-80B output to drop slowly to 250w so not sure what's up
with that since the tube is only 2 months old.  Checked the HV readings and no
problem there.  Hooked my TXRX up to another AL-80B and that worked fine.

QLF Department (and apologies to RW0CWA).  I thought it was W0CWA who kept
sending 'RA' as I kept asking for a QTH/State repeat.  Finally, I heard the 'R'
at the beginning of the call and then things made sense.

There were some pretty Monster signals on 160m this weekend, with undoubtedly
many hefty power company bills coming soon.

73 & Tnx for the Q's...
