Propagation is still not good.  I did not hear any openings to Europe or Africa
on ten or fifteen.  160 and 80 were pretty noisy, but I did manage several
contacts.   I was able to work nearly all of the stations that I could tell
were there, mostly the multi-multi DX stations.

I am still intrigued that stations will use recorded CQers with such poor
quality that it requires listening several times to figure out their call sign.
 Almost all of my duplicate contacts were because I interpreted the call sign
differently on the dupe contact.  Having the CQ in a different voice than the
operator's makes the transition very difficult as well.

But, I still had a great time.  It is fun to break the pileups with 50 to 80
