Had "Space Weather" up on a separate monitor given solar condition, but never 
expected an M1 class flare 5 minutes after the start.  Upper bands went nearly
dead by 1820Z with that nice "rolling ocean" sound, and I considered taking an
hour off starting in the first hour - that would have been a mistake.  Anyway,
you could hear it fade away by 1930Z, so back to plan A for off times.  
There are still no decent 10 and 15 antennas here, and with LP I can't push
through poor conditions.  Will somebody PLEASE add a HP category to the August
NAQP?  Based on signal strengths of known stations, a lot of the guys have
their amps on as it is.  The playing field will be a lot more level if we make
it legal. 

This contest is always fun.  I tied or beat my prior August scores on most
bands, except for 10/15.  80 and 160 QRN were down for an hour or two but came
back up for the last two hours.  CU in the next one...N4GG

2X FT1000MP+INRAD, WRITELOG, Home Brew SO2R.  Wires in the woods, including
