Had a blast.  I felt good.  Things seemed to work as planned, except my 80m wire
would not tune up in the SSB range.   I said to hell with it and transmitted
anyway, and never had a problem being heard.   Strange.   Thankfully the radio
lived through it to see better days.   Low QRN on 80m -- it was great!
I obviously don't have the knack for knowing when to operate on the proper
band.   40m seemed fairly dead to me on CW and SSB the many times I checked.  
I tried both wires.   Not sure, but I'm guessing I just wasn't on 40m at the
right time.   Made some 20m Qs.   By far 80m was the band where I garnered the
most Qs.   Didn't even check 10m; made one Q on 15m.
Worked a lot of OH counties and a lot of ops I recognize.   I didn't manage to
work anybody in BELM, CARROLL, HARR, although I think I heard one of the
mobiles down in Belmont but they disappeared before I could respond.   I was
really hoping for a sweep of Ohio -- the stations were there.   I just lacked
what was needed to complete that task.
Great contest.   Lots of participation.  Thanks to everyone who jumped in the
