My teammate N4NX clued me in to the NAQP saying it's a contest tailored for my
(limited) skills.  But maybe not to my limited antennas :)

Had a good time but lack of adequate lower band antennas really hurt when 20
shut down so early.  10 was its usual disappointment :(

My biggest problem was the difficulty in making 80m contacts with my 40m G5R
Jr. antenna.  Apparently there was enough RF in the shack from that mismatch to
reboot my computer between contacts.  Now THAT's a huge pain, believe me.

Otherwise, great fun!
