The score doesn't reflect it, but this was one of my better outings. I missed
most of the first 10 minutes due to an SWR problem that waited until the
starting gun to emerge.  

I now have two K9AY arrays (well, 1/2 and 1/4-sized versions to fit in the
suburban lot), and it really helped my RX, especially on the second radio. 
This is the first time in a non-dupe event that I pretty much worked a steady
flow of QSOs.  I'm also using switchable dipoles on 20M & a short dipole on 40M
now (still the inverted-L on 80M), and I think that's helping--it sure did
during FD. Still, plenty of room to improve--in particular, adapting to
Win-Test/reducing the QLF--but this was an encouraging night for me. 

Thanks to all for the QSOs. I'm definitely looking forward to the next ladder.
Congratulations to the leaders.  Great work.
