Nice contest. I worked several WRTC stations, some with fine signals for 100
watts. The WRTC antennas seemed to be working well. The low bands were very
noisy here, but Twenty Meters was always open to somewhere. This is actually my
personal best score in the IARU Championship.

I still need to increase my points per QSO somehow. I hope the score is
accurate. My logging program was not correctly scoring points, and I had
trouble fixing some incorrect zone entries. Other than the scoring issues, the
actual operating part of N1MM Logger worked very well.

I didn't leave much of anything on the table, and that always feels good when
it's over. The station worked great. Adding bypass capacitors to the ICE-419
control lines significantly improved the filter's performance. Thanks again to
N4GG for the sage technical advice. I'm already planning some more station
improvements and strategy for next year. C U in the NAQP contests in August.
