Woo-Hoo again! A second time over 1,000 pts while QRP!

This week I used the K0PC contest module "NCCC Sprint" 
for Writelog. It worked great on my computer running Win XP.
Available at:  http://www.ncccsprint.com/writelog.html 

I also spent a lot of time trying to get my Windows 7 notebook 
setup with Writelog, the K0PC contest module, a USB to 
serial port converter for rig control, CW sending, etc.
but not ready for prime time - maybe next week...

I spent a lot of time calling Californians on 20m - but they 
were running East Coast!  Still, 20m was good with 21 QSOs 
in 15 minutes.  Again, the thinning crowd made it clear people 
had moved up off 20m.

REMINDER: PLEASE SPREAD OUT! Everybody seemed to be 
packed in .039 to .041.

40m was quite reasonable, with 11 QSOs in 8 minutes.

3 minutes on 80m yielded BC, WA and CA mults! I heard 
quite a few more - but no time left if I wanted to try 160m.

and in the last seconds, local W7OM gave me WA on 160m!
K7SS, N6RO and some others heard there - but time was out.

Thanks for all the fun!
