One of the better Sprints in some time. Lots of scatter worked on 20, and quite
a few three band qsos. 

Unfortunately after a great start (50 in the first half hour) I limped to the
finish line. First two hours were good, but in the third my second radio (40
meters), a TS-830S half as old as I am, started to develop frequency
instability. By then 80 was the big band, but I was not able to effectively use
the second radio after that. Then with about 10 minutes to go I decided to put
the first radio on 40, at which time I noticed the amp with that radio was not
keying. So from SO2R/KW I ended up as SO1R/100 watts.

Now to figure out how I missed Florida!
