Many thanks to Krassy K1LZ for the use of his great station!

My goal before the contest was to break the existing US SOABHP record; by
analyzing my close effort 2 years ago, and the results of the current record
holder, I knew it was going to take about 3000 Qs and decent openings on 10/15M
(for the mults) to do it.  I surpassed the old record about 2200Z, and all the
backscatter on 10M did was add to the total.

I had a great time.  Game plan was to CQ on two bands continuously, by using
several Autohotkey routines that I have to switch focus and combine keystrokes.
 I have to say it worked FB, and justified the time spent in getting it set up.

Highlights: the 20M opening to the Far East on Sat evening.  Worked a number of
BAs and other countries in that area.  The 10M backscatter (to US) opening on
Sunday afternoon/early evening was also great; 10M was open to most of the US,
as I worked states from Wa to Ca/Az, VE4/Mn, NJ/AL/Ga and a number of
Caribean/SoAmer stations.

Thanks to everyone for the Qs.  I had a great time!
