Not too bad for a lid.

The tx antenna seems much improved.  Lots better response to runs.  The first
few hours had me at 270Q's.   But the next 323 took 15+ hours....

Zero EU here on Saturday.  Heard CS at sundown, but only a few whispers after

Sunday was better, and I managed to find a few Eu stations calling that did not
have pile-ups.  The EI station was 559 here, with no one calling him.  He must
have great ears too.

More butt in chair time helped with the Q count, but a lot of the credit goes
to TX antenna improvements made at suggestion of K2AV.  It sure seemed like I
made a whole lot fewer fills and repeats for the other guys.

Both nights RX here was much better on the K9AY, a 4 S-unit difference in noise
levels.  Lots of 9's in FL....despite a mild winter.  :o

Can't remember working so many NY stations.....
