This was my first time entering this one, and I didn't know if I'd have any time
for it at all, but managed a couple of hours right at the beginning.  

It's interesting working a QSO party for the state next door.  Bands weren't so
good here, so 10 was dead-dead-dead and 15 was pretty much the same.  On 20m I
could only hear DX giving their "DX" section report to Ohio stations
- no joy there, so I wound up on 40m, which was pretty good as long as I kept
away from the QRM.  I hoped to get back for the last couple hours on 80m, but
it was not to be, so ... I had a lot of fun anyway.  Hope you did, too.

Thanks to Mad River for putting on this interesting and fun contest.  I hope to
make a more substantial effort next year, but I feel pretty good about my
numbers given the available op time.  Thanks to all and best rx de kt8k - Tim
