It was a weird week culminating with no real sleep for 3 days before the contest
and no time for a nap on Friday afternoon. As a result I just wasn't able to
keep my eyes open or my mind alert for most of the first 36 hours. My revised
goal was a paltry 1000 Qs and DXCC on 3 or more bands and I did that by mid day
Sunday. Normally this is my second-favourite contest of the season after
CQWW-SSB but not this year.

Equipment wise everything was mostly OK. This was the first major CW contest
for the K3s and it's just amazing in close-in piles. Adding my own Skimmer with
LP-PAN didn't do anything good (in fact it was more a problem than anything) so
I shut it down. Some RF into N1MM caused headaches on 20m, which was unexpected
and never happened before. Amp, radio and antennas were flawless.

With major oral surgery pending next week, I don't know how much talking I'll
be able to do the week after for the SSB edition. But for now, all I want to do
is sleep for 3 days straight.
