Was not planning to work the contest but decided to do it a day or two before
the weekend.  Wore myself out walking 18 holes of golf on Friday afternoon a
hundred miles away and then rushed to beat the darkness to make two trips up
the tower to fix something.  In my confusion I thought the contest started an
hour later than it did and started climbing the tower for the second time after
the contest had already started.  Stayed awake for first 24 hours of the contest
and then pretty much crashed from about 0200Z on Sunday until about 0900Z.  

Thanks to N5DX for getting me all set up to use two radios.  It would have been
boring without something to do during all those CQs.  

80m would have been much better if I had not had an RF problem that prevented
me from spending too much time on the band.  Most of my contacts on 80m
resulted from finding someone to call instead of running stations.

I had fun and it was good practice using the two radios.
