Sincere thanks to Paul, K8PO, for the use of his great station from the comfort
of my home inside the Washington, DC, beltway!

After five years of serious efforts in this contest, this was a casual
gentlemanly op, remote SO1R.   Goal was to give out Maine on all bands and
check out the limits of remote operation.  Spent about two thirds of the time
on low bands with a few hours running on 20 Saturday morning and 15 Sunday. 

Antennas were fixed on Europe so didn't do much with mults to the West or East
Asia.  After adjusting from last remote attempt, latency was not an issue. 
Lost connectivity for a few minutes during the 15 meter run but otherwise the
remote stuff is pretty impressive.  Had a 207 hour on 20 the first morning and
a 205 hour on 15 the second.  Being "red meat" was actually a
distractor until the zero beat pile was knocked down.  

Special congrats to W2GD who appears to have smashed the QRP record from P40W. 
He was weak but very readable on 160 with virtually no QRN.
