I had a total blast today.  I missed my goal of 500 QSO's however I did break my
best score so all is good.  10 meters seamed to be open however no one was
really there but 2 locals and a YN that was really loud.  15 meters was so so. 
East and west coasts were pretty easy to work on 1 call however the middle was
very weak.  20 Meters was pretty good till about 2330z when every bailed out
for 40 meters like some one popped a can of CS gas.  40 meters was in good
shape from about 00z till 03z when it started to die. 80 meters was like a zoo.
 Being cramped in to 25 khz made it hard to find a place to run.  I tried
several times to establish a run and could find no takers.  S&P fared OK
however beyond some 6's and 9's locals we only to be worked.  I am sure this is
my antenna as the GAP Titan does not radiate well on 80 meters.

Something that did work well was Call Stacking.  I finally have the hang of it
now and used it several times to run 3 or 4 stations in a row.  I can cut
through a small pile up like a hot knife thru butter.  This will really come in
handy when I head to KP2 in September:).
