602 QSOs, 2 Countries, 72 Sections = 93,758    abt 15 hours

FT-1000D, Alpha 76PA, inverted L (vertical part only 19 feet tall), beverages.
The inverted L is mounted on top a metal roof barn (65 x 16) with no radials.
The metal roof is a great groundplane, even one this small. Everything I put
up there works great.

Also had lots of people move in on my running frequency. Seemed very cutthroat
below 1825. I know these guys could hear me. One WD5 came right on freq and
stayed there for abt 3 minutes till I sent his call with a few choice words.

Insert common excuse(s) disclaimer here:
Missed most of Friday night
I'm still a lid on CW
Biorhythms at triple low
Bad phase of moon
