	XE1MX sprint score op. XE1/AA6RX
	20   85
	40  102
	80    6
	    193 X 35 = 6755

This was a true last minute effort.  I took my computer and TS-440 over to my
buddy Marcos' house around 3pm.  We threw up a 40 MTR dipole and put coax on
his brand new TH-2 at 10 feet off the roof. Then I tried to make it work.  No
luck.  So my entry is a 100w/40MTR dipole effort.  If I had taken some
to reaquaint myself with Tree's software I think I could have broken 200 Qs.
But I really suffered in the mult dept.  Ark was the only state I can recall
hearing and not working.
	About the beam...I did a check with KM9P and the dipole was better
than the beam by a factor of 2!  What was wrong?  In the heat of the moment
I misread the coax tags and was testing not the TH-2, but a 5 el monobander
for 10 m that was lying on the roof.  Hats off the the Kenwood antenna tuner
for loading it!!!
	Look for us in the SSB Sprint.  I hope to multi-op with Marcos so he
can get a feel for this toughie of contests.

Icom IC-24AT dual band HT, Mirage B1016, 10 el yagi.
Club Affiliation: NCCC
NOTES:  This is my third VHF/UHF contest.  Not a lot of activity and
disappointing propagation for this one.  Missed some good stuff on 2M 
since my
multi-mode was in the shop, I was forced to use FM only on 2M.  Contacts 
slow and far between (I made more contacts on 1296 FM during 6 hours on 
day than I did on 2m during this whole contest) there was much more 
activity in
