Finished with 247 x 46, with the following breakdown:

20 - 121 Qs
40 - 78 Qs
75 - 48 Qs

I'm coming to the conclusion that my 20m performance stinks - apparently the 
13 element Collins log periodic doesn't quite cut it on 20m with only about 6 
dB gain.  Speaking of breakdowns, my venerable 2K-2 began powering down 
intermittently after 1 hour into the contest.  A quick smack on the side 
usually brought it to life again.  Good thing 3-400Z'z are quick heating!
Thanks for  the Qs - 73, Kevin NC6U
