Thanks to everyone for offers/suggestions.
Have it all figured out for now.
Not hard to find a better QTH than W5 for a DX test
at this point in the cycle.

NI6T results:
565 QSO's, 1190 QSO pts, 71 sections, 4 countries, 89,250 pts

Having labored for most of both nights, I thought I had done at least 
respectably well--until I saw the East Coast results.

I found some guy in North Carolina or someplace who had about my score: 
he was on for like 5 hours.

I worked PY0FF for my first QSO. After that--other than for the KL7's, 
KH6's and JA's that Californians are expected to work--there was no DX.
WP4IIW was water-weak here and I heard nothing else from the Caribbean, 
Central or South America.

Of course, how the hell COULD I hear them, unless they had found some 
niche free of our stateside brothers camped out in the window for the 
entire contest?

Guys in the Bay Area and the east coast told me I was loud. But my rates 
went up and down like a hooker's shorts, reflecting long periods where 
there was NOTHING not previously worked.

>1000 QSO's? >40 countries? Sustained rates over 100? Was I in the same 
contest? Please, west coast little pistols: post your scores: I need 
something real to calibrate by!

Hrumph. Luxury! This time of year at VE7ZZZ we have to chip through the 
ice in the rain barrel to get at the wet stuff. By mid-January even that 
doesn't work as the whole lot is frozen solid.

Actually, I jest. Some wimp installed running water earlier in the
fall :-(
