Mike N0BSH isn't on Internet yet, but since he had such a nice score, I
thought I'd share it with you all.  

Mike operated CW Sprint from W9UP near La Crosse, WI - his first Sprint in
about 2 years.  He hand-logged and hand-keyed (no memories!) the whole
contest.  H used one rig, an IC-751, and a 3-1000 homebrew amp at 1.5kw. 
Antennas & score breakdowns are:

20m   73     Tri-bander @ 135ft
40m  102     5/8 wave wire vertical hanging off tower
80m   95     160 meter loop hanging off tower, tuned up to 80m
     270  x  41 mults  =  11,070

Mike thought about giving his name as NOT SCOTT, but thought it might hurt
his rate! :-)  Guess I've been operating out at W9UP a little more than I
thought.  Mike (not scott!) will probably be active from W9UP for SSB Sprint
