Actually I had no intention of operating this one since I have no antenna
for 160m, but I tuned down there out of curiosity at 2 AM Sunday morning
and the contest bug bit...

I was going to get up at 6am to see if maybe W6/W7 would come in better
at sunrise, but I slept thru the alarm (why I even thought 90 minutes of
sleep was necessary is beyond me).
