Another observation, or perhaps tips, to be made here.  I brought my
daughter to field day last year, and she was annoyed that she had some
problem getting involved in the activity.  So, I woke her up at 5AM and
told her to get out there and offer to relieve them.  When I finally got
up several hours later she was busily working away.  Now, she just got
her licence and worked the VHF contest yesterday.  Time will tell.

Sorry about the first message. Dunno how it got fired out of here. Again, I 
expect to have more definite scores by the end of the week, possibly including 
breakdowns per band.

Station (+multiops)         Score        Bands         Section

W3XO/5 (+K5LLL, KB5NFN)     ~80K         ABCD9E        STX

W5KFT (+WB5VZL)             ~181K        ABDE ?        STX
(I'm sure George will post their true score)

KB5IUA                      ~93K         ABCDE         STX

W5SXD                       ~20K         ABD9E         STX

KC5BQS                      ~600         ABD9E         STX
(Probably wins section on 902MHz)

Breakdown on 902MHz for STX:
Station                 QSOs         Grids
KC5BQS                   4             3
W3XO/5                   3             2
W5SXD                    1             1

Yep, those are *ALL* of the stations with 902 south of Dallas. And people 
wonder we don't place very high in the scores. Look at the density of ops. 
[soapbox mode OFF]

Had a great time out at W3XO. 6m started off with a bang, 100+/hour rate for 
the first hour. AA5C and WB5LUA appreciated the new grid on 902. Yep, was a 
pretty good contest overall.
