Ummmmmm, was 80 meters noisy for everyone else Saturday Nite?  We had
an S-9 +5 hash level.  Not local power stuff, but general multi-variate
gaussian type crap.  That ruined our dream of all nite cw.

Needed 3 hands to operate.  1 for tuning knob, 1 for keyer, 1 to scratch
legs into bloody pulp to relieve mosquito bite itching.

No 10 meters, some 15 meters, about 50-50 phone and cw.  Total about 670
q's.  yuchh!  bonus for packet and message orig. Big deal.

Alan, you did the right thing with the 20 mtr ant.  Now where can I find
a used 204BA for CQP????
