Larry, I was Single Operator, HIGH POWER, not low power as was 
reported in the summary on the internet.

K6XO/7 (+N5CT, K0FX), Utah section, Multiop, High Power

QSOs     527

Sections  72

DX         2

Claimed score:  81,326

Equipment:  FT1000, 1KW, Inverted L, and a short, low RX antenna.

The only DX that I heard was XE and JA. Not sure what Jim and Don
heard. We were on the air most of the time, sundown until sunup.
It really felt like the black hole here. Draw a line down the
middle of the continent and that is about where the curtain seemed
to be hung. Most of our QSOs were west of that line. Thanks to all
the 5s, 6s, 7s and 0s who called us, as well as anyone else. Missed 
Delaware for WAS. Heard AA1K once, very weak. Also missed VI, PR, 
MAR and PQ.

Contest started slowly on 40 with a 58 hour.  Its not the number of
Q's but the fact that everyone was weak and every contact was a 
struggle.  Heard loud signals on 160 on the second radio and decided 
to try to pick up a few quick mults.  Worked 5 guys, a typical 
frustrating 160 trip for me.  At this point 20 was dead and 40 and
160 were tough so I had no choice but to try 80.  I usually do not
try 80 before 3Z but had no choice.  I was starting to get jittery.
Found a good freq and fired up.  Things were going well, about 15
Q's in 10 minutes, when a loud, northeast station with a big signal
started up right on top of me and would not move.  I had to QSY 
muttering something about it being the same guy every year.  Once
I found a new spot, it all started coming together and the next 46
hours were unforgettable - particularly on the low bands.  Ran on 80
for the next 4.5 hours and used the second radio to pull out Q's and
mults on 40 and 20.  

QSY'd to 160 at around 6Z to try working EU.  The band was full of loud
signals and I would either get through on 1 or 2 calls or I would
never get through.  Conditions to northern EU were incredible.  I even
tried a few CQ's since conditions were so good.  I was not wildly 
successful but I did work about 10 stations, most of them new mults.

Forty stayed open to EU until 1020 and my first EU on 20 was 1121.  
Used that hour for mults.  Usually there is a much bigger gap between
40 closing and 20 opening.  15 is usually my best band so I tend to
QSY as soon as I hear some of the multi's getting answers to their
CQ's which was 1242.  Neither 15 nor 20 stayed open as long as they
did on the phone weekend and I was back on 40 at 1930 (2:30 local).
40 was so good I was angry that I had not gone there an hour earlier.

Day 2 was similar to day 1 except that 15 and 20 shutdown about an
hour earlier and the opening did not seem overly strong.  The
lowbands remained phenomenal.

Overall, it was a great weekend and a good contest year for me.  It may
be the bottom of the cycle but my two highest QSO totals occurred in 
the 1995 ARRL CW and CQWW CW.  There is evidently more to propagation
and having fun than simply sunspots.  If this is as bad as it gets,
its hard to complain.  10 may have been a total washout but working
zones 1 and 40 on 160 was a pleasant surprise. 

In comparing past results against my competitors, I have found that 
my best hours are usually very competitive but I usually have many
very poor hours.  This year I resolved to stay focused and use the
second radio as much as possible despite being tired.  It seemed to
pay off as I had 7 hours over 100 but only 2 under 20.  

AS for the ongoing sleep and food threads,  I took 2, 15 minute naps
the second night.  This doesn't make me any less tired but it seems
to relax my mind.  For food, I had 4 cans of coke, a half gallon of
orange juice, and a tube of saltless saltines.  

Happy Holidays, thanks for the contacts,  and see you in the ARRL CW.

Strung up a 260 foot inverted vee from my 40 foot tower to get on the top 
band for the first time in many years.  No room for a seperate receiving 
antenna and the ANC-4 that I ordered just prior to the contest was a 
dismal failure..  Thought a full size inverted vee and legal limit power 
would be competitive, but when I started reading the posts here...  My 
God, a 130 foot tower with 100 full size radials and 25 Beverage antennas 
in every conceivable direction!  Etc, etc, etc...  Learned some valuable 
lessons in this one.  Next year, will not bother staying up all night 
begging for contacts - could have slept from 1AM 'til sunrise without 
missing a thing!  And, I need to continue working on the rx noise 
problem, perhaps a DSP would help??
Biggest thrill was having about a half dozen Europeans answer my CQ's.  
Biggest downer was all night Sunday - not many new stations to work and 
seemed like condx dropped off drastically.  
Also been reading the thread about the window.  I too heard more W's 
calling CQ there than DX.  I tried to tell a couple of them "Window", but 
they came back with "WI?" like it was my call they couldn't quite copy??  
One Vermont station seemed to spend the entire contest in the low end of 
the window - didn't hear anyone ask him to move, maybe Vt counts as DX?
All in all, I don't think the W's hurt the effectiveness of the window
