That was Jenny, age 10, and a member of NCCC.  After placing top 10 (5?) for
a couple of years in NR, she decided to upgrade and move on to bigger and
better things.  Her motivation for hanging in there for this contest was that
she wanted to beat her old elmer, Duane, W6REC.  Now who says we can't
attract any new blood???

                      to 6:00am each night

  A LOT of time was spent CQ'ing endlessly.  Totaly uneventfull
  Saturday night and most of Sunday.  Good thing Greg has old
  copies of NCJ on file!  If it wasn't for the openings to CA,
  FL, and CO I would of had about 75 q's.  KY1H and K1IU were 
  the two big signals here in Indiana.

  Good thing for W9OEH's CQ along side mine or I might of gone
  Thanks go out to Greg/KO9Y for the use of his station.

Yep, my best hour - saw the NA "rate meter" hit 140 at one point.  Weird, eh?
I shut my rig down at about 22:30 also and was on the way out the front 
door with Juli to go for pizza (needed to get more practice in pizza 
buying), then decided to give one last listen.  Heard a few weak ones, 
gave my apologies to XYL and jumped back in.  Wow!!

Much patience shown by CW ops with weak signals!  No solid Es until 35 minutes
before the end of the contest.  All propagation modes save aurora evident,
but none very good.

Boy, was 10M DEAD!  I really wasn't planning on working the contest, but 
some other plans fell through and I put in about 12 Hours for the contest. 
 Could have been watching some games instead!

Anyways, here's an unverified summary.  I think it's right.  I'll post a 
correction if need be.

Event: 1995 ARRL 10M Contest
Call:  KD6DAE
QTH: Alhambra, CA

     SSB  CW
QSO's:     44  24
Points@:  2     4
      88  +  96 = 184 * 9 Mults = 1,656 Total

  Meeting a lot of local contesters.
  Making 2 DX contacts to LU land (and 4 pseudo-DX contacts to MT and NC).
  Looking forward to the next Contest (NAQP)

  Actually saying "Is anybody out there" for a CQ.
  Miserable propagation conditions. (Although the K index was at 0)

I really need to get a better antenna system.  My R5 just doesn't cut it 
when prop. is this bad.  I don't feel so alone though...Another local was 
also struggling with an R7.  I asked a friend to borrow his 3-el 10M beam, 
but that fell through (that's the reason I wasn't planning to do the 
contest). Oh well.  $$$ permitting, this will change...
