First time doing this one.  We need to do this more often!
I screwed up the first 45 minutes and sent the state I just 
received in addition to the name, thought I'd keep you guys on 
your toes!  Everything was sent by hand and logged on paper.

40m      60Qs  
80m      55Qs
115 total     with a couple low dipoles strung in trees at 30'

L A W D   ones:   K5GO, N4OGW, N2IC, KM9P, KM0L, K0EJ, Gator 
and there was a KR something or other that was in there 
occassionally also.

Odd names: Blaze, Lazer, Radman, Eram, Ace..... and what the 
hell is a FUQUAY and a BAGWON? 

Lost about 20 minutes due to phone calls and a bathroom 
break...  the pepto bismol didn't work in time.   :-)

Also, I have an older Logikey keyer and lost the manual.  Can someone either
mail me a copy or email the embedded functions to me?  I'll pay for the
postage and copying costs, plus I'll buy you a beer at Dayton!

And finally, all Society of Midwest Contesters that did not get
my direct mailing who want to be on a team for the NAQPs, 
drop me a note.   For that matter, I'll make a few teams for 
anyone anywhere.  Let me know how serious you'll be and what 
mode(s) you'll be on for. 

Oh yeah,     CONTEST    :-)
