 178 QSO's.  40M:  Dipole @ 50'
             80M:  Elevated sloping GP made of wire supported by pine 
             Rig:  Ten Tec Omni-6 @ 90w

Felt nice to stay close or beat some of the guys using bigger hardware 
and more power.  TRLog worked great... just took some time to get used to 

Why can't everyone understand the sprint exchange format?

When it's going to be YOUR FREQUENCY:  Send YOUR CALL LAST.
When it's NOT your frequency:  Send your call after his call!

I QRM'ed alot of guys early because they sent their callsigns last in the 
exchange when it wasn't their frequency.  I learned who they were by hour 

GREAT CONTEST.  My XYL loved it too!

   This is a great format.No shortage of people to
work! First contest with my new OMNI VI, it has
worked and sounded just fine the last month. Had to
leave 40M early- the 4 square is just too directional
and don't have an inv-v to "co-feed", like my
4 square/inv-v combo on 80.
   Sorry I can't submit my log, but we don't have
Internet yet here in this part of the country, just
this MCI MAIL stuff. Doubt I could afford to send
the log via MCI MAIL !!!

40m: 59
80m: 76
total: 135

FT-1000 with Keyer and paper log
40m: 2 el Cushcraft at 85 ft
80m: 3 el sloper array

My first Sprint-style contest! Spent 0200-0213 just listening to figure 
out how this contest worked, then joined the fun. Was kinda confusing at 
first (hey, you took my run freq!) but think I got the hang of it.
Was very strange to have the antenna pointing west, use a keyer and log 
on paper. (But thank you G4BUO for the one QSO that made me think I was 
in a DX test). Think my subconscious was gnawing at me to hit the F1 
key... The 1 hour and 47 mins really flew by... Now to type the log into 
the computer - whatta pain!
