	Had fun again this year.  More QSO's than last year but
        fewer mults for an overall lower score.  More EU this year
        but no JA, even though I was up at sunrise both mornings
        trying.   EU was hot Friday night.  Missed SD and ID.
        Missed some easy ones from here like FM.  Seemed like fewer
        Carribbean stations on this year.  Managed to hold a freq
        most of the time even with my wimpy station.

 p.s.   How do you folks get countries separated from your mults?
        NA only seems to report mults, and not break them down into

        See you next year!

I get a lot of questions as to what I use as WR6R/KH6 during the contests 
so here is a run down before the test:

160- shunt fed tower and beverage into the bush
80- Delta Loop- hope to make it a 2el element by March
40- 3el Yagi at 80', 2el Yagi at 60'
20- 5el yagi at 60, 4 el Yagi at 60
15- 5el Yagi at 60', TH7 at 40'
10- 6 el Yagi at 20'

There are 4 towers on the 3 acres with the majority of the antennas 
sticking over the side of the cliff. I have a 270 degree view over water.
Still use a generator, but that means less man made QRN.

Rigs are FT1000, FT900, TS850, 
Amps are Amp Supply NT800, Al1500

Hope to see a lot of you on six bands this upcoming phone contests!

				Aloha, Al
