I logged the old fashioned way, so these are the rough numbers.

                              WX9E       CW only

1352 QSOs (un-duped)    4240 points      85 zones      35 HQ 

23 hours operating.... took the last 30 min off to nap before the
drive back to Chicago.   Misc fridge raids and bathroom trips 
account for the other 30+ min. 

Pleased with the Q total, didn't do enough mult hunting.    3.14 
points per Q average is rather disappointing.   Zero Europe on 80m thanks to
static and rain noise all night.   Highest rate... 
107 on 20m 6 hours before the contest....   wide open to UA/EU/AF.... better
than during the test!   Worked lots of good 
stuff that didn't call in.   Hope I make top ten.

Natan - The condix on 10 and 15 are due to summer Es, which, if anything,
is inversely related to the sunspot cycle.
