I have generated a summary of all the responses that I have received.  Due to
the length of the summary (22.5k), I'm not going to post it directly to the
reflector, but I will be more than happy to email it to any and all interested
individuals.  Thanks to all who responded!  Your comments and advice are greatly

    Final Score = 61299 points.

I worked about 7.5 hours of the contest; outside chores dominate
my free time this time of year.  It didn't help to have such
glorious weather this weekend!  High points: working HL9DC an hour
before the end of the contest for zone 44 (he was calling CQ without 
getting much response, had everyone already worked him?).  Low 
point: having my logging program crash mid-way in a nice run and then
the unspeakable happened, I lost my whole log!  Fortunately, I had
done a manual backup about 75 QSO's earlier.  For that reason, I
apologize for all of the dupes I may have generated from those lost
QSO's.  It was my first time for this contest but will not be my
last - I had a ball!

Rigs: TecTec Corsair II and L4-B
Antennas: 20-meter triplex wire beam and 40-meter dipole; both up
          about 40 - 45 feet.
tnx for all the contacts - John, W3GOI

This is the list that will be published in the next NCJ. I'll still take
additions but they probaboy won't be published in this issue. But, if
there are any errors here let me know ASAP and I'll try to get them
fixed before publication.

Thanks, Larry, K3TLX

Well, IARU is what got me interested in contesting originally, so I
convinced N9DHN to celebrate with me at KX8D and see exactly how much more
effective a beam antenna is than our measly verticals.

To say that we worked countries on one call that we have never even heard
before is simply a gross understatement of the fun that was had.  We had so
greatly underestimated what was possible, that we were continually changing
our goals.

Now I have to figure out a way to explain to the wife why I need to put up
one of those ugly "TV" towers when we already have cable. ;^)  Actually, I
probably need to buy some land and build a house first -- who says we are

Wow !  What a great contest !  FB propagation and activity.  Thanks to everyone
who worked me.  It was really hard to believe that this is the bottom of the
sunspot cycle - widespread Sporadic-E really saved the day.  No equipment
problems or local thunderstorms, either.

10 meters - The EU opening didn't make it this far west - I listened and
listened.  A pipeline to W8 from here.  A few SA and ZL2AGY were the only DX.
 Many CQ's towards JA and moved multipliers from 15 with nil results (VE6 being
the only exception).

15 meters - A pleasant surprise. The band never really opened for DX, but it
never totally closed, either.  Except for HG95HQ when the band peaked, the DX
stations seldom moved the S-meter, but I could work every station I could hear.
No DX runs, but worked every mult that I heard.  The only frustration was being
unable to break through the inaudible EU pileup to work A92Q (did work the C47
later for the mult, however).  Amazed to work SP0HQ around 0600Z, and RA0FU at
0921Z (0321 local time).  Moving mults from 20 was at least 90% successful.

20 meters - Just like the Energizer bunny, 20 just kept going-and-going.  A
seemingly endless number of EU, almost the entire 24 hours.  It's openings like
this that make you wish for a 4-stack, instead of a 2-stack, to work the next
layer of weak EU.  FB JA condx the last few hours of the contest kept me on 20,
instead of 40.

40 meters - Started the contest here with JA, VK, and ZL, but that faded
quickly, as local sunrise is 1140Z.  The big gun EU stations were loud and
easily workable an hour before sunset, but couldn't hear very many of the 2nd
tier EU stations that the east coast was running.  Strange propagation around
0430Z-0500Z - the only EU heard were OH, SM, LA and TF, who were all well into
daylight.  JA run disappointing - they were all up on 20.

80 meters - QRN !  Too bad I didn't have my winter beverages (have to take them
down for farming activities).  Sorry to all those who called that I couldn't
pull through.  Did my usual thing - work USA and VE zones during the night,
then grab JA and Pacific at sunrise (+- 10 minutes) when the band quiets down
and peaks.  Where were all the VE6's I worked on 20 and 40 ?

160 - QRN, but at least I didn't miss Zone 8 (yes, it has happened in the past
!).  Lack of beverages cost me an XJ7RAC QSO, amongst others.

Really love this contest when the K-index is low. When there are no sunspots,
 40, 20 and 15 meter DX propagation is much better than the fall/winter
