Lots of fun again, as this contest usually is.  Condx were great!!
The good condx caused me to spend quite a bit more time in front 
of the radio than I had planned.  I had been reading about the 6M 
sporadic E openings to EU so I had a feeling something could 
happen on 10 - I was not disappointed!  Nothing like working EU on 
10 in summer at the sunspot minimum!!  20 never died - it was 
usually decent and often really good.  9J2BO called in on 80!!

Missed most of the afternoon hours and a three hour stretch in the
middle of the night when the lightning started - which also 
happened to coincide with one of those really good times on 20 :-( .

Thanks to all for the Qs.  See you next time!

>From the frivolous dept.....

You think about stuff like this when you operate about a mile and a
half from the neighboring zone.  Having worked a fair number of
zone 8 stations (same zone = one point) I re-opened my log, 
changing my QTH to zone 7.  The resulting score was 434,686 - a 
difference of 61K!!!  Kinda makes me want to suggest to Phil that 
we put that big tower on a barge and float the station across the 
river to MN next time!!  :-)
