The Contest Dinner was good the company was good and I didn't win any 
door prizes.

I did spend a lot of time looking at the new Yaesu FT-920.  Couldn't 
really evaulate its performance but I did notice one thing.  The main
tuning knob seemed to have a lot of "wobble" and the front panel "flexed" 
in and out when the dial was turned.  As a perpetual S&P type this gave
me some concern for the radio's durability in a contesters set-up.

The new Amp from Yaesu, the FT-1000, a full gallon output seemed 
impressive with it's matching power supply.  The styling is so nice that 
the XYL even liked it and said I could get it and the FT-1000MP.  

Hmmm, maybe there's a new rig in my future but I gotta finish rebuilding 
the shack.

The WX was outstanding all 3 days as it always is whenever I manage to 
get to Dayton.

P.S.  Arrived late for Dinner and sat with a great group of guys I hadn't 
met before.  It was a real pleasure.
