Why would you feel stress over a bunch of guys calling you?  You were 
doing fine.  I was listening when you went QRT.  Next year do the 

1.  If you work more hours of the contest, the pile will be smaller.
2.  If the pileup gets big, operate split.  Just say "UP".  Listen where 
you can hear someone.  So what if the pileup gets 20KC wide.  
3.  If you are feeling stressed by the pileup, go around and call guys 
for awhile until you feel calm again.
4.  If you are feeling streesed by the pileup, QSY.  CQ again.  
5.  Pick a frequency REAL high or REAL low.  Less guys will be likely to 
find you.  Once the pile is gone, move to the meat of the band.

I hope you dont let the actions of the few ruin it for the many.  You 
were doing FB.
