About the same here for me. Started last night (0000z = 1900edst) and found 
a never before heard interference that was S9+ and never quit so I gave up 
after 7 contacts around 1800z.

Found a few things thought, 80meter dipole on 10 meters isn't very good, my 
radio needs to upgraded to one with better filtering, using a FT-840. Will 
build/buy some beams for 10 meters. Also a voice caller would have been nice 
but my computer with N1MM died on me and new laptop doesn't arrive till 
12/25/2005. .

Se y'all next contest...
