operating time: 5 hrs

80 m: 1
40 m: 3
20 m: 15

Rig: Yaesu FT-897D w/ AT-897 tuner
Key: nice old J-38 from the swap meet
Antennas: GAP Eagle DX vertical on 20 m, twin-lead-fed dipole on 80 m & 40 m

I was happy with the new dipole.  On 40 m, it got me a KY, a PA & a MO.  And
of course the one 80 m contact, where I cheated a little by ambushing
someone after a traffic net.  Signal reports were not great, but I only ran
75 W to avoid annoying the neighbor with the touch lamp.  This time I was
able to hold a frequency for seven Q's in a row.  Think this is my best WES
so far.
