Lots of trouble this time. The PC locked up on the very first QSO when it 
didn't like the QSO with NP2X, costing me much of the first ten minutes. 
Loads of QRN on 40, plus FOC on the low end, RTTY QRM as low as 7035. Talk 
about compression! (Note: N6TR had a booming signal here the entire contest, 
on both 40 and 20.) (Note 2: why can't the RTTY stations move back up on 40? 
The band was clear above 7080.)

I am pretty disappointed with my showing this time around. I am going to 
string up some sort of wet noodle for 80 in the Sept Sprint and look to get 
back in the game. I do better in September anyway...
