This was going to be a great contest from out West, until 1800z (11 a.m. 
Saturday local) when a massive CME arrived and killed the fun. It was all 
downhill from there, getting progressively worse. 

I intended to stay at the radio to the very end, but there just wasn't much to
work after 1000z so I skipped the final two hours with the A-index above 30 and
still soaring (it was 54 when I got up Sunday morning, so I probably didn't miss

Still, the first part of the contest produced enough on 15M to vault me well
beyond last year's score, which was my only real goal. Far more mults than ever
before, thanks to European HQ stations on 15M. 

No Europe on 40M
from here, with the Aurora so strong (maxed out at Au=10). Talk about a brick

Mults weren't nearly as plentiful on 40M this year without Europe workable (but
thanks to the ZL and VK lads for the zones -- conditions were pretty good to the
South Pacific).

Didn't find much on 10M -- open to the southeast and South America, but no rate
and few mults worked.

Thanks to everyone for all the fun while it lasted.
