Good going, Ray.  I put in just over 12 hours with no computer (pencil, paper, 'phones & paddle plus the K-3) and managed a couple of hundred QSOs for just over 100k points.  There was an  impressive number of DX stations participating..

  Had a blast! Operated 28 hours. HI power, but with 25-foot-high dipoles
  (felt like I was running a sprint carrying a suitcase). 

  The "Screw-Up Fairy" visited me a few times, but Murphy only ate an audio
  filter this time, so no complaints. 

  Saw MY call spotted a couple of times (this NEVER happens!) so I thought the
  software was having problems. Har! 

  Favorite thing: seeing a guy send "STOP TAIL-ENDING, YOU LID!" during a pile-up. 

  Suggestion to CQ-ing stations: Please send your TU or QSL to me before my
  call, not after it. I know you're talking to me, and all I need is the
  TU/QSL - and quickly. It helps speed me on my way. It'd be greatly
  appreciated by many, I know. Tnx!

  Mystery-Of-The-Universe-Question:  Why do I get visited by the Screw-Up
  Fairy in QSO's with people I know? Why can't all those fumble-fingered or
  brain burp embarrassing things happen when I'm in an exchange with someone I
  don't know and will no doubt never meet? Why with my friends?

  See you next year!

  73 and GL,
