> Conditions were fairly good. I think I shortened the exchange as much as I could
> to maximize the listening to transmit ratio but boy some of these folks call you
> back with almost a minute and half exchange...it's a contest gang.
> Getting just a hair under 60 Qs per hour for the entire contest was satisfying
> and I NEVER left the chair during the ENTIRE 10 straight hours. I decided to
> sit it out in a single run ("Let's Get This Over With!") and as a
> general plan, it worked fairly well.
> Still missed too many states for even one mult but holding the rate up was more
> important in the scoring effort.
> About once every 2-3 years, I work a friend of mine, who was an engineer for
> the State Division of Dams, on 10m SSB from his car in some contest but during
> the tail of the contest out he pops from the mud on 40m with his 50w/no-antenna
> at-home signal - that was priceless Jim.
