Shack is fully dismantled for remodeling the house. Wanted to participate in
Sprint, so extended some feedlines into the garage.  No amp, so set 
up Low Power
FT5000 and a folding chair, in the 101-degree heat.  PC logging ok, 
but no other
automatic-anything-else, or conveniences like selecting different antennas
within a band.  Of course, typical K6NA scramble and late start; first QSO
logged at 0051z - duh.  Sorry for the clunky exchanges at first, hadn't checked
my function-key file - another duh.  New respect for the LP and QRP guys who
slug it out in Sprint:  My CQs were mostly lost in the QRM.  Settled mostly on
S&P in order to work couplets on a channel, but lost out during many of the
jump-balls. Band conditions?  Very well described by many others; no need to
repeat here.  73, Glen K6NA
