I wasn't going to post our results to the reflector, as only 4 of our 7 ops are SECC members, but at your request, I'm glad to share our meager M/2 results.  I just posted our results to 3830 yesterday afternoon from the San Jose airport while we waited in the gate for our flight back to Atlanta.  And I've still got to update my Country file so TO8Z will score properly and give credit for that mult.  But, as always, it was a great time with our friends in Costa Rica, with some good runs, and some challenges too.  As always the food and friendships make the trip very worthwhile for us, plus bringing some good coffee back is a nice bonus.

This was the first time we've had an effective receive antenna, thanks to Hal's SEDXC presentation.  I've now built one for the house, and a more portable version we took south.  For our first time ever in TI, we were able to hear Europeans on 160m, so we logged many Q's and mults we would have missed otherwise.  Thanks much Hal.

I was glad to work or see many familiar SECC calls in our log.  Thanks to all for the Q's.  I know we got Brian at K4SSU on 5 bands, but missed him on 10m.  All of our 10m Q's were at our latitude or south with no US QSO's.  We are certainly all looking for better conditions.  As has been stated many places, 20m was a Zoo.
