Heard Jim, K9JWV, around 0216z with good sigs, but couldn't get his

Caught Jim, K9YC, calling CQ low in the band, gave it a try and made an
easy QSO.  Jim/YC's QRP sigs have been getting better the last few
contests compared to prior years as we are heading down the backside of
the cycle.  Cpngrats on working CT!

So far worked maybe a couple dozen or more west of the Rockies, KV4FZ,
NP2X, KH6ZM, and GW3YDX with the '28 MOPA; hand still in good shape
despite many CQs on the bug.
