 Comments:

 This was my first UHF contest where I actually made any
QSOs.  I managed only one QSO with my own grid.  I worked
every station I heard, save two: VE3AX and N1JEZ/R.  There
just weren't many stations to hear.

It was a pleasant surprise to have some people answer my
CQs, considering my low power (30w) and small, low antennas.

 My best DX on 432 was K8DIO in EN91 at approximately 600km
and VE3TFU in EN92 at approximately 500km.
