Did well until shortly after 9:30pm when the blower died in the amp. 
It intermittently made grinding noises all night before quitting 
altogether, but of course in the true spirit of contesting I just put 
on my headphones and ignored all that. Managed to work 42 QSO's in 19 
grids. Furthest contacts were VE3ZV EN92 and K4QI FM06. The next 
night I found the spare blower and repaired the amp. Someday will 
have to figure out this distance scoring stuff.
Thanks to all who were QRV and to the event sponsors.
