This was my 1st contest at the new QTH. Condx were flat, no enhancement. 
Had a mishap about an hour into it, when power went to zero, had to shut 
Luckily it turned out to be just a bad solder connection, only cost me a 
half hour. 
Worked 49 Q's 15 grids in 3.5 hrs of sprinting. 
Futhest NE FN43 and 44, SW to FM18 (WA1T/4) and FM08. 
Not bad for just a small 5 el yagi on a 35 foot telescoping mast and 350W. 
Hope to be on 432 in a few weeks with a similar small setup.
