432 MHz Fall Sprint results for N9LB

Participation seemed really low, only three contacts with "regulars".  Guess
people were watching the debates on TV.  Too bad because conditions were
better than average and there was excellent tropo to my East ( probably over
Lake Michigan ).

The highlight of the contest was being called by VE3ZV, 459.9 miles distant,
my best DX to date for the 70cm band ( and my first 432 contact with
Canada ).

Also I put three 8-land stations are in the log that I would not be able to
work under flat propagation conditions.
