Summary: 
Total:  QSOs = 1074  State/Prov = 58  Countries = 49  
Total Score = 330,998 Club: Soapbox: Everything worked, I was able to
switch my days and nites, no TVI and
the band was quiet. You know it will
be fun when your first contact is
North Dakota (and then you work 4 each
ND, SD and Wy). The 25 year old 80
meter freestanding vertical still
performs well with a repaired radial
field. It is a bit awkward having to
adjust the tuner every 10 kc but
digital bargraph wattmeters are great
for that. I just returned from Boston
and understand why people can't work
on their antennas due to unbelievable
amounts of snow and ice... Strange
prop to southern EU on Saturday night
with many 599 signals CQing in my face
with no response. I agree with the
comments on new rigs with great
selectivity causing problems.
