Here is the contest summary from N4OGW/9, a fellow club member
here in Chambana (Urbana-Champaign). He is one of those contester types,
but I'm glad that he tried this contest. Of course, he totally
smoked me in the contest. :-)

I diddled around in the QRP contest for a while on Saturday
afternoon/evening. (Yes the Drake will go down to 5 watts!) Worked a total
of 107 qso's, 1 on 80m, 84 on 40m, and 22 on 20m...39 total
multipliers. The bands really stunk (not just from a qrp point of
view)...20m barely opened at all, and the static on 80 sounded like summer
time. Best DX on 20 was VE9 (New Brunswick), on 40 Nicaragua, and on 80m
Pennsylvania (Whoopee!)...things were pretty slow, so I used the auto-CQ
feature and read a book until someone answered me.
