REMARKS: Much better results this time using a setup I normally use for
portable work. Figured it usually works pretty good on the road, so I
tried it here at home instead of the ol' rainspout. It never ceases to
amaze me what you can do with five watts and 33 feet of wire!

QRM was really rough tonite. The band was wide open and really crowded. I
had to move around a lot just to find an open spot. Sorry for the moving
target, folks. :-)

As usual, Pete, NN9K, was right there to kick off the session. I had a lot
of trouble pulling pulling some callsigns out of the chaos. Good thing I
had my Internet QRP cheat sheet handy.

The perseverance award this time goes to KK6MC/5. We really had to work
for that QSO! Thanks for your patience.

As always, it was a lot of fun. I hope I get to do it again next year!

73, Craig WB3GCK
