SOAPBOX:

What a wonderful contest this was. I had planned a great strategy (at least
on paper) but things didn't work quite the way I had intended. I worked the
full two hours Monday night but then held back the rest of the week waiting
for Friday. I figured there would be more stations to work Friday night.
It didn't work out that way, however. Despite my poor showing Friday, I was
pleased to work AR, CO, SD, GA, TX, OK, NC, NM, MI, MN and CA from central
California. Although I reported my power as 1 watt, in reality I was
putting out around 750 mW. I figured it would be easier for the station on
the other end to copy. With one or two exceptions every one of my
twenty-one contacts qualified for the 1,000 miles per watt award. Now, I
have but one question. When can we do this again?
