Hi, Gang,

Well for what its worth here is my effort in cqwwcw: 61 contacts as follows:

80 -- EA8EA, P40W

40 -- 5V7A, 6Y6A, 9A1A, CI2ZP, CO2MA, EA6IB, EA7TH, F2YT, HA9BVK, HH2B,
      PY0FF, TM7XX, VO1MP, XE2L, YW1A, ZL2VS

20 -- 5V7A, 8R1K, 9Y4VU, CE3F, CI2ZP, CT8T, NP4Z, OI6YF, PJ8N, S58A, VA6JO,
      VA7A, XE2L, XO7A

15 -- 3E1DX, 4V2A, 5C8N, 6Y6A, CP6AA, D44BC, EA1FBU, EA2IA, EA3ALN, EA4ML,
EA5WU, EA6IB, EC3AIC, F6IPQ, FS5PL, G3TXF, HH2B, J6DX, L5V, LU6ETB,
NP3J, TI1C, VE7CFD, VE9DH, WH6R, XE1AVM, XK7SZ, ZM2K

10 -- 5C8N (only heard two other sigs on 10, J3, and LU, very weak)

Also got lots of QRZs, DIDIDUMDUMDIDIs and broken calls, but couldn't
complete contacts because of KW QRM, especially on 40

Operated about 9 hours. Had just put my Butternut HF6V back up Sat.
morning, after using a tuner on my downspout/raingutter for awhile. The
butternut works better. Rig IC-706 at 4.5 watts, 250 Hz cw filter, AH2
tuner on rain gutter. I live in an antenna restricted area, but decided it
was better to ask forgiveness than permission.

Had a ball! Have not operated a DX contest in about 15 years, and this is
the first time QRP.

73, Bill, N9HH
