OK Gang, Here are the QRP Afield results so far. These results represent
_all_ entries received A/O 8 October. I'll accept logs for another week or
so, but I'll close things out by the 17th (one month should be enough time
to submit a log. Right?

I've also included some of the comments/soapbox stuff. Fun.

Chet, AA1EX

"Late start. Wrong 12V power cord. Returned to home QTH. Torrential
rains. Stayed in driveway to make 5 QSO's. I love this hobby." Rich,
"Operated from Godek's farm, near Wallingford, CT--our usual FD QTH."
Meriden (CT) ARC, W1FD
"2 hours--had fun--that's what counts. I like the time of year, time of
day, and duration of contest. Family-friendly." Cameron, KT3A
"Real Field Day. In drippy clouds, sitting in wet grass on ski trail (40M
wide) with umbrella over rig & op. Too windy for dupe sheets. Quit early
to catch last chairlift down. Rained all the way home." Lloyd, AA1DL
"I was surprised by the number of stations participating--especially on 40
meters. There was sufficient activity to keep us going through most of the
afternoon." Paul, AA4XX
"(1:30 p.m.)--This is certainly a beautiful area and not a cloud in the sky.
 (4:30 p.m.)--Did you ever see it rain so hard??" Carl, N1CUU
"WOW - what a great gathering. Let's do it more often with maybe a winter
challenge (QRP A-Snow?)" Bob, VE2DRB
"Good thing 'field site' was close to home--forgot keyer cable, power cable
and my NE QRP #! Packed up, came home and worked a few." Randy, KA9HAO
"Antenna: Rainspout (really!) This event was a great idea. A lot more
interesting (and friendlier) than a regular contest. How about running one
in the spring too?" Craig, WB3GCK
"It was a great little contest. I was very pleased by the amount of
activity generated." John, K3WWP
"I am enthusiastic about the concept of a mini Field Day, but wish I had
heard more QRP stations. Was it poor propogation to the West Coast? Or a
limited number of participants? Russ, AA7QU
"Good contest, good scoring scheme. The 6 hour duration seemed OK to me."
Bob, KX1E
"Operated between thunderstorms from picnic table in the clouds at 3000 feet
(Look Rock State Park, Chilhowee Mountain, TN). Finally worked NE#2.
Looking forward to next time. Had a great time." Clay, N4AOX
"I went to a local State Park but due to threatening weather, I didn't start
setting up until 1600Z. Shortly after, I had to move as it started to
rain." Pete, WK8S
"I enjoyed the test, worked all New England states, and am looking forward
to next fall." Hugh, K3SS
"Glad it didn't rain. Wish I had a rig for another band, 40M didn't come
alive 'till the last hour." Walt, N1CJB
"Rain?? The sun was shining in Oquossoc, ME!." Chet, AA1EX
"I was floored by the activity. We had two stations set up--both worked
many stations. First 20M QSO was with KP4DDB/QRP!!" Fim, W1FMR
"Do I win the last place prize for club members?" Doug, KI6DS
