Very limited time to operate this weekend as my wife was flying out of state to visit family. I wanted to spend as much time with her as I could since she would be gone for a few weeks. I did not want her to think my operating was more important than spending quality time with her. The points I scored with her where much higher than I could ever score in this contest since I am her number one multiplier (at least at income tax time). I had two small windows of opportunity and those were Saturday for about 7 hours and Sunday for about 4.5 hours. I took advantage of her commitments those days to get on that radio. I stuck to 20 meters as the band was in awesome shape. I was surprised at the number of stations I had calling me and glad to see so many patient operators. I only had a total of 5 dupes and they were not too far apart in time, so not sure why. Band was jam packed and I worked lots of new stations for the first time. This is by far in the top two of my most favorite of contests. I missed DC, NWT, LB, NU and YT. Thanks for the contacts and sorry to those I missed. 73, Phil KL8DX Denali National Park, AK
