I was at the W6YX shack for 30 hours of the contest but spent several hours on Saturday helping W6LD get our HyGain 105CA working again and planning some other shack maintenance. I estimate that my operating time was 25 hours but I know that there were at least a couple of 60 to 90 minute gaps with no QSOs when I was CQing and/or S&Ping. 20 hours is what the logging program says. I probably quit too early on Friday evening, leaving at 0600 when the rate dropped and I had just over 100 Qs. That low rate of 4 to 6 per hour was better than many of my daytime hours on Saturday and Sunday. I heard but did not work IA, FK8 and VP8. Several of the mults I did work were only heard briefly and very weak, not strong enough to leave any trace on the P3 waterfall. SO2R was only practical for 3 or 4 hours. There were just a couple combinations of useful beam headings between pairs of available antennas that had mutual interference low enough to hear weak stations while tuning. 73, -Mike, N7MH
