Thanks to George, K5KG, for letting me enjoy a real station for the Sprint. That was unexpectedly brutal! As several other southeast stations noted, things were so bad the first hour that quitting was given some (slight) consideration. At the start 20 was open to the west coast, but the competition from all the east coast was difficult. Later we got a slight opening to W2, but I would call guys and get beat out by a W8. We ended up only about 100 QSOs below expectations for 20 meters. I then settled into a grind away mode. Never any super rates - I think the last hour was the best at 75. I was somewhat inspired by the thought that I may have been the only Florida station (after last September when everybody missed it); never heard or heard anybody working FL. About 0340 I had a super weak N4OX call on 40, but I simply could not copy. QSY'd back to 80 hoping Jay might figure out to follow me there. First QSO there was W4ER for the AL mult, followed by N2RM for Florida. Shortly after I finally caught VE5MX on 40 for 3 new mults in the last 16 minutes. Hope to see some of you next weekend in Orlando! 73 - Jim K8MR
