For a change I was able to operate the whole contest without my computer freezing up! I had a very minor problem with call-stacking (n1mm+) but most of the time it just plain worked, including the call-stacking feature! What would happen that every once in a while it wouldn't pop a station I had stacked but it would go ahead and send the serial number anyway. I am sure that I had caused this to happen by doing something unexpected. I am going to download software version 1.0.7047.0 (the version I had used), label it as "golden", and keep it in a safe place! I did more search & pouncing than I did running this year. 20 Meters was wall-to-wall with callers both Saturday and Sunday mornings and I couldn't find a spot to try calling so mostly during those times I just picked off stations, especially the multipliers, and most especially on 40 and 80M!. Toward the end of the contest on Sunday afternoon 40M was the same way. I am getting too old to be really serious about contesting anymore, but I still do have fun! Thanks for all the Q's. 73, Sam W4PK
