1329 QSO points X 1.5 LP multiplier. Final score will no doubt be quite different. I operated my station in Ohio remote from Tokyo. The station is pretty modest - a K3 and a dipole. The dipole is at about 30 feet on one end and 70 feet on the other and runs over my pond. My only advantage is that operating this contest remote from Japan makes it a totally daytime operation for me. I started around 8 AM my time and ended at 10 PM (Ohio sunrise) with a couple hours break in between for meals, etc., so no lost sleep. As the rate declined, I got a lot of newspaper reading in while Win-test called CQ. Speaking of Win-Test, I really like the grid square map that fills in each grid as you work it. Lots of fun to see where you are working. Conditions were excellent. The band was quiet and I think I must have worked more west coast stations than in any other 160 contest - almost forty 6 and 7 point contacts. Quite a few called me, which doesn't usually happen. I also managed to work 16 EU stations, quite a good performance for my little station. It's been a while since I worked KH6 on this band but this time KH6LC was easy to find and work. Nice job, Lloyd. I heard a loud KH6DX calling someone but he was S&P and I didn't hear him calling CQ. Lots of fun. Thanks Tree, Lew and everyone for all the work in putting on this show!
