    Comments:

    What a great contest we had. Kinda weird that it all worked given that I
    finalized the installation of my 80m antenna only hours before the start. Seems
    Murphy got shied away by the rain.

    Conditions were good, with 40m being the money band. It also turns out that a
    contest is a lot more fun when you're the "DX" :).

    One thing to note, is that many ops apparently failed to read and _understand_
    the rules to know that NM in lieu of a DOK for non DARC members is a valid
    exchange. I'm wondering how many simply didn't believe it and did not log the
    QSO.

    All in all a successful weekend if I ignore the fact that I started two hours to
    late on Sunday at 7 am local because my alarm was set to weekdays only. Clearly
    operator or 0X1DI0T error.

    A certainly pleasant surprise were the conditions on 15m on Sunday afternoon and
    the highlight of the whole event, CR3W booming in loud on 10m for a brief
    opening.

    Thanks for all the great QSOs and cu in the next one.

    Rig: TS-480SAT (not a contest rig)
    Ant: AV-640S vertical, 80m inverted-L
