Comments:

Friday night I had an excellent S&P first hour.  After that I tried to get
some runs going, but no luck.  So, it was S&P the rest of the night.

Saturday, things turned around and I had some good results, with N1MM software
reporting max rate of 1 min = 240/HR and 10 min = 170/HR.  One hour rates,
however, were still around 50-60/HR and limited to peak times.

Overall, I enjoyed the contest, but it was not as productive as 2004 when I had
more zones (39) and a few more Q's.  Still, 40-meters remains my favorite band.

Highlights:  Having 7Q7BP answer my CQ.  Working VK9AA first call, in a big
pile, along a propagation path which was being ignored by others.
