Comments from George K5TR:

Another fine CQ WW SSB contest. Last year we did M/S with three OPs and had a good time - this year N5TR could not join us so WM5R and I decided to give it a go with just two. It worked out pretty well and both of us even got some sleep. I had the audio hooked up to the two stations in such a way that we could do some SO2R type operating in the hours when there was only one op awake. The low bands were better for us last year but we still did well on the low bands this time. The high bands were better for us and we were doing better score wise than last year until the poor conditions on Sunday set in.

No real changes to the hardware from last year.

Thanks for all the contacts and all the fun.
