Thanks to Bryan W5KFT for letting me operate from his station in the Sweepstakes again. The last couple of years I've really struggled in this contest, and came away feeling like I really wasn't living up to the station potential. I made my share of mistakes this year, too, but it looks like I will come away with a personal best score. This is my first time in the 300K club. Well, before the log checkers get their say, anyway :-)
I read the sad news about the passing of Ken K5KA right after finishing the contest. I used his software for my post-contest analysis. RIP OM.
