Comments:

Part time effort.  Great fun.

Missed best times for DX on first night.  Hit the jackpot on second night with

140 Europeans between 0600 and 0815z.  That really helped the multiplier.

Local line noise most of the weekend. Some combination of power line buzz and electronic power supply growl. When it was gone, I could hear well.  When it was on, the weak guys had to get lucky with QSB.  I know there were a number of stations that called that I just couldn’t hear.
