This was a blast! I had set as goal to beat the current SM record taken by
SM3SGP as SK3W in 2000. I was hoping for 10 meg if everything went OK and this
went over my expectations by far. The old record was at 8.3 meg and I think
this result should even pass logcheck. Propagations were outstanding except the
last two hours, which suffered a bit from some small aurora.

I tried SO2R with two computers for the first time (of course interlocked) and
it worked like a charm. I need to do some minor fixes in the firmware of my
SO2R box, but otherwise it went very smoothly. 316 qsos on the 2nd radio, I
mainly tried to focus on 3/6 ptsers and mults.

It was also fun to once in a while run into OH8X and OH10X and compare how I
was doing compared to them. It will be very interesting to see the results.

Next one will be WPX CW as multi-op!
