[OhQP-mail] AE8M/M results summary

This was the first time I exceeded 500 Q's (although just barely) as a
mobile in a state QSO Party.   I appreciate every QSO; finishing at 499 Q's
would have been very disappointing.  The most frequently worked stations
were K5YAA (12), K9OM (11), N4PN (9), K0RI (8), N2MM (8), KO1U (7), WX4G
(6), WA8ZBT (6), and many others less than 6.  

The bands seemed noisy throughout the entire contest, but the propagation
was sufficient to allow a fun contest and activity seemed excellent.  I
worked very few OH stations during daylight, but activity from the west on
20M was great.  After the first 5 hours of the contest, I had worked only 5
OH stations.  One highlight was working NU0Q/M in WY and then in UT.
Another highlight was working TI8/AA8HH 5 times.  

As shown by the county summary below, the QSO rate was remarkably stable
during the contest.  During the afternoon it was impossible to get anything
going on 40M SSB, but I finished with a run of 40 Q's on 40M SSB just before
midnight.  Attempting to pickup OH multipliers on 75 SSB was frustrating.
Finding a hole to call CQ was impossible (some rag chewers became upset with
me), and my mobile signal was insufficient to bust pileups.

The rig was a KX3/KXPA100 at 100W into hamsticks on 20M and 40M, and
Hustlers on 80/75.  I park to operate and the total operating time was 8
hours, 6 minutes.  The average rate was 62 Q's/hour.
