Activity seemed down a bit, in part because K8MR was not able to make his
regular mobile run this year.  I had made plans to go mobile this year but 
many other things got in the way and I couldn't get ready in time, so I had 
cancel. Hope to be back next year.

Skip was long on 40 at the beginning but later I started to hear some of the
stations in the south.  I am too close to MI for 20 to be useful so I never
listened there.

My normal logging software is Win-test but of course it does not support 
US QSO parties, so I had to fire up N1MM.  The way N1MM handles serial 
is a big mystery to me.  After you have worked and logged a station, the 
serial number you gave out still shows until you type something in the call
sign column.  The problem is, there are many times when you want to work
someone but you don't know their call yet(such as when you are new on a band 
mode, or when you know you have not worked that multiplier, etc.).  In such
cases, you risk giving out the same serial number because that's what the
software shows your serial number to be.  This is a serious problem that 
against all common sense and should be corrected.
