1 Mult= 1.0 QSO

I made a clean sweep of all the sections.  That was a first for me.

In my comments to the ARRL I noted that I hoped the ARRL would allow this type of operation every year because it encourages operation from
home and improvement of your home stations.  I noticed many new calls on FT8 that I've never seen before probably from all the 1D and 1E
stations from home. But I also noticed that many of the new operators were probably first timers on digital and had quiet a few problems, that
held down my rate.

First of all there were many who by the end of the contest STILL had not set up an ARRL Sections exchange.   Also I noticed many calls
constantly calling CQ but never making any calls.  I call them hunters but not peckers.  Also I would call stations they would answer but never
finish the contact.  And stations would call me during my CQ and after I finished the call I was in would call them and they never came back.
More than likely many of these were first time digital operators and hopefully with experience they will get better.

It looks like I operated about 24 of the 27 hours,  (+ or -).
