HF Contest tomorrow night

Looks like my timing for getting back into Sunnyvale was perfect.  This weekend is a 10 meter (28 MHz) contest from Friday evening to Sunday afternoon.  The ARRL have posted a very good article about it.  From what I've heard, this is meant as a contest to enlist technicians, since techs have voice privileges 28.300-28.500MHz SSB 200W.  Granted, I already have my general, but I think they won't send me away for it.

For those who are interested, I'm planning on using a 50' random wire from my patio through two trees, with a 30' ground in the other direction.  It's far from ideal, but its what I can use.  We'll see if I can get anything out of it.
