This NPOTA contact was successful. I made 11 contacts and my last
contact was CY9C who I never contacted anywhere else.

It was kind of funny listening to the recording, because at first I
thought I made only 10 contacts, and CY9C was the last one, which
would have been a perfect story, but later I realized Paul, N8HM used
his personal call *and* the AMSAT NA club call, W3ZM to contact me. So
I actually made 11 contacts. Better safe than sorry.

Thanks to all the stations who helped me make this activation successful:

01) KO4MA EL88
02) NAHM/W3ZM FM18
03) WA5KBH
04) W5CBF EM30
05) W4FS FM06
06) K5ND EM12
07) KC9ELU EM79
08) KI4RO EM88
09) N8RO EM00
10) CY9C FN97
11) +1 for N8HM as W3ZM

I took some cool pics of the Bodie Island Lighthouse I was next to and
the Milky Way Galaxy. It was a beautiful evening:
