I once sent in a log for 50 QSO's in the arrl dx fone contest..I was just searching for all time new ones but I could send in a log with just a click of the mouse in the logging program. Turns out I was the only QRP fone entry in the Central Division..That plaque sure looks nice on the wall in the shack. those days are gone..now qrp fone entries have qso counts in the hundreds..sigh

Jon,
Turn it in for sure.I have actually won the QRP division in two separate QSO Parties with only 1 contact each.You just don't know how far you can move up the food chain when condx are less than optimal.

  No worries, we have a week to upload the logs after all.

I seem to have been doing the math wrong in my head, thinking I only worked 6 hours....  My best score is based starting at 2200.

Again, many thanks!

The issue is that you operated for more than six hours--you started at 2000z and ended at 0411z. That's over eight hours. You need to pick the best six-contiguous hours. You can either do the analysis yourself, or let the checker decide for you. Just upload multiple times selecting different start times: 2000z, 2200z, and 2300z. (Since you had no QSOs during the 2100z hour, that wouldn't be a good starting time.) Then do one final upload with the version that scores the best.
My guess (without doing the math) is that 2200z will be best. You only have one QSO during the 0400z hour, so that's not likely to be worth more than the QSOs you will lose for skipping the 2200z hour. And you only had five QSOs in the 2000z hour--starting at 2000z means you lose the 11 QSOs during the 0300z hour. The "catch" might be the multipliers, as I didn't look at that.
