I have to say the same thing. I managed 200+ contacts and 50,000 points. I stayed in S&P mode and having the panadapter is just amazing. I regularly marched up and down the band using both N1MM and my own notes to void signals I'd worked before.
When things got message as did a couple times with big signals right on top of each other I expanded the display so I could see both sigs and used filters to work the one I wanted.
For fun I connected up a standard display radio and tuned around and I found it hard to figure out what I wanted to do. I guess I've become addicted to the pan adapter!
