"I took my first whack at a single op CW low power contest from home this weekend. Nothing stellar, but it was fun. I fairly quickly got to a place where finding new stations was difficult. My droopy little dipole was getting out pretty well. Though I had a few short bursts where I could run, I spent most of the contest S&P." - W5ZL

"The HF bands were in pretty rugged shape, but 20 meters stayed open all night to some extent. We experienced some good 20 meter CW runs, and 40 meters was great the last three hours to Asia. We ran around 35 JAs, and worked HL, DU, VR2, KH0, and the B4HQ station in Nanjing, China. After the contest, JA1NUT told me he didn't realize we were low power and not using the yagi. Wow! I'm used to 1.5 KW and large antennas, and I have to say this was not all that much different from the "feeling" of a regular contest. We got nearly all the stations we called, and CQed as much as we could." - N3BB

"I got on for a couple hours Saturday afternoon and evening. I had to string up some dipoles and a G5RV before I could get on and operate due to deed restrictions. My wife's new touch lamps had a GREAT TIME! Low-Med-High-Off.. Low-Med-High-Off.. Low-Med-High-Off... My wife finally unplugged them." - KI5DR

"I can't remember the last time I've operated an HF phone contest and not had an episode of attempted jamming, but this was by far the worst I've experienced in several years." - WM5R (@ W5KFT)

"I had limited time to operate (it was too nice outside!) so I really worked on my SO2R skills, which didn't seem to improve much! Congratulations to all that stuck out the somewhat rough conditions, though I must say 20 meters was hopping when I went to bed at midnight." - K5NZ
