"It was a struggle to break one million points this year! I worked only one European and one JA on 10 meters. With everyone crowded onto 15 meters, it was impossible to run Europe through the east coast wall with low power from Texas. However, with all the S&P time and the low bands in good shape, I ended up with a higher multiplier total than last year. QSOs were down by about 12%." - N5AW

"We tried a M/2 this year, after a pretty successful M/S last year. However, we really missed having a good 10 meter band this year, and we had trouble keeping the second station very busy. This year, the effort actually ended up with fewer multipliers than last year's M/S, but with more QSOs. That was mainly due to being down about 50 mults on 10 meters. The operating crew did a good job, while I tried to stay out of their way most of the time. My own SSB abilities are pretty low-grade. Everyone had fun doing the contest, and I think the operating crew did pretty well from down here on the Texas prairie." - K5NA

"I just was not feeling it this contest. I never got into a groove during the whole time. My aggression level was way down. I guess since 10 meters was bye bye, EVERYONE was on 15 meters, and it was hard to find a spot to run. I did not feel aggressive and therefore most likely did not jump into a spot that I normally would have." - KC5YKX (@ N5TW)
