"I had no intention of even operating this contest, but I heard Joe Fisher K5EJL calling CQ on 10 meters on Saturday afternoon (2250 UTC,) and I couldn't resist giving him number '001' with the RF power all the way down. After catching up on things for a few minutes with Joe, I thought I'd see who else could hear me at < 5 watts. My next QSO was with WP3R. After that I was hooked." - W5ZL

"I made 91 more QSOs on Sunday this year than I did last year, and at times I was over 100 QSOs ahead of last year's pace. I feel really good about that. This is a personal best score for me." - WM5R (@ W5KFT)

"Wow, what a different kind of contest it is with five watts. I managed to get some good runs on 15 meters and had a couple of semi-decent runs on 20 meters. 10 meters tried to open, but just could not get there. 40 meters was a busy place with nowhere to run for a QRP station. 80 meters was getting blasted with static crashes, and even the Beverages where noisy. I spent my time 50/50 on run and S&P." - KC5YKX (@ N5TW)

"Thanks to all for taking the time to work my QRP signal." - N5XJ

"We had originally not planned to have a phone Sweepstakes entry from the station this year. The usual SSB operators were not available. But when Sharon, K5YA's XYL, mentioned to Susan K5DU that she was interested in getting a ham ticket and also interested in contesting, Susan invited Dennis and Sharon over to the K5NA station for the weekend and to do the phone Sweepstakes. We worried that Sharon might suffer burnout from overexposure to contesting. But as they were leaving Sunday afternoon, I heard her ask Dennis, 'How about operating the 10 Meter Contest? You could do CW, and I would do phone." I think she is hooked now on ham radio and contesting. It was a great weekend watching this unfold." - K5NA
