"I can honestly say that the sleep breaks were just perfect, and that I got about the best that is possible from this station and this operator for central Texas." - N3BB

"There were lots of stateside QSOs, and some loud North American and South American DX, but there was very little other DX and what I did hear was weak with QSB. In general, a pretty good weekend from Texas during this part of the solar cycle." - K5NA

"I enjoyed a few hours of contesting this weekend. I operated alone with packet assistance, a tribander and 100 watts. It was good to hear familiar callsigns and brush up my CW." - AF5Z

"Things didn't go as planned. I was knocked off of 40 meters on Saturday night by storms: six hours with zero QSOs, starting at local midnight Saturday. I missed all those score-building 6-point DX contacts on the low bands, and had to work like a dog all day Sunday on 1-pointers. On Sunday, I worked thirteen hours with no time off, and still didn't get my allowed 36 hours." - K5YA

"A lack of operators left stations unmanned, so a casual approach was the only way to go." - NX5M

"The storms on Saturday night didn't bother me too much. The QRN went up quite a bit, but nothing was close enough to pull the plug. It's a rare WPX-CW in this part of the country that isn't impacted by the weather!" - K5OT
