"This is the first time I've operated the CQ WPX phone contest as an all-band single-operator. I've not done a lot of single-operator DX contests aside from the IARU HF World Championships in the summer, and of course the conditions are quite different then. A lot of the time, I felt like I was pretty clueless, and was saved mostly by the fact that for most of the contest, there was only one open band to choose from." - WM5R (@ W5KFT)

"A multi-operator, two-transmitter effort was the plan until about 2000 UTC Friday, when operator changes at the last minute forced me to just cancel. I decided to get on 15 meters and put in a little effort....but not much. The first few hours on 15 meters were not bad at all despite the rates being down. I spent a few hours on Saturday afternoon, but the band was all but gone at sunset. I got back on Sunday at 1515 UTC, made my 300th QSO at 1542 UTC, turned everything off and disconnected it." - NX5M

"This weekend was mostly a S&P effort with NQ5D who wanted to get his feet wet in contesting. I let him work the open band S&Ping and I would tune for mults here and there, but he did most of the work as I was outside doing other things most of the time. I think he is hooked. I even had him doing a little running on 40 meters Saturday evening. Our plan was to operate just Friday and Saturday, but he wanted to come back Sunday, too! It seemed like there was lots of activity. It was too bad that 15 meters never opened much here." - K5NZ
