"Wow! Ain't sunspots wunerful!!!! I set new personal records for the ARRL DX CW Contest: most total QSOs (2046), most QSOs on 15 meters (799), most QSOs on 40 meters (531), most multipliers on 15 meters (96), most multipliers on a single band in an all band entry (96), most contacts in a clock hour (120), and highest score (2,228,094). If my score isn't reduced too much in the log checking or another W5 beats me, it will be a new 5th call area low power record score." - N5AW

"There's no meters like . . . ten meters! Saturday, we had a six hour opening that was broad and brought good rate. Sunday, we only had a couple of hours open mostly to west of the Mississippi. The weather was great, with a little drizzle Friday night to quiet things down. Our little beverage helped, too. K5NZ and his friend Mark provided plenty of entertainment in addition to drinks and hot towels. :-) Mikey shoveled the Qs good too, once he got his head around N1MM. See you next year!" - K5PI (@ V31TP)

"I started to operate a really part-time operation, but got sucked in by good conditions! I did sleep eight hours each night and took off time to cook and eat. I did not CQ and all QSOs were S&P. I used a doublet fed with ladder line and a tuner. 700w amplifier, so I was half the legal limit. Best DX was a JA on 160 meters!" - K2UR

"Thanks team for a really fun weekend. Here's to K5GA and NM5M -- awarded the 'dynamic duo of destruction' award for tearing up enough equipment to keep the radio repair industry fully employed for the next month. And to the newcomer, K9CT, for traveling the the greatest distance and doing yeoman's duty on 160 meters. Here's to your new station on the rise! I certainly hope you will come back again." - NR5M

"I had some time on Sunday to run while having coffee.. I'm NOT a big CW op, but I had fun trying to copy.. Thanks all for putting up with me!" - N8NOE

"15 meters was HOT. There were very strong signals from Europe and Japan, but my small antennas could not break through some of the big pileups and some stations could not even hear me at all, so I missed several multipliers that others were able to get. It sure was a lot of fun. It reminds me of the old days when I lived on the Texas coast." - K5FP

"I don't operate too many contests using QRP, but I enjoy it whenever I do. I still marvel at how much one can do with 5 watts! There were a few magic periods when any station called came right back on one call -- and then there was Sunday afternoon on 15 meters when it was impossible to break through any of the massive pileups on three or four needed mults. Also, I've now used N1MM enough that it is starting to feel natural, although I am still learning. Thanks for all the fun!" - N5DO

"I did a part-time effort with our family's club call (N5AA). My purpose was to work a few band countries for that call and see how it played in contests. It plays well. The entire contest was done as search and pounce. No CQs were called the entire weekend. The rest of the time was spent doing some other projects at home. My goal was 1000 QSOs and a million points, both of which were accomplished." - K5NA
