"Thanks to George K5TR for letting me operate his station this weekend. Conditions were much improved over my last effort in the SOSB/15 category in 2009. My personal goal for the weekend was to do better than the NR5M M/M team's 15 meter totals from the CW DX contest two weekends ago. I was pretty sure I could do better than their QSO total, but I wasn't sure about the multiplier total. As it turns out, I matched their multiplier total in the final hour of the contest." - WM5R (@ K5TR)

I operated QRP in this contest last year and ended up with 408 QSOs and 156 multipliers in 24 hours. This year, I decided to make a conscious effort to work more hours with a target of 500 QSOs and 200 multipliers and ended up very close to my goals. The high point was the return of 10 meters. I ended up almost working WAC on 10 meters, but never heard any JAs or other Asians." - N5DO

"The high bands certainly were better this weekend than for the CW contest two weeks ago. 160 meters was almost unusable here due to static crashes and line noise. 80 meters and 40 meters were OK, but not as good as they were two weeks ago. I actually had a brief opening to Europe on 10 meters on Sunday with a mini-run of 19 stations, mostly G's. These were the most contacts I've made on 10 meters since the 2003 contest, and a new personal record for contacts and multipliers on both 15 meters and 40 meters in this contest." - N5AW

"This was a part time effort. The conditions to me seemed a bit below the CW weekend. I saw lots of spots for African stations but unlike the CW weekend, I could only hear very few. 10 meters was fun again. Late Sunday afternoon, an EI was just booming in there. 15 meters was the go-to band. 20 meters just never seemed to work for me this time. On to the next contest!!!!!!" - K5IID

"I decided to do this Assisted so I could get my 10 meter DXCC totals up. Looks like I added quite a few new ones (remember I was licenced toward the end of cycle 23)." - KU5B (@ NX5M)

"Howdy, Well I decided to continue honing my DX pileup skills, by all search and pounce. When I saw my score on Sunday, it looked like I was doing pretty good, so I went to the high end of the 15 meter band and tried a CQ. One hour latter, I had added 100 QSOs and 2 multipliers to the log. Unfortunately all of Europe was in darkness when I had this 'brain storm', so the run fizzled out. Next contest I will run!" - K2UR

"In a mostly search and pounce operation, I had lots of fun seeing which band was open where. It was interesting working Europe on 40 meters during the last hour, and also working the Pacific on 10 meters and 15 meters during the same time period." - NA5TR

"I was just going to fool around making a few QSOs for our family's club call. But a headset that hurt my ears and a new computer arriving via FedEx on Saturday caused me to become very distracted from the contest." - K5NA

"Too much was going on this time, so my participation was limited. I don't know what happened to my northeast Beverage antenna... suddenly, signals dropped and some crazy noise was present every 10 kHz. that will be one of the few things left to fix before the CQ World Wide WPX Phone Contest later this month." - NX5M
