"It's about time! That was fun. I had to take out time for the Rangers and then overslept a couple of times. This is the best I have done since moving back to Texas." - K5IID

"Susan and I had an 'open house' for this contest to invite new and inexperienced contesters to participate in a major contest. We had 21 attendees of which about a third were experienced operators. I believe that many of these new folks will move on to trying contests from their home stations. We used W5CT which is the CTDXCC's club call. It turned out to be a very good contesting call." - K5NA

"My best moment by far was working A52AB Saturday night. That's a tough one from here. I heard a VU on Sunday morning, but I wasn't going to take the chance of calling him when I really couldn't hear him that well. The only other multiplier I heard and didn't work was FP. I heard him on 21170 QSYing up the band but never found him again." - KU5B (@ NX5M)

"My claimed score is well above the existing W5 low power unassisted record (1.77 meg). I have still never worked all 40 zones in this contest - I missed zone 22 this time." - N5AW

"Finally the upper bands worked well! I hope you all had as good a time as I did. I wish my rotor pointed where the antenna did!" - KE3D

"10 meters was simply amazing. I especially enjoyed the last 40 minutes, searching and pouncing up above 28.5 MHz and working one JA after another, all with great signals." - N5DO

"10 meters was wide open during daylight hours and signals were really big. I worked 10 meter DXCC in one weekend! The band was busy all the way above 29 MHz. Skip was very long and it was hardest to work close-in DX. Last year, I had 68 QSOs in a mostly dead 10 meter band, so propagation was much better." - W5GAI

"10 meters was smoking HOT!!" - N5RMS

"I did not get into the shack until 0430 UTC in reality. I had about two minutes earlier and made one QSO, but then I had to leave. Then at 0630 UTC, all the receive antennas went dead. Drats! I could not isolate the problem and I was not going to walk into the woods in the middle of the night, so I went to sleep. I spent a little more time in the chair the second night. I spent the daylight hours doing some station enhancements. The new SW, N, and S beverages seem to play well. The new 135 foot vertical finally got a good testing, so I am happy with the results of that project." - NX5M

"After receiving a certificate for last year's effort in the low power class (my amplifier was in Colorado getting fixed), I decided to try hard this year in the High Power class. I only have a Mosley TA-32 (two-element tribander) at 20 feet above ground. I did not break any records, but I had fun!" - K2UR

"This year we did a small multi-single effort. K5MR, K5OT, and I did most of the contest. WM5R came out on Sunday for some much needed relief operating. The high bands were great. Congratulations to K5GO and their huge score." - K5TR
