"This was quite an interesting contest adventure, complete with lots of activity, a solar hiccup, and a nice JA run or two. Fortunately, I didn't have the equipment problems or weather delays that George K5TR experienced during the WPX SSB a couple of months ago. I wouldn't have minded a bit of rain, however." - K5OT

"Conditions didn't seem great but still moved 50% above last year's score. I had some nice hours on 40 meters to generate good points. It was lots of fun, but I still couldn't stay awake for 36 hours." - W5ASP

"This is my first serious all band entry in WPX. CQWW and ARRL DX are my favorites and in the interest of family harmony I limit my all-out, full-weekend efforts to those four contests. However, the WRTC qualifying point value for WPX is higher than ARRL DX, so I decided to go for it this year (though me qualifying for WRTC from the same call area as N2IC and K5GO/N5DX is dreaming)." - N5AW

"It was probably a bit foolish to do single-band 10 meters, but once I'd started I just could not give up hope that the band would open to somewhere at sometime. But, it just wasn't to be. There was a brief peek into southern Europe late Sunday morning and another in the late afternoon. Otherwise, it was VERY slow. Yet you never know until you try." - W5ASP

"The conditions were not kind on 40 meters. There was nearly no Europe. The JA path was poor the first night and better (but not good) the second night. Thanks to everyone for the calls." - N1XS

"It has been a while since I did a single-op all band effort, and I felt the urge to do one again. I started the contest tired because of a busy Friday, but that didn't seem to be a problem with all the allowed time off. I got better at the SO2R stuff as the contest went on." - K5NA

"I mainly got on (as fresh meat) and called CQ, figuring the fellows would find me. So the rates were high and I used the second radio to work stations. I found this hard after nearly two years of no practice handling two audio streams in a 'regular' contest. It was fun to get back in, if only for a little." - N3BB

"I decided to work 10 meters only, QRP, for a real challenge. The band was really poor all weekend. I worked 13.7 QSOs per hour. Conditions were so poor, after working all I could hear, I even tried running QRP. I bagged 12 QSOs in 44 minutes. All were USA and southeast or northeast of my QTH." - W5GAI
