"I almost wore out the CQ key. In between CQs, I read about one third of G3SXW's book about his DXpeditions called Up Two. I guess I did OK for 10 meter single-band, but I have no idea who my competition was." - K5NA (NN5AA, @ K5NA)

"I was not able to put in a full time effort, but I had intended to make a semi-serious single band 15 meter entry. However, things were so slow I spent almost as much time on the other bands as I did on 15 meters. There were very few Europeans on 15 meters except the big guns. 20 meters was a little better, but the static level was high much of the time. Needless to say, 40 meters and 80 meters were very difficult, and I only made a token effort there." - N5AW

"I had some family things come up this weekend that prevented my operating full time. I worked 11 of the first 12 hours, then about 3.5 hours Saturday evening and a bit Sunday morning. Conditions seemed okay, especially on 20 meters." - K5PI (W5CT, @ W5KFT)

"It was almost impossible to run Europe on 40 meters, even with a very good 40 meter antenna here! The main problem was the extremely noisy bands to Europe from the bad storms in the USA Midwest. I could not hear the stations coming back to me on Beverages or any antennas. That killed my score with few European six-point QSOs. I could hear KW9N and the east coast guys running Europe well. For the most part, I was stuck with working the louder guys there who were CQing." - NT5C (N3BB, op. @ N3BB)

"I just played around in the contest this weekend - checking out the Ten-Tec Orion's selectivity in the packed and noisy bands. It was even more noisy than usual here, and thankfully the rig's DSP took some of it out. Very nasty stuff." - AC5AA
