"Sharon doesn't do CW, I don't do SSB. This is the perfect contest for us to multi-op. We did much better this year. This year, Sharon tried something new, calling CQ and running a pile-up at a rate of up to 225 QSOs per hour on the rate meter." - K5YA (@ W5YAA)

"With all the time spent in other contests this time of year and lots of social commitments I'm never able to make a serious entry in the ten meter contest. However, it is always fun to get on for a few hours because of the high rates achievable for at least short bursts." - N5AW

"There were some terrific openings. It was fun and awesome to watch the band change around. There were some fantastic signals on the band." - N3BB

"I'll be darned. You CAN get blood from a turnip. This has been a very interesting contest, indeed. Isn't ten meters fun?" - KG5U

"Conditions were unstable, but better than I expected for this end of the cycle. The band would go from flat to wide open in the USA in just a moment. There were times when I was working W1s and W6s at the same time. What a fun band." - K5NA

"We had a few western Europeans call in, and a nice opening over the pole Sunday afternoon. This is the first year in nine straight to not break the one million point barrier." - NX5M

"I hadn't planned to spend this much time; because I thought it the conditions wouldn't be very good. I was certainly wrong. Conditions from late morning through late afternoon were excellent. I have power line noise, but it chose to stay away during the best part of the day. My biggest surprise was the Scandinavian stations calling in on both phone and CW. I was really surprised at the number of Alabama, Virginia, and Kansas stations - it seemed like every ham in these states were on. On the other hand, I didn't hear a single California station during the first full day of the contest. I certainly gave the rate meter a workout." - W5VX

"I played around for a few hours Friday night and Saturday. Today, I replaced a water heater for my daughter and son-in-law. Radio is a lot more fun than plumbing!" - K5OT

"It still amazes me how a "dead band" can have northwest USA and Central/South America with S9 signals." - KI5DR

"I stopped by the W5IBM station Saturday afternoon to work the Florida QSO Party - I mean, the ARRL 10 Meter Contest. :-) Conditions were much better than I expected. The rate was steady all afternoon and still cooking around 0000 UTC when I had to take off." - K5PI (@ W5IBM)

"I only made a few QSOs for fun, as I had other commitments." - AA5VU

"I never imagined that I could top last year's QSO total and score. I'm really happy with how the station performed. There were no mechanical or electrical issues all weekend long, and I think the station really gets out well on ten meters." - WM5R (@ K5TR)
