"People who know me know I am not a phone person and I dreaded the thought of doing the ARRL November Sweepstakes, Phone as a single operator. But I didn't want the station to go idle this year, so Susan and I decided to do a multi operator effort. Then we heard that Colin KU5B was looking for a place to do the contest, and we decided to invite him over to join us. This turned out to be one of the better decisions that I have ever made. Colin settled in, doing 99 percent of the running for the weekend and I filled in occasionally only when needed. He did a terrific job of fighting the QRM, digging out the weak callers, maintaining a run frequency, while keeping up impressive QSO rates. In short, Colin was terrific." - K5NA

"This is the first year I've gone to bed on Saturday night with over 1000 QSOs. I had a really slow first hour on 20 meters before things began to pick up. I think I just got lucky on 40 meters and managed to get good frequencies that held up through the broadcasters' schedules. This is a personal best QSO total for me, but I never heard a station from Nl or Nt sections all weekend." - WM5R (@ W5KFT)

"I used an inverted L at 30'. I had fun playing part time." - K3TD

"I had to go Unlimited to find the Missouri multiplier, and I nearly didn't work him in the QRM. It's funny how the "not so common" ones can easily be missed ... especially when the skip is long." - W5ASP (@ KX5R)

"Another fun Sweepstakes. I have been trying for a long time to get a full hour above 200 QSOs/hr and once again I did not make it, although I did get closer - next year!" - K5TR
