"I enjoyed this one while working on my three element tribander and my tower at the same time. I'm trying to get ready for CQ World Wide CW, using this contest as a guide of what adjustments I need to make for the important CW contest upcoming. Most of my contacts were made on my Butternut Vertical and low power. The FT-1000MP is a great rig and the filtering made all the difference for me." - AD5VJ

"20 meters was brutal with my low wire antenna, but thank goodness for 15 meters. I also had some TE on 10 meters that was a nice surprise. I convinced two good friends, W3TD and WA3UAT, to get on and hand out some contacts in the hope they get hooked on contesting!" - K3TD

"Low band (160 meter and 80 meter) conditions were the best I have ever seen for this contest. However, 10 meter and 15 meter conditions were about the worst. Is the bottom of the cycle really over? I am not sure I would say that until I see the high bands improving. Maybe next year. We had a good crew that worked hard. But, as usual, we found it difficult to crack through the east coast wall on 20 meters. We gave it our best effort." - K5NA

"This was just a part-time non-serious effort to test out new computer systems, interfaces, WinTest software and various other recently added hardware. This was certainly a well-spent 24 hours. This was an 85% search and pounce approach. Only entered M/M because there are no limitations and we could move around the bands freely and I felt this was the best way to test out all the latest upgrades." - NX5M

"Another fine CQ World Wide SSB contest. The low bands were great from here in Texas. 160 meters was the best I can ever recall for any contest. It was amazing to easily work European stations on SSB." - K5TR
