"I mainly wanted to best my score from last year and did end up doing that. Multipliers are up from 228 last year mainly because of 15 meters and 40 meters. I spent most of Saturday at NR5M doing M/2 with Kenny, KZ5KG... we had a heck of a good time chasing multipliers. I even had a good Asia run on 20 meters late in the evening with some nice mults calling in (VU, HS, VR). Operating from home is a real challenge. Thanks to the European ops for pulling me out... I know how much QRM there is over on your side." - KU5B

"I had a bad cold/cough so could only do S&P with the DVK. I did try running on 15 meters on Sunday morning, and had a great time until my voice gave out again. 15 meters must have been hot, as I had the rate meter at 230 QSOs/hour for about 20 minutes with an HF6V. Of course, I was fresh meat - I'm sure that helped... The garbage on packet was nothing short of pathetic! The practices of some of the stations that are supposed to be 'role models' of Radio Sport... Well, let's just say after a weekend of tuning and doing lots of listening - they should practice more of what they preach." - K5NZ

"That was harder than the CW weekend. I didn't sleep well on Thursday night, so I felt tired all weekend and took lots of nap breaks. It is amazing (and fortunate) how well some people can hear! Thanks for pulling my little signal out of the QRM." - N5DO

"I did a part-time effort, about two hours, on just one band." - N5KF

"Same story as the ARRL DX CW Contest this year. The antenna was a multi-band doublet and the amplifier was about 700 watts. Only, this operation was more part-time because I found it difficult to listen to all the QRM for any long length of time. But of course I was hearing all over at the same time, so I think that helped on multipliers. All the operation was S&P and took off time to sleep each night." - K2UR

"This was a serious but not all-out effort. I missed the first five plus hours of the contest due to a social engagement. I've been a proponent of a 36 hour time limit for single-ops in this contest, so I decided to go one further. I got four hours sleep both nights, stopped to have dinner with the XYL on Saturday evening and took several 30 to 60 minute breaks. Net result was just under 30 hours on the air (compared to 40 in 2009). I still beat last years score by 150K (20 percent)." - N5AW

I wanted to operate single band 15 meters since there was a chance for some propagation and that is the band I have the fewest QSOs on with my all band Inverted L." - K3TD

"No time for this one. I just wanted to test Beverages to make sure they were working OK after having to make some changes to them so they would not be in the way of an oil well that is about to be drilled." - NX5M

"Bryan, W5KFT, has a wonderful station, and is a very genial host! Many thanks, Bryan." - NA5TR
