"What a difference a year makes! This was fun! Last year, I only had 5 hours when the band was open here, working 61 QSO's, 31 countries, 18 zones and score of 8,892 points. This year, I was able to search and pounce up and down the band with good daylight propagation and loud signals. I made QSOs all the way up to 28.196 MHz." - W5GAI

"Thanks to George for his generosity in letting me use his station -- and his new full-sized, 4 element 40 meter OWA beam. That antenna is at 120 feet, but is effectively higher due to his sloping ground location. It was a champ! It's been several years since I did a 48 hour contest as a single operator, and I decided this time not to kill myself. While I definitely felt my mental acuity diminish -- it got harder and harder to work the second radio -- I didn't have a repeat of my 2003 experience when I woke up from a nap, sat down in the chair, and honestly had no clue how to make a contact for five full minutes! I'm a little embarrased of my 160 meter numbers, but honestly I just didn't find many signals on the band. Wasn't 10 meters a blast?! Only two weeks till the ARRL 10 Meter Contest!" - K5PI (@ K5TR)

"I did my usual single-op assisted. I tried to run more this year for a bigger score and I did manage that to some degree. But, I am still seduced by the DX pileups and it was hard to not be turned back into a DXer rather than being a contester. I still need to find the right balance between the two to maximize my score." - K5NA

"Wow! This was the first time in a very long time that I reached over a million points. I am sure some will be knocked off and it won't finish that way, but that was fun! My li'l ol' quad on that short tower did OK I guess. It was really fun having 10 meters back in play!" - K5IID

"Our best score yet by far. I guess three old guys with a tribander/shorty forty/wires still have a little life yet!" - W5VX

"It is great to have 10 meters back, but the low bands were certainly not as good as last year. I had more total country multipliers last year (510 vs. 506). However, I made 300 more contacts this year than las, which appears to meet my goal of breaking N5TJ's 5th call area low power record set back in 1998. I will have to wait for the log checking, but my raw score looks high enough to survive the usual point reduction." - N5AW

"Although I wasn't able to spend alot of time in the contest, the conditions when I was on were pretty good. I guess I split my time between CQing and S&P." - K5XA

"Great conditions! The bands were HOT! I even worked some Southeast Asia long path on 10 meters. I felt really loud in this contest. I was able to bust many pileups with relative ease, faster than in previous contests. My goal for the next contest is more than 2000 QSOs." - N5XZ

"There were some really great conditions on the high bands. Most everyone was loud and easy to copy, making this a very pleasant experience. It was so great in fact, that the pileups got out of hand on many occasions. But we managed to keep going and had our best M/S score ever." - K5WA (@ ZF1A)

"I've been having REAL troubles with antennas here and been trying to fix the problems. I got on to make a few contacts and I found it's worse than I'd thought. I hope to get some of this straightened out before the really bad weather hits." - N8NOE
