"Have you ever had one of those contests where everything just works great? Propagation is good for you, signals are strong, your long suffering line noise has vanished, your every move seems to be blessed with good fortune in short you feel at one with bands. I have too. But that was some other weekend, during some other contest. My contest started on 15 meters. At 0035 UTC, the Ameritron AL-1500 amplifier that I was using blew up in a most impressive display of POPS, cracks, sizzle, and smoke. The plume of smoke blasting out of the top tube vent was not unlike the smoke seen when a NASCAR engine blows at Daytona." - K5TR

"When your mother-in-law's 90th birthday happens to be on WPX weekend... well you better show up! If I hadn't. my 91 year old father-in-law would probably kick my you know what! All-in-all, it was a fun time, but 40 meters and 80 meters desparately need antenna improvement! Hopefully, I will get it done before the CW weekend." - K5IID

"I worked very hard this year on 3 and 6 point QSOs, so my QSO count was down, but my score was up. I was a zombie by the time I ran out of time with about 6 hours left to go in the contest. At one point I was in the chair for 17+ hours with only ONE 2 minute bio break! I slept the second night only and only for one and one-half hours. This definitely degraded my performance by the end of the contest." - NR5M

"It sure was great to finally have a decent 80 meter antenna to use!" - K5XA

"Wow! Great conditions on 15 meters. On Saturday, I was the lead instructor for our local radio club's Technician license class, so I was unable to operate most of the day. I ended up operating 8 hours less than last year, but had a substantially better score due to the better conditions." - N5DO

"Just a casual operation checking out things configured for Multi-operator, Multi-transmitter operation." - AB5K

"This was not a full time effort - we got plenty of sleep at night. It's hard to do a serious multi without enough people." - NX5M
