KM3T/1MMNew USA M/M record! Great activity from EU but we need to do more to promote W/VE and JA activity. This is a great, fun contest with really interesting propagation!
KN4YSO LP 10MFair conditions, enough to keep an old man busy between naps.
KS7TSO HP ALLALWAYS ABLE TO WORK NEW PREFIXES IN THIS ONE EVEN AT OVER 3900 WRKED. CONDX WEREN&#039;T OPTIMUM HERE BUT STILL GOOD ENOUGH TO MAKE THIS CONTEST AS EXCITING AS ALWAYS!
KS9KSO LP ALLAlthough many refer to the WPX contest as a &quot;run fest&quot;, of my 1865 QSOs, 724 were S&amp;P. Ten meters was not as good here this year, no Europeans heard on Saturday and only a handful of big stations from Southern Europe heard on Sunday. Of course no JAs on 10
KU7YSO QRP 40MI operated from Rod, W7ZRC&#039;s fine station which made working JA&#039;s fun! Many thanks to all who worked me and to Rod for the use of his fine station. 3 elements at 120 feet sure help. There is also a dipole at 90 feet and a full sized vertical. Wheeeeeee!!!
KV8QSO LP ALLSure was glad to see 10 open to EU on Sunday. 15 was super all weekend. Still amazed how well the Gap Eagle-DX works!!!
M3SMSHFirst time with new Stevenage club call and first time in CQ WPX - great fun but only managed about 35 hrs. Quite pleased with the score for 100 W but will try harder next time.
M5XSO LP 80MConditions poor to North America. VE3EJ only VE heard. Operating standards good. Thanks to those stations who had patience to copy my weak signals
MM0BQISA LP ALLGreat fun with some fb DX about both days. Could only fit a few hours in between family and work but well worth the effort. Heard much more than I could work with 50 watts to a dipole in the back garden.
MU0FALSO LP ALLrealy must get in more hours
N0IBTSO QRP ALLTimes Off, Sat 0000-1000; 1200-1400. Sat 1800-Sun 1100. Sun 1700-1900; 2100-2400. Total, 34 hours off.

N2NISA LP ALLFrom an 18Floor Apartment in Manhattan, New York City with twisted dipoles on the terrace.
N2WKSSO LP ALLPut up a dipole on Friday and installed writelog on friday...spent the time learning the program and seeing how the antenna worked. Great to be back on the air!
N3MXSA LP ALLFIRST TIME WPX ENTRY... LIMITED OPERATION DUE TO THUNDERSTORMS &amp; 1 WEEK OLD HARMONIC HIHI :) NEXT YEAR WILL BE BETTER!!!
N3UMSO HP ALLOut of town until halfway thru the contest, but did my best in the time remaining and had fun.
N6ZZ/5SO HP ALLApproached this event casually, but got sucked in with some fine conditions and wish now that I&#039;d approached it more seriously from the outset! Some outstanding European signals on 15 meters after midnight. 10, however, was disappointing, with only the big
N7IRSO QRP ALLThe opening Sunday morning on 10 meters to Europe was a nice surprise.
N8LMSO LP ALLOne band at a time appeared to be really active, leaving the slower bands as goo from Asia. All around better than I expected.
N9AG/8SO HP ALLQRN on Saturday wore me out and didn&#039;t take advantage of the second day when there were good condx!
N9BORSO LP ALLDrake C Line, ground mounted vertical. Snagged two new countries!
N9GUNSO LP 15MGreat conditions on Saturday night on 15M worked EU till almost midnight local time.

NU5ASO HP ALLCool condx makes a contest fun. Bad wx couldn&#039;t dampen this one! Where were the JA&#039;s? Good condx for the few who haven&#039;t given up on contesting.
NU8ZSA LP ALLMy first try at WPX CW from home station. Lots of activity.
NW7DXSO LP ALLThis was an excellent contest. I operated from K7RI&#039;s station using my own call sign. Boy, his antennas are excellent! Had a couple good EU runs which lasted for a bit, but never did get any good JA stuff. 10 meters was very poor up here. Almost all of my
NW7R/1SO HP ALLThanks to my Dad for the use of his call sign!
NX7KSO HP ALLWish could have operated longer.
NY4AMMIncredible condx on 15M. Usual summer QRN made it rough on 80M. Sure would be nice to move wpx CW back to April -OR- switch the dates between Phone and CW. As usual for end of May, many qso&#039;s to be had on 80M but QRN was too rough to copy weaker stations.
OE2BZLSO HP ALLExcellent conditions. Unusual opening to North America on 10M for May. My highest score ever in WPX contest.
OE75CIQSA HP ALLFirst time I joined the CQ WPX CW contest. Was a funny weekend but also a lot of other work to do so I could only operate about 25 hours. Bad propagation on 10m but nice DX on the other bands.
OE75CWLSO HP ALLFirst time to make more QSOs on CW than SSB in an international contest. Much fun

OH6NIOSO HP ALLFlu and contests, they don&#039;t mix! Had fun anyway.
OH6YSO HP 40MOperating on 40m from the same latitude with Anchorage does&#039;t give dark time for better conditions at all this time of the year. Only a couple of hours in the twilight. There is even a big difference to Southern Finland. Anyway, it was a lot of fun... OH6YF
