EA8BVPSO LP 15MMy first WPX TEST. It was boring because of poor condx, although I worked some juicious prefix and new ones. Doing S&amp;P most of the time because nobody answered my running. I hope better condx next year. TS480@75W EFHWA vertical

EC5KXASO LP 40MAt our station, EA5ELT, we need a good CW filter for the TS850.
EI2CNSA HP ALLI could not last the night on 160 M - top band operators are night owls. Instead of packing it in I started hunting and pouncing on 15 M using the cluster. Then worked 160 Meter that night and did not find any advantage to the cluster. Saturday was a twenty meter day when most of the Qs were made. Next year I may do 15 M single band. Thanks for the fun.
EI4CFSO LP 15MCould only dip in and out, but band open for most of th the day - 16 hours.

F5SGISO LP ALLI DEFINITELY LOVE THIS CONTEST ! CONDITIONS WERE OUTSTANDING, INCLUDING NICE OPENINGS ON 10 M ALL OVER THE WEEKEND.MOST OPERATORS WERE IMPRESSIVE AND DID NOT CONFUSE OPERATING SKILLS WITH TRANSMITTING SPEED.
F5ULSO QRP 40MAs in 2007, I used the Elecraft K2 barefoot, running 4.8 watts to the same vertical 25 feet aerial, with an LDG tuner at his base. The propag was not very good during the day, from about 0800/0900 up to 1700/1800 and my best series was done early in the night!

F6BEESO HP ALLToo tired before start, too much sleep during the contest, so not enough QSOs. Lot of fun after recovering a bit but it was too late !
G0MRHSO LP ALLEnjoyed the contest for the limited time I participate
G0MTNSO LP ALLOperator exhausted at the beginning, and station not able to cope with the winds. Sadly a much curtailed effort this year.

G3LHJSO QRP 20MEnjoyable contest yet again - condx were good but hard working the DX with QRP. CU next year god willing 73 de Derrick G3LHJ.
G3TXFSO HP ALLGreat to hear 15m and 10m buzzing with short-skip signals, as well as a few DX stations. Operated for 35 hours across all bands. But 20m remains the power-band until the sun-spots return for real.
G3VQOSO LP ALLjust a casual entry finding new band/slots and prefixes
G3WWSO LP 10MNice to hear North America on 10m in Europe again!
G3YMCSO QRP ALLA fun weekend as usual, plenty of activity and lots to work. Nice to have some sporadic E on 15m and 10m. Conditions otherwise pretty average, and the paths to the USA were a bit marginal on all bands. My 160m antenna is down and the moment and my longwire is poor on 80m so concentrated on the higher bands. 73 Dave
G3ZRJSO LP 10MSORRY I COULDN&#039;T DO MORE HOURS CONDITIONS WERE PATCHY WITH SOME GOOD OPENINGS TO 9M BY AND 9V AND THE OCCASIONAL JA 28 MHZ WAS HUMMING ROUND EUROPE AND TO MID RUSSIA GREAT TO HEAR 10M ACTIVE AGAIN

GM4FDMChecklogPlease use only as CHECKLOG
GM4SIDSO HP ALLBetter band conditions this year. SD Logger was superb again.
GM4UBJSO QRP 10M10 mtrs open at midnight in GM land during sunspot minimum ! well it was true maybe these contests create their own propogation after all. I used an ic7400 at 5w , a windom at 30ft. and SD to log but the most importan t was noise cancelling headphones for the teenage QRM !
GM4UYZSA LP ALLManaged a few hours on Sunday and thoroughly enjoyed what I worked. Nice to see some CW operators slowing down a bit to allow not so experienced CW operators to to work them. Wish a lot more would do that as not everyone can read 30+ CW. Yes great for them but I think they fail to realise that many people don&#039;t come on because they cannot read CW at those excessive speeds... should set 25 WPM maximum Radio: TS2000 Antenna: CUSHCRAFT R5 Vertical Power: 100W
GM5CXSO HP ALLnice conditions
GM7VSO HP ALL10m in great shape, but should have spent more time on LF. 73
