W4IDXSO LP ALLGreat conditions on 15 and 20 meters. After dodging the thunder storms on Friday night and Saturday morning, everything went fine. 10 never sounded too good from here, but I was amazed to see some of the single band 10 meter scores
W4NTISO HP ALLBands were good until Sunday. 40 was good Fri and Sat eve&#039;s. 15 was the best band. Ten was poor all weekend
W4WSSO QRP ALLGOOD CONDITIONS GREAT CONTEST
W6IXPSO HP ALLFirst full try at SO2R CW, and right at the start discovered that I didn&#039;t have the computer set up right for 2 CW keying interfaces. Thus, I lost the first 3 hours to Murphy, blowing the transistors in both interface boxes, rotating thru 4 computer/operat
W6NKRSO LP ALLOff periods, 0715-1240 05-26; 1425-1635 05-26; 1840-2130 05-26; 2215 05-26 - 0135 05-27; 0715-1430 05-27; 1805-2000 05-27.
W6YASO HP 15MThis was my first participation in WPX. Conditions were vastly superior on 15 meters to what I have seen during 20 years in CQWW DX. 15 was open to Europe late evening, and I even worked JA during the morning runs to Europe. The biggest problem, as usual,
W7DRASO LP 40MThis was a major effort from the home shack, now I remember why I am usually portable in some off island hotel.
W7EAISO LP ALLVery frustrating contest for this condo ham. Hard to compete with all the KW-yagi stations. But will continue to do contests.
W7UTSO HP ALLTri-bander is a hexbeam; single element is 45 ft. vertical.
W8RUSO LP ALLMy low-energy inaugural run at this contest. Very enjoyable!
W8UMRSO LP 20MToo many US stations (high power) hogging frequencies completely drowing weaker stations. I think power should be limited (say 100 watts or so).
W9ILYSO LP 15MHad a great time with great 15M conditions.
W9LYASO LP ALLMAXIMUM OUTPUT POWER 100 W FOR ALL CONTACTS BUTTERNUT HF9V (ALL-BAND VERTICAL) ANTENNA USED FOR ALL QSOS USED QRPDUPE 4.0 (by Brian Kassel, K7RE) FOR LOGGING
WA2VQVSO LP ALL15M &amp; 20M wer great. 10M &amp; 40M terrible.
WA6OSO HP 15MMany thanks to Ken, N6RO, for giving me a chance to operate his wonderful station. Thanks to Bob, K3EST, for his advices and guidance.
WA7LTSO HP 15M1. It took almost as long to create the Cabrillo report as it did to dupe the old manual logs! 2. It sure would help if I could have heard them. The dipole antenna plus arcing of the neighbors electric fence during the first day sure made it rough.
WI0WASO QRP ALLMy first ever WPX CW Qs.
WN6KSO LP ALL15 meter opening to Russia on Saturday evening but otherwise the... Bands were a disaster...I never knew where to go...
WO4OSO LP ALLKudos to Tom (K1KY/W4CAT) for allowing me to use his fine station while mine is under construction. As usual, had FUN!
WV2LISO LP ALLLot&#039;s of fun as usual! My first try at SO2R and I can see why it&#039;s so popular. WPX CW is my favorite contest, bar none!
WW3GSO LP ALLhad fun with low power and mag mount antenna on car, borrowed call. My favorite major CW contest by a long shot.
WW4MSO HP 10MLightning, QRN that sounded like 160 and precipitation static couldn&#039;t spoil the fun of 10 at the cycle peak! Most fun was a late opening to Central Asia/Europe Saturday night and running JA&#039;s via long path on Sunday morning.
WX6VSO LP ALLSpent all day Friday throwing up bi-square antennas just so I could
WZ1RSO HP 15MBad WX here with Lightning. QRT many times. Had to operate around the lightning, even at UTC times that were not good for 15M normally. Saturday conditions were very good. About 0600Z Sunday Europe was back in but I could not stay awake. QRT for sleep unt
WZ2TSO QRP ALLMaximum power used 4 watts.
XE1/AA6RXSO LP ALLWhat a great way to learn about spring/summer propagation. I had lots of fun making my 500k quota. A note concerning accuracy. With the stricter log checking these days I am surprised by the attitude of some operators who copy my call wrong. Instead of se

ZC4DWSO LP ALLFirst ever serious effort in WPX. Used it as a testing ground for new software and new transceiver. Hard work on just 1 single antenna - simple wire doublet with balanced feed to roller-inductor ATU. Operating in 36 degs C of Cyprus heat was appropriate t
