K0HWSO LP ALLSpent a few hours on this after getting home from a trip and while free over the weekend. I always enjoy testing the contest setup and the differences in the antennas. To much QRN for any testing on 80-160.
K0PKSO LP ALLI was happy to meet my goal of beating last year's score by a substantial margin. Not as many Qs this year but higher points/QSO did the trick. Also nice to see some propagation on 15 & 10 from this corner of the Black Hole. Thanks for a great contest!
K0UKSO LP 20MJust had a few minutes to spend. Family, church keep me off this weekend. Good luck to all. PTL bill K0UK

K3TWSO QRP 20MBand conditions were excellent for QRP.
K3WWPSO QRP ALLMost 40 meter QSO's were made with 930 mW output to my attic random wire antenna as part of our North American QRP CW Club (NAQCC) May challenge of making as many QSO's as possible using milliwatt power levels. See http://www.usatek.net/~yoel/ for more details about the club.
K4GMHChecklogThis is only a check log!
K4MMSA LP ALLRig: TS-2000 100wts & MFJ tuner. Ant: 60 meter sloping dipole. Band conditions were pretty good. It is amazing what you can work without a real antenna.
K4XDSA HP 80MMy first single band 80M effort -- helped to get a feeling for when things really start rolling in. Thanks for the contacts and to those I couldn't dig out of the noise, my apologies!
K6CSLSO LP ALLLots of fun, but a little short of last years score.
K6TASA HP ALLKW
K7CS/4SO HP ALLSome activity all bands. New personal best any contest. very pleased with myself, but no Africa.
K9WWTSO HP ALLContesters MAKE their own band conditions!
KA1ARB/4SA HP ALLMy highest number of QSO's so far in a CW contest. And that's in spite of my dead rotator leaving my beam pointed SW! Lots of fun, and thanks for all the contacts.
KA6SGT/9SO QRP ALLGreat contest, good conditions, and a lot of fun!

KB7QSO LP 20MWorking in Yellowstone Park, so just threw up a wire and enjoyed the new K3 radio.
KB9YGDSO LP ALLtnx wonderfull time cu next year es 73 de kb9ygd
KC6XSA HP ALLTerrible condx from the west coast on 10/15m! 20m was the money band. There was an unexpected Russian/East EU opening late Friday night on 20m. A few EU on 40m came thru. Hopefully, next year there will be those elusive things known as sunspots.
KD4D/3M2Thanks as always to John Evans, N3HBX, for letting us use his fine station. 10 meters was a nice surprise - we actually worked a European. 15 was better than last year. See everyone in the next one!
KE1F/4SA HP ALLGood to have 10 meters open to Europe.
KE5LQSO LP ALLICOM IC-718
KE7DXSO LP ALLI have no permanent antenna installation at my home QTH, so I set up my portable G5RV-style homebrew antenna in the backyard Friday afternoon, in preparation for a 5pm local start time. I started getting frustrated, because I wasn't hearing any signals with the antenna hooked up to the tuner, although the tuner tuned just fine to 11 in transmit. However, if I opened the connection to disconnect the ground, reception wasn't half bad. I spent Friday evening wondering how the antenna could possibly perform better with just the center conductor attached vs center & ground connections connected. When I woke up Saturday morning, I went out back to get a book, figuring my ham radio weekend was over. I look at the ground where the coax enters the house, and there, neatly coiled, was the coax that I never hooked to the antenna. Duh! The coax received fine with just the center conductor attached, but reception was poor when I grounded the shield!!! Well, I set up and decided to have a ham radio weekend after all. Worked some DX once I had an antenna hooked up! Had a lot of fun, and thanks to all who made the contest happen!
KH7XSO HP ALLCAUGHT A NASTY BUG LEAVING DAYTON, TOUGH SLEDDING FROM OUT HERE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE CYCLE - KH7X(KH6ND op)
KJ4AOMSO LP 10MI MISNUMBERED SOME SERIALS DURING CONTEST......BUT THIS IS WHAT WAS SENT!
KN3ASO LP ALLThanks for QSO!
KN4YSO LP 40MA lttle operating between bowling squads.
KO0USO HP ALLNice conditions Friday night and Saturday afternoon. Fun
KQ6XSO LP ALLMy cat kept sitting on the rig. Multioperator?
KR2QSO QRP ALLSeems like more guys are taking the exchange seriously. I had more requests for multiple repeats than ever before. Or perhaps I am just weaker than ever before. I even had two guys tell me, after gettting my call right away, that they had no copy on my serial number and I therefore voided the QSO. This is a good change!
KR7O/6SO HP ALLMany thanks to Robert for the use of the borrowed callsign. My new Perseus SDR arrived just a few hours before the start of the contest, and I did NOT have time to figure out how to make it work with CW Skimmer. So I ended up using the SDR's waterfall display only -- best band scope I have ever used.
KS0MSO LP ALLI bettered last years QSO count by 60 contacts. First time calls were 18%. My morning hour propagation was poor. EU finally opened up late Saturday afternoon and brought in a lot of multipliers at 3 points. I had fun.
KS7TSO HP ALLEnjoyed what I worked on the low bands but either my QTH is not in the propagation zone this year or more people needed to take advantage of the low bands,hi!
KT3Y/4MSHI am willing to donate a plaque for this category. M/S USA CW
KT4PDSO LP ALLflagpole (vertical), operated 8.8 hours
KV8QSO LP ALLLots of QRN on 80, especially the first night. It was nice to work Europe on 15 again for a change. Also nice to work a few stations on 10. Lots of real deep QSB throughout the entire contest here. Thanks for all the QSO's & I'll see you all next year. Rig: Ten Tec Jupiter @ 100 watts Antenna: 102' G5RC @ 45'
