WB4SLMSO HP 15MThunderstorm allowed me to shut down early, saving me any further pain, but was nice to see the bands open. P29TL was a nice surprise .. cheers
WB6OJBSO LP ALLFirst contest. Had a great time. Propagation was good most of the time, even on 10 meters. Talked with 5 new countries. If only I had more power and antenna that I could rotate.
WB7OCVSO QRP 40MThe stations just kept coming back to my call...even a couple CQ's... I never worked QRP this way before! I actually checked the RF out at least 5 times making sure I was under 5W. Tnx to all for my higest score ever in any contest
WC2LSA LP 40MFavorite Contest!! Had a blast, just no time :-(

WK0PSO HP ALLConditions not as good as they have been by any stretch but still had a blast! Thanks to all of those who called while I fought the heavy duty QRM.
WL7BDOSO LP ALLThis was my first real go at WPX. Was a lot of fun. And exceeded my goal of at least 258 Q's. Was nice to be able to work a few stations on four bands.
WM5RSO LP ALLI couldn't find a station to do a serious guest-op from, so I spent the weekend at an orienteering meet in Wise County instead. I took my Elecraft K2 and KAT100 with me, and operated some from the hotel using a 20' long random wire antenna. 15 meters worked a lot better than 20 meters, and I couldn't get anyone on 40 meters to hear me at all. I never heard a station on 20 meters. My best DX was Hawaii, followed by the Galapagos Islands. Only two stations answered my CQs. On Saturday night, conditions on 20 meters were awesome - I had solid copy on stations in Tomsk, Siberia and Kazakhstan with my tiny wire, but of course they couldn't hear me.
WN8RSO HP ALLA passion for contesting and the thrill of catching so many new multipliers makes the WPX one of the best! Even without a beam, a huge number of great DX and local contacts are available when so many enthusiats are on at the same time. Had a great time and can't wait for the next one!
WO9SSO HP 160MJust an hour and three quarters to see how 160 was doing. Lots of QRN; apologies to those I could not hear. Nice to work some other members of SMC.
WP3GWSO LP ALLVery nice propagation, even though had to miss 10 hours for the visit of the Hurricane Hunters plane; and the highlight was to work Alaska moving my antenna manually, and was worth it. And much better score!
WR2GSA HP 20MMurphy helped me get accustomed to my new interface with the computer logging, but I had fun anyway.
WS7XSO HP ALLNot my first contest. But my first log ever submitted.
WT8ESO LP ALLEven with the wounded beam (missing the director element) I had to keep raising my expectations on the amount of QSO's. Due to the great conditions as compared to last year the contest was a blast.
WV6NSO LP ALLGreat fun with only a 12ft mobile vertical antenna.
