9M6BRCMSHRig: Transceiver Ten-Tec Omni VI and Icom IC-PW1 Linear @ 400w. Antennas: (HF) Cushcraft A4S (LF) 40-80m Inverted Vee We had a few experienced ops but were very glad to welcome some first time ops including a group from the Keningau area. They did very well and hopefully will have enjoyed working on the HF bands so will be encouraged to upgrade their licenses. The others who monitored the proceedings should be confident enough to go on the mike next time! Band condx were poor on Saturday better on Sunday but much poorer than they have been recently.
9W2ESMSO LP 10MNewbiew in 10m, start with no plan using vertical antenna
A71CVSO HP 15MI feel in love with 15m WPX SSB 2010 was a great opportunity to test my setup since I installed my antenna one week before the contest. 15m was my target and I was running the station for about 26 hours. In the first day after the sunset I had a huge pileup with North America and the continental distribution in WIN-TEST was show a green for a long time that was good for me because most of US call was a new multiplier. It really was a big opening, US stations were stronger than European at that time just for the first day. During the contest I worked 802 prefix and 102 DXCC. Working condition: Radio: Kenwood TS-2000 Antenna: Hy-gain TH-11DX (16m high) Amplifier: Emtron DX-2SP (TNX Ali A71BX) 15m was a lot of fun and at the end I think I feel in love with 15m Many thanks for all worked station and good luck for all See you in WPX SSB 2011 73s from Qatar A71CV, Abdulla
A71ELSO HP 10MIt was big fun since it was my first contest. The band wasn't open all the time, any way I had many many QSOs with South America. I hope good luck for all and see you next year. Best 73s from Qatar de A71EL, Mohammad

AD7UPSO LP ALLHave not heard 40 and 10 this good in a long time. Hope to be back on next year.
AE4ECSO HP ALLbest effort ever for me
AE5PWSA LP ALLAs a relative newcomer to HF (since mid-2008), I have often heard stories about how you can actually have QSOs on 10 meters instead of just listening to static. I thought those hams were just making stories up about what happens when there are sunspots and a decent solar flux. Imagine my surprise when I found 10 meter activity in the opening minutes of the contest! And then tuning to 15 meters there was even more. As a very very little gun, I focused my efforts on 10 and 15 only, and 90% of it was search and pounce. I did call CQ on 15 meters for a couple hours and was pleased to have actual takers. Thanks to all of you who answered my very weak CQ calls! The station here is simple - a Yaesu FT950 running 100 watts with a Butternut HF9V vertical, ground mounted. As I always say in these soapbox comments, I never cease to be amazed at what such a simple setup can do. I did manage to pick up 4 new DXCC entities on 10 meters, and another 4 new ones on 15 meters. Thank you to all the friendly participants in this contest. I look forward to the next one!
AE8USO LP ALLThis was my first contest!!
AF9JSO QRP ALLHad Fun! I wish I'd had more time avialble for participating
AG0ASO LP ALLHad fun, search and pounce mode. Tried a couple of runs but better searching and going up and down bands. First night had high swr on vertical, second night had it corrected.
AH6RRSA HP 20MJust thought I would try to have some fun. I want to try to break 900 Q's or 1.25 Mil points Q's. I did meet my goal in the WPX RTTY contest of 500 Q's
