W7QDMSO LP ALLIs there anything that can be done about arrogant operators who waste our time by not identifying more often?
W7RHSO LP 160MFirst year with no snow, rain or mud. Good spot opening to EU the first night. Second night a bust at 01:45 UTC with SID. Thanks to all the JA stations that filled the band on Sunday morning helping me make a personal best effort. You have to love this contest, the second night is brutal. 73 Bob, W7RH

W8GOCSO LP 20MUsed my FT2000 at 100W into a 14AVQ vertical
W8NF/7SA HP ALLStarted the effort just trying to fill in holes in my DXCC standing. On that score, I did tolerably - 35 or so were on the air that I needed, and I netted about 15, between the 'test and the week prior. I put in an hour or two here and there during a weekend of trying to tie up loose ends on unfinished projects. A few projects did get finished, and when I hit QSO #200 and got over 100,000 points at the same moment, I figured that was good enough for not really trying, hi. But spotted Scotland on 15 and had to go get him. TS-850SAT, Heathkit amp at 700 watts, and a moss-covered HF9V with a mostly broken-by-falling-tree-branches elevated radial system. For a station that's experienced "delayed maintenance", I felt it did a good job. It was a lot of fun, particularly the last two hours, when I saw the rate meter, for ten minutes, bump up over 100 a few times - I didn't know I could S&P that fast! 73 Dave

WL7BDOSO LP 40MFirst time trying CQ-WW-CW, really enjoyed it
WQ6XSO LP ALLI found myself house sitting this weekend so I mounted a Butternut HF-2V on an umbrella stand and wound the radials around the yard. Being only a couple of blocks away from the beach made for some excellent conditions; especially into Asia and South America, altho I was amazed at the "pipeline" I had to west africa. Friday night condx. were awesome; especially on 40-m. A solar storm took out 40-m on Sat. night. 40-M & 15-M were awesome bands, as was 10-m. Where was 20-m this year? My biggest beef is stations who make 10 - 20 QSOs w/o ID'ing. Correct me if I am wrong, but isn't a QSO valid ONLY if you ALSO send your callsign with the exchange? MANY DX stations used their callsign as part of the TU w/o any slow down in operating speed. Anyone can get a high QSO count by bending the rules. The REAL masters of this art get a high QSO count by NOT bending the rules
XE1AYSO LP ALLI had a little time in this contest. Friday was a bad conditions but I enjoyed the countrties that could hear me
