KG4W Submitted score = 2.5 hrs operated Sat night. Made another 20 qso's in 3.5 hrs Sun am but Sat night was my best.

N5BO Activity level was decent at the start, but fell off after a few hours. Alot of time was spent CQ'ing with no answers after the first few hours, and the same throughout Sunday during the daylight hours. The highlight of the sprint was working 10 Centurions towards the Tribune award :)

KJ7BS Band conditions were very poor and the RTTY contest and teh OK QSO party were definately challenging to work around. I had hope of working more after the RTTY contest ended at 0300z, but my calls went unanswered.

AA2XB I feel the use of four of the twenty four period a novel and fair method of obtaining a score. In my case I was only available to operate the first three hours of the event, but puts the scoring on an equal basis with an operator that was only able to operate a few hours later in the event, or in the case of those lucky few, who were able to operate all day. This method would seem to fit into anyone,s schedule.

KC2EGL Had plenty of fun when I had time to sit at the radio. Gave out the SKCC website info to the only non SKCC Op I worked. Will definately do this again and again. Thanks Bill for running the show.

NN8B I guess 40 meters at 1600Z is not the time or place to start running QRP in a contest. Next time will be better. 73, Don, NN8B

W6UT Was only able to work time slot and one earlier Q. Kind of slow on 20 meters for 4 hours.

KC5GXL This was fun, butthe bands really stunk here this weekend. Maybe next time will be better. Only worked one station and lots of qsb then. 73, Dan

AF2Z Managed to work six stations on 80 & 40 for a short time during Saturday evening; just called the strong ones that I heard. Will do more next time.

N4ARO I was busy with the Oklahoma QSO party, Idaho QSO party, a construction job in the shack, and various other things. It also was too pretty a day to be by the radio very much. I didn't hear anyone on any band over about a 7 hour period of time other than the 4 I worked. All were Centurions!

N2BE I just found out about this contest an hour-and-a-half before it ended. It was fun, anyway. This contest was a great idea ! Is anyone intending to do some international frequency coordination for 40 meters ?!? Between foreign AM-BC and foreign Ham-SSB, the band is a mess. I hate to see that happen to some of the best frequency "real estate" that we have.

N8UO This was a fun event, even though I had a limited time for operating and band conditions being pretty lousy here in the Detroit area. I'm looking forward to the next one. Everybody that is running the SKCC and the sprint events etc are doing a fantastic job! 73 Ken N8UO

W2JNZ Had fun !! Only about my 10th SK contacts. Used a Ten Tec Century 21 to a half G5RV up 40 ft using a Llaves mini key. Thanks Bill for the weekend fun !!!!
