Thanks to the stations that worked me.  And thanks to the ARRL staff for setting this up.  It was
fun!  73 Karl

Band conditions were tough, with no action above 20 m.  Even on 20 m, the signals were up and down
rapidly.

It was great to hear all the rookie stations on the air, and particularly the ones calling CQ.  Many
thanks to AB7BB and N3BBQ for two bands.

I hope to hear you on again soon!

Hope hoping for more participation and obviously better conditions but still made some good contacts
and met some fine hams.  Looking forward to next year.  Thanks to all who worked with me.  73s

Thanks for the opportunity to practice my rookie CW skills.

Conditions rather poor and not much activity, but fun for the few contacts I did make. 

Note: http://www.arrl.org/rookie-roundup under Awards says: "Non-rookies submitting a check log will
be recognized by call in the final results" but under Score Submission Deadlines says "no logs
are... accepted". So, should probably change "submitting a check log" to "submitting a score".

A very fun Sunday afternoon. Much respect to any Rookie who will take it upon himself or herself to
learn Morse. These people are getting ham radio right. Thank you for putting on this event.

I want to thank all the operators that stuck through the QSO's with me!!!!  If it wasn't for their
patience, I wouldn't have made it through.  This is my first and last CW RR I get to attend, but I
will say it has given me the confidence to go CW full speed ahead.

It was a pleasure and I hope to see all on the bands in the future!!

This was my first time participating in the Rookie Roundup.  I had a great time but wish it was a
pretty slow start.  I scored 360 points total with 15 different sections.  Not bad for a 12 year
old!  73, good DX, and Merry Christmas!  Bryant KG5HVO

Lots of patient ops and gentle pileups!

Jamey (KC1ENX) and Abby (KC1FFX) Finchum operated in a multi-op entry using the Nashua Area Radio
Club callsign, N1FD, host at the AB1QB/AB1OC station. We all had a great time and improved our CW
skills! Looking forward to the next Rookie Roundup!
