Had a great time! Picked a spot and sat there. The sunspots weren't that awesome and the QSB picked
up later in the day, but all in all, good time.

I was licensed before 2015 and became a General in 2016, but this was my first time using CW. 
"3.1.1.2. Have not made any contacts on the contest mode (SSB, CW, or RTTY) before the contest.
Operators may only enter in this category only one time and must send the current year in their
exchange."

My first contest on cw mode and have been learning cw for four months now.

It's my last Rookie Roundup as a Rookie! I always have fun in this enjoyable event. Thanks for the
memories.

Lots of fun.  Bad propagation, and not a lot of stations out working us newbies, but good fun
none-the-less.  This is my first and last RR event, but with this experience I will definitely try
to work as a non-rook next year to keep the event lively.

Jamey (KC1ENX), Abby (AB1BY) and Mike (AB1YK) 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!   This is the last Rookie Roundup for Jamey and Mike.  Abby will be back next year.

I am not a rookie - submitted for record of participation - event is a great idea though I got in
only the last one hour. Heard few stations and did not CQ.

I was very impressed by the fists and operating techniques of the stations worked.  Kudos to K8PJK,
KM4LAO and KE0ODB. This is the first time for me working a Rookie Roundup
