I didn't hear many rookies on, and worked pretty much all that I heard.  There were a few good runs
of non-rookies, and I couldn't tell whether that was stations not understanding the difference
between CQ R and CQ RR, or just trying to keep boredom away (it was welcome).  There was lots of QSB
to fight against, which made things difficult.

I have a comment on the qualification of rookies. While I've been licensed about 10 years, it's only
in the last several months that I've began operating CW. Notably, many of the qualifying rookies
have significantly more experience than I do, and I'm still very much a newcomer to the mode.

It might be worth revising the definition of a rookie to include operators who made their first
contact on the mode within the last 12 months; this may broaden the pool of eligible rookies while
preserving the spirit of the rules.

This said, I did enjoy working the handful of rookies I did and think it's a great way to encourage
newer operators to get on the air.

This was great!  Even though conditions were not wonderful on 20/40 I met some other rookie
operators I can now listen for, and some great elmers as well. I'll be back for my final year to be
a rookie next December!  73

Was QRV for only the last few hours.  Worked every Rookie I heard calling.  Good luck to all
Rookies.  73, John, K4BAI.

Quiet bands this afternoon; Rookies were like unicorns.  Those I did work had nice fists.  Glad to
work a few '16s before they lose their eligibility next year.  73 de K5IX DAVE 76 TX

I made my first ever CW contacts during this event. Thank you for sponsoring an event easing people
into the world of CW.

My last year as a rookie.  It's been fun!

Always a fun contest. I do wish non-rookies responding to our CQ's would first look up what the
contest exchange is. I've several times had to tell them the exchange needed. My last year as a
rookie, I'll continue to hop on and help the newbies!

Dylan is my 13 year old grandson who is not yet licensed.  He was a guest operator at my shack for
the Rookie Roundup event.  I did not operate as I was just the control operator.  Therefore I could
not list him with an operator call.  Mike WB0SND

This was my first rookie roundup for cw.  Even though I am not a rookie, I enjoyed the 4 qso's.  I
only worked 1/2 hour out of the 6 hours.  I hope to participate again.  I worked the 12 days of
Christmas on ssb.  There are so many special events.
