Not much time to operate, and not many signals heard.  Wish there were more!

Fun idea. I used 20m and prop was some of the worst I've seen it since I became a ham.

Checklog, please.  Prop seemed to be terrible.  My intent for this contest was to practice with my
new RTTY setup and to help the rookies.  The NH station (N1FD, OP Abby) was almost 599 and the DX
station (I4) was almost as strong, amazingly enough. KX3 to a long wire.
72's, y'all!

I am 8 years old and just got my technician license.  I can only use RTTY on ten meters.  Ten meters
is really bad.

All of the rookies enjoyed the chance to work RTTY.  Contest was slow - would be nice to see more
rookies and non-rookies on RTTY.

Conflicts usually limit my operating time. While "fine tuning" some RTTY software, I heard Abby,
N1FD, calling CQ, and gave a call using a KX3 with only 3 watts output. A contact resulted. I was
first licensed in 1965, and usually pass out contacts during these events. I feel it is important to
help out the "newbies", and hope to be on again.

band conditions were dismal.
heard one station in Europe and one in Hawaii at the same time - NOTHING else heard at the time. 
Strange conditions for sure

I sure wish there was more activity! Calling CQ ROOKIES for a LONG time with no responses is
discouraging.
