Comments:

AD8B   OK   Individual
A week after I reported it and a week before SCR my electric utility company solved most of a severe power line noise problem. As always, it was great to hear some familiar calls and some new ones.
 
DL0ESA   DX   Non-School Club
Thanks for organising. It is a great initiative. We hope all the students had a great week and enjoyed their time on the air!
 
K0RHS   ND   School Club - Senior High
The school was closed Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. So this time it was only a two day event. We’ll see you in the spring.

K0UND   ND   School Club - College/University
Had a wonderful time participating in SCR this year. We used this opportunity to expose our new members to the hobby and gave them some practice behind the microphone. Operated 90 watts on a Yaesu FT-450 with a 4-element yagi.
 
K3TW   FL   Individual
"Activity was most evident on 20m."
 
K5LMS   TX   School Club - Middle/Intermed/JR High
K5LMS had record numbers of students participate this fall, and a number of them want to study for their Tech Class licenses. Our local newspaper, The Lampasas Dispatch Record, printed a story on K5LMS and SCR on Tuesday, Oct 25th with a nice color picture of our station in operation during SCR.
 
K7UAZ   AZ   School Club - College/University
Had a great time with the little time I had around a large course project due that week. Happy to put the Univ of AZ on the air. Looking forward to the Spring event. -Gary, N7GSG
 
K8TGR   OH   School Club - Senior High
This was our first experience for the club contesting. We just formed the club and are just getting started. Cannot wait until the next round now that we have some experience and are ready to roll with more QSOs. Was a great learning experience for the kids.
 
K9SOU   IN   School Club - Senior High
We had a fun time even though we had to use our backup OCF dipole that severely hampered our receive capability. We got a new IC-7300 on Thursday, so we were able to try it out. We are looking forward to February when hopefully our main antenna is back in the air.
 
K9THN   IN   School Club - Senior High
This was a great experience for our young operators in their first ever contest.
 
KC2KJN   NY   School Club - Middle/Intermed/JR High
Great contest again. Good band conditions from WNY. However, we always have a hard time filling out this form because the logging software does not output this data. We end up manually having to count contacts, states, multipliers, etc. I can't imagine how long this would take if we had 1000 contacts, or ran multi mode! What is wrong with just submitting the Cabrillo file?

KD2GXN   NY   School Club - Senior High
This was our first time in the school club roundup. In fact it was our first time on the air at East New York Family Academy at all!! We had a great time, students and teacher alike. We look forward to the next one in February.
 
KD8IWB   MI   Individual
Setup was a portable station using solar power. I was pleased to make contacts with the students and hope they will continue to enjoy amateur radio.

KD8NOM   OH   School Club - Elementary/Primary
Great SCR again! We had many new members on the air. After only 3 sessions of learning the 'lingo' and procedure they sounded like old pros! Looking forward to Spring SCR and meeting more schools on the air! Go D.E.A.R.S !!!
 
KF5EN   TX   Individual
Sure would have been nice to have had a few sunspots!
 
KM4HVE   TN   Individual
I didn't hear many schools on the air. Might have been conditions as I only found them on 20 and 40m. Made and logged contacts with the ones I heard.
 
KM4RE   GA   School Club - Elementary/Primary
This was our second time participating in SCR. Both times have been great experiences for our kids. Thanks for the time that everyone puts into this program. (This is my second submission. The first submission was mistakenly entered as the call sign used being KM4KPJ. That is my personal call sign, but we operated the station during the contest using our school's club call sign, KM4RE. I apologize for the inconvenience.)
 
N0DCM   MN   School Club - Senior High
N0DCM we are the Harbor City International High School Radio Club. We were formally the Duluth Children's Museum Radio Club. Many of our members go to the high school so we moved the club! As a new high school club we are excited for the challenge of competing with other schools in the nation.
 
N1HRK   RI   Individual
log should not be scored and only used to check other entrants' logs
 
ND8GA   OH   School Club - Senior High
Gilmour Academy really appreciates all the work by software authors, administrators, teachers, parents, radio clubs and students in making this School Club Roundup a great opportunity for schools!
 
W0QQQ   KS   School Club - College/University
This was the first School Club Roundup that our club has participated in for a few years. This was a great event and we were able to staff the station every day between four operators. Our club has seen a lot more interest and participation recently, and this was a wonderful event to get on the air and get our club some recognition on the bands.
 
W1YU   CT   School Club - College/University
W1YU returns to the HF airwaves for its first contest since Field Day 2008. We have been working to revive the Yale ARC this year and have found much enthusiasm on campus and we're having lots of fun! Watch us grow http://w1yu.sites.yale.edu/ or https://www.facebook.com/deW1YU/
Join our Tuesday night rag chew net on the W1WPD/R machine in Woodbridge CT via Echolink on the NEW-ENG conference node. Net starts at 8pm Eastern Time. 73 from your friends at Yale!!!
 
W4LID   KY   Individual
73!
 
W4LMS   GA   School Club - Middle/Intermed/JR High
The kids had a great time. For several it was their first time on the air, so "mike fright"
was an issue, but they quickly got over it. I was so glad to hear the support for young voices on
the air from fellow hams. Many in my group are choosing to get their licenses based on how well they were treated during SCR.
 
W4S   FL   School Club - Elementary/Primary
"More CW contacts are needed in the ARRL School Roundup."
 
W5/MM0LID   TX   Individual
Glad to talk with some of the youngsters at the schools.
Reminds me of when I first got my license back in 2002 as a youngster.
We need the young to keep the hobby alive.
Thanks ARRL and everyone involved with the clubs for making this possible.
 
W5AC   TX   School Club - College/University
The SCR was great fun this semester and we wish to thank everyone for the contacts! This semester we had 6 licensed and 2 unlicensed operators. Though it was tough at times due to the solar flares, past experience helped us continue on. Here's to the next SCR. 73 from Aggieland! Whoop!
 
W6YHS   CA   School Club - Senior High
This was our first event. It allowed for many new operators!
 
W8EDU   OH   School Club - College/University
This was fun! We trained many new contest operators and had many
SOAPBOX: first-time operators on the air. Used as an in-class exercise for our ham-based English seminar class, and represented a first contact opportunity for a good number of new hams.
 
W8MHS   MI   School Club - Senior High
Great event! Our students enjoyed!
 
W8UM   MI   School Club - College/University
Thanks everyone for the Q's. This contest was worked single op for about 4 hrs + 1 hr for equipment setup. So total 5hrs, over three days. Since this was just me operating, I'll take the time to share my thoughts.

Station: Yaesu + Heathkit linear ~500W SSB (amp), 100W (no amp) CW into SteppIR beam pointed into Texas (wrong way) most of the time. This set of Q's were my first on SSB. On the first day, it took me 20 minutes and a manual to figure out how to get power out of the transmitter, another 20 to learn that the mic gain needs to be turned quite high, and another twenty to figure out that 20m was on USB.
I used pencil and paper for the whole contest, then transferred it into cabrillo afterwards. My handwriting wasn't the best. Apologies for any missed calls.

That's what you get from a (slow!) CW op.

As always, thanks to the folks here running at W8UM for keeping the equipment maintained and ready for operation, thanks to those who answered my calls (and the patience from the lone CT1 station), and thanks to the people who are running SCR!

Note for SCR: Really, SCR and schools should encourage CW. Extra points for CW as an incentive for future competitions?
 
W9GRS   IL   School Club - Middle/Intermed/JR High
We only operated 2 days this time as we were focusing on our attempt at portable operations from Indiana. We will be using this as a springboard to get new students involved in operating during the ARRL Sweeps and for February SCR. We did log a new state with a school station with N0DCM in Minnesota! We only have 5 more states to go!
 
W9GRS/9   IN   School Club - Middle/Intermed/JR High
We tried something different this year and attempted our first mobile
operations. Our 8th graders went to Turkey Run S.P. in Indiana for a
geology field trip and brought the radio along to make some QSO's!
We used our Kenwood TS480, a Tarheel II antenna from Benny KC9GWD,
and 12-volt battery from Mike KC9HHT. After a little adjusting on the roof of the school bus, we were able to get the SWR down enough to put 7 schools into the W9GRS/9 log! It was a great experience for all of us!
 
W9UWP   WI   School Club - College/University
We had a lot of fun. Thanks to all the operators that contacted us!
 
WA4MSA   GA   School Club - Middle/Intermed/JR High
Lots of fun! We were limited to 3 days due to school schedule. We used a yagi at 65 feet which helped immensely. Team members were very excited and always wished to keep operating even when the bell to dismiss rang. Hope to put in more of an effort in the Spring SCR.
 
WD5IAD   MS   School Club - Middle/Intermed/JR High
Although our operating time was limited, we enjoyed the contest. There seemed to be fewer schools than usual.
 
WL7CXM   AK   School Club - Elementary/Primary
Conditions were rough along with equipment issues made this SCR a tough one for us from Alaska. Hopefully conditions will be better in the Spring. We still had fun trying and watching the SCR chat exchanges.
