MICHIGAN SOAPBOX

What crummy conditions on Saturday!  Good thing Sunday was OK but I didn't think there were as many Michigan stations as usual but definitely more CW stations.  I still think this is one of the best contests I enter.  Our club sure looks forward to it - K8AQM, Adrian ARC  No propagation on Saturday; Sunday improved in the U.P.  One remark was "What state is Delta County in?"  Thanks for the nice contest - KC8AS  Conditions in the beginning were very bad, but did pick up.  My biggest surprise was when K8AQM said to me with less than two minutes left, "I can't believe it's a new multiplier!"  I thought he was going to be another dupe; it also was at that time that I was almost sure I was the only station operating in Tuscola County - KG8J  Manu thanks to N9AG who put all of those counties on the air with his mobile set-up.  If anybody ever gets bored with receiving 5/9 reports during contests, I highly recommend QRP operation.  My log shows every signal strength from S1 thru S9! 73 - AA8M  I put in only about ten hours this year - W8PBO  First time I sent in logs.  Nice friendly contest.  Sure thought Crawford County would be more needed seeing as there's only six of us - WA8SJX  ENjoyed the QSO Party but the long skip the first day made it more like a WAS Party.  Thanks for putting on the party and looking forward to next year's event - W8URM  On behalf of all EMARC participants, I'd like to thank you for your efforts in producing a fine contest - AC8W  The QSO Party is my favorite contest and it was good to hear a lot of activity, even though propagation was miserable at the beginning of the party.  Thanks for a great contest and we will see youi next year.  73 - W8YY (WB8DQR)

OUT OF STATE SOAPBOX

As always a very nice QSO party.  If K0DEQ wasn't running around Arkansas this weekend, I would really have put my mind to chasing N9AG around Michigan.  I'm already looking forward to next year - W2EZ  Even though due to other commitments, I found only a little time to participate, I want to say thanks again for a fun contest.  This is my second year.  I looked forward to it and enjoyed getting in there when I could.  I must again compliment all Michigan operators for gentlemanly behavior - WB2HGI  One thing you learn during any QSO party is PATIENCE.  When you're using a Century 21 with 30 watts to a random wire you don't bang heads with the biggies, you wait in line till they're gone!  HI!  You people run a great contest and I had a pleasant time although my score is nothing to brag about.  My thanks to all who hung in there to give me a number.  Special thanks to W8VSK/m and N9AG/m8 for their mobile efforts and a "WELL DONE" to the contest committee - W2UAP  Where was W8MB? - W2XQ  There seemed to be much more activity than the other QSO parties.  Thanks for an exciting QSO party - WA3EOP  Band conditions were poor this year but activity wasn't.  A good contest.  Hope to be next year - K3NB  Where was 20 meters? - KQ4C  Really enjoyed this year's party.  Special thanks to N9AG/m8 for the many counties he provided.  See you again next year - NA4J  Thanks for a very good party.  I would have scored higher, but band conditions were not the best, HI - KA4LRN  Enjoyed party, but seemed few Michigan stations heard on 3.5, 7, 14 & 21 MHz.  More on SSB?  VHF?  Hope next party is better attended - W5NR  Great contest.  Many thanks to Scott, N9AG.  Keep up the good work.  73 - N5QQ  Hope better conditions next time - W6PRI  I enjoy QSO parties but didn't have time to operate this time.  Michigan has active QSO parties! - AK7J  Really enjoyed the small amount of time I was able to spend in the contest.  Plan to spend the weekend at it next year.  Keep up the good work.  I found the Michigan bits of information very interesting and a welcome change of pace from the routine contact exchange.  I am looking forward to next year's contest and intend to try for a tidbit of information from each voice contact I make - W8DN  Very nice contest.  Only wish I would have had more time to operate but had to get my tower up Sunday while I had the help, HI!  Had a ball, will be back next year, hopefully on eighty this time.  73 & thanks for the fun - KA8IGM  Need more novice activity - WD8NHN/N  ENjoyed the contest again this being my fifth year.  Much thanks to Scott, N9AG/m for giving out many rare counties.  You might pass this along to the SSB types that there are lots of multipliers waiting for them down the band.  See you all again next year - W3PYZ/8  I was surprised to see so many Michigan stations active.  I worked fifteen new counties leaving me with just fifteen for the entire state!  Hope conditions are better next year and I can be home both days - N9AUZ  I didn't get much air time in this one, 73 - KB9TI  It was a fun QSO party - especially with the little extra things thrown in, e.g. W8MAI (Mackinac Island), W8MB (club station) adn the Governors Achievement Award.  Hope to see you again next year - K9AYK/0  Thanks to Scott, N9AG for the mobile effort! - N0CKC  Lots of lightning storms in the Kansas City area all weekend.  See you next year - N0CLV  Fine QSO party - WA0NZA  Poor band conditions on fourty and a family picnic undid my plans to beat last year's total.  Maybe next year - KE0Y (ex. N0BNW)  I picked up three new counties so bsides having a little fun I also increased my county score.  Just need three more in Michigan to finish the state - VE3BHZ
