The Great Colorado Gold Rush Logo It was 1859 before CW.  It was 1859 before spark.  It was 1859 before our time was taken away with "reality" television, DVD's, cell phones, and email.  It was 1859 before daylight saving time.  Take a moment to relax and enjoy the "real" world.  This mid-summer event might just build your WAS, DXCC, and provide you with some operating pleasure. Be a part of history!  Are you certified at 65 WPM?  Good for you.  Are you happy at 8 WPM?  That is just fine too.  Just get on and work someone!

My time this year was limited by having to play a tennis match, so only got on for the last 35 minutes. 73/72, John T. Laney III, K4BAI.
First time for this contest. Really thought the conditions would have been better, but did not hear that many other stations. Listened mostly, called CQ a few times, but thought it best to listen. Just not the best of conditions, but enjoyed listening. QRN was a bit of a problem as some major storms were coming across the midwest. Looked west the entire time as I did not hear many stations all all from the east or south when I listened on a dipole or vertical. So used the beam for all QSO's.

Dennis Berry, NU8S

Not but one logged station...I've gotta work on my cw speed!!!! Anyhow, here it is...might help NO2D. :)KF4KRV
NO2D, thx for sticking with me, I was having a hard time using this paddle today! I did not hear too many people, but less heard me, so I need to get a better signal out and become a better op. Thanks for fun I did have!

Thanks for sponsoring this contest.  It was a lot of fun. N5DGK
1st CGR for me and using a new loop antenna as well, got started about 20 minutes late but still made some good contacts. Signals were good, mostly Q5 and varied up to 20 db over S9 for K7IA also at 5 watts! Lots of fun, Tnx CQC
