It was interesting working the SCR as an individual after 16 years as a school control operator. Through the week, I only worked schools ... using the hunting and pecking method. Heard some very competent student operators ... particularly at K9SOU, KD8NOM, KM4RE, and N4SMS. In all honesty, though, I'm a little disappointed in the number of adult operators I heard creating / running pileups under a school call (many sounded like seasoned contesters). This event is an opportunity for students to shine ... not for adults to run up a score. That said, I have to congratulate all the students (and their control ops / advisors) on their participation in this event. Listen to the enthusiasm in a student's voice and you know he / she has discovered the fun, joy, and magic of ham radio. The magic lives on!
