AB1QB   Rookie   NH
Great Contest! Too bad more bands were not open.
AC2IK   Rookie   NY
OMG its hell getting old, sorry abt the errors, this info is correct for AC2IK, there is no AC4IK that was an input error. I know your laughing. 73 really this is the last one 1:34p 8/20/12
K7RDG   Rookie   AZ
KB3VNH   Rookie   PA
Almost no one was on the air.
This submission is much more inconvienent than other contests where thy have a Cabrilo checker.
KD0QLW   Rookie   MO
This was the first operation by the St Charles High School Radio Club. The club will have its own equipment in place and on the air in time for School Club Roundup - see you there! 73,
Daniel, Ellen, and Ward
KF5PWJ   Rookie   TX
Great contest. Learned a lot about my antenna performance.
KF5STR   Rookie   TX
Unfortunately, the SFI was on a downward trend and 15m had virtually no RTTY activity at our location, so we worked every RR RTTY station we could hear on 20m! We found scant few new contacts the last hour of operation. Special thanks to Gene, W5DDW, for the use of his fantastic station and for being the best Elmer a Ham could have!
KJ4VTH   Rookie   VA
Just realized I am still a Rookie and so I jumped in for my first Rookie Contest. Lots of fun.
KJ6NGF   Rookie   CA
A lot of fun and first time using RTTY. Will want to do it again sometime soon.
KJ6PUN   Rookie   CA
I really enjoyed my first chance to operate a digital mode in a real contest and apprecaited the coaching from Joanna (K6YL), Rebar (N6DB), and Rick (N6DQ).
KJ6PUO   Rookie   CA
Thanks to Joanna (K6YA), Rebar (N6DB), and Rick (N6DQ) for the excellent coaching and access to the wonderful Stanford station.
KJ6YEB/W6YX   Rookie   CA
This was my first contest. I really enjoyed the experience, and I would like to thank Joanna K6YL and Rick N6DQ with helping me with the mechanics of the contest. Not to mention the hard work of Rebar N6DB for setting up the station on a beautiful northern California Sunday morning.

Also I want to thank the other members of the team, Peter KJ6PUN and his dad Keith KJ6PUO. Thanks guys!

Overall, this was a great initiation into contesting. I would highly recommend this type of contest to all those new to ham radio.
KK4BJV   Rookie   AL
Conditions were rough stateside but great for DX!! Was able to work 6W (Senegal), J6 (St Lucia), and ZD7 (St. Helena) for new DX. Plus I (Italy), PY (Brazil) and HC2 (Ecudor) were booming. Hope everyone had as much fun as I did, 73 de KK4BJV.

KK4EVI   Rookie   SC
We only operated for three hours from the club EMCOMM trailer, but it was a great introduction to digimodes and the trailer capabilities. Another veteran brought his WinLink2000 kit and demonstrated HF email.
KK4JSJ   Rookie   KY
HC2/AL1O is a German On DX-Pedition in Ecuador. I counted this as a unique entity of Ecuador.
KS5A   Nonrookie   AZ
Humm, starting to wonder who the real "Rookies" were! An awful lot of great RTTY ops out there. Superb job! I hope to see all of you in the next RTTY contest.
KU4V   Nonrookie   NC
First Time - Interesting. Too bad there was not more participation.
Glad to be able to pass out a few QSO's
Needs to be better suggestions for difference in CQ header for Rookie vs Non-Rookie so OM do not waste time calling other OM. Some rookies used "[call] (11) CQ" to set them apart, I used "CQ ROOKIES KU4V (78)"; others you had to guess, then call them anyway.

I will participate again!
KX9X   Nonrookie   CT
Always fun working the Rookies in this event. I made my station available to Becky, W1BXY for a short time and she got some experience with RTTY. She's taking the General class in a couple weeks, so hopefully you'll hear her on 20 meters soon.

N1EN   Rookie   CT
Didn't have much time to play this afternoon. Figured that I'd try to hand out a few CT's in between a sked and a net.

I'll admit that I did feel a little guilty about being a Rookie with a 1×2 call, but getting D64K on first call on a couple of bands, without needing to correct my call makes up for that guilt. :)

N4LWR   Rookie   FL
As a new HAM this was a great way to work a new mode of the hobby.
N4MEP   Rookie   GA
Score may be low, but it was fun.
N6HE   Nonrookie   CA
GREAT way to introduce "Rookies" to HF and RTTY! I enjoyed it.

I am a NON-Rookie entry- Calling CQ R (vs CQ RR) seemed to have people calling me who were licensed pre-2010, and therefore non-rookies, and as I read the rules, these QSOs don't count. But I am submitting what happened and hope ARRL can straighten it out - wouldn't be the first time I misread rules...

Thanks for a great concept!

Would have spent more time in the chair but our club had its annual picnic today and they were in the Lighthouse/Lightship weekend, as well. But it was fun while it lasted....

Thanks again!

N7SMI   Rookie   UT
Conditions were very poor and few operators online. It would probably provide a much better experience to shorten the roundup to maybe 3 hours. Calling CQ for 4 hours and averaging one response every 10 minutes is not terribly fun. Thank you for organizing the RR and I look forward to the next one.
NX8G   Nonrookie   OH
It was difficult to call CQ and get only rookies to respond.
W2HAO   Rookie   DX
I tried and tried. I just couldn't get through to the mainland today. I spotted many RR QSO's, but I just could not be heard. Maybe next time. It was fun trying.
W4MLB   Rookie   FL
This input replaces the earlier input.
Julia's call was added to the list of calls. She was the primary operator.
WA1N   Nonrookie   NH
Great conditions and it was good to see a lot of returning rookies from last year!
WM9I   Rookie   IL
Corrected score with correct Operator Call. Great Fun and my 1st Roundup!
