Yes, we had some new HF operators, as well as seasoned veterans and all levels in-between. Our event was not a contest, but a chance for operators and stations across the country and globe to celebrate 100 years of WWV. We're all exhausted after close to a year of planning, government shutdowns, and laying the foundation for what turned out to be a lot of work, but great fun and a team effort of nearly 100 operators and staff. Everyone involved learned from each other and shared in the spirit of ham radio. After an incredible inauguration, I'm sure those newbies are feeling more confidence and more welcome into ham radio.
