    Depends on your category! I saw someone with a single contact in the top ten in one contest. I've taken first place in another with just a few contacts.

    we have some of the top contesters in the country active in all these contests. SAN DIEGO Section is always well represented. Look for W6Yi or NX6T in ANY contest. The SAn Diego DX club members LIVE to Contest and were even represented in the WRTC contest

    I contest because Northern New York is a very underrepresented ARRL section. When my elmer told me about the thrill of making as many contacts as possible in a short period of time, I had a blast doing it the first time when the 2012 Sweepstakes rolled around, as I felt that Field day was a drag to me because of working with others, as I feel in control of things. However, this year was a little different as I worked with Phil on the CW and SSB sweepstakes and it felt good to mentor another ham into the thrill of the contest

    I've tried it...

    Was amazed that with no international language skills the 'Q' code still said it all!

    My IC-7000 REC/PLAY for messages does automate the call/report process nicely...

    ;)
