Used this one to give newbie neighbor KC3KBE a taste of contesting. He seemed to enjoy it well enough. He certainly got a lot of experience of "the united, again, again!" and CQ-in-your-face. And fruitless CQing. I explained how being weak on phone is a bigger disadvantage than being weak on CW, and how in CW 160M tests I can get good rates (and distance) as fresh meat Saturday night. We started when he came over Saturday night about 0115Z. He was here until 04Z, and he did make a few QSOs, in addition to helping me copy some call signs. It was interesting to see the learning curve of things that experienced contesters take for granted. After he left I operated another 45 minutes and made about 15 more QSOs, none any easier than while he was here. When your most exciting QSO is getting through to K3PA (loud!), you know it's been a tough contest.
