One memorable moment for me was a K2 station that graciously gave me his 
20M run frequency late Sunday afternoon.  Said he had worked 300 Q's on 
that frequency, but just got the call that the spare ribs were done!

Curiously that is one of the things I like about it.  Run rates were low 
enough Sunday afternoon that I was able to celebrate with various dx 
stations "Nice to see you again for N bands!"  It's especially fun when N=6
