Soapbox: K3WWP - All my Canadian QSO's came from 4 contests - NAQP, NAQCC Sprint, NAQCC 160M Sprint, CQWW 160M. More or less it was a matter of the challenge coming to me rather than me hunting out VE stations, although I did make a little extra effort to work the VE's in those contests when I heard them. It will be interesting to see the results as they come in.
W9CC - These QSO's came from our regular Sprint and our 160 Meter Sprint and the CQ WW 160 Meter Contest. 73, Larry
KD2MX - 25 of my total qsos were on 160M. 160 is a great band. Lots of room too! Five qsos on 80m & 1 on 40m. All contest QSOs, Spartan Sprint, Flying Pigs, NAQP, NAQCC 160, CQ160.
W9ILF - I enjoyed the challenge and always love having a QSO with a Canadian station, but just didn't hear many this month. I had a lot of QSO's for the month QRP so I guess maybe I wasn't looking in the right place. Still it was another fun challenge!
A few months ago we had a sprint with a special award for the most Canadian QSO's. It turned out to be quite popular and many of our Canadian members entered one of our sprints for the first time. Let's see what happens with a month long challenge involving Canadian stations.
Coincidentally, Canadian hams will be using special CG and CF prefixes during January on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the first voice broadcast of Reginald Fessenden. There is an award connected with the special prefixes also. For more info see www.callsign.ca.
