K2HPV - Just celebrated my 85th birthday last month.
N8XMS - Last month I really had a hard time finding all of the letters that I needed for the challenge. This month it seemed like almost every call that I worked had several letters that I could use. I am already done with more than half of the month left! It was especially fun to end with ES1TU - four useful letters and a very nice DX contact!
K7ROH - Enjoyed the challenge .. My first one .. Looking forward to the April challenge .. 73's Tom
K3WWP - I didn't think that last "T" would ever come. I got all the letters except that one "T" by March 10. Didn't get the "T" until today - March 20. Oh, I worked several T's in contest QSO's - PS2T, JT5DX, and so on, but as you know, contest QSO's don't count in challenges any more. I was just about to give up, but tried a quick tune across 15 late this afternoon and there was HI3TEJ at 10 over S9 calling CQ. I tried him at 930mW but no luck, so went to 5 watts and got him easily. There's no doubt in my mind that eliminating contest QSO's has really made our challenges more challenging, but not impossible by any means.
K3WWP (2nd Round) - I was impressed by the all-DX challenge that W2JEK submitted, and thought I'd see if I could match him. I listed all my non-contest DX QSO's for the month, and before I got through 3/4 of them, I was done. Of course this wasn't a separate effort from my regular challenge and I did duplicate some QSO's from that one, but hey, it's only for fun anyway.
VE3FUJ - This challenge was certainly ----- challenging. Brion
PA1B - Before I started I made a list, showing the numbers of each letter needed. I started on March 8 and on that day I made 10 QSO's and got already about 30 letters of the words to form. At the end of the challenge when I still needed a few letters. Then I only made QSO's for the letters I needed and with special stations. With the last letter, the Challenge could be over at any moment, but getting the "N" lasted for a few days, giving many special stations. hi When signals are strong, I reduce my power. So I made two QSO with more than "1000 Miles per Watt", just by reducing to 500 mW. With the FT-817 on 500 mW, the Magic Distance is just 500 miles. Curious? Then Google (or Bing - K3WWP) with PA1B QRPp , to read how to make more than 1000 Miles per Watt QSO's. I really enjoyed the March Challenge.
W2JEK - It Was a fun challenge. Used only dx call signs. Glad to see the sun making spots again. 72 and 73 Don Younger W2JEK #1135
KB1PBA - Seems like everyone answers when I call them with my PFR-3A at 5W and simple doublet. (Sure - cause it's CW, the most efficient of all ham radio modes. You don't need QRO when using it - K3WWP)
K1IEE - Nice to hear the bands improving every week. Had many QSO's on 15 and 10, some on the WARC bands. Had fun and ready for the next challenge. 73 Dick
KQ1P - Well I didn't complete the challenge, but gave it try. I realized that I make many contacts in contests. Take those QSO's out and I was light on C's and D's (unlike my report card once upon a time). John
This is the month almost all of the USA goes from Standard to Daylight Savings time once again. So this traditional alphabet-type challenge deals with terms relating to time.
The first day of the month 0000Z through the last day of the month 2400Z
Simply make all the words in the list below from the calls of stations you work to master the challenge. NO contest or sprint QSO's allowed. QSO's must be made using CW and QRP.
For reference, the following 18 letters are contained somewhere in the words:
A C D E H I K L M N O P R S T U W Y
You can use each letter in a call TWICE. For example you could use K3WWP for 2 K's, 4 W's, and 2 P's.
Subsequent QSO's with the same station cannot be used for additional letters. For example, no matter how many times you work K3WWP, you can only use his call for 8 of the letters in the words.
See the Alphabet Tutorial page for an excellent way to track any and all of our alphabet type challenges.
A certificate goes to anyone making all the words.
PARTICIPATION AWARD AND WEB LISTING:
To get a Participation Point and to be listed on the web site you must make at least one word and report your results.
For your report, list the words you made and the station used for each letter in the word. The number of stations listed must be the same as the number of letters in each word, even though you use the same station for more than one letter as in:
WORD - K3WWP, N2OD, WA8REI, N2OD
Note how N2OD is listed for both the O and D.
You may also include comments about the challenge. Please preface any comments you want posted with "SOAPBOX:" so we will know what you want posted and what is private.
