K3WWP - Here it is the 20th of September, and I'm done with the challenge with no real effort put forth to master it. I didn't have to go out of the way to hunt for any letters. They just came naturally as I was getting my daily streak QSOs. All the calls came from my CQs except N2EI, PY2WC, RK6YY, and K6JSS/7. I won't even have to use any sprint QSOs from tomorrow evening. This was probably my easiest challenge since we eliminated contest QSOs from our challenges. This was also the fewest DX calls I've had in an alphabet challenge in quite a while now.
K1IEE - Had a good time with the challenge. Was pleased to be able to accomplish it under the old rules. Like all the NAQCC events its a great incentive to get on the air with QRP CW. Thanks, Dick
KD8HES - Glad I didn't have use any sprint QSOs! Nice challenge this month with lots of letters. Finished it with a week to spare.
W2JEK - Was a good challenge with all dx calls. Lots of fun. 72 and 73 Don Younger W2JEK #1135
N8XMS - Well, for many parents "back to school" is a celebration of getting rid of the kids for a few hours each day, but for teachers like me it's just a ton of work! I only had 3 QSOs in the first 2 weeks of the month. My available time picked up a little bit for the end of the month but it was still "too little, too late." As always, it was a lot of fun, but I only managed to complete 9 words.
KF7EST - My first real attempt at an alphabet challenge and only started after this month's Sprint (used my 18 letters too). All QSO's made with K-1 at 5W into Vertical. Was very close to completing several more words and with a few more calls could have done a lot better. Thanks for the fun challenge.
VE3FUJ - At the end of the game I was still short 3 x i and 4 x H's. I were renovating the shack during September for more space within the 4 walls, and didn't get as much Air time as I wanted, or obviously needed. You just can't tear the shack apart and have Air time both at the same time, at least I couldn't think of a way, with the necessity of having the antennas disconnected to do the job. Looking forward to the Oct mW challenge. Brion
PA7PYR - This was not my easiest challenge . Lots of Fun and I won't even have to use any sprint or contest QSOs.
This is the month children dread and harried parents welcome with open arms. It's 'Back To School' month. So this traditional alphabet-type challenge deals with terms relating to the sad/happy event.
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 QSOs allowed except as described in the following paragraph. QSOs must be made using CW and QRP.
NEW!! - We are now allowing QSOs from our NAQCC Sprints to be used as follows: You may get a maximum of 1/5 or 20% of the letters you need from NAQCC Sprint QSOs. Since there are 89 letters this month, that means you may get (rounded off) 18 letters from our NAQCC Sprint.
For reference, the following 23 letters are contained somewhere in the words:
A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P R S T U W X 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:
