So you think that you are a serious sports fan? If it is sports, you got it covered, because you have about every sports media there is piped into your lair. You have replaced the EZ Boy chair in the TV room twice this year and it is only July. Your friends say you are "the go to guy" for sports info and trivia. OK heavy hitter, here is the deal - just match these words and the sport they come from. Good thing you have all that sports coverage, because not all of these are everyday sporting events around here.
Just in case you need a little help we will post the answers in next month's newsletter.
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 call signs of stations you work to master the challenge. NO contest or sprint QSO's allowed. QSO's must be made using CW and QRP.
These are the matching sports in no particular order:
Golf, Ski Racing, Skeet Shooting, Curling, Hurling, Soccer, Cricket, Figure Skating, Rugby, Swimming, Horse Racing, Boxing
The 82 total letters contain these 21 different letters: A B C D E F G H I K L M N O P R S T U Y Z
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 General Rule #5 for more details on what callsign letters can be used.
See the Alphabet Tutorial page for an excellent way to track any and all of our alphabet type challenges.
A certificate and Participation Point go to everyone making all the words and submitting their report before the deadline.
A Participation Point goes to everyone making at least 1, but not all words and submitting their report before the deadline.
A choice of an item made by master woodworker Gregg WB8LZG as shown on our prizes page here goes to someone selected via a random drawing from all who participate and submit a report for this month's challenge. A person can only win once, then they become ineligible for future drawings.
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.
Send your results as text to: (Please be sure to use the horizontal layout as shown above.)
You must type that address into your email program.
Subject must read: (your call) NAQCC (month) Challenge

K3WWP:I was disappointed not to make the European Chapter challenge last month for only the second one ever that I missed. So this month, I determined to work hard to finish both early. I made it through the Sports challenge on the 5th using all DX stations, and I need just four zeroes to finish the European one. Conditions were up and down the first 5 days of March so far or I might have finished even sooner than this. I must admit although I am a "moderate" sports fan, I could only figure out about half the sports. I knew I had heard Albatross, and I spent almost as much time trying to recall it as I did to complete the challenge. I finally did though. I won't list the ones I knew so as not to spoil the fun for others. Thanks Gary for a great challenge. Thanks all the DX stations who provided letters. CU for next month's challenge.
K9OSC: Conditions were good and lots of stations around. Another fun Challenge. See you next month.
PA0XAW: Some letters (the letters T and U) were difficult to find; tnx for a nice challenge. See you next month, 73, Age
J37T: THIS WAS MY FIRST ATTEMPT AT THE CHALLENGE. I THOUGHT I WOULD TRY IT FROM MY DX QTH AS I HAD LOTS OF TIME TO OPERATE. IT TOOK 12 DAYS AND 60 QSOs. REALLY ENJOYED THE EFFORT AND WILL TRY SOMETIME FROM HOME.
K1IEE: With the bitter cold and many snowy day's here in Maine this was a great time for the long challenge. Got plenty of operating time in. 73 to all, Dick
KF7WNS: Another fun challenge. I got some good stations this month that helped out alot. 72, Gary
DH0DK: Ready for a new game. Thanks to all 72 Ben #7576
VE3FUJ: I had a total of 14 Qso's for March but were missing a lot of vital letters Hence only One Word. Brion 3011
N8XMS: With the first two weeks of the month taken up by extensive travel and little operating I really didn't have much of a chance on this one. Nevertheless a "valiant" attempt was made and a lot of fun was had. - 73 Paul
NQ2W: Nice challenge...might have a few new band-countries for DXCC in the mix of stations worked. Thanks to everyone involved in putting these together. I'm going to try something different next month...72, Will
PA7PYR: A lot of SES calls and all stations with 2watt.Tnx Rien NAQCC 4443
WH6YH: This was the Second Monthly Challenge as I started my first in February but but got sick and missed the submission deadline. I failed to get my March Sprint results in as I didn't have a logging program and missed that dealine figuring out how to use the free version they recommend online. Lesson learned on the following Sunday deadline!!! Those issues aside, I enjoyed this event and the Sprint immensely. Lets hope I can get April done early!
W2JEK: THIS CHALLENGE WAS A LOT OF FUN. AM LOOKING FORWARD TO THE NEXT ONE. 72 AND 73 DON YOUNGER #1135
