It is July and the popularity of the fine art of barbecue is right up there with parades and fireworks. Smoke, flames and sizzling meat, a real crowd pleaser. Of course, not everyone is a super chef and there have been some flaming, crash and burn outings that are better forgotten, but that is all part of the fun. Barbecue is a team sport with no shortage of tools, gadgets and gimmicks and everybody is willing to share their hints and opinions with anyone who will listen. So, invite the gang over, grab some steaks and ribs, a few dogs and burgers, fire up that charcoal, make some smoke and have a great barbecue. Happy 4th and save me a burger !
The first day of the month 0000Z through the last day of the month 2400Z
Just make ALL these words from calls of stations you work subject to the General Challenge Rules. (Any spaces in the phrases should be ignored. For example the challenge phrase "INVERTED V ANTENNA" should be treated as if it is the single word "INVERTEDVANTENNA.")
SHRIMP ON THE BARBY
BABY BACK RIBS
DOGS AND BURGERS
The 88 total letters contain these 20 different letters : A B C D E G H I K L M N O P Q R S T U 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 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 the 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
NEXT - NF8M, W8REI, N8XMS, K9EYT
(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 in the horizontal format shown above to:
E-mail: (You must type that address into your email program.)
Subject must read: (your call) NAQCC (month) Challenge
For example: K3WWP NAQCC February Challenge
All entries must be RECEIVED before the 10th of the following month at 2400Z.

N8XMS: This might be close to a record time for me to complete an alphabet challenge. Usually I come down to the last few days of the month but this time I finished by the 15th. Band conditions have been pretty poor but I have had more free time than usual to get on the air.
AA4NN: To my chagrin I had completed the challenge using July letters for words in the August challenge!! Oh well - using calls I had already made I finished the correct challenge in due time with help from 9A1TESLA and SQ65HSC. After all I had 26 QSOs using the bug, the K3, 5W and the amazing Force12 2-el Yagi.
WV8DH: Another fun challenge. Running either IC-746Pro or YouKits HB-1B into either a ZS6BKW at 32 ft or an EndFedZepp sloper. 72/73 Dave
WA2FBN: Tough conditions this month, but managed to complete the challenge earlier than usual for me. LNR LD-5 at 5w into end fed antenna. 72 Ken
N3MLB: With a back injury taking me of the action for four days, I thought for sure I wouldn't be able to meet this months challenge. The last three days I've been working my tail off in the worst possible conditions. And yet, QRP prevailed. A station on the island of Isle of Man couldn't believe I was 4W. He immediately came back and said IMPRESSIVE.
K1YAN: Tuning through the HF bands and bemoaning the lack of propagation, while hearing just a lot of static. Switched to 6M and worked five quick QSOs on a little E skip opening. You never know where the propagation gods will hide that brass ring.
K3WWP: Took longer than usual to finish this one. A few reasons of which one I will mention. The overabundance of the letter S. It took until the 28th to get the final S from Dl1NKS. It was a lot of fun as usual though. I really enjoy making up my little paper chart and filling in things with my logging pen as I log the QSO in my paper log, then add the letters from the call to the challenge words. It's kind of fascinating watching the letters fill in as I go along with the pen. I understand we now have a computer program that does all the thinking for our alphabet challenges. That's not for me. I'll take using my brain and my fingers any day. Computers are good aides for sure, but I get scared when they start taking over everything that we can do just as well with our brains, probably even better than they can. Now that's a real "Soapbox" message for sure.
K1IEE: A great word challenge. I really thought that the letter B would prevent me from completing all the words. Spent a lot of time focused just on that one letter. Thanks to all 73 Dick
VE3FUJ: It was a nice challenge, however I was short on R's and I's, and totally devoid of E's and L's. Just could not find any of those. I wonder what the rarest letters in American and Canadian Prefixes and suffixes might be. Brion 3011
K8RJW: Well this was my first Challenge so what could be more appropriate...one word complete! I will be back for more!! Just a shout out to N8XMS for his work in creating the 'spreadsheet applications" and to WB5RVZ for the "web tool application" methods of tracking/reporting. Being an avid 'ever learning programmer' myself I know how much work went into this. Way to go guys!!! (...my first 'reported' challenge. Due to my own stupidity I thought the Challenges each month were an 'all or nothing' event. I didn't realize that you could get credit even for one word. [I did say my own stupidity didn't I])
NF1U: Band conditions were really tough for me in July. Took just about the entire month to acquire all the letters i needed, shamefully begging folks to meet me on frequency for QSO in some cases. Hopeing August will be better.
KE2YK: I sure do enjoy the July challenge as this is my first attempt at it. I started mid July and needed one more call with R to complete the challenge. Best of all it gives me a reason to fire up the KX3. Thanks for putting these challenges together. Better luck next month! 72 Gary
W2JEK: WAS A GOOD CHALLENGE. LAST LETTER NEEDED WAS 'R'. POOR BAND CONDITIONS TOWARD THE END OF THE MONTH. LOTS OF FUN JUST THE SAME. 72 AND 73 DON YOUNGER
