SOAPBOX:

WB4OMM - My G5RV is down for replacement, so only worked 20M tonight using the beam - and it was hot for the first 50 minutes! Great signals and very little noise. Nice change! Band died at 50 mins in, so I quit - I hope 20m stays like this and better in the coming months! Thanks to all that worked me, will look for you next month with new wire for 40/80! 72, Steve WB4OMM

N8XMS - It has been several months since I was able to work a sprint, and even though I only had about 30 minutes available tonight, it was great to be back. 73

K4KBL - Truly weird conditions this evening with several in state contacts on 40 meters. Only could work about an hour but had fun. Got to QSO with my buddy Aaron K4ARY !!

KD0V - Not the best evening here in southern Minnesota. At 0023Z the county was put under a tornado warning. I was called into action as part of the county emergency management team. After that noise level on 40M was S7 to S9. Called it quits early. See you all net month. Take care!

KE9DR - Looks like 20 is trying to open. Quit early, still had fun Thanks to all. 73 Bert KE9DR

VE3DQN - Good signals tonight! 20m stayed open for 30 minutes for us. Even got N0TA in CO on 40m! Tnx!

K3EMS - 40 meters was in pretty good shape this evening. Had the "yips" tonight- if you got an extra dit or two I apologize.

W4HH - Gud condx on 40, lots of signals. CU next month

WG8Y - Hi all, Started 40 minutes late. Did S&P for an a little over an hour. 20m was open here in NC. Worked John,K4BAI and heard a few others but went to 40M which was full of gud signals. Did S&P for a few more and pulled the Big Switch. Long busy day here. 72 all From N.C. Mark WG8Y

WB1GYZ - We tease impossibly weak sigs from the ether and call it fun. The insanity of it... and yet I'll be back next month to do it again.

KK4ITX - My first Sprint !! Lost several to QSB but that's part of the game. Thanks for the fun.

N2CN - 40 was hopping tonight... not too shabby with an indoor dipole.

K3RLL - 1960 E.F. Johnson Speed-X bug keying K3 to 31' wire up and over garage. (HOA) Plenty of sprinters but difficult to hear on 40m this evening for some reason. Thanks for the skilled ops who heard me. 72/73 ... Don

N8HWV - Great band condx on 40 and some even on 20. Fun.

KC5F - 1 on 20m, 3 on 80m. 40m was the workhouse tonight. Thanks, all!

K5WX - 20 meters was nice for the first hour. But, 40 meters was very noisy here tonight. Good fun!

KN1H - Visiting family in Arizona this month. Set up KX2, pocket-size 12V battery and Electrovoice 605U straight key feeding a clandestine 30 up and 30 out wire antenna in a horrible, noisy, HOA location. Operation was doomed to failure but, thanks to John, N0TA, there was one QSO for the log!

N0TA - 40M pretty good except for the band of thunderstorms across the mid US. Worked 2 non-members. Thanks for the Q's. K3, doublet, Amplidan, NAQCC Sprint Logger.

K2DEP - Been a while. Had lots of fun. Bands getting much better. 72 to all.

AA2MX - Good conditions, lots of activity. Thanks for the sprint.

AI6SL - Noisy bands at my QTH. Lost several stations in the noise. Never heard anything on 80m.

K4KRW - I got contacts on 3 bands. Thank you to N8LA for picking me out of the noise. Best signal I heard was from KJ4R next door in SC. Thanks everyone! Most fun I've had in a sprint in a while. Richard - K4KRW

KN2G - ran the buddipole, 817, and Harbor Freight battery pack from the gazebo outside the house. Warm, no mosquitos and fun.

AB8RL - Got in contest very late - used my new mcHF xcvr on battery power for the first time in a Sprint. Performed very well to a vertical antenna. 40 was in very good shape.

K2CWM - 20M was pretty good tonight, so made most of my contacts there. Used my old IC-703 with MAXSET set to 5 watts, running off a power supply turned down to 12v. Used my little American Morse Straight Key and Butternut vertical (pictured on my QRZ page), Always enjoy these sprints.

KD9EBS - Greetings: Great conditions on 20 and 40! "Youkits" HB-1B, Running 5 Watts into attic dipole at 25 feet The key is J38. 72/73

AG4CC - Thanks for the Q's. 20m was in good shape, but not many there.

W1BLU - Fun as always. 40M was hopping and then quieted down. TU NF5U fer your patience! 73 to all.

N4ARY - Well I had a good time with a few exceptions. I'm always happy to work such a good event with some great ops. I don't want to get preachy, but you gave me a soapbox so I'm going to use it. Three times tonight I had stations calling CQ over me. Twice was from the same station who had worked me on the freq I was running already. I was surprised that another member and QRPer would do that. I know that QRP stations can be hard to hear and it happens to us all, but please, listen before calling CQ and send "QRL ?" Hope to catch you all next month. 72

KJ4R - Had a few stations that I could not copy due to QRN and QSB. My apologies to those that I could not hear. Good to see 20M open some. KX3 and Vibroplex bug to EFHW. 73 to all.

N7QR - 55th sprint - KX3 @ 5 Watts, QRPGuys paddle programmed for straight key into Buddistik strapped to railing of 4th floor balcony in Park Ridge IL only for an hour and a half. 40 was good. Much easier sprinting from the Midwest compared to the Westcoast. Russ

N4MJ - Fun evening. Tnx to all participants. 73 de n4mj//glenn

ND1J - Static horrible at my location. Rough pulling out callsigns tonight. Really rough. Fun time, though.

K9QEW - Operated two bands (40 and 20 meters) 40 meters had high noise level.(S4-S5) Use my new IC7300, J38 key to a 4btv. 72/73s & Stay Tuned Daryl

NC5G - Been a long time since I participated. Band conditions not very good in Texas tonight(lots of QRN), but it was fun to participate again. Looking forward to doing it again.

W2JEK - HAD A GOOD NIGHT. 40 WAS THE BEST BAND BUT GOT A FEW ON 80. BEST DX WAS N0TA IN COLORADO. GOOD CONTEST 72 73 DON W2JEK

K8NGW - 20M then 40M kept me so busy that I never made it to 80M! Less noise and fading than the past few months made for a very enjoyable evening.

VA3NU - Stayed on 40M tonight and signals picked up as it got darker outside. Several signals were a true 599. Lots of QRM in the house, don't ask Hi Hi. Larry 72

K2OID - 40M was absolutely fantastic tonight for a change.

AC5XK - Thanks everyone!

KE5YUM - I only made one contact in my allotted time for the sprint. With my limited antenna setup, I was thankful for that. See you next month. Terry

KC3MIO - I thought 20 would be in play and I heard N0TA just before the start. but I couldn't manage any contacts and turned to 40 which is where I made all but one. When 40 got sparse in the last 15 minutes, I tried 80 but nothing but weird noise. After much effort, I copied KC1DVT in ME but couldn't get past that. I noticed that the SFI was at 65 just after the sprint. Thanks for the contacts and welcome to new members. Thanks to NAQCC and hoping for good conditions for the Milliwatt Sprint next month.

WI8J - Worked WB4OMM on 20M and the rest on 40M. A great time again with the IC-705. Thanks to N0TA for squeezing me in at the final buzzer. Thanks for the contacts! 72

W1VKE - My first NAQCC QSO. I will be participating more in the future as my CW improves.

KD3CA - Only managed to work a few minutes in the last half hour. Was some QRN but some very good signals. Heard a 3 land station calling CQ NA who was 599 plus 10 over ? 73 to all Don

VE3GNU - Stayed on 40---band seemed to be 'short' tonight with generally weak signals at this QTH. Thanks to all for participating. Jupiter @5 W. and Begali paddle--and always looking forward to the next sprint. 73---Ernie

WB8LZG - Hello Fellow Sprinters ! Fired up the FT1200 on solar pwr,5W to diploes. Great to hear some action on 20M. Got 6 QSOs there. Stns to the south were LOUD. Stns to the west were weak. Strange condx here. W2SH answered me, and when I came back to him, he was gone. ?? 40M was very noisy here, but still plenty of stns to work. Also propagation was short. No west coast. Went to 80 to finish up. Nice to work Frank,NF8M, as we usually don't work each other due to close proximity, and old pal Louis N8LA too. Nice to hear several old friends as well as a couple newcomers. Sorry to a couple of u who tried to call me es I couldn't make out the entire call. (better luck next time) Looking fwd to FD and the MW sprint next month. 73 Gregg WB8LZG 1444

KA2KGP - A good nite for a sprint, even 20m. was open for a while. 40 & 80 were good here in WNY. Rig: IC-7000 at 5w. into G5RV up 25 ft. w/ old WWII German Junkers straight key. 73

WT4U - Thought this would be the month for 20m, but only RBN was hearing me. 80 was noisy. 40 was busy, though propagation could be weird. Hardest I worked was to pull out Karen AG4CC, but as soon as the QSO was done her signal went to 579. Fun as always. Brian WB4IT heard us on 40m and sent in an application so he can play next time.

K4BAI - Good conditions on all three bands. Amazingly short skip on 20 with QSO with AA2MX in adjoining NC. 40M was very active. 80M was OK, but only three NA spriters worked were also in GA. Did hear AA2MX in NC working one of the other GA stations. Thanks for all QSOs. 73, John, K4BAI.

WB9HFK - An evening of QRP Fun! I stayed on 40M for the entire Sprint. QRN levels a bit high. Fun to work many regulars and some new members! See everyone next month! 72, Mark WB9HFK

N2JJF - Lots of activity tonight on 20M. Happy to try out my hamstick dipole on 20 ft mast.

K3JZD - K3JZD - Seemed like a good turnout. 40m was both long and short - made it ideal. 80m had a lot of QSB - I was only there briefly. KX3 - 5w - 40m Dipole - 80m 107' EFRW Jody - K3JZD

W2AFE - Deployed to Quarry Lakes park in Fremont CA with Kx2 and AT-1 on 20 meters.

VE9BEL - Heard many stations, but they coud not hear me. Great fun again! 73 Bernard

K4JPN - Started out good on 20M with 2 QSOs, then nothing else on 20M, best results on 40M with a couple on 80M. 73, Steve K4JPN

WX4RM - Yes, 20 meters was open and I finally was able to work California, New Hampshire and Texas. There was high noise levels on 40, but that was the main band for contacts tonight. Had fun as always.

WA1GWH - 40m quite noisy from here in central New York but quieted down some after 9 PM. Worked close in and out to WI, MI, NB but sigs mostly not very strong at any distance.

AB9BZ - Fun sprint, glad to work the Prez and WI. Thanks for the contacts, 73.

KB1M - Great conditions overall here, with 20 good for the first half hour, even Reverse Beacon seemed to hear me especially well. 72/73, Walt

W0ITT - Thanks for a nice event. I used my FT857D down at 5 watts for most QSO's, but turned on my QRPp 1-watt transmitter for the last 2 contacts: thanks to W5WIL and KF9LI for having good ears. 72 de Gary W0ITT #9113

N8GZ - I had to work around my local club weekly 2 meter net, It was maddening to watch the pan-adapter full at the QRP freq's and not to be able to call. Thanks to all! great fun as always. 73, N8GZ

AK3X - Managed a full hour with few interruptions. 40 meters only and band sounded good. 72. Peter

CO8CML - Nice to be again in the Sprint, after a long time absent.Only worked 20m band using an inverted "V" antenna.QRM was strong and only for 30 minutes could hear a few stations.Thanks to Stephen WB4OMM for the QSO.I hope to be there next sprint.

AA5LH - Amazing how 20/40 have bounced back. Worked 20M for the first 30 mins until it died. On 40M it was a greater challenge. Worked only four stations with fair-good results. On 80M I heard only 1 station & unable to make contact. Went back to 40M. My apologies to the 2 gentleman attempting QSO between 0210-0220z. I just couldn't pull you out. Take care.

N8LA - KX3, 5W, 200' Dipole @ 35', NAQCCode Warrior. WOW! 7 20 meter contacts, including DA PREZ!! Yes, Virginia, there is a Cycle 25 and it is arriving even before Christmas? Worked people on all three bands, including homeboy Gregg, WB8LZG, on 80 whose beautiful finger pieces grace the NAQCCode Warrior. K9WWT gave me a call also on 80 and we had a QSO, 500W to 5W. Thanks to all for the great sprint contacts and apologies to any I could not pull out. Until next time I wish all the best of health and QRP fun! Lou, N8LA

W2SH - 20m was open but rather unstable with QSB sometimes causing signals to completely disappear. Action was mainly on 40m where QRN was absent. While 80m also lacked noise, it regrettably had little activity, this despite producing signals with good strength out to 600 miles.

WB0ISG - Lots of fun this time around! Lots of static crashes and the FT-818 wide receiver made for difficult operating but I worked two ops. Need to get that audio filter built up. 72!

N5GW - 20 had a few weak QSB signals. 40 had heavy QRN from local rain storms - so I gave up early.

WA2FBN - I could only make part of the sprint; conditions seemed pretty good on 40m. Tnx to all. 72 Ken
