SOAPBOX:

K3WWP - Forgot and used my keyer instead of my bug. Noise was horrible here tonight and only heard a couple stations and only was able to work one. Some difference from the SST Sprint on the 4th when I made 42 QSOs in 29 mults in just an hour with my same QRP setup. Unfortunately, QRP signals don't make it through my noise like QRO signals.

K4KBL - Slim pickens' tonight. I think I worked more stations in my state than anywhere else. Difficult band conditions for sure on this end. 14 contacts in an hour and I shut it down for the evening. Hope others had better results....See you all next month. Nice to work a few 5 digit members !!

WD4OHD - Rough going this evening for the first hour (all I could devote to it tonight). No signals heard on 80m and mostly weak ones on 40m. Some good signals on 20m but plagued by QSB. Enjoyed it as usual, however.

KY0Q - Not much time tonight but wanted to make at least a few Qs. Nice again to have 20M open - much less QRN than 40M.

K3RLL - Rough, rough night on 40m. One minute he's there; the next minute he's gone like my last Social Security check. Usually solid stations were barely readable. Apparently supply shortages hit 40 meters? 72 ... Don K3RLL

AB9BZ - Thanks for the sprint, have a blessed Easter 72 ab9bz

K4KRW - It was nice to get some contacts on 20. I had a little trouble with QSB. Great hearing everyone. Thanks! Richard

NG2J - Very noisy tonight with QSB. Only worked an hour. I only had one contact while running.

AC5XK - Lots of activity on 40m. Thanks, everyone!

NF8M - Good activity on 40 tonight. Many callers for the run stations. Nothing heard on 80 though. TNX es CUL 72

WB9HFK - Thanks for all the QSO's! I cut it short this evening. The QRN here in IL on 40M was pretty nasty. See everyone next time! 72, Mark WB9HFK

WB4OMM - On the road this week working in MD, so went up to Gettysburg Natl Battlefield in PA to work the Sprint. Got a few before the band went out. Thanks to those I worked! See you all next month! 72/73 Steve WB4OMM

N2CN - New 20m attic dipole did OK.

K8MPW - First NAQCC Sprint, been a member for a long time. Hopefully band conditions will be better for next sprint. "I'll Be Back"

N0TA - Weird night! 23 on 20m, 7 on 40m. I had 5 Q's with Colorado stations on 40m - that has never happened before! I think 40m was both short and noisy (s9 here). Thanks for the Q's. K3 @5w, doublet & vertical, Amplidan key, NAQCC Sprint Logger.

KE3V - A very nice night for radio.

AA9L - Lots of signals but noisy band.

KC3RN - Didn't get home from work until 10:00 so I only got to work the last 30 minutes. Still had a good time, and good signals on 40. Having the CW filter in my 817 made a world of difference.

NO2D - 40 meters was dead. NOTA only station I could copy. Also almost copied another station but could not make out enough to call it a contact. Then got long distance phone call. Time of contact with N0TA is an estimate because of the phone call. Sorry about that. Pete, no2d.

KJ4R - Did not get a chance to join in the fun until 0200. Thanks to all that I worked and sorry for a few that I just could not pull out of the noise.

K2CWM - Probably like most everyone else I started on 20m, then went to 40m, then finished up on 80m. Always fun. Always use a straight key, and this time it was my old (1943) Lionel J38. Thanks fer all the contacts.

AI6SL - 20m worked well. A bit noisy on my end.

N8HWV - What fun to be in run mode. Only had 30 minutes to operate but what a blast. Glad the storms cleared out so I could connect the antennas back up. Thanks fellow NAQCC members.

KN1H - Thanks for another enjoyable evening of pounding the straight key with old friends. Lots of activity, lots of two-fers. IC-7300 and Nye Viking Master Key,

DK1VD - could hear more stations but qsb was slow and long has been fun this night

W1RCP - My first NA sprint. Now I can use my QRP rigs for more than POTA! I spent most of the sprint either in a local 2m net, tending to guests, and trying to install the AC2C logger and update the membership data, which still won't work.

K9DRP - What a noisy night! Paired my Timewave filter up with my RGO One to try to work thru the QRN, and did better than expected. All QSOs on 40 as 80 held an S9 noise level. (Almost worked NQ2W on 80). It was noisy but still fun!

KC5F - 20 and 40 were great, but 80 was too noisy here to copy anyone. Lots of fun, as always!

K9QEW - Just returned from wintering in AZ. Great to be back at home QTH. Early ops on 20m then down to 40m. 72/73s and STAY TUNED!

N4MJ - 20M was good until it died. 40m had serious QRN so didn't stay long. 80m heard not a signal.

W4NLT - Tnx for the QSOs 73/72 Andy

K8NGW - 20M was good for the first 30 minutes. Moved to 40M and oh the noise, THE NOISE! I had to dig really hard to pull faint signals out of it. Checked 80M and didn't hear much activity. Not the most productive sprint, but fun none the less!

WB1GYZ - The longer it takes for bands to improve, the more appreciated they will be... but I'm more than ready right now.

AB4QL - Well that was interesting, between local QRN and in shack QRM it was difficult HI HI

NQ2W - Wow! That was something...25 QSOs on 20m, 23 on 40, and 10 on 80. Pretty much the entire first hour was on 20 but only a handful of stations west of the Mississippi...7 in IL, 4 in NC, 3 each in MN and TN. I think that has never happened before in an NAQCC sprint for me. 40 was short, as well. 80 was noisy and very short. Thanks for the contacts and allowing me the opportunity to participate. I'm looking forward to next month...this QRP CW radio stuff rocks! 72/73 Will, NQ2W

WG8Y - Hi all, Started on 20m. Got 6 Q's b4 band started faded. Then phone rang. Lost app an hour. Went to 40M.Just did S&P the rest of the Sprint. Tnxs to N8LA For the repeats. We were both 339. Had a gud time. 72 all from N.C. Mark WG8Y

K2OID - Very good conditions on 40 tonight. Band was opened for the entire contest. There was some QSB but not too bad. Had lots of fun as usual. Special tnx to K9DRP for "good ears".

WD4CFN - Running IC7300 at 5W into a 110 ft doublet up 45ft. I only had about 30mins to play, but it was fun. Thanks for the Q's!

W2JEK - Got on late with only 25 minutes left. made 4 QSO'S. Had fun. 72 and 73 DON W2JEK

N2RIC - It wasn't my night: got on the air late and made 0 contacts. I hope to do better next month.

WX4RM - Started off on 20 meters, and found that was the band for me to be on tonight. Had a few contacts on 40 meters, but the noise level was over S9 and I was thankful to be heard at all. Had fun as always.

KQ0E - IC-705 to INV-L up at 65' Great time, tnx to everyone!! Very high noise level on 80m and 40m. Most Q's on 20m this time.

KE5YUM - Strong signals on 20 made for good contacts. I worked 5 in the short time I was on. All the best, Terry. FT 817 @ 5 watts

WS1K - Operated on 40M only. 20 was shut down by the time I got on, 80 was noisy and no one heard. 40 was noisy too but stations were workable. Had fun just the same! Thanks everyone. Transceiver was Xiegu X6100 5W.

K1IX - Really good night. lots of activity and good short ship conditions. Tnx fer Q's 73 Frank

W1VKE - Conditions were rough. Seemed like no-one was on 80, at least that I could hear. Thanks to those that picked me up. Operating my K3 at 5 watts into an 80-10 EFHW. See you next month.

KC2MJT - All the action here was on 20M. 40M was brutal. Blank slate on 80. 703+ with random wire off the deck

KC3MIO - Decided to upload the new membership data to the NAQCC logger around 0000. 45 minutes and several error messages later, I realized that I had the data uploaded properly. The delay made me miss an open 20 meters and I almost quit in disgust, but I persevered. I was using an MTR-4B with an Emtech ZM-2 Tuner into a 125' doublet, up 45'. I was a glad I stuck with it. Zilch on 80, all contacts on 40. The band was not particularly long, with longest contacts in WI and AL from PA. I did work the rare non-member, VA3GPJ and had to ask for his call several times. He was using a TenTec Corsair and a homebrew crystal-controlled transmitter. I'm going to suggest that he join the NAQCC. Super fun as usual and it's great to see activity and enthusiasm increasing. Thanks to all my QSOs and the NAQCC. A Blessed Easter and Passover to all.

VE3GNU - Good, but noisy conditions on 40 here, and signals seemed generally short. Happy with the results and participation from everyone. 73---

KD3CA - Qrn was very bad here , but were some good signals about. worked all on 40 mtrs. Did call on 20 and 80 mtrs but no response. I did quiet a bit early as noise was getting to me. Many tnx to all for the calls .73 Don

VE7HI - My first NAQCC activity in years! Condx made it worth a try and pleased that I did!

WT4U - After barely making an appearance last month I was determined to stick to my key tonight. 20m was hot while it lasted so at first I was expecting a blowout Sprint. 40m was busy until the last half hour, but noisy with QSB. I'd answer a CQ and then not be able to tell if he was calling me back. Or strain to complete a QSO only to have the station pop back up to 579 as soon as we were done. Never heard a soul on 80m! Fun challenge. If it was too easy, we'd have to move to QRPp!

AA5LH - A bit late for the start but got busy on 20M. Started off right away with a POTA activation. Conditions were their normal challenge but worth it. Thinking it's freq's would soon die after 0130z, I switched to 40M. Very little activity except for two CA non-members & a local (CO-N0TA) steady. Went back to 20M to finish the Sprint. Take care & Happy Easter to All.

W8GG - Hello Fellow sprinters. Fired up on solar pwr last night. 20 was open at the start, and i went back es forth from 20 to 40m. 20m died after 1st hour es 40 got vy noisy here in mid-Mich. 20m propagtion was not normal, es 40 turned very noisy after the 1st hour. I had fun working old timers and new members alike. Thanks to 2 or 3 guys out there who called and i couldn't pull u out of the crud. Better luck next sprint. 73 to all Gregg W8GG

N2AWE - An enjoyable night. I believe this is a personal best for me.

KB1M - Fun night here, 20 & 40 each gave 1 stations from DK, but sadly one qso did not understand request for pwr output and was not member. Stateside west to CO on 20 & 40. Thanks and 72, Walt

KD0V - At 0032Z a line for very strong thunder storms was directly over my QTH. The storm was moving rapidly and by 0050Z is they were out of the area. The noise level on 20M was S7 to S9 and on 40M it was a solid S9+20 db. I will given it a try next month. See you all then, I hope.

WA2FBN - Slow start with xmiter problems giving me trouble. Once I got problem resolved condx seemed pretty good on 40m. TNX and 72 Ken - WA2FBN

N2JJF - 40m very active tonight. Shoutout out to DK1VD for hanging in there to complete dx contact. Also tnx to N3AEA for a difficult copy but managed to complete it.

KN2G - First time out with the KX2. It is worth the wait. It took a bit of learning but I think I got everyone... 20 was amazing considering it was after dark here. And did I mention it was fun? Let's do this again next month!

W2SH - Although on 20m I did hear one station in CO, most stations worked were in a shorter skip zone. After the band closed, 40m was the place to be, but there was plenty of QRN. 80m was sparsely populated, but signals were strong and QRN was minimal.

KC9ZO - 40 Meters had severe static crashes. only one contact on that bad. 20 Meters was a little better. Had to use 120Hz BPF to copy stations plus a SCAF filter to boot.

KA2KGP - Only 1 QSO on 20m., 40 & 80 were weak here in WNY this sprint. Rig: IC-7000 at 5w. into a G5RV up 25 ft. w/ old WWII German Junkers straight key. 73 to all.

K9NUD - I did not have a lot of time, but the bands were almost as friendly as my fellow participants. **updated 4/14/22 - I thought the bands were great, especially 20M. So were the other ops :-)

N7QR - 64th sprint KX3 5 Watts 1958 Vibroplex Butternut HF6V gnd mtd vert w/o radials. 20 was hopping and 40 was open but too weak to work, nothing on 80. Russ, Portland OR

N8LA - KX-3, 5W, 200' Dipole Up 35', NAQCCode Warrior With W8GG Finger Pieces! Conditions Bad. Tried 20 and only heard N0TA down in the noise but could not get through to him. 40 and 80 noisy but was able to work three on 40. Apologies to KQ0E whose information I could not completely copy. Same goes for all who called but I was unable to copy. Heard MQRP Club net on 80 and worked net control Jerry, K8JRO, but did not get requisite information. Best 72 To You All and here's hoping for better conditions here next time. Lou, N8LA

AK3X - Got in for about the last 30 minutes. Fun sprint as usual.

W1CFZ - 20 was surprising to make contacts. Using my kx2 which I'm trying to use more these days instead of my other rig.

N5GW - I started out with S&P on 20M, but there was lots of QRN from local rain fronts. I was reluctant to call CQ for fear I would not be able to copy weak return calls. Deciding 40M would be even noisier and 80M out of the question, I did not stay around long. Better luck next month.

WA1GWH - Skip was fairly short and most sigs loud. Worked four OPS right here in NY state. WA2FBN your signal improved GREATLY after the change that you made. Wondering what it was? Thanks, all, for the contacts! Garry

K4JPN - I tried 80M and 40M, but heavy QRN and nothing heard. 20M was hot until 0145Z. Lot of fun. 72, Steve K4JPN
