SOAPBOX:

K3WWP - Usual S8-9 noise plus poor propagation, but at least I got my usual 1 QSO to keep up my participation in our sprints.

NN3E - Thanks everyone for the QSO's 72/Kevin

KD0V - Band conditions were very poor on Southern Minnesota this evening. Signal were every weak on 20M and the noise on 40M was S9+.

KJ4WNA - I managed to get on the air a little bit this evening, and what fun it was to participate in the sprint, even if I just had an hour's time into it. 20 was pretty noisy for me here in the middle of Houston tonight, but I still managed some QSOs. 72 everybody!

WB4OMM - Great night on 20M.....pretty stable signals, with a bit of QSB. Band was reasonably quiet until it bottomed out at 0130Z. Some good skip working NO2D in CO; KQ0E in MN, and KN1H in NH. Worked some old dependable friends tonight, and met some new ones....welcome to KQ0E, KC5F, and KE8NUM with those BIG 5 digit numbers! As always, I enjoyed every minute of it! 72 to all, see you next month! Steve WB4OMM

K3RLL - With the way 20 meters was this evening, I now know how folks must have felt when prohibition was out: "Good Times Are Here Again ..." ;-) Lots and lots of signals, low noise, and my 15 contacts in 30 minutes. Life was good on 20m tonight here in FL. So whoever bribed the ionosphere to help us out, thank you very much! That was FUN!

KC2MJT - Heard plenty of signals on 20 - all down in the mud. Wasn't able to work anyone on that band. 40 was very noisy and managed two contacts in 55'. K3JZD has a good set of ears. 80m was a wasteland. Nevertheless, had a hoot, cu next round!

W4HH - Lots of strong sigs on 40, cud work only half hour; see you next month.

K4KBL - Really different band conditions tonight. QSB and worked many very local stations. Had fun as always...

AB9BZ - Thanks for the sprint, bands were noisy but I still made a few contacts and had some fun. 73 ab9bz

NO2D - Stuck with 20 meters. 40 meters was very noisy here this evening. As always, thanks for those members who make the sprints possible. I really enjoy them even if I don't make many contacts. NO2D, Pete.

KJ4R - Lots of QRN from storm in the area. Finally had to pull the plug early. Lightning getting too close for comfort. Thanks to all for the QSO's and the club members that work to make the sprints possible. KX3/Vibroplex Bug/ EFHW. 73 until next month.

KC5F - After being in Mexico last month, I had to make the Sprint this month even though I had limited time. And to be sure to find and work Glen, W1ND!

WB1GYZ - Good bands, good ops, good time.

WG8Y - Hi all, Started half hour late. Did S&Ping for app. an hour then went QRT. Long day here. I'm listening to KF7Z, Dan in WY calling CQ on 20M at 10:15 Eastern time as I type. Nice to hear 20 open for the Sprint. CX6AV was calling CQ on 14.064 I worked him. He was pretty weak but I didn't get a power from him so didn't log him for the Sprint. Hope to put in a full 2 hours for the QRPp next week. 72 all from N.C. Mark WG8Y

W8EH - My first sprint. Short on time. Next time I'll use the straight key.

WO7T - Neither 40M or 20M seemed too active, and was plagued with a lot of QRN, probably because it hasn't rained here in the desert for over 2 months. It was my first effort in a NAQCC Sprint, so glad to have participated. Sorry for those enduring my rusty SK.

W1ND - Slow start. 20M wasn't all that great and I spent too much time trying to make it great. 80M wasn't any better. 40M was it. Lots of "I can almost hear someone" signals that I couldn't work Next week for the mW Sprint, I'll be /p in VT

N8HWV - Lotsa noise on 40. Few signals on 20, and not much heard on 80. Just didn't have enough time to operate tonight, Thanks for the Q's.

AA9L - Lot's of signals on 40 but the band was noisy and the sigs were weak. But still was able to make a few contacts and that's what counts. Rich AA9L

KF7Z - Condition very poor tonight, was able to pick out a few but was tough. running a kenwood TS2000 at 5W to a dipole at 25' see you next time 73 danny

K4JPN - Heavy QRN at the start, but around 0145Z it seemed to disappear. Lot of fun. 72, Steve K4JPN

N4MJ - Fun evening. Some new ones, some old ones.

K9QEW - Operated 20m first hour with IC7300. Second hour operated 40m with HB xtal controlled "Funmitter". 40 meters had a S7 noise level. 72/73s & STAY TUNED!

NF8M - (Op time about 1 hr) Greetings QRP friends! Hit all 3 bands tonite. Nice to get on 20 meters though the QRN here is S9. Good turnout on 40. W8GG was a S9 surprise on 40, usually in the skip zone for Gregg. Gud to work a few new-to-me ops too. 72 es cu in the milliwatt.

K2CWM - Made 17 contacts, 5 on 20m, and 12 on 40m. Always a very enjoyable easy going sprint. Always use a straight key, usually an old Lionel J38 (almost as old as me hi hi). Thanks fer all the contacts. Curt K2CWM NJ

KN1H - All three bands pretty noisy tonight with a huge band of TS activity just to the West of us. Felt like quite an accomplishment to hear and be heard on 80M! Looking forward to trying it all at less than a Watt next week!

W1RCP - I had a great time. The noise was a little high here, but such is city life. Hope to catch you all again soon! 73 -Rob

AB8FJ - Elecraft K3/10 @2W to the end-fed random wire up 15 feet. Key used was my Bencher RJ-2. Stayed on 40 meters for this event. Thanks for the QSOs!

KC3RN - Good signals tonight in spite of some static crashes. Had a nice 2x QRP chat with a non-member. I think I recruited him for NAQCC. His call was KE4MKG and was running 3 watts. I alternated between my 7300 at 5 watts and my 817. Both radios did surprisingly well. Happy with both rigs. I was able to run a bit on 40 and 20. I apologize if I missed you - I'm not used to have more than one station answer me. :-) Had a ton of fun!

K9DRP - What a noisy night! Sure made use of the external audio filter on the RGO One. Nice to make contacts on 20. Didn't even flip the band switch to 80. Hope to have less QRN for the mW sprint next week.

AB4QL - Thunderstorms going through was not fun. I only operated for a short time. Better luck next month!

AC1KV - Worked mostly on 40m. Lots of static this evening. Thanks for all the QSO's! 72 Dan

DK1VD - On 40m signals where weak and a lot of local QRN I dont know from where. 20m was weak but one in the log thank you to AB9CA

AA5LH - Schedule didn't allow but 15 mins at start & 15 mins before close. Worked the KX2 tonight. Extremely happy to nab 3 Q's w/in 10 mins on 20M. Conditions were good there w/slight QSB. Nothing worked on 40M w/heavy QRN. Take care & hopefully hear many next week.

KI7PBR - I got my # at 0025 6/8/2022 UTC and made my one and only contact at 0057 6/8/2022 UTC. Even thought I only got one it was a success as I was getting spotted at 5w on RBN...glad to be a member of NAQCC

K2DEP - Lots of fun tonight but a lot of QRN on 40M. Tough pulling in some of you and I apologize for the repeat requests but some were buried pretty deep. Used my trusty KX3 and SCHURR mahogany hand key. Hope to see you in the MW this month.

KQ0E - Great fun - thanks all. 20m was open for entire event, like a pipeline to Carolina's at end. 40m never really got going.

WD4OHD - Pretty good conditions tonight. Some good signals on 20m at the beginning. Little heard on 80m (made one QSO). Most of my activity was on 40m. Luckily, local thunderstorms held off for the Sprint but are due to ramp up again later tonight. Thanks to all.

K4KRW - Fun night. I was able to work the entire sprint for a change. Quite a bit of QSB here. A bit of noise too. Great hearing everyone. Thanks! 73 Richard

K2OID - 40 was pretty good tonight. Operating from my daughter's QTH in VA rather than my NY QTH may have confused some "regulars". Brought my QCX+ with me. Amazing how well 5 watts and a simple dipole only 15 feet off the ground works! QRP is absolute magic!

NQ2W - Many, many moons ago I won a Vibroplex Know Code straight key in an NAQCC drawing...the video on our homepage shows a picture of me and my prize (my hair is a little different but the shirt still fits!). I went out on a limb and used it for this sprint. Thank you all for copying my fist. The bands were in pretty good shape...25 Qs on 20, 17 on 40, and 7 on 80. The 7 on 80 came in the last 11 minutes of the sprint and were exceptionally strong - KN1H was 20 over - FB. Thank you for the very enjoyable evening on the radio. The organizers continue to put on quite a party. Hopefully, I'll hear you and you'll hear me in the mW next week! 72, Will, NQ2W

W4NLT - Thanks for the QSOs. Some strange propagation on 20M. Some long range sigs peaked at 599 then band went short. 72/73

K6GPB - No contact activity on 20 or 40. Did not hear any NAQCC members. My CQ's made it on the RBN but unfortunately not with others. Look forward to better conditions next time.

N7QR - 66th sprint: KX3 5 Watts on 18 Ah Gel cell, QRP Guys paddle operated sideways as a straight key, QRP Guys 9:1 UnUnTenna @ 15' in the trees at Pinewood Park in Columbia Falls MT. 40 was noisy, 20 was good. Russ, on vacation near Glacier Park.

KN4RQD - Great fun as always. Propagation on 40m was short, but local signals were pretty good. Set a personal record for number of RBN hits with an EFHW that was shorter and lower than usual. Looking forward to the mW sprint next week! 72 and thanks for the QSO's

K4NE - Rig quirkiness added a new twist to things. 80m was a no-show, but 40m seemed to hold it mostly together.

N7KM - I only had 25 minutes to operate this evening. I through an end fed into a tree and operated from the tail gate of my truck. I was using a G90 at 5 Watts. I did not have a hand key with me so used a makeshift homemade paddle. It was fun and I hope to do the mW sprint with time to really get into it. Fun anyway thanks to all.

WB9HFK - A fun evening of QRP using the trusty J-38 on 40M. Sorry to those that I could tell were calling but the QSB and QRN were rough tonight! I'm hoping that things are quieter next week for the mW run! Thanks! 72, Mark WB9HFK

W2JEK - SOAPBOX = GOT ON LATE, ONLY 3 QSO'S. WAS GOOD TO BE ON. 72/73 DON W2JEK

W4KAC - Didn't have a lot of time, but it was fun. Thanks all!

KC3MIO - I wanted to use my magnetic loop for the sprint, out on the deck, but it rained. 1.25" by the start and 1.36" total by 02300. So I reverted to the doublet with an MTR-4B into an Emtech ZM-2 tuner. 20 was open and I made one contact (in PA!) but I couldn't make any more headway so I turned to 40, but went back to 20 and worked FL and CO. After that it was all 40 with only one at the end on 80. Nice to work some new ops - welcome to the club - and old familiar call signs. Thanks to my contacts and apologies to the op that I could not work - I think there was a KK in the call but I could never get the whole thing. Maybe I was just tired. Thanks to the NAQCC and looking forward to the MW sprint next week. It would be nice if 15 were open.

WS1K - Conditions poor but noise wasn't bad. Crazy QSB on 40. Gave out a couple real 599 reports. 15 Qs, 1-80. 10-40 and 4-20. Fun as always and thanks to everyone. Elecraft K2 5W and old Bunnell straight key.

KE5YUM - I set up a portable station on a picnic table at our vacation site in northeast Wisconsin. After two quick contacts, the battery was getting weak and the mosquitoes were ganging up on me. Terry Ke5yum/9

KA6J - Conditions here in TX were tough. S8 noise floor. Spent most of my time on 20. Could not hear any activity on 40. Sorry I couldn't copy some that called! Thanks for the sprint!

W8GG - Hello Fellow Sprinters ! What a great night for a sprint. I started on 20m but after only one qso they seemed not to hear my CQs. Went to 40m and it was playing perty good. I had a Beeline to the south last night. Many signals on 40m were 599 plus, but all short skip. Had a run on 40 and worked 26 QSOs in 45 mins. WOW talk abt busy in the hot seat. Sorry to several callers who i did not answer, there were many times i had 2 and 3 guys calling at once. Nice to work some close-in stations like Frank NF8M in MI who i usually dont even hear at all. Sigs were weaker from east coast, but VA and PA were all LOUD ! Went to 20 after 10 PM and found it still open and to my delight ,I worked KF7Z,WX7V,and N4XD. Worked 3 non members last night, es hope they will join our club. Nice to hear some old friends and good to hear those new members too. 73 to all, Gregg W8GG

KA2KGP - 40 m. was the band for this NA Sprint. Only 2 contacts on 80 m. as noise was high. Rig: IC-7000 at 5 w. into G5RV up 25 ft. w/ straight key. 73

K3JZD - All 40m except 80m during the last 15 minutes. Had a thunderstorm passing through, but I setup anyway. My 120vac power went off for two seconds right at 0030 UTC. So had to get all setup again. 40m was pretty noisy - I figured it was just from the storm. Made copying weaker stations tough. But I soldiered on. Sorry if I did not hear you. After the event ended, I then discovered that my two second power interruption at 0030 UTC had put my motion detected LED floodlights into the steady ON mode. That was probably my high noise level. Lesson learned. I used my K4 set to 4.9 watts. 40m dipole and 107' EFRW for 80m. Jody - K3JZD

WA1GWH - A bit noisy on 40m from here near Syracuse, NY, but had no trouble working stations from 0035 to 0108 UTC when I was on. The forecast thunderstorms turned out not to be a problem! Note to fellow members: Am hearing a number of bugs with dot contacts that do not make/break cleanly and it is hard to copy. Suggest burnishing maybe and adjusting the action. Test by monitoring signal? Not sure if listening to sidetone is an adequate test. TU ES 72!

VE7HI - Heard a few stns calling but condx here were not good. Thanks for the sprint! CUL.

K8KUF - Could only operate the first half hour.

N5GW - Most of my contacts were on 20M which was open almost the whole sprint. Checking on 40M revealed only a few weak signals plus QRN noise, but the 20M opening more than made up for it!

KB1M - 20 Seemed to be in fair condition but very crowded around the watering hole, not much below 14059. To much garden & yard work today went QRT early. 73 Walt

WX4RM - Lots of noise tonight, with many stations heard just fading out into the noise level. Most of my contacts were of surrounding states. Was glad to have worked several new 5 digit members, along with some familiar friends. Had fun as always!

N4SD - Always amazed at what 5 watts can do.

W2SH - 20m was very noisy and few stations were heard, of which only one was worked. 40m was in good shape but showed no long skip signals. 80m had low noise but only presented activity in the final half hour.

NA4O - Quit a little early due to nearby lightening, but qsb and fairly weak signals this month. Used my new CWMorse LLC Micro Code Key for the first time. KX3@5W.

K8NGW - Good signals on 20 for the first 45 minutes. Then on to 40 and my oh my, the noise! Completed many QSO but several were lost in the noise. Great Fun! See you all next week.

KN2G - 5 watts to my newly erected inverted vee at 55 feet catches Florida from central New York state. It never stops amazing me. Oh the wonders of electromagnetic radiation and the human ear! Some new to me calls tonight too. 40 was of course the hot spot. Milliwatt sprint next week! I can hardly wait!

WT4U - I started off with the MTR-4B on 20m. When I switched to 40m, it was putting out just 3W, which was plenty to work Jerry K4KBL, but Mark WB9HFK couldn't hear me after repeated calls. Switched over to the 'QRO' rig with a full 5W and I was surprised he answered on the first call. Guess it made a difference that time. Back at it with 1 watt next week!

W9YO - This month 20M faded quickly but 40M held up well. No signals were heard on 80M.

KR4AE - Horrible static crashes on 40m with tstorms all around!

AK3X - In spite of the email reminder I totally forgot about the sprint until around 0130 when I heard N5GW calling CQ NA on 20 meters. Hearing no one else on 20 I switched to 40 and was just getting rolling when an S9 plus 40 db noise level wiped out the band (and all other bands). Never heard it before and thankfully not since. So only a few contacts for me.

KE8NUM - Thanks to the stations that worked me for my very first sprint. I did not make many QSOs but I really had fun getting my new QRP rig outside for this event.

VE3GNU - Participation curtailed due to poor WX and TVI! Thanks to all. 73---Ernie
