SOAPBOX:

K3WWP - I think my noise has gone away enough for me to put in a serious effort in our sprints again. However not tonight as I had some other things to take care of. Hope to work more of you in the October Anniversary Sprint. 73 for now.

K4KRW - Thanks everyone!

KC2MJT - The propagation gods were smiling tonight. Quietest cndx I've had in a year. Thanks all!

NO2D - Both 20 & 40 meters good. Static crashes from T-Storm that rolled through a few hours ago. Otherwise fine conditions tonight. Pete, NO2D.

K3RLL - Last NAQCC Sprint with a real antenna but it's starting to get cold up here in rural PA. Good night with good signals. Big signals here tonight were K3JZD & KC3MIO, at near opposite ends of the state. Neat stuff! 72/73 ... Don

N0TA - 20m was great; however, 40m was very noisy. thanks for the Q's.

W1BLU - Storms surrounding me all night. QRN was maddening! Still managed to get some QSOs in. Still fun. 73

KJ7KDB - Thank you NAQCC for having these events. The fear of getting on and trying for contacts seems easier each time. Still nots to learn, but great fun! Heard quite a few east coast stations but couldn't make a contact. Plugging away with the Xiegu G90 @ 5 watts and J38 straight key. 73 de KJ7KDB Tim

AC5XK - Thanks everyone!

AB4RH - Thanks everyone!

KJ4R - Got a late start and had to quit early. Early day at work tomorrow. Good to work my friend KY4ID. A rare treat to work another SC station! Doing a great job with the Bug Mike! 73 to all and hope to have more time next month.

AB9BZ - Really fun tonight, I had just purchased a uSDX and was running it on 5V USB power for a total of 500mW, made 3 contacts in 10 minutes - you guys have some really good ears. Thanks and 72 ab9bz

WB4OMM - Got a late start at 0115Z, but was able to get on the air quickly. Made a few on 20M before it died, went to 40M and made several more. Tried 80m and was pleasantly surprised to work recently new member N1BRI #11181 in CT! Some QSB and lots of noise and he was the only signal I heard. Glad to work what I could....and I had a blast as usual! 72 to all, hope to work you in next month's 18th Anniversary Celebration Sprint! Steve WB4OMM

NQ2W - Quite enjoyable! I got a late start and finished early. 20, 40, and 80 all had some decent signals on them. Worked a few 2-banders - real surprise was AA0W, Ron in NE, on both 20 and 80. Great job hearing me, Ron! Thanks for the Qs and the opportunity to participate. Kudos to the NAQCC for putting on a fine show! Hope to see you all next month. 72, Will, NQ2W

KD0V - The bands were good for a change. Thanks for all the contacts.

K1IX - Good condx and good fun -- tnx for the Q's

N1BRI - Thanks to all for a great time. Sorry for those I tried to get and missed. Thanks NAQCC great sprint!

AB5XM - Did better than expected on 20m after dark here. 40m was very noisy. Enjoyed the contact I made. Thanks to all. Allan AB5XM

AB8FJ - Elecraft K3/10 at 4W to the end-fed random wire. Key used was my 1971 Radio Shack Novice Straight Key. Looks exactly like an Ameco K4. TNX for the QSOs tonight on 40M.

VE3DQN - Haven't heard the bands hopping and the QRP signals so strong for several years! Even 20m was open for me for the first 30 minutes or so. Wish I could have been on for the whole 2 hours.

KF7Z - Just caught the last hour of the sprint but signals that were coming through were strong, better that I expected with the solar number we had. Running an Elecraft K3s at 5 watts to a dipole up 25 ft with a manual tuner. sorry to the couple I could not pull out of the static and thanks to all for the fun. 72 Danny

AC1KV - Thanks for all the Qs.

N2RIC - I was able to participate this month and made four contacts. Conditions were a little rough, but it was fun to get on the air. I'll be listening agian next month!

WA2NYY - Tonight was a lot of fun. Strong signals and low noise on 40 and 80. Spent a few minutes on 20 at the start, but nothing doing. Great to work same stations on both 40 and then 80. 72 Mark

NA4O - Heavy QSB and noise here tonight. Sri I had to ask for so many repeats, but thanks for the patience. All in all a good night for me. KX3@5w, Vibroplex straight key, antenna out back eve of house and down gutter.

KN1H - Operating portable tonight from a campground in Crown Point, NY on Lake Champlain. Like at home in NH, across the water from Vermont! Used the KX2 at 5W to a 28 foot vertical-ish wire which tuned up fine on 20 and 40 with the KX2 ATU. KEY is Electro-voice KY 605/U straight key. Passing storm with high winds and pouring rain added a little excitement! Thanks to KD0V and KY4ID for the 2-fers. 72, John, KN1H/2

K2CWM - Nice easy going sprint. I usually hit the QRZ button to read profiles of new contacts... just part of the hobby for me. Ran my 14-yr old IC-7000 at 5 watts to a vertical on roof using my 1943 (almost as old as I am hi hi) Lionel J38. Thanks all for the fun contacts. Curt K2CWM, South Jersey

N2CN - Operated portable from Rhode Island during vacation. KX2 into QRPguys portable vertical on front lawn. My best log in a long time.

VE3IIM - ..only had 1 hour..condx were very good on 40..Missed VE4QP..he had a great sig here!

AI6SL - 20m seemed to be in very good condition. But the unusual S6 noise at my QTH made it tough going.

K9QEW - Good activity makes for a great QRP Sprint. 20 meters was open somewhat first 1/2 hour. 40 meters had some noise but OK. IC7300, J38 key to a GP Vertical. 72/73s & STAY TUNED! Daryl

N4MJ - 40m was hot compared to 20m. Lots of fun. QSB/QRN caused a couple of stations to be unreadable. Sorry I couldn't pull those out. 73 de n4mj

K6GPB - Tried to connect with AI6___ on 80 who answered my CQ NA. They gave a good try but noise came out the winner. Hope next month is better.

WB1GYZ - An enjoyable evening trying out a new 100' doublet, open-wire feed. I should have built this one a long time ago. Thanks to all who make the Sprints possible.

KY4ID - As usual, great night and great ops. This is my favorite regularly occurring event by far. My operating experience tonight was greatly enhanced by the Vibroplex bug that fellow NAQCC member, Eddie (KJ4R) graciously gifted me. It has easily become my favorite key. Thank you again my friend. Worked 3 11xxx series ops - AC1KV, KN4RQD, and N1BRI. Welcome!! Also worked many friends. Thank you for the Qs and see you next time.

N8HWV - Worked almost the whole two hour period and still only 20 Q's. Always amazed at the folks with their 40+. Can do a lot with 5 Watts; some great signals tonight.

WB2LQF - After being "bugless" for a couple of months, my new Galaxy bug arrived in time for this Sprint which made it a really enjoyable two hours. Conditions seemed very good on 40 meters; not so great on 20 meters where I only made three contacts.

NF8M - Nice clear sigs on 40 tonight. Lots of activity. TNX es 72

WG8Y - Hi all, Started on time tonite but 10 min.into the sprint I had a 20 min.phone call. Never fails. Didn't hear anyone on 20m so went to 40m to start. Went back to listen to 20m app 0130Z. Worked AI6SL,CA.MN.& W7XT in MT answered mt CQ. Cool. Back and Stayed on 40M the rest of the way. Had a nice run towards the end of the Sprint. Sorry for missing a couple calls and having to ask for repeats. There were some storms just off the coast of NC causing some QRN. Had Fun! 72 all from N.C. Mark WG8Y

NN9K - de NN9K--Finally a nice enough night to take the KX3 out on the porch, reroute the coax from the antenna and operate. QSB and QRN was there but not too bad so it was a fun evening. Thanks to all that worked me.

N7QR - 67th sprint KX3 5 Watts 1958 Vibroplex 160 m dipole @ 12', 80 was dead, heard some on 20, 40 opened up in the second hour after it got dark for youse guys in the middle of the country. Gud fun for an hour and a half! Russ, Portland OR

K8NGW - An interesting night! I heard quite a few stations on 20, but they weren't hearing me. I did get to work Route 66 station W6C in California! I had more success after moving to 40. In addition to club members, I was able to work Route 66 station W6M in Kansas (they were running 500 watts!). See you all next month!

KC3RN - Good condx on 40 tonight. Made 30 Q's- a personal best. This might be my last sprint for a while. Getting ready to take my station off the air as I move to a new QTH in a couple of weeks. Hopefully I'll be back on as soon as possible. Until then, best 72.

N4JAW - First time submitting log. Only work 1/2 hour/ Band conditions were somewhat compromised with K Index of 4.

W2JEK - Has a good time. Had 2 QSO on 20 and then to 40 for most of my QSO'S. Had 4 QSO on 80. Band conditions not great, have been better. 72/73 DON W2JEK

K2OID - Lots of fun as usual. 40M was in pretty good shape. This month there seemed to be a "pipeline" between Western NY and CT.

KK4ITX - Storms kept me QRT until the last 1/2 hour and the noise was terrible.

AC5RN - FUN!THANKS!

K6MDG - I had 1 QSO (Thank you, Jon N0TA!). This is my first sprint as a new member of the NAQCC. Looking forward to participating more!

N8BB - Back from a short break. I got into Bird Photography and off the air for a few months. 40 meters was really great and did catch more than I expected after the rather poor months of propagation that we had. Had anywhere from S-7 to S-9 qrn most of the sprint but I had soooo much fun that I will be here next event. Thanks to all for the great fun. Eleraft K-3 @5 watts, dipole @40ft.

KE5YUM - Great signals tonight on 20. Thanks to all who worked me. FT 817 @ 5 watts

K8KUF - RIG IS YAESU 817ND. ANTENNA IS A WINDOM UP ABOUT 35 FEET.

WT4U - RBN indicated 20m was hot, but put only a few in the log before moving down to the action on 40m to work a few of the usual suspects, including John KN1H at his lakeside campsite. Needed to make an early night of it and heard nothing but QRN on a quick spin of the dial through 80m before shutting down. A fine evening.

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

KC3MIO - Used my Icom 7300 at 5 watts into a 125' doublet. Band conditions were very good and the QSO counts prove it. Signal reports were good both ways and I don't recall any missed connections. I kept checking 20 and was able to work NN0SS just before 0200 (although I thought his call was NN0SH initially). Thanks to all my contacts - nice to work some 2- and 3-digit numbers and also a couple of 11K numbers. Welcome to the NAQCC! REMINDER - I AM STILL LOOKING FOR OPS FOR THE ANNIVERSARY 10/9-10/15. CONTACT ME AT MY EMAIL ADDRESS IF YOU WANT TO OPERATE N3A. SEE THE SEPTEMBER NEWSLETTER.

VE3GNU - Best conditions, and a welcome change indeed! Stayed on 40 and only for an hour---thanks to all. Jupiter @5W and Begali paddle. 73---

W8GG - Hello Fellow Sprinters. Great night for a sprint 20M was open the entire sprint. Started out with Terry, KE5YUM, then made my first 11 QSOs on 20 then went to 40 for more. Alternated between 40 and 80 around 930pm then went back to 20 at 0207Z to find 2 more CA stations, MT, es WY. First time ive even heard 4 Cal stations in one sprint.Glad to Hear u west coasters. Nice to see many high numbers and lots of activity. Gud to wrk old friend NF8M, Frank too. Had an instance of DOUBLE QSO, i called Steve WB4OMM es sent exchange, then heard another call, so i figured he was working another station, so i did not count him. Also a QSO with KI6KI who sent SKCC nr? Great to have good condx on all 3 bands for a change. Cant wait till next month. 73, Gregg W8GG

K4BAI - This could be my highest QSO total ever and therefore my highest score ever when using a keyer. 20 was quite good, but I had no success until I started calling CQ myself. Answering others, I almost always got beat out by others with stronger signals. 40M was quite good to the eastern part of NA, but not good to the western part. I listened to 80M and heard no QRP signals, so didn't call there this month. Thanks for all QSOs. 73/72, John, K4BAI

VA3NU - Great signals on 40 tonight.

K3JZD - Couldn't make any progress on 20m. Gave up on 20m after wasting the first 20 minutes of the event. (After the event I concluded that my remote tuner on my 107'EFRW had not tuned properly.) 40m was my money band. I did make my last two QSOs on 80m - but there is very little activity on 80m during this time of the year. Elecraft K4 running 5 watts - 40m dipole & 107' EFRW - W1SFR Sideswiper key. 73, Jody - K3JZD

KA2KGP - Wow, a good turn-out and good band conditions this NA Sprint. 40 & 80 were good & 20m. was open the 1st 1/2 hr. Rig: IC-7000 at 5w into G5RV up 25 ft. with old WWII German Junkers straight key. 73 to all

WB9HFK - Great evening on 40M! Used my trusty J-38 for the entire run. Thanks for all the Q's and see everyone next time! 72, Mark WB9HFK

WA2FBN - Rig: LNR MTR3B into EFHW, Good condx; 20m was good for most of the sprint. TNX to all who copied my sig. 72 Ken

K4JPN - Heavy QRN on 20M when I started then about 0130Z it seems to let up. 20M and 40M were hot, but only worked on station on 80M. Lot of fun 72, Steve K4JPN

WI0S - This was fun again even though only one qso was logged. I am getting back into QRP operating slowly, this was a fun event. Heard others calling so decided to partake.

KC1NDI - Enjoyed my first Sprint! Thanks, all.

AA0W - Conditions good on 20M and 40M. Poor on 80M. Thanks to all for QSO's for the log.

W2SH - 20m closed after just a half hour. 40m had plenty of activity with short and medium skip, but accompanied by QRN and QSB. 80m had very few stations QRV, but all with strong signals. I was not clever enough to realize that W6M with a strong 40m signal was a legitimate special event station; missing him cost me a QSO and a Kansas SPC.

WX4RM - Very happy to see 20 meters open, with low noise. Thanks to NAQCC for having these sprints, I look forward to them every month. Had fun as always.

KN4RQD - Fantastic propagation on 40m tonight! It's always great to hear familiar calls. 72 and thanks for the QSO's. See you next month!

K4WY - GREAT NIGHT HERE FOR QRP. 40 STARTED TO STRECH OUT AROUND 0200. RIG WAS A TR-35 XCVR AND A DIPOLE.

K9EYT - 20 was good but 40 was vry gud here in the Chicago area: rig K3s at 5 watts G5rv this was a fun night 72 Ray

KC9IL - First time trying to use an electronic keyer. 20 meters was good for a while then had to jump to 40. Lots of customers there. Grabbed a few on 80 before wrapping up on 40. Thanks everyone for participating and see you in the Anniversary celebration next month.

KN2G - Never ceases to be fun! I felt like moseying this time. I was rewarded with my first triband sweep of a station thanks to KC9IL! Now a quick story about how I bought my KX2 this spring. We moved last fall. The new place was strewn with rusty iron. I hauled over 8000 pounds of scrap iron to the salvage yard.... My wife said I could spend that money as I saw fit. Yep, 8000 pounds of scrap iron traded for a few pounds of radio. Good trade in my thinking! 72 kn2g

KQ1P - Gud cdx, too tired to last long. 73

N8LA - KX3; 5W; 200' Dipole @ 35'; NAQCCode Warrior with W8GG finger pieces wired as dual paddle side swiper by AD0BI. WOW!!! 20 meters was fantastic! Mni came back to my CQs there. Thanks to all who worked me and apologies to any I was unable to pull out of the noise. Have been angry about QR codes that seem to be weird squarish dits and extended dahs. Amateur radio does QR codes two Rs better with QRRR, The official ARRL land SOS. That makes me want to say to non-amateur radio operator QR code users, "Up your ERP with a Yagi!"

N5GW - Got off to a late start and could not stay the whole time, but as usual it was fun!

AA5LH - With only two segments to work, easy decision: go long early on 20M, go moderate later on 40M. The former was very productive and quiet for the 1 1/2 hour of the Sprint. Lots of members heard at the kickoff. Usually a fixed Freq guy but got into the S&P mode quickly. 40M was good but not many stations active. Always fun and look forward to each month. Take care & 72's

AK3X - 40 was in good shape. Fun as usual. Wish I had more time for the sprints.
