K3RLL - K3 to Temp nighttime vertical: 20m was really strong tonight with lots of excellent signals. This was fun! Big signals down here into FL this evening were Gene N5GW and John AE5X. Tnx for the nice contacts and great evening. 72 de Don K3RLL .
WB9G - Thanks for the QSOs! 72, Chris WB9G .
KB8FE - Weather good here in northern Ohio thus no QRN. Some very good signals and others quite marginal. Stayed on 40 meters for about an hour. .
K3WWP - It took a bit longer to get my 20 QSOs this month - 65 minutes. Condx were very good, but I just wasn't getting too many answers to my CQs. They would come in bunches, then silent periods in between. Thanks to all I worked. It was nice to have my noise level low again this month and virtually all 20 QSOs were easy copy. Only a couple repeats of calls needed and no repeats of info. Nice to work our WPA buddy Don from down there in balmy FL. Looking forward to having him up here again for the summer. CU all next month.
KB9BVN - 20m was dead here in Central Indiana...worked 90 mins on 40m with my newly repaired K2 at 5W and the infamous attic dipole...band started opening to the SE here at about 10PM but I had to call it a night. See you all next month! Highlight was working Ivin W9ILF from nearby Morgan County Indiana! .
KD0V - Good sprint, I could only spend an hour this month. 72, Merlin - KD0V .
AJ1DM - FB sprint. Thanks to all for your patience. 73 de AJ1DM .
WU7F - Quick break from doing taxes. Thanks & 72! .
WH6LE - 40m seemed improved from last weekend. Enjoyed another one and thanks to all. Used the LNR Precision ProPump.
W4TZM - Played with a new antenna tonight and it seemed to work well. Had a great time and almost figured out how to work that straight key.
AA9L - Decided to use the Kent straight key this evening and stay on 40 meters. Very good results. What a great CW Sprint. 73 Rich AA9L
W3HI - Thanks to all for another good NAQCC Sprint! .
AB3RU - Fun night - stayed on 40 the whole time. A few stations I seemed to hear out of thin air, between other signals, and sometimes under some sideband qrm! Took a moment to have a small chat about naqcc with a non member that called. See you all next month!
KF7TDF - Fun little sprint tonight, condx turned out a lot better that I expected. Thanks to the management of the sprint for their work to make it happen, see you next month. Danny 72 .
WA8AXF - For a new personal twist, I operated patio portable on battery power with a 20 meter dipole strung just prior to the sprint. A good portable/field day test run. I made contacts until my fingers got too cold to keep going. Also, XE2IF thanks for trying maybe nex time or if I get my antenna higher than 8 ft! .
WB0PYF - Only had about 45 minutes to operate. 40/20 pretty busy, KX3 did great, 72 Ray .
K4KRW - Bands were a bit noisy here tonight. I had to pull a few out of the noise. It was nice getting an Oregon contact tonight on 20 meters. I ended up with contacts on 3 bands. Great fun as always. 73, Richard
N3HEE - Fun! Used my homebrew straight key. Bands were in great shape. Lots of very LOUD QRP signals tonight. 72 All -Joe
N1JI - Great conditions here in NH tonight. See you next month!
WB3T - Made 5 quick ones in the last 21 minutes of the contest but they were good ones. Always a fun event! Used my HW-9 and dipole, pretty much a classic setup. Conditions were pretty good on 40 tonight, no prob copying even the weak ones. Thanks guys, see you next time. Going to work toward making that 50-Sprint list! 72, Bob
WA2JSG - Band conditions were great for me this evening on 20m and 40m. Rig IC-703 off a 12v battery, 5 watts to an all-band vertical. Kent Straight Key. Was watching the W5KUB live broadcast during sprint.... plenty of coffee helps (hi hi). See y'all next month.
N0TA - Good evening. Most Q's on 20m - went to 40m for the last 45 minutes. Thanks for the Q's. KX3, doublet & vertical, camelback, GenLog.
W2JEK - Was only on for the last 45 minutes. Only worked 40 and 80. Bands seemed pretty good but could have been better. Still was a lot of fun. Rig Yaesu FT-840 at 5 watts to end fed wire. 72 and 73 Don Younger W2JEK #1135 .
WG8Y - Hi all,20 sounded pretty good here in N.C. I spent the entire sprint S&Ping. Was on 20 the first hour.I kept going back to 14.067 trying to pull out the call that was cqing. The 817 couldn't pull it out.Next time a vert.for 20m. Went to 40 & so many signals. Many calling so I just went up & down the band working guys.Couldn't seem to find a hole to call cq from anyway.Boy the band was full! Nice relaxing fun filled 2 hours.Good working everyone. 72 from N.C. Mark WG8Y
K6CSL - I just made the last 1/2 hour. I called several stations on 40m without success, then finally WB0USI, here in CA answered my call. TNX. 73's to all and to all a good night from the Northern San Joaquin Valley. Bert, K6CSL .
KB0ETU - Best NAQCC sprint for me in a long time. Considering all the storms in the area, I feel I did quite good. Many thanks to those who heard me and were able to pull me out of the QRN/QRM. Already looking forward to the next one. Used my K-2 with a G5RV and straight key. 72, Phil
KN1H - Thanks for another fun sprint! Really nice conditions on 20 and 40, couldn't make myself heard on 80 for some reason. Used IC-7200 and Nye Viking Master Key. 73, John, KN1H
K2UFT - First Sprint in long time - good to be back!
NN9K - Just too much fun!
K5IX - First attempt with GenLog--hope I got it right!
K1IEE - Missed the first hour for a radio club meeting. When I turned the rig on it was set for 20M and conditions sounded good. Really expected the band to be very quiet. Stayed there for an hour then went to 40M to finish the sprint. Had a busy night but was not going to miss the NAQCC sprint. Thanks to all 73 Dick
N1IMW - Got late ... watching the red sox ugly win ! Not a bad night on 40...thanks to all!
WD0K - 20 was my Darling tonite! 40 was the uninvited cousin! Really nice to hear the East coast as good as I did. My ole friend from QC, Mike had a really nice signal into the Little Canada area. Worked N8XEE from PA for first time, and old ones from GA as well. That last hour of the sprint can get really nasty! Only ran 12 q's but was fun! 72's Rich / wd0k
K0ALN - Busy bands tonight! - and great conditions here in the high Rockies. Good to hear so many stations. 72's and will look for everybody again next month. .
VE2TH - Hello all, very nice condx tonite, many new ones for me. See you next month, and have a very nice quiet spring. 72, Michel
KF7WNS - Great turnout tonight and 20M was elbow-to-elbow. Stayed on 20M the whole time with East coast coming in very strong. Looking forward to next month. 72, Gary
NO2D - Stuck with 20 meters until it faded into the dust. Had fun, used GenLog, but need to update the data files before the next sprint. Also used straight key for the first time in a while. Pete, NO2D PS: Thanks to all who help to run the sprints. .
N8XEE - My first sprint with my new doublet. Very happy with that antenna, and a personal best for me.
W4DUK - Another fun Sprint. Conditions not too bad here in southwest-central Virginia tonight, considering that the steady rain made my SWR go up a little bit. Worked new member and neighbor WD4EXG for the first time...welcome to the club, Billy! 72/73 de Dave
N4SX - I've been looking forward to this Sprint since last month! Got started and made 3 contacts with K3WWP being first on my list. I knew storms were coming and I was watching lightningmaps.org. The strikes were still over 10 miles away but after qso number 3 I heard thunder and it was pretty close. Time to shut down!! By 0215 it was clear and I got back on and made 4 more contacts for a total of 7. In hindsight I should have strung a wire through the house so that I could keep working even through the storm.....we qrp'ers are supposed to be creative and resourceful, right! So when this happens again, I'll be better prepared. Thanks guys for the contacts tonight....Randy N4SX
N7KM - I only got to participate for a few minutes but it was fun. Thanks for having these short sprints. It's hard to keep the log columns spacing straight using an iPad, sorry. 72, Ken
WB5BEK - Got a late start, but an email reminder got me going. First sprint I've done in years. 40 was noisy in Central Texas, but attenuator on K1 was a big help.
WB5HQO - SOLAR kP=4 BAD CONDUX. 20m vERY bAD QRM 40 VERY BAD QRN. 40 M WON OUT 2 CONTACTS, BOTH IN TX. SEE YOU NEXT MONTH.
W6FPS - Bands were in good condition tonight, many strong signals. Many thanks to all who help to put on these sprints. 73, Ron
W0YZZ - I ENJOYED THE SPRINT MY FIRST LIMITED TIME BUT COND GOOD W0YZZ DAVE
N4OW - Lots of local noise but good fun.
WX4RM - Thanks to all who pulled my signal out of the crowd tonight, NAQCC members are very patient and good operators, many good signals heard. Long skip conditions favored my vertical, and was able to work Mexico and Canada. I always look forward to these sprints. Ron, WX4RM
XE2IF - I NEED A FILTER FOR MY FT817, LOTS OF STATION AND LAST 2 QSO AT 1 WATT, LONG LIVE CW!!
K3BAB - First contact! TU N8TNA. Heard many stations here in Rockville MD. I suppose it is time to put up an antenna somewhere, and learn CW hi hi. 73 Bruce
K8RJW - Lot's of signals on 40M but many were casual QSO's. S&P worked better than CQ. Fun at its best! Can't wait for next month. .
AB9YC - I only had a short time again this month, but it wasn't nearly as productive as last month. Conditions seemed pretty quiet compared to a few months ago, I just didn't find many signals. I began on 40M, where I've typically done well. I jumped to 20M and found a few signals, but not as many as I hoped. See you next month! .
NQ2W - Ten-Tec Jupiter @ 5 W to a mini-beam at 25' for 20, an inv V at 40' for 40...and my Vibroplex Know Code straight key donated by NU7T (SK)(Sri to hr abt Steve's passing...thoughts to family and friends). Better than expected band conditions with most signals 599. A few tough ones but I think I got everyone that answered my CQs or that I called in response to their CQ. My fist showed its tiredness near the end of the sprint...thanks for your patience. Never got to 80. Thanks for the opportunity. Hope to hear you all next month. 72, Will, NQ2W
KE5YUM - Thanks to all who worked me in the S-8 noise at the QTH. Thanks to Danny N5DRG in TX for his patience with my poor copy. All the best, Terry .
K9JWV - Condx were the pits out here in s/w UT! Wind was gusting to 40 mph and the resulting QRN - thanks to dust hitting the antenna - was terrible. Invested about 40 minutes, on and off, and finally got tired of my ears feeling like they were bleeding...hihi. Not complaining - just sayin'! Thanks to all who pulled my signal out of the mud! .
N5GW - I had the KX3 back at the cabin on the TN Cumberland Plateau at 2K elevation. Nice place to be except rain all week. It was good to hear so much participation including several unfamiliar call signs. I stayed on 20M for the first hour and a half, then moved to 40M which was good except for a little QRN. 80M was very noisy, yielding only two contacts. .
VE3FUJ - Again an enjoyable sprint. lots of stations about. Tnx to all and see you next month. Brion 3011 .
KA2KGP - A real nice sprint with good band conditions & plenty of NA stations on the band. Rig: IC-7000 at 5w. into dipole up 25 ft. w/ straight key. .
WB8ENE - Nice sprint. There was plenty of activity on 40 meters, so I stayed there the whole time (about 50 minutes). It's nice having a panadapter on the K3 to quickly find all the signals. Thanks for the contacts, and see you next time. 73, Art .
N5DRG - First time to work a sprint with the Ole J-38, fist will be sore later today, but at least the Brass has been polished... Danny N5DRG .
AK4NY - Noise was tough on 40 at my location, however it was still a fun night. .
WB8LZG - Hello fellow sprinters. Great condx tonight ! had the whole time to play radio too ! fired up the trusty Argo 509 on 20 es worked coast to coast ! lot's of new members too! Welcome aboard to all! Had a good time jumping back es forth between 20m es 40m. See u all next month. 73 Gregg .
N8LA - KX-3, 5W, dipole @35 ft., Navy Flameproof hand key (AKA Sinbad Popeye Key.) Wow! Bands like big time contest: wall to wall "CQNA!" Dr. Sigmund Fraud diagnosed my condition as "OCWD with HKF" (Obsessive CW Disorder with Hand Key Fixation.) He said I was "sinning badly," psychologically, continuing my CW "hand key panky." Sinning badly? Reminded me of my Navy Flameproof I had never used on the air. I could call it "Sinbad." But the knob looks like Popeye's pipe. If Francis Scott Key can have two names before Key, so can my Navy Flameproof! Thanks to all contacts and I am sorry for ones I couldn't copy. 72, Lou N8LA .
KG4MTN - Just got started and electrical storm came thru. Better luck next month!! .
KC2NYU - My first Sprint. Finally got the guts to try and had a lot of fun. Still learning the process, so not a lot of contacts. Wasn't using Genlog, won't make that mistake again. Looking forward to next event. 73 Paul KC2NYU .
W5IQS - Enjoyed the Sprint. Lots of fun. Several months since I last participated but made several Q's and at least one old friend contacted. .
AA7VW - I wanted to participate in the sprint even though it was from a motel room here in Salem, OR. My K2 and wire out the window didn't work out well but I did hear a couple of weak signals. Had a 120 foot Fir tree fall on the house about a month ago that took down my antenna and immediately moved me out of the house. Most of my ham equipment is ok but has been packed into boxes and stored elsewhere. Hope to set up in a field next month weather allowing. Sure do miss the sprint and even getting to listen to the bands. On the plus side my house was the only one hit by a tree during the wind storm here. I guess that makes me number one in that category but I get no certificate. .
W3JAR - Had a blast! Thanks! .
WA2FBN - As always a fun sprint. Ten Tec R4020 2 band QRP rig at 4 w. J38 key. Thanks to all who copied my signal. .
K4BAI - IC756Pro, 5W. Good condition on 20M. Had to go to 40 for the last 45 minutes to pick up the closer in mults. 40M had good signals from near and wide, including W6FPS in CA and N7KM in UT. 40 was very noisy with QRN from electrical storms in the area. A storm passed just before the sprint. Also a lot of digital QRM. Thanks for all QSOs. 73/72, John, K4BAI.
K7EW - BY MISTAKE I TRIED TO START AT 0000 OOPS! SRI! .
N4MJ - Was good to have 20m back. Getting more and more digital QRM. Where's that Band Plan??? .
WB4OMM - Wow! Whadda nite! 20M was the money band here in FL for me - great signals, quiet band, lotsa folks, for over an hour. Made 30 Qs in 65 mins and almost all were 599. Then the band died. Going to 40m was horrible. S9 noise, digital signals all over, hard to even read anyone. But I managed to ferret out some 8 Qs in just over 35 minutes, and most were good signals. Then I went to 80M....if possible, it was more horrible than 40M!!! Only made 2 Qs in the last 20 minutes of the contest - but worked my good friend and neighbor (and portable op partner!) WB4MNK and got another multiplier on 40M! (Then worked him again on 80M). Thanks Art! Another 'regular' I worked is Curt WA2JSG - thanks for always being there! Also got to work John K3WWP whom I haven't worked in almost 2 years. Thanks to all that showed up....it's always fun! Look for you in the next contest!! 72/72, Steve WB4OMM
AE5X - This was my first Sprint in many years and I was happily surprised at the level of activity. I was using my new Apache Labs Anan 10E. SDR is a new way of operating for me and it was amazing to see wall to wall signals, a great many of them quite strong. Thanks for the contacts everyone - looking forward to May!
K1SX - Tnx all--good to have 20m so active. I believe N6GA was my 1st west coast in the sprint. .
WA1GWH - Worked only 40M with 900 mW and dipole at 15 ft. Lots of strong sigs, but mostly closer to my location in central NY than usual. TNX FER CONTACTS Garry .
K2SQS - 20 m was in good shape never got down to 80m fun time
WB4MNK - Fun to work the NAQCC sprint after a few months. Bands were good but noisy here in FL because of the storms close by. I worked some new stations and enjoyed also working the stations that I have worked many times before. Thanks to the guy's I was having trouble copying for hanging in there and making it into my log. Hope to hear everyone in next months sprint. 72, Art WB4MNK
AC8JW - Busy sprint this month. Lots of stations participating.
KB3AAG - Another great night and sprint! Last month I somehow came in with a score way ahead of the 3 district! I have no interest in continuing the tradition of the same call winning month after month or even years! This month I turned down my power and sure enough my score drooped! If I win 3 area this month my power will droop the next until the field gets level! Hope to see you next sprint. Frank
K0EUN - Good to be back after a 6-month absence. Bands were in excellent shape; unfortunately I was only able to work a little over 1/2 of the contest due to other obligations. Looking forward to next time.
N7QR - FT840 w/ Vibroplex presentation, I was cut short by the family lobbying to go out for sushi. 80 and 40 dead; 20, they were there but weak. .
KA5TJS - Just got on for 30 min. but had a great time on 20 meters. The band was in good shape down here. Hope we get some more 5's in the contest. They guys from Austin should show up well this month. 73's Allen .
AC5T - Thanks again for all the Qs. QRN was about S8 on 40 here in north Texas with very short but deep QSB. Fun as always. .
AB8FJ - K3/10 at 5W to the Inverted L. Used my Lafayette Radio Electronics bug purchased back in 1971. .
N5RWK - My first sprint! My member # is 7702 .
K8AG - Experimental field setup tryout. Worked OK. Still wringing out bugs. Fun. .
WA5SAT - Had a lot of fun. Nice to meet some new members. 73,WA5SAT
K2YGM - Tonight my noise level was perfect and I could hear the weak signals especially on 20M which was my money band tonight.. It was nice to be able to put a few W6 AND W7 QSOs in the log for a change.. I tried a few 80 meter contacts for the close in multipliers and that worked in my favor as well. Im looking forward to next month already. 72 Bob
NA4SO - Great time - thanks .
CO8CML - Big QRM around 14065;stronger signal was K2UFT.Also copied XE2IF, but could not work him.Thanks to all!!!.CU next month.
K1IX - seemed like low participation..quit early... still fun 73
N8QY - NICE SPRINT WITH A LOT OF GOOD FISTS..
AK3X - Only had 20 minutes to spare, and even that got interrupted! 40 meters only with my DSW-40 and inv vee. Nice signals on 40 while it lasted.. CU all next month. 72 Peter
W3RT - Only 10 contacts, but fun doing it. Long time absent, glad to be on again. Red,W3RT .
VE5BCS - I am not sure of one contact W1SU I never got a roger so left him off log but i'm sure he was good. Band was very hot at the start but was ok after the big russ. stayed on 20 .
VE7KBN - Enjoyed sprint as always- used HB1B and Bencher hand key. CU next time! .
W2SH - 20m stayed open for at least 90 minutes and the QSB could be tolerated. Activity on 40m seemed lower than usual. 80m was in good shape and at the end the skip was long with Florida signals easily copied in NJ. Given how carefully the activity is recorded for these monthly sprints, I calculate that my participation has now just reached the century mark. In actual fact February 2005 was my first sprint, but it was not recorded. I had forgotten my membership number and gave out an incorrect one throughout. With my error discovered, I was too ashamed to submit a log.
AA2VG - Couldn't stay the full Sprint but had fun. Nice to see everyone again. 72 AA2VG
N8BB - Well that is about as close to missing an event without actually missing it. Remembered with 12 minutes left in the sprint so I am at the bottom end with 4 contacts. But they were good contacts! Thanks to all, will try to do a better job of starting on time.
WB3FAE - Ran Battery power for this Sprint. Power outage in my town of Chicora....very little to no QRN....nice.
KB1UOH - Lots of strong sigs.
AL7JK - Greetings to all ! Used a homebrew 20 mtr transceiver this time around, had a blast despite the propagation conditions. Power output was 2 watts to a dipole strung from a birch tree in our front yard. Its amazing the operating skills that are displayed during Qrp events when the band conditions are marginal. Brings out the best in folks ! Looking forward to future Qso's with everyone. 72/73 from Eagle River, Alaska
