WH6LE - 4 QSOs in and realized was working 100 Watts! I need a checklist.

KA1DBE - My very first Sprint. Had Fun. Thanks to all those who heard me!

N0TA - Slow night in Colorado. Just quit after 1.5 hrs.

WB5UAA - Lots of fun as usual. Welcome K0HX and K7LVJ! Hope to see you again next sprint with your new membership numbers!

KF5RZG - Some of the QRS stations were getting over run by the big boys. Not sure if anything can be done about that, maybe run one that has a max WPM limit perpahpse. My first CW contest. Had a blast, thank you for putting it on.

KN1H - Thanks for another fun sprint! Got started late and had to QRT early, conditions pretty good, signals strong from all 3 coasts. Used IC 7200 and Nye Viking Master Key.

WA2JSG - Ran my IC-7000 at 5 watts to a multi-band vertical, using my Kent Str Key. 5 contacts on 20m, 7 on 40m, and 3 on 80m. Thanks to ll who heard me. 73 de Curt WA2JSG NJ

N3HEE - Excellent conditions on 20, 40 and 80 tonight. Lots of strong signals. K3 @ 5W Antenna 300 foot horizontal loop. Home brew straight key. 72 -Joe

WV8DH - Another fun sprint and many thanks to the organizers. Thanks also to everyone who heard my QRP signal. 72/73, Dave

N4KS - K2 @ 5w, dipole at 33 feet. Fun as usual. 73 to all. Ken

AB8FJ - Stayed on 40 meters for most of the Sprint. Noisy band conditions but most stations were fairly strong. K3/10 @5W to the Inverted L.

WD4OHD - No propagation on 80m tonight at my QTH. Sporadic activity with QSB on 20m. 40m was pretty noisy until about 0200Z. Got a late start and had trouble hearing stations through the high noise level during the first hour. Enjoyed it though, as usual.

KB3AAG - Tonight I got out my little KX1 that I hadn't used in years! I lost a lot of time when I got my paddles turned off and couldn't get them back on! The tuner said I was running 3 watts but the bar graph said only half of a watt so I don't know? It was fun but I sure missed my K3! If I didn't hear you I am sorry. Frank

K1IEE - Started on 40M and had high QRN noise level, went to 20M with lower QRN but not many signal so went back to 40M. Poor conditions and still had a good time on the sprint. Thanks to all 73 Dick

K3JZD - The Windows 7 to Windows 10 upgrade that I did a few days ago bit me. I could not get my Softrock RXTX SDR to send the received audio out to my headphones. Wasted over an hour trying to solve that. Finally I managed to get the received audio redirected to the speakers. Fooling around with that had me off balance during the second hour. But I still managed to make a few contacts. So, in spite of Murphy stepping in, I'm still going to call it a good Sprint

K3WWP - A Tale of Two Hours by John Shannon: It was the best of times in the first hour and the worst of times in the second. Yes, after a brief 15 minute fling on 20 with only 3 QSOs, 40 turned out to be the band here. In that first hour I was even getting some pileups in response to my CQs. Not massive ones, and instead of waiting to work me, the pileups quickly diminished. Still good enough to rack up a total of 20 QSOs by 0130Z. Then it seemed like a massive Faraday shield descended over my house, and I just wasn't being heard at all. Well, I did get two QSOs on 40 and one on 20 between 0130 and 0200Z. I decided enough of that and went to 80 where things were a little better with 8 more QSOs. Of course it was nice to work everybody, but especially nice to work some folks I haven't worked in a while now. I'd like to mention them by call - N9RLO, N4EWT, K7HAP, and WA2JSG. Good to hear you all again. Oh, and it was fun working the NAQCC VP and Pres back to back within a minute or so. Finally to end my book here, it was a lot of fun giving my new Popsicle stick key a real good workout. It performed like a real champion making every one of the several thousand dits and dahs flawlessly without even tiring out my arm. Popsicle stick key, you say? Check out my web site diary at or see the construction article in the August NAQCC newsletter to see what I'm talking about. Whew! That's it for the long soapbox.

AB4QL - The usual qrn and qsb still fun. Wish I could have spent more time at it. Looking forward to the next one. 72 Barry

W4DUK - Another good time! Was called by one station who wasn't a member and wasn't aware of the sprint. After completing our exchange, I took a moment to tell him about our club and to extend an invitation for him to check us out. Hope he does!

N1JI - Conditions weren't very good here in NH tonight. I made two contacts on 20 meters and the rest were on 40. Thanks for the contacts! Jock, N1JI

WG8Y - Hi all,20m had lot of signal agn tonite.Worked AA7VW,VERN in OR early on & heard WK6C in CA. but couldn't put enough smoke in the wire for him to hear me.Hi Hi Oh well, still fun trying. Did mostly S&Ping tonite. Called a little bit but wasn't into it. Sometimes it's more fun to just run up & down the bands. Great to hear everyone.Worked some old NAQCC Sprint Friends & worked some new ones. 72 all from N.C. Mark WG8Y

N7QR - FT840, 1958 Vibroplex Presentation. 20M was the band, nothing heard on 40 and 80 (the Sun was still up here.) On for an hour and a half. Heard maybe a half a dozen more but could not pull them in or they could not hear me. My 25th Sprint. See you next month. Russ

K4KRW - Operated from Sunset Beach, NC. KX3 and end fed half wave in a sloper configuration. All 40 meters tonight. Conditions during the first hour were better than second hour. Great hearing everyone. 73 - Richard

WB4BIN - Total bust for my first sprint. Heard two stations all night, and managed to work one. Called CQ a lot, and got one response, but could not pull him out of the noise. My apologies for that.

AK4NY - Played for about an hour, stayed on 40 the whole time, conditions were not very good, QRN seemed to be higher than most signals, tough copy on some of the QSO's

KE9DR - Stayed on 20 most the night. QRN bad on all bands. Once again a fun time. Thanks to everyone. 73 Bert KE9DR

K2YGM - Great time as usual. heard nothing on 20M. few extra stations on 80 towards the last fifteen minutes. Hope to see you all again next month. 72 Bob

N8ZYA - Mostly short range contacts tonight with only 10 different states. It was nice to work K3WWP in PA and also WB4OMM/3 in MD. Two of my favorite people on the ham bands.

WB4OMM - Working portable in Emmitsburg, MD. Started with good signals on 20M, made 10 Qs, including regular John K4BAI, and good FL friend Carl AA4MI; after an hour, went to 40M, and had to really work for the Qs! Was pleased to work both "Johns" - N8ZYA on 40M and K3WWP on 80M!! Not a bad night with a low wire antenna and 5W. Very pleased with results, 17 Qs and 12 states. Heard two 7 stations but they faded quickly away and never returned! I am hoping the sunspots come back real soon! Headed back home tomorrow to FL land, thanks to all that were here tonight! 72/73 and see you soon! Steve WB4OMM

AA7EE - Lots of weak and watery sigs with lots of fast and deep QSB, so it made for challenging operating. Lots of fun, and much patience was needed!

K9EYT - 20 meter's seemed to be were the action was this time. Rig KX3 G5RV Bencher paddle 73 Ray K9EYT

KF7WNS - QSB was a real battle tonight. Most stations on 20m I could only get the first half of their call...then, fade off never to be heard again. I could only spend the first hour, but it sounded like a good turn out. Hoping for better condx next month.

VY2/W1OH - First time in the sprint for quite a while. Vacationing on Prince Edward Island, Canada. Rig was KX2 on external LiFePO4 battery to 40m doublet at about 50 feet and 100 yards from salt water near Charlottetown. Thanks, NAQCC!

K4WLW - Bands were rough for me last night. 80m was S9 noise, and 40m was about S6 noise. Worked 20m the first hour, then managed a couple on 40m but my ears couldn't take the noise for long. Had fun and it was nice to work John, K3WWP, and Don, VE3DQN in Ontario. K3s at 5W to an end fed sloper. Thanks to everyone who puts on these sprints and does so much hard work for all of us to have fun. 73 until next month. Bill

KA5PVB - Only got to operate for 1 hour due to being NCS for our local clubs 2 meter net (Wed. at 8:00 PM local time). Had more fun on 20 meters until it closed (about 0150 UTC). 40 meters was VERY noisy and QRN was running about S-8 here all evening. Hope to do better next month. Thanks to those who answered my CQ's! 73 Chuck - KA5PVB

KA2KGP - Pretty good band conditions this sprint. 20m. was open nice for the first hr. 40 was in good shape. Some QRN on 80 but useable. Rig: IC-7000 at 5w. into dipole up 25 ft. and a straight key.

WB8LZG - Hello Sprinters! I fired up the trusty Argo 509 agn last night! Great conx here in MICH.last night as 20 was hoppin with sigs at start. 40 also proved vy gud. A big welcome to K7LVJ 8540. He sent 5W but had a new # so I counted him. Gud luck es hope to see u as a regular OM. Heard many old friends also. 20m seemed short, which allowed good QSOs wid eastern stns. had to pull the plug early at 10pm, but still managed a respectable score fer the night. SRI to a couple of you who I couldn't quite pull out. Tns fer trying. Lot's of fun wid the gang tonite! See u all next month ! 73. Gregg WB8LZG

K7ZI - Signals weak into Utah at beginning of sprint, stronger at end. Got tangled up with Boy Scout troop at camp, 25 minute QSO. 1st sprint in over a year--Too many conflicts during sprint time. Had great fun anyway!

WB0PYF - Conditions were good, only short time to work. Thanks for the new members. 72, Ray

K4BAI - 24 QSOs on 20M and 17 QSOs on 40M. 20M received signals were very good from all over, including as close as NC, AL and FL. But, many couldn't hear me calling. I didn't have a lot of luck calling CQ on either band. Mostly search and pounce tonight. 40M was a bit noisy, but signals from TX to MN and east were pretty good. No western signals heard. Tried listening to 80M and heard only loud static crashes and no sprint signals. We had a local thunderstorm about one hour before the start of the sprint and they remained in the area, but not close enough to hear thunder during the sprint. Activity seemed a bit down from usual, but that is probably the result of rather poor conditions and summer vacations. See you all next month, I hope. 73/72, John, K4BAI.

AC8JW - Good to get back to the Sprints

VE3GNU - Typical summer conditions, plus goodly number of intruders seemingly not aware of the sprint made it challenging, and hastening my departure. early. Thanks to all who participated---especially the early ops from PA. Argonaut V @5W and Bencher BY2 paddle.

VE3FUJ - The sprint went well for me, with only 1/2hr to devote to the sprint. Tnx to all contacts. Brion 3011

AB9CA - Got a late start. Missed the first 30 min. 20 was certainly short around 0100. First four Q's were GA, MS, GA, GA from near Mobile, AL. K4BAI is only 200 miles away. An enjoyable evening. Thanks for the Q's. 73 de dave ab9ca/4

N4MJ - Contributing factors to low score: 1. vacation time for many, 2. propagation was poor, 3. from this QTH the QRN was high (but it is summertime, HI). Checking the states worked it is easy to see all stations except two were east of the Mississippi; that's highly unusual. I did hear a KS and a TX station but was not able to work them. I'm anxious to see other reports about tonight's Sprint.

WB8ENE - Made more contacts than I usually do in one hour. Tried getting K9OSC on 40M, but I guess he thought I was a dupe since I already worked him on 20M. Used the Elecraft K1 this time. It was fun not having the panadapter that I usually use with my K3. Key was a Bencher RJ-1. Thanks for the contacts. See you in the next sprint. 73, Art

KU4A - Worst fading I've seen in awhile. Lots of weak signals. My apologies to those who called me that I didn't hear. Gave it up after a half hour.

W2JEK - Got on late. Only 1 QSO on 20, then 9 on 40, finished with 6 on 80. Conditions not great on 40 but did get down to Florida. Had to look up AI2T, number 8455. Hadn't realized we have that many members. Welcome to NAQCC. Had a good time. 72 and 73 Don Younger W2JEK #1135

WA2FBN - Fun sprint. LNR LD-5 at 5w using a Bulldog paddle. Thanks to everyone that copied my signal ruff night on 40m. Antenna EF half wave. 72 Ken

N8XMS - I arrived home at about 0130 after an overnight trip and a long drive from the Chicago area. I turned on the radio and made one quick sprint contact. Then I went to get the mail in, unpack, and do all of the normal post-trip chores, and that was it for my sprint. I hope that everyone had fun. At least I’ll get my participation point!

N4EWT - My first event in several years here. Going along happily until I heard a large static crash at 0212 and saw a lightning flash! Time to quit!!

KB1M - Thankfully the QRN was much better on 40 than the previous evening,20 only gave me one QSO.

W5ODS - Very noisy band conditions (s8-s9 noise levels) in OK but was able to work a handful of contacts. Happy for the challenge. 72's, Gary

W4OEP - Tnx to all for portable QSOs from Lake Ada, MN

W2SH - 20m was a bit unstable, but in about the same amount of time I was able to make the same number of QSOs there as on 40m where the activity level was disappointing. Stations on 80m only appeared in the final quarter hour, but signals were all strong except for one QSO that covered 475 miles. A couple of traffic nets appear at 0200Z near 3.560 mHz, but they only last a few minutes.

N5GW - I was back up on the Cumberland Plateau staying in a cabin. It was warm and humid but much better than back home in skeeter land (MS). None of the bands sounded very good. Moderate QRN is expected this time of year, but tonight the QSB was very bad. Most signals were fair at best. However as always it was fun.

NX1K - My first NAQCC Sprint. Very pleased with all the activity. Operated my new HB-!B using a Czech Army key. The key was bigger and weighs more than the rig. Very surprised at the mix of short (150 mi) and long (1800 mi) propagation on 20m.

KC3DOF - This was my first NAQCC sprint. Had a great time, and looking forward to more.

AA9WP - Hi everyone. Made it two months in a row. Interesting night using the vertical antenna rather than indoor dipole. Worked my neighbors, IL and MN, which normally does not happen. But very noisy conditions here. Maybe get the NVIS inverted vee up for next contest. See you then.

WX4RM - The QRN got me, along with wonky band conditions here tonight.

KD3CA - Great fun as usual, many thanks to those that called. Sorry to those I missed , perhaps next time . All the very best to all . 73 Don

AA7VW - I stayed with 20 meters this time. Conditions of heavy QRN and QSB plus the lite signals made it a challenge however the patience of the members added to the fun. I checked 40 meters once but it was very noisy. Experienced what appeared to be some intentional QRM but it was only for a minute or so of a whole lot of dots. Managed one contact through it. My sincere thanks to the sprint organizers and log checkers. This is an event worth participating in when I'm able to.

K7EW - Nice start: female and male voice WWV coming in S8 at 15.000. But kinda discouraging again! Heard and tried > once but could not raise: AE4YP/8, WB8LZG, W6JL, WB0PYF, AC7FF also VE2, TN, WY. None heard on 40 or 80! Still, I really like to participate! My straight key was a J37 Mae West; xcvr = KX-2/maiden voyage/ squeaking' new outa the box! Thank you!

AA4MI - Static levels were very high as usual in Florida. Lightning and thunder were eminent. 20M was operational but 40M marginal and 80M was impossible. But still looking forward to August! Had my longest 5W QSO so far with Oregon(sp?).

NF8M - Strange night for propagation. Lots of others also reporting 15-meter-like prop on 20 and even on 40. Sigs would be down in the mud then jump up to S9 for a few sec. I usually use the FT817 but with the noise and difficult copy I decided to use the TS590 for its better rcvr. Ran the pwr down to 5 watts & verified w/ my wattmeter that I was putting out just 5w.

NN4K - Next time I need to remind myself to leave the bug on the shelf.

N3CKI - First NAQCC Sprint. I will use GENLOG in the future.

K4WY - first sprint! many thanks! 72's K4WY
