KC2MJT - Took 34 minutes to grab first QSO. Thank you KB9ILT for hanging in there. QRN was off the scale.
K3RLL - For my 100th NAQCC Sprint it didn't sound like a lot of participation, or at least I wasn't hearing a lot "NA" this evening. Appreciate the patient and skilled ops with whom I had the good fortune to successfully exchange info this evening. 72/73 ... Don
WB4OMM - The bands here were HORRIBLE. Worst I have ever seen. Nothing on 20M, nothing on 80M, and just a few on 40M. The few signals I heard on 40M were mushy and S5 at best. Called several folks (KM4ZZ, KI0F, N4MJ) a few times over a 30 min period, finally got Larry W9CC. I did something I have never done before...I quit! It would probably have helped if I had my regular antennas up. I took everything down last week for Hurricane Irma, and have not had the chance to get them back up - was able to tune my A3S Beam (with the 30M add on kit) on 40M (I was surprised). But the tower is cranked down, so the antenna is at 25 feet or so. Not much for receiving or transmitting! Sigh.....oh well, always next month! 72/73 to all! Steve WB4OMM
KD3CA - Pretty tough conditions here, storm about , bands were very QRN , Shut down early. Hope next month conditions better . 73 to all . Don
KJ4R - Another good sprint. Called it quits early. I got called into work at 2 AM this morning so my sleep schedule is all messed up, so going to try and get back on track. Thanks to everyone who called. 73 until next month.
WB7EUX - Just happened to notice this was sprint night when I dialed up the SKCC web site. Great fun at 5 watts on 80m. Two contacts and both were great! Thanks to the ops and organizers.
K9OSC - Stayed on 40 meters all night as conditions were excellent and no noise! Had a great time and thanks to all. See you next month.
K4KRW - Bands were pretty bad here in NC. 80 was noisy and 40 was very quiet with very few signals. Thanks everyone.
KN1H - Difficult conditions here, lots of QSB. Lost a couple of QSOs half way through, sorry! Tried out an OCF dipole tonight and it beat my usual end-fed wire every time, guess its a keeper.
WI5H - Thunderstorms in area. Got started late and made one on 20. Then 20 went dead. S9 noise on 40 but made one more. No QRP heard on 80. Not a good night. Didn't get any rain either. Dry as dust! 72, CU AGN DIT DIT
KK7A - First NAQCC Sprint. Will be more fun with an outside antenna.
WA4ZOF - Stayed on 40 most of the sprint did go to 20 just for a look see and worked NF7WNS in OR what a SIGNAL .... 80 to noisy ... CUL TOM WA4ZOF
KQ3Z - Only was able to work the last 25 minutes and made only 2 contacts. Not very many signals heard at my QTH. Thanks for the 2 contacts and thanks to those who make the Sprints and Newsletter happen.
KB8FE - Nice weather in northern Ohio tonight. Not many strong signals after 10 PM local time.
WV8DH - Wow was it ever rough tonight. The noise lever was really high bot on 40 and 80. Ran my Icom IC-746PRO at 5 watts and it did as well as it could. Hope next month is better. Thanks to all who did copy me and of course the organizers of the sprints. Best 72 from Wild and Wonderful West Virginia. Dave, WV8DH
N0TA - Fair evening: 5 on 20m, 21 on 40m. 80m appeared dead. K3, doublet & vertical, GenLog. Thanks for the Q's!
AA2VG - Did some experimenting tonight with the KX3 and the Bencher paddles. Lots of QRN and QSB so I had to struggle at times to get the full calls. The XYL didn't help when she turned on the built in vacuum with the motor just 10 feet from my radio desk..... Gary WA0ZSU you were vacuumed out of my headset!! Thanks for calling back to make the contact. 72 Peter AA2VG
VE3DTI - Rig: IC-703 @ 5W. Key: Scheunemann Kleine Taste. Good signals in 40m. 72 All de Jose VE3DTI.
K1IEE - Stayed on 40M until the last half hour then tried 80M. Both bands had high QRN and some QSB. Nice to work Gordon VE7YU in BC. Signals in general were weak most 559 including Walt KB1M in NH. Thanks to all 73 Dick
AB8FJ - Decided to go back to the basics this evening. Ran my Ten-Tec Rebel on 40M and my SW-80 on 80M. Key used was my old Novice brass key purchased from Radio Shack back in 1971.
KF7WNS - What a great night...equal numbers on 20 and 40. 20m held out quite a while and 40m had a really good turn out. I'll look forward to seeing how many stations participated tonight. 72 to all
K4KBL - Great Time this evening...40 began to fade for the last 30 minutes or so but still made a few more contacts at the end.
K2YGM - Had to take a 30 min break to rest my ears due to QRN from power lines..... Nothing heard on 20 here, so stayed on 40/80.....Lots of fun as usual and look forward to next month. 72 de K2YGM Bob
WG8Y - Hi all,Was half hr late getting started. Then tried for 15 min. to work N0TA,WK6L & KF7WNS,CO.CA&OR ON 20M BUT NO DICE.Remembered I had rolled up the radials on my hustler vert. today b-4 mowing,Hi HI.Moved on to 40M. 40m was not that gud here in N.C. for me anyway. Was hard going making contacts.Went to 80m & most signals were very gud.Anyway had fun but need to find a permanent spot for my hustler and tack the radials down.72 from N.C. Mark WG8Y
KG7VAK - First sprint on new skywire antenna. Lots of fun on 40. No love on 20 or 80.
KI8FV - A rough night with a lot of qsb. I had a couple i started but then they were just gone. Lots of fun. 72, Steve KI8FV
VA3NU - Nothing heard on 20 M so stayed on 40 M for the sprint. Mostly weak signals and QSB to make things interesting. Fun as usual. Larry VA3NU
W2JEK - Got on late. 40M was long so went to 80M. Had a good time. 72 and 73 Don Younger W2JEK
K3WWP - I can't recall when I've worked so hard to make just 36 QSOs. The bands were deplorable here to say the least. Out of the 36, I would say only about a handful were above my noise level far enough for easy copy. Still I enjoyed the challenge and it was rewarding to get that many QSOs considering the conditions. There were at least a couple stations I just couldn't pull out of the noise. Hopefully I did work you later in the sprint. If not, I'm sorry. I worked a couple stations I don't think I've ever worked before - WA0ZSU and WD8RYC. That's going by memory without checking my Access log, and my memory is not what it used to be so I could be wrong. 80 meters was THE band tonight with 27 of my 36 QSOs there. I'm glad a lot of folks are starting to come to 80 now that summer and its noise is winding down.
K9QEW - Band conditions FAIR. Some what better at the start. HB 5w Funmitter. into a 4btv. J38 key.
K3JZD - Just used 40m. It was nice to see 40m behaving a little more normally. Still some QSB and a little QRN, but was nice and long tonight (UT and ID from PA). Used a KX3 and a 59' sloped EFRW this time. Jody - K3JZD
NA4O - Could only make the last hour, but had another successful sprint. The last station (VE3RIA) gave me a member number, but it does not match the member records, so I am reporting that as a non-member contact. Somebody straighten me out if I am wrong.
AE7CG - Severe QSB and significant QRN on 20M. Hope for better conditions next month. 72 from Arizona, AE7CG
WB2LQF - This started out as a promising sprint when I made my first 40M QSO with KY at exactly 0030Z. Then I quickly switched to 20M to check it out and heard Oregon but no joy. Went back to 40M and the night turned to absolute crap! I can't remember a worse night. Nice low noise level here in NY but very few signals. The ones I heard were being subjected to incredibly deep QSB. Oh well, that's radio!
KD9EBS - Thank you all. Dipole ANT at 25 feet in the attic. The RIG is Youkits HB1B 5 Watt. 72! 73! KD9EBS
N7QR - IC706 and a 1958 Vibroplex Presentation to a ground mounted Butternut HF6V without radials. 40 was the band, but heavy QSB. (I hope I got the calls and the numbers right!) Only on fer an hour as I had to go to the monthly water boarding. Russ, Portland OR
W3NP - Condx were not too hot here in WV. Nothing worked on 20, 40 was a bit noisy as was 80. Used my Ten Tec Eagle @ 5 watts to the 160 meter Horizontal Loop @ 45'. Key was my W1SFR torsion bar cootie. 72 de West Virginia
KB1CKT - Been too long, was fun to try my hand again
VE3RCN - Very tired, but stayed up to hand out a few contacts to who could hear me in the 30 minutes I was in the chair.
VE7YU - Twenty was good until the contest started then sigs dropped way down. Lots of activity on 40 but QRN/QSB very bad.Did manage to work K1IEE for the East Coast - more like ESP than radio! 73 Gord
WB8LZG - WB8LZG GUD EVENING SPRINTERS! FUN NIGHT TONIGHT. GOT ON 20 AT THE START ,BUT ONLY HEARD K7TQ. WENT TO 40 ES BAND WAS HOPPING BUT NOISY . i LOST A qso WID KN1H, HALFWAY THRU HE JUST FADED AWAY.....I DID MANAGE TO PICK HIM UP LATER ON 80M SO THAT WAS NICE TO GET THRU. 80 WAS VY NOISY HR IN MICH. AND NOT MANY SIGS THERE. PULLED THE PLUG A BIT EARLY. HOPE TO SEE U ALL NEXT MONTH. 73 GREGG WB8LZG
WA3FIR - At this end 40 and 80 had almost no noise which is rare. I heard many stations on 40 to the point where the QRM from NA stations was like some of the "bigger" contests. For some reason I could not work many that I heard. 80 was dead in the beginning but picked up later.
KE5YUM - A loose wire on my key interrupted my sprint, but I had a good time anyway. Conditions were good in NTX. Thanks to W2SH and W4OEP (who had to endure my keying!)All the best, Terry
W2NRA - It was good to be back in a NAQCC Sprint even in poor band conditions. I had fun. Thanks for the QSOs. 73 Art W2NRA #8866
AC2C - Very little time this month with too many distractions.
KA2KGP - Lousy band conditions this sprint. 20m. was dead here in WNY. 40 & 80 both had weak signals and QSB/QRN. Just terrible. Rig: ICOM IC-7000 at 5w. into dipole up 25 ft.
N4MJ - Slow night. QRN was bothersome. Tnx to all who participated. BTW, I worked a station using the call VE3RIA, gave a number 1109. Not in membership list. Emailed him and NO he did not participate in this Sprint. Cost me points. Signal was LOUD and Op was steady on the key. Heard numerous times, so likely others worked him, too.
N8XMS - After getting home from midweek church I had about 3 minutes available to get on the air before the start of a family activity that was scheduled to take the rest of the evening. So I made one QSO just to be able to participate a little. Next month it's our special anniversary celebration sprint!
K4WLW - Well, I survived hurricane Irma here in Florida and was happy to have a few minutes to work the Sprint, after missing the last several. Was only able to work the first 30 minutes but had fun as always. Bands were a little rough here. Heard nothing on 20 or 80 and got all of my contacts on 40, with an S6 noise level. Rig was an IC-7300 at 5W to an end-fed sloper and a Begali Mono key. Thanks as always for those who take the time to put on these Sprints and looking forward to better bands next month. 73-Bill
WA0ZSU - My first Sprint, so I kept my power down to 2.5 watts and used my straight key so I wouldn't be too excited . Excellent exercise from a QRP point of view, will definitely participate in future events. Many thanks to the people I worked.
WA2FBN - Poor band conditions tonight. Tnx to all who could pull my sig out. Vibroplex Vibrokeyer single paddle; 5 watts to dipole. 72 Ken
K1IX - Good activity despite high noise levels, split ops between 40 & 80
KB0ETU - Got back from the airport with 20 minutes left in the sprint. Seemed like everyone was either on the same frequency, or not on the air at all. Heard nothing on 80 meters or 20 meters. Anyway, better luck next month. K-2 to G5RV up 35 feet. 72, Phil
K4BAI - FT1000MP, 5W. Forgot about the sprint after spending two days out of town. Only operated about one hour. 20 QSOs on 40M and 3 on 80M. Both bands seemed to be in good shape. On 40 worked as far out as OR, ID, BC, and CT, and as close as VA, IN, and MO. On 80M, worked NC and MS. Thanks for all QSOs. Didn't operate on 20M this month, so I fall back into the SWA division. 73/73, John.
K7ZI - DID OK, CONSIDERING BROKEN PART OF DRIVEN ELEMENT FROM BEAM ANTENNA LYING ON OCF ANTENNA. EASTERN SIGNALS WEAK, SEVERAL ATTEMPTS MET WITH FAILURE BECAUSE OF STRONGER, NEAR-BY SIGNALS. QRM FROM QRO STATIONS ALWAYS A PROBLEM. K2 RIG WORKED FLAWLESSLY.
N4OW - Tough going from FL. Rapid QSB had stations fading out before the exchange could be completed. My 80m Loop was down due to Irma. The mobile Hustler did what it could Next month has to be better. 72's to all the fine QRP ops. AL, N4ow 7700
K3NLT - The band was tough tonite. Very few participants heard and signals were weak. Stuck it out for the first hour, then decided to call it for this one. I hope for better results next time after time change. Russ K3NLT
KB1M - 40 mtrs seemed finicky with the QSB, there seemed to be a pipeline to NC with five stations worked and best signals. 72/73, Walt
WX4RM - Very high noise levels here tonight. Just glad I was heard on the west coast thru all of it. Always fun.
N5GW - KX3 with rake tine straight key to CFZ. 20M was almost dead with only a few weak signals, but was able to snare K7TQ, KB1M and KF7WNS. Almost all the rest on 40M which was the main band, although QRN and QSB were bad most of the time. Only one 80M QSO with K4BAI.
N7KM - The leaves are turning high in our mountains. My wife and I went camping at near 8000 feet. I put up my end fed on a 30 foot jacklite pole as an inverted vee. The heavy winds collapsed my pole twice during the sprint. Sorry to the guys I lost in mid contact. It was fun, low noise and 40 meters produced a exciting sprint for me. Thanks to all. 72, Ken
W2SH - 20m was only open for a few minutes at the start. 40m was extremely noisy and it took me a half hour after arriving there to make my first QSO! The skip was unusually long with that QSO over a 1,200 mile path. My nine other 40m QSOs covered distances ranging from 600 to 2,100 miles. Switching to 80m for the final half hour to 80m made for much more pleasant operating with signal strengths easily surpassing a noise level that was decidedly less than on 40m, and my 11 QSOs there represented a satisfying activity rate.
NN0SS - 40 meters was the band here in MN. Nothing on 20 meters and Extreme QRN on 80 meters. Enjoyable sprint as always.
N2JJF - 20M dead at start of sprint. Lots of weak signals heard on 40M. Only managed to work 4 and finished up on 80m with a couple. See you during anniversary week.Listen out for N2A denis n2jjf
AF4OI - Thanks to NAQCC for another nice NA Sprint !! I worked the 40m band for the duration, pushing 5 watts into my stealth wire dipole. It seemed that the propagation was noticeably down from last Sprint, so much so, that I was initially worried that my antenna may have fallen out of the tree. Then, there was significant periods of QSB to further separate the â€œMen from the Boysâ€. I checked my antenna and itâ€™s still up. Till next time, 73 Bob â€“ AF4OI, NA# 8923, KY
KG6UBG - Hope to work N6A from six land during NAQCC 13th !!
AK3X - Only had time for a few minutes at the beginning and end of the sprint. 40M only with an MFJ9200 at 5 watts (running on 10.8 volts). For the few minutes that I was on, the band seemed pretty good, although there was some inopportune QSB. 72 to all until next month. Peter
KB9ILT - Recently moved to NC and a sprint seemed like a good way to test out the new QTH. Tossed a wire into a tree and gave it a whirl. Twenty meters was dead, 40 was good and 80 was even better. Many strong signals with several over S9.
K9EYT - Rig, Elecraft KX3/PK3 ,Bencher Paddle , battery powered with a LiFe 8400mah ZIPPY. 20/40m loaded Dipole at 25ft, 20 was dead here near Chicago 40 slow. 73 CU all next time Ray K9EYT
N9RLO - Worked only 40 meters. 20 was dead here and 80 was too noisey. Signals were Fairly good but the QRN was bad. My old ears could only stand about 45 minutes of the noise. I had some problems with QRM also. Thanks all and 73, John, Upland, IN
WB1GYZ - In times of old when hams were bold Conditions didn't matter They took to the air with a mighty flair And added to the splatter
