WB5UAA - RI1ANO CQing and "listening up" from 7031 took a lot of room away from us NAQCCers! (I had to break a way and get him...) Haven't had much time for CW lately. It was good to get on for a little while tonight. TNX and CUL!

KC2MJT - As usual only had a half hour. Tonight used my ICOM718 with a Code Warrior. Low noise tonight, but signals seemed weak. Not many stations heard me this evening. Fun as always!

N4EEV - K3 turned down to 5w. First sprint in a few months with hurricane cleanup ongoing and jury duty took me out of commission. Thanks for the QSO, 72 Mike

KD0V - Very poor condition in Southern Minnesota.

K3RLL - K3 to the vertical nobody saw (HOA Restrictions): 40m sounded really noisy down here in the sunshine state this evening for some reason with signals coming and going like hurricanes in Florida. Couple that with QSB and copy was pretty challenging for the first 30 minutes. But signals picked up in the second half hour with really big signals from N5GW, WG8Y & WA4MQN. Good evening overall. 72/73 ... Don

N2ESE - Too much static only did one hour,73 Gary N2ESE

N8XMS - Possibly the worst conditions that I have experienced in recent memory! I didn't get home from church until almost halfway through the sprint and when I turned on the radio there was nothing but a lot of QRN. I fought it for about a half-hour and made 3 QSOs but then I quit and waited for ringing in my ears to settle down.

N2CN - D'oh! I left my power on 100 watts for the first few QSOs, so I was QRO for this sprint. 80 was a dream this evening, even without the extra power (HI). Thanks to all who came back to me.

K1IEE - The noise level was very high on 40M. Had one contact then went to 80M and stayed there. Lots of weak signals and strong signals band had QRN and QSB. Thanks to all who stayed with the poor condx 73 Dick

KK6EME - little hard to compete with cwt after 7 pm

KC7DM - ugh

WB4OMM - FT-2000 5W to G5RV Sloper at 35 feet, GenLog, WinKeyer, Mini Black Widow Paddle. Wow! Nothing heard on 20M.....and 40M was horribly noisy! Signals were kinda OK, but heavy QRN made for some challenging copy! Heard a few (including K3WWP) but they quickly faded away, never to return. Went to 80M just after 0300Z, heard nothing - and the QRN there was bad too. Went back to 40M, now the CWT contest folks were all over. Made two more Qs and then quit! Can't wait to have some propagation again...and hope this is not what the NOV SS SSB 'test will be like this weekend! Worked some regulars that I am always happy to work,and a few new folks.....good number of states. Surprised at how the bands were.... 72/73 to all...and a Safe and Happy Thanksgiving Holiday to all of you! See you soon! 73! Steve WB4OMM #5913

K4KBL - Don't know about the rest of our crew but between the noise and what seemed to be a contest that began about half way through our Sprint, I had a heck of a time to make just 9 contact in the full 2 hours... Terrible.

KK0I - ... tough night tonight. Managed to catch a few. Lots of noise on 80 meters. Maybe next time better conditions for me. Thanks for the contacts. 72, jack

WA2JSG - 40m was bad here, but thank goodness for 80m. Ran my IC-703 at 5w to a vertical. Kent Str key. Fun event.

WV8DH - Rough night tonight. 40 meters did not work for me at all as it appeared dead until the CWT guys got on and took over. 80 meters was noisy but did manage to make some contacts. Thanks to all who pulled me out. Running my IC-746Pro and JJ-38 key. Fun as always and look forward to next month. Best 72 & 73 from Wild and Wonderful West Virginia, Dave

NF5U - Late start tonight, was able to work the last hour, a few good signals out there and a lot of noise, thanks to all who pulled my signal out. I used my FT-817nd and dipole with the Vibroplex standard bug. I worked 6 on 40m and 2 on 80m. 73's thanks for another fun sprint. See you all next month.

NN9K - Interesting Sprint but I spent too much time at the start looking for west coast on 20-meters--then it turned into an 80-meter fun fest--but still had fun. AC2C's beta Spring logging program is GREAT!! Hope it available to the membership soon.....72 and Happy Thanksgiving to all!

AB4QL - Heavy QSB on 40. 80 was better. I am glad I got to spend a little time on this evening. I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving with family! 72 Barry

KX4S - All on 80M. I need to get my hearing aids tuned to cancel QRN! I checked 40M once and didn't hear a peep. Maybe we should add 160M to our Sprint bands for the next few years... Thanks to all who worked the club station. I appreciate the contacts and I appreciate all the work NAQCC does behind the scenes for us. Thanks! 73 from a high valley in the WV Appalachians. -- KX4S op: Jay W8AIM 72

KN1H - Thanks for another interesting sprint! Couldn't make a single contact on 40, luckily 80 was awake. I think W3TU was giving his SKCC nr as it is out of range for NAQCC, but I left it in the log as it is what was sent. 73, John, KN1H, Nye Viking Master key and IC-7200.

KJ4R - Got a late start and only operated for a little over an hour. Good band conditions on 40. Enjoyed it as always. 73 and thanks to everyone I worked.

K4KRW - This was the first time I was able to work an entire sprint in a while. Great hearing everyone. I got contacts on 3 bands and had contacts on 2 bands with 3 other participants. QSB was pretty bad at times and I couldn't pull out a few of you. Fun night though. Thanks everyone!

N4MJ - 80M was the place to be tonight. Unfortunately I spent too much time on 40m. that's the way it goes sometimes. HI HI Fun anyway and good to work some new ones. Thanks to all who participated. See ya next month. 73 de n4mj//glenn

K2YGM - Band conditions were as bad as I've ever experienced.. Even the close in stations were somewhat weak.. Not much heard on 20 so spent most of time on 80.. Thanks to those who make these sprints possible and to the log checkers as well. 72 de K2YGM

NF8M - Got on for about 45 minutes. Not much on 40 lately.

KJ3V - This was my 3 sprint and I still can't get a lot of stations. But had a great time. I broke out my Ten Tec Argonaut V and put it to use for this one. Next time it's going to be either my Heathkit HW 8 or 9. Can't wait for the next one. Hopefully the bands will be quieter since it will be more into winter for the next one. I still had a lot of QRN on 40 meters for this time of year here in AL.

WG8Y - Hi all, No 20m in NC tonite. Went to 40M & heard VP2MDL call QRZ on 7.030 & up one. Said what the heck lets try.Hit the VFO on the 817 went up one and got him on one call. Must not have been many calling him. Hi Hi. Then only worked 5 Q's in 40 min.on 40M. High QRN & signals were not to strong. Went to 80M & decided to call for a little bit. Wow. One of my best Sprints in awhile. I usually don't call CQ that much but wrked 37 Q's on 80m in the last hour & 20 minutes. Again,a lot of great signals and the qrn only made me have to ask for a few repeats tonite. Tnxs all for a fun 2 hours. Hope everyone has a Great Thanksgiving! 72 from N.C. Mark WG8Y

W4NLT - Didn't hear anything on 20; 40 was weak; lots of action on 80.

KQ3Z - Not the best of conditions but got better with time. 80 was better than 40. Had a 30 minute QSO in the middle of the Sprint. Sorry K0NIA, just couldn't pull you out of the crud. Thanks for the contacts and to those who make these Sprints, News Letter and Swap n Shop happen.

NA4O - I thought I would miss this one, but did manage to jump in for a few minutes at the end. 40 was covered up with another event, but 80 came through for me with a few contacts. Glad to be a part of another fine NAQCC Sprint. KX3, 5W, Vibroplex Straight Key.

W4HH - Operated for 45 minutes on 80, 40, 20 -- not a single contact. Heard a few weak, fading signals; called a dozen stations, wore out my arm calling CQ. Deep QSB. 40-meter QRM was as bad as the days of the Russian Woodpecker.

W4DUK - An enjoyable evening. Started on 80m for a couple of contacts, then to 40m for a few more, and then back to 80m for the bulk of my remaining time. Happy to pick up a few more member numbers for my next Friendship Club endorsement.

K3WWP - Let's go back to the evening before the sprint. Had someone told me then I'd make 50 QSOs from 25 states in the NAQCC sprint tomorrow evening, I'd have told them no way with the way conditions are tonight. Well conditions did pretty much of a 180 degree turn from last night to tonight and I did make 50 QSOs in 25 states. It really surprised me. I even made 11 QSOs in 9 states on 40M. All the rest on 80M. I did get an inkling things might be different when 90 minutes before the sprint RI1ANO and TO2SP were both booming in on 30M, but it still came as a pleasant surprise when the sprint started with both 40 and 80 hot here. Thanks to all I worked and apologies to the couple I couldn't pull through the QRM even with the great filters in the KX3. It was really crowded and with anything less than a KX3, I probably wouldn't have come close to 50 QSOs.

AF3Z - Enjoyed getting back on; it's been a while. Noise here is high but I managed, though on my last contact what I copied didn't add up... I had to delete that one. Sorry, whoever you were!

KF7Z - Tough sledding with condx tonite, most of the calls I got were just whispers, but had a great time while it lasted. Thanks to organizers. 73 Danny

W0ITT - High noise levels made things difficult on 40, and when CWT overlapped the last 30 minutes nothing was possible. Will try again next sprint. I hope to have an 80 meter antenna up for next time.

NO2D - Only had time for a few contacts. Enjoy the sprints. Thanks for those who make them possible. Pete, no2d

AA5OY - First Contact !


W3NP - Worked on my loop today and it was still halfway on the ground and hung up in some trees when it got dark. Got home from church and took a listen and then fired up the K3 @ 5 watts and was surprised to work 5 stations in 5 states in just a few minutes on 80 meters. Used my GHD cootie. 72 de West Virginia

KF7WNS - Only had a half hour to spend tonight and conditions on 40 pretty bad. Will be hoping for better bands next time. 72

W2NRA - Band conditions were to good. Quite a few stations couldn't hear me though I could hear them. As always, it was fun. Thank you for the QSOs. 73 de Art W2NRA #8866

AB8FJ - Terrible conditions here at my QTH. Managed a couple of contacts. Looking forward to the next sprint. K3/10 @ 5W to the Inverted L. Running trlinux on Ubuntu 16.04.


KE5YUM - No contacts tonight! Conditions were not good at my QTH, so this is the first log in years that I have submitted with zeros. Hopefully better conditions will prevail next month. Terry in North Texas

KD9VT - 80m was the money band tonight. I got run off twice (CW OPS and a digital station) I worked some great OPs including my three best friends. Thank you to all that called or answered me. 72 Dave, KD9VT

AH6AX - Enjoyed another fun sprint, despite getting a late start. 40m was 'fair' but lots of activity on 80m! 73/72!

KA4DRB - When the mini-CWT cranked up at 0300 it squeezed out us slowpokes. Thanks for the practice and apologies for my rusty fist and mangled prosigns.

AF4OI - Thanks to NAQCC for running this well-organized event. In KY, I found the 80m band was most productive for S&P with lots of stations shoulder to shoulder. I was running 5 watts into 80m wire dipole up 25 ft and using Genlog. Till next month, 73, Bob AF4OI

AA0W - Long band conditions on 40CW East and West coasts no north ,south or middle.

W3PNM - What a blast! 80 meters was awesome tonight. Tnx to all the hams I contacted.

WB9HFK - 80M Only. I thought the band was in pretty good condition - however, there was quite a bit of QSB. Thanks for all the QSO's - and see everyone next month. Happy Thanksgiving! 72, Mark WB9HFK

WB1GYZ - Agreed, poor cdx so pulled the plug early...but always a fun event.

WA2FBN - Very poor condx tonight. Nothing on 20m and poor on 40m. LNR MTR3B at 4w into EFHW up 25 ft. Vibroplex Vibrokeyer. Thanks to all who heard me. 72 Ken

K3JZD - Tried this event for the first 45 minutes. 40m only. Tried getting back to KE0CU in CO who was way down in the mud. He never heard me or anyine else and gave up. Tried getting back to a K4 in GA who was also way down in the mud. He never heard me or anyone else and he gave up. I was able to get back to K4KRW in NC, who was also way down in the mud. I never heard any others calling CQ. I could not find any focal point of NAQCC activity on 40m so I just kept tuning up and down and up and down until I got tired of doing that. I tried calling CQ periodically on various different frequencies for 5 minutes at a time - but no replies. Not a fun event for me. Jody - K3JZD

N8BB - Another fun night. Juggling between the hockey game on tv anf the sprint. Both were winners.......... KX3 5w Dipole Werner N8BB

KE0CU - Not especially noisy here but all signals were very weak. Thanks for staying with me!

W2JEK - Got on late. Found 20M dead and no activity on 40M. All the action seemed to be on 80M. Band was good with some QSB. Lost N4OW due to QSB and could not make a complete QSO. Otherwise had a lot of fun. 72 and 73 Don W2JEK

K4JPN - Nothing heard on 20M and could not raise anyone on 40M, 80M sum QRN, but was good. 72, Steve K4JPN

N8LA - KX-3, 5W, 200' Dipole up 35', W.U. 2A Legless Hand Key. 20 morbid: made me livid. 40 QRN city: left town. 80 only place where anything happenin': took me ~45 minutes to figger it out. Sincere apologies to station I couldn't dig out 'cuz of QSB, QRN, and bit of QRM on the side. Hope we can do it next time. Some "spectral harassment" from QRO stations also. Called CQ and WB4YHJ running 100W from AL answered. We had a FB QSO for 22 minutes: FB with me, love regular QSOs even more than contesting. Anyone hearing me, in contest or whatever, and wanting to QSO should give me a call. I will do it. Glad to work friend Werner, N8BB, just before finish. Have missed a few sprints looking for new therapist after Dr. Sigmund Fraud defenestrated himself. His name is Dr. C. G. Jungk-key. 72s to all. Lou, N8LA/QRP(mostly.)

K4RHG - 40 Meters wasn't too bad until some high power contest started blasting away at 25-30 wpm and pretty much covered our freqs. They were going so fast I couldn't copy what the contest was about.

WA1GWH - The 40M VP2MDL operation sort of messed things up for me. Never did get a NR from WA2JSG. WB8YXF kept throwing his call on top of us for VP2MDL to hear. Oh well. Thanks for the contacts! Garry

NN0SS - Conditions very poor in MN. Lots of QRN es QSB 8 out of 9 QSO on 80 meters

KA2KGP - 20m. was near dead here in WNY, 40 was VERY weak & 80 had hvy QRM. Rig: TenTec Argosy II at 5w. into G5RV up 25 ft.

W2SH - 20m was barely good for two QSOs before it closed. 40m was unstable with QSB that fairly often required repeats to complete a QSO, and then the CW ops showed up anywhere and pretty much everywhere between 7,030 to 7,045 kHz. 80m was the best of the three bands, but not by much. A Tentec 539 was manipulated by a Junker straight key.

AK3X - Missed the first 30 minutes or so, and was interrupted several times with other distractions. Signals on 40 at my location were very weak so went to 80 where conditions were better. Used my OHR-100A at 5watts and had a good time as usual. See you all next month. 72 Peter

AA2VG - I was not able to stay long tonight. After seeing how poor the conditions were on 40 meters I decided to make a couple of contacts on 80. Having only several contacts is at times like eating just one potato chip, it's not easy! I just couldn't leave 80 meters and had fun for the next 40 minutes. Tnx to all who make these fun sprints possible. 72 Peter AA2VG

KC3RN - Been away from QRP/CW for several months, but glad to be back. Was only able to work the first hour, but had a lot of fun. 80m was better at my QTH.

KA1DBE - Good to be back on 80 meters. Thanks for the Qs.

N4OW - Good first hour on 40, 80 meters was a slog for me. Some great sigs (599) heard on 40. QRp can do amazing things. Happy Holidays to all the fine ops in NAQCC 72/73 de N4ow 7700

N5GW - I was staying at a cabin up on the Cumberland Plateau of TN. I had a new rake tine key hooked up to the KX3, tuner and CFZ. At first I tried 20M which was almost dead but got two contacts. Moving to 40M it seemed sparsely populated. Then on to 80 which was in great shape, allowing most of my contacts. Since I was away from my MS home, I sent "TN" twice on each contact to limit confusion. W3TU sent me his SKCC # but I looked up his NAQCC #. Am looking forward to the milliwatt and 160M sprints.

N9RLO - 20 Meters nil, 40 Meters good, 80 Meters better here in Indiana. Rig was Icom IC-718 at 5 watts. Key was my Junker straight key. Antenna is an inverted V up 35 ft. in a tree. Thanks to everyone! I had alot of fun. See ya all next month and Happy Thanksgiving! 73, John N9RLO
