SOAPBOX:

KD0V - Conditions were very poor in Southern Minnesota. 20M was dead and 40M appeared to die around 0100Z. 80M had a constant S9+ QRN. .

KC2EGL - First sprint in ages. Operating from the QTH of K3WWP. I got my Wednesday's mixed up. I thought it was pizza night. Hi-Hi!!! .

AC2C - Finally got to participate in a sprint again !!!

K3WWP - Well, the pizza with Mike was good even if band conditions weren't all that good with my strong local noise. More info in my web site diary. .

N7QR - IC706 and a 1958 Vibroplex Presentation to a ground mounted Butternut HF6V vertical without radials with a tuner. Nothing on 20 or 80 and not much on 40. Only did the first hour. CU next month, Russ Portland, OR .

WZ0W - Another fun sprint. I tried 20m for a bit at the beginning, and 80m for a minute or two at the end, but only made QSOs on 40m.

WA4AAK - Thanks, everyone, for welcoming me to my first N AQCC sprint! Worked 5 NAQCC members on 40m. Heard no NA sprint stations on 80 or 20. 72! .

NU4M - I haven't participated in awhile so I turned it down and made three qso's. Had fun .

NF8M - Op time about 1 hr. Didn't hear too many stations tonight. Tnx QSOs es 72

K3RLL - Tough sledding tonight: late start and slow harvest. Surprised to find stronger, clearer signals below 7.040. Need to remember that! (Smile) Nice to work 'OMM back in FL. Still hot down there Steve? 72/73 ... Don

NO2D - Thunderstorms blew through at 6:30 MDT, so did not turn rig on till 7:30. Nothing on 20 meters. Lots of static. One calling CQ got wiped by a TI station calling CQ. Band long, I guess! Thanks as always to those that make the sprints possible. Pete, NO2D.

N9SE - Manage to squeak out a few QSOs after the storms rolled through. .

WB4OMM - Got a late start due to my son's birthday dinner....but looks like I didn't miss too much! 20M was already gone, 80M had no signals. 40M started off OK, then got really noisy (S6 on the meter) and the signals got weak. Gave a lot of 339s tonight (sorry). Surprised when NO2D called me from CO with a nice 559 signal; and shocked when KK6M called me - he was a 559 also! Was happy to QSO with my good friend K3RLL....but his only a 339 and QSB.... and to work a few regulars and a few new folks. By 10pm local (0200Z) 40m was done too. Had a whopper of a signal call me near the end (500W!) - not a member, but appreciated the call! Still had fun, glad I could get on the air. 72/73 to all! Steve WB4OMM #5913

N8XMS - Because of some schedule conflicts I really didn't think that I was going to be able to do the sprint at all. But I somehow I managed to get on for a couple of QSOs right near the end. Certainly not a score worth bragging about but I am very glad that I was able to continue my unbroken chain of monthly sprint participation going back to October of 2008 - 10 complete years!

K5MBA - New Jersey was all I heard on 20M and made 3 NJ contacts when the Sprint started. No other 20M signals heard so I finished the evening on 40. Had a great time. Thank you.

WA2NYY - Got on for the last 15 minutes after a long time missing the sprints due to conflicting hobbies. Not much heard. Was able to work K4KBL who was loud on 40 into NY. 72 Mark .

KF7WNS - Happy to be able to play tonight...been a while. All 40m contacts. Seemed to be a good turnout. 72

K1IEE - Sprint seemed to get to a slow start on 40M. Band did pick up and heard lots of signals, worked NH and long to MO. Good sprint. Thanks to all 73 Dick

NF5U - Another great night of QRP CW fun.Worked 40m and the band changed several times during the 2 hour period. I checked 80m and 20m to no avail. Used my trusty Yaesu FT-817nd into a dipole at 33ft, the 1969 Vibroplex Deluxe Model never missed a beat. Looking foward to the 14th Anniversary Event next month. 73's to all!

NA4O - Things seemed to be going along fine and then everyone seemed to go away about 20 minutes from the end. But another very nice sprint is now in the books.

N8HWV - Glad I could get on tonight. Search and pounce only thing that worked for me. A few strong signals but most just above the noise. Always enjoy this sprint.

WG8Y - Hi all, Got started on time but got side tracked switching rigs. Started with my FT-817 but switched to my QRP Labs QCX 40m Kit for a while till I got the bug to go back to 80M. The QCX hears pretty gud. The 817 was at 5 watts & the QCX puts out 3 watts. Worked AZ, W7GM then heard & worked OR,KF7WNS. Both on 40m. Great! I'm usually happy if I hear them on 20 meters. Hi Hi. Still fun despite the QRN. Thanks for the repeats guys. 72 from N.C. Mark WG8Y

K7EK - First NAQCC Sprint. I had a blast but only made a few contacts. 40m was the place to be. 80m was excessively noisy and 20m all but dead. Only heard one weak station. Getting ready for N4A anniversary operation. That is going to be fun! I can hardly wait. Thanks to all that pulled me out of the noise.

KJ4R - Almost messed up and missed this Sprint. I forgot about it! Got home from church ate supper and got on the rig. I had a nice ragchew with K8HGX and then W9GPP..... Started tuning around and heard others calling "CQ NA" and realized I was missing the sprint. Made my first contact after 0200. Managed to work 5 stations and two of them I could barely hear. Hope to get back into the normal swing of things next month. PFR 3B and old Speed X straight key spruced up with one of WB8LZG's nice wooden knobs. 73's to everyone.

KD3CA - Bands here were very noisy with QRN , sorry to a couple stations I lost. Only stayed on for about 1 hour with all the QRN .Best 73 to all Don

N4MJ - 40M was squirrely, some short and some long Qs. Surprised with the NE Qs and the last one in the NW (OR). Fun evening. Thanks to all participants. If I didn't work ya it is because I didn't hear ya !!! With cooler wx around the corner maybe the bands will be better and more consistent. BTW heard nothing on 20M or 80M. 73 de n4mj//glenn

K4KRW - KX3 tonight. After the first hour things were pretty quiet. Nothing on 20m tonight. Spent most time on 40m. I got a couple contacts on 80m. Fun night. Thanks everyone. Richard

K4KBL - Really had a great time this evening !! There was a station or two near the end that I tried to pull out but just too far in the weeds tonight. Please take a look at the newly established NAQCC Facebook page !!!

KN1H - Thanks for another fun Sprint! 20M seemed completely dead and 80M was very noisy. Luckily 40M was open to everywhere both far and near. Used IC-7300 @5W and Nye Viking Master Key.

AL7JK - Started out on 20 mtrs, couldnt hear any stns. Called CQ about every ten minutes or so, got one spot on the RBN from Japan. Moved to 40 mtrs, kept at it, sifting through the noise level. Thank you to the NAQCC for this event. Will try again next month. 72/73 to all ! .

WA6EEM - This was my first NAQCC Sprint. Thanks to everyone. I will have an NAQCC Nr. by the next one. I was surprised at the number of stations calling CQ NA. Thanks to W8ES for the invite.

VE3RDE - Possibly the worse propagation condx ever for me. Yeech! Oh well, still fun to pick people out of the noise. See you next month!

K3ESE - It's been a long time since I played in one of these, and it sure was fun! This is the first time I participated with a straight key, and that was a little taxing. Thanks to the ops that dug out my sigs, and stayed with me through many AGN? AGN? and NR NR PSE K, etc. Rig was the K2. Spent the first fruitless 30 minutes on 20M.

AC9EZ - I really enjoyed this month's sprint. This was my first time really participating in the NAQCC sprint. The fine operating of my fellow hams was much appreciated! 73/72 and good dx! Jim ac9ez

WB8LZG - Hello fellow sprinters! Good sprint tonight. I used my FT 1200 at 5 watts. I started out on 20m wid a couple CQs, but nobody there. 40m was busy wid stns and lots of sprinter's there. Signals seemed a bit sown, es noisy. 80m was vy oisy here in Mich, so only a couple Q's there. A big welcome to WA4AAK. Sorry to K4ZEB for loosing you. I got the call es some info and then you faded out to the either OM. better luck next sprint. I heard N8LA, but he didn't hear me ???? lot's of fun as usuall. See u all next time. 73 Gregg WB8LZG

KA5TJS - Did not hear much on 20 so spent most time on 40. Had fun guys. Conditions poor here in ETX. Used the IC7410 at 5 watts and my home brew cootie.

K5YNC - This was my very first NAQCC sprint. Thank you to the OMs who had to listen to my sloppy nervous fist. I had fun and can't wait for the next time. 73 K5YNC

VE9BEL - I was trying out my new old Ten Tec Argosy and an HK-708 straight key. Great filtering...I can now use the notch filter to pick stations out from the crowd...hi hi. 73 Bernard .

VE3GNU - Conditions continue to remain challenging, signals of varying strength, length, and speed. Special thanks to K4KRW---whose patience in NC managed me to garner my first contact this time. K2 and Begali paddle, and Argonaut V and Bencher paddle. Thanks to all, and looking forward to 'better times ahead' Ernie (VE3GNU) .

KE5YUM - My 92nd sprint. Conditions were noisy in north Texas along the Red River, and I was surprised to hear W2SH answer my call. K4KBL had a big signal as well. Looking forward to cooler weather and better band conditions. 5 Watts. FT 817. .

AA0W - Another nite of thunderstorms heavy QRN and QSB. KX2 internal battery .

KB8FE - Rather weak signals on 40 meters in northern Ohio tonight. .

WB9HFK - Limited time. Thanks for the Q's. 72, Mark WB9HFK .

KA2KGP - 40m. & 80m. were the only usable bands here in WNY. QSB was bad, thanks to all who hung in there with repeats. Rig: IC-7000 at 5w. into G5RV up 25 ft. .

KU4A - Worked N2ESE and K3ESE. Worked member number 555 and 5555. Fortunately I was able to keep it all straight :-). .

W2BJN - At this QTH, 40m was the only viable band in play last evening. Sincerely enjoyed the event! Looking forward to all of our upcoming activities in October. 72 de Joel

WD0K - Storms in area, expected heavy qrn. 20 was more noisy than 40 here in the metro. Worked a station in ID, turned out not to be a member. On average, signals were ok to copy. Heard my neighbow N0AR, but didnt answer my call. Fun Sprint; 72 de wd0k .

K2UFT - Good to be back at Sprint after long period of inactivity. Nothing heard on 80 or 20

N8LA - Started on 20 at 0030. Heard only noise, even after calling CQ NA. Went to 40. Heard a few signals and called CQ NA, but could not hear any responses. Apologies to WB8LZG and others whose responses I could not copy. Went to 80 and heard a few signals, but could not copy any responses there either. Finally, at 0145, camped out on 7045 and kept calling CQ NA. Finally heard WA6EEM and was able to make a good contact at 0159. He doesn't have NAQCC number yet, but says he will have one for next sprint. I look forward to working him again. We did exchange SKCC numbers, however. Also, KB9ILT and NO2D came back to my CQ NAs. Thanks to all who worked, or tried to work, me. I hope to work everyone in the next sprint. Hope springs eternal in my breast; I may never BE, but always TO BE, blessed (although I was "blessed" with a 2B, of the Drake variety, last week.) Best 72s to all and to all a good day. Lou, N8LA

WA1GWH - 40M quite noisy at the start from here near Syracuse, NY. 8 SPCs, pretty good for 40M in the evening and a low dipole. Not working many OPs closer in any more. Thinking of changing to a vertical. Thanks for the contacts! 72, Garry .

NN0SS - All my QSO's were on 40 meters. The band conditions were variable here in MN. Tnx to all for the contacts and an enjoyable evening. I always look forward to the NAQCC sprints.

WX4RM - Managed 1 contact on 80, none on 20 (dead as a doornail), and a dozen on 40 meters. I am glad that I was able to beat my number of contacts from last month. Its just like fishing, ya never know what you are going to get (hihi). .

W2SH - 20m closed after just three QSOs. The skip on 40m was long, and the apparent paucity of signals was probably due to closer-in stations simply not being heard. 80m had robust signals but disappointingly few stations on the band; it's now time to give 80m more attention! .

KB9ILT - Rather noisy conditions. As usual, 40 meters was the place to be. Nothing on 20, a few on 80.

WB1GYZ - All Q-5 armchair copy with several DX entries...or was that a dream last night?

KI4EZL - I had fun running my little MTR3b on a 9 volt transistor radio type battery. The bug I used was my 90 degree VizKey. Lots of fun.

N0AR - Tonight the only band usable was 40. Once again local TS activity ruled the airwaves! Good fun to work you all. 73 Scott N0AR St.Paul MN .

AK3X - So many hobbies, so little time. Got home from a banjo gig and snuck in two quick contacts. Maybe next month there won't be a conflict of interests! 72.. Peter .

K5GQ - Q3ESE HAD A PILE UP - UNABLE TO WORK I believe there were two stations I tried to work but could not copy an exchange or confirm call sign.

KB1M - As always a fun filled evening working members of the worlds finest QRP club, stations seemed well spread out which helped with the QRM. GA was the favored state with 4 QSO's. 72,73, Walt

N8BB - Not sure why but NR3Z gave his number as 4687. Does not agree with the membership list. Oh well, so I don't get a gold star this time. Noisy bands tonight so I didn't do very well. See you all next time. Werner N8BB KX3 5w dipole

VE3SV - I ran a limited sprint operating between 0100-0130 UTC. I only logged one station (Thanks KB9ILT) on my new-to-me, N9AY transceiver. I was able to hear other stations but my CW is so rusty I was unable to log additional stations. Had fun and hope to run another sprint soon. .

W2JEK - GOT ON LATE. STARTED ON 80 AND WENT TO 40 AT THE END. GOOD CONDITIONS. HAD FUN. 72 AND 73 DON W2JEK

NX1K - Operated from my daughter's house in Washington, DC. Set up the antenna in the afternoon and enjoyed the sprint that evening. Was very pleased with some long distance contacts to MN and KS.

VE3DQN - Operated portable from an island (ON-302) in the Big Rideau Lake. Great scenery, loons playing in the water in front of me. Had high noise level--approaching storm?--but managed to complete a few QSO's.

K2YGM - Got home late and found the band kind of noisy here tonight. Just tuned around and gave out a few points 72 de K2YGM Bob

AA5LH - Many more QSO's than in past months. Nice to hear many stations
