WA1GWH - 40M was hopping, at least early on. From here near Syracuse, NY the closest in I worked was OH and ON. Most farther out, including GA, OK, MO, WI, and OR. 72 and TNX for the contacts! Garry
KE5YUM - I could only spend a few minutes but i managed to work two easily with my random wire at 25 feet. Thanks to those who worked me. I am getting close to 100 sprints. FT 817 @ 5 watts.
WB1GYZ - Got my usual two bander Mark,WB9HFK. Knock the cans off your head sigs came from: AH6AU, AC2C, NZ1J my neighbor, N3LPJ, K2IZ, N2ESE, and KA2KGP, all had FB sigs for such poor cdx.
K4RHG - Fewer QSOs than last month but still a lot of fun. Hope to meet some fellow QRPers at Dayton next month.
K3RLL - K3 to HB 9:1 Unun to wire up PVC pole, over garage roof and down matching pole on other side (HOA Antenna Restrictions). Lots of good signals but RBN kept telling me I need a better antenna (or move). Nice to work N2CN tonight. Big signal into FL tonight was K9EZ. 72/73 ... Don .
KA2KGP - 20m. was dead, 40 & 80 were in good shape but QRN on 80 from distant lightning crashes. Rig: ICOM IC-7000 at 5w. into G5RV up 25 ft. 73 to all
K5MBA - Low noise and lots of signals tonite. Snagged fourteen via S&P. I had a great time! .
K7EK - 40m was by far the best but just after one hour into the sprint it seemed to run out of steam. Dropped to 80m and made some more contacts but the storm static was rough at times. All in all I enjoyed this sprint and look forward to the next one.
WM3X - Did much better this month than last. So wishing my dipole was higher really does work!
K9QEW - Band condx good. First sprint since returning from Arizona. TX= HB Funmitter RX= TS530. .
W5ODS - Another great Sprint. Lots of activity on 40 and 80 tonight. 73 W5ODS
WB9HFK - Thanks for all the QSO's! I thought conditions on both 40 and 80 were really decent all things considered. See everyone next time! 72, Mark WB9HFK
W6SMF - My first Sprint Contest...also told by my first contact W6JIM, it was his first also! .
K8NGW - Worked all 3 bands (lots of noise on 20). .
KB1M - Fun sprint but QRN made for difficult copy on weaker stations probably the most repeat request I ever made. Thanks for the QSO's. 72/73 Walt
W2JEK - Got on late. Bands seemed pretty good but a bit noisy. Had fun. 72 and 73 DON W2JEK
AH6AX - Wow! Band was better than I expected; after a week+ of poor propagation, it was a pleasant surprise to be able to make the QSOs! Thanks to all I worked; to those I missed - hope to catch u next month. 73/72! - Larry
N0TA - Thanks for the Q's. Started with six contacts on 20m - it was open and long in the beginning. Rest of the Q's on 40. K3, Vertical, AC2C Spring Logger, Begali Spark.
AC2C - Finally some time for a sprint !!! .
WB4OMM - Wow! Worst noise I have ever experienced here. Huge thunderstorms passed through an hour or so before, and was still seeing lightning in the distance when I went out to the shack. Not a good sign. 40M was S6, 80M was S7. Was able to work three on 40M - Marty N9SE who gave me a 339 (he was 559) and John K4BAI was his usual 599+ (he gave me a 589). Mark WB9HFK came up for a few minutes above the noise at 559 (he gave me the same), but few other signals could be heard through the horrific noise. Nothing heard on 80M. I quit after an hour, I was getting a headache! Oh well...maybe better next month!! Elecraft KX-3, 5W to a G5RV at 35 feet, N3ZN ZN-9Z paddle, GenLog. 72/73 to all! Steve WB4OMM
N5GW - KX3 & rake tine straight key to a pair of doublets. It was good to hear sigs on 20M again, allowing 8 contacts; then the band either faded out or everyone moved to 40M. The latter band was in such good shape that I did not even try a noisy 80M band. Participation seemed very good, including many strong signals. I hope 20M will be even better next month.
KA9KOJ - Lots of noise on this end but had fun contacting ki3io,k4inc.80 meters was wide open but did not hear a single cq Na.guess in getting rusty but alot called just cq or ran it like a straight contest.alot of newbies don't know how to do die hard contesting in cw. .
KQ1P - Rather good conditions. Slipped and sprained my keying wrist on Monday and I was too sore to last long. Thanks & 73.
N4MJ - 40m was quiet tonight. 80m was awful. QRN. 20m was null & void. Fun evening on 40m. Tnx to all participants. 73 de n4mj//glenn
AK3X - 40 and 80 meters only, with a couple of long breaks for other chores! Started with Mark, WB9HFK on 40, and ended with him on 80. Fairly good signals on both bands.72 to all, Peter
AA9L - Wow, what fun. 40 meters was the band for me. 73 AA9L
K9DRP - Started on 20 with no replies. Lots of action on 40, finished on 80. Conditions not so good but lots of participants made for fun. .
K4KRW - First sprint on my new inverted V at 65 feet. Seemed to work quite well. I got a late start. 40 meters was nice. At times I had a bit of a pileup and had trouble picking a call sign out of all of the signals. 80 meters was very noisy and I really had to work for some of the contacts there. Thanks KA2KGP for hanging with me. Fun sprint as always. Thanks everyone. 73 Richard
W4KRN - 40m sigs better, but only heard 2. 80m with QSB. Didn't hear the usual cast of characters/stn's. :-) Hope to hear more next month. 72
VE3DQN - Birthday party evening. Got on for a few minutes after the guests left. .
VE2VAB - First sprint for me, very hard to come in QRP through the noise from the periphery. Was fun though, thank you.
K2IZ - Been licensed 48 years, first time operating in a QRP contest, really a lot of fun instead of trying to get through the high power stations to make a contact. John K2IZ
K0EW - 40M ruled the day here. One QSL on 80M with 5 minutes to spare!
WI5H - I had a great time experimenting with my newly acquired used Flex XCVR that I was operating remotely via my wireless network from a small iPad and a Bluetooth keyboard. I was pretty slow, but I figure the participation is what counts. 72 until next time DIT DIT .
AA0W - Storm moving in from the West QRN heavy Good copy on the strong stations.
NF8M - Great condx on 40 tonite. 80 starting to get noisy as spring/summer approach. Thought some might have taken "sprint" literally - a couple times I waited for a run station to finish only to have them disappear es once the S&P station took the freq. Had a nice run myself on 40 - TNX QSOs es sri to the "5" I just couldn't copy. Try agn next month. 72 es CU Dayton Eve. (I'll be at CTU es at K2BSA Fri morn.)
AA5LH - Seems that 40M is the band of choice for most. 20M seems to have died by the start of Sprint (in this loc). 80M just doesn't come up to expectations. This Sprint didn't start for me until 0001Z, then the exchanges were minimum for remainder. All take care & hear ya next month. 73's
NN0SS - Surprised to hear N4OW-Al in FL on 20meters 599 at start of the sprint
AD0YM - Caught one QSO on 20m before it went silent. Forty meters was full of opportunity. Logged folks to the east of MO, though I tried CO and also heard folks in AZ and CA late in the sprint. Mini pileups all evening.
VA3NU - Conditions were not too bad on 40M tonite. Checked 80M but heard nothing. Larry 73 72
KC7DM - Forty meters was excellent tonight into OR. Lots of strong signals from near (kinda sorta) and far. Twenty was dead and 80 is about done for the season out here. TNX all.
VE3GNU - Lots of noise, and signals of variable strength here, but mostly on 40. Had to 'dig deep' to make out several calls, so called it 'quits' after an hour or so. Jupiter at 5 w. and Begali paddle. Thanks to all for 'hanging in', and always looking for and expecting better times ahead.
W3TTT - Thanks for the sprint! .
K3EMS - Little rusty, been off the air for awhile. Trying new radio and antenna tonight. .
WG8Y - Hi all,Started 1/2 hour late & stopped at 10PM or 0200Z.Managed to get 20 Q's in before I had to go help my ill wife. Anyway. no 20m here in NC,but 40M had some gud signals.Switched to 80M & caught Randy,KB4QQJ running the Great Outdoors Radio Club call K4INC. Also worked K9EZ,Kent,on two bands. He was hard to miss. We live in the same town Hi Hi. 72 from N.C. Mark WG8Y
N8BB - Ok, had a good start then got into a ragchew. Still had fun and enjoyed it anyway. Thanks to all the great ops that are fighting the qsb and still getting thru. 72 and happy hamming. Werner N8BB
W8EWH - Have not participated in a while - good to be back. Ran S&P most of the time, then ran for last half hour or so. Spent all my time on 40 and band conditions were quite good I thought. Used new antenna for first time, and it worked well. W0KFG I hope we finished the exchange. I think so, but much QSB and QRM. Fun!
KA0OBI - Unfortunately I got called away after only making one contact. Conditions seemed to be pretty good on 80 and 40. .
K1IEE - After the first hour 40M was open to the South West and West for a short period of time. Good sprint. Thanks to all 73 Dick
K6MGO - 80M was dead, 20M was dead and 40M was way long, didn't work any stations in my own state. Would be nice to see conditions get back to "normal". Tnx to all who answered my CQ, See you next month. 72, Bill, K6MGO .
W2SH - With increased early evening daylight boosted by the change to daylight saving time and the seasonal progression, 20m was open at the start as it was last month. N0TA and N5GW were again present with good signals, but apart from them I only heard and worked by surface wave N2ESE, less than 20 miles distant. More 20m activity is needed! Arriving, albeit late, spring brought with it a healthy dose of QRN. Nothing was heard through the noise on 80m from more than 200 miles away. 40m was somewhat unstable with a "QSL" to close out a QSO occasionally wiped out by a wisp of QSB. I heard a lot of "AGNs". With a long skip I worked OR; called but didn't work AZ and CA.
WA2JSG - Just 7 for me this evening. Six on 40m and one on 80m. Maybe better next month. .
K4INC - It was fun to operate K4INC tonight. I didn't get to finish the sprint but managed about a hour and a half. I didn't even try 20m and 40m was very active so I stayed there until last 30 minutes I had to operate. It wasn't quite as good on 80 as 40 but it was still a lot of NA activity. I think this is the first sprint for K4INC. Great time and I'll be running K4INC again soon. MTR-4b into a doublet and an LNR QUAD at 33 feet. Gotta love those little Mountain Topper rigs!!
N8XMS - Conditions were rough with a lot of QRN and QSB but the participation was good and I had a pretty good QSO count. I fought the noise for about an hour before shutting down. My ears are still ringing! It was a fun night.
AA2VG - One contact on 20... it was open for one contact only! I ran my Weber KD1JV Tri-Bander. It is one impressive radio for a kit. 72 Peter AA2VG
AC6ZM - Great Sprint on 40 meters this month. Ha limited success on 80 meters. This is my best score yet.
NA4O - Band was good here tonight. I wish I could have worked all that I heard, but I had fun. Another nice sprint in the log! Thanks to all those who make this two hours something to look forward to.
KQ7L - I'm a new member of the club and this was my first Sprint. In fact, I made my first CW QSOs since 1995 during this event!! Thank you all for your patience! It was also my first time to use my new QRP rig from YouKits. (EK-1C) Lots of firsts tonight. Only 6 QSOs for me but as rusty as I am, that took most of the sprint to achieve! :) Very fun and great to be back on CW. 73, Joel
N4OW - 20 was very good for me the first 45 minutes then nothing :) Vertical is doing a good job for me. QRP works 72, AL n4ow
N4NN - First sprint or contest of any kind. Jumped on between thunderstorms with my QCX, EFHW and cootie.
W6JIM - This is the very first contest I have ever entered! I am happy that NAQCC was my first. I only made two contacts, but at least now I have a baseline! It was very friendly compared to other contests that I have heard on the air. I plan to participate in this contest every month from here on out! .
KA5TJS - Wow, I am proud of you guys. You are spreading out! Signals from 7.040 to 7.045khz last night. Great signals last night on 40 meters. I even gave out and got a few 599's. Used the ICOM 7410 @ 5 watts and my 80 mtr inverted vee. TNX for the QSO's and CU all next month.
WB8LZG - Hello fellow sprinters! Just got back from out west vacation in time fer the sprint! Only had short time to play , but made a QSO on all bands and 40 sounded in good shape here in Mich. See u all in the May sprint! 73 Gregg
KD0V - I was not feeling very well this evening. So decided to only operate for a half an hour. 20 meters was dead here and 40 meter sounded very good. 72's Merlin
KN1H - Heard lots of Summertime atmospheric noises but propagation was still pretty good. As always a treat to work both old and new friends. IC7300 and Nye Viking Master Key. 73, John, KN1H
W1PQO - Snowy night in Maine. Lots of QRM tonight making it difficult to copy. Time for only45 min, but had fun as always. Rig was KX-2
W6UG - Bad QRN here at the start but signals got over the noise toward the end...so lots of fun. .
WT4U - 40 was hopping! Lots of strong signals and not enough band. When the party moved down to 80m the lightning strikes were loud enough that even a 599 station had to say everything twice. Wish I knew who I 'worked' on 80m at 0225.
K9EZ - Fun time, but boy was I rusty on a straight key! UGGHH! Using an old J38. Bands were decent though a few thought they had a QSO and didnt. Couple of times I had two stations come back. 40 was out to California from North Carolina, and Oklahoma on 80. Was playing around with a pair of MFJ 80-10 G5RVs, almost perpendicular to each other, one sloping NE, the other E. Definitely some directivity going on. More testing to come. I may power split them.... LOL Lots of nice people and fun to run a Sprint! Nice to be home to be able to operate!
W0KFG - Had to choose between local ham club social hour or work the sprint. Guess which happened... Then got confused and lost one Q due to not having newer member numbers updated--lesson learned! Tnx all & 72 de W0KFG, Richard .
WB8ENE - I had hoped 20 meters would be open due to the days getting longer, but the band was dead here in NE Ohio. Once again, I made all of my contacts on 40. Thanks for the contacts. 73, Art .
K3ESE - Very fun sprint; activity the entire time. I only got one on 20, then half each on 40 and 80. Rig was K2 #4442 at 5W, and this was the first good test of my new 80M dipole, which may have outperformed my EDZ on 80M! Key was the TBFB cootie, by W1SFR. note: Please don't send any info twice, during a sprint... the other op will ask for any fills needed. Thanks!
KI4IO - Gave up after 90 minutes - a cold 807 was beckoning and the QRN was getting old. Used a home-brew direct-conversion Transceiver. Tried 20 meters early on, but nobody heard my 2 Watts on that band. Didn't even try 80!
K4BAI - 20M open, but little activity. 40M very good activity, skip reasonably short, but QSOs out as far as OR and NB. 80M not much time left, but band sounded good. QSOs per band: 20: 2. 40: 47. 80: 4. Thanks for all QSOs. Look for me and KU8E as W4AN/M in many GA counties in the GA QSO Party this weekend. 73/72, K4BAI.
K9EYT - 40 was good tonite here in Tampa bay, rig IC706 ,Kent keyer, ant 60Ft almost invisible wire up 24ft to a palm tree (HOA) .
K2ZD - I always have fun in these Sprints. My OCF Dipole has a break in the feed line which limited my 80M QSO's. 73 de K2ZD Mario
