The NAQCC President's Challenge - February 2007
Call - All 4 presidents completed: K3WWP W9ILF KD2MX Call - Completed: VE3HUR - ABRAHAM LINCOLN, REAGAN, WASHINGTON KC2EGL - GEORGESoapbox: K3WWP - This challenge was completed from regular QSO's plus our NAQCC sprint QSO's. I am also going to try to complete one just from regular QSO's and another one just from ARRL DX QSO's. I like to make things a little more challenging for myself than just our basic challenge.
Well, I came up 3 R's short of making the challenge from the ARRL DX Contest. Had I been keeping track during the contest instead of waiting till it was over, I would have tried and gotten those two more 'R' QSO's.
W9ILF - This was a difficult challenge for me to keep organized. The international DX contest helped me get some of the more difficult letters. It was fun and as always, it kept me looking for a new qso and using QRP.
KD2MX - I used an unique call for each letter
Since February is the birthday month of several of our USA Presidents, including three of our most famous, Washington, Lincoln, and Reagan, we want you to spell out their names listed below with the letters of the calls of stations you work this month.
WILLIAM HENRY HARRISON
You can use a letter in a call TWICE. For example, K3WWP's W could be used in WASHINGTON and WILLIAM. If a call has two or more of the same letters, only one may be used. For example, K3RRR could only be used for two R's, not 6.
All QSO's must be 2XCW and you must use QRP power. The station you work can be using any power.
A certificate goes to each one who makes ALL the names and sends us 52 cents postage.

Anyone submitting a report gets a Participation Point and a web listing, even if you make only 1 name.
