OLD GLORY

PREMISE:
It is the patriotic month of July and you will see the Stars and Stripes flying all over the landscape. Over the years, it has evolved into the flag we know today. When it flew over the Continental Army, in January of 1776, as they lay siege to British occupied Boston, it bore 13 alternating red and white stripes and the British Union Jack in the canton, where we now see a field of stars. In May of that year Betsy Ross sewed her famous, although unofficial, flag. In June the Continental Congress passed the first Flag Act that officially established 13 alternating red and white stripes with a canton of 13 white stars on a blue field. By 1794, with the addition of Vermont and Kentucky, there were 15 states and the next Flag Act, in January of that year, provided for 15 stripes and 15 stars. In 1818 a Flag Act returned the number of stripes to 13 and one star for each state. An additional star was to be added on the July 4th following the admission of a new state. Successive acts established proportions for the flag and dealt with the arrangement and number of stars in the canton.


TIME FRAME:
The first day of the month 0000Z through the last day of the month 2400Z


RULES:
Just make ALL these words from calls of stations you work subject to the General Challenge Rules. (Any spaces in the phrases should be ignored. For example the challenge phrase "INVERTED V ANTENNA" should be treated as if it is the single word "INVERTEDVANTENNA.")

BRITISH UNION JACK
BETSY ROSS
FLAG ACT
CONTINENTAL CONGRESS
CANTON
WHITE STARS
RED AND WHITE STRIPES

The 85 total letters contain these 21 different letters : A B C D E F G H I J K L N O P R S T U W Y

You can use each letter in a call TWICE. For example you could use K3WWP for 2 K's, 4 W's, and 2 P's.

Subsequent QSO's with the same station cannot be used for additional letters. For example, no matter how many times you work K3WWP, you can only use his call for 8 of the letters in the words.

See General Rule #5 for more details on what callsign letters can be used.

If you need some help with your alphabet challenge record keeping take a look at our Alphabet Tutorial page for everything from some great pencil & paper methods to fully computerized tools.


AWARDS:
A certificate and Participation Point go to everyone making all the words and submitting their report before the deadline.

A Participation Point goes to everyone making at least 1, but not all the words and submitting their report before the deadline.


PRIZES:
A choice of an item made by master woodworker Gregg WB8LZG as shown on our prizes page here goes to someone selected via a random drawing from all who participate and submit a report for this month's challenge. A person can only win once, then they become ineligible for future drawings.


LOGS:
For your report, list the words you made and the station used for each letter in the word. The number of stations listed must be the same as the number of letters in each word, even though you use the same station for more than one letter as in:

WORD - K3WWP N2OD WA8REI N2OD
NEXT - NF8M W8REI N8XMS K9EYT

(Note how N2OD is listed for both the O and D.)

You may also include comments about the challenge. Please preface any comments you want posted with "SOAPBOX:" so we will know what you want posted and what is private.

Send your results as text in the horizontal format shown above to:

E-mail: pix_email_k7hap (1K) (You must type that address into your email program.)
Subject must read: (your call) NAQCC (month) Challenge

Soapbox:
 
KJ4R: Whew!  Lots of I's and T's this month! Worked TI5/N3KS for my last T and I.  
Also got # 105 for QRP DXCC this month when I worked ES3AX on 30M.  A good month 
of good QSO's and lots of fun.

NR3Z: My second challenge and completed this one this time.  Lots of fun.

KI4IO: Late in the month and I needed the letters "R" and "T" and
there, calling CQ on 30 meters was HA9RT!  That was serendipitous! Also
worked K1YAN and gave him a few letter I's which were in great demand
this July.
 
W2JEK: WAS A GOOD CHALLENGE. LAST TWO LETTERS NEEDED WERE E AND T. A DOT AND A DASH.

N8ZYA: Too much to do; so little time. Still lots of fun and always a learning experience. 

N9SE: I thought I was going to make it, but fell short again. 

WV8DH: Another fun but tough challenge. Looking forward to next months. 72, Dave

K3WWP: Perhaps it is appropriate with the topic of this month's challenge
that I got so many letters from the Fourth of July Week 13 Colonies special
event stations. All the Ss made it a bit tough but I finished 'em all up
before the end of the month.

N4IVE: Missed it by one word :( It was a tough month for making contacts. I didn't 
see a lot of activity in the evenings and the daytime band conditions were not the 
best. I'll try harder in August :)

N8XMS: With limited available operating time during the month this was a close one 
for me.  It came down to still needing a final "S" on the last day of the month.  
With most of the day booked up with other activities I had about a 45-minute window 
in the morning (about 1200 Z) to try and get that "S".  I tuned around and found a 
fairly weak V31PS calling CQ on 30-meters.  I tried to answer his call about 4 times 
but he never heard me and then he disappeared.  I tuned around some more and was 
surprised to find him again, a little bit stronger, on 20-meters.  On my 2nd or third 
try he came back with "XMS ?".  I sent my call a couple of times again and he came 
back with "W8XMS 599."  I sent my correct call and a signal report and he got it!  
The QSO was good and I had my final "S" to complete the challenge.  That was both 
fun and exciting!

AK3X: My first ever alphabetic challenge entry.  I usually don't get enough contacts 
to come even close.  This was fun and I hope do do it more often.  72, Peter

WA2FBN: Just couldn't find the Ts for this challenge.  Fun challenge
as always.  Hoping for better luck this next challenge.  EFHW sloper
for 40m and 20m ; 3 to 5 watts.  72 Ken
