K9OSC - Heavy thunderstorms were rolling through the area from late afternoon through the period of the Sprint. Even a few tornadoes to the south and west of us. Extreme QRN on 20 meters and 40 meters was unreadable. Pretty risky to continue tonight. Many thanks to K4BAI for hanging in there with several repeats and to the two other stations I worked. See you again next month.
W3TTT - Only one QSO this time gotta get going to another task tonight. Thanks to those who are working on the contest and adding up the scores, and so on. I tried my small wonder 40 heard lots of signals but no answer to my calls. Went back to my ICOM at 5 watts.
K8SMS - Had to sneak away from family gathering to make one contact! CU in the mW sprint. .
N9SE - 40M was really good. Lots of QRN on 80M. Great to hear all the activity!
WA2JSG - Used my Icom IC-703 running 5 watts from a 12v battery to an multi-band vertical. Big ole Kent Str Key. 7 QSOs on 20m, and 3 on 40m (40 was noisy here this evening). 73, Curt
N8XMS - A family activity gave me just enough time to squeeze in 8 QSOs. Conditions seemed pretty good and I heard a lot of participants so I hope that will hold true for the QRPp sprint next week.
N0TA - Thanks for the Q's. K3, vertical & doublet, Gen Log, & Begali Spark
KE9DR - Another fun sprint. Stayed on 20, some QRN and QRM. Thanks to all -KE9DR Bert .
AD0BL - Thanks. I really had fun!
AB3RU - Fun sprint tonight as usual. I started on 20m and planned to only stay for half an hour. I made a few calls but had better luck hunt and pounce. I stayed longer than I'd planned just because 20 was acting weird for me, with a deep qsb that took sigs from 9 to nothing. Maybe I was just hearing the band close, but it was interesting enough to hang around and listen. I moved to 40 and that was booming, then 80, which was also good until about the last 5 minutes when everything just sort of died out. Real fun night - see you all in the mW sprint - I finally have a QRPp rig :)
WV8DH - I had a rough start Because I forgot to download the latest data file so the first station I worked came up as a not member in GenLog. But it worked out and I still had a lot of fun. Thanks to all who put up with my sloppy CW tonight. I was tired. 72/73, Dave
N4WD - QRN, but lots of station, just hard to copy. Logging program locked up when light blinked, but rig still turning on battery..
KC4GIA - Missed a good bit of the sprint but had fun nevertheless. Thanks to all. .
KE8DI - Started on 20 and ended on 40. QSB was deep... Most reports were 599 or else I couldn't copy hihi. Hope everyone has a fun and safe field day! 73 Dave KE8DI
N4KS - Got in late, because I the utc date wrong. Operated 45 mins. Thanks for the Qs and 73, Ken
NO2D - Joined late. 20 quiet. 40 watery. 80 zippo. Only 3 contacts. Wore out my wrist calling cq na on 80 m during the last 15 minutes, but to no avail. Nevertheless, enjoyable, I guess. The sunspot cycle is going down fast here in Parker. Pete, no2d. .
N8ZYA - 20 meters was open longer than usual but still most contacts were on 40 tonight. There were some very strong signals from the NY area tonight. I was using a new radio so need to find out what method works best for me. The Sprint is always fun and a learning experience. .
KQ3Z - Rough conditions tonight at my QTH. Really worked hard to make the few that I made but one more than last month! Thanks for the contacts and thanks to those who make these Sprints and Newsletter happen. .
KG5HCF - Tnx NAQCC .
K3WWP - Strange condx this evening. I just wasn't being heard well on 40. Many many unanswered CQs. Either that or I wasn't hearing those answering me. I know there were three stations who called that I couldn't pull through the QSB/QRN. It was just storm QRN this evening. My local noise remains low. 20 meters wasn't at all good here - just two QSOs. 80 was a pleasant surprise even with the storm QRN there. I finished with 11 QSOs there in 17 minutes to close out the sprint. Lots of fun nevertheless as usual. Thanks to all whom I worked. Several on both 40 and 80 - W2SH W4DUK N1JI WG8Y.
N1JI - Thanks for the fun sprint everyone. Conditions weren't as good as last month, but I could still hear a lot of you out there. Sorry to the station who was calling me in the first hour that I couldn't copy... I tried! 73 & 72
AB1VL - Slow start, most activity was on 40M. Mixed S&P with some running on 40M and 20M. 40M got much better toward the end of the contest; picked up Qs from CO to FL. Heard many faint ones I that could not hear me. Good fun. Tnx as always to contest organizers!
N0MII - First NAQCC Sprint! Wish I'd have swapped antennas - would have been better off on 40 tonight.
NF8M - Got home and on late but 40 was in good shape. Welcome to the new members I worked - glad to have you in NAQCC. CU all next time es 72.
WB4OMM - Made the last 20 mins of the Sprint! And got two on 20...... Sorry folks...was prepping for the Sprint around 7:30pm local (around 2334 to be exact) and started hearing 6M phone signals BOOMING in on the radio. Short version - WOW! I quit my 6M "run" at 0132....and made 108 Qs - 65 grids (45 of them new!)- 29 States (17 new) - an average run of 66 per hour rate! (I had a 120 per hour and 90 per hour for two 10 min periods). I have NEVER heard 6M open like that before! So that's my pitiful excuse for missing most of you!!! 20 lashes with a wet noodle on me! (Yes, I made VUCC tonight.....). But I did mange the two Qs..in the last few minutes.....so, see you all next month! 72/73! Steve WB4OMM
KB3AAG - Another enjoyable evening. I ran only 8/10 of a watt but still 30 of you heard my CQs! I expect to be beat on this one as the band had noise and 5 watts would have done better. One more QRPp this month then I intend to whip up the power to 5 watts for field day. Frank
K1IEE - Started on 40M then went to 20m got 2 Q's on 80M and finished on 40M. Signals seemed to be weak on all bands. Some QRN on 40M but that was the band to be on. Good Sprint again. Thanks to all 73 Dick .
WD4OHD - Good propagation on 40m but a bit noisy. Conditions were very good on 20m tonight. First sprint I've been able to work in a while. Lots of fun, especially when band conditions are favorable. Best regards to all participants.
KI8JY - Thanks to all for a nice first NAQCC sprint - 73, Dave
WG8Y - Hi all,stayed on 20m 1st hr.Loaded with signal agn this month.Did Some S&Ping then called a while on 40m. 40 was also loaded with some gud sig. Worked my ole' QRP buddy from OH.Ron,NT8P.Gud to hear you Ron.Went to 80m the last 15 min.Wow,QRN from the storms south of me was S9+ at times.Called a couple times & worked John,K4BAI for the 3rd band.Thanks John. Had a couple more call me but the QRN was too much. Moved up band & found John,K3WWP calling for the 2nd band with him. Cool. It was great hearing so many signals tonite. Hope everyone had a fun time. I did.See ya all in the MW Sprint next week!72 From N.C. Mark WG8Y
K6BFA - ANOTHER ENJOYABLE EVENING. .
W4DUK - Made a half dozen contacts on 20m before moving to 40m where I made the bulk of my contacts. Spent the last 20 minutes on 80m, where I made a few contacts before the Sprint ended. Some QRN on 80m but otherwise conditions not too bad. Another good time. Looking forward to the mW Sprint next week. 72/73 de Dave
AB8FJ - Very enjoyable sprint. Had to use the RIT control to tune in a few stations calling off frequency. 40 Meters only this evening. K3/10 at 5W to the Inverted L at 15 ft. Looking forward to the Milliwatt Sprint next week.
AL7JK - 72/73 to all ! Had fun this evening, trying out a new 20 mtr vertical mounted on the roof top @ 25ft, with a dozen elevated radials. Signals came and went down in the noise level, I heard but didnt work, K7TQ, KF6GC, N0TA and WK6L. Kept at it, KF7WNS Gary rose out of the noise floor here in southcentral Ak long enough for a Qso. Thanks for the contact Gary ! de AL7JK, John .
KB1WXC - Thanks for the fun - ! .
KJ4RV - 2nd time submitting log. This time with straight key. I had more fun. Thanks to Steve, KI4EZL for only instate QSO and multiplier.
KD9VT - I had a great time. I really enjoy sprints and contests. Thanks to all of you that put up with my sloppy code. I was trying a new key and am not very good with it. You are a great bunch and I am proud to be a part it. 72/73 Dave KD9VT
WZ2N - These things are an absolute blast. Thanks to all that make them happen! Worked "Back yard portable" tonight. The mosquitoes were brutal and next time I am going to throw a chair into the mix instead of sitting on the ground. Also, bugs don't work well when held or set on the ground as I learned before I made a single QSO so I opted to pound brass instead for the entire sprint. I started on 20m tonight but only managed a few before local QRM took over. 40m was hopping...After a S&P for a while, I inherited a frequency and worked the best string I ever have had the pleasure of being on the calling end of. I managed to nearly triple my previous best score! Thanks to all the stations I worked and great operating by everyone! Greg WZ2N
KF7WNS - Fun night...but only had an hour to play. Sorry to the stations I lost. 20m was there one minute and gone the next. I usually switch to my N/S wire to see if I can pick up John/AL7JK...yep good copy, and a bonus of Dick/AH6NM booming in from Hawaii. Thanks to all. 72, Gary .
AE7CG - Thanks to K2YGM, WB0PYF, KE8DI, K4BAI, AA2VG, and NN9K for 20M QSOs this month. Sorry I couldn't make the 2-way exchange with KF7WNS due to the QRM. Maybe we can try again next month, Gary! 72 to all from northern Arizona, Loren, AE7CG. .
N7QR - FT840, 1958 Vibroplex Presentation. 40 and 80 were dead. Only on for the first hour (had soccer tickets.) Appreciated contact with KF7DS, he took time to pass his handle. Thanks Don! My notes say I copied K7EW in WA, but I know he's in OR. Was he portable or mis-copied? Heard WB0PYF, N6IET and a couple of others, but couldn't connect. See you next month. .
WS1K - A great time as always. Conditions were fairly decent with some QRN. Most contacts were on 40. Had 2 on 80 and 1 on 20.
WB8LZG - HELLO SPRINTERS ! I only had 1/2 hr to play in sprint, my son visiting from N.D. es spending time wid family. 20m was barely open. Made a few q's there ,but tough going. 40 was playing well in Mich but seemed "short". Abig welcome to new mwmbers wid #'s over 8000. I worked 3 new ons tonight ! hope to hear many of u in the mw sprint next week. 73 Gregg .
KI4EZL - I had a load of fun using my Special Edition, Solid Brass, Kent Straight Key. Once again, the NAQCC event was a blast! 72, Steve KI4EZL. .
K4WLW - 20m was good for the first hour, but everyone was on top of each other and made it hard to copy. Spread out a little! 40m opened up for the last hour. 80m was impossible due to storms in the area. Had a great time, and thanks to everyone who puts on these sprints. KX3 to 125' end fed sloper. See you in the mW Sprint, and thanks to everyone that worked me and put up with my little peanut signal. 72 - Bill
N4MJ - Missed first half hour. Ouch! that hurts. 40m was noisy (QRN). 20m was fair. Didn't seem to be as much activity as usual, vacation time for some...73 de n4mj
K4RHG/1 - Another fun sprint. 40 Meters was working well. Thanks WX4RM for all your efforts trying to copy my call through the QRM. Maybe next month we'll have more luck.
VE3DQN - A discouraging evening at the Sprint. Couldn't hear folks, they couldn't hear me. Well, there's always next month....
K4BAI - FT1000MP, 5W, TH6DXX, dipole, zepp, inverted vee. 20M was wonderful for more than an hour, with strong signals from everywhere and no skip zone. Some of the loudest signals were from adjoining states, AL, TN, NC and FL. Also worked G3RSD, a member in England and stations from the W7 area. Heard one station in CA, but didn't get his call. No Canadians for some reason. 40 and 80 were very disappointing. Got all but one mult (CT) on 20. Activity low on 40 and almost none on 80. Thanks to WG8Y in NC for all three bands. QSOs by band: 20: 41. 40: 20. 80: 1. Lots of good fists out there. Thanks for all QSOs and look forward to next month. 73/72, John, K4BAI.
WB8ENE - Only heard a couple of very weak signals on 20 meters, so I had to make all of my contacts on 40 (don't have an antenna for 80 at this time). Thanks for the contacts. Elecraft K3 and Begali Blade. See you next time. 73, Art
K8RJW - Considering the band conditions lately I thought the score would be much worse. 40 meters was the band for me. Thanks to all those who participated. 72, Bob
K9JWV - In preparation for the milliwatt sprint next week, was on for a few minutes to ensure my QRPp rig is working fivers.
WA1GWH - Lots of QRN heard from up here near Syracuse, NY, but most sigs fairly strong. 72, Garry
AA4MZ - Band wasn't too good but had a good time. Thanks to all! .
KD3CA - As usual great fun , many thanks to those that called, sorry to those I missed. Bands a bit QSB at times . Many thanks for a couple that called & the nice chat. 73 to all Don .
N5GW - I was giving the K1 a workout using the J38 straight key. 20M sounded pretty good, staying open the whole time, but 40M was full of QRN from local rainstorms. Since my K1 board doesn't cover 80M, I did't have to worry about QRN there. It was good to hear lots of activity and run into some new call signs. I hope to hear many of you next week in the milliwatt sprint. .
K2YGM - Conditions here tonight were reasonable due to no line noise for a change. Heard many stns on 20 mtrs until the band died for me. Switched to 40 and had many stations calling CQ. Not much doing on 80 except the few regulars which always fill in the closer states for me such as W2JEK,W2SH,KB3AAG,N1JI, and of course K3WWP John. > Hope to see you all again next month. 72 de K2YGM Bob .
K2ZD - 20M was good, 40m poor, surprised to pick up QSO's on 80M. Looking forward to the next NAQCC Sprint. 73 Mario K2ZD .
WB5UAA - My IC-7300 into a 20M quarter wave ground plane at 20 feet seems to be a killer combo. Lots of new numbers this time around. A couple of you gave me your SKCC number? Was fun pounding on my Begali and Kent! Look forward to next month, 72!
WB3T - Used my new HW-8, just restored. I heard a lot of stations on the bands but not too many NA's, just a lot of ragchews so Q's were hard to come by, but it was fun hunting. Thanks for the contacts guys! .
W2SH - 20m was in good shape at the start and it was nice to have my CQ answered by G3RSP. 40m seemed lightly populated; the skip lengthened considerably in final hour. Few sigs were on 80m but all were strong.
W2JEK - Got on late. No activty heard on 20. Had one qso on 40. Then went to 80 and made ten qso's. Conditions not very good. Had fun on 80. 72 and 73 don W2JEK #1135
WB1GYZ - I never worked so hard for so few Q's. Let's blame sunspots, but a good time none the less. Three cheers for our volunteers!
WX4RM - I have heard intentional QRM on DXpeditions, but this is the first time I had somebody intentionally holding down their key while I was listening to my CQ responses, lasting half an hour till they got board. I am not DX, so why? Oh, well, changed bands and it stopped. Very good conditions on 20 tonite, even tho a thunderstorm rolled thru and knocked out the power once. I do not give up easy, was not going to let these good conditions go wasted. Storm passed over, I had a very good time all in all. Note: if there is lightning in your area, pull the plug and antenna! I am old, common sense has gone away hihi.
KB1M - 20 turned out better than I expected it was going to be, despite deep QSB. Was called by a G3, sadly not my frequency to reply on. Great evening, 73 Walt
K6MGO - Bands were strange this time, they started out bad and got worse, till the last half hour and then 40 opened a little, just enough to make 4 more contacts before the end of the sprint. Hope next month will be better. Tnx to all who answered me, and Tnx to all who work so hard to make this sprint happen. CU next month, 72, Bill k6mgo
K7EW - conditions here on 20 interesting but quite weak: nearly everything = faint! Still, I clearly heard MO, MI, NY, IL, FL, -and OR (nearby) 599 do the middle-westerners and eastern ops pay much attention to us "QRP weakies" 'way out here? 40 and 80 were nil! -that was my half-hour's worth! 72 .
KA2KGP - Good propagation & band conditions this sprint. 20m. was open for the first hr. Minor QRN on 40m. & 80m. Rig: IC-7000 at 5w. into dipole up 25 ft. and a straight key.
NN0SS - Thunderstorms passed thru the area prior to the sprint. Lots of QRN on the bands after.
WB0PYF - Good sprint condxs on 20m, not able to work entire sprint, KX3 ROCKS, thanks for all the contacts, 72 Ray
K3RLL - SOAPBOX: FT-817 to G5RVjr - Back in PA for the summer where it is SO much cooler and where there is an actual, genuine outdoor antenna. Wow, what a difference compared to the antenna restrictions of FL living. Thanks for all the skilled ops who pulled me out of the din this evening. 72/73 ... Don
N3MLB - I didn't get a chance to operate the full length of the sprint, but sure did have fun doing it. It was nice to hear the chirps and beeps on the ether.
AA4MI - AA4MI- after waiting for more than 3 weeks since the last SPRINT, a thunderstorm arrives over my QTH. Lightning included. After the storm lessened the QRN became dominant. Stil I'm looking forward to our next event.
K4KRW - Great hearing everyone. Sorry I couldn't spend much time with the sprint. 73 Richard
WA2FBN - Another fun sprint. LNR LD5 at 5w into end fed sloper antenna. Used a CW touch paddle; still getting used to it. Thanks to all who worked me. Bands were noisy at my location. 72 Ken
N0WKZ - Thank you!
AA0W - Hvy QRN Local Storms
AA9WP - It has been quite some time since sending in a log. Noisy night with thunderstorms in the area. But 40 m did a good, although signals sometimes came and went. See everyone soon
AC4PA - My first NAQCC Sprint. It was fun! I like sprints!
W2BJN - Ten-Tec O7 @ 5W to 65 ft end fed wire up 18 ft. Started on 20m and found good band conditions. Picked up first 30 contacts in little over an hour. Really enjoyed this Sprint! Thanks to all for your patience, repeats and fills. See ya'll next week. 72, Joel
VE3GNU - lots of noise here in Eastern Ontario---slow starting, and getting better as the evening progressed. Argonaut V and a Bencher paddle. Thanks to all for participating---and for the patience required.
