SOAPBOX:

WX8J - Had a great time despite noisy band conditions. Good to hear so many ops on the air! Stay safe my friends!! '73 de WX8J

WB1HGA - all the QSO's were exchanged in friendly manner. The QSB gave me some trouble with copying member's club number.

KB1M - Ran the sprint at 900mW in attempt to keep the shack cool in the August weather, had a very fun evening, but had to QRT earlier than I wanted. Many thanks. 72, Walt

WX4RM - Fun sprint as always, QSB was there tonight. I kept checking on 20 meters, but no luck in hearing any sigs.

K5TSK - After about an hour listening to crashes, waiting my turn, only to witness QSB away the station calling CQ, I decided I wasn't having fun. Maybe next time. When I barely heard W1AW on 20m, knew it was 40m or nuttin. 72. Hank

KI7LW - Tried to complete QSO with K6PBQ in CA but lost him to QSB. Sorry Don!

K4KRW - I could only operate a few minutes. Thanks everyone!

W2JEK - 20m in poor shape. Went to 40 until last half hour. Had good results. Lots of fun. 72 and 73 DON W2JEK

W4EDN - Ben off for a few months, glad to be back.

WB9HFK - Thanks for all the QSO's! Sorry to those I may have missed down in the noise. I stayed on 40M for the entire Sprint - it's nice to work so many familiar calls. The old J-38 got a real workout! See everyone next month! 72, Mark WB9HFK

N8HZM - Fun time. 40 meters was open with little noise. Spent most of my time there. 80m noisey as usual. Probably should have parked myself and sent CQs rather than S&P.

KJ4R - Realized at just before 0200 that I had forgotten about the sprint. Fired up the KX3 and squeezed in 12 QSOs before time ran out. Pity I missed the first hour and half. 40 seemed really good here in SC with S3 noise and good signals. Oh well at least I remembered before it was too late! Welcome to new member W7LG. Also nice to work WX8J and W0KFG for the first time. Always enjoy the sprints and thanks to those I worked and to the club members who make this happen. KX3 / Vibroplex bug to vertical. 73 / 72.

K6GPB - First sprint after being a member for many years. FUN! .

KG5OWB - MTR3B running abt 5w into mag loop sitting on a sawhorse in the back yard. VERY high noise here last night even with very limited bandwidth of the mag loop. Heard some "in the mist" but couldn't pull them out. First time participating in a long time. Had fun! 73 - Terry - KG5OWB

W0KFG - Quite a few signals heard but QSB rapid & rugged. Struggled to get K4BAI in last 2 minutes but don't think he got me. KX3, '57 Lightning & attic wire. 72 all!

N7IMI - First contest of any kind. Good place to get feet wet. Learned a lot. Looking forward to the next sprint. Will do better.

NO2D - Nothing heard on 20 or 80 meters. 40 meters sounded like mush, but I managed a few contacts. N4ARY in GA quite strong here in Colorado. The rest not so much! Thanks for another interesting and challenging sprint. Pete, NO2D .

N4ARY - Fun night! The sunspots are returning!

N0TA - Started slow on 20m, ended fast on 40m. Thanks for the Q's!

AK3X - In and out during the first hour. Stuck to 40 meters using my QCX 40 at 4 watts. Wish I had more time for the sprints. 72 to all. Peter .

N4SO - Thanks to three Georgians that made the log.

N7QR - 47th Sprint. KX3 on a gel cell, 1958 Vibroplex Presentation, W2AU balun 40 meter dipole @ 25' in the trees at my son's house across the street. Only the first half hour. Heard a couple on all 3 bands but all down in the noise. CU next time. Russ - (Congrats Portland Timbers!) .

KC9TQR - The conditions this month were much more difficult for me here in northern Wisconsin. There was a lot of noise and deep QSB. I really appreciate those who worked me, or tried to work me, tonight. - To AB0TO, every time you sent my RST your signal simply vanished. Sorry I wasn't able to hear you at the right times. - Also, a big "Thank You!" to K4BAI for sticking with me through all the deep fades. I totally lost you for a bit, but was able to catch your calls to finish the QSO. - Still, really enjoyed the night and surely improved my skills. - Thanks to all!

K9EYT - 20 dead 40 rolling QSB,QRN sri if I didn't come back to you tonight on 40 that did put the K3S to the test, QSY'ed to 80 and it worked well here in the Chicago area and my neighbor's plasma TV was off for a change, HI Tnx's for the good time stay safe CU next month RAY

VE7HI - Tried only 20 and not for long. Thanks for the sprint. CUL!

KC5F - More relaxed this month. I used the turtle SK I made for the SKCC WES - it's surprising how well it works! (Search "Turtle Straight Key" in YouTube for a demo.)

N4MJ - Great Sprint. Tnx to all participants. 73 and stay SAFE. n4mj//glenn

KU4A - Just a little bit of operating during breaks in my 6-hour hockey game. 40m seemed to be in great shape.

WT4U - Slow start and lost a few to QSB, but a good evening. Checked 20m a few times and heard nothing.

KG4MTN - A fun night, 40M was quiet and seemed to be open to the NE and FL. Briefly heard TX and CO stations but lost them in QSB. Operating my venerable K2 to rain gutter, am surprised how well it gets out on QRP. Got to work the prez, WB4OMM, who had strong sig into middle TN. XYL made chocolate chip cookies, all is well in this QTH!! See all next month sprint!! .

NR3Z - Most signals were strong. Good to hear everyone

WI8J - Great fun! Was on 40M all night. Noise was loud but signals were louder! 72

K4BAI - Only worked local K8LBQ on 20M. 40M was good for all but the last QSO with AB9CA on 80M. Dave was the only one worked on two bands. KF7WNS in OR was my best "DX" QSO. Thanks, Gary. 73/72, John, K4BAI

WG8Y - Hi all, 20m sounded dead at the start so went to 40m. Worked 4 Q's then checked 20m agn. Heard & worked WI5H,TX,who came up to an honest 559 then faded shortly after the Qso. worked 3 more on 40m then pulled the plug. Long day today. Maybe get back at it next month. Hope to hear some of you guys Sunday,the 16th in the Skeeter Hunt 1700 UTC to 2100 UTC. 73 from N.C. Mark WG8Y

NA4O - Weak signals, noise and qsb. I had to work for the qsos tonight, but the results are satisfying. Always glad to be part of the NAQCC gathering.

KY5M - 2nd attempt at the sprint. I used NN1M+ this time with user defined template for NAQCC and a straight key for the 1st time. .

N0ZIB - Had a great time. .

W2SH - Tropical storm Isiaih, the worst such event since hurricane Sandy more than seven years ago, took down both antennas. The tall inverted L that I use most often probably won't be repaired until the leaves are off the trees. I spliced the 270-foot dipole back together and got it back up, but it's mainly effective for under 500-mile distances. QSOs weren't easy.

N3OS - FIRST SPRINT FOR ME. DIDN'T HAVE LOTS OF TIME TONIGHT. THUNDERSTORMS OVER GREEN SWAMP TRYING TO BUG ME. WAS RUNNING 2.8W INTO GROUND MOUNTED 43' VERTICAL. HEARING A LOT (40M) BUT NOT BEING HEARD OUTSIDE FL IT APPEARS. LOOKED FOR NOVICES FIRST. MY FIST WASN'T GUD AT ALL. EXCESSIVE FERRIS OXIDE :-) I CALLED K4KBL AND WB6NMR IN GA DURING FIRST HALF HOUR BUT NO QSO WITH EITHER. GUD TO HV TRIED AT LEAST! 'TWAS FUN. GARY - N3OS

WI5H - Well, last month I forgot! Worked all my contacts on 20 and 40 meters. Thanks for the QSOs. Take care and stay safe. 72, TU DIT DIT .

KA3TTT - Thanks for a fun event! I finally got my magnetic loop working on 80 meters, so really enjoyed that. I worked NJ and CT, as well as ON on 40 meters. .

AA0W - On 20 Meters only one station was worked, moved to 40 Meters lots of activity with good conditions. The last 15 minitues was great. KX2 Internal Battery .

N2JJF - only 1 contact each on 20 and 80. Most of activity on 40m but lots of QRN.Hope to hear everyone this weekend on Skeeter Hunt.

KL7CW - WHERE IS THE SPRINT ACTIVITY FROM THE WEST COAST ? PROPAGATION WAS FAIR TO THIS AREA AND SUPPORTED QRP. HEARD NON SPRINT SIGNALS FROM WA, CA, OR, BC, ETC. RICK KL7CW PALMER, ALASKA

K4JPN - Heavy QRN made copy rough. 73, Steve K4JPN

K3JZD - 40m Only. Some nasty on and off QSB encountered. KX3 - Begali Blade - Dipole. Jody - K3JZD

KQ1P - Started on 20m, but only heard WB4OMM very weakly. Moved to 40m and the band was humming. Very little QSB, no QRN, and plenty of QRM in the NAQCC window! Best cdx for me in months. Worked some new members and others who are in my log many times. Thanks everyone. .

WB1GYZ - New wire going up by October after storm damage, I hope. .

K2OID - First time I've used my new QCX+ QRP CW XCVR. Worked great! .

AA9L - Got in the last half hour. Signals were weak with QSB on 40 meters but managed to make a few. .

W0EJ - Antenna was compromised in a big storm, have work to do.

K5WX - I heard nothing on 20 meters. 40 meters was tough!

KE5YUM - Band conditions were not good at my QTH so no contacts made during my allotted time for the sprint. All the best, Terry .

W3TTT - Less than a half hour due to family commitments. I really enjoy this sprint activity. My antenna must have a nice lobe gain to New England. Thanks to everyone who participated and to those who are supporting the activity. I called CQ for the contacts this month. Looking on RBN later, I see that I am picked up about a 1000 miles around, at five watts on 80 meters. That would include zones 1, 2, 3, 4, 8, 9. Looking at last month's results, I count 76 stations within that radius. Maybe we could arrange a net instead of a sprint?

N2CN - This is my last sprint at my home QTH for the last 26 years. I almost didn't make it... the KX2 came back from Elecraft repair only two hours before the sprint. My antenna comes down tomorrow morning. My next QTH is not ham-friendly, so antennas will be makeshift. Listen (hard) for me next month. Thanks to everyone who came back to me this evening. 73, Andy

KA2KGP - Another nice sprint. 20m. was nil but 40 & 80 were good here in WNY. Rig: IC-7000 at 5w. into G5RV up 25 ft. w/ old WWII German Junker Key. 73 to all.

WB8LZG - Hello Fellow Sprinters ! I fired up the FTdx1200 at 5W on battery tonight. 20m was just shutting down here as the sprint started, but I did grab KF7WNS, then just a few peeps. 40 was Up n Down QSB all night as was 80. Mostly good signsls, but some were tough copy though the noise. I alternated 40/80 to catch band changes. Nice to work a few old friends as well as some of our newer members. SRI to a couple of you who I heard calling me and I just couldn't pull out a whole call. Happened right at the end of the sprint on 80. I got the kC then ... gone. Still a fun sprint. It's always good to hear so many FB operators out there. 73, Gregg WB8LZG

VE9VIC - I Heard, AB0TO..KW2A..N2CN..N4MJ..WB9HFK..W2JEK..But I couldn't get them, at 02.00 utc , I had to close my station fast , a big thunder storm very close.thanks to all. 73 de VE9VIC

K3EW - First Sprint in a while. Ok condx on 40 80 much better but very few stations made the move to 80. Thank you for all of QsoS 72 PHIL k3EW

KN1H - Thanks for another fun Sprint! Had a fun time pulling stations out of the thunderstorm soup. I'm sure no one was exempt! 72, John, KN1H

K8AG - Been away for a while. Ran YouKits HB-1B MK5. Just got it today. Thanks all. .

N4OW - Late entry, 40 was busy. Good fun. 72 de N4ow 7700

NQ1B - Conditions very good tonight with lots of solid signals. I am very rusty at CW and need to get more practice in. Really struggled to get AH6AX's call correct.

WU6P - Only have very limited time, but still fun.

KD3CA - Pretty tough conditions here with lots of QRN and QSB at times. Many thanks to all for the calls . 73 Don

AH6AX - First time on in nearly a year - had a great time and was pleasantly surprised that condx were not bad for QRP (at least here in MD). Lots of stns to chase - Thanks to all I managed to 'catch' 73/72! - Larry

AA5LH - My SOP (Standard Ops Plan) remains the same, start on 20M, then 40M, finally to 80M. Sit on an open call freq. and work all like minded hams in 2 hours. Usually with summer months I can log several 20M QSO's but last night was not usual. Only 1 QSO w/in the first 30 minutes. I decided to switch up to 40M. Two factors were quite apparent, not many QRP signals and lots of QRN/QSB. As the time ticked down, signals got more frequent and stronger. Appreciate all your tries. 80M around 0200z, nothing heard. . Look forward to next month. Take care.

VE3DQN - Fairly good propagation tonight, good participation. Then it suddenly seemed to dry up. Tried 20m at the beginning, but already nearly dark here, and I could only hear a few faint signals.

VA3NU - Lots of QRM to contend with tonite. Or maybe my ears are getting old and tired ;-) .

AB9BZ - Nothing on 20M. 40M had high noise at my QTH, but managed to make a few contacts. Thanks for the contacts and the sprint. 73 ab9bz .

K3RLL - IC-706 and 1946 Vibroplex Deluxe to G5RVjr. Wow, that was a fast and fun half-hour! Many nice signals on 40m this evening. Big signal here was KN1H John -- just booming into rural PA. Thanks for the great contacts. 72/73 ... Don

N8LA - KX3, 5W, 200' Dipole @ 35', CW Morse Black (Powerless) Plastic Hand Key.

VE3GNU - Challenging evening---static crashes and QRM amid signals of varying strengths---but fun just the same. Jupiter @ 5 W. and Begali paddle. Thanks to all---73

AD0YM - Tried to operate in the midst of a concurrent Zoom teleconference. Multitasking did not work too well. At least I got a couple in the log.

KF7WNS - Fun night tonight...20 and 40 open to Alaska. 40 was pretty quiet at the end and could hear lots of stations.

N4WD - QRN at 10 over and better at times, hard copy. .

AB9CA - IC-7200 at 5w to wires. Started on 20 but heard no one. Went to 40 and found a few. Noise was usual summer time storms. QSB was bad, as usual. But it is fun, and something of a challenge, to make a few contacts despite the noise and QSB. Thanks for the Q's. This is always a good event. Good participation and good ops! 73 de dave ab9ca

K9QEW - 40 meter operations only. Band condx good some very light QRN and QSB. Held up well using my HB xtal Controlled TX. 73s and Stay Tuned Daryl

K4VLP - First sprint for me. I only operate portable during late morning to early afternoon, before the afternoon/evening thunderstorms here in Florida send me scurrying for cover. That means simple setups and quickly-deployed antennas. Usually I'm in a nearby park, on my golf cart somewhere close to home, or if pressed for time on a lawn chair in the backyard. So tonight I put an AX1 on the desk and fed it with 2.5W from a 3-band Mountain Topper. Results were about what one would expect from an indoor setup such as that, but it was fun tuning around the band and trying to pull signals out of the noise. .

W4NLT - Heard nothing on 20M. Most of the action was on 40M. Thanks for the QSOs. 72 ZUT

K2CWM - IC-703, 5w off a 12v battery to a vertical. Kent Straight Key. Curt K2CWM 3457 NJ .

N2EIM - I worked 40m and heard one station in each of the following states: MI, GA, NC. I am antenna restricted. I will try again next month. .

K4KBL - First 90 was great, last 30 was heavy QRN... Had a great time, many new calls worked and many regulars that I didn't manage to pick up. Next time !!

K0EW - Lots of activity on 40, slim pickin's on 80, heard nothing on 20. Had fun regardless. .

KJ4YM - GOOD SPRINT. QSB BADAT TIMES BUT OVER ALL CONDX WERE OK. USE KX3 @ 5 WATTS INOT AN 80 METER INVERTED DELTA LOOP UP 55 FT. .

N8KQ - Was on 40 all evening using newly built QCX 40+ and a very noisy dipole. Thanks to all that heard me. 73

WY7N - Doing a SOTA activation again this month-Bountiful Peak-W7U/DV-004. I was spotted by a SOTA RBN skimmer in Finland! 19 db SNR, so my 5 watts were booming into Finland! Then my first two contacts were New Zealand stations! Wow! Conditions were weird too. 40M was completely dead. So I stayed on 20M the whole time.

N0MII - Been a while - forgot how much fun NAQCC Sprints are! Next time I'm using a straight key!

WA8SAN - Not much time this Month, but was fun. Best Sig was from K4KBL in GA. /Stay Safe

WB4OMM - Great night, started with some good contacts on 20M for about 20 mins, then the band died. 40M was the money band here tonight! Almost all were 559-579, band reasonably quiet (S4 noise)a few 599s, a few 339s. Went to 80M with 20 mins left, worked 3 on that band - but with S9 noise. Apologies to the W2 that tried to work me there, just couldn't hear you. Very happy with the Sprint tonight! Met some old friends, met some new friends! 72/72 to all. Steve WB4OMM

W9SAU - My first NAQCC Sprint, and new to QRP. A lot of fun, and lots to learn. Thanks for the contacts

NX8Y - Made a few QSO's and then I answered a CQ I thought was in the Sprint. Ended up in a 35 minute QSO. He was trying to work on his CW and I enjoyed the chat. Took me back to my Novice days. All in the fun and spirit of CW. 72, Ron

K1IX - Worked only 40m & had to QRT early. Tnx for Q's
