It was nice to hear our brothers in Texas on the air. The bands went long
early. Twenty was almost closed before I started...

Mk-V, AL-811 400watts, HF6V vertical. 20m just barely alive here. Not much
short skip on 40m and lots of QRM. 80m sigs down and I wish we would spread
out more. Still fun. Tnx QSOs. 73, Chris VA3NR.

NØOJ   Single Op LP   2,2332008-09-13 21:18:35
Good contest, especially toward the end when 40m came alive with much less QRN
than earlier. New NA Sprint and NAQP strategy - use middle name of "Daniel"
instead of first name of "Ryan"...too many fills for people thinking my name
was "Brian". Had a great time and can't wait for contest season to really kick
into gear!
 
KØUK   Single Op HP   9,8042008-09-13 21:18:43
Did we have fun in this one..20mtrs 12 minutes then to 40mtrs. Should have
started there..Went to 40mtrs which started to produce. Heard Bill KH7XS
running on flip flop. Couldnt heard the pile but did off and on..Great Job Bill
from HI..Should have stayed on 40 more..oh well there is next year.

KU8E   Single Op HP   1,4522008-09-13 21:26:12
The mic broke off of my Heil headset when I was getting ready and really didn't
want to do FT with a hand mic. Decided to go watch the OSU-USC game instead.
That turned out to be a disaster (if you are an OSU fan) so I ended up putting
in 1 hour in the Sprint after I couldn't take watching the Buckeyes anymore !!

Thanks and 73!
 
NDØC   Single Op QRP   1,6172008-09-13 21:28:41
Boy this was a struggle from here with QRP. 20 wasn't very productive - only
the loud west coast stations coming in - didn't hear anything to the east - and
of course it died out relatively early. Tough going (as usual) on 40 and 80
with only 5 watts. Thanks again to everybody for your patience in digging me
out of the noise and all the repeats. I think this pretty much confirms the
sentiment that you don't have to be crazy to run QRP ... but it helps.

Station: Yaesu FT-897D at 5 watts, tribander at 50 feet and inv. vee at 45 feet
(heating up the trees)

KCØMO(KØOU)   Single Op HP   7,4802008-09-13 21:32:13
Worst sprint in years. I guess those who weren't blown away by Ike were working
the WAE. I can't believe only 24 Q's on 20. I knew I was in trouble when at the
beginning I was hearing AK and Hawaii on 20 and Europe on 40. Wow. Was trying to
give some exposure to the new club call that is QTH specific for KC, MO. Didn't
get much. Will use the call in domestic phone contests.
CU all in the next one. Steve, K0OU.
 
N5DO   Single Op LP   8,3602008-09-13 21:34:26
First time ever for me to not work another Texas station in a Sprint. It was
clear that a large portion of Texas was suffering from the effects of Hurricane
Ike. Hopefully they will get power restored and be back to normal soon.
 
WN6K   Single Op LP   1,3302008-09-13 21:35:23
Was 'playing at N6UWW's showing her what was up with the Sprinting...and got
into it a bit for some fun. We know that there is no such thing as Multi - but
was a good learning session and enjoyed getting a little contest "fix" for the
weekend.

Well, this was not fun. Program would not work right. Had problem getting
audio set right. Just poked around and worked a few. CW is so much easier to
do!! 73 and thanks for the Q;s

Hope the TX/LA guys are ok from IKE's invasion.
 
WØYK   Single Op HP   5,4362008-09-13 21:47:19
Sorry I couldn't get on sooner. Thanks for the QSOs. Wish more people would
participate in this one, though. Well, gosh, even N6TR found a microphone and
was handing out Qs. Next thing, he'll will show up in the RTTY Sprint!

K9NW(@K9UWA)   Single Op HP   9,6302008-09-13 22:01:29
There's four hours I'll never get back...... :-)

Fortunately there were football games to watch on TV while tuning for QSOs.
And some DX on 160. I would have bagged it about 30 minutes in but I drove
three hours to get here so figured I should stick it out for the duration.

See y'all for CW Sprint in Feb.

VA7ST   Single Op HP   1,3802008-09-13 22:07:55
Just popped in here and there to provide a BC mult. 20M was way long, making NA
difficult. Was not strong with CW-band antennas on 40M and 80M and QSB took out
a few Qs that couldn't be completed. Many unanswered CQs on both bands. Thank
you to all for a fun couple of hours.

K7RL   Single Op HP   14,7392008-09-13 22:15:23
The magic "300" still eludes me, but the mult total is a personal best, as is
the score. I missed ND, NH, KY, LA, and ID for WAS.

20m was almost worthless after the first thirty minutes, leaving a huge amount
of time to spend on 40m. That was intimidating with two hours of daylight
remaining. Fortunately, the band cooperated, or it would have been a VERY long
evening!

Congratulations to K7SS, KH7XS, and any others I may have missed for FB scores.
Thanks to all for another four hours of great, full-speed, adrenaline-pumping
Sprint action.

K7ZS   Single Op HP   7,0932008-09-13 22:16:23
Had to break in middle of sprint for about an hour. new puppy got even with me,
ate a cordless phone and my flip-flops when I wasn't looking. Apparently
doesn't like contesting! (or being ignored?)

What could I have done better?
1. I was the last guy on 20 meters, and only 1 hour into the contest
2. probably could have spent another 15 minutes on 75m
3. should have had a dog sitter, so I could have done the whole thing!

A great primer to what will likely be another challenging contest season at the
low ebb of the cycle, but always enjoyable.

AE6Y   Single Op HP   9,0402008-09-13 22:17:48
That was hard work! As compared to last year, 16 more Qs but 6 fewer mults. Go
figure. But thanks to those who participated. The second radio was very
helpful, but could have been more so if 20 had stayed open longer.

N6EEB(WT6K)   Single Op HP   2,9292008-09-13 22:59:39
My first NA SSB Sprint. Set a goal to make 100 QSOs. Logged 101 QSOs so feeling
that I did what I set out to do. Did a better job of managing my time between
20M, 40M and 80M than I did last week in the NA CW Sprint where I only made 67
contacts. Also need to improve my CW speed to be more successful with the CW
sprint format. Looking forward to next February's NA Sprints.

Very rough, fast event. Poor conditions, especially for my stealth antenna
system, but still lots of fun. Special TNX to the KB'ers who worked me on 80. I
know I'm pretty weak there. 73's to all and to all a good night. Bert, K6CSL
 
AL9A   Single Op HP   3,1002008-09-13 23:49:26
Whew! Had a computer problem with Vista on Thurs. morning and didn't get the
machine back from the shop until twenty minutes before the start! Thank you
Mr. Gates!!!

20M closed early in AK and 40M didn't open to the midwest and east coast until
2 hours into the contest. In between it was 7 land only! Worked Scott KA9FOX
on 40M while he was beaming east. Later heard and worked many SMC stations.
Heard Pat WW9R once, but couldn't bust the pile before he moved. One of these
years I hope to get the hang of the exchange right at the start instead of 30
minutes into it!

AL7IF(@KL7RA)   Single Op HP   8,1452008-09-14 00:20:46
A fun (but slightly frustrating) sprint. The rate on 20 was great until the
world moved to 40... and of course, I had no meaningful propagation on 40 for
another hour or so. I struggled bouncing back and forth between 20 and 40 in
the middle of the contest, and finally 40 decided to cooperate for the last
hour... and in fact, it was getting better and better right up until the end.

I was listening to 80, and heard a lot, but the one or two calls I made went
unheard... and since 40 was still productive, I just stayed there.

I got lucky with the mults, but the number of Qs was disappointing. A few more
sunspots, another half hour of 20, and I would have been a happy camper!

Thanks to Rich, KL7RA for letting me hang at his place for the evening.

K7SS(@K7RI)   Single Op HP   15,7002008-09-14 07:22:46
Twenty meters gave us W7s one of the best days in MONTHS to EU on Saturday.
It started at 7AM and and lasted all day, with the far west edge of
Spain LOUD in the mobile as I drove up to K7RI for the sprint. Well guess
you can't have it all in one day, cuz 20 only lasted about 40 minutes into
the states as the Sprint started. Was hoping for one of those 20m sprints
where
you can ping pong all night on two spots working Qs all over the country. It
wasn't to be. Switched to 40 at 0039 and it was open nicely into the midwest
and southeast. EGAD!!! 3+ hours to go and still bright sunlight outside.
LUCKILY 40 held strong right up to the end of the contest. Lots of casual ops
stopped by for a QSO and that made all the difference this time. THANKS! If we
had had only the "regulars" it would have been dry times really quickly.
Noticed a real lack of strong N5TR, K5GO, W5KFT, W5JAW, K5XR, N3BB, K5OT,
N4OGW, KZ5D, K5NZ etc W5 signals. Wish them the best for a quick recovery from
HURRICANE IKE. Highlight was getting pretty close to a WAS. Thanks to team
members of the Corner Pocketeers W7OM, K7ZS, K7ZSD, K7RL, K7WA and N6TR.
Thanks again to K7RI for the use of the best city lot station in the country.
Congrats to KH7XS for a great number from 2500 miles away from the action,
(looks like top QSOs Bill !) and very good numbers from neighbors W7WA and
K7RL. A good horse race up here in the NW. See you all in the 30 minute mini
sprints on Thursday evenings. Where else in radiosport do you GET TO work dupes
and actually look forward to doing so! Check out "NCCC NS" on google.com to get
info. ALL IN ALL, GREAT FUN..! THANKS ! 73 de Dan K7SS.

FT1000MP, Alpha 78, 1 KW, TH6DXX, dipole, zepp, inverted vee.

20 was fair to W6, W7, KH6, KL7, and CO, but not a lot of activity. Did work
a few 9s, a few in FL, and N4PN by backscatter or groundwave. Went to 40
early. It was relatively short with stations from FL, TN, and VA and further
out workable. Good signals below 7200 from European stations in WAE contest.
West coast and KL7 signals good, particularly later in the period. Never heard
KH7XS there. 75 was fair, but QRN built and it was difficult to copy the weaker
signals. K7RL, K7SS, N6TR, N6RO had very strong signals from the west coast.
Glad to work CM4LS and VE9CEH on 40. Thanks for all the QSOs. Hope for more
activity next time. It would help if more clubs got up teams from their areas,
not necessrily limited to their club members. Hope the TX/LA stations and
operators will come out of the storm damage OK. Think most participants did a
good job of avoiding emergency communications channels.

I will not name names here, but the phone contest demonstrates a lot of good
operators with high scores who are ignoring the requirement of sending (saying)
both calls during each QSO. Most of us seem to do OK with this rule on CW, but
many aren't even trying to comply on phone. It helps if all of the stations
actually in the contest will get into the rhythm of sending the other station's
call at the beginning and then our calls for a station who calls us and our call
at the end when we are to keep the frequency. Doing it any other way leads to a
lot more confusion and QRM.

The NCCC practice sessions on Thursday nights are a good chance to practice so
you will get it right during the real thing. 73, John, K4BAI.

Low activity and poor band conditions.
 
VE4EAR   Single Op LP   1,7162008-09-14 11:26:16
Murphy Strikes again!

Today was supposed to be the big tower/antenna party here. Planned to add the
final section on the tower and hopefully install the 40m beam at least. Well
high winds, sporadic showers and threatening thunder storms put those plans on
hold for at least another week :(

Did manage to quickly rig a low doublet to get on for the sprint and try to
hand out the VE4 mult at least.

20m was dead, just a handful of very weak 6's could be heard. 40m sounded
active but this doublet did not play as well as my Steppir vertical, but that
was broken again and not useable.

Tried 80m and the RFI from the low antenna kept setting off the fire alarm,
dropped power to 10 watts and was not able to grab anyone's attention. Pulled
the plug after a shortend 2 hours.

73 to all!

The equipment here performed without a hitch, the operator had a hitch in his
giddy-up. The 2.5 hrs was more than enough fun time. See ya next year.
 
KH7XS(K4XS)   Single Op HP   15,1202008-09-14 12:43:32
First, congrats to Dan the Man, K7SS, for talking first place.

This was my first attempt at Sprint at KH6 after playing at it for over 20
years from Florida. It is a very different contest from out here. First, no
SO2R yet...it is in the works. Second, there is little if any prop on 80 until
the very end of the contest. Third, 20 meters is the band. I'll bet I have
well over 100 nr 1 contacts from using AB VFO...back and forth, ala HC8N.
Fourth, this contest is like a DX contest out here with the closest station
over 2500 miles away. Man, the east coast guys are weak on 40!

My goal was to make 300 QSOs and finish top ten with 45 mults, which was
accomplished. I should have moved to 40 a little earlier, but that's a
first-timers mistake, not knowing the conditions from KH6 as well as I should.
It won't happen again.

Question: If the NA QSO Party counts KH6 as a mult, how come the NA Sprint
doesn't count KH6 as a mult? Both should either count it, or neither should.
Common sense. Yeah, you know which way I would like it to be!

See you guys in the February version of the contest.
 
WØETT   Single Op LP   5,5802008-09-14 12:53:23
Poor condx on 20m made for a difficult contest. 40m was the place to be in this
one and the QRN on 75m was tough. It seemed that I kept hearing the same loud
stations most of the time.

WØBH   Single Op HP   8,3162008-09-14 13:41:45
Drove back to Kansas through lots of rain after attending a wedding in Branson
MO, but made it home just in time to put KS on the air only to find no 20m
prop. It was nice to hear AK and HI in the first few minutes and a few west
coast, but that was about it. Probably should have dug a few more out of the
mud, but signals were really down or non-existent on 20, so went to 40 in less
than 10 minutes and I obviously didn't come back very often. 40 was the money
band and 80 was workable. Low number stations on 40 the last hour helped
considerably.

Missed and never heard ID NV UT NM ND SD NE OK IA AR LA MI KY and NT AB SK. At
least I worked KS and MO this time (neat call, Steve .. KC0MO).

Will just have to regroup and try again or move to the coast or an island! Look
for me mobile from 33 counties in the TXQP Sep 27-28.

NA4BW   Single Op LP   5,7382008-09-14 16:59:32
HOW NOT TO START A CONTEST or the fastest 7 minutes in radio:

I had already spent a couple of days trying to find out where the FIREANTS were
coming into the house. I thought I had completed the job. Well as this true
story goes, I went to the neighborhood cookout prior to the contest thinking
that since all the equipment was set up I could just casually get to the shack
a few minutes beforehand. I did, but I wasn't alone - they weren't just in the
house again, they were under the radio desk this time! I didn't realize it until
a couple started climbing up my leg.

We are now within 5 minutes of the start. OK - so I position the gooseneck
lamp to get a closer look under the table and yep - the lamp falls and fills
the fire ant infested area with lightbulb shards. Somewhat P/Oed I mutter a few
things and realize something is going to have to give if I'm going to use a
footswitch with socks on.... now in the dark.

After that excitng episode - I'm flying down to the basement for more ant
spray. Clock says 2358 - and next comes some fairly indiscriminate bug
spraying. Then I realize all the glass needs to removed. 0000z rolls right on
by with me - under the table - donating type O.

Finally, at 0002 I work some poor soul who hears quite a mangled exchange from
my side. Well, I guess you had to be here!

Still floating on pesticide fumes 24 hours later - Brian with an I and BTW 20m
was horrible... :>

N4PN   Single Op HP   6,8642008-09-14 18:20:29
Condx sucked in this one....20m was almost useless from the start.
Picked up a few stations on 40m in the WAE while trying to keep
at it in the Sprint....was out of sync way too may times...missed
HI and WV more than once...
Still a fun 3.5 hours..

K7BG   Single Op LP   3,8752008-09-14 19:32:14
Haven't done one of these gum-bangers in a long time. I couldn't copy the RTTY
on or around 3830, I hope he wasn't a new mult. The thing I like about phone
sprints is that by the time the hog farmers start to complain about QRM
everybody has up and QSYed.

By the time I got back to work sprint whatever was on 20m was gone and I only
had antenna for 20m. So worked HI, AK, CA, AZ and WA in very quiet conditions.
Support a rule change to allow HI as mult-:) Thanks for Q's.

Could not believe how weak most everyone was on 20m. Big guns back east
(especially northerners) were piss weak and backscatter on 20m from the west
was noexistent. 40m was great but just not enough stations to sustain 2.5
hours of time. 80 sounded pretty good but as usual the city noise here is my
downfall.

Great to meet up with all the hearty-souls that endured the sunspot minimum
with me this weekend. It's only gonna get better from here on guys!!!

As noted, 20M was long and gone. Setup for SO2R but not able to do it..just
moved from band to band. Good warmup for contest season. 73, Craig K9CT

Can't believe I had more contacts on 75 than 20! First time in a Sprint
competitively for a number of years. I will be more active in the future.
 
W9RE   Single Op HP   10,9122008-09-16 21:36:32
6 hours of a windstorm on Sunday, screwed up my internet thus the late report.

Thanks for the q's, got to be better next time.
 
W4EF   Single Op HP   4,2162008-09-17 00:53:02
Rig: FT1000MP MKV / Alpha 91B

Software: N1MM Logger

Antennas: 20M -> Trapped Vertical @20'
40/80M -> 160 meter inverted-L (60' vertical section)

Always humbling to operate from my home station. Congratulations to the lucky 7
who heard me on 20 meters.

I had to leave town early Sunday morning after the Sprint, and didn't have time
to send in the score till I got back tonight -- not that you were missing much.
Ouch!

Great scores from W7 land, and points west. :-) As others have mentioned, 20
was a mess and went from bad to worse shortly after the contest started. That
made for a long night on 40 and 80. Many, many, many unanswered CQs. I did
get a nice signal report after the contest via e-mail, from an SWL on the East
Coast, so at least someone was hearing me.

Mults missed: AR, CT, IA, ID, KY, LA, ND, NE, SC, SD, VT, VE4/5/6/8. Only
mult I heard but didn't work was when VE4EAR called me on 40, but I could not
finish the QSO, and lost him while trying to turn the beam up his way. Thanks
for trying! Danny promised to sell me one of his little bag of mults, next
time I see him. So, I'm hopeful for better mults in the future.

Rigs: FT-1000MP, IC-746 (I think I had about 5 second radio QSOs)
Antennas (1 tower):
F12 C4XL @ 95ft (2 ele on 20m & 40m)
F12 EF180C @ 100ft (rotatable dipole on 80m)

Thanks for the Q's and I hope everyone has a great contest season!
