The Fall 2017 6 Meter SPRINT was held on a beautiful summer day in late August. My XYL & I took advantage of the great weather to tour the Eastern side of the Olympic Peninsula in Grids CN87 & 88. We saw lots of the Puget Sound area on our ride, lots of tourists, lavender farms, and the distant Olympic Mountains, islands, & Mt. Baker. We briefly stopped at the South end of Discover Bay (at sea level!)to try to make a QSO from CN87: just lots of noise. I worked WA7ZWG (CN88) from the Dungeness Beach Park in Sequim, WA (CN88). Later, while waiting to board the Pt. Townsend - Coupeville Ferry, I made 6 QSOs with the usual PNW operators. I operated from a hilltop (~~300 ft msl)near downtown Pt. Townsend. Results: lots of good scenery & sighteeing, 200 miles driven during the day, rode on 3 ferry boats, ate great Thai food in Sequim, made 7 QSOs from only one grid, but 'operated' from 2 grids. Successfully making QSOs from only 1 grid made me a "Single Op" entry instead of my typical "rover" entry. I told my XYL that I'd be happy if I made 1 QSO in this SPRINT, so my small goal was achieved! Rig: FT991 @ 20 watts and 1/4 wave mag mount. Thanks to all who heard my peanut whistle.
