Nice weather conditions and decent activity in the northwest suburban area of Chicago-land, helped by three other local Rovers out and about, but, as usually happens, it had definitely quieted down by the end of the second hour so I wrapped it up. And it probably didn't help that I was using JUST a mag mount vertical instead of a horizontally polarized antenna. Mults total is based on 'classic' Rover scoring; count mults separately from each Grid-4 visited and add them up. I did not manage to work any grid locators outside of the four I visited. Breakdown by Grid-4s I visited: Grid Qs Ms EN51 12 4 EN52 12 4 EN61 12 4 EN62 12 4 Tot. 48 16 = 768 Total DX - 931 km Close to 2016's Spring QSO and Mult. counts, but MUCH less distance. Best DX were my QSOs from EN61ax and EN62aa to W9ZIH in EN51nv at 77 km. Only 7 different calls worked, but worked ALL of them from all four of the Grid-4s I visited (including a 'full' dance with one other rover and 'half' dances with two more rovers). Thanks to Kent, KA2KQM, and Mike, WB8BZK, for their continued work as the Spring Sprint hosting team and to Central States for their sponsorship. Thanks also to ALL who were on and participated in the 2017 144 MHz Spring Sprint. 73, JK
