Best 432 MHz Spring Sprint for me that I can remember. AMAZING activity in the Chicago/SE Wisconsin area. Cool temps, dry and maybe a touch of enhancement. Mults total is based on 'classic' Rover scoring; count mults separately from each grid-4 visited and add them up. Four unique grids worked. Breakdown by Grid-4s I visited: Grid Qs Ms EN51 19 5 EN52 19 6 EN61 17 5 EN62 17 5 Tot. 72 21 = 1512 Total DX - 3679 km Longest path, 332 km, was to WW8M in EN72xf from EN52xa but only caught Don from one of the grids I visited. Nice to hear Don on airwaves again. Fifteen additional QSOs >100 km, 45 between 10 & 99 km and 11 <10 km. FIFTEEN different calls worked, two of those rovers. I managed 'sweeps' (working fixed stations from all four of the grid-4s I visited) with EIGHT stations. Three more stations were worked from three of the four and two stations were only worked from one grid-4. Completed a full 'grid dance' (16 Qs) with one rover and 13 of 16 with another rover. 43 Qs with fixed stations and 29 Qs with the two rovers. States worked - IL (55 Qs, 7 fixed calls, 2 rovers), WI (15 Qs, 4 calls), MI (1 Q) and IN (1 Q). Equipment used: FT-991 (50 W), KB6KQ 2m Loop (a Norm original) and a Diamond A430S10 10 el. yagi raised on a 15' Painter's Pole at several stops. Thanks to Kent, KA2KQM, and Mike, WB8BZK, for their continued efforts to conduct the Spring Sprints and encourage participation in them. Thanks also to the Central States VHF Society for their sponsorship. Thanks also to ALL who were on and participated in the 2017 432 MHz Spring Sprint. 73, JK
