Crazy start. Got weird glitches in N1MM. Stopped, copied the 4 logged QSOs to paper, opened new log in N1MM using NS Sprint CW setup. Logging worked right after that. Then realized how sad 20m was sounding. 40 was good and 80 was better. I got beat out on so many jump balls, it was demoralizing. Piling on that, it seemed that CQ rates were less than 1 for every 10 or 15 CQ attempts. In spite of that, it was great fun to the end. Only to find my final score (12k) was way off scores of similar QSO count scores. I can only figure NS Sprint scoring is different than NA Sprint scoring. Manually counted the mults and came up with a more reasonable score. See y'all in August Sprint! 73 de Dale, KG5U Station: 1 - Elecraft K3S Ant: AV640 (10-15-20), 40m inv vee, 80m inv vee S/W: N1MM Classic (Plus is too buggy at KG5U)
