I was disappointed that the 50 MHz Sprint was slipped to two weeks later than it had been in recent years. Also, with a meeting of the Society of Midwest Contesters happening on the same day, many of the QSO 'targets' that can be counted on from Illinois and surrounding areas were absent. Perhaps I self-fulfilled my prophecy but, not expecting much activity or propagation enhancement, I went out, planning to operate only the first hour or so and with JUST a magmounted vertical antenna. I did manage to work two local stations (KO9A and K0PG) and one more distant station (thanks to N9LB for pulling my puny signal out of the noise at about 150 km) from all 4 of my grid stops. Caught a fourth station (N9SW) while mobile but he was just in there for the one Q. Thanks to Bruce, NT4RT, for his continued management of this event and to the SVHFS for their continued sponsorship. Thanks also to 'the other Bruce', WA7BNM, for providing the web page for posting scores for this and many other contests. 73, JK
