KI4MZC Operated by: Donald

Used a IC-7410 with a dipole and MFJ straight key. I tried QRP tonight, my first Sprint as a General. I might have done better if I were a little quicker on the key. Best band by far tonight for me was 40m; also got a few on 20m. Good to see my new old friends again: WA4FAT Bill, K4BAI John, and others. Thanks for your help and encouragement. 73 de ki4mzc



K8JD Operated by: John

Mostly split between 80 and 40M bands, tried for 160M and only got 2 QSOs there.
Made my 80 and 40M contacts on the old TS440s rig, had the Yaesu 990 on 160M.
160 seemed pretty weak, even listened to W1AW after the event and they were way down, S 5-6. 80 and 40 had mostly S9 and better signals. Had constant run of QSOs during the 2 hours!
73 all, see you an the air !

VA5CW Operated by: Bill

Got in with about 10 min left. Made a couple of contacts, and that was it. Hope to be around for the full 2 hours next time. At least one counted for my Tx8, so that was a bonus. Looking forward to the November WES to see if I can get more focused, now that I am learning more about how the scoring works. I was never working same contact on multi bands, so ... something learned. Never into contesting until these little SKCC sprints, so am starting to have some fun with them.



VE3FMW Operated by: Ron

Pretty good conditions on 40 metres tonight; its starting to look a lot like winter propo is just around the corner. Nice to hear AL, AZ and CA on a weekday evening; Bill, Rick and Jerry cruised right over my S-8 noise level with solid signals. Thanks to all for making it another fun contest. 73 Ron VE3FMW

Thanks to the organizers and participants for another well-attended and enjoyable 2-hour Sprint. I wasn't sure I'd be able to make it until the very last moment, but so glad I could.
