Wow! Twenty was great. I ran the first 4 QSOs. Bands very quiet and nice.
WVØH Signals were up and down from the Denver area. Mostly QSB but did manage to squeak out 15 Qs on 20m and 1 on 40m. Very noisy here on 40 though.
Many really strong signals on 20 meters this Labor Day
holiday evening. Biggest signals into rural PA tonight were NQ2W and NK6A.
Thanks for the funand nice contacts.
I had a much better performance in this month's sprint!I
worked as long as I could before the storms just got too close. I had 19
contacts with 12different states and 2 different Canadian provinces. My
station still weighs25 pounds until I get my mobile back. Twenty meters had a
lot of greatsignals but had QRN and 40 was really tough. Thanks for all
of the calls and
hopefully we will get to see everyone and some new ones next
Fifteen contacts in 10 states. I was trying to top Henry,
W5HNS's numbers from the August Sprint but as usual I couldn’t even come
close.Nice goingHenry with 29 Qs last month.I must have worked K4BAI every time I’ve playedon ARS Sprint.He’s
in my log 13 times at a 5 watt level.Thank you, Johnfor always being there. I actually worked two Texas stations
on my ButternutHF-9V.That antenna
usually doesn’t work well locally.WB5BKL and WA8ZBTboth were kind enough to make contact on 40 and 80 meters
giving me 4 Texas
QSOs in the Spring.
Thanks fellows. A special thanks to Bob, KE7GKM for sticking with me to complete a QSO to Idaho this
evening.Nice work, Bob.
Only had 10 contacts tonight. Things dried up on 20 mtrs.
for me about 0238Z. Running single band with my MTR2 at 4 watts to a tuned
dipole at 28 feet.Whiterook paddle , earbuds and 370 mah lipo. Got out to
California this time.Nice signal from NK6A. Last station worked was W1AW/7 in
Arizona at 0238.Thanks for a fun evening everyone. See ya next month.
Thanks to WB5BKL, K4BAI, NK6A, and KØFL for this month's 20M
Sprint QSOs. 72 from Arizona.
K1 at 5 W to a 2-element mini-beam at 25 ft for 10, 15, and
20 meters and an inverted V at 40 ft for 40 m. 20 meters was the money band
with 15 QSOs. 40meters was quiet with only 3 QSOs - all from NC. Two bander
with W4VHH.Thanks for the contacts and thanks to the organizers.
Good activity on 20 and 40.
No answers to CQs and no sprinters heard on 80. 40 was noisy, particularly toward the end.QSOs by band:20M:35.40M:9.20M was still open
for QSOs with KE7GKM in ID and WA8REI at the end ofthe Sprint period.Thanks for all QSOs.
Twenty died just before start time. Went to 40 for the
night. Band was quiet. Too quiet. No QRM. No QRN. No sigs almost. Tnx to stalwarts
WB5BKL and K4BAI.Wouldn't be a sprint without them in the log. Had a call
from WA5FAT inAlabama to round out the night. He called to get my SKCC
number. Still a funnight. Bring on October! 72 from Houston.
It was a strange event. I got three contacts on 20M, three
on 40M, and only one on 80M. Conditions were not the best and it sounded like
a fair number ofusual participants just were not there for the Labor Day
event. Thanks toWB5BKL for 40M and 80M contacts – always a great signal. I
barely got theATS-3A charged up in time for the event, but it wasn’t
enough of a charge toallow any CQ ops, just calls to others already calling CQ.
Hoping for betterconditions and more participants next month! 72 from
