222 MHz Spring Sprint
Class: Rover LP
Operating Time (hrs): 3
Total: QSOs = 38 Mults = 29 Tot Dist(km) = 5892 Total Score = 1,102
Surprising conditions given that the Chicago area had been 'blessed' with
1 to 3 inches of mid-April snow and temps were only in the 30s.
It was also a nice level of activity for a 222 MHz event, yielding a greater
total of path lengths than I had for last week's 144 MHz, despite 1/3 fewer
Mults total is based on 'classic' Rover scoring; count mults separately from
each grid-4 visited and add them up. Ten unique grids worked.
Breakdown by Grid-4s I visited:
Grid Qs Ms
EN51 7 6
EN52 6 5
EN61 12 8
EN62 13 10
Tot. 38 29 = 1102
Total DX - 5892 km
Best DX was to K8TQK in EM89je from EN62ad, 519 km. (Also worked K8TQK from
EN61ax for 508 km); the path to K8GDT in EN91bf was 2nd longest, 516 km (also
from EN62ad). Several QSOs were made over paths on the order of 400 km to a
number of stations in the Detroit area.
16 different calls worked, worked 3 of those from all four of the Grid-4s I
Thanks to Kent, KA2KQM, for all of his leg work to take on the hosting duties
for this year's Spring Sprints and to Central States for their sponsorship.
Thanks also to Bruce Horn, WA7BNM, for setting up these score reporting forms
for the Spring Sprints.
Thanks finally to ALL who were on and participated in the 2014 222 MHz Spring
