Erik: We didn't forget you. The policy explictly excludes VE0 stations from
using special prefixes. It also excludes VY9 (Industry Canada), CY9 (St Paul)
and CY0 (Sable) stations from using special prefixes. I guess VE0s are already

Subject: BC Trash on 40M
Does anyone know which BC stn (or other source) is trashing the whole 40M
amateur band with spurious sigs, between 0230-0400Z or so each evening?
I've heard rumors that Fred, K3ZO, believes it to be Radio Vatican on 7305.
In any case, has anyone tried to get ARRL or FCC involved? - or the Italian
Amateur Radio Scociety if it is Radio Vatican? We need to get the
appropriate channel(s) working on the mess before contest season.

Club or Team Name: Potomac Valley Radio Club #1
Comments: Terrible Corona and static crashes most of the afternoon.
Disconnected all the antennas at one point, then took a look outside
and decided I'd keep going with only the tribanders connected.
Things gradually cleared up, but should have taken some time off early.
Unbelievable! Neighbor calls me at 7PM telling me I'm wiping out his
VCR and he cant watch the tapes he rented! I tell him my set is clean,
my TV is clear, and I'm running low power! Oh well...
Took my first break around 11PM...walked upstairs and Laurie is just
watching the credits on a tape SHE rented. I ask her "any
interference"? No...not a trace. Goofy.
An improved score from last time, so I'm moving in the right direction!
Ran 2 radios: an FT1000 for the band hopper and a TS830 dedicated to
40 meters (got to get another digital radio!)
Antennas: Pair of KT34XA's at 35 and 70 feet for 10-15-20
40M Inv V beam at 70' - 40M dipole at 45'
80M Inv V at 100'
160M 1/4 sloper from 110'
Other hardware: Top Ten band decoders/ Dunestar 600 bandpass filters
Dualing 386 es 486 computers running NA 9.16 linked

Subject: SprINT results!!
RESULTS OF THE EIGHTH INTERNET SPRINT
The eighth internet sprint was held on Sunday, the 23rd of July (UTC)
from 0100 to 0300Z on 20 and 40 meters. Conditions were better than
the last few SprINTs with good signals from most areas of the country
to all other areas of the country.
Twenty meters was open the whole contest, and the second place score
came from a single band 20 meter effort. This was done by Mike, N0BSH.
Making his first appearance as the winner this time was Randy, K5ZD.
Randy pulled away near the end of the contest with some hot two radio
operating. He ended up 2 QSOs ahead of N0BSH and three QSOs ahead of
N6TR who had his winning streak of six victories snapped.
The highest perfect score (and the only one at that) was obtained by
Steve, W5KI, with 30 QSOs.
Activity seemed to be up for the contest. The numbers bare this out
with nearly a new high in the total QSOs found, and a record number of
callsigns found. Having the bands open to all parts of the country
help make it sound like more people are on as well.
John Zapisek worked long and hard to bring the name traces up to
80 percent. There were a few missing logs which made this harder
than it has been in the past.
The proposed date for the next SprINT is Thursday, Dec 28th UTC
(Wednesday local time) at 0100Z on 40 and 80 meters.
Now over to John for the results:

#OK + #NG is the raw claimed score. #NG is the number of busted contacts.
Some contacts may be busted for more than one reason, so RXNG + TXNG + DUPE
may be greater than #NG. Stations making more than 20 QSOs that did not
submit a log were penalized one point per unreported QSO!
All entrants' graded logs are being returned to them via e-mail. Further,
all these logs are available via FTP. The FTP site is maspar.maspar.com
(126.96.36.199). Look in directory /pub/k2mm/int for file YYMM-log.zip
(YYMM=9507). Also look for past results write-ups in files YYMM-res.zip.
ACCURACY RECORD FALLS AGAIN
The record for the most QSOs with 100% accuracy was broken again, this time
by Steve/W5KI with 30 Qs. The previous holder, K2MM with 28, was reported
to have gone into seclusion to salve his wounds and plot his comeback!

But then you might have missed your chance at fame and acclaim. Seems like
you were copying everything you heard FB. Congratulations, Steve!
AND, AT THE WIRE, IT'S . . .
This running produced a photo finish, just like last time. Randy/K5ZD
overcame a 7-Q lead by Tree/N6TR to narrowly beat both him and Mike/N0BSH.
The x-axis for this graph is a constant rate of 170 QSOs per two hours.
Each line above/below the x-axis is one valid QSO more/less than that rate.
(Gee, this three-way horse-race graph sure looks busy. Bzzzt!)

WHO NEEDS TWO RADIOS . . .
It's interesting that the top two finishers had respectively the most and
the least number of band changes. Randy's log showed 18 changes -- more
than twice as many as next-nearest Dave/K6LL with eight. Tree changed
bands only seven times, and second-place Mike stayed put on 20 meters!

The NCCC has an award given to members who have accumulated 5 million points
in contest submissions. Al made 7 Qs and busted 2, so now he can add 5
points to his 5-Meg-Award total!

It was a lot of fun operating this time from the QTH of Al Elge, AG6D. Al's
TS-930 runs a full 150 W, and the KT-34XA and 40-2CD really play.

John's not the first to mistakenly run QRO in the SprINT by any stretch.
Tell him he's in good company! And tell him we still want his log!

I've wondered about that. When Tree first announced that rule, he said he
thought it might only be temporary -- until activity picked up. But the
contest has been working so well just the way it is. . . . How about it,
SprINT'ers? How many of you feel the number of inter-dupe QSOs should be

Last time, Mal/W5XX sent MAL to everybody. Mal got on this time, too. He

Hmmm. I wonder how much CORNO's absence contributed to this running's

You might not need as much of a configuration file as you think. Tree has
updated TR-Log's default messages and settings for the Internet SprINT.
A bare-bones LOGCFG.DAT might be all you need!
REMAINING NAME TRACES
This running had a large number of missing logs, which resulted in the
lowest match percentage since the very first running. The quality of the
name traces has suffered from that -- the coverage of the following listing
is only about 80% instead of the usual 98 to 99%.

READER'S GUIDE TO SPRINT NAME TRACES
wa1mug 1 john ==w1ua=
kz4h 8 jon ===-===w6go.
WA1MUG started with the name John. The first station he worked got the name
OK, then passed it to W1UA. The name John showed up OK in all three logs.
W1UA then worked KZ4H who recorded Jon in his log. Either W1UA mis-sent the
name or KZ4H mis-copied or mis-logged the name on his QSO #7. KZ4H then
passed Jon along to the next station he worked with his QSO #8.
Jon survived until W6GO copied it on his last QSO. It showed up in the logs
of all stations in between, except for one station who did not send one in.
wb2oeu 1 fred =====-=====-=====wb2rkk-wb2woi=
wa2uwa 17 stinky -===-========-?-=========wa2eah-wa2ccf?
WB2OEU started with Fred which showed up OK in WB2RKK's log. RKK then
worked WB2WOI who did not send in a log. But WOI's next QSO# was found in
WA2UWA's log, and UWA recorded Stinky. The error may have occurred anywhere
between RKK sending and UWA receiving.
UWA then passed Stinky with his QSO #17, and Stinky eventually made it into
WA2EAH's enormous log. EAH then worked WA2CCF, who did not send in a log,
and the trace was lost. Along the way, the name passed through at least two
consecutive stations who did not send in logs. This made manual suturing of
the traces necessary.
k2kir 1 howie =========wa2spl=
w2mta 20 bill =========w2fr
w2fr 30 dill =========wb2drw.
K2KIR started with Howie. WA2SPL said he copied and sent Howie, but W2MTA
said he copied Sowie. MTA's log also said he found Sowie offensive, so he
changed it to Bill before sending it with his QSO #20. W2FR copied Bill OK,
but his log said he's always had trouble sending Bill, so he changed it to
Dill before passing it on with his #30.
k1znd 12 dave *========wa1hco-wa1iqj#
wa1pid 73 don ==========================wb2fzo+k2eiu/5
K1ZND worked someone on his QSO #11 who sent him Dave -- or so he thought.
The other station didn't think the QSO complete, and so continued by sending
Dave on his next QSO without putting ZND in his log. Meanwhile, ZND
blissfully passed on the freshly cloned Dave with his #12.
Dave made it OK to WA1HCO who passed it to WA1IQJ. But IQJ was cluelessly
sending Don to everybody, including the next station he worked, WA1PID.
This Don survived until he got to WB2FZO. FZO thought he passed Don to
K2EIU/5, but EIU was really working someone else, so Don fell on the floor.

Subject: Another marriage
Yuri UA9OPA from Novosobirsk is getting hitched tommorrow in Seattle.
His beautiful fiancee Tanya also from Novosobirsk has been here for
about a month and adapting just fine thank you. It promises to be an event
never seen in these parts as I will be the best man and my dear wife Yana
aka UA0AYL the maid of honor. I promise not to drink to much Vodka because
I heard it kills brain cells or something like that! We plan to load up the
Space needle as thats where the dinner party will be so you all can be part
of the festivities. We should have a fairly good signal on 160!!!
