Once again demonstrating our adaptability, during the Sporint last night people gradually moved down the 40M band till you could find sprinters all the way down to 7004.

And now it's a problem to work around some potential QRM for a couple hours?

I heard the RTTY-ers as low as 7027 and the Sprinters as low as 7002. I thought we Sprinters were true gentlemen--staying clear of the RTTY-ers. There definitely was potential for some serious head butting last night. Goes to show that Sprinters have a great deal of respect for fellow contesters, even if they are using a different mode. Kudos guys!
