Great job as usual Jeff and Ron! Thanks to all who participated in the Sprint, I had FUN!

I'll have a chance to look at the log tonight when I get home, I live a bit over an hours drive from the site. (I had to leave the site "early" [22:30] because I had to get up at 04:30 this morning!) I'll give a better summary after I have time to review the log.

But 57 QSOs and 27 Grids...

I was due to be out of town next week, but with Uncle in hiatus I will be home (have to flip a coin with W8ZN to see who ops the 432 MHz Sprint!).

Nice job Ron. About the same here, though I managed to find 3 FN34's. Also 2 FN35's but no FN25. And no one in WNY except LIM as you mention. I also did something I don't think I've done before - I actually called a couple of times on 223.5 and worked 3 stations. All 3 seemed to be trying in the sprint. Nice
to see.

Total was 53 X 20 grids.

Hope to Cu on 432 next week.

Activity started out good, but only 3 QSOs in the last
1.5 hours. Kept calling toward missing nearby grids,
like FN21 & FN33/34 but no luck. I found N2SLN in FN22,
and KA2LIM in FN12 fairly quickly, but worked no other
upstate/western NY grids. It's a vast tier of 8 or 9 grids
that I never seem to find anyone in during the Sprints.
Yet during non-contest times I work those grids! Frustrating!
But I was happy to work more than one FN35, FN43, FM18, & FM19.
It's a lot of fun just to hear familiar voices.
45 Q's & 16 Grids total.
TNX to all who answered my calls and to the
Sponsors. See you in the 432 Sprint.
-73, Ron WZ1V, FN31rh
