Thanks to all that participated - the consensus was that it was fun and
there should be another honor sprint targeted at DX participation.
Imagine - a two-hour WW sprint!  Stay tuned...

Comments: That was certainly different!  16 band changes - plus a few that
brought no replies.  Nice to work a few DX stations as well. [WD4AHZ]

The highlight was working VQ9VK! First one I ever heard and there he was
calling CQ NA! He didn't seem to understand the QSY rule but I didn't
bother to try explaining. Heck, this is all just for fun anyway! [KU7Y]

Thrill of my (short) operation in the contest from the new club station of
the Univ. of MO - Rolla, with 100W to an 80M dipole on 15M was being

Just a little activity between family stuff. [N6TR]

It is simpler to keep the rules the same as the NA sprint, but I would
welcome you opening it out so it is more attractive to people outside NA. 
I started late because I was watching the FA Cup Final (football) but got
the impression that activity levels were not very high. Could not hear any
NA on 10m so started on 15. I enjoyed the contest, I am a great fan of
sprint contesting. [G4BUO]

10 was dead as a doornail.  7 QSO's there.  15 and 20 were good and even
worked VQ9 and some Europeans as well.  Maybe the next one use 15/20 or
15/20/40 and call it the worldwide Sprint, time adjusted for best DXing
both ways?  August?  October? [W4PA]

This was my first stab at playing with two radios, and it went very
smooth.  I didn’t use any computer rig control, so my apologies to some
guys I accidentally called as a dupe at the start.  It took me a little
bit to get in the swing of things with manually entering band changes for
both radios.  It was nice to have a bunch of DX participating!  It added a
some excitement and much needed extra QSOs.  Thanks to Don W6EEN for
letting me do a little warmup before WPX. [N6RT]

Had to leave for a ball game.  Seems like the test is gaining some
popularity! [W9RE]

Enjoyed the Honor Sprint.  Sorry conditions were not better and that there
was not a lot more activity. [K4BAI]

Glad to offer (the only?) NY multiplier. 10 was a ghost land. Tnx to those
who pulled my signal out of the mud.  Took a few Qs to get into the Sprint
"swing" - NA helped.  Tried to operate without my real keyer and paddle,
BAD idea (for me).  Hooked it back up 15 min into contest. [N2MG]

This was fun, and good practice.  I seemed to run out of stations to work
before it was all over.  Maybe more folks will give this a try in the
future. [K4RO]

Activity only on 15, unfortunately the only band not tuned yet on my
Vertical R7 antenna!!! [I2WIJ]

Only had a few minutes to operate.  Look forward to the next one! [WC4E]

Might be fun to have a CW/Phone combo, maybe double points for CW?  Just
enough time for a little workout. [W7GG]

Interesting to have a high-band sprint.  It was also encouraging to have
several serious European entrants.  I think next time we'll have to count
country multipliers outside North America.  Nice to see VQ9VK show up
calling, "CQ NA"! [N0AX]
