The Sprint is contesting in its purest form!

Well, either I'm a total lid or I was in the wrong place, propagation-wise.
20 went long early and I tried to paste together the second and third hours
by dialing both radios. Same basic thing happened with the 40-to-80
transition. Only made six second-radio QSOs this time. Maybe I need to try
the dueling CQ option in TR next time. :-)

It was nice to work so much West Coast on 80. The new (to me) Force 12
rotatable dipole seems to work well. WW2Y still beat me on 80 a few times.
Peter, what the heck are you running?!
