Well, the last time I entered a SSB Sprint was the EU SSB Autumn Sprint 2009
from 4U1ITU, which was huge fun:  unique callsign, good location, real antennas
and a LP division win.

What a difference a year makes.   Tonight almost every QSO needed multiple
repeats, and only got a QSO if I was the lone caller.   After 1 1/2 hours my
voice was failing and I switched off the radio.   Put it this way:  my Salmon
Run score of 1,238 (10 QSO's in 10 minutes) was higher than my Sprint score

The bright spot was being called by AL7IF on 20-meters, also nice to work a few
NCCC Sprint regulars including W9RE, W7OM and N6ZFO.   Every time I enter a
weekend SSB contest, I appreciate the NSL more for it's high rates and short
