139 QSOs for me. FT-757GX, no computer, Alpha Delta DX-CC @ 25'

Botched QSO #2 by sending my name (Ray) instead of the other guy's.
SprINT not Sprint! *duh* Apologies to Todd (WD0T?) for killing
his name off in the first minute.

I guess I was the only one to have good propagation on 20!
Was able to work all over the West Coast and the Northeast just
fine from southeast MS. 68 QSOs in 53 minutes, while it seemed
everyone else was struggling.

Since 40 is normally my best band I QSYed at 0053Z, at the first
sign of slowdown on 20. Too early! Went 4 minutes with only one QSO.
Rate went up, but not like on 20. Lots of SSB and packet crud and
weak signals underneath a few ear-splitters. 71 QSOs in 67 minutes.

Tricky names: Bev/Bevo, Able/Abel/Adel. No OJ, but we had an Ito.
SprINT r00lz! Can't wait for #8. 73,

I suggested to Lee that if cq-contest wasn't appropriate, that perhaps
the dx reflector (dx at unbc.edu to post, dx-request at unbc.edu to subscribe)
was.  I did not hear back.
And, if the DX reflector is not appropriate (I don't see why not),
then we could create a propagation reflector with the help of someone
with the resources.
I also enjoy'd Lee's postings...

K8HVT SprINT Results:

                         20 Meters   45
                         40 Meters   59

                           Total    104

My first SprINT.  What fun!  I've been missing the regular Sprints in Feb 
and Sep due to biz trips so the SprINTs are especially welcome.  Can't 
wait for the next one.  

Rig:    TS-930S
Ants:   A3 at 31'   (20)
        wire at 60' (40)

I used NA Sprint program for logging and partial sending, filling in 
names manually.  Seemed to work well.  Forgot how much fun it is to send 

See you all next time.
