 Soapbox Comments

 The ultimate S&P contest.  Sprint QSY rule confused some.  Especially those
 on local packet who were trying to work VS6BG when he wouldn't stay on one

This was my attempt to simulate what it's like to copy 10 watt JA 
stations in California during WPX and CQWW.  Still putting antennas 
together, I literally threw a Field-Day 80m dipole up on the roof, 
attached to a 6' stepladder for a total height of around 29'.

This was a lot of fun, and I'll look forward to trying it again when I 
have a tribander up.  There seemed to be a fair amount of activity, 
although I did hear a lot from the same set of stations, suggesting that 
the Internet Sprint no-dupe rule would be very useful here.

I'd be interested to know how propagation was from AP to 6-land on 20m.  
I did a lot of calling to no avail.  I'm sure VS6BG was very frustrated 
from trying to copy me on that band.  Was it just my lack of antenna?

Things sounded very successful for a first outing -- I recommend it to 
all who can get up early (04.30 for me).

Six year old Kendra (K0RF) had 39 qsos and 14 colors for a total of 
1092 points.
By the way, 21 of the qsos were with kids.
This was great fun and she can't wait to try again. She even asked 
how she can do contests with me.

    AP Sprint Score  9V1YC

41 Q's  26 mults = 1066

(31 Q's on 20m,  10 Qs on 40m)

Not bad for a first run.  Had a fair turnout, and was pleasantly
surprised to hear so many USA calling in.  AI7B, N6ZZ and N4TQO had
killer signals for 150w.  Heard VK5GN but missed him every time -
no path between us at that hour.  As Phil said - the ulitmate S & P

Interesting how the NA crowd called "CQ AP" while most of the Asians called
"CQ TEST".  Experience from the NA sprint I guess....

High point:  Explaining the QSY rule to HC5AI.

Low point:   Explaining the QSY rule to BV7WB.

Next time, on KE9A's advice I think we should up the limit to
max power (i.e. whatever your license allows) and have a SprINT
style work-the-dupes rule. Should make it a tad more fun.

Any suggestions for when to hold the the next one?

The WX gods smiled on K4BFT here in the Rocket City, the "popcorn"
thunderstorms stayed away from the site.  It didn't get REALLY HOT until 2PM
local on Sunday when we were in the teardown mode. Out socre is down about
10% from last year.  Propagation is the culprit.  In '94 15 meters stay open
'til past midnight (local) and we posted our highes score ever.  The year 15
went back to "normal" and 10 was pretty awful.  Our Novices were off a 100
QSOs on 10 and K4BFT was also down a bunch on 10 and 40 SSB.  Our CW output
was within 10 QSOs of last year, all the drop off was on the SSB side except
for 20 which did just a little better than last year.  Only had one rig
(Novice) go flakey, and only one antenna (15SSB). Will have both fixed for
next year.

Total  QSOs		5303

Our score relative to last year will only be down about 5% due to the
"other" bonus that was tossed in this year.  We had 67 ARRL members make at
least one QSO, 670 points.
