Comments - I won't repeat anyone's soapbox, as they have already been 
posted to the RTTY reflector. So, I'll just throw in my comments. 
First the adminsitrative stuff:  There was a nice turnout of 
stations.  There were a total of 61 different calls in everyone's 
logs. Only 2 were non-busted-call uniques.  34 logs were submitted. 
Congrats to Sante, IK0HBN for being the sole DX entry (not including 
KP3 and KH6) and being up at that crazy hour of the morning  (5 AM) 
for the sprINT :.)
Considering the number of first-time sprinters, the QSY rule seemed 
to be adhered to pretty well. One thing that can use a little help is 
the format of the exchange. Jeff, K1AM, posted an excellent template 
to use, which I will save and include with next year's rules 
announcement. Ideally the QSOs should come in pairs, and ending your 
QSO with a verbose "QSL TU QSO I WILL QSY NOW" or something like that 
is just too long for another station to come along and throw his call 
in once or twice.
There were also suggestions about doing 80/40m instead of 40/20m in 
the future.  I'd like to hear from some of the west coast guys about 
their opinion of 80m, and whether 0100-0300Z is too early to make 
good use of the band.
