It's been a while since I've done a full effort in the Phone Sprint. It 
was pretty humbling. It was great to hear all the regular participants 
alongside a bunch of folks who I suspect were getting their feet wet for 
the first time. I was especially happy to hear my host for the CW 
Sprint, Dave VE3OI, getting into the mix as I think this might have been 
his first time doing the Sprint.

As others have commented it seemed like there were too many contests 
going on this weekend including a number of state QSO parties which made 
for some interesting exchanges.

I think my best DX was working K9PG on 75 meters. Paul was running low 
power to a 40 meter dipole, but still managed to come through Q5 (at 
least his call did, the exchange took a few tries). I heard but couldn't 
connect with VE7 and Kentucky.

Great fun!
