Hi all, I had a fun time in the Sprint last night. Managed 17Q's in 13 grids in 3 hours of operating. Didn't work my own grid or anything north or east. Well I did work Stu, VE2XX, in FN25 so that's a little North of me I guess.. Best DX was Dave, K1RZ, in FM19 at 554 miles, right before I packed it in. That was on CW with pretty darn good signals. VE3ZV in EN92 heard me on CW when I was working W1GHZ but we never managed a QSO.. That path is a few miles longer than K1RZ. Anyway, I made 10 QSO's on SSB, 7 on CW and ZERO on digital modes. I did check FT-8 occasionally but didn't see anything I hadn't already worked.. There was a LOT of QSB, but condx seemed to improve later in the evening..

anyway, 17 in 13 = 221 score woo hoo!
