SOAPBOX REPORTS

----------
K0FRP:
Rig : Elecraft K1
Antennas : 4 El Mono at 82' for 20M, 2 El Mono for 40M.
de Al, Aurora, CO
----------
W0NTA:
Operated a K2 at 5 watts output to a multiband doublet antenna
up 30 feet and a 3 element SteppIR at 20 feet. I operated from
my mountain cabin at 7000 feet near Estes Park, CO. Conditions
were good here. Another fun sprint. Thanks for organizing it.
73, Dick, Greeley, CO
---------
K3ESE:
Great sprint, as always. K2 xcvr at 5W to a 302' horizontal
loop at 50' and an 88' EDZ at 45'. Due to parenting and fatigue,
only managed to work about 2 hours this time.
de Lloyd, Reisterstown, MD
---------
K0ZK:
Rig: Elecraft K2 s/n 692, 5 Watts.
Antenna: 33' Ground Plane made of 3" irrigation tubing.
Homebrew antenna coupler with MIL. rotary inductor.
Schurr Einbau Wabbler paddle. Homebrew memory keyer.
Autec QF1A audio filter.
I worked a few Europeans, minutes after the QRP contest ended.
Band conditions were getting good to Europe at that time.
In the last 30 minutes I picked up WA and OR. All this on
40 Metres!
72 de Arn, Lebanon, ME
---------
K4BAI:
Club Name: South East Contest Club
COMMERCIAL EQUIPMENT. FT1000MP, 5 watts output, TH6DXX,
zepp, dipole, inverted vee.

Contest may run too long or maybe should start an hour earlier.
Was unable to find a new QSO after 0244Z until after 0300Z, so went
QRT. Ealier start time would give us more short skip. Long skip
makes QRP QSOs pretty difficult.
de John, Columbus, GA
----------
KE0G:
QRP - 5 watts, CW
Elecraft K-1
80 M quadrant up 50' fed with Matchbox tuner
de Dan, Rochester, MN
----------

Thanks for running this contest!
de Bill, Hollis, NH

Thank to all who pulled me through the qrn and qrm.

and end fed Hertz on 80.

W5ACM:
Rig = Elecraft KX-1 (kit), Power = 3W
One hundred miles makes all the difference!
Earlier in the week, those of us in Houston were watching a
Category 5 Hurricane - Rita, charging directly across the
Gulf of Mexico toward Texas. I had all of my antennas down
in anticipation of the eventual landfall, and working this
QRP event, was long forgotten. You've seen the results of
this QRO storm on the news. As Rita passed 100 miles to
the east, it shook dead wood out of my trees, but that's
about all it did to SW Houston. I managed to get all of
my antennas from 40M through 13cm back in the air on
Sunday - just in time for the Sprint!
de Andy, Houston, TX
-----------
AL7FS/W0:
Rig: Elecraft K2, at 5W.
I was operating from QTH of my Mom, KJGL, Jeanette, in
Atlantic, Iowa. Antenna was an 80/40 inverted V up 30 feet
in the middle and draped over the trees.
73, Jim, AL7FS
-----------
KN1H:
Homebrew 6-band VXO TX @ 900mw output
Homebrew 7-band superhet receiver
380' end-fed wire
Its always a treat to dust off the homebrew stuff and work some
old friends.
Regards, John, Charlestown, NH
------------
W5ESE:
Rig used was a Ten-Tec TKIT 1320 at 3 Watts, and a
300' Horizontal Loop. I was still pooped from the
Texas QSO Party.
Thanks for sponsoring the sprint, and look forward to
the spring sprint.
