Power/Rig 5W/Multipig+ (#16)
Antenna: KT34/300' Loop
I was mainly in the FP "Run for the bacon," 
but picked up a few non FPs in the process.

will drop this contest, too.
de John, Vineland, NJ
-----------
W1PID:
Rigs DSW 40 and DSW 20 2W, Antenna Windom
RTTY was pretty rough on 40. Pretty much shut down the band.
Still made a few Qs there. 20 meters was active, but sigs were
on the weak side. I worked the first hour and had a blast.
Many thanks to all.
de Jim, Sanbornton, NH
------------
WB7AEI:
Station: HB 40M superhet receiver, 1W VFO
xmtr with 5W MOSFET amplifier, homebrew keyer, tuner, SWR
meter, power supply. Antenna WAS (i.e. taken down in the
dark after contest!) temporary end fed half wave, up 17 feet
at high point.

MUCH better conditions than typical for the past year(s)!
40M almost seemed normal, changing markedly over the course,
with low noise levels. It got to ESP at the end. Heard
twice as many as I worked. Tnx to AA1MY and several others
for real good ears! Big signals from K7TQ,W0NTA, K6XR. The
outdoor EFHWA was so great after being on an indoor DCTL for
the past 3 months!
72's, Phil, Kent, WA
-------------
KL7IKV:
All QSO's were on 14 mhz cw, using K2 at 5 watts, vertical and dipole
antennas. Not so hot but fun anyway! 
Tnx! 73, Lynn, Anchorage, AK 
-------------
W2BVH:
Rig: K2 @5W, 80m CF Zepp.
de Lenny, Cranford, NJ
-------------
W5ACM:
The antenna was a 3-band inverted "V" in the attic. The Elecraft KX-1
arrived in the mail on Thursday, March 18, as a kit. It was fully up and
running on Sunday afternoon, but it wasn't easy! Power output was low due
to minor problem, so I operated from the internal AA batteries and set the
power output level below 1 Watt. It worked VERY well, and I had a great
time on my first Sprint.
72 de Andy, Houston, TX
-------------
W0PWE/M
I had to take my daughter back to college on the evening of the sprint. I
put my 20M Manhattan SST in the car thinking I would make a few contacts on
the way home and then operate 40 for the last hour or so when I got home.
Well, it took longer at the college than I expected so 20M was about dead
and I never made it to 40M.
Station: 20M Manhattan SST at 1W and a Hamstick on a Honda Odyssey
de Jerry, Mobile in NE/IA
-------------
WA9PWP:
Rig: K-1 @ 3 Watts
de Paul, Stoughton, WI
-------------
W0CZ:
Elecraft K2 SN 1031 running 5 watts. 
Antenna on 20 meters CL-33 beam up 22 ft
Antenna on 40 meters Hy-Gain Hy-Tower 
I am not much of a contest operator but I liked this 
contest because the code speed was not too fast.
I tried PSK31 too but never found anyone in the
contest. The bands were poor the first hour but
were good the third and 4th hour when I got back on.
73, Ken, Fargo, ND
-------------
WG1Z:
Equipment - iCOM IC-775DSP / Spi-Ro D-68 Trap Dipole
Heard more stations soliciting for contact than the 5 I snagged.
Hope to do better snagging them next time.
de Joe, Woburn, MA
-------------

Many thanks for the excellent support for the Sprint from you all. Great to QSO all those Milliwatters with HB gear. Hope you all enjoyed it as I did.
