Nice turnout for the Sprint this month, great fun. I'm glad
to see the
participation growing, its a fun little Sprint, vy easy to
participate in, and a
good way to contact other members for fun and
awards. I see Chuck Adams K7QO
participated this month, great to have you
in the hunt. I believe that he
mentioned on his reflector that he was
using a Pig Rig. Way to go Chuck!
Hope to see all again next
Back to the bench,
Winter's too valuable to waste.
I love this radio stuff !

Subject: [4sqrp] January SSS Results
| Well, in my opinion, the
January Second Sunday Sprint was a success.
| There were 10 entries,
compared to 3 in November and only 2 in December.
| Marshall W0OTM and
Terry WA0ITP led the pack with 8 QSOs each.
| Impressive to me was the span
of states that participated - three from
| out West (AZ, CA, and OR) and
one from the East (NJ), along with the
| usual Midwest suspects. Here are
| Call Name QTH 4SQRP # QSOs
| W0OTM Marshall Ottumwa,
IA 310 8
| WA0ITP Terry Ottumwa, IA 38 8
| K7QO Chuck Peoria, AZ 631
| KV6Z Bill Claremore, OK 520 6
| W2SH Charles Millington, NJ 85
| KF7WNS Gary Bandon, OR 687 5
| KB5FCF Joel Edmond, OK 90 4
AC0BQ Johnny Lebo, KS 162 3
| AA5CO Bruce Tulsa, OK 664 2
| WB6HVH John
Visalia, CA 149 1
| The cumulative leader for the year (since
November) is Terry WA0ITP with
| 11 QSOs, closely followed by Marshall
W0OTM with 8 (must be the Iowa
| soil-hi). After the April SSS (about the
halfway point), I'll post
| everyone's cumulative score.
| If you
find any mistakes, please let me know.
| Gary –
| John, lots of fun! My first time out on the SSS. Total= 5 QSO's.
| came back to me, but I'm plagued by a noise that comes and goes
| inopertune times. See everyone next month.
| Bill – KV6Z:
The QRN was bad, but the SSB QRM was brutal. I had to ask for fills on
| A real heartbreaker was the broken QSO with Gary
(KF7WNS). It took
| several attempts to get his call (this guy has real
patience!) but I
| never quite got his 4S number.
| I listened as hard
as I could and used earphones, but no cigar. And he
| would have been #48
for my W25 award. Bummer. | radio operator
here>. On a lighter note, I haven't had this much fun
| since the last
SSS and I'd like to thank the organizers of this event
| for all the work
they do. C U next time.

| Chuck – K7QO:
Was just testing the new rig. I did not know that I was
