Your Call:

KA2KGP, Tom, 5w     fpqso=8 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=6 total=144
Lot's of QRM from QP & SST contests. Not many piggies heard squeelin' from the WNY pig pen. Only wollowed in the mud for 1 hr. Rig: IC-7000 at 5w. into G5RV up 25 ft. w/ old WWII German Junkers straight key. 73

KF7WNS, Gary, 5w     fpqso=4 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=4 spc=7 total=112
Contests going everywhere. 20m was in good shape 3 members there. 1 member on 40m. Didn't hear much from the pig pen tonight.

I got in a little late but had one QSO on 20M, and found the pig pen on 40M with a lot of SST contest QRM but did manage two QSO's there and another two QSO's on 80M. Thanks to: KF7WNS, AC2YD, KA2KGP, WB0CFF. CU next month. 72/73, Dan

As others have said, kinda crowded out by end of Washington Salmon Run followed by Slow Speed Test, but my thanks go to those who persevered with FP! 20m had no FP activity heard from here in NJ, 40m supplied all FP QSOs ... I rarely try run-mode, but ended up doing that this time because I didn't hear many others calling CQFP ... run-mode provided 3 out of 5 Qs; thank for the calls! After I heard K4BAI working SST (not QRP), I switched over to SST, too (still QRP, cuz that's all I've got!) ... and John was thoughtful enough to drop down to QRP to make our QSO count for both SST and FP ... sounded like extreme QSB! Rig here Softrock RXTX, 2 watts, Quisk software, 1/4-wave fan vertical, 32 radials. Thanks!!

This was my first chance to join the sprint in quite a while. I got in for a bit of the 80M action with KA0KGP being the first QSO. I had KB9W, KD8GBK and K9MZU also. 72 Carl

Ft-817 5W and 80 meter dipole. That was rough. Except for local QSOs in MD, Va and Pa, 80 was oinkless. I guess I do my best work in the dark cuz this wallow was not a memorable one. Can’t wait for DST to end so we have some chance on the low bands under the new hours.

K9QEW, Daryl, 5     fpqso=2 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=2 total=12
40 meter Operation only. Heavy QRM from other contests. Operated only 15 minutes. QSOs KA2KGP, AC2YD. 72/73s Stay Tuned, Daryl

K4BAI, JOHN,      fpqso=2 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=2 total=12
First hour was conflict with very busy CA QSO Party. Guess that will happen once a year. Second hour was even busier with the new SST slow speed test (20 WPM max). I guess that will be a conflict on 40M every month around 7040. Shouldn't affect 20 and 80M since frequencies are high enough that the SST doesn't (yet) reach that high. We need to use 7122 on 40M when the conflict occurs around 7030 to 7045 kHz. See you next month. 72, John, K4BAI.

AD0YM, Mike, 5 watts     fpqso=2 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=2 total=12
Heard nothing on 20 meters. Dropped down to 40 meters where I heard no oinks for most of the first hour. Got two of the three I heard, though QSB impacted the close of both so belated 72 es GL to both AC2YD and KA2KGP. The SST dominated 40 meters within minutes of the second hour. Good for them, I guess.

Hello to all ! Lotsa contest stations this evening both stateside and Asia. Worked KF7WNS, Gary rite at the beginning. Carefully monitored 20 mtrs for any other piggies. 73 to all !

KD8GBK, Ralph, 5w     fpqso=1 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=1 total=3
Hi gang, finally had a few minutes to work the "Run for the Bacon" tonight and pulled Carl out of the noise on 3.5MHz. I pounded away on 1.8MHz for awhile with no luck. QRM4 on all bands here at my QTH tonight. 73
