|2||K1WHS||Dave Olean||>1-5 Watts||A1||16||10||0||17||11900||I missed a few contacts. I think I hear better than I get out with the 5 watts. Best contact was KF7MD (CO). We almost worked at 0150 UT, but got lost in QSB. We had a great contact at 0302. Things got pretty slow the last hour. Only 2 stations worked. The sprint sure was fun.|
|3||WB8YYY||Curt||>1-5 Watts||A1||11||5||0||13||5915||When 2 others joined calling on my run frequency at the beginning, about 1.7 kHz up from the middle, I knew propagation was not ideal. I heard well using my short Beverage, except that several called way off zero beat. Still a fun time at the rig.|
|4||W2SH||Charles Moizeau||>1-5 Watts||A1||11||5||0||13||5915||Condx were well below my expectations. Furthest distance achieved from NJ was a bit less than 1,100 miles for a very strained QSO with WA5BDU in AR. 270' cf sloping dipole, avg. height 45'; inverted L, 86' up & 68' out. Rig: Tentec Argo 6.|

|7||WD8RIF||W. Eric McFadden||>1-5 Watts||A1||8||6||0||11||4004||Very tough band conditions. Many of the stations I worked were at "ESP" signal strength.|
|8||VE3DQN||Don||>1-5 Watts||A1||6||3||0||8||2016||After an hour noise level increased, and I didn't hear any new calls. So called it an evening. Fun as usual.|

|11||AA5TB||Steve||>1-5 Watts||A1||2||2||0||4||392||I was using my usual 1/8 wave inverted-L. Just not much QRP activity in my part of the country on 160 m. But I had fun.|
