Results of the January CW NAQP and February CW Sprint
NCC along with MRRC worked hard to promote activity for this popular event and we ended up with six teams (each team is five stations). 22 stations ended up submitting single op scores. Our top team ended up in 16th place, with the other teams coming in 24th, 53rd, 59th, 77th and 80th out of a total of 90 teams. Factors holding us back include the winter band conditions which really favor the far west, and the fact that several of our top ops were operating at the W2FU Multi-Two operation. And speaking of which, Jeff’s team (K0SM, K2TJ, N2ZN and NW2K) came in Number One with the tremendous score of 761,976 points (2,228 contacts and 342 multipliers). Well done, guys!
In contrast to the five-member NAQP teams, Sprint teams consist of 10 members. Thanks to the efforts of our CW Sprint whip K3LR, we were able to field two full Sprint teams and, amazingly, all 20 stations got on the air and submitted logs. MRRC/NCC East ended up in fourth place, just ahead of MRRC/NCC West in fifth place. Two teams in the Top Ten! The only other club to put two teams in the Top Ten was the Northern California Contest Club, whose teams placed second and ninth! Well done everyone!
Preliminary results of these two events (and lots more interesting contesting information) can be found on the National Contest Journal website www.ncjweb.com. Final results will be published in a future issue of the NCJ.
