NCC/MRRC Team Makes Top Ten in August NAQP
Conditions were excellent for the August, 2018 North American QSO Party CW and the scores submitted by the participants clearly reflected this fact. Winner AA3B managed over 1,300 contacts and 221 mults to produce a score of 287,742 points. As this is just a 10 hour contest, AA3B averaged 130 Q’s an hour! This high level of activity is the major reason why these twice-yearly contests have become so popular.
The North Coast Contesters and their friends from the neighboring Mad River Contest Club managed to collect 24 ops to put together six teams to compete with the other 90-some teams from around the country and Canada. Our NCC/MRRC Team 1, consisting of NA8V, K1LT, W8CAR, K3UA and K8GT managed an 8th place finish against really fierce competition from teams from the Northern California Contest Club, the Contest Club Ontario and the Society of Midwest Contesters.
Other NCC/MRRC teams placed 23rd, 31st, 49th, 66th and 82nd. Nice job, guys.
Again leading the pack with the top score was Michigan-based NA8V, who managed 973 contacts and 195 mults. W1NN produced the second highest score for the club with 845/186.
