September 2019 Sprint Results
K3LR made the top ten HP list and K3UA and W8WTS made the top ten LP list in the September running of the biannual NA Sprint contest. Tim’s score placed him in 9th position among some of the hottest CW ops in the country. K3UA made 5th in LP followed by W8WTS in 6th place. Good job everyone!
Conditions were anything but good this time out, with 80 noisy and long. Participation was also way down owing to the invasion of the weekend by the CWO contest. We sure would like to see this practice discontinued by our CW ops friends so we can all participate in both events.
NCC and friends fielded three teams this time: the Code Guys (K4RO, N2NT, K3LR, K5ZD and K3UA), Mad River (K9NW, KW8N, K8MR, NA8V, and W8WTS), and North Coast (W1NN, NS2N, NW2K, and WW3S). The Code Guys came in second (!), while Mad River placed fourth, very good showings indeed. The North Coast guys struggled to come in 16th. Having only four members and W1NN losing his 80M antenna and missing the entire last hour didn’t help this team.
