Two-Meter Classic Sprint – July results

      No Comments on Two-Meter Classic Sprint – July results

The Two-Meter Classic Sprint continued with the July edition held on July 3, 2021, lasting 30 minutes from 1300z to 1330z. Participation for the July sprint was up from June, with 11 submitted score summaries. Several familiar calls from the June sprint returned this month, and several new calls joined in the fun. Submitted score summaries came from the states of Indiana, Minnesota, Illinois, Maryland, Wisconsin, and Kentucky. Stations entered in the base category (both high power and low power), as well as the rover category (low power only). Great to see the activity!

There are a few new items to add to the July sprint results. Starting with the July sprint, the score report will include two sections – a score summary for participants in that month’s sprint, and a score report for year-to-date scores. The next new addition is a “soapbox comment” section. Participants are encouraged to include their “soapbox” comments with their score summaries. “Soapbox” comments typically include such things as descriptions of rig(s) used, antennas used, operating comments, etc.

A big thank you to all participants in this month’s sprint! There are five more sprints before year’s end, so if you haven’t participated yet, turn on the rig and join us for the August sprint, coming up August 7, 2021, at 1300z!

Soapbox Comments:

“Another quick half-hour but I still managed to traverse the four grids at my local grid corner (EN51, EN52, EN61 and EN62). Two fixed stations again but one is not a contester so I only got one QSO with him on SSB; the other station (who was one of the stations I worked in June) chased me through the grids, completing QSOs on SSB AND CW from each place where I stopped. We traded off CQing but were not able to catch the ear of any other stations despite the APRS map suggesting that there might have been some tropo enhancement to the SW. I was able to complete 9 total QSOs, 5 on SSB (one on 144.200 USB, 4 on 144.210 USB) and 4 on CW (all on 144.090).”  K9JK/R

“I worked guys from EN13 to EN46 to EN54.  It sure goes quick!” N0HJZ

“Had two on CW and one on SSB.” W0ZF

“Was on from EM78, alternately calling CQ and listening. Never heard anything…” WB4GZK/R
