2016 April

APRIL 2016 SSB SPRINT

FINAL RESULTS

Continued participation makes the NA SSB Sprint contest one of the most exciting and fun operating events.  The April 1, 2016 event resulted in another good turnout.  We continue to receive much support and many appreciative e-mails.  The final results for April 1, 2016 event are listed below.  Door prizes for this event were drawn and sent out back in May.

As it turned out no one was able to win a WAS shirt this time.  K9PG operating low power came the closest with 48, while W4OC and N1LN wound up with 47.  Six stations worked 46.  Who will achieve WAS in the October 2016 event?

We also have a new high power winner.  After several recent close 2nd place finishes, K0EU emerged with the top score.  With his 12 more QSOs and 1 more multiplier, Randy (aka Ken) got past KW8N (who finished 2nd) ending Bob’s streak of seven straight 1st place finishes.  The low power winner is Paul K9PG (who also finished 3rd overall), with Jay N4OX following close behind in 2nd.  Typically a high power contester, Dave K8CC, cranked down the power and won the QRP category.

Four new s/p/c records were set during the April 2016 event.  KM9R NV-low power, NW8U WV-low power, VO2AC LB-low power and K8CC MI-QRP.  Check out the records page for details.

Many newer Sprinters continue to increase their Sprint operating skills and their resulting scores with each SSB Sprint event.

There were lots of other good scores, we will let those numbers listed below tell the rest of the story.

 

We have drawn for the Door Prizes and the ICOM NA SSB Sprint T-Shirts and these have been distributed to the recipients!
