November 2017 SSB Sprint Final Results

The November 2017 SSB Sprint had a variety of conditions and participants attempted to make the best use of these conditions from their various locations.  Bill, KH7XS, back in full operation with a great station on the big island in Hawaii used his 20 meter opening to the US at that time of day coupled with his semi-DX status to take first place in the High Power category.  Bill made 202 of his 285 QSOs on 20 meters.  Logically at that time of day, the rest were on 40 meters as he never went to 75 meters.  Conversely, KW8N finished in 2nd and had the second highest QSO total, but only was able to muster 13 QSOs on 20 meters.  He made most of his on 40 meters (166) and then dug 63 QSOs out of the static crashes on 75 meters while using SO2R and making 59 band changes.  Those were the highest QSO totals on those two bands.  Scott, KA9FOX, used his contest high 50 multipliers (tied with KH7XS) and 3rd highest QSO total to grab the 3rd spot.  Scott found a short-skip opening on 20 meters and used it to make 47 QSOs on that band while picking up a couple of rarer multipliers.   Mitch, K7RL, combined his 49 mults with 27 band changes and good productivity on 40 meters to finish 4th in the high power category.  W9RE took 5th place.

K9PG, for the 4th time in a row, was #1 in the low power category, squeaking past N4OX who finished closely behind for 2nd place low power.  Jay has consistently been right on Paul’s tail in the low power category.  WD9CIR, N8VW and K6GHA finished 3rd, 4th and 5th in low power.

K6MR continues his dominance in the QRP category with his 3rd consecutive first place QRP score.

In the Team Competition, the SMC #1 TEAM grabbed the top score due largely in part to all of their team members finishing in the overall Top Ten within their power categories.  The MRRC/NCC HI-LOW POWER Team finished in 2nd and the ARIZONA OUTLAWS CONTEST CLUB took 3rd.

Special recognition to the 100% accurate logging done by N1LN with 160 QSOs, W0BH with 142 QSOs and N6ZFO with 132 QSOs!

Next we will be drawing for the Door Prizes and the ICOM NA SSB Sprint T-Shirts and will distribute those to the recipients!
