km's. Close to that direction was Don VE2DFO at 719 km's. Northwest
represented by farthest to Bill VE3CRU/R FN04. West best distance was Ken KU8Y

and south KO4YC FM17. No one from

Best Contact was k8TQk...203 miels. Not bad for 10 watts.
N1JEZ   Single Op HP   5702017-09-27 05:13:46
Decent activity! Best West - EN92. South - FM09. East - FN54. North - FN25.
Couldn't find anyone in FN35, FN33, FN23, FN24, FN21. I did work my own grid
thanks to KV1J.

KA2LIM   Single Op HP   8502017-09-27 06:48:27
Had fun working from the home station (which is in a hole). Only one station
that I could not pull out of the QRN & QSB. A few SSB contacts, mostly CW.
FN54 to the NE and EN92 to the W and FM09 to the SW. some close in grids not
found or worked to include my own grid. Thanks to all who got on, hope you had
KØBAK/R   Rover LP   1,1002017-09-27 08:23:38
Best 222 sprint so far from my perspective. Activity is always a letdown
*relative* to the previous week's 2m sprint, but I thought it was pretty good
considering the band, and that a couple area super stations were either not on
or had limited operating time. Activated 4 grids: FN20, FN10, FM19, FM29.
Thanks to the following stations who got me in all 4 grids: K1RZ, KB1JEY, N2NT,
W2SJ, W2TAG. Made contacts in 8 unique grids; thanks to W8ZN and KO4YC for my
only FM09 and FM17 contacts. Shout-out to KB3MTW, for being enthusiastic and
working hard to get all the contacts she could with her modest station.
VE7HR   Single Op LP   12017-09-27 09:24:11
Heard several stations in CN87 but could not complete. Great motivation to
improve station. Larger antenna on order along with higher antenna mounting in
the works.
N6ZE/6   Single Op LP   1612017-09-27 15:10:23
Beautiful warm evening for the FALL2017's 222 MHz SPRINT! Clear, visibility
unlimited, nil wind, temperature: high 60s. Actually had a score slightly
higher than for the two meter SPRINT last week. Not much activity to South, but
worked several stations in DM06, CM97, CM98. Best DX was WA6IKE (593.4 km)
in CM98, just to North of Auburn, CA. Had QSOs with ~~ 3 DM04ne stations who
had checked-in to Local ACS/RACES 135 cm net; Rig: FT736, 100 watt TE Systems
Brick, & M>2 7 element yagi at 2340 ft above Sea Level in Santa Monica
VE3CRU/R   Rover LP   3242017-09-27 15:11:32
This contest ran slow. Only VE3DS and VE3ZV were active as base stations in VE3
and I was the only rover. Every qso was a mult and that was great to see. QSB
got in the way after the first hour. Best odx south-west was K8TQK 651 km, to
east was K1TEO 562 km followed by K1RZ 546 km nd W8ZN 504 km.. To the west
was K8DIO 324 km. I struggled repeatedly to try working W2SJ, K3MD and AA2UK,
no cigar, likewise KA2LIM. Next time !

Grids worked in order:
FN04xa - FM19, FN03, FM09, FN22, FN31, EM89, FN13, EN92, EN91
FN03nx - EN91, FN03, FN13, FN22, EN92, FN20, FN31, FN10, FN11

Power was 80W to 16 elmt K1FO @ 12'.

Many thanks to the sponsor and team, and to all worked hard to work the Sprint
and me, much appreciated. Was fun.


K8DIO   Single Op LP   1102017-09-27 16:21:46
Didn't realize I had the power cut back on the transverter so instead of 20
watts I was running 10 watts for most of the contest! Conditions, in northern
Ohio were below normal. Still had a good time. Worked Jeff, TEO with 10
WW7D/R   Rover LP   7952017-09-27 17:00:07
Roved the CN86/CN87/CN96/CN97 intersection in the foothills NW of Mt. Rainier.
Turnout was pretty good, although not many grids were lit. The 53 QSOs were
with 16 unique call signs. Grids worked: CN85, CN87, CN88, and CN89.

The sprint gave me the chance to try out an Artcraft AEXVRTR222HP transverter.
It worked quite well. The transverter drove a TE Systems brick. A TYT-9800
(222 MHz version) was used, with a Mirage brick, for FM.
N2NT(N2NC)   Single Op HP   1,1002017-09-27 17:44:37
Good activity level. Highlight and best DX was a truly random QSO with K8TQK at
470 miles. No chat room use at all for that one.

N9LB   Single Op LP   352017-09-27 19:27:32
Best DX was Bob-K8TQK at 410 miles/660 Kilometers
WX3K   Single Op LP   2942017-09-27 19:28:27
Love the 222 Sprint !
K1TEO   Single Op HP   1,4252017-09-28 05:17:52
Was hopeful for good condx as the Hepburn forecast looked good. I noticed
stations within 200 miles were a little louder than normal but nothing out
further showed any enhancement. All in decent activity though several close by
grids were MIA.

Tnx to the sponsors and hope to Cu on 432 if I can find some time to work on
the feedline.

Broke away to chase 5T5OK on 40M CW but no joy there. Maybe cost me 2 QSO in
the sprint?? Oh well.
