Sprint Manager's Notes . . .

Quite a few more logs received this Sprint, conditions seemed pretty good,
even had a few on 10 meters this time around.

I am interested in hearing any and all comments that might increase the
participation in the Sprints.

You can e-mail your comments to me at;

Not many Fists out there to work.

K8CI
Very little participation
	
SP6JOE
Conditions not good
	
N2ED
Pretty Good Conditions, even worked a few Fists on 10M!
Hoping for a larger turn out of Fists!
	
W5ODS
Only had last 30 minutes to operate.
Lots of QRN in OK WITH STORMS IN AREA.
	
KC9EHQ
This was my first Sprint for FISTS, I think.
I haven't been all that active on HF since we moved into our house seven years ago,
but I am trying to remedy that.  The last time I was on the air was September 2012.
I am OK with CW, and can copy around 13 wpm.  Most stations in today's sprint were
going faster than I could copy, and the bandwidth around the calling frequency was
crowded.  Hopefully as time goes on, I will get better with this.
I definitely plan on taking part in the Summer Sprint and GYFWW.
My station today was an Elecraft K2/10 (ATU, AF, SSB, NB, 160M),
Idiom Press CMOS-4 keyer and SCAF-1 audio filter, using Bencher paddles.
Antenna was a G5RV Jr. in a V, up 22' at the apex.

N3RSD
Great Fun! Need More Sprints!
	
K5YQF	
Heard some really loud stations but didn't seem to be much activity -
maybe just bad propagation.  But fun as always and I did get to try using my
Vibroplex Delux some.  Hope it wasn't too bad.
	
WB0PYF
Good to hear everyone and thanks.
	
KJ0P
Very OM here but very new to CW. Thanks to FISTS for the foundation
and continuing inspiration.
	
W8NCK
(KB8KIK, operator), First Sprint worked in years. Bands were in good shape but crowded.
I rarely hear any Fists Ops on the usual Fists Freqs, except during contests.
	
WF4O
Probably not a winning score- but by mailing in my paperwork- my first contest is official.
The bands were poor, but I had a great (if nervous) time. Ed- tnx for your patience-
also patience form Riley and Pat too. I am enjoying CW and the Spring Sprint is one more
facet for me to explore and get involved in.
	
KG4UPO
This is my first log submission for a Fists Contest. I hope it is adequate and properly
done. If not, please let me know.
	
VE5BCS
I hope there are too many mistakes. I should be getting better at this. Thanks.
	
K8VFR
Don't know where the all Fist guys hide out at?
	
WB0B
The Keynote arrived just in time to remind me the Spring Sprint was an approaching event.
Have not participated in a couple of years. I am marking my calendar to make future
Sprints if possible.
