A quick sprint

I was very time limited this evening, so I only spent a few minutes on the NAQCC cw sprint for January. I worked AA7VW Vern in Oregon, and KD3CA Don in Pennsylvania. My last two sprints had quite a few more contacts, but I also worked all two hours then. Work ran long, and then after a late dinner I found myself in the shack working on two fixit projects that I didn’t want to put off another day! I turned on the KX3 and listened to the melody of cw while soldering a new connector on a mic and fixing a fussy (but new) power supply. If you’re looking for a fun little contest, I’d recommend trying the NAQCC monthly sprints. Even if you’re not a member, you’re always welcome to join in.
