NAQCC April Sprint

54 degrees and clear
Tonight I had an opportunity to join the NAQCC CW sprint.  I've missed this activity for some time, usually being busy with other things at work and home.  I got about 45 minutes of operating, and made 7 QSO searching between 20 and 40 meters.  I guess the proper term is "Search and Pounce", but the word pounce is a little too heavey for 5 watts.  'Always nice to make contacts with familiar calls, and especially to have a QSO with John, K3WWP.  This reminded me to check John's long running CW diary at his website http://home.windstream.net/johnshan/home_ss_diary.html.  It was also great to make contact with blogger and QRP regular W2LJ.  Finally, I got to meet a fellow Connecticut QRPer, N2CN in Stamford.  Thanks to all for the contacts.
