Some of the comments received:

My first Fall 6 Meter Sprint.  To sum it up in three words:
No, No, Yes

No Propagation, No Participation, Yes...LOTS of fun.

After the nice openings to South America the last few days was hoping for
better propagation.  I was also hoping to work a few more of the "locals"
if the band was not open.  I know there are more than 12 active 6m ops in
Central and South Florida. 
Thanks to the folks that did give me a call. 73 Paul AJ4Y EL97bx

Xmitter died. Where were all the east coast big time radio

Any reason to get on the air is good!  This is my first "Fall Sprint".
Am looking forward to the two meter Sprint Monday!  My thanks to those
who are keeping the Sprint tradition alive. Dave Bostedor Jr.  N8NQS

wowee, but at least I was on and am glad to see fall activity, Frank, W2FCA

Where was everyone. With the listing in QST I thought there would be
a lot more activity, even if there was not a 6m opening. Oh Well. I'll be
working the 2m contest Monday night. joel   K1QM   Concord, MA

Just did not hear many stations in the Sprint from my particular location.
I know there were others who did much better.  My congrats to them.  I felt
it important  for me to make some QSOs to show our participation
in the Sprint (and our continued use of VHF frequencies). My thanks to all
who picked up the sponsorship of the various Sprints after having been
dropped by the ARRL.  applaud you as does many other VHF/UHF enthusiasts.

Participation was very disappointing. I Roved in three grids but only
succeeded in making contacts while in two of them. I almost didn't activate
the second grid to obtain Rover status. Norm, N2GKM
