Unfortunately, the tropo that I enjoyed earlier in the day at my home station had moved too far south to help at my portable location during the Sprint. Nonetheless, I had fun and did surprisingly well for all the challenges. Just like the 222 Sprint the week before, I worked Maine station K1DY FN54 to the northeast (315 mi / 506 km) for a best DX, and W8ZN FM09 to the southwest (296 mi / 477 km). My roving sidekick Tom KC2SFU got on the air and provided the only contact with my home grid. He used CW to make the contact on a vertically polarized 2m Yagi. VE3CRU/R provided my only contacts with FN04 and FN03, and Long Island station N2GHR FN30 was my farthest contact in the other direction. After working 4 stations in the 10:00 hour, the winds had picked up to the point where they were battering the antenna system pretty badly on the exposed hilltop--the cold front was pushing into the area as forecast. So that, combined with the threat of rain, caused me to tear down early.
