K3WWP:
Once again, great DX conditions the first few days of April allowed completion of the challenge quickly as was done in March also. Took a couple days longer this month because of all the 1s which turned out unusually hard to find for some reason. Still a great challenge, thanks to Matt and Ton. Keep up the great work on that side of the pond for our NAQCC.

W9UX:
Enjoyed the April challenge.  Lots of ‘8’ and ‘0’ needed and they were the most difficult to get.  Thanks for another great challenge.  72, Terry

PA7PYR:
TRX Yaesu 817, Ant. Hy Endfed. Nice to participate, no contest and still a kind of competition. All with 5w or less. Tnx Matt and Ton
