What a great challenge. And CHALLENGE it was with only being
allowed to take one letter from each call. With our different USA challenge rules of 2 letters per each letter in a call, I finished the USA challenge in just a few days despite the huge number (118) of letters. It took me 19 days to finish the EU challenge with just 20 letters. It was also tricky juggling calls around to fit. Some calls I worked could be used for 3 or 4 different letters and after using them for one letter, then I’d have to move them to another letter when I got another call with the same letter. It’s about as tricky to explain as it was to do it. HI Also conditions to EU were not all that great this month, although they were better than the last half of July. Looking forward now to the Oct/Nov EU challenge. Great work in putting the EU challenges together Ton and Matt. Congrats and thanks from NAQCC VP John K3WWP (#0002).

A great challenge. After seeing it mentioned in the NAQCC Newsletter wanted to give it a try.  Was fun and challenging.  Good luck with upcoming challenges.  72, Terry  W9UX  #0033

    Come on EU Chapter members. Ton and Matt put a lot of work into these challenges, and you can thank them by participating in them. Even if you can’t get all the letters and numbers, send in what you do have. Ton and Matt will appreciate it, and as NAQCC VP, I will also. Thanks.
