NAQCC mW Sprint and VA2SG

Was held last week; and for some reason unbeknown to me, I missed it! I didn't see any announcements for it on the QRP e-mail reflectors that I remember. And for some reason, I have also stopped getting NAQCC newsletters and other e-mails. But I did find this on the Web:

If you've never QRP sprinted before, this video will give you a very good idea of what goes on. It's nice to see a QRP Kits PFR-3 in action. And I'm guessing that the paddles are the Black Widow paddles offered by Jerry W5JH.

Nice set up you have there, Jean-Pierre!

I'm seeing 72 more and more lately instead of 73. What does it mean?

Essentially, the "72" is exchanged between two QRP operators at the conclusion of a QSO.

It means, basically, "Wishing you good QRP" and was originated by Oleg Borodin of Russian QRP fame.
