NT9K Operated by: Bill

Too sick to play, but wanted to make 1 QSO and submit an entry for Dave's first SKS as Sprint Manager. I found Ed KG4W, using the club call on 14.050. Ed was armchair copy, as usual. Maybe next time, I'll be in better shape.
Until then, 73. Bill..

It was good to dive into the SKS! Gave the Blue Racer a good workout today. Stayed on 20M and ran the whole time. Need to start getting my stamina up for Sweepstakes coming up this fall. Cannot wait for the next SKS!!



K5ENA Operated by: John

Always enjoy our sprints and meeting old and new friends.

N1LU Operated by: Don

Great conditions for QRP tonight. Most reports came back to me 599. 20 meters was so good, I only got on 40 meters for a little while and never made it to 80.



NV9X Operated by: Jim

Thanks for K9SKC on 2 bands. That helps me a lot. Good sprint. Good participation and the bands seemed good here. Thanks SKCC.




KC4FLT Operated by: Carl

Got started late, but wow what fun! Got #8T and k9skc!!
Thanks again - glad to be back even for 1/2 hour!
73 to all!

N8AAI Operated by: Brandon

TNX FER CALL, 73



NTA Operated by: John

Pretty good conditions. Expected a little more activity on 20m, but maybe I was in a hole. Most of my Q's were on 40m - didn't even try 80m. Thanks to Rocky, NE7D for the trifecta - 10, 15, and 20m. K3/100, vertical & dipole, and especially the K2RFP SKS logger.



WIS Operated by: Kieth

Fun to work the sprint again after getting the shack back together after FD. Thanks to everyone again that pulled out my tiny signal. Werner N8BB and Dick K2RFP had really nice signals on 40 meters. Worked 6 stations for and average of 908 miles per watt. 73 de Kieth wi0s 2048T



AD5VC Operated by: Dana

This was my first SKS in over a year. Worked several new members, which was nice. I found 20m moderately busy, and 40m was quite busy. I actually found there were more stations on 40m than I could work in the time alloted. Anyway, it was a lot of fun.



WA1VIL Operated by: Greg

First time I managed to work K9SKC on more than one band-makes a great sprint for me. Thanks for the "clean sweep" from AF2Z, I think that is the first time I worked a station on three bands. Thanks to all for the contacts and 73!



N5KIP Operated by: Dick

Enjoyed the sprint. The bands seem to be improving. Even managed to take a brief break, turn down the power, and work the two qrp fox hunt stations on 20 meters. 73, Dick N5KIP



WA1LWS Operated by: Hans

20 and 40 meters were hopping in Maryland!



KLUW Operated by: Russ

QRN was very low tonite which was good because the signals on 20m were very weak. 40 meters was great. I hope everyone had a good time like I did.



WA5VQM Operated by: Mark

Slow start but things picked up as the west began to come in later in the sprint. Had fun using the T-4XB / R-4A Drake twins and the J-38. Fun to work Gordon N6WK, and was he loud! Thanks to all and see ya' next time. 73, Mark




K8JD Operated by: John

First weekday sprint I have done in a long time !



VE3AKV Operated by: Bob

Hello to all...

My thanks to all those who put up with my tiny 950mW signal and my fist. I was on a K1 cranked down to a needles width below 1w into a doublet at 50ft. The bug was a 1932 Lightning that I recently rebuilt mechanically. The re-painting, that's a "winter job" ;)

I enjoyed it tonight, even with the static crashes and a simply noisy band. I also stayed on 7.112 for the entire contest.

72 de VE3AKV/QRPp

1932 Vibroplex Lightning was the bug in use tonight...



N9AKF Operated by: Bart

I heard a lot of activity on 20m, but signals wer weak with qsb so I went to 40m and stayed there. 40m also started out weak, but signal strength improved as time went on. I made 6 contacts including K9SKC, Ed, 2416T. I also added two new numbers to my Tribune list. It was a good evening. 73, Bart



WA1AR Operated by: Alan

Tonight I had a diffrent plan, I only used S&P and got 18 total with 16 mults. Decided to try and follow KG4W's band plan. Did not hear a thing on 10 or 15. Finaly got him about 20 min. into it on 20 meters. Got 9 on 20 and mostly calls I recoginized. The band was good. At the half point I went to 40 and got 5 in a half hour. On to 80 and got 4 in 20 minuits. Spent the last 10 minuits looking for anything on 160, only heard two tuner uppers. I heard a lot of others in QSO but kept moving looking for the CQs. Big gun of the night on 20M, Bert W5ZR as usual, must be all that salt water or something down there or the 10KW amp hidden in the garage.

Alan



K4JPN Operated by: Steve

Cndx were pretty good on 40M and picked up a few extra states on 20M. Nothing heard on 80M. 73, Steve K4JPN



W1EJ Operated by: Ed

Worked S&P on 20M up to about 14058 then a regular QSO broke out with a non-member, Gene W5GXV in TX, for over twenty minutes. After that 40M for the rest. Spent the last ten minutes trying for K9SKC on 7056 but he never heard me or others were stronger. It was all good, two hours of fun.



K4ZGB/1 Operated by: Tom

Portable from Bar Harbor, Me. Got the vertical up and going 1 hour before SKS.
Will be here for IOTA this weekend but looks like wx is not going to be so good.



N8ZYA Operated by: John

Great fun...nothing like the sound of a straight key!
I got in half hour late but still worked a few with my QRP set and indoor antenna. Looking forward to the next one.



K9SKC Operated by: Ed

Was much fun operating with the club call K9SKC. Never made it to 80 or 160 & zero qsos on 10 or 15. Had 28 qsos on 20 in 49mins & 31 qsos on 40 in 60 mins.
Was planning to do better but lost little bits of time here & there.
All except 2 qsos were with club members. Ran with 500watts in this SKS. Tnx for the calls & hope all had fun & if you get the chance to use K9SKC, take it it's a blast.



NLT Operated by: John

Fun stuff. Poor conditions here but could tell 40 mtrs was busy. Tired 10 and 15 but of course no luck.
Found Ed, K9SKC twice. Thanks, Ed.
John




K4BAI Operated by: John

FT1000MP, 100W, TH6DXX fixed NW, zepp, dipole. 20M was good to the midwest and west coast, but weak to most of the east coast. Ed, KG4W, was very strong from VA at the start, but skip soon dropped his signals down. Nice to work WL7WH on 20M. 40M seemed much beter and my rate was about twice the 20M rate. Signals were strong from TX to New England. Best DX was VE3KQN and AC7T in WA right at the end. Thanks for all the QSOs. Hope to work you all again next time. 73, John.



WA2JSG Operated by: Curt

Long day for me at the salt-mines.... just couldn't finish the sprint.
I'll be more awake next time.




N9FC Operated by: John

W5ZR Operated by: Bert

Conditions were very poor again. Thanks to all the members who worked me; and a specail thank-you to the ones who worked me on more than one band. I have included a picture of the SKCC DX-Travanza 2nd place plaque for those who may not have seen it yet. This is a first class trophy...thanks SKCC! 73 Bert

KL7GLL Operated by: Gene

All I can say is "WOW" I never heard the bands so full of SKCC signals. Lots of new numbers. 20, 40 and 80 were hopping. Maybe we can spread out some as the QRM was fierce at times around the regular SKCC freqs.



K9PL Operated by: Philip

Much activity, much fun.



K9ZMD/6 Operated by: Gary

Some minor improvement to my Hasty & Poor antenna plus significant improvement in band conditions equaled two hours of fun for me. Hope everyone else enjoyed themselves, too.

I barely heard the first few "CQ SKS" calls beeping across the room from my headset, reminding me that I'd totally forgotten about the SKS this evening. Just luck that I'd left the rig turned on!

Lately, I've been alternating between a Navy Flameproof & a Junker for the SKCC events. I'm puzzled about the way two keys can have such different "feel" from one another, yet both seem so sweet to use. Give me another 30 years and I'll decide which one I like best. 73

Gary, K9ZMD/6



KIVK Operated by: Joe

This was an enjoyable SKS worked lots of new calls this time. 20 Meters stayed open the whole time.



KCEEP Operated by: Tori

Conditions here horrible with storm activity South of the shack but at least I found one contact prior to having to leave to do net control for my radio club net. Better luck next time!



N5LUL Operated by: Brad

Wow! If ALL events went this way... things would really be great! Each contact brought in a new section. 11 of my 12 contacts were "T's" or "C's"... and caught K9SKC also. Was running a Yaesu FT-920 with a Winslow key on the 20M station, and a Yaesu FT-857D with the Vibroplex "Know Code" as my 40M rig. This is one of the best groups I've been involved with. Active and fun. Really enjoy the sprints. Will be back next month!




W3RT Operated by: Red

Had a good time in this month's Sprint. Lot's of signals out there tonite.

Ran the '940 at 50 watts to the sloper at 25 feet, and used the Speed-X straight key for most of the QSO's, and got the Annie to do some contacts also.

Thanks to all that I was able to work.

W6UT Operated by: Dennis

Didn't get to work the entire Sprint as son came by. Managed a few on 20M & 2 on 40M. Used 1917 Vibro Nickel plated Racer.



NE7D Operated by: Rock

Always fun when I can get in on an SKS. Started on 10M, heard and worked only N0TA -- went to 15M, heard and worked only N0TA. Tnx, John -- and we repeated once more on 20M! Conditions were not that great in the Pacific NW this time, but had fun nevertheless. Should have stayed on 20, only made 5 Q's on 40. Gordon N6WK was loud on 20 and Bert W5ZR was loud on both 20 and 40. Lost the final 15 minutes to a non-SKS call, but always glad to take time to chat up SKCC with a newcomer. Glad to give out OR to the gang and mni tnx to Don WA1BXY for the elusive RI that I've been needing for SKCC WAS. Great group!

Only a few minutes spent on this month's SKS. I was getting ready to be the fox in the qrp foxhunt.



N6WK Operated by: Gordon

Great Sprint. Signals were very strong so i stayed on 20 meters the whole time.



K6FFY Operated by: Nick

The QSB was challenging, but I always enjoy working our sprints.



WL7WH Operated by: Bob

Started out slow and weak signals. Last hour the band went down. Had to use amp for people to hear me! Great fun as always.



K8KFJ Operated by: Gary

A short 40m appearance with the new IC7000 in order to keep WV on the map. Condx sounded quite good.

KQ1P Operated by: John

Finally, 20 M was reliable for the whole sprint and I was able to work the west coast- thank you Gordon N6WK. I used battery power and a vertical from the porch (in the rain). K4ZGB/1- I hope you enjoy your stay in Maine, sorry for the wet summer, it is setting new records. Great fun again and 73 until next time.



WA9VEE Operated by: Wayne

Nice activity, nice conditions, even a QSO on 80! Timing was good.. one day before the geomagnetic storm.



KA1XC Operated by: John

20M was hopping! What a nice change...good sigs, lots of activity, spent an hour there. Worked K9SKC 2X. Real nice way to end the day; beginning of day really sucked with car breaking down on the way to work and needing a tow to the shop. Tnx all, 73, John



NR9B Operated by: Bill

Thanks to all who particpated in the July weekday SKS. 20 meters kept me fully occupied until about 0130. Was just getting a good start on 40 meters when the sprint came to an end.



AF2Z Operated by: Drew

There was a little more activity on 20m than I am used to hearing in the evening sprints; usually it folds pretty quickly. Signals were somewhat wild though, booming in then dropping out. Got a handful of ME and MA contacts, including three bands with Greg WA1VIL, and Tom K4ZGB on vacation in ME, on 20 and 40. Heard Gordon N6WK on 20 but never got a chance. DX for me this time was Russ K0LUW in NE. Don WA1BXY-- Sri, OM I guess I didn't hear you on 20m; I was kind of lazy this sprint for some reason. Rig: Elecraft K3 at 12 watts; 100' x 30' endfed wire antenna; Junker straight key.




AC7T Operated by: Doug

Good conditions here, and lots of activity. 14 QSOs on 20, 4 on 40. I was lucky enough to work K9SKC for the first time during a sprint. Thanks to all the friendly ops with good fists for making this another fun event. See you next month. 73.
