AB4PP Operated by: Johnpaul

Bands noisy! Got on 40M and had a blast trying to work stations. Finally got some. QRP tonight was hard to be pulled out by others judging on the reports I got back from them. Try again in the next one. 72/73 de JP



AB8FJ Operated by: Ted

Ten-Tec Argonaut II at 900Mw to the end fed random wire. Key was my Bencher RJ-2. All contacts on 40 meters. Band was in great condition in Southwest Ohio this evening. Many thanks to those who heard my QRPp signal.



W6UT Operated by: Dennis

Conditions not to good for me tonight. Still enjoyed the Sprint.



WA1VIL Operated by: Greg

Fun as always! W6UT-thanks for pulling me out-coast to coast on 40 is "big DX" for me this time of day! Lots of stations around 7114-great to hear that part of the band come to life! 73 to all!



N1GKE Operated by: Myrton

That was cool ! I'm really staring to enjoy these sprints. Band conditions were nice for the sprint too ! Did some antenna work today and glad I did. It was funny because I was having my own little qrp pile-up before the sprint too.
Can't wait for the next WES though, I think those are the best, at least for this operator.
Very 73 to all I worked and didn't work. Look forward to the next sprint.

The force goes into the flow
If you pick up the beat
You can forget about the heat

More than just a flash
More than just a dotted line
More than just a dash"
- Marathon, by Rush

This month's SKS was a blast. It sure felt like a marathon! It began slow, but got pretty fast towards the end. I started on 20M and only worked 3 stations. Once I settled on 40M, things got pretty quick in a hurry. I pretty much worked solid stations from the moment I started calling CQ towards the end. Thanks to all who worked me, and I heard some weak ones in there. I was glad we stuck to it and got you into the log. The SKS is always a favorite event of mine and I look forward to it every month.

Keys used for the sprint: My 1962 Blue Racer, and my Hi-Mound HK-802.



W5ZR Operated by: Bert

I showed up for the last half hour.



WA1AR Operated by: Alan

Good sprint tonight, 20M was OK for a while. 40M was jam packed. Tried 80M for about 10 Min and got nothing everyone was on 40M. 40M was long I worked CA and WA twice, not bad from MA See you all next months.

AB1BW Operated by: George

Another fun sprint. Conditions not that good for this one. Had lots of noise but was able to pull out a few contacts never the less. Tnx, Eric, for the club call for my first contact. See you next month. 73, George



WA5VQM Operated by: Mark

Great sprint! Lots of activity. Not bad for a summer month. Even managed some QSOs on 80. See ya'll next time. 73, Mark




WA1LWS Operated by: Hans

Was able to break 40 QSOs for the 1st time in an SKS.
Called on 40M the entire time.



NJL Operated by: Jim

I actually got to work most of the Sprint. I made 4 contacts on 20 M and the rest on 40 M. A couple with my Blue Racer and the rest with a side swiper.



NT9K Operated by: Bill

Nice sprint! Worked Max KH6ZM on 20 meters to start out. Max was a real 599 in FL. 20 meters was pretty good tonight. At the halfway point, I went to 40 meters. Seemed like most of the action was up above 7100. Got to work Jim N0JL, using my 7th homebrew key. That was pretty cool!

I heard lots of great fists. Worked several new members and lots of old friends. I managed to stay awake for the entire SKS this time. It's been a while since I was able to do that. Thanks to Eric KE5PWL for operating as K9SKC. Eric sounded great on his bug and had a nice signal into FL. Thanks for all the QSO's.
Until next time, 73. Bill NT9K..


I used this GHD sideswiper the most, but made a contact with each of my keys this time.



KLUW Operated by: Russ

Another great sprint - thanks guys for putting it on.



KI4GLH Operated by: Dave

Really enjoyed my first SKS using a Ten Tec Argonaut V running 5W into a G5RV at 40 feet. Keying via a J37. Many good signals but some couldn't hear me.



WSZV Operated by: Eldon

got to work about half of it. getting better.be back next month.



N4KGL Operated by: Greg

First time I tried 1 watt and I enjoyed working steady contacts on 20, 40 and 80. Rig was IC-703 and dipole antenna.



KI4OFH Operated by: Richard

My fist SKS. I had a great time. I look forward to many more.



NTA Operated by: John

20m was a bit disappointing, but 40m was HOT. Never got to 80m. First attempt at QRO - borrowed a 500w homebrew solid state amp. Running a K3, vertical, and K2RFP logging software.



K9PL Operated by: Philip

Much activity and great ham spirit displayed by all.

Speed-X 114-310 straight key for first half of the sprint and J-37 for second half.

J-37



W5ALT Operated by: Walt

Once again a fun time. Lots of signals on 40m and a couple on 20m at the start, but too much QRN to do anything on 80m. Hopefully the next time the QRN will be better and we can do something on 80m as well.




K2NPN Operated by: Phil

Good Evening, The bands were in tough shape but we still had fun.

KC4FLT Operated by: Carl

Set up outside and worked a couple of stations, they were not members but had a nice couple of qso's. New 703 plus -filter = no contesting.
So maybe next time. Thanks to those who work so hard to set this up. CW lives!



KL7GLL Operated by: Gene

Good activity on 20, 40, and 80 mtrs. Esp. nice to hear KH6AM, Max, pounding in from HI on 20 mtrs, although not able to break the pileup to work him. Tnx to Eric for K9SKC contact.



W9CC Operated by: Larry

QRN was bad but it was still fun! Thanks everybody.



N5LUL Operated by: Brad

This has been the best month yet!!! Spent the 1st hour on 20M and worked east coast stations. Then I0QM and F8ENY!!! What luck! Thanks guys! Next hour was spent on 40M... no DX, but all were sounding well. Used the both the Winslow and Vibroplex straight keys tonight. Will be back next month for the sprint... and looking forward to another weekend sprint. This is a great group to have on the air. Enjoy each and every contact. Brad- N5LUL




KIVK Operated by: Joe

It was a fun Sprint worked I0QM Bob and KH6ZM Max. Didn't get to work as many new members as last Sprint. 20 folded early & 40 was crowded. As usual lots of fun. SKCC has sure helped with the No sunspot blues. 73 Joe



K8KFJ Operated by: Gary

I wasn't able to put in a full effort but fun nevertheless. Happy to give out a few contacts to those who needed my SPC. Just stayed on 40m with the exception of working Max KH6ZM on 20 who had a great signal that I couldn't pass up. Thanks to all who participaed.

K9SKC Operated by: Eric

WOW, That was Fun. It was My first time being K9SKC I enjoyed every minute of it.



K9ZMD/6 Operated by: Gary

It was a rough evening in SoCal, but I still had fun. The low QSO rate had me checking outside to see if the antenna was still up there! 73

KKEX Operated by: Rick

Good conditions in the midwest, 20 meters held up for the first hour. Bob I0QM had a great signal...the 2nd hour on 40 meters and lots of stations to work. 73's



NE7D Operated by: Rock

Most of my Q's were in the first hour on 20M. Moved to 40, but very slow. At least picked up CA on 40, but only one station. Seems that the West Coast was not favored in this SKS -- nearly all contacts in the midwestern states for me this time, except for Max KH6ZM who always has a great signal here. Only one double-bander this time, Walt W5ALT. And always nice to work some new members; several 5000+ numbers tonite. Totally forgot to try the high end of 40 -- will remember that next time. Used my old novice key (Ameco Japanese ball-bearing straight key) and K2RFP Mini-Logger. Thanks to all for a fun 2 hours.

Many TNX to every OM who raised the volume to hear my 100 W Icom 706MKIIG through an homemade F3LG coupler and Levy antenna just 9m up!

KKI Operated by: Jack

Another nice sprint...a few on 20, one on 80 and the rest on 40. Ended up in the old novice portion and stayed there the rest of the event. Many nice fists out there...as always, a lot of fun! Used the Vizbug tonight. Thanks for being out there!



KA2KGP Operated by: Tom

Weak bands & high noise levels here in WNY, but a fun sprint anyway. Hope the bands are in better shape next SKS sprint. 73 all.

The XYL and I went to a summer concert featuring Big Shot, a Billy Joel tribute band.
We enjoyed the concert but we did not get home in time for me to play radio.

Until next time, 73.




W3RT Operated by: Red

Nice to be able to get some contacts on 20m using the C3SS at 25'. Most of the rest of the contacts were on 40 and 80 using the sloper at 22'. Used the Kenwood 940 at 85 watts, and the keys varied from the Flameproof (90 to Annie (5 and my new Sideswiper from NT9K- (5 (Nice key, Bill!)
Heard the CA stations, but only able to get Gordon, N6WK. All in all, a Fun Sprint! Hope to get the antenna farm a bit more presentable so's I can get more contacts in future sprints.



K1PUB Operated by: Chas

A few QSOs on 20M then moved to 40, which, although noisy, was pretty active. Also picked up a few on 80M. As usual, a fun event. The SKS debut for my new (to me) used OMNI VII, which I just picked up Monday evening. Thank you Eric for operating K9SKC.



AF2Z Operated by: Drew

20m was long from the get-go. Activity was sparse on all bands in the first hour. Second hour was better and really got rolling toward the close on 40 & 80. Revisited 20m in the final half hour-- nothing going on there except Max KH6ZM 579/559. I think this is first time I've worked Max outside of the January anniversary events, haha... Good to hear Walt WA9ZES again in his second(?) SKCC sprint. Rig: Elecraft K3 at 12-watts; 100' wire up 30'; Junker straight key.



WA9ZES Operated by: Walt

Started late - sent the wrong exchange on first contact - logging software wouldn't work - couldn't find paper log sheet and bands were not the greatest - BUT I still had fun!!



WA9VEE Operated by: Wayne

80M empty, 20M long and over quick, 40M main workhorse but QSB nagging all the time. Sorry for the 2 I couldn't pull out. Fun as usual.



N2JNZ Operated by: George

20 was no go ....... 40 great but long . didnt work any W3 , W2 or W4 but got Paul NG7Z in WA for a nice QRP catch !!! Nice crowd on 40 !! SKCC rules !!! TT Argosy 525D to a ZeroFive vertical for 40m . good Ol Annie bug !!




K2PAY Operated by: Jerry

Not an empressive score. My thanks to Dick, K2RFP and Stan, W2SCB for their help hanging the new Windom in the trees. If it were not for them I would still be using my old vertical. The contact with Max, KH6ZM proved that the new antenna was a success. Thank you Max for the new State.

This was my first sprint. Really enjoyed it. Although I only worked 6 contacts, it was great! Got the hang of it after the first hour. 2 hours went too fast. Nice to read a few comments from stations I worked. I will be back for more in the next one. Happy to be representing VT.



VA3TSK Operated by: Greg

Worked QRP portable from a rented cottage in Tobermory Ontario. Antenna was a vertical. Radio was IC-703 at 5W. Had difficulty making contacts due to poor antenna, though conditions seemed good. Fun as always!



KO4ZS Operated by: Paul

First time submitting scores! Ran on 20m for 50 minutes before the band went silent then I answered calls on 40m for 45 minutes and ran on 40m for the rest of the sprint. Used 5W on my IC-7000 to a 20m/40m fan dipole @ 55 feet using an AT&T straight key. I enjoyed the practice -- my CW improved as the sprint progressed. Thanks to all who participated and to those who organize and operate the club.



N9AKF Operated by: Bart

Conditions were pretty tough for QRP here. I could hear more stations than could hear me. I had a good time as always ans even worked K9SKC in LA.

N8BB Operated by: Werner

Had fun even with weak bands, very nice to hear F8ENY break thru on 40 meters with a good copy and the west coast guy's did their usually great job.
Not great but it was allot of fun. Werner N8BB



K5TJS Operated by: Allen

Great get together. I did not do that well but got HI and OR. Looking forward to the next one. Great bunch of guys who slow down for us slower ops.

W9IL Operated by: Lou

The QRN on 80 meters was terrible, due to thunderstorm activity in the middle part of the country. 20 and 40 meters were the best bands for me this time.



KB4QQJ Operated by: Randy

Fun SKS, Thanks Dave. I played the first hour at 1 watt on 40 meters with an old homebrew from a 1990 QST article. Switched up on keys using my favorite, the 1954 Blue Race, then the NT9K #8 Cootie and the Begali Spark. I figured that pretty well covered the "manually generated" requirement hi hi. Band was alive with cw!! Listened on 20 and it was alive too. Didn't event try 80. Stopped in at Richards house , KI4OFH, for his first SKS!! Congratulations Richard, well done!
Tried again for Gordon,N6WK, but just not going to happen QRPp this time. Nice 589 signal though.
Strongest signal was Jason, NX8E at 30 over. Booming into NC. Good to hear you all and I'll see you in the next one. I'm practicing for the next DX-Travaganza!!
