NT9K Operated by: Bill, 1926T from FL

I probably shouldn't have tried to sprint after having surgery today, but couldn't resist
and worked a few QSO's anyway. I only played on 40 meters before I got tired and had to
quit. I heard a lot more members than I got to work. Maybe next month when I am better, I
can put more effort into it? Unfortunately, I never did hear Mark AD5WI.
Until next time, 73. Bill NT9K




KMC Operated by: Mike, 5241 from CO

First SKS and had a ball. hope to meet more SKCC members on the bands. TX for a great
time. 73 Mike (K0MC)



KC2EGL Operated by: Michael, 553T from PA

Things started out with a bang. The second hour was not so hot. A nice distraction from
a very stressful week. Thanks to all who worked me.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all.
CU during K3Y.

KC6ZZT Operated by: Joe, 3647 from CA

Nice to get to weekday sprint. Rarely have the chance as 0000Z-0200Z is only 4-6pm in CA,
and usu. never home from work that early. But this time I took the day off.




NG7Z Operated by: Paul, 802T from WA

Only had a few minutes to play due to volunteer duty at our local blood bank.



WA1AR Operated by: Alan, 4079T from MA

Got home late and started 40M late. Decided to just take it easy and S&P the big
signals. 40M was in a funny condition with real big QSB. Some signal went from 599 to
completely gone. I was tuning around and heard Dennis W6UT pop up and dissapear. So I
waited around to catch a wave. When he hit the top of the next wave I called. We were
able to finnish before he dissapeared again. Several station had similar rusults.

Alan



KLUW Operated by: Russ, 1702T from NE

Tough nite - lots of qrn and weak signal. Hurt my ears trying to copy stations. I don't
know if was my qth or the whole sprint in general. Always a lot of fun.




N6EV Operated by: Paul, 3358T from CA



Bunnell Camelback KOB - ca. 1878



WSZV Operated by: Eldon, 4999C from MO

busy and fast but did get in 6 qso's and caught AD5WI as a bonus. Was fun tonight

the shack



W9CC Operated by: Larry, 469T from IN

Thanks one and all. Merry Christmas and see you in the New Year for more fun!



K9PL Operated by: Philip, 258T from IL

Excellent conditions on 80-meters. Busy band.



W6UT Operated by: Dennis, 2417T from CA

40 was good until abt 0130. Switched to 80 and picked up few more. TU you AD5WI for
answering my CQ. Another fun time.



W4HDM Operated by: Damon, 3729T from GA

Ok I was all set to give this one 100 percent. I didn't account for the time change in the
sprint logger and started an hour late. Dooooh So I only got in an hour. Thanks to Mike
KA2FIR for letting me know. Still had fun. Started on 40m and made a few contacts ...lost
2 due to poor conditions. Sorry N5RDN and KI4TNA ... maybe next time. Called on 20m for a
bit without any luck. Moved to 80m and hit a couple before shutting down. TS-2000 at 100w
into my version of the Mystery Antenna at about 20 feet.

Merry Christmas to Everyone!

Damon W4HDM



K4ZGB Operated by: Tom, 796T from AL

Worked only 80 meters tonight. I have built a new ham shack and moved in today. Just did
not have time to get the coax to the other antennas run for tonight.



KD5MMM Operated by: Phil, 4209C from TX

Kind of noisy, but made a few. It was fun.

73 all
KD5MMM



N5LUL Operated by: Brad, 3779C from TX

Good to get back in the Sprint again! 20M died quickly after 00:00, so switched to 40M
and ended the evening on 80M. Was running the FT920 and Winslow hand key on 20M and 80M,
the FT857 and Know-Code key on 40M. Getting ready for SKN and will take the old HeathKit
station for a drive... DX-60B and HR-10B... clean, one-owner since 1975 and 1976! They
may be on the air next Sprint too!



VE3AKV Operated by: Bob, 5204T from ON

QHY to all... started out at 7.113 as per usual and stayed there until 00:53. It was
quiet so I jumped to 3.552 and stayed there until the end of SKS. I got hijacked a couple
of times on 3.552 but I didn't expect anyone to really hear me anyways... I was running 950mw.
Funny thing - I made 13 QSO's at QRPp... Thanks to those who yanked my signal out of the
noise and the crowd too. See you all next month. 73/72



K4BAI Operated by: John, 3280 from GA

FT1000MP, Alpha 78, 1 KW output, TH6DXX, dipole and zepp for 40, inverted vee for 80.
Surprised that 20M was open at the start with good signals from KL8DX, TX, LA, and IL.
But little activity on that band. 40M was good at the start. Had to QRT for 17 minutes
for dinner with the XYL. When returned to 40, band was going long. Did make one QSO
and heard N5LUL in the 7100-7115 frequency segment, but most activity was between 7048
and 7056. Worked G4LMW and KL8DX on 40. 80M was good as far west as TX, OK, and NE.
Skip didn't seem to be long since the AL stations had good signals. KL8DX called on 80
after the end of the Sprint. Nearly got Phil on all three bands. Thanks for all QSOs.
Merry Christmas and all the best for the New Year. Hope to work you all in ARRL SKN on
Jan 1 UCT. 73, John, K4BAI.



K9ZMD/6 Operated by: Gary, 891T from CA

Forty was really jumping when I finally got on the air, but that was half-way through the
event. So many signals, so little time (ya snooze, ya lose). Lots of old friends out
there, but I also heard a few 6000-series numbers & some very QRS fists. A tip of the
hat to the new members; I hope they ALL submit their logs! 73 & Jolly Holly to everyone.

Gary, K9ZMD/6

KB4QQJ Operated by: Randy, 3508T from NC

Well, I only had 20 minutes to play radio after getting home from Family Gathering. Great
start, N6WK, Gordon calling on 40. Haven't worked Gordon in a while and we barely made it
before QSB took its toll.
Next was MI station, then another, then another, what is it, a team effort? hi hi. Now I
hear a GA station with 6 minutes to go, W4UCZ. When Mark finishes his contact I get him
with three minutes to spare, Now another GA station, I'll swear it must be team night or
something, can't pay for an extra multi!! LOL
No problem, I got 3 minutes and John, K4BAI is smokin with VE3CWU, easy
peasy.........Well 2 minutes AFTER the sprint ends I call John and Bob to say well done.
It was bad conditions for both of them, even though I could hear each 599+! But let me
tell you guys, that was some staying power and willingness to complete the contact!! I was
impressed and proud to hear two SKCC members working so diligently. Made the sprint twice
as fun. I gave John and Bob a "well done" and had a nice chat with John after the sprint.
Can't use his contact for a sprint score, but it sure was high score in my log!!
Strongest signal tonight was Santa, well above the roof noise. Hope he found you all
being nice.
Merry Christmas All.

Merry Christmas from Caboose site 2



AD5WI Operated by: Mark, 866T from AR

Alot of QRN and weak signals here in NW Arkansas. Tried 160 meters for 20 minutes with no
contacts so finished up the sprint on 80 meters. As always enjoyed the sprint and many
great fists out there. We hope everyone has a great holiday season.

73, Mark AD5WI #866T



WD4AXA Operated by: Ted, 5175T from AL

WOW Pileups !!! Great fun as always. Thanks to all. Ted WD4AXA



K1NV Operated by: Jon, 2609-T from NV

This was a tough night for me. Thanks to all the stations who pulled my signal out of the
mud. Due to inclement weather, I didn't get the OCF dipole back up. All I had available
for 40M and 80M was the 260 foot dipole with coaxial feed, so loaded it through the tuner
without much hope of radiating a usable signal.

Thanks to the good ears of SKCC members, I managed (23) QSO's: (20) on 40M and (2) on 80M.
I listened a couple of times on 160M, but heard only a few hardy non-SKCC DXers. KL8DX
(AK)had a good signal on 40M and I eked out QSO's with AB1BW (CT) and K1PUB (MA) in New
England. K4ZGB (AL)was one of two QSO's on 80M (good ears, Tom). The 40M band seemed to
fold around 0100 hr. and my antenna wasn't up to making any waves on 80M.



K5ENA Operated by: John, 3045T from OK

Manage to make a few contacts between shopping with my wife. Made contacts on 40 and
80. Always enjoy our sprints.

73 and Merry Christmas to all.

John, K5ENA



K1PUB Operated by: Chas, 4101T from MA

Made a few QSOs on 40 M then at about 0055Z, like a "heard" mentality, suddenly everyone
moved to 80M. Thank you to K0LUW, AD5WI and K4BAI for QSOs on both 80 and 40. Although I
heard WA1AR and WA1VIL from MA, I never did work them, so no QSOs in my own back yard.

A fun sprint as usual, and I hope everyone has a great Holiday season and prosperous New
Year.



N2JNZ Operated by: George, 2836T from NY

Had a great time !!! Got Mark , AD5WI on 40 and 80 meters. Also got a shock on 40m when
calling CQ and Phil , KL8DX came back to me !!! Welcome to some new ops in the SKS !!!
Running a Kenwood TS 930s , 100 watts to a ZeroFive 40m vertical and using a Vizkey 90
degree Bug. Thanks all !! Merry Christmas and Happy 2010 !!

new weapon ..... !!



KKEX Operated by: Rick, 5220T from MO

First station I worked was Bob VE3AKV, then the dinner call. Upon returning I started
hunting for Q's and Mark AD5WI. Along the way I came across Ted K8AQM & Tom K4ZGB, both
had pile ups going. At the same time a phone call from Craig KA0FSP to say he was
on his way over. Still hunting for and not finding AD5WI, N6EV & K6LJC were good on 40M.
The band seemed to be long here, I could hear K0LUW on 80M but weaker than usual. When
KA0FSP arrived I shared what I had been doing, he used my computer to request membership.
The 2 hr's seemed to fly by....thanks to all for the Q's
Merry Christmas to all...hope to hear you for a rag chew over the holidays....73 Rick




WWAL Operated by: Ash, 6113 from CO

Ist time out and I am really slow. It has to improve.



WA1VIL Operated by: Greg, 443T from MA

Thanks to all for a great year of brass pounding and especially to those of you who put
these activities together. 73 and Happy Holidays to everyone!



KL8DX Operated by: Phil, 3800T from AK

I had to make a trip to Fairbanks today but was able to get back by the start of the
contest. Started off on 20 meters with K4BAI followed by N6WK. Those were the only two
stations I heard on 20 meters as it closes up around 0000z this time of year. I moved on
to 40 not having high expectations.

40 seemed pretty darn good. My farthest contacts were K8AQM, N2JNZ, and again, K4BAI. When
40 slowed to a crawl, I moved to 80 and only worked one station, W6UT (who I also worked
on 40 meters). I was excited to hear John, K4BAI on 80 meters! What a great signal and I
tried to work him right at the end of the contest but I did not make it through. I did
call him afterwards to see if he could hear my weak signal and having the good "ears" that
he has, I was able to log John on 80, almost 3 bands! I have LOTS of line noise on 80 so
it's not band you will find me on often.

I worked a handful of stations on 40 for the very first time. Since I'm on vacation, I was
looking forward to operating in the Sprint as it will probably be my last as I'm back to
work come January. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year and thanks for the contacts! My your
logbooks be filled with DX and SKCC contacts in 2010!



KKI Operated by: Jack, 2370T from WI

Worked the old novice portion of 40 until no more replies, then moved to 80, finishing up
back on 40. Used the old gal again (1919 Vibroplex Original).Was a perfect stress relief
to a stressful past two weeks. Tnx to all those that were out there. Merry Christmas and
best to you all in 2010! 73s, jack



VE3CWU Operated by: Bob, 5133T from ON

More great fun with SKCC members. Not too many Qs. Very noisy on 20m and 40m. (
starting to wonder if my nasty QRN is locally manufactured in the neighborhood and is
actually QRM!?) When I heard so many SKCC calls on 80m I tuned up my 40m dipole to 80m,
that band worked best for me !! Of only 6 Qs I found Mark ( special event station ) on 2
bands! 73, Bob VE3CWU



KA2KGP Operated by: Tom, 1494 from NY

Decent band conditions for this SKS Sprint. A fun run & good turnout just before the
holidays. Merry Christmas & Happy 2010 to all! 73



K2RFP Operated by: Dick, 2099T from NY

It's not easy going snowshoeing in two feet of snow.
It tired me out so only played radio for about an hour.


Winter on the property of the former RCA Radio Central transmitter facility.



WB8ENE Operated by: Art, 3773 from OH

This is a correction to my first submission. I didn't realize that AD5WI was the Special
SKCC member.



KQ1P Operated by: John, 5068 from ME

I got skunked last night, no contacts. Plenty of QRN from wind-driven snow.



NTA Operated by: John, 2826T from CO

Started on 20m - no joy. Spent entire time on 40m. K3, 600w HB Amp, Vertical, K2RFP logger.



AF2Z Operated by: Drew, 2082T from NJ

Two QSOs on 40m, including Mark AD5WI; the rest on 80. Sorry, W9ARE, I lost you... MI was
hot: got four in a row from that state, five total. Didn't hear anyone on upper 40m or
160m. Tried a few calls on 20m, but nil there. My rig: Elecraft K3 at 12-watts; 100-ft
wire up 30-ft; Junker straight key.



AB1BW Operated by: George, 2468T from CT

Despite a very high noise level for the first hour, conditions were pretty good in cold
CT. Found lots of activity on 80 meters the last part of the sprint. I divided my time
between sending exchanges, keeping the wood stove nice and hot and watching a UCONN
basketball game. GO HUSKIES. I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas and/or Happy
Holiday. 73, George



W1LIC Operated by: Wes, 1142 from ME

Bands weren't the best, but I made 13 contacts, enough new ones to apply for my Centurion,
and one new state for SKCC WAS! I can't complain!



N6WK Operated by: Gordon, 3 T from CA

Definitely Tough Conditions during this Sprint. It was very windy outside and the bands
seemed in very poor shape.
I started off on 20 meters and ended on 40 Meters. Only made 17 QSO's but I did get KL8DX
in the log as well as a new Japanese station JO3HPM. That was a real treat. I want to
Thank everyone that took the time to work me. Hope to see you all during the Next Sprint.



KA5TJS Operated by: Allen, 5172 from TX

Had a lot of fun. 40 mts was very quiet but had some QSB. Made all my contact there. See
you guys later. 73's Allen



K4NVJ Operated by: Joe, 393 from Calera, Al

A lot of good signals on 80.



K8KFJ Operated by: Gary, 2444 from WV

Having already checked 20 and 40m for Sprint signals and hearing none, I QSYed to 80m.
The band sounded in good shape with some big Sprint signals so I just stayed there for
the duration of the Sprint. Nice signals from all directions made for a fun Sprint.
Many thanks to those who worked me. 73, Gary (K8KFJ) #2444 in WV



W9QZ Operated by: Rick, 3974 from IN



1929 Hartley transmitter used during Sprint



K4UFT Operated by: Ted, 4289C from SC

I'd call this a Movie Star Sprint ... the star being Slim Pickens ... one Q on 40 and two
on 80. Didn't hear that much activity here in upstate SC. Guess lots of people were
getting ready for Christmas.

FT-950 @20 Watts to a random wire tossed across the roof. My original Speed-X key from
1957.

Merry Christmas to all!!! May the new year bring us better band conditions.




W1EJ Operated by: Ed, 1594T from CA

Not a lot but fun anyway.



KD6HTN Operated by: Kate, 5405 from CA

This month, I was unable to make myself heard by anyone. Yes, and I did remember to tune
my antenna. Just wanted to let everyone know that I tried.



G4LMW Operated by: Rob, 4454T from England

Not good conditions. Just 3 QSOs... never mind... it's Christmas!



K5ZOL Operated by: Bob, 3945T from TX

I've participated in a number of SKS ans WES but this is the first time I've submitted a

KK5NA Operated by: Joe, 1923C from TX

Fun event! Rig = K3 @ 5watts, Ant = EDZ @ 55ft.



N8BB Operated by: Werner, 5433T from MI

everybody in the New Year, Warmest wishes from the Haschke Family
