NTA Operated by: John, 2826T from CO

Ran QRP for the first time - nice experience. Also nice to see 20m activity. Wound up with
about half Q's on 20m & half on 40m with a few on 80m. K2 @ 5w, vertical, K2RFP Sprint
Logger.



WSZV Operated by: Eldon, 4999T from MO

not a lot of time available but had a good time



N1LU Operated by: Don, 2252T from NH

QRO for a change. First sprint with my new Kent key. Started off running but had problems
with the logging program so went to search and pounce until I thought I had the problem
fixed. Went back to running for a while near 7114 and had enough action to keep me busy.
Fun as usual.



AB1BW Operated by: George, 2468T from CT

Another great sprint with lots of activity on both 40 and 80 meters. See you next month.
73, George



VE3AKV Operated by: Bob, 5204T from ON

GE to all... I came in for the last half hour on 7.114 Thanks to the seven calls I worked
for pulling out my 5w QRP signal and fist. K4UFT, W7GVE, AB8FJ, K9PMV, KE5YUM, N5IXA and
W4CUX right at 01:59 :)

See ya all next month... 73/72




WA4WLI Operated by: Bob, 6007 from AL

Very humbling...but great fun!

Weathering the blizzard of '10



KBETU Operated by: Phil, 4542 from AL

Guess QRP is not the way to go for these Sprints. Just an added challenge.



KD5JHE Operated by: Jerry, 1976T from MS

Been a while since I could work a Sprint. Thanks for the Q's and a few new ones, gl 73
KD5JHE 1976T



WB8ENE Operated by: Art, 3773 from OH

Got 9 new numbers towards my "C", and only 7 to go. TNX for the DX contact Gene K8EE
from the west side of Cleveland (Parma) to the east side of Cleveland (Mantua). HEE
HEE. Nice signal here on 80 meters. 73 to all, and thanks for the contacts. It was
fun. Now if my straight key would stop acting up. Must be dirty contacts. See you in
the WES.



K3NCO Operated by: Marc, 6144 from MD

First try at a SKS. Started on 20 where activity was light, then moved to 40, where AL
and TN stations were loud. Never made it to 80.



WA1AR Operated by: Alan, 4079T from MA

Fun sprint. Band conditions a bit QRN tonight. No activity on 20M so I did not say long
and spent an hour on 40 and an hour on 80M. With the sprint and DX contest last weekend
I am a bit CWed out for a while.

Alan



K4YMQ Operated by: Ira, 200 from AL

Its been a long time since I operated one of SKCC events. It was very enjoyable. I will
try to be more active ion the future. Thanks to those I worked. 73 Ira K4YMQ



NNB Operated by: Nate, 6225 from KS

My first try as "running" a frequency which worked rather well thanks to my K3Y/0
experience last month. I didn't start until 0045z so I think I did rather well staying on
40m the entire time.




KC4FLT Operated by: Carl, 3625 from AL

Thanks again, Dave, thanks for being the skcc station!
I got a late start and almost got k9skc but he missed my number 10 watts is hard to hear
and he did well just to get my call.

Thanks to all



WA5VQM Operated by: Mark, 58C from TX

Only could play the last hour but it was great fun. 40 got a little weird towards the end.
80 was noisy but usable. Thanks to all. 73, Mark



W3NP Operated by: Dave, 3182T from WV

My first sprint. Stayed on 40 meters for the entire time. I had planned to move to 80 at
the halfway mark but 40 was good for most of the evening with signal strengths dropping at
the very end. It was a busy 2 hours but I had fun!



W4CUX Operated by: Bill, 5497C from GA

Great Sprint. Mostly worked 40m. Some on 80. Look forward to next one.
73,
Bill - W4CUX



K4ZGB Operated by: Tom, 796T from AL

I would like to thank all the Alabama stations for being on tonite.
Hope it was noticeable throughout the night.
tom




AA4N Operated by: Mike, 4371C from TN

Yow! That was a busy one! The last 20 minutes was a hoot!

Started on 20M and did okay, swapped to 40M it was okay but not too busy, Switched to
80M and found the action. It sounded like a war zone.

Thanks for all the fun. I hope I didn't step on too many toes there at the end. Even
with a 500Hz filter, I could hear 3 other folks working near me during the last 10
minutes or so.

W1EJ Operated by: Ed, 1594T from CA

Only got in half an hour but I had fun.



W5KDM Operated by: Noel, 4812 from MS

80 was great here. I wish I had spent more time on it instead of 20 and 40.



KLUW Operated by: Russ, 1702T from NE

Really good conditions tonite for my QTH. Got a late start but made a few contacts and had
a good time.





N5LUL Operated by: Brad, 3779C from TX

Had a great time this evening. Caught a few on 20, 40, and 80M tonight. Was using the
Winslow key and the FT-920. Does anyone have any info on the Winslow keys, i've not seen
many and am curious what others they made and when. n5lul@juno.com



WABGV Operated by: Slim, 5465C from MO

NUYN Operated by: Dennis, 5753 from MO

NJL Operated by: Jim, 2079T from IA

Had a ball. Most QSOs with the FP but a couple with my 1956 Blue Racer. Had a non member
call just after the sprint to complement me on my fist and ask what was going on. I lead
him to the web page. Maybe he will be in the next sprint!



N2JNZ Operated by: George, 2836T from NY

Had fun as usual !! BIG signals on 80 tonite. Bands were full of SKCC which is great !!!
Kinda burned out from the weekend CW but too much fun to miss !!!



KKEX Operated by: Rick, 5220T from MO

Conditions were good in Missouri tonight, My first was K4ZGB on 20M, when I went to 40M at
7:30 PM there was K4ZGB. In between all the stations there was Javi EA1EVA, I called him
twice but it wasn't happening, SRI Javi..next time. Just as I was ready to go to 80M I
hear K9SKC/Mark K0EX at 599, Thanks Mark. 80M was good and towards the close I ran across Slim
WA0BGV about 40 miles south of my QTH, and 6 Kcs down there was K4ZGB again, Tom do we get
anything special for 3 band 2 hour sprint....
Some fun, thanks to all for the qso's tonight...here we have 8' to 10" snow and bone
chilling temps...nice to have something to do besides shovel snow...73 Rick

to many many more! -Mark K0EX



K9ZMD/5 Operated by: Gary, 891T from NM

Success! Did not die stringing wire between two trees on the steep ridge overlooking
Ruidoso, NM. Did make my doublet and travel tuner play well together. Did manage to
sandwich operating time between chunks of quality family time. Did not forget SKS. NM
is on the results chart!
My thanks to all who answered my CQ, and to the others who managed to pick my signal from
the many answering their CQ's. A few even mentioned that NM has seldom been heard during
SKCC events (judging by some signal reports, it was barely heard).
My operating week ends about noon on Thursday, so there are still two days of operating
fun for me. Most of my contacts have been on 20 and 30 meters in the morning hours; if
anyone needs NM for SKCC WAS or whatever, give a listen + or - 2 from the SKCC
frequencies. 73

W4KRN Operated by: Karen, 4495T from VA

Managed to work Bob WL7WH before 20m went away...Whoo hoo! Used my Begali Spark Key. Loud W.
Coast signals on 40m.



K6CSL Operated by: Bert, 4486 from CA

I was set up running 5W for the QRP Fox hunt that followed this Sprint(Actually I forgot
that could run my full 100W)I was very surprised to have worked WL7WH up in AK, on 20M.
That's a first for my "invisible" antennas. I heard a number of good signals on 40 and 80
and tried to call all I could copy, with no other replies. How-ever now I can add AK to
my QRP quest for WAS. Good night to all, I'll be back for the next SKCC event. Bert, K6CSL
P.S.-I heard and tried to call K9SKC multiple times on 40, but he apparently never heard
my call.



KB4QQJ Operated by: Randy, 3508T from NC

What a great Sprint!! First contact was K9SKC on 40m! off to a good start. Then I moved
off and started calling SKS. plenty of answers! Ha, a mini pile up. And a rare (in the
SKS) thing happened. I called and two stations answered in near perfect harmony!! So I
answered both in one reply and turned it over to them in turn. It went off perfect. Well
done and great operating Frank, AA2XB and George, KA1SAW. That was a great example of good
operators. Thank You both.
I still hear several operators more than 900 Hz off zero. That is ok now while band isn't
crowded, but you'll not be heard when filters kick in so don't be surprised when people
don't answer.
It's not because your signal is weak. It's because you aren't transmitting on their frequency.
Strongest signal was N0JL, Jim in Iowa. A steady 50 over. Great signal and I told him so!
I don't usually chat in the 2hr sprint. The bands are really getting better. Great time
thanks to everybody who participated.

73,

Can you name it?



KE5YUM Operated by: Terry, 5173C from OK

I enjoyed this sprint very much. I started on 20 but after 15 minutes swtiched to 40 and
made great contacts throughout the country and into Cananda. As always, I look forward
to the next month's sprint.



KQ1P Operated by: Johnpeckenham, 5068 from ME

I was able to operate just for the last half hour of the sprint. Conditions were very good on 40M and I met some new
SKCC members. Thanks for those who tried to pull my QRP signal out of the noise. 73.



NG7Z Operated by: Paul, 802T from WA

Started out on 20M and found it very busy. Got a call from Alex UAEZ who is not a member
off the back of the beam which was very surprising. The band started to fade at 0040 so I
switched to 40M. It was still light here on the west coast. One way propagation from the
east is the norm at this time so I took 20 minutes off and came back at 0100 and started
CQing. I gave out 599 signal reports and got 559 reports back so I knew it was still
tough to hear me from the east. Stayed on 40M until I got called away at 0145. Nice to
hear so many new C and T stations and a good number of 6000 plus callsigns. Thanks for
the Q's and hope to be on for the WES in March. I'll be QRV in the NAQP RTTY contest this
weekend as W7MRC. 73 Paul NG7Z



KA2KGP Operated by: Tom, 1494C from NY

Another nice SKS Sprint. Band conditions were fair & lots of signals out there. Rig:
IC-7000 at 50w. into a 5 band dipole up 25 ft. with a straight key. 73 to all



EA1EVA Operated by: Javi, 5871T from Spain

My first sprint with a T. A lot of noise this time. My apologys if sometimes I cant hear
any station.
Ten QSOs in 40 meters, never made it to 20 and only K1PUB Chas, in 80 meters. See you in
the WES. 73 Javi 5871T.



KE7YTE Operated by: Tomandrews, 6447 from AZ

I'm beginning to get used to the sprintlogger. I'm a 64 year old feeling like a 14 year
old again. I got my Novice when I was 14.



K4UFT Operated by: Ted, 4289C from SC

Only got about 30 minutes of operating time and stayed up on the 40 Meter "Novice
Band" ... lots of activity there. Nil on 15 and 20 meters.

FT950 @20 Watts to home brew vertical. Navy Flameproof key has become my favorite.

Have noticed that 15 and 12 meters have been open quite a lot during the morning and mid-
day here in upstate SC ... dast we hope that cndx are finally changing?


A photo of a clean and neat operating desk is obviously staged.



N8BB Operated by: Werner, 5433T from MI

Got to admit it was a bit frustrating at qrp levels Tuesday night. Got clobbered several
times and did not get any runs going anywhere. Thanks to Dennis W6UT for 40 meters ,
almost had him on 20 but very shaky. Several big signals (K0LUW, K4QQJ) and some nice easy
signals. But in general was wishing there was a bigger spread on the band. Think we tend
to cluster just a wee bit. Thanks to all for copying my qrp and overall it was still fun.

K5ZOL Operated by: Bob, 3945T from TX

Wish I could have participated the whole 2 hours, but 40 minutes was all I could manage.



KC3QU Operated by: Hank, 4567 from AL

First sprint for, see you next time. 73, Hank,KC3QU



K3MSB Operated by: Mark, 5965 from PA

This was my first SKCC Sprint; had a great time. Running a B&W 5100B transmitter and
Hallicrafters SX-101A receiver. Antenna is a vertical. Banging away on a J-38 key.



K1PUB Operated by: Chas, 4101T from MA

Fun sprint, bands seemed decent. 20 was dead here, worked 40 and 80. Surprised to work
Javi, EA1EVA on 80M.

Thank you all and see you next month.



KI6BHB Operated by: Dave, 4186C from CA

Lots of sigs out there. Was fun to make contact with K2RFP and NT9K again. The bands
they are a changin!




WA9VEE Operated by: Wayne, 4844C from WI

So glad this midwest black propagation hole is closing up and evening QSOs are looking in
good shape again. Wasted some time trying 80 (signals but not contest participants) and
160 (no contest activity heard). Thank goodness for 40.
