WA2JSG Operated by: Curt, 3018T from NJ

No QRP this time, rather 50 watts from my old Kenwood TS440S into an elevated vertical.
Used my English Kent Key. Nice sprint, as always.




WA5VQM Operated by: Mark, 58C from TX

About half my contacts at 10W with a MFJ-9440 portable rig. Hard to zero beat with a receiver as broad as a barn!
Took up a lot of time tinkering with that during the event. All other contacts with the Drake Twins. J-38 on all. 40
meters was hoppin'! Looking forward to next one. 73, Mark




KE4KY Operated by: Glenn, 2622T from KY

I had a great time...as usual. Some very good fists out there tonite. I need to get a
bug and give it a try some evening.



W4KRN Operated by: Karen, 4495T from VA

Most of my QSO's on 20m tonight. Nice to work some ops for the first time. IC756PRO3, 4 el
yagi up 55ft. (DX80 Inv. Vee 40/80m) and 100 watts. Begali Spark Key. Thanks to all for the
contacts and to the great scoremaster!



W7GVE Operated by: Ed, 729T from AZ

20 was red hot until 0115 --- 40 was ruff



NTA Operated by: John, 2826T from CO

Nice evening - bands were fairly quiet and busy. 20m started off suprisingly well, but
most contacts made on 40m. 80m was a little disappointing. K3/100, vertical, K2RFP logger.



VE3FUJ Operated by: Brion, 4936C from ON

Not too many heard my 4000mW to night, but so be it. It is after all an all Power event. I
started on 20 made one contact, did a little better on 40 and 80. Just managed to wrap up
as the bell rang. Brion



KK5NA Operated by: Joe, 1923T from TX

Good propagation tonight. Rig = k3 @ 5 watts. Ant = EDZ @ 55ft.



W5KDM Operated by: Noel, 4812 from MS

I had a sever cut on my keying hand last Thursday and figured no SKS for me. But I had to
get in there and try. If we worked please forgive my awful fist!



KG4W Operated by: Ed, 2416T from VA

Wow, the bands were hot tonight. Stayed on 20 for 1st hour & moved to 40, never made it
to 80. Ran with my usual 200w & wires. EA1EVA (Javi 5871C) called me on 40 & Bob AL7WH
had a big sig on 20. Tnx to Brian VE5CUL for the rare SK province from Canada for my last
qso. Tnx to all, sounded like a lot of people were on for this one.



VA5LF Operated by: Sean, 4507 from SK

Great sprint. Finally remembered to make it and I sure am glad I did. I tried calling CQ
for the first time in a CW contest of any type. Sorry to those I missed, I'm really not
used to pileups! Still had a blast and will definitely try to remember the next one.

Got 20 new SKCC numbers, expect a C from me soon!



WA1VIL Operated by: Greg, 443T from MA

Surprised to find 20 open here on the East Coast after 8 pm local time. Thanks for all the
contacts! 73 to all!



K6JF Operated by: Jim, 4261T from CA

First SKS since October after which the time change made this sprint impossible. It was
fun for about 40 mins until 20m became a ghost band. Did not start hearing 40m until the
end time!



K3RLL Operated by: Don, 3133C from FL

K2 @ 5 watts to indoor heavily loaded dipole.
Many thanks to those skilled ops patient enough to pull my signal out of the din.
72 ... Don



K4UFT Operated by: Ted, 4289C from SC

Used my Vibroplex "Presentation" that I've had for over 30 years and never been able to
master. Now that it's slowed down with an "Extendadot" I can use it. I've always
noticed that on the air, bugs seem to be somewhat "choppy" as an old timer I knew said
years ago. I was no exception ... I'm infinitely smoother with a straight key. It
seemed harder having to concentrate on new hand movements.

As usual stayed on 40 Meters with my FT-950 at 20 Watts to the home-brew vertical.



WABGV Operated by: Slim, 5465T from MO

Great Fun! Tnx to John (K7DJO). Needed UT for WAS. Missed Rick (K0KEX). Where were you
Rick.



WDK Operated by: Rich, 5164 from MN

Greetings All! 20 and 40 were hot! Couldn't believe the strong signals. Got a late start
and had to quit early. All good ops. Thanks all for the nice reports.
72's
Rich/wd0k #5164



N2JNZ Operated by: George, 2836T from NY

Had a good time !!! 40 meters seemed VERY noisy which made tough going. *0 was a bit
better but on both bands I didnt hear a lot of the usual ops .... ??? Thanks to everyone
for a good outing !!!!

New bits .......................



NUYN Operated by: Dennis, 5753 from MO

Band conditions seem to be improving. Glad to see good turnout. Two new Canadian
Provinces: Saskatchewan (tnx Sean VA5LF) and Quebec (tnx Ante VA2BBW).



WA4WLI Operated by: Bob, 6007 from AL

Using a new Kent SK - took some practice, but finally able to send without laughing out
loud.



K5ENA Operated by: John, 3045T from OK

Good conditions oni 20 and 40. Always enjoy our sprints.

73,
John, K5ENA



VE5CUL Operated by: Brian, 1672 from SK

It was great to meet 4 SKCC members that I hadn't met before. I listened on 40 as I ate a
tv dinner after I got home. 73-Brian




K6FFY Operated by: Nick, 1221T from WA

I was glad to hear some new calls participating in this Sprint.



WL7WH Operated by: Bob, 2940T from AK

Band condx great, but unexpected company made me stop the sks.



K8NB Operated by: Noel, 3112T from MI

Finally had an available Tuesday night so I worked most of the sprint. The rig was my
1.5 watt SW40+ by Small Wonder Labs. Key of choice was the old Speed-x that I had used
for my first qso, back in '76. Did use a bug for a couple contacts. Thanks to all on 40
that made the effort to hear me qrp. I will try to make more of these, seemed to be lots
of activity. 73, Noel, K8NB



WA1AR Operated by: Alan, 4079T from MA

With the time change my big problem at the end was staying awake. Several times just as
I started to nod off, I woke up to the sound of CW.



W4HDM Operated by: Damon, 3729T from GA

A lot of noise on the bands here, but managed to get 6 QSO's! Heard lots of Ops on the bands.



KE5YUM Operated by: Terry, 5173C from OK

I really enjoyed this month's sprint. I was able to use 20 meters for the entire time
that I was on the air. My dad--78 years old and learning CW--was able to join me and
listen to the sprint. Thanks for all the QSO, and I was able to add WV (Thanks Garie
K8KFJ) to my list of states for SKCC WAS. 73, Terry



KD8JHJ Operated by: Mike, 4877C from OH

Wow! lots of sks signals on 40 meters. Thanks for the qso's. Used Vibroplex Original
bug and 30 watts to end fed half wave up 30 feet. 73 Mike



W3NP Operated by: Dave, 3182T from WV

Great sprint! I stayed on 40 meters for the entire event, working 34 of the 40 QSO's
without leaving 7.115. Moved down the band for the last 15 minutes and SKS ops were
everywhere. I was using my WW2 German Telefunken key along with my "modern" rig, the Ten
Tec Omni 6 Plus. As always, it was a lot of fun!



WB8ENE Operated by: Art, 3773T from OH

I only managed to make one contact on 20 (early) and one on 80, but 40 always seems to be
the best band for me. K0LUW Russ, I tried calling you several times, but couldn't break
through the pileup on your frequency. You were like a rare DX station last night. TNX
to all for the contacts. See you on the air. 73, Art



K4BAI Operated by: John, 3280 from GA

This is a corrected score. The original one must have had an error in the number of
bonus points. 73, John, K4BAI.



AJ4SB Operated by: Rob, 552T from FL

I had a blast. I had my first pileup ever.



KEN Operated by: Eliot, 256T from Minneapolis,mn

Bands in better shape tonight. Stations could actually hear the peanut whistle on 40 meters.
I realize the NTS guys have important work to do but the fact they jump on the assigned
frequency (80 meters) without regard to other qso's (SKCC) is really poor form. This is the
third time I have encountered an NTS CW NCS blasting SKCC signals. Other than that, great
fun. I worked about 2/3rds of the Sprint but got called away.

KA2KGP Operated by: Tom, 1494C from NY

A nice SKS Sprint, 80, 40 & 20m. were all pretty good here in WNY. I tried 160m., but
QRN levels were high. Rig: IC-7000 at 25w. into AT-7000 tuner to either a 5 band dipole
or 5 band gnd. mtd. vertical. 73 to all.

This time 100 wats max. and only 40 m. band.Vy great sprint and vy sleep here hi hi.73



WS9E Operated by: Joe, 3859 from WI

Lots of QRN & weak signals this time. No one could hear me on 20. I made all my contacts
on 40. See everyone next time.



N4SAM Operated by: Sam, 96 from AL

Good band conditions, 20 meters was open in north Alabama most of the first hour, 40 was
great, worked a few on 80 before time ran out, all QRP/5w.





KQ1P Operated by: John, 5068 from ME

Very good conditions on 40M last night, I just stayed on that band. Plenty of very strong signals, sometimes wall-to-
wall SKCC. It was tough getting my QRP signal through that amount of QRM. Plenty of fun and the W7's were coming in
well too. Thanks Javi for the contact, you were consistently strong here all evening. Anyone who wants my Maine QSL
please send me a card through the SKCC Buro, I am happy to answer all requests. Until next time, 73.



AF2Z Operated by: Drew, 2082T from NJ

I like the later start time. 20m was open here for a bit but most contacts on 40, followed
by 80. Found Kurt K9SKC hanging out on 7057 KHz. Pretty good activity on 40m novice
section. Tks all: K0LUW K5ENA WA1LWS KX9DX K8EE K3MSB K8KIC W3NP WB8ENE N4FI K4BAI NV9X

KKEX Operated by: Rick, 5220T from MO

The conditions were good in the mid-west, George, your signal was good on both 40 & 80.
Tuesday evening is busy with VHF nets operations which took some of my time but the
multi-tasking helps me get ready for Field day. Welcome to the new SKCC members also,
VA5LF, KE4KY, & VA2BBW Good to hear you. 73 Rick



W1EJ Operated by: Ed, 1594T from CA

W7TMD Operated by: Tom, 6461 from ID

I Had alot of fun running QRP.I hope to do better next time.See ya next month!



N8BB Operated by: Werner, 5433T from MI

Was not a good night for CQ'n at qrp levels, very few returns so I had to Search and
Pounce all over the bands. 40 meters was the best which is odd as 80 usually does the best
for me.
Did work some great signals from OREGON, WN4PKG. K0LUW was his usual 40 over. Also Nevada
and California were darn good. Thanks for the fun evening everyone. Werner N8BB



KA1XC Operated by: John, 5188C from MA

Made a few contacts on 20 then switched to 40, band was in good shape. Great to work
EA1EVA, thanks for staying up so late Javi! With a half hour to go the good wife was
motioning that she needed me (I was wearing phones) so I completed the QSO and went to go
see what was up. She told me that while I was operating the baby had thrown up twice and
then after she got that cleaned up the 3yr old missed the potty. Then, as she was
explaining this the baby threw up ALL over her while she was talking to me. Poor wife,
poor baby! That ended SKS for me, had to get QRV with the mop lol. 73!



WB5NPW Operated by: Jesse, 5633 from LA

Only had about 30 minutes to operate. Made a few contacts on 20 and a couple on 40.
Exchanges were much quicker than previous sprints.



K3NCO Operated by: Marc, 6144T from MD

Got a late start (forgot that Wednesday meant Tuesday night) but condx on 40 held up for
quite some time - almost hurt to go to 80.



VA3TSK Operated by: Greg, 4521 from ON

Worked QRP on batteries with a 1964 British Army leg-strap key. Great fun as always.



AA9KH Operated by: Jay, 219C from IL

Thanks to my neighbor NV9X for reminding me about the SKS ... AND the QSO on 20M, Jim!
Think MAYBE this is my first SKS ever. Usually enjoy WES ... it's longer (hi). 73 + GL de
AA9KH



W3RT Operated by: Red, 3237T from PA

Lots of good signals for the SKS this time. Worked many newer numbered stations, and
welcome to those folks. Having fun with CW is a great way to spend an evening!
Cndx hr Knwd TS 940 at 50 watts this time to the sloper at 22 feet, or the tribander for
20m contacts at 25 feet. Hope to get the loop up when the wx stays favorable.

Thanks to those that have me in their logs.

Best 73, & CU all in the next one.

Red, W3RT SKCC #3237T in PA.



KB4QQJ Operated by: Randy, 3508T from NC

I missed it all together. Got home about ten minutes after it ended. Bunt not going to let
NC go with out an entry at all!! I guess that qualifies me as QRPp eh? One watt or less?
Zero watts is less than one. Next time. Thanks to all who make it happen.
