KBXB Operated by: Martin, 2712 from WI

I have made a handfull of qsos in previous sprints but never submitted a score. 40 Meters
was wonderful! I'll get more serious next time! Thanks for organizing these



N1LU Operated by: Don, 2252T from NH

Logging program messed up on me again and spent half the sprint trying to fix it. Guess I
should have pulled out the pencil and paper. 20m stayed strong for a while and 40 was
hopping.



WSZV Operated by: Eldon, 4999T from MO

WAS ABLE TO SPEND ABOUT 10 MINUTES AND GOT CALLED AWAY. HOPE TO DO BETTER NEXT MONTH



WA2JSG Operated by: Curt, 3018T from NJ

Nice sprint as always. 50 watts from a IC7000 into a vertical. Bencher straight key.




AE4LD Operated by: Larry, 3090T from NC

First time out with the AST-4 QRP rig, works really great, although static crashes every
now and then. Hope to see you folks at Dayton. 73 Larry



NV9X Operated by: Jim, 1358T from IL

SKCC always comes through. TU SKCC. Another fun sprint. Thanks to my contacts for putting up
with me. Looking forward to WES. This is a great, fun group. I will be at Hamvention,
proudly wearing my SKCC call badge.




WA1AR Operated by: Alan, 4079T from MA

Busy night. Several calls at a time, always tough to pick one call and hope the others
stay to try again. First hour on lower 40M. Then tried half hr on 80M, not as busy as
40M. Up to upper 40M and nothing for 15 min. Spent the last 15 Min S&P. CUL.

Alan



VA5LF Operated by: Sean, 4507C from SK

Poor conditions here, especially on 40m. A lot of unanswered CQs or replies too weak to
copy here. Still, had a good time and added a few more to the count for my T. See you all
in a couple weeks for the WES.



K5JHP Operated by: Bill, 84 from TX

Only worked 40 meters for last 30 minutes of the sprint. Be back for the next one.

KDV Operated by: Merlin, 1243T from ID

Worked this spirit while on vacation in Boise, Idaho.



K1PUB Operated by: Chas, 4101T from MA

Havn't been real active the kast two months, but the Sprint is usually fun and I had some
time. A few QSOs on 20 and 80 but most of the action was on 40.

See you next month!



WA1LWS Operated by: Hans, 1933T from MD

Many strong signals tonight. Almost everybody was 589 or 599.



W5KDM Operated by: Noel, 4812 from MS

Thanks to all who gave me a contact but a special one to Carl in Biloxi. You are my first
Mississippi SKCC contact. Greetings from Olive Branch.



KLUW Operated by: Russ, 1702T from NE

20 and 40 meters were in great shape tonite. Not much QRN and signals were relatively
strong in my area. Had a great time.





WMSM Operated by: Mark, 6585 from MO

my first sks 2hr sprint ..wasn`t too bad ,i heard a lot of good signals on 20 and 40 with
some static on 40 that took out a couple of lighter sigs(sorry).

Good fun as usual- Thanks everyone. Got some new numbers and condx on 40 meters were
excellent at my QTH. 73 CUL



VE3FUJ Operated by: Brion, 4936C from ON

To night I could only devote 45 min to the cause. I made 2 contacts and I did hear a 3rd
station calling me, He was just to close to a strong station and got washed out, I
apologize for not making him. Better luck next time. Try near 7055 at 0000utc. Brion VE3FUJ



KC9DJQ Operated by: Gary, 4252 from WV

Only had a few minutes to play radio this time & spent some of that being beat upon by my
logging program. Thanks KB4QQJ and KK0I.



W7GVE Operated by: Ed, 729T from AZ

20 died early and 40 was a mass of QRN---- Still enjoyed working the event--- I am
getting to know the names of a lot of the good SKCC folks -ED



KE4KY Operated by: Glenn, 2622T from KY

Great time....as always.

73,

NUMP Operated by: Bill, 659T from MO

I got a late start because I had to clean fish. But I had fun catching the fish and then I
had fun on SKS. I dug a hole on 40 meters and stayed there. First time I tried that and I
really enjoyed myself. Sure was good to see so many familiar calls and some new
ones..73..Bill N0UMP



KKEX Operated by: Rick, 5220T from MO

Great conditions on 40 meters tonight, good to hear everyone.
73 Rick



WA2OQJ Operated by: Jim, 5941 from NY

So Bummed! Totally forgot about the sprint and didnt get involved until about 0115! I owe
Dick K2RFP an apology, heard him call CQ SKS and I thought he meant to be calling CQ SKCC
and I end up tying him up in standard QSO and eating up valuable time! Sorry Dick! 40 was
wall to wall SKS was great to hear but tough to sneak in... but I did manage to get a couple
Lost Wayne WA9VEE due to QRM...Next sprint-->POST-IT notes on the monitor!!!!



NG7Z Operated by: Paul, 802T from WA

Got just over an hour in the sprint. One of these days I'll put in a full two hours....or
not. WX is improving and it's hard to sit in front of a radio when the outdoors is
calling. cu next month. Paul NG7Z



NUYN Operated by: Dennis, 5753 from MO

Glad to make contacts with my Missouri neighbors Bill N0UMP and Mark W0MSM, both in Garden
City. Even worked a FISTS station calling CQ SKS! 73 to all.



WA9VEE Operated by: Wayne, 4944C from WI

Nice conditions.



KKI Operated by: Jack, 2370T from WI

Fun event tonight. Ran in the old novice portion of 40 meters for most of the time. Last
few minutes, I moved down to 80 meters. Signals seemed to be exceptional here. I ran using
my "new" Ten Tec Omni VII (75w) on an inverted vee up 25' and a 1940 Vibroplex Original.
Thanks folks for all the contacts. 73s, Jack, KK0I



W2HWW Operated by: Tony, 4488 from NJ

Found 40M very active but relatively short. The Softrock RXTX v6.3 into a HF9V vertical
did well.



N8XE Operated by: Jason, 3806T from OH

After a few months off, it felt good to jump back into the SKS. Could only operate the first hour. Pointed the beam
west and worked 20M the whole time. My first contact was with my buddy Phil, KL8DX, up in Alaska! Always good to
work you Phil. Worked a few in Saskatchewan. Lots of strong signals on the band! Thanks guys... 73, N8XE



KQ1P Operated by: John, 5068 from ME

Very good conditions on 40M. I need less than 10 new SKCC contacts to make Centurion so I spent time hunting new
calls with not much success. Thanks to all who pulled me in. It was great to work a few SKCC members who have not
been in my log for many months. 73.



W3NP Operated by: Dave, 3182T from WV

Spent the entire 2 hours on 40 meters which was loaded with SKS activity. The noise
level, while not bad, is increasing and I apolgize to the QRP station calling me that I
could just not pull out of the noise. I used my Vibroplex Original Presentation bug
(circa 1956) without any extra weight and couldn't quite get the speed down to where I
would have wanted it to be for the sprint. As usual, I had a great time and worked a lot
of first class ops. Those 2 hours sure go fast!!



AF2Z Operated by: Drew, 2082T from NJ

Nice show of activity on 20, 40 & 80m. Mostly eastern and mid states; no DX. It's always
fun to bounce radio waves off the ionosphere and see where they will land; guess I am
easily amused, haha!



K4UFT Operated by: Ted, 4289C from SC

Only got on in the last 20 minutes. 40M lots of QRN. I always look forward to the
sprints. Now if we could just get some improvement in the propagation I could write
something other than a "7" in the frequency column of my logbook.

FT-950 @50 Watts to home-brew vertical made with a 40M "Hamstick". Navy Flameproof key.



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

I was there in spirit . . . only. So, how much power does "spirit" have? Not enough for
even one contact, I can tell you. On the up side, the house is now sporting some fine,
new Low E windows, my wife is happy, and we've enjoyed 3 nights at a great hotel in
beautiful downtown Palmdale. See you for WES. 73

Gary, K9ZMD/6



KA2KGP Operated by: Tom, 1494C from NY

Pretty nice bands this SKS Sprint,even 20m. was productive. See ya'll in the WES. 73



KE5YUM Operated by: Terry, 5173C from OK

Though I was only able to devote about 45 minutes to the sprint, I really enjoyed
myself. Thanks to those with whom I made contact: K7ZYV, K0LUW, N0UMP, VA5LF, K2RFP,

Another fun time although I had to split my time between the TV and the sprint. Great
hockey game and just had to share my attention. Go Red Wings. Lots of very good signals on
and had a blast. W7GVE, Ed was a great copy on both 40 and 20 meters. Also W7IEX Van was
nice to find on 40 meters while working qrp. Worked KB4QQJ in the middle of the sprint
instead of dead last. Thanks to all for pulling my qrp out and making this another
enjoyable time.



WB5NPW Operated by: Jesse, 5633 from LA

Didn't put a lot of time into this sprint. Managed to make a work K7ZYV in Biloxi,
MS ... a 70 mile contact. Fun as usual and looking forward to the WES.



AJ4SB Operated by: Rob, 5552T from FL

40 meters was wall-to-wall. Very fun!!



KB9BVN Operated by: Brian, 2076C from IN

Great fun on Sprint night, 5w doing well off the attic dipole last night. Was very glad
to work AE6DH in California!



WA5VQM Operated by: Mark, 58C from TX

Didn't have much time to participate which is a shame as things sounded busy. Looking
forward to the next one!



K9SKC Operated by: Bob, 3945T from TX



K5ZOL aka K9SKC



K3MSB Operated by: Mark, 5965 from PA

Worked 20M for the first hour of the sprint, then spent the last hour on 80M. I was
delighted when Phil KL8DX called me on 20M to add AK to my list of states worked for SKCC
WAS. New states worked were AK (KL8DX), NV (W7IEX), KY (KE4KY), and CT (AB1BW).
Equipment here was my B&W 5100B, SX-101A, and J-38 for the Sprint.

Refreshments are always on hand for Sprints!!



N2JNZ Operated by: George, 2836T from NY

Havent touched the bug since the WES so was a little rusty at first !! Thanks to all who
called me !!!



K7SDW Operated by: Greg, 6224T from CA

Had to re-submit as I did not remember to include my Mul right for all the different
states, etc. Very noisy in CA for this UTC.. Ruff to compete with mid states, but
getting better at band selection. For got to work stations on 40 I worked on 20, so got
short changed there this time, hi hi... keep up the sprints.. should have a better spread
on freq's so we dont hammer the qrp's.. think they should have a freq segment set aside
for them during sprint or a qrp only??? 73 de Greg




KA1XC Operated by: John, 5188T from MA

Had fun, hooked up the new NT9K ProPump for the first time and tried it out - what a
behemoth!!! It's a beauty but I'm not sure if I can handle this thing lol. Best DX was
Phil KL7DX on 20M.



KB4QQJ Operated by: Randy, 3508T from NC

I had a great time again. conditions were a bit spotty but still better than they have
been. The cycle seems to be slowly gaining. I used my Icom 703+ this time at 10 watts into
a freshly built (rebuilt) doublet at about 33 feet center. Bug was the 1941 McElroy and SK
was my Begali Spark.
Strongest signal was Karen, W4KRN at 30 over. I missed K2RFP this time but was pleased to
hear him take the time to explain the sprint to a caller. Well Done Dick. Thanks to
everybody and I'll see you in the next Mystery Sprint???
