WB8SDA Operated by: Carmen, 2339 from OH

Started out on a blistering 10 qso's per hour then it died and got two more for a total of
4 contacts for my hour and 12 minutes...haha...had a great time. Lots of stations on top
of each other tonight. Always a fun time. Hope to see you next month



AB8FJ Operated by: Ted, 62C from OH

Rig used was my Ten-Tec Argonaut II at 5W output to the end-fed random wire.
Key used was my Bencher RJ-2.



NTA Operated by: John, 2826T from CO

Nice evening. Trying out a new antenna (W5YI Mystern Ant) and I seemed to work more New
England than before; however, I didn't work anyone in California!! 20m was hot the first
hour, 40m seemed a bit slow, and no one was on 80m that I could hear. Tnx for the Q's!
Running a K3 with K2RFP's Sprint Logger.



WA4WLI Operated by: Bob, 6007 from AL

Got in late. Lots of QRN, but lots of fun. Thanks.



KW4JS Operated by: John, 4800 from TN

Thank you to all I worked. I enjoyed each QSO. Rig: Elecraft K2 at 5 Watts into a
vertical oriented one wavelength 80 meter loop.
73,
John, KW4JS



K3NCO Operated by: Marc, 6144T from MD

Well, too many things happening - didn't even get on for an hour!



WSZV Operated by: Eldon, 4999T from MO

Lots of storms in area but got in a few all on 20m but 1. getting ready for the wes next



NV9X Operated by: Jim, 1358T from IL

What a great way to spend a couple of hours on a warm weeknight. Not a lot of Q's, but some
new ones. TU to all my contacts, fer putting up with me. SKCC is the best. Looking forward
to WES.



WA2JSG Operated by: Curt, 3018T from NJ

Nice conditions on 40m, so stayed there for the entire time. Nice to work Russ K0LUW (had
to wait in line for him hi hi) whom I met in Dayton earlier this year.
Rig hr: Icom IC7000, 45 watts to a Butternut vertical elevated 12ft above ground.




WABGV Operated by: Slim, 5465T from MO

Had the best conditions on 20 meters. Then went to 40 when that dried up and found lots
of static. Was able to snag a few between the crshes. Did not hear or work any of my MO
friends this time. Did work my friend Jerry, K2PAY(again) . Jerry! We're gonna have to
keep metting this way! Hi 73 de Slim (Wa0BGV)



VA5LF Operated by: Sean, 4507T from SK

Well, that was fun! I got to run a few pileups on 20 which is quite fun. 40 was a bust
here, only 1 QSO. Still, managed 31 QSOs which is good. Sorry to anyone I missed. Looking
forward to the August WES so I can do it all again. 73 for now! Sean



KLUW Operated by: Russ, 1702T from NE

Nice sprint tonight - lots of participation. Hope everyone had a good time like I did.



KI4WXI Operated by: Michael, 6930 from TN

I had just got back from football practice when I started. 20 minuets left. Thanks Red for
my first SKCC contact.

73,
Mike, KI4WXI



K1PUB Operated by: Chas, 4101T from MA

First sprint I've done in several months. 20 M sounded dead so I started off on 40 M,
which was pretty busy. Checked 20M about 0120Z and it had come to life, so I spent the
rest of the sprint there. Worked several west coast stations, but very surprised to work
AF2Z in NJ. Weird propagation.

73, Charlie (Chas)



W9CC Operated by: Larry, 469T from IN

20M was not so hot, but 40M seemed very good except for the QRN of which there was
plenty. Lots of fun. This was my first time using QRP. TNX for the QSO's guys! 73!
Now to try and get some QSL's, please.



WA1LWS Operated by: Hans, 1933T from MD

Sat down at the radio and heard no signals. My antenna had fallen. Took me 25 minutes
to get the ladder out, climb up on the roof, and re-attach the wire. I usually call CQ,
but this time it was all S&P. Bands here in Maryland were noisy, but not too bad. Its
been a lot worse recently on other days. All in all, a good sprint. Thanks everyone.



W3RT Operated by: Red, 3237T from PA

Had some good fun with this SKS! Started out on 20m, then to 40m. Ran some q's on 7.111
and made a pretty good tally.
Used Dick's logging program for 95f the q's...now to get it to print!
Station was the '940 at 85 watts & used the Annie and the Flameproof for most of the
contacts. Great to see so many newer SKCC memebers. Lots of good to great fists on the
air tonight. Hope to get on more often. Thanks to all that was able to work with me.

73, Red, W3RT in PA. SKCC 3237T



WA5VQM Operated by: Mark, 58T from TX

A lot of thunderstorms in the area made it a challenge but it was still fun. Nice to work
some new folks as well as familiar friends. Made contacts on 20 & 40, including up in the
40M novice band. Tried 15 but heard nothing. 80 was just too noisy to be useful. Looking
forward to the next one. 73, Mark

K1NV Operated by: Jon, 2609T from NV

I spent the whole Sprint on 20M since conditions were pretty good and the noise minimal.
Nothing was heard on 15M this time. My first QSO at 0000Z was with K5YQF, Cecil, in TX.
Propagation to the midwest from Nevada was good and i even had a QSO with non-member
K0HL/M in ND. Ken would be a welcome addition to SKCC for the W.A.S. seekers. K4FP,
Sandy in FL, and I tried to fit in a final QSO at the bell but ran out of time. See you
next Sprint, Sandy!

I moved along at a pretty good pace, but missed some weak callers due to adjacent QRM as
the band changed. I try to dig out the QRP stations, but it is sometimes difficult. New
England was coming through quite well in the last hour with WA1NTA, KO1U, N1FJ, and K1PUB
(all in MA) making it into the log. Canadians worked were VE3HNE, Walt, and VE5BCS, Harold.



K4FP Operated by: Sandy, 6761 from FL

Lots of QRM tonight



NUMP Operated by: Bill, 659T from MO

Stayed on 40 meters most of the time and it was noisy but there was some good signals
being heard. Went up to 20 meters to work W0MSM. Needed to check his AGC out...A fairly
close neighbor...HI...I had a great time...73 from the metropolis of Garden City,
MO...Bill 659T




KK7S Operated by: Chad, 6730C from WA

Ouch! 30 QSOs in the 1st hour but only 12 in the 2nd. It seemed like everyone left 20m,
but I couldn't break through on 40m. Lots of fun anyway. See you all next time.



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

I started 30 minutes late because of CRS syndrome, but a full two hours might actually
have been too much fun for this OF. Signals were good on 20 meters, so I just stayed
there to work a bunch of old friends and make some new ones. The true highlight, though,
was getting to say thanks on-the-air to NT9K for the purty pump key I enjoy using so much.

73 to all, and see you next time.

Gary, K9ZMD/6
Palmdale, CA







W7GVE Operated by: Ed, 729T from AZ

Late start-- but still enjoyed it--- there are sure so nice sounding fists out there.



NUYN Operated by: Dennis, 5753 from MO

Rough going the first hour--nobody was answering my calls. The second hour was better.
Thanks to Jon K1NV for NV and new nr. Also thanks to Don N7EF, Roger K3TM, and Jay W9LW
for new numbers. Only 5 more and I'll have a C. Good to work Sean VA5LF on 20 meters and
Tom KU9RK and Gene K8EE on 40. 73.



WA9VEE Operated by: Wayne, 4844C from WI

Nice busy sprint



KA2KGP Operated by: Tom, 1494C from NY

Well, 80 m. was closed down & nailed shut by QRN here in WNY. A few QSO's made on 40 m.
but most on 20 m. A nice sprint, CU all next time. 73



WB8ENE Operated by: Art, 3773T from OH

Nice strong signals on 40, which is where I spent most of my time. Thanks for the
contacts. See you in the WES. 73, Art



N1FJ Operated by: Frandy, 6937 from MA

First time using a straight key in decades! The Speed-X I used was my key in 1952. Contest was fun, members
welcoming, and a consolation after bombing out in the QRP Fox Hunt.



KQ1P Operated by: John, 5068 from ME

Good conditions, worked several new members- great to see SKCC continue to grow. 73.



WB5UAA Operated by: Guy, 6711 from TX

My appologies for uncompleted QSOs due to QSB and QRM. I look forward to next month.
Guy, WB5UAA



VE3FUJ Operated by: Brion, 4936C from ON

I started out on 20 but didn't do so very well, so I switched to 40 after about 1/2 hr and
did much better there. I enjoyed this Sprint and thanks to that pulled my week signal out
of the mud. See you all in the next Sprint VE3FUJ Brion



W4TMW Operated by: Tom, 6184 from GA

I started off on 40 but it was rather crowded along with persistant QRN, so went to 20.
However, after losing 2 Q's in a row due to severe (deep and prolongeed)QSB, I realized
why everyone was on 40.... :0), so I went back to 40 and stayed there for the rest of the
SKS.

Larry(W9CC), tnx for the qso, I know it was past the cutoff time but I really needed the
contact for my Tribune....getting close now.

Another Grrreat SKCC event, I really enjoyed it!

73





KE5YUM Operated by: Terry, 5173T from OK

Resubmittal. I was not aware that I worked the Special SKCC member. Thanks. Terry



N2JNZ Operated by: George, 2836T from NY

Had a fun time again !!! First half hour calling CQ got 14 Qs !!! Then S+P for a while.
Worked a lot of new people and some old buds. Great fists all over the bands !! Great to
work Rick , K0KEX !! And this time Randy , KB4QQJ we couldnt miss ...hehe !!! Best of all
at 0159 I got to work Gordon , N6WK , one of my bestest buddies !! Snuck that one in in
the nick of time !!! Rig here a Kenwood TS 930s , 100 watts to a ZeroFive 40 meter
monoband vertical with 60 radials. Thanks all to the greatest bunch of ops I know !!!!



VE5BCS Operated by: Harold, 3946C from SK

the contest was fun and the band got better as it when on. tnx to all. cul 73



K5UI Operated by: Jim, 2980 from TX

First time in over a year I have actually remembered the Sprint and did not have a work-
related teleconference during the event. Good sigs, especially on 20M. Worked a lot of
6000's, including several Centurions and Tribunes. Need to get my own act in gear. Lots
of fun. Kenwood TS-940S 100w to ground-mounted 6BTV vertical, Vibroplex Deluxe bug
(mercifully equipped with Bug-Tamer!).



WA5BUC Operated by: Fred, 6692 from TX

40 was busy -- just had problems getting someone to come back to my call. Answered one CQ
from W4HEX/M. Found out he was not in the contest but had a 30 minute QSO. Then worked
K3TM and KB2RAW. Still, always fun to pound the brass. Rig: FT-817 at 5 watts to a 40
meter EFHWA. 72's and 73's to all. Fred - WA5BUC



W3NP Operated by: Dave, 3182T from WV

After listening on 20 a bit before the sprint began and not hearing much I did the entire
thing on 40. I thought it would be neat to run my Century 22 at 5 watts but 5 qso's into
the event I quickly found out that the direct conversion receiver with each signal heard
on both sides of zero beat was a bit too much even for its rather effective filter so I
switched to the little Argonaut 515 and 208A filter shown in the background of the picture
and finished up with that. The little Century is fun for a little laid back CW, but for a
"contest" type event it showed how much SKCC activity really was on the band - a lot!! 40
was full of SKS activity, even up in the 7115 area of the band. Used my Vibroplex
Presentation bug and had a great time. The fastest 2 hours of the month!!

Ten Tec Century 22 and Argonaut 515 with Vibroplex Presentation Bug



K7FEST Operated by: Allen, 6008 from WA

My first SKS in which I actually worked someone! Turns out the station was only 3.5 miles
away. Had fun and hope to do a little better next time. 73, Allen



K2RFP Operated by: Dick, 2099T from NY

I went to a community concert featuring a tribute to Rod Stewart. Pretty good but
sneaked out early to play a little radio. Got in the last 20 minutes of the sprint.

Until next time, 73.




N2QFD Operated by: Mal, 4045 from NY

Started Sprint with a great QSO wid Bruce W1WQG, talked him out, then moved on for the
points. Found out quickly that there was blood in the water and had to use my filter.
Seemed like all civility was lost below 7.100Mhz! But again a fantastic nite and a great
time at the Cootie Key. Last QSO was wid HANS WA1LWS, Sri that one land call sign threw
me! TNX all.

My HB Cootie in action again



KKEX Operated by: Rick, 5220T from MO

K0KEX Operated by: Rick, 5220T from MO

Another SKS in the log, got a late start but had some very nice QSO's. 40M was noisy
here but some good signals from the east & north. I had a friend looking on while I
was at the key...I took time to explain what each QSO was about...when I heard N2JNZ
that was a bonus, Thanks George...in the last 1/2 hour we tried 80M and worked N8AMM,
thanks, Don for the two bands tonight and thanks to all for a nice Sprint event.
73 Rick
p.s. my friend shows an interest in ham radio...will keep working on that.




K4DEY Operated by: Al, 3935 from AL

Thanks to Hank, KC3QU for my first SKS contact. Al, K4DEY



N4QLB Operated by: Michael, 6650T from AL

Must have had a direct path to Oklahoma when SKS started. Worked three in a row on 20
meters. K5DP,N5ZV and KE5YUM
Notable signals to my location were W9SAY, IL and W5KDM, MS.
QRN on 40 meters was difficult. This was my 91st day since making my first ever CW QSO.
Love this mode and SKCC. Going to add a bug and a sideswipper to my arsenal soon. Thanks to
all that participated and look for me on the spot page. I still need DE to finish my all
band SKCC WAS.
Also, check out my other favorite mode at www.feldhellclub.org We also have monthly 2 hr
sprints.




N8BB Operated by: Werner, 5433T from MI

Too many things going on and just not in the mindset of any radio stuff. Hate when that
happens but certainly the hot weather has an effect on me. Tnx to the 4 I did work and I
will return with a vengance later this year, Just had to get a log in and keep the
activity going even if for a little score,hi.



KE7YTE Operated by: Tom, 6447 from AZ

I fired up the flagpole first with 5w but no luck tonight so cranked it up to 100w and
then was able to work 20M just fine. Thanks for the fun.



KB4QQJ Operated by: Randy, 3508T from NC

Wow, bands were great! I heard Gordon but never could make the contact. Ran my 817 at 1
watt into a portable/qrp OCF dipole I've been working on. A 4:1-1:1 switchable balun
allows operation on 40/20/15/ and 10 meters with no tuner. Used the Minute Man portable
for the entire event.
I'm enjoying the surge in homebrewed "Trail Friendly" equipment and operators. Strongest
signal was Dave, K2JVB at 60 over!! Watch out Bert, Dave was shaking the east coat
mountains hi hi. Dave was also the highest SKCC number I've worked to date. Number 6917.
Can't believe SKCC has grown that much. A fine group we have here. Hope to see you all in
the next sprint, be it Mystery or WES. 73, Randy_KB4QQJ


The Minute Man will be available VERY soon. No color YET :-)



KK5NA Operated by: Joe, 1923T from TX

It was a bit noisy here with local storms and I was only able to get on for part of the
Sprint...but as always I had fun. Thanks for pulling me out guys.
Rig K3 and Antenna EDZ.



KE4KY Operated by: Glenn, 2622T from KY

Wish I would have had more time....new puppy in the house....and the XYL was gone.

Good time though!!!



AF3Z Operated by: Jim, 3034C from PA

Thanks to everyone. It was good to get back in the SKS this month. 20M & 40M worked well for me here in PA.



AA9L Operated by: Rich, 1226 from WI

My first SKCC Sprint. Guess I need more practice with the Vibroplex. Better luck next
time.



K3MSB Operated by: Mark, 5965C from PA

Had fun as usual. Picked up VT (KB1ODO) and CO (N0TA) for my SKCC WAS. During the
sprint I had a rag chew with John KL2AX in Craig AK on 20M; he wasn't in the sprint, but
he was running a bug of some kind. I was banging away as usual with my J-38 and tube gear.



WB4OFT Operated by: John, 958 from NC

This my first SKS. Score not that high but you've got to start somewhere. Got 16 new
numbers toward my SKCC awards though. Looking forward to more SKS and WES.



K4CNW Operated by: Jack, 2961T from SC

Only able to make a few QSO's due to having heavy thunderstorms during the first hour and
then again the last half hour of the sprint. It was nice to meet a few members for the
first time. Hope conditions will be better next month.





K4SC Operated by: Chuck, 6669 from AZ

MY FIRST SPRINT. ENJOYED IT AND WILL BE ON AGAIN NEXT MONTH!



KA1XC Operated by: John, 5188T from MA

I was out for most of the sprint but I was able to make the last half hour. I made 4
QSO's on 20M then switched to 40M for two more. The last QSO was with Ken WI1B #6866 who
is in my town of Andover, MA (only about a mile away from me, 599+30!) and is new to
SKCC. After SKS we continued our CW QSO for another 45 minutes. Welcome Ken!



K4JPN Operated by: Steve, 2402T from GA

Conditions seemed pretty good, but then a local thunderstorm came on and needed to
disconnect antennas and shut down computer, after only 16 minutes on the Sprint. Oh,
well wait till next month. 73, Steve K4JPN



W2DEC Operated by: Urb, 6668T from NJ

Highlight of the event was working Gordon N6WK SKCC # 3, my lowest number yet.
