WA1VIL Operated by: Greg, 443T from MA

Thanks Russ K0LUW for my one contact in this sprint....first QSO with my new TenTec
R40/20! Spent too much time trying to get the swr down on the trap dipole in the attic and
finally overcame the fear of blown finals with about 10 minutes left in the sprint.
Funny, I got a better report than usual from NE with 4 watts and a "bum" antenna than I
usually do with 100 watts and a better outdoor skywire. 73 all-I'll get you next time!



WA5BUC Operated by: Fred, 6692 from TX

Great fun tonight. Worked two bonus stations: K9SKC for points and N6WK -- welcome back
Gordon!



N8XE Operated by: Jason, 3806T from OH

Called CW the whole time on 40M. Only able to get about 90 minutes this time. My 1946 Blue Racer was used for this
sprint. Can't wait till next month!



WA1AR Operated by: Alan, 4079T from MA

Fun sprint. Got K9SKC right up front on 20 and again on 40. Some good CW fist out there
tonight.

Alan



KACSW Operated by: Jim, 3741T from MN

Thanks to everyone.

KA0CSW



N9QU Operated by: Leo, 3464T from WI

S&P not very productive tonight. But the fun is in the hunt. Thanks to all. Hope the
QRN is less next month. 73



WA2JSG Operated by: Curt, 3018T from NJ

Nice sprint, as always.



KD5MMM Operated by: Phil, 4209T from TX

Lots of signals heard tonight, wish I had more time.
73 all ..



K9PMV Operated by: Jerry, 1438 from IL

Around 00:30 Z had to QRT for a T Storm. Got back on 1/2 hour later when all was clear.
Great fun as always.



K4ZGB Operated by: Tom, 796T from AL

Could only make the last 15 minutes tonight.



WA1LWS Operated by: Hans, 1933T from MD

Conditions were terrible here in Maryland with high QRN. I did get 20 multipliers. Not
bad for 27 QSOs. Thanks Vern, W9HLY, for Indiana at 0159Z.



WSZV Operated by: Eldon, 4999T from MO

storms in area and bad static but got a few and had fun. ready for wes agn Eldon



W5ZR Operated by: Bert, 2931T from LA

Thanks to all for the contacts. 20M was fair, 40M was good, 80M was noisy. Only DX as
YS1GR. 73 Bert



VE3FUJ Operated by: Brion, 4936C from ON

VE3FUJ I started out on 20, it didn't sound too hot but there were stations, to my
surprise, I got a couple of long hauls, 20 seemed to disappear, about 30 min's into the
game. Then I switched to 40, the noise level was fairly high at this Qth. In total I made
8 Qso's, there were some I missed I'm sure, Sorry. I had the usual fun. Thanks to all who
pulled my 5W out of the noise. Brion



WA2OQJ Operated by: Jim, 5941T from NY

Rig: Yaesu Ft-817nd @ 1 watt Ant: Delta loop @ a whopping 5 feet! A lot of fun as
usual...really happy with the test 20 mtr horizontal delta loop I have been experimenting
with, I have been working lots of DX on 20 with it and tonight it gave me the most stations
I have ever worked on 20, including a new state for me (Tnx Paul NG7Z!)And Ed W7TVE tnx for
having a great pair of ears!!! ;-) on the negative side 40/80 which usually are my better
bands,despite the big signals, I only managed to break through the big boys for 2 Q's...1
per band....Tnx all! 72/73 Jim



KK6AW Operated by: Kelsey, 2806T from CA

I seldom submit scores but thought I would do so this time. Only 9 contacts but got one
from YS1IGR El Salvador # 6223. I used this Key (Photo) for the run. Oldest member #3
and Youngest #7077. 73 Kelsey KK6AW

My version of the new SKCC Minuteman Key. 2.5" x 1'. My Brother made it.



KE7ZVJ Operated by: Joe, 5267 from MT

Great time! 73



ACPR Operated by: Mike, 7033 from ND

That was really fun! In the two hours of my first SKS I worked exactly the same number of
qso's I had during my first WES in which I spent about 4 hours. I'm looking forward to
the next one! Still using the homebrew key (I'll retire it and go to something else once
I make WAS with it) :) 73, all.



W7GVE Operated by: Ed, 729T from AZ

20 died a sudden death with 30 mins to go but 40 was better than I expected... Mostly Ts
and Cs--- Its always good to work a new guy in this test.... Great fun as usual. -ED



WABGV Operated by: Slim, 5465T from MO

Qrn heavy here on 40 and 80. Heard Special station but didn't get to work him.
Tnx all for all the fun. de Slim



N4QLB Operated by: Michael, 6650T from AL

First 45 min on 20 meters then 40 meters for remaining. Notable stations were W5ZR,
VE5SG,W9SAY and NY6P. Quite a few new log entries for me. Thanks all for lots of fun.



K4JPN Operated by: Steve, 2402T from GA

Nothing heard on 20M and heavy QRN on 80M. 40M was the band tonight.
73, Steve K4JPN



NES Operated by: Mark, 6585T from MO

20 over 9...finished out on 40m with a few more..tnx to ys1gr Gary for a nice dx contact!
Was able to send my new callsign without putting the old one in HIHI !Great to hear
everyone again and will look fwd to the next time 73 Mark NE0S



KKI Operated by: Jack, 2370T from WI

Stayed on the "old novice portion" of 40 meters for the entire duration. QSOs were coming
pretty steady and even had time for a couple ragchews. Used the OMNI VII and my SKCC club
key. Thanks for all the contacts ... fun time...and the "glass arm" even held up well.
Catch you all again next month. 73, jack



NV9X Operated by: Jim, 1358T from IL

Only worked about one hour total due to severe weather. Still was gud time. Got one new T.
Worked a couple of other new ones. TU to my few contacts.



N3EIN Operated by: Matt, 6742 from PA

With the exception of K7TKT(thanks for ID Brian) on 20m it was an "East of the
Mississippi" Sprint for me on a very busy 80m and 40m. I let the big signals hold court,
working Bert in LA on 20m and planned to go back later, but 20m was finished by 0130Z.
Hoped to finish my C during the Sprint but need just a few more (who will be number 100?).
Thanks for a fun evening and I'll see you all soon. 73 Matt. Ten-Tec Century 21/G5RV
Lite/SKCC Pro Pump



VE3AKV Operated by: Bob, 5204T from ON

Hello to all...

I was doing well on 7.115 until the thunder and lightning started at about 1 hour into the
SKS. Hopefully others missed the storm that I got and managed some great numbers. 72/73 to
all and I hope to work SKS again next month.



KK7S Operated by: Chad, 6730C from WA

I could only work about 35 minutes of this one. Too much going on at home this evening.
I'm getting pretty good at holding the baby while operating. 20 meters was really
hopping at the beginning. Great to hear so much activity! See you next time.



NUMP Operated by: Bill, 659T from MO

Another great sprint. I worked only on 40 meters. We had some storms in the area making
some noise and making it hard for me to hear some stations and I apologize to those
stations that I could not pull out of the noise. I really enjoyed getting to work Bert,
F6HKA, during the sprint. Looking forward to the next one...73 Bill N0UMP 659T.

Yaesu FT-857D and 150 meter loop. Homebrew straight key




NUYN Operated by: Dennis, 5753C from MO

Had a ham club meeting which conflicted with SKS. Only had time for 1 contact. Thanks,
Alan WA1AR. 73.



N6EV Operated by: Paul, 3358T from CA

First SKS I've been able to fully participate in over a year.



KB4QQJ Operated by: Randy, 3508T from NC

WOW, can we say NOISE?? Bands must have been in good condition elseware. I got great
signal reports. But reception was very noisy here in NC. I ran my Icom 703 tonight at 5
watts and 10 watts to the doublet at 80 feet. Keys were the prototype Patriot and a 1954
Blue Racer Deluxe. Forty meters ran an S8 all night. I didn't hear a thing on 20 meters. I
switched to 80 meters with about 45 minutes left and had a decent run. It made my night to
work George, N2JNZ early. I was determined to work him before he goes QLF on us :-).
Thanks George, great fist! Strongest signal was AB1BW, George at 50 over. It was good to
see some non-members taking part in our event. I didn't think I was going to have time to
S&P for John with the club call, but he made my night by answering my CQ. Thanks John!! I
had to keep the 500 Hz filter in tonight (QRM) so I missed several calls that weren't
zero beat to me. Next time.
73 and BCNU. Randy_KB4QQJ



W1EJ Operated by: Ed, 1594T from MI

QRP from my Michigan QTH.



KD2JC Operated by: Joe, 710 from NJ

First SKS Sprint. Lots of stations. QRN a bit ruff on 40 and 20 meters here. Nice
hooking up with K9SKC near the end. 73 to all.




N4KGL Operated by: Greg, 5123T from FL

This was my first try at 1 watt. I had no problem as the bands were great. The highlight was
working Bert F6HKA for first time. That makes it 4616 miles per watt!



WB8ENE Operated by: Art, 3773T from OH

This was my first try at running only 1 Watt. It was a bit difficult on a few of the
contacts. Thanks to all of you for hanging in there and digging my signal out of the
noise. Maybe next time I'll crank it up to 5 Watts. 73, Art

Elecraft K3 @ 1 Watt



K9SKC Operated by: John, 3280 from GA

FT1000MP, AL811H, 500W, TH6DXX, zepp, dipole, inverted vee. Started on 20M which seemed
good to the W1, W2, northern W8/9, W0, Western W5, and W6/7 areas. But not too many
callers. 16 QSOs on 20. 40M seemed good almost everywhere, but some signals were quite
weak and there was some QRN. 39 QSOs on 40. We had thunderstorms in the vicinity.
Didn't go to 80 until almost the end. Signals seemed strong, but few callers. 6 QSOs on
80. Best DX was YS1GR on 20M. Thanks for the chance to be the bonus station and for all
QSOs. QSLs go via the club QSL manager KA3CTQ. I will send him a copy of the log. 73,
John, K4BAI.



KL7GLL Operated by: Gene, 1098T from VA

Back after a long absence; nice to hear the bands fill up with SK cw. Remember to listen
up and down at least 10 kcs from the calling frequency for weaker stations.



WB4OFT Operated by: John, 958 from NC

Another fine sprint. Picked up some new calls toward my Centurion. 73 and see you all
next month.

Schurr MMK Hand Key



W6UT Operated by: Dennis, 2417T from CA

Short run tonight. Had to be with kids. Fun while it lasted



KE5YUM Operated by: Terry, 5173T from OK

Great sprint as always. I started on 20 meters with my TS-520 and ended the event QRP
with my MFJ-9040 running 5 watts. Thanks to all that worked me.



WB5UAA Operated by: Guy, 6711 from TX

Boy! It was a ROARING start on 20M. The spectrum analyzer display on my IC756 looked
like a lightening strike centered on 14.050 as the second hand passed through 0000Z!
Pouncing and searching did not yeild good results for me this time around. Was only able
to break through 2 pileups on 20. 40 was a little easier. Only heard K4QPL on 80 but I
was too far down in the noise for him. Looking forward to the next sprint. Guy



W4TMW Operated by: Tom, 6184T from GA

Got a late start, but still had fun operating on 80,40,20. I did notice a bit of fast QSB
but generally speaking, the bands were in good shape, at least from GA. I never did run
across John, K4BAI..... in my own state of GA :0)!

ps- finally finished adding the center loading to my Off-Center-Fed-Dipole so it operates
on 6 bands now. 80,40,30,20,15,10. This is not my design, is labeled as CL-OCFD and
instructions can be seen on the ON4AA website.

73
Tom



AB1BW Operated by: George, 2468T from CT

The bands were pretty good for this one even though 40 and 80 meters were a bit noisy.
Thanks, John, for the K9SKC contact on 40 meters and the bonus points. You did a great
job operating the club call. If it were not for the club sprints, the bands would be
dead. Nice job, everyone. 73, George



WA5VQM Operated by: Mark, 58T from TX

Got a late start but N6WK was my first contact so I knew things were going to be good.
Gordon had quite a pileup of folks welcoming him back into action! 20 slammed shut after a
bit but despite heavy QRN signals on 40 and 80 were strong. Apologies to K5AMG, who went
from 599 to unreadable in a few seconds- odd propagation. Managed to work the club call on
2 bands! Thanks to all, 73.



W9HLY Operated by: Vern, 6672 from IN

Slim pickuns......



NG7Z Operated by: Paul, 802T from WA

Finally had a chance to work the SKS again after many months absent. Good to work so many
of you again. I was pretty burned out on contesting after the WA Salmon Run last weekend
so I didn't burn up the ether tonight. K9SKC was booming in here on 40M as was K0LUW.
Tuesday nights are busy with other obligations but I can get in an hour and a half at
least. 73 Paul NG7Z



KA2KGP Operated by: Tom, 1494C from NY

Another nice SKS sprint with a good turnout. Bands were decent and conditions good here
in WNY. Thanks to all who participated & 73.



W8KI Operated by: Russ, 6973 from MI

Had a prior commitment with our local Radio Club; SRI I missed it...
It would have been fun and, Lord knows I need the practice (hi)



YS1GR Operated by: Gary, 6223 from El Salvadore

It was fun, but band conditions are not great for me at that time. 20M is shutting down
and 40M has not opened. Tnx's to all who had the paitence to work me.
73 de YS1GR



N2JNZ Operated by: George, 2836T from NY

Company here for 45 mins so missed out on a bunch. Happy to have Gary , YS1GR come back
to my CQ on 40 meters !!! Was lazy here so I ran 100 watts. Stayed on 40 but strange
conditions....... seemed a bit long. Hi Randy (KB4QQJ) !! Bet you guessed I wasnt running
QRP ... hehe. Nice to work Jason , N8XE and old buddy Jack , KK0I !!! Lots of numbers
with no C or T which is great. Hopefully I'll be recovered enough for the Oct. WES and
SKS !!! Thanks all !!!!!...... Rig here a Kenwood 930s , 100 watts to a ZeroFive 40m
vertical and 1964 Blue Racer.

Temporary Setup .............. :)



K4UFT Operated by: Ted, 4289T from SC

As my Mall Rat teenage niece would say in her Valley Girl voice, "Dewd ... y' know ...
like Bummerrrrrrr ... y' know ..."

Got in the last 25 minutes on 40M with three QSOs. 15M and 20M were dead and 80M had S9+
line noise and the FT-950 noise blanker was useless.

Here's hoping next month will be more productive.

Usual FT-950 @50W to homebrew vertical. Navy FP key.



N6WK Operated by: Gordon, 3T from CA

Had a blast working the Sprint. Had to stop for dinner though around 01:15 UTC
The pile up on me was intense at times. Good to be back playing radio.

73,
gordon



W8JRA Operated by: Jeff, 4757T from OH

My first SKCC DX -- F6HKA on 40 meters. Thanks, Bert!



K7FME Operated by: Fred, 5015 from NV

first sprint worked. will be back for many more. only worked a few min. next time I will
be ready for the full period. tnxs and 73'sw Fred K7FME



K3MSB Operated by: Mark, 5965C from PA

Great Sprint. 20M Was in excellent shape; 40M wasn't bad, but a lot of QRN. 80M Was
so-so. Worked Mike AC0PR to get North Dakota for my SKCC WAS, and worked Mike WU2D
running his ARC-5 transmitter.



WA4WLI Operated by: Bob, 6007 from AL

Re-checked and double checked log for this new score.



VA5LF Operated by: Sean, 4507T from SK

Almost completely forgot about the sprint. I had already made other plans, so by the time
things got started, I was about to shut down. Maybe I'll remember next month...



KB1NHV Operated by: Art, 2775 from VT

Was only able to work (4) stations, 2 on 20m and 2 on 40m but enjoyed the experience
again. QRN was very bad. Picked up a new state ND (AC0PR) which was my first ND on 20
meters. Look forward to the next one.



NT9K Operated by: Bill, 1926T from FL

I fell asleep at the key during the sprint. I was sick, but determined to make at least
one contact, so I could submit an entry. When I fell sleep, my head dropped and I split my
head open on the edge of the desk. No damage to the desk and lucky I didn't land on any of
my keys! Woke me up real quick and I made my qso and went on to bed. Wish I could have
really participated, but next month will be better. For my one qso, I used the SKCC Pro-pump.
Thanks everyone for letting me know in QSO, when you're using one of my keys. I think I
have worked 23 new club keys so far! I'm looking forward to more and that first DX QSO
with one!
Until next time, 73. Bill NT9K - SKCC 1926T - Melbourne FL..



AF2Z Operated by: Drew, 2082T from NJ

Got a few on 20 & 40 then spent the final 45 mts on 80m. 80 was a bit noisy and the
signals were not great but it was active enough. Rig: Elecraft K3 running 10 watts to 100
ft random wire up 30 ft; Junker straight key.



K1PUB Operated by: Chas, 4101T from MA

Lots of activity, but I couldn't seem to get a good run going. Started on 20M, then moved
to 40M, the 80M for the last 10 minutes. Thank you Bert for three bands. John, K9SKC, was
doing a great job working the mini-pile up. Missed all my usual QSOs in Massachusetts,
although I heard WA1AR weakly on 40M.



AC2C Operated by: Ron, 2748T from MD

A rare appearance in an SKS or me. Our local club's monthly meeting is scheduled for the
4th tuesday of the month. The only time it doesn't coincide with the SKS is when the
first of the month falls on a Wednesday.
