WA5BUC Operated by: Fred, 6692 from TX

Down a few Q's from last month, but still great fun. The loudest signal by far was K1NV.
Was able to work NV, MT, CA, and Canada. Rig: FT-817ND at 5w to a 20 meter EFHWA. 72's es
73's.



N2JNZ Operated by: George, 2836T from NY

VERY tough nite for 1 watt !!! QRN and QSB were very bad. Thanks to all who worked me !!!
Sorry Bob , KK5J we almost made it !! Thanks to Russ , K0LUW and Tony , W4FOA for such
great ears !! Had fun but tuff going on 40 meters tonite !!!



N9QU Operated by: Leo, 3464T from WI

Had to sprint around congratulary birthday phone calls so not many QSOs, but heard lots
of signals on both 40m & 80m. Thanks for the QSOs and the fun. 73



WB8SDA Operated by: Carmen, 2339 from OH

Maybe a personal best. Conditions were great in spite of a storm passing through
Northeast Ohio earlier today....Thanks for the contacts.



NTA Operated by: John, 2826T from CO

Nice evening - thanks for the contacts. 20m started off well, but didn't seem to be many
stations. Spent the rest of the time on 40m, and worked a bunch of pretty weak signals.
Suprised at all of the East coast and Canadian stations. K3/100, vertical & wire
antennas, K2RFP logging software.



WA4WLI Operated by: Bob, 6007 from AL

Noisy bands. CQ'd on 160 but no replies. Fun bunch of hams in this one. Thanks.



KD8JHJ Operated by: Mike, 4877C from OH

Finally remembered to get in on some SKS fun. Thanks for the QSOs. Used the NT9K Pro-
Pump. See you all next time 73



WA2JSG Operated by: Curt, 3018T from NJ

Very nice sprint. All my contacts on 40m. Thanks to Mark K3MSB/3 for DE.
Rig hr IC-7000, 75 watts to a vertical (elevated).



NG7Z Operated by: Paul, 802T from WA

Decided to use QRP this time. Didn't get started until 0100Z and just did S&P. Stayed on
40M the whole time and just plunked away trying to raise some stations. Sure is a lot of
fun when the other guy hears you! Used my GHD504 this time. Put the SKCC key on the shelf
for a while to let it cool off after several months of usage. I like looking at it and
showing it off to guests. 73 and CU in the WES. Paul NG7Z



W9LW Operated by: Jay, 6222T from IN

Today's severe thunderstorms left our house without power until 0145Z but I still managed
two contacts before the sprint ended. Coul dhave made several more but only called CQ and
only got two answers.



K6KQV Operated by: Bill, 2626 from CA

Really a nice sprint. Great fun.
Thanks to all for making the sprint a success.



KD5MMM Operated by: Phil, 4209T from TX

enjoyed it.

KD5MMM ..



ACPR Operated by: Mike, 7033T from ND

Good Sprint, I only got to work about 45 mins. though. I'm thinking I should stop CQing,
ears are terrible! Thanks for the patience of all who worked me! I'm looking forward to
the next WES, got a different HB to use. 73 all.



AB7KT Operated by: Ken, 4500T from NV

Did all my QSOs on two freqs./one band.
Only called CQ one time and no one answered me. Had a number of pile-ups and had to ask
several times for repeats - sorry, I am not a DXer and don't have my ears tuned for pile-
ups.
Great Sprint.



W9CC Operated by: Larry, 469T from IN

Fun as always. The QRN and QSB were not kind however.



WDECO Operated by: Mitch, 6893T from MO

Not too many contacts but had a good time once again. Used the NT9K SKCC Pro Pump Club
Key. What a nice key!!! Yaesu FT-950 100 W into OCF Dipole.

Did get to work two MO boys - WA0BGV (Slim) and K0KEX (Rick) back-to-back on 80. Didn't
hear KB2RAW (Bill) this time. Bill, where were you????

And I did get to tease WB0QQT (Steve) from Nebraska about Mizzou winning in Lincoln this
weekend!!!!

73 de Mitch



K4ZGB Operated by: Tom, 796T from AL

I had to QRT for thunderstorms, so missed the last 30 minutes.



W3NP Operated by: Dave, 3182T from WV

Absolutely horrible conditions here in WV this evening. Approaching storm front with
tornado warnings up for later at night and a steady din of QRN. I probably should have
run my Omni 6 Plus at 100W but wanted to try out my just built meter, so I stuck with my
Argo V at about 5 watts. There were some big signals but for the better part most were
just above or at the noise level. A lot of one way condx. I would call a loud station
several times and not get a reply, then I would call CQ and get several replies that I
could just barely copy. I started out on 40 but soon went to 80 where the signals were
stronger and did a bit better there. It was still fun and I enjoyed working the regulars
plus a few new stations. Come on cold winter nights!!

New WM2 QRP Wattmeter at it's first SKCC event



KF7EST Operated by: Allen, 6008 from WA

My 2nd Sprint entry and a personal best. Still getting the hang of sprinting. Tnx to all that heard me. N0TA and W6UT -
tried to get you but was not successful. Maybe next time! 73



VE3WMB Operated by: Michaelbabinea, 120 from ON

Noisy band conditions on 40m and 80m here but I stuck with it for 10 QSOs. Thanks to everyone who worked me ...
I am now at 75/100 towards my Centurian Award! Station : Ten Tec Argonaut V at about 20W. Antenna G5RV and
Hustler 4BTV. Keys used: a 1940 McElroy model 600 Deluxe Bug and a 1942 Vibroplex Zephyr Bug (for slightly faster

Hadn't had any frustration in my life lately so I decided to run QRP. 20M was dead so
went to 40M. 4 QSO's in hour and a half. Didn't hear a lot of strong stations.
Thunderstorm came up 15 Minutes before end of the sprint so that iced the cake for me.

Icom 703+ @5 Watts to 30' end-fed indoor wire. Vibroplex "Code Mite" key.

To heck with this ... next month I'm winding the FT-950 up to 100 Watts and running a
bunch of wire to a tree.




NES Operated by: Mark, 6585T from MO

NUYN Operated by: Dennis, 5753C from MO

Didn't hear any stations from the north or the northeast. Mostly, I heard stations from
the west and south. 40M general class frequencies were noisy here, but seemed to carry
signals well. Thanks to Jim KK7YJ for new state of MT. 73.



WABGV Operated by: Slim, 5465T from MO

Nice Sprint! Too short! Worked some of my Missouri friends K0KEX - WD0EC0 - NE0S - N0UMP

K6CSL Operated by: Bert, 4486 from CA

Good band conitions this evening. A real pleasure. Bert, K6CSL



K9PMV Operated by: Jerry, 1438 from IL

Great fun as always. See you at the next one. (Glad my antennas stayed up during the wind
storm!)



KKEX Operated by: Rick, 5220T from MO

Interesting conditions tonight, Started on 40M,noise levels were high but signals seemed to
hold steady. After a local VHF net at 0030Z I went to 80M where I stayed the rest of the
sprint. The evening was filled with Q's from old friends and some new op's/numbers.
Thanks to all for answering my CQ's, you made my evening...73 from Missouri



VE3FAL Operated by: Fred, 50 from ON

Was playing with the Century 21. High winds and rain playing havoc on everything today.

K1NV Operated by: Jon, 2609T from NV

It was good to be back for a weekday sprint. Nothing was heard on 15M, so 20M was the
band of choice for the first hour. WL7WH was the last man standing there, so I moved to
40M where the activity level was high. After grabbing a few contacts by the
search-and-pounce method, I found a hole in the QRM and finished the activity at a pretty
good rate. It was good to work Van, W7IEX, in the rare state of Nevada toward the end.

There are a lot of Tribunes and Centurions these days. I noted some discussion of this on
the internet discussion group and new challenges may have to be found for eager SKCC'ers.
I have been waiting to work an SKCC Wyoming station for three years to earn an SKCC
W.A.S. honor, but no dice again. Maybe there will be a holiday present in November or
December.

Missed the September, 2010 sprint due to road trip to SD, ND, and other points east.



W4TMW Operated by: Tom, 6184T from GA

Another great SKS night. 15M was open but there didn't seem to be any skcc activity so I
moved on to 20. Ended up on 80M but since there was a storm front moving through, there
was plenty of QRN. It seemed to me like most bands were Looong with no shortage of VE5's
7's and W6's. I looked and looked for the bonus station but never found him.

Tnx to all for the contacts,
73



W7GVE Operated by: Ed, 729T from AZ

Fun as always--- Out here in the west it would be nice of 20 would stay open longer--
worked 3 NV stations--- usually get none from there--- you just never know how these
sprints will go... ED



NUMP Operated by: Bill, 659T from MO

Great sprint. Lots of fun. Looking forward to the next one. Running my FT-857D, 160 mtr
loop and homebrew key...73 from Garden City, MO....Bill 659T N0UMP


My homebrew key....Bill N0UMP



WA1VIL Operated by: Greg, 443T from MA

Real noisy here tonight-felt the need to use the TS480 at 100 watts. Wasted too much good
operating time checking on the Celtics home opener. Always fun and thanks for the contacts!



W9HLY Operated by: Vern, 6672C from IN

80 was solid. Twas fun.



K7TKT Operated by: Brian, 6695 from ID

Had fun but conditions were poor here, especially on 40. Thanks (and apologies) to those
who worked me. I've been off the air lately and it really shows in both my ear and
fist. I didn't realize I could get this bad so quickly. Special thanks to Kate
(K6HTN), who was very patient. Also exciting to work Alaska this month thanks to Bob
(WL7WH).

I'm still learning and need to be more consistent with air time. I'll be making a point
of getting on the air daily between now and the WES so hopefully some of you can help me
get back into shape :-) 73, Brian





NV9X Operated by: Jim, 1358T from IL

Stayed on 40 whole time. Hoped to do better. TU SKCC.




KB1NHV Operated by: Art, 2775 from VT

Enjoyed the sprint again although I was only able to work 5 stations. Was nice to hear
some of the stations I have heard and contacted previously. QRN was quite significant on
40 meters. Look forward to the next one again.



KD2JC Operated by: Joe, 710 from NJ

Another enjoyable SPrint. Bands a bit noisy. Nothing for me on 20 meters. Running a K2
at 80w and a Ham-Key HK-3M. 73 and thanks to all.



WA9VEE Operated by: Wayne, 4844C from WI

Spent some time late on 80, nothing heard altho qsos were going on, but no contest. Sorry
those 3 I could not copy.



KE5YUM Operated by: Terry, 5173T from OK

A great sprint as always. I stayed on 20 for the first hour and switched to 40. Thanks
to all that worked me. Terry



N8BB Operated by: Werner, 5433T from MI

Qrp just not cutting it lately from here. Worked Laura NT3Y 6911, very nice cw.
Hope for better conditions next sprint and WES.



KQ1P Operated by: John, 5068 from ME

Only able to be on for one hour. Pretty good conditions overall. Worked some folks that I
haven't heard for months. Thanks KD8JHJ for trying to pull me out of the noise, we will
have better luck another time. 73



N3EIN Operated by: Matt, 6742C from PA

A bit of a slow start on 20m logging only one QSO with Chadd KK7S before moving on to 40m
for a few. I spent most of the evening on 80m with good signals from NY,NJ,GA and NC.
Strongest signal was John N3WT in MD. I didn't hear the usual big signals this time, only
Russ K0LUW and then wasn't able to squeeze in. No matter, as plenty of great OPS to work
nearby....I just ran out of time! See you all at the November WES. 73 Matt, Ten-Tec

K2PAY Operated by: Jerry, 4304T from NY






KK7S Operated by: Chad, 6730C from WA

Bands were surprisingly good from here. Only got to work about half of the time. Lots
of fun. See you next time!



WB8ENE Operated by: Art, 3773T from OH

Got started a little late, but I also stayed until 10:00 this time. Looking forward to
the earlier start time next month. Lots of fun as usual. Thanks for two bands John,
N3WT. 73 to all, Art

My new straight key.



K3MSB/3 Operated by: Mark, 5965C from DE

Glad to put Delaware on the air for an SKS. Will try to do it again during the winter.




KD5JHE Operated by: Jerry, 1976T from MS

Glad to hear a bunch of stations on the air for SKS. Band conditions seemed good on 40m
(my only band this time). Wish I had worked harder for more qso's. 73.



K4NVJ Operated by: Joe, 393 from AL

Long skip on 40. Good condx overall.



NT9K Operated by: Bill, 1926T from FL

Strange propagation. I didn't work any members from the North East. Most contacts were out
west. Got some of the harder states, ID, ND and IA. Nice to catch Dennis W6UT again. I
only worked the first hour before I gave up the ghost and went to bed. Can't wait for the
time to change again, so I can work the full 2 hours. I'm feeling much better and will be
on the air a lot more in the coming months. I hope to work some of you in the Zombie
Shuffle on Friday?
Until next time, 73. Bill NT9K..




AF2Z Operated by: Drew, 2082T from NJ

Condx were pretty noisy due regional storms. 80m turned out to be the most active band for
me but contacts there were limited to eastern states. Only one western QSO: Carl W7ZYV in
CA on 40m. Had fun, as always. My rig: Elecraft K3 at 10 watts; wire antenna 100 ft long x
30 ft high; Junker straight key.




VE5BCS Operated by: Harold, 3946C from SK

I tryed qrp as was portable at club station and my ft 817. Band at start was very busy I
sure need a filter for this rig. I enjoyed c u on wes harold



K5YQF Operated by: Cecil, 1820T from TX

Thanks to K3MSB/3 for DE; a new state for my WAS.



K5ENA Operated by: John, 3045T from OK

Always enjoy our sprints.

73,
John, K5ENA



KU8L Operated by: Curt, 5380T from MI

Had some other work to do so only spent a little while on the sprint while multi-tasking.
Conditions seemed pretty good on the only band I worked..40M. Using a newly repaired
FT-ONE. Pretty cool to use Yaesu's flagship rig from 1982.




K1PUB Operated by: Chas, 4101T from MA

First SKS with my new K3/100. Very slow start on 20 M, took 20 min to make 4 QSOs. Thanks
W6UT for pulling me out of the mud. Moved to 40M, then 80M, but none of the bands seemed
very good. Of course the fact that one end of my doublet is still down probably wasn't
helping any.... Still, had fun as usual. Gotta fix the antenna though, just waiting for
the leaves to come of the trees.



KK5J Operated by: Bob, 6947 from OK

40 meters was tough, especially on QRP stations. Lots of QSB. Had fun!



KC2EGL Operated by: Michael, 553T from PA

I only had a half hour to operate during the SKS. I took my TS-2000 for a test run (K3Y
will soon be upon us and I will need 100W for the event.). I ran 100W during a sprint
for the first time in almost 4 years. Thanks to those who came back to my CQ. Had a
great time as ususal. CU during the next SKCC event.
