KE4KY Operated by: Glenn, 2622T from KY

Been a while since I have submitted a score...glad I could do an hour tonite. 73...see
you February!!



K9ZMD Operated by: Gary, 891T from WA

Feels good to be back on the air & in the sprints again. My under the-eaves-antenna and a
high noise level make me an alligator, so I only played S & P. After an hour or so, I'd
worked all I could hear on 20 and 40, so I shut down the station to get away from the
punishing noise. Anyway, those few stations that I worked, rest assured that you had to
be the very strongest signals reaching my little bit of wire during this sprint. 73

Well here I sit in the VA hospital in Salisbury with my brother, knowing for the first
time I'll have my log in before anybody else!! LOL I was on the road mobile for the first
45 minutes of the sprint. Sort of hard to drive and log a sprint. I worked several and
heard a lot more. Tried real heard for K3Y/7 but never made it. Strongest signal worked
was Russ, K0LUW (also first signal worked) AD8B was strong but never replied so didn't log
it. Heard Dick, K2RFP on 7.113 but couldn't get the truck pointed North to work him. I was
heading South :-( Sounded like band was in great shape. I had a homebrew hustler type 40m
antenna with my 817 and Russian key on a leg strap. Got one Got one K3Y (thank Chas) and
got to work Ed,W7GVE (new A-1 Op) Always fun!! 73 and I'll see you in K3Y. Randy_KB4QQJ/M



K2VT Operated by: Randy, 1050T from NJ

Only had about 30 minutes to play, but still had fun. See you next month.



WA1AR Operated by: Alan, 4079T from MA

Not much on 20 M tonight. 40M and 80M noisy but OK. Fun as always



K2NPN Operated by: Phil, 1687T from NY

This evenings SKS was fun! I had some local QRN on my end, but we got through it FB...73

NTA Operated by: John, 2826T from CO

Pretty slow in Colorado - probably because I was QRP! 1Q on 20m and 80m, the rest on
40.Thought the propagation was pretty good and the bands fairly quiet. K2/4.9w, vertical,
K2RFP logger.



W9LW Operated by: Jay, 6222T from IN

Got a late start again this month! Maybe I'll be on time next month.



WA2JSG Operated by: Curt, 3018T from NJ

Fun sprint, as always. Rig Icom IC-7000, 75w to an elevated vertical.



WP3C Operated by: Alfredo, 7437 from Puerto Rico

HI

enjoy it a lot. Thanks everyone for the qso. 73'

KB1NHV Operated by: Art, 2775 from VT

QRM/QRN was terrible on 40&80. Only worked 4 stations but it was fun anyway. Tried to
work a few K3Y stations also but too many others got there first! Look forward to the
next one.



W3NP Operated by: Dave, 3182T from WV

Only worked 80 meters and there was wall to wall activity. Took me halfway through the
sprint to stop trying to send K3Y as my call. Ran my Ten Tec Omni 7 at 4.7 watts and used
my Vibroplex Champion most of the sprint but used the WW2 German Telefunken straight key
for the slower guys. The noise level was up due to the storm heading up the east coast
from the south. As always, had a great time - even after all the K3Y activity so far this
month. 73 to all.



KK7YJ Operated by: Jim, 2728T from MT

Tnx to KF7KPL, K0LUW, KK5J and AA9L for the Q's. We had a new Grandbaby born a few hours
before start of the Sprint.His name is Liam and one of three boy grandkids now. My wife
was hoping for a girl this time hi. When we go to visit the new one in CA I'll bring a SK
and put it in his tiny hand to see what happens - May be a few yrs tho - Stay tuned for
Liam (SKCC #9900).
73 all, Jim

Another fun Sprint. This one was interesting for me... I Worked the first half as k3y/4

NES Operated by: Mark, 6585T from MO

The bands were sure noisy here tonite but had a good time anyway=missed a few calls cause
of the QRN,sorry about that.I worked as K3Y/0 for the first hour of the sprint and gave
out 16 reports-then as NE0S for the last hour with 9 more Q`s=I didn`t count the K3Y Q`s
in my sprint score (didn`t seem right).It`s all about the fun anyway!!I hope everyone has
enjoyed the K3Y Anniv. activity as much as me.Nice to hear so many stations working on all
the bands having so many QSO`s.If it went on all year I wud probably be single again!!HIHI

WA5VQM Operated by: Mark, 58T from TX

Half-hour late start and then a 45-minute interruption didn't enhance my score any. Used a
key I bought at a local hamfest a couple of weeks ago, a Czech "Coffin" key. 73.

WB5UAA Operated by: Guy, 6711 from TX

Great sprint. Al (WP3C), you were the only signal I heard on 20M, thanks for the QSO.
40 was rough, but fun. Sorry Bill (NZ1D), I just couldn't pull you out of the noise.
Sorry Art (WB8ENE), I get on a roll and forget to check for dupes. Wish I'd moved over
to 80 sooner. Look forward to the next sprint.



K4ORD Operated by: Riley, 7616 from VA

Just joined SKCC a few days ago, so this is my first sprint, thanks for all the welcomes
to SKCC during the spring. Ran my K2@5W QRP,key was J-38, ant's are 40M and 160M dipoles.
Seems there was lots of activity during the sprint had lots of qrn on 80M and some on 40M.
Was lots of fun, plan on being back next month. 73 Riley



VE3WMB Operated by: Michael, 120 from ON

Slow start! W3NP woke me up but it took me a few minutes for it to soak in. Forgot about
contest. T'was fun again.

W7GVE Operated by: Ed, 729T from AZ

Another great SKS-- I stayed on 40 for the duration. These sprints keep getting bigger
and better.. CU next month ED



KBKFX Operated by: Scott, 7429 from WI

I didn't get to participate the entire duration, but had fun for my first SKCC sprint. I
have a lot more to learn in contesting....call CQ or S&P? At my location it seemed somewhat
quiet early on and the last 10 minutes I come back and 80M was hoping.



K7TKT Operated by: Brian, 6695 from ID

I worked the two hours as K3Y/7. Worked both 20m and 40m with inverted V's in the back
yard. Had a good time and was pretty popular. I had a very hard time pulling some folks
out because of QRN. Sorry to those I missed---I know there were several that I just
couldn't get. All in all, a fun evening. 73, Brian



KD2JC Operated by: Joe, 710T from NJ

Another nice Sprint. Both 40 and 80 meters very noisy here and local man-made noise made
things worse. Thanks to all that worked me. 73: Joe




KKI Operated by: Jack, 2370T from WI

Worked as K3Y/9 last evening. Worked both 80 and 40 meters. Thanks for all the contacts
folks...and as always...a fun event. 73, jack



KE5YUM Operated by: Terry, 5173T from OK

I stayed on 80 to try out my 80 meter dipole. Lots of QRM, but I'm thankful for the
contacts that I made. Thanks to all who worked me and those who tried but could not.



KQ1P Operated by: John, 5068 from ME

Deep QSB on 40 m made QRP contacts even more difficult than usual. Winds made plenty of QRN on 80 m. Still fun. 73.



W5EHM Operated by: Mike, 6304C from AR

20 mtrs pretty much dead here after 0000z. Worked only 40 and had a great deal of fun.
Thanks to all,

73,

Mike



KA2KGP Operated by: Tom, 1494C from NY

80m. was the best band for this sprint here in WNY. 20m. was completely dead & 40m. was
long & weak. There were some nice strong sigs on 80m. Rig: TenTec Argosy at 50w. into MFJ
tuner & G5RV up 25 ft. with a straight key, of course! 73 to all.




WS9E Operated by: Joe, 3859 from WI

I got on during the second hour. 80 meters seemed good. Low noise and good signals. I
only made a couple of contacts on 40. 20 and 15 sounded dead, no signals at all. I
worked two new (to me) club members pushing me closer to Centurian.



VE3FUJ Operated by: Brion, 4936T from ON

40 and seemed dead at this Qth. It took me 50 min of no contacts, before I could tear
myself away from my favorite band, so much for being "persistent", Check 20 then go to 80
where I finally made some headway. Enjoyed it though, one contact was tough going, rest
was armchair. Brion



KKEX Operated by: Rick, 5220T from MO

First contact on 20M, K9ZMD/7, good to hear you Gary, checked 40M and moved to 80M where
the action was here in Mo. Took a break for dinner, a local net, and made my last contact
with K0RWL...welcome to the SKCC bunch Larry....

The Vibroplex Original belongs to Everett AA0DV, I put to work for this event after cleaning
and adjusting...seemed to work great....73 to all..!!

KB3LNP Operated by: Roy, 1676 from PA

FIRST SPRINT FOR ME LOTS OF NOISE ON THE BAND BUT WAS FUN



K1PUB Operated by: Chas, 4101T from MA

Just as the sprint began I checked to see who was working k3Y/1. Answer: no one! So a
quick call to the area one coordinator got me booked to operate as K3Y/1. Thanks Pete for
the quick response.

Started on 40 M, lousy propagation, even Russ (K0LUW) was only S7 compared to his usual
10 over 9. Lots of QRN too. Moved to 80 M and things picked up a bit, but QRN still a
problem. Worked a lot of numbers in the 7000s, including K4ORD, number 7616. Good to see
the new members participating in the sprint.



K4JPN Operated by: Steve, 2402T from GA

Got a late start, heavy QRN here made QSO's difficult, I heard several stations call me,
but just could not copy the call. 73, Steve K4JPN



AB1BW Operated by: George, 2468T from CT

Good sprint with lots of activity. It was nice to be back on the air after being qrt for
two months after hip surgery. I only made seven contacts because I can't sit for
extended periods but it was fun never the less. See you for the next one. 73, George



WB8ENE Operated by: Art, 3773T from OH

80 meters was the place to be this time. Nice strong signals heard. Really enjoyed the
sprint. Rig is Elecraft K3 at 100 Watts into 135' doublet @ 15', and 4-BTV vertical @
25'. 73, and see you on the air.



N8BB Operated by: Werner, 5433T from MI

It was fun as always. Had fun with my 1 watt and some stations were very easy to work and
some were not but that is what the fun is all about. I missed Randy and George but will be
back next time for sure. Have fun and catch you later.



WA1VIL Operated by: Greg, 443T from MA

Always fun-most of my contacts were on the upper end of 40 meters during the second hour
of the sprint-unusual for me compared to most of the other sprints that I have been
in-made a number of contacts with stations that I hadn't worked before-great to see how
the group keeps growing and growing! 73 es C U next time!



KK5J Operated by: Bob, 6947 from OK

Bands were noisey and propagation was marginal. Congrats Jim KK7YJ. Enjoyed the sprint as
always.



W9SAY Operated by: Chas, 1158T from IL

Finally got to the radio with one minute to go made one QSO at that was it. Well someone
has to bring up the rear.
Chas



NLT Operated by: John, 2964 from IA

Well, spent almost the full two hours calling stations but only one contact.
Thanks Scott, K1OA.
Think I doulbed with someone calling the WP3C, sorry about that.
Was hard to always hears the calling station.

Was still much fun and the louder stations, such as KY3/3 seemed to be working pileups.

Was calling with the VIZKEY for the first time on the air so got some valuable practice in.

Only needed 8 to close in on the Centurion but sometimes you're the kicker sometimes the kickee.

CU next time, maybe as a "C" :-D

John N0LT



N5JKY Operated by: Mike, 85 from OK

Only had a few minutes to operate but it was still fun.



K9FO Operated by: Will, 5811 from IL

Hello All: Nice to work the SKCCers. Not a big score but it was fun. RIG: TenTec Orion @
5 watts, 40 dipole, 80 longwire, KEY: My original Lionel J-38 purchased new in the box in
1953 for one dollar. It still feels great! 73/72, Will, K9FO
