K7ZYV Operated by: Carl, 205 from MS

This is a lot of fun lets do a 2 hour spring more than once a month



VE3AKV Operated by: Bob, 5204T from ON

Hello to all...

Well, there goes another great SKS evening. As per usual, I stayed on 40m for the whole
contest and worked contacts at 300 miles and 1000 miles. Nice signals and great fists out
there in radio land.

It's always a hoot to be able to play SKS with such a great bunch of operators...thank you.

I hope to hear you all again next month.

72/73 from near Ottawa, Ontario, Canada

Missed the first hour then got one phone call after another. I did work some new numbers
in between it all.

KB1OIQ Operated by: Andy, 6265T from MA

I just purchased my very first bug, a Hi-Mound BK-100, at a ham flea market this past
weekend. I spent about an hour adjusting it, and many hours practicing with the computer
listening. If the computer can copy my fist, I figured you could, too! I used the bug
during the sprint and had a great time making my 11 contacts. 73 de Andy

First SKCC Sprint - Just received Centurion today!



PY4XX Operated by: Carlos, 100W from Brazil

I enjoyed working the SKCC, but it is a pity that some amateurs of the U.S., did not turn
the antenna to Brazil ...

Let's see if we can close in more contacts.

Big 73.

KN3A Operated by: Scott, 595T from PA

Stayed mostly on 40 meters to get my T Endorsement - and got it. I went to 80 meters at
the end and had a S-9 noise level. Had a nice time in the Sprint. 73 Scott KN3A



NTA Operated by: John, 2826T from CO

Started on 20m, but quickly ran out of stations. Stayed on 40 the rest of the time, with
1 Q on 80m. K3/100, vertical, K2RFP logger. Personal best for me - thanks for the Q's.



KK5J Operated by: Bob, 6847T from OK

Busy sprint this month. Lots of high SKCC numbers. Good propagation on 40 meters. Thanks
to all I worked. Enjoyed it as always.



NV9X Operated by: Jim, 1358T from IL

Late start. First Q at 0045Z. Still had fun as always. A couple of new ones. Thanks to all
in SKCC that makes this possible. Thanks to my contacts.




WA2JSG Operated by: Curt, 3018T from NJ

Thought I would try QRP on this SKS. 11 contacts, all fun. Thanks for digging out my 'lil
signal.

WA2JSG/QRP



KBKFX Operated by: Scott, 7429 from WI

Great signals tonight. I broke my personal best for a 2 hour sprint in the couple months
since I've started CW sprints. I was sweating bullets to get the last one to make 20. I
finished a new 80M loop in this weekend's snowstorm and think it works fantastic. Rig:
Argonaut V running 5W. Ant: 80M Loop.



W4CJV Operated by: Wayne, 7043 from GA

Another great sprint. CU all during the 3/4 mystery sprint.



K9KHJ Operated by: Danny, 7179 from WI

Best conditions I've encountered. Plus, DOUBLE THANK YOU to ALL who dug out the QRP
stations. It means a lot. I heard some LOUD stations, K4ZGB sounded like he was in my
driveway--and K1NV was blasting in from NV. Some fine, fine ops tonight---total pros.
Had a rough day at work---this was better than a couple of beers.



KCRSX Operated by: Len, 14 from MN

Where are the Cs and newcomers?



KD2JC Operated by: Joe, 710T from NJ

Good turnout. Used the J-38. 20 40 and 80 had ample stations. Should have done better but
too many distractions. 73 to all.



K3MSB Operated by: Mark, 5965T from PA

Great sprint! Nice to see some action on 20M at the start of the event. Highlights were
being called by Rob G4LMW on 40M and John GM4SLY on 80M. Started off on 20M with my Blue
Racer Bug and switched over to the J-38 as needed when I had to QRS. When I went to 40M,
and then to 80M, I put my HB Bug Tamer on the bug and used it for all QSOs.



W3NP Operated by: Dave, 3182T from WV

Started out on 40 but my 5 watts wasn't doing too well there. When Russ - K0LUW can't hear
me with his big signal I figure it's time to change bands. Went to 80 and did a bit
better. Seemed to be a lot of activity on both bands. Worked some high number members as
has been the case lately. It's good to see the newer members jumping right in for the
regular events. Had fun as always. TT Omni 7 at 5 watts, CF Zepp with Viking KW Matchbox
(to handle the high power), 1963 Vibroplex Champion and Junker straight key. 73 till next
time.



W4CUX Operated by: Bill, 5497T from GA

Great Sprint. Loads of fun. Looking forward to the Mystery Sprint !!

73
Bill - W4CUX



KLUW Operated by: Russ, 1702T from NE

Got a late start but still a lot of fun. Worked 11 new SKCC numbers, very unusual.



W7GVE Operated by: Ed, 729T from AZ

20 WAS OPEN FOR THE 1ST HOUR--- 40 ALSO GOOD--- ITS SURE FUN TO WORK ALL OF THOSE OLD
FRIENDS --- CU ON 15 AND 10 FOR THE WES---- I DISCOVERED I WAS RUNNING ONLY 40 WATTS
ON 20 BUT IT DID NOT SEEM TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE.. 73 ED



K4PP Operated by: Paul, 7003 from AL

I had set my calendar for this event thanks to the reminders from Tom Hardison K4ZGB .
Glad I did. Great fun for new CW op to get some operating time. K4PP



WDECO Operated by: Mitch, 6893T from MO

Another nice Sprint and thanks to all SKCC.

I used the NT9K SKCC Club Key. A really smooth key and fun to use.

It wouldn't be a SKCC event without working ED, W7GVE, and got him right off on 20M.

Also nice to work a newer member: SKCC #7702 - KA2E, Mike from NY.

And it was nice to work so many fellow MO Outlaws: W0DE, N0UMP, K2HT, N0UYN, and Slim
WA0BGV snuck in at the end.

Also glad to work Bill, KB2RAW, who introduced me to SKCC. TU Bill!!!

73, Mitch




N8BB Operated by: Werner, 5433T from MI

Just had 20 minutes to play but had fun with 900mw. Very happy to find KK7S Chad on 40
meters. Found Ed W7GVE and usually work him but Ed did not hear me this time, always work
Ed qrpp. NW2K Dean was also an easy contact. Tnx again to all that worked my QRPp.



KJ4LEN Operated by: Ray, 6956T from FL

Made all contacts on 40M.QRM and QRN were rough.I tried 80M but too much QRN there. All in
all I think I did pretty well. Picked up some new numbers. Thanks to everyone that worked
me and sorry to those that I couldn't pull out. I had a lot of fun. 73 Ray



WABGV Operated by: Slim, 5465T from MO

Shortest two hours on radio!

W4KRN Operated by: Karen, 4495T from VA

First time operating QRP 5 watts for SKCC sprint. Was able to work KK7S Chad in WA...good
ears! Got stepped on a lot, but just kept trying or waiting for the right moment to jump in.
No luck with running a frequency. Used my Begali Spark key and played fetch with my big
orange cat 'Gretzky' in between contacts! Worked the SKS for 1 hour.



N2JNZ Operated by: George, 2836T from NY

Only worked for a hour but had fun !! The new Flex software has really improved the
performance of the 1500. Started out with the 1964 Blue Racer then went to the Vizkey
Vertical. Thanks all !!! Rig a Flex 1500 , 5 watts , antenna a ZeroFive 40 meter vertical




KRWL Operated by: Larry, 7297 from MO

Speed X kept wanting to come apart....had problems with clock the first hour but finally
got is right for the last hour.....40 sounded good and 80 stunk....had two 5 minute
periods where I couldn't get anyone....but...had fun and that is what counts....Larry
K0RWL



NUMP Operated by: Bill, 659T from MO

I worked 40 for a little while and then went to 160 and didn't have any luck so I moved
to 80 and WOW! I had a wonderful time. Worked several MO stations including NE0S, WA0BGV,
W0DE, K0RWL, N0UYN and WD0ECO. All ops were great. Tnx to all and see you on the next
sprint if not sooner....Bill 73


FD from yesteryears. N0UMP at the helm.



N5LUL Operated by: Brad, 3779C from TX

20, 40, and 80M were playing well this evening. Made a few contacts on each of those
bands. Hope to hear everyone again next month!




N4SAM Operated by: Sam, 96 from AL

Worked 20, 40 and 80. Good conditions. Thanks for the QSOs



W2HWW Operated by: Tony, 4488T from NJ

Nice amount of activity on 40M and 80M this evening. Went back to using my Softrock RXTX
v6.3 at 1W output and was surprised at the reports. Lots of fun.



K9ZMD Operated by: Gary, 891T from WA

Signals were stronger tonight compared to the January SKS, so the local noise wasn't as
troublesome. I stuck it out for the full 2 hours & had lots of fun. It was good to work
some old friends, some of whom might have noticed I was sloowwing down & sending "WA"
twice (those magic logs still think I'm in Palmdale, CA).
Heard the bugmeister, Bill W6DDB #7601, actually using a straight key on 20 meters
tonight. It must have stressed him because he was back on the bug by the time I worked
him on 40 meters. :) BTW, Bill was the only one in the 7K series that I logged tonight;
were the newer members all watching a basketball game or something? 73

NES Operated by: Mark, 6585T from MO

Great sprint here in the midwest,good bands and signals too! I honestly think I replied
to all calls this time.A first hihi!Nice to hear a lot of activity and so many new nr`s

everyone who answered my calls.Only worked one MO station this time(N0UMP-TNX Bill),that
might be a first also! Hope to see u all next sprint 73 Mark NE0S
(Oh yea,thanks for making the cat and bird dance, Dick!!)

M6TTH Operated by: Thomas, 7344 from England

First time I took part in a sprint, or any contest for that matter. It was a bit
hard to get any QSOs as my antenna has a problem with USA (I get Mexico, Venezuela and
Brazil much better, so I guess most of the US is in a null). But at least I got a couple
near the end and they were both tribunes!

Even though I didn't get a very high score, it was an exciting experience and I'll be back
for more - I'll be improving my antenna in time for the next SKCC event!

Thanks to the 2xTom who worked me, K4ZGB 796T and W4TMW 6184T. 73!

My station set up for SKS - Kenwood TS-130S (open), MFJ 949E tuner, Czech army key



KK7S Operated by: Chad, 6730C from WA

Wow! My hand got REALLY tired by the end of this one. I started to QLF pretty bad.
Apologies for those who were trying to copy me. This sprint is a ton of fun. Glad I
could make it to this one.

*Oops* Resubmitting because I forgot to count Carlos (PY4XX) as a mult. Great to hear
you in the SKS, Carlos!

73, -Chad(d) KK7S




K1NV Operated by: Jon, 2609T from NV

It was a pretty good sprint this month. 20M was in good shape as late as an hour into the
sprint period. I went to 40M and found conditions lively as well, so never made it to 80M.
It was good to work VE4DET (7581) in MB on 40M...Tnx, Rich! VE5BCS and VE7KBN were strong
on 20M. No other DX was heard from Nevada.





N5RDN Operated by: Rob, 406 from TX

Tks to all that worked me, had fun. 73, Rob



NDCW Operated by: Dave, 2882T from ND

lots of fun, but wife's birthday, so one band, one hour. thanks guys for the fun!



VE3FUJ Operated by: Brion, 4936T from ON

I started on 80 not much heard there from here. Changed to 40 made 5 contacts had to quit
after 1 1/2hr, pickings were rather poor for me but I still enjoyed it. See you all next
time. Brion



WA5BUC Operated by: Fred, 6692 from TX

Bands seemed reasonable tonight. 20 stayed open longer than I expected. 40 picked up the
slack. Finished on 80. Heard nothing on 160. 72's from Houston.



NUYN Operated by: Dennis, 5753T from MO

Good turnout this time. Started out working a couple of signals from the west on 20:
K1NV and W7GVE. 40 was a no go for me. MO was coming in good on 80. Worked K0RWL,
N0UMP, and WD0ECO and heard a half dozen other Missourians. KA0CSW and K8EE rounded out
my total. 73.



KKI Operated by: Jack, 2370T from WI

Nice evening for SKS. Worked 40 mtrs (old novice portion...my favorite place)most of the
evening with a few on 80 mtrs at the end. Many thanks for all the contacts...the fists of
some of the new members are sounding fantastic. Keep up the great work! See you at the
next one. 73, jack



KKEX Operated by: Rick, 5220T from MO

The conditions were good here, worked 20 - 40 - & 80 meters for the first hour. Sharing
the duty for dinner took me away for awhile and returned in time to catch Slim WA0BGV.
Many nice qso's with members where we spent a little time chatting, that was nice.
Thanks to everyone for another fun sprint....73 Rick



KA2KGP Operated by: Tom, 1494C from NY

Conditions pretty good here in WNY this sprint, even 20 was open for a while. Rig:
TenTec Argosy II at 50w. into an MFJ tuner & G5rv up 25 ft., straight key, of course! 73



WA9VEE Operated by: Wayne, 4844C from WI

Plasma QRM! Ugh.

At least it kindly left me some holes to listen in.



WS9E Operated by: Joe, 3859 from WI

I got on for the last hour using the Omni 6+ and the old Speed-X key. I heard quite a
few stations active on 80 and 40. Conditions seemed pretty good on both bands. I think I
may have worked the two new stations I need to applly for the Centurian award. I will
check the spreadsheet tonight. I think it's great that these two hour sprints get so
many people on the air. Thanks to all who participated. This continues to be a fun event.



N4QLB Operated by: Michael, 6650T from AL

Only worked 45 mins. Good to see so many new members.



KE4YH Operated by: Stewart, 1893 from FL

Great fun. 40 meters was the best band for me and I really enjoyed using my Junker key.

K9PMV Operated by: Jerry, 1438C from IL

This one was a hard pull at this QTH. Had a 20db over S9 noise level to deal with. Had to
use all the filtering and noise blanking I could get out of my rig. 20 meters was dead so
40 M seemed to carry the most activity here.One notable QSO was with Bob,VE3AKV. He had
one of the few signals to top my noise level and he was running 5 watts QRP! But, anyway,
it was a great chance to use my new Centurion status and start to work toward my Tribune.
73 to all and see you on the next event.



K1NAJ Operated by: Norman, 2155C from ME

I had a great time for my 1st complete SKS.
Thanks all es 73,
Norm/K1NAJ



W4TMW Operated by: Tom, 6184T from GA

Each sprint is a new adventure for me and this one held true to form.
I didn't move from 40M only because there seemed to be no lack of stations, especially
to the northeast. Suprise for me was a call from M6TTH, Thomas, who I originally
thought was W6TTH. Thomas, tnx for the contact.

Thanks t oall for the great turnout.

73

W1HFF Operated by: Joe, 6309 from MA

VE5BCS Operated by: Harold, 3946C from SK

Tnx to my few contacts. Band was good. I have trouble with 40m antenna cu for the wes.



KE5SBZ Operated by: Ed, 6131 from TX

I would like to thank all my contacts. QRM on 40 in TX S9. I received my first straight
key 2 1/2 hours before the start of the sprint. Tried to get it mounted and some type of
adj. to make at least one contact. Had never been in any contest. Got 3 including a T and
a C. I am thrilled considering my abilities. I had been using a CW touch Keyer. A fine
product.
TNX to all 73 KE5SBZ Ed



WB8ENE Operated by: Art, 3773T from OH

I believe this is the highest number of contacts I've ever made in a weekday sprint.
Worked N0TA, WP3C, and K4ZGB on two different bands too. Thanks for another enjoyable
sprint. I guess we're back to the later start time next month. Oh well, it was nice
while it lasted. See you in the WES. 73, Art



AF2Z Operated by: Drew, 2082T from NJ

WB5JWI Operated by: Les, 5013T from TX

room. I hope everyone enjoyed.
