K9KHJ Operated by: Danny, 7179 from WI

Didn't plan on this sprint but found it and put an hour in with my brand new NOS Navy
Flameproof. First time SKCC on 20m and was delighted, especially since a storm was
moving through and 40m was full of noise.

Personal highlights---working Dennis, N6DIT (love those calls) and Ed, W1EJ.



KQ1P Operated by: John, 5068 from ME

Nice sprint, thanks to all who copied me at QRP. Nice to work some regular SKCC friends
and several newer members. 73



W4CJV Operated by: Wayne, 7043 from GA

Had fun. Looking forward to the next SKCC event.



KA1SAW Operated by: Neal, 2824T from MA

W4CUX Operated by: Bill, 5497T from GA

Lots of fun, as usual. Slow start on 40m. QRN was heavy at times. Good run for a while,
then activity dropped off. Worked lots of old friends and some new ones. Looking forward
to the next event.
73, Bill - W4CUX

great group - you make learning CW fun as I continue look forward to each sprint!

Activity seemed to be light this evening. My 1W signal not being heard by many stations.
But an enjoyable evening non the less.



KJ4LEN Operated by: Ray, 6956T from FL

Great fun. 20M was my bread and butter tonight 40,80 and 160 were almost unusable here

Great SKS in spite of the storm noise. Thanks SKCC leadership for making it possible to
enjoy life like this!



K3MSB Operated by: Mark, 5965T from PA

Ouch... my ears..... nasty QRN this SKS. 20M Played nicely at the start.



NUMP Operated by: Bill, 659T from MO

Had a lot of noise here in western MO from thunderstorms but I did a little work on 15
mtrs and then came down to 40 and found some stronger signals that I could hear over the
QRN and then the band seemed to quiet down some. Sure are a lot of fine ops out there.
Thanks guys for putting this on and thanks to all who participated.

It was good to get back on the air. (I had to take a break after K3Y...) Stayed high
for the whole sprint. 15 was good for the first hour and 20 held up until the last 5
minutes. Thanks for the QSOs. 73, Brian



KD2JC Operated by: Joe, 710T from NJ

Wow, Noisy conditions. S9 noise most of the evening. Most QSOs were on 20 meters. Last
one for me was WL7WH (Bob) thanks Bob, and all that worked me. Used my Ham-Key HK-3M
straight key. 73



WABGV Operated by: Slim, 5465T from MO

Very heavy static at my location. Storm front moving in. QRN louder than most stations.

Greetings from Freeman Amateur Radio Transmission Society



KRWL Operated by: Larry, 7297 from MO

Could not go to 80 with all the storms and QRN. Just another of Slim's Missouri Outlaws

Larry



K9PMV Operated by: Jerry, 1438C from IL

A fun evening as always. Stayed on 7.113 most of the time. Sorry to, I think, some
QRPers. Just couldn't dig out the calls



K8IJ Operated by: Chas, 4781T from KY

Lotta QRN with storms approaching, 40 was my best bet. Many thanks to all - it's always
great fun! Vy 73, Chas




W1EJ Operated by: Ed, 1594T from CA

Started on 20M, tried 40M a couple times but no good, back to 20M for all my contacts.
Over 50sre not a T or C. Only problem with being the bonus station is you can't get
the bonus! Much fun.



W4KRN Operated by: Karen, 4495T from VA

Only worked the last 45 mins. Just had to watch Caps vs. Flyers game. Nice to finally work
Paula NX1P. Had a nice little pipeline to WA and AZ on 20m. Too much noise on 80m tonight.
Used a British MKII straight key mounted on a 350yr old oak board. Thanks for the contacts.



WL7WH Operated by: Bob, 2940T from AK

Was another fun sprint and the bands were good today for me!!! When I get TX 599 you know
something is working great!! Thanks to all that called me!



NV9X Operated by: Jim, 1358T from IL

What a great way to spend a couple of hours on a Tuesday evening. Thanks to my contacts. SRI
to ones I could not hear. Thanks W1EJ for bonus contact. Thanks to all in SKCC that makes
this possible. Looking forward to WES.




WA2JSG Operated by: Curt, 3018T from NJ

Enjoyable sprint, as always. Here 5 watts from an IC-703 to a vertical antenna, 12v
battery, English Kent straight key.



KB4QQJ Operated by: Randy, 3508T from NC

That was a tough sprint from NC. Last two weeks the bands have been great and tonight 80
meters went kaput and 40 was so noisy I had a ruff time with the big signals!! Twenty
meters was a total bust. Best effort goes to John, KQ1P with out a doubt. He stuck with me
and we finally made it. Thanks for sticking it out John. Strongest signal was Jack KK0I
with a 40 over. Tonight I used a rare and original PS213 nan A model key. It's a piece of
history and one of the easiest and most comfortable keys you'll ever find. Best surprise
was Rob, G4LMW on 40 meters!! Thanks Rob, that was a night maker.

73,
Randy



NES Operated by: Mark, 6585T from MO

A pretty good sks tonite-started a little slow as I search and pounced to begin on
20m.Then a little cq`in on 15m and worked Stu- W0DE (Tnx DAd!).Thaks ED W1EJ for the bonus
qso on 20m!!.Moved down to 40m and the QRN was not as bad as I thought it wud be.Finally
got rollin` at the end with 16 Qso`s in the last 30 minutes.Thanks to all stations
worked,just seem to run out of time ,but thats why it`s called a sprint-if it was a long
period it`d be a marathon!! Hope to be on for the next one and work all the great skcc
friends out there....73 Mark NE0S



NTK Operated by: Dan, 7431T from CO

Operated 40m only. QSOs with lots of old friends an a few new ones too.

40 and 80 meters !! Nice signal and fist , buddy !!!! Had fun with the greatest group in

WA2OQJ Operated by: Jim, 5941T from NY

Yaesu FT-817nd Pwr: 500 mw's 80 meter dipole @ 25 feet - I could only jump in and out
tonight but I did want to make a showing as I haven't worked a 2 hour sprint in
awhile...Tried 20 at the beginning of the sprint, heard some strong signals but my 500 mw's
wasn't shaking many trees. Went to 40 and worked Gene K8EE's big signal and then Randy
KB4QQJ. Down to 80 and Mark K3MSB Thankfully pulled me out of the noise! A big thumbs up to
Randy KB4QQJ and K8IJ for their very valiant efforts in trying to dig me out of the 80 meter
noise! Didnt have a lot of time to devote but those times that I could get in was, as usual,
loads of fun!
73/72, Jim WA2OQJ



W5KDM Operated by: Noel, 4812 from MS

I was at #99 SKCC contact last fall when I lost my log to a computer crash. Since then I
have been "pecking away" to get back. My new contacts tonight have allowed me to draw
close for the second time. I am grateful to all who worked me.



K7SDW Operated by: Greg, 6224T from CA

Wow... cant seem to get pass 15 qso.. many s9+ sigs in CA... ruff noise but again was
lots of fun..



K4ORD Operated by: Riley, 7616 from VA

Just able to get in on the last half hour, ran my new K3 at 80 watts, ants 40M dipole @40',
160M dipole @35'. Nice to hear 20M open with strong signals.

73 Riley K4ORD



W7GVE Operated by: Ed, 729T from AZ

This event just keeps getting better and better--- the operators have increased in number
and in quality--- 20 died at 0130z but 40 was great the last 30 mins... ED, W1EJ, sorry
I missed you---- last QSO with W1LVT in VT was a great way to finish--- Great fun as
usual.. 73 to all, ED-W7GVE



KLUW Operated by: Russ, 1702T from NE

I had to go to a class at the local community college and missed the sprint.



K4ZGB Operated by: Tom, 796T from AL

Conditions poor hear on 40 and 80, so missed several that called.



NX1P Operated by: Paula, 7425 from OR

It was great to see other YL's pounding brass in this contest!



N5LUL Operated by: Brad, 3779C from TX

Late evening at work = late start in the sprint. Bounced around from 20/40/back to
20M. Great sigs everywhere! (even from Jim, K5BZH who lives not too far away from me...
hihi) These 2 hour sprints are great! Will be back next month.




WA5BUC Operated by: Fred, 6692 from TX

The bands were wide open tonight. Started on 15. Heard quite a few stations, but could only
work NE7D. Couldn't complete the exchange with a couple of others. Then went down to 20 and
worked KO1U/4 (in SC), W4CJV, KU9RK, AC6FU, KB9LF, W7GVE, KC0RSX, and NX1P. Finished the
night on 40 with N0TK, K4ZGB, and K0RWL. Rig was my usual FT-817ND at 5w to the 100' end-
fed inverted vee. Hope the bands hold up. Thanks everyone from Houston.



NE7D Operated by: Rock, 665T from OR

Parlayed a nice chat with Emil WD4SCV #556T into my first SKS QSO as we crossed the 0000Z
line. Started on 15 and moved to 20, but had to bail out after the first hour. As
always, fun to work new SKCC members and many old friends and those I remember from my
hours as K3Y/7. Will be in SV-land in April so hope to C U all in the May Sprint.
73, Rock Salem, OR



W3NP Operated by: Dave, 3182T from WV

It was not the best evening for QRP ops. The QRN on 40 was horrendous here in WV - the
worst since last summer. I took one listen to 80 and it was really bad, so back to 40. 40
was crowded with stations well below 7050 and up to 7057. I didn't hear too much in the
old novice portion. The conditions seemed good though, with a lot of strong stations on. I
used my Argonaut V at 5 watts to the 130' CF dipole at 45' along with the Vibroplex
Champion. I had a good time as usual, even with the ear punishing din.

Ten Tec Argonaut V @ 5w with 1963 Vibroplex Champion



WC5W Operated by: Dwight, 7543 from IN

Wow, what a mess! 40 meters was full of static tonight. Bagged some new numbers and
getting close to the "C". What a great bunch of operators. I'm glad to be a part of the
SKSCC group.



VE5CUL Operated by: Brian, 1672C from SK

This was a great reason to delay supper for a couple of hours. I started on 20 and every
time I thought of moving someone else heard me through the wind and snow.
Thanks all. Until next time. 73 - Brian



K9ZMD Operated by: Gary, 891T from WA

Very little time to operate tonight, but it was sure fun to hear 20 meters hopping!
Thanks to all those stations I worked from this temporary QTH over the past couple of
months. Next time I sprint, it will be from our new place at Ridgefield, WA. 73

KKI Operated by: Jack, 2370T from WI

Another nice event...bands a bit noisy tonight with freezing rain/sleet/snow and then
thunder towards end...a thunder snowstorm. As always...tnx for all the contacts. Used
the K4VIZ Cootie key. Catch you all again down the log. 73, jack



WA9VEE Operated by: Wayne, 4844C from WI

Spent long time on 20M with west coast, even ND coming through.. that was nice change.



AC4RM Operated by: Robert, 7512C from SC

Very high (S9+) noise level here with lighting crashes on top of that so I'm sure I missed
some callers and more than likely stepped on others, I apologize. Normally when the band
is like that I just turn the rig off. Still enjoyable although a little frustrating.



NW2K Operated by: Dean, 7330T from NY

Homebrew Static-Eliminator Circuit needs more thought....lots of snow, of both kinds,
last night. 20M was fine during most of the sprint and 80M was tough. 5W into an 80M
horizontal loop at 30 feet with tuner.



WB8ENE Operated by: Art, 3773T from OH

I tried 1W this time using my K3 and didn't do too bad (for me) for only spending 90
minutes in the sprint (I usually shut down around 9:30). All of my contacts were made on
40, including a "regular" QSO with K1GDH. Naturally, I picked out the strongest stations
to work, but had to wait a while for some of the pileups to clear before my QRPp signal
was able to get through. I even got one 599 report from Randy KB4QQJ. Thanks to all of
you who make these sprints possible. I really enjoy them. Until next time, 73 (72) to
all.



KA2KGP Operated by: Tom, 1494C from NY

Another good turnout for the SKS, nice conditions on 20 & 40, but noisey on 80m. Rig:
TenTec Argosy at 50w. into MFJ tuner & G5RV up 25', straight key, of course! 73 to all.




WB4MNK Operated by: Arthurpetteway, 2180 from FL

Had fun and enjoyed bring out the Flameproof key.

K2RFP Operated by: Dick, 2099T from NY

I've been so busy writing computer programs I forgot to program
my brain for Daylight Savings Time so I started the sprint an
hour early! I was wondering why the bands seemed empty. Duh!
After Slim set me straight I didn't feel much like playing radio
so I shut the rig down. I came back later to make a token QSO.





W1HFF Operated by: Joe, 6309 from MA

Lots of QRN this time but I had fun anyway. Thanks to all I contacted.



W6GMT Operated by: Brock, 4774C from MN

S9++ noise level all night here in MN.



KKEX Operated by: Rick, 5220T from MO

It had been a long day prior to the Sprint with a trip to Omaha and back by early
afternoon. Yes Russ I called you 0n 146.94 several times. The QRN was heavy but I
heard some good signals and grabbed them. Thank to all for another great sprint.
73 Rick



KK5J Operated by: Bob, 6947 from OK

Missed most of first half due to thunderstorm rolling through. 80 and 40 very noisey.
Enjoyed making contacts with the great SKCC ops out there. 73.



WDE Operated by: Stu, 7400 from MO

It was my pleasure to have to have worked Carlos PY4XX, just wish my signal had been
better. Stu. W0DE



NUYN Operated by: Dennis, 5753T from MO

Forecast storms didn't materialize at my location. The bands continue to improve.
Thanks to Rock NE7D and Paula NX1P for back-to-back contacts in new state OR. 73.



VE5BCS Operated by: Harold, 3946C from SK

I Goofed the day was set up for evening skcc sprint then a meeting same nite oh well I
can still work one hour then a call of a door problem. I grabed a rig run to town solve
problems and work sprint portable and the band was good. All ends well except I gave out
my Naqcc nr. instead of my skcc nr. The c was right. Sorry



WA1AR Operated by: Alan, 4079T from MA

I was too sleepy to make it all the way. After I nodded off a few times I gave up and
went to bed.
