KI6BHB Operated by: Dave, 4186C from CA

Worked 20m. Band picked up in the second hour, but only 10-20 watts out here.

73, Dave




W4CUX Operated by: Bill, 5497T from GA

Good Sprint. 20m was the sweet spot tonight. Other bands were noisy or empty. Looking
forward to next event.
73, Bill - W4CUX



NTA Operated by: John, 2826T from CO

Tough night in Colorado. Kept flipping between 20 and 40m, but made most Q's on 20. Seemed
like the bands were noisy and everybody was weak. K3, vertical, K2RFP Sprint Logger.



KF7KPL Operated by: Gil, 7226T from UT

Thanks for another fun FB sprint. Bands could have been better but all in all not too
bad. Thanks to all who were able to copy my signal. 73 till next time de Gil KF7KPL

73 de Jerry/VE5DC



W9CC Operated by: Larry, 469T from IN

20 meters was quiet but 40 had qrn. Lots of fun again. Thanks for the QSO's guys.



W6SQQ Operated by: Al, 1283C from CA

Shucks.....I just GOTTA do some antenna work. Half the guys I called didn't hear me (at
100W). 20 meters was the workhorse, tried 40 and 80 to no avail. Called N0TA (599 sigs)
on both 20 and 40, but no joy. Enjoyed the Sprint and hope to do lots better next time
with an improved antenna system. Thanks to all who participated.

KE4KY Operated by: Glenn, 2622T from KY

Really had a great time tonite. There was a lot of QRN on 40m around me tonite....I was
able to park myself on one frequency for appx an hour and a half. There were several QRP
stations that came over the noise...there were some I just could not dig out - sorry!

73

See you next month!

K2ZC Operated by: Dave, 1945T from NJ

First sprint in a while. I used my new Flex 1500 @ 5 watts into a dipole. Had some problems
with the radio because I'm still not sure about the configuration. My transmit sidetone was
blowing out my eardrums,so I turned the sidetone off. I finally figured out how to adjust
the volume on transmit. Didn't make a lot of qso's but learned a lot about my new rig. It
was a lot of fun. Tnx guys fer the contacts. 73 Dave k2zc



N3PDT Operated by: Doug, 6861T from MO

Only got to work about 40 minutes on and off, but still was great fun as always. A lot of
strong signals on 20m all the way through. To top it off for me, I finally worked VT,
completing basic WAS. Thank you Lenny, W1LVT, and thanks to all!



KC2EGL Operated by: Michael, 553T from PA

As usual I had a blast with our SKS. I was able to keep busy on 40M all night. I had to
QSY a few times because some other operators jumped on the frequency I was operating on.
I guess they did not hear my QRP signal Hi-Hi! Thanks to all who worked me. CU next
time on the radio.

Rough night for QRP-kept getting stomped on...but if you can't hear me, then no harm-no
foul....fun anyway. Thanks to all who make it happen!



NUMP Operated by: Bill, 659T from MO

Hi from western Missouri. We had some storms moving in making lots of QRN. I could be
heard but couldn't hear for the QRN so I went to search and pounce. Still had some fun.
See you all later..Bill N0UMP.




K8TJ Operated by: Timenglish, 3667 from MI

My first SKCC sprint and I had a ball! Ran QRP with my HB-1A tri-band QRP rig and an old
Speed-X straight key. Hope to operate in many more upcoming sprints.



NW2K Operated by: Dean, 7330T from NY

Tough time on 20M and 80M and nothing heard on 15M. Lots of strong signals here but
could not work many of them on 20M. Unfortunately, I never heard KI6BHB. 5W, with
tuner, into an 80M loop at 30 feet.



W3NP Operated by: Dave, 3182T from WV

This was my first time at trying QRPp operation on a sprint. I knew the bands were noisy,
but was pleasantly surprised at how good condx were on both 20 and 40 meters. I ran
between 820 and 870 MW for the entire event. I used a Bird 6 db attenuator since my Argo V
won't go below about 2 watts and the Omni 6 Plus was in the basement. Thanks to all who
heard me. I really enjoyed the challenge and appreciate all the good operators in our
group. Antennas were the KLM KT-34A @ 50' and my 130 CF zepp on 40. Most of my activity
was on 20 but ended up on 40 and was surprised at how strong the signals were in relation
to the QRN. Lots of storms all around. My key for the evening was the Vibroplex Blue Racer
Deluxe from 1963.
I worked Bill K5LN before the event started and he was not aware of the SKCC sprint so I
told him to check it out on the web and I was real surprised to work him during the
sprint. He was working the SKS just like he had always been here. Way to go Bill and hope
to see you back with a SKCC number!! 73, Dave - W3NP

Nice sprint. Nice to meet SKCCers in Dayton. Looking forward to WES.




K5UI Operated by: Jim, 2980 from TX

Great event as usual, though first time I have been able to work it in many months.

K4ZGB Operated by: Tom, 796T from AL

Conditions not so good. Only 20 meters was workable for me.
The Alabama QSO Party is June 4, and I'll be mobile in several counties. Hope to see some
of our SKers participating. Info at alabamaqsoparty.org



NG7Z Operated by: Paul, 802T from WA

Great to do a sprint again. It's been a couple of months since I've had a free Tuesday
evening. Spent the entire time on 20M but got a late start due to phone calls. Worked
several unfamiliar callsigns which told me I've been away too long! Congrats to Dave W3NP
on a fine signal qrpp. That had to be very satisfying to him to get all the way across
the country on such little power. Great to work John KA9DVX 7439 and Rick NS7B 7594. I
see that the club is approaching 8000 members now. Just amazing how many hams are joining
this great group of CW afficianados. Thanks for the Q's and see you in WPX this weekend.

K9PMV Operated by: Jerry, 1438C from IL

Wow! My best SKS ever! Called CQ SKS just as the clock rolled over to 00:00Z on 14.055
mhz. Stayed there till 02:00Z working em' as fast as I could. Never took the 2 Element
Quad of off a southwest heading. 20 meters was open the whole time and never even went to
40 or 80 meters. A wonderful evening of fun. Glad to have worked everyone. 73 to all and
CU next time.

VE7LAJ Operated by: Andy, 6611T from BC

I had fun, as usual. Tnx to all those who contacted me.



WABGV Operated by: Slim, 5465T from MO

Very high static level at my QTH. Heard lots of station calling me but couldn't pick
them out of the static.



NES Operated by: Mark, 6585T from MO

I worked the sprint from my country place with no power lines around but the wx provided
plenty of qrn here.Had fun checking out some FD gear and found my laptop supply was
subpar..good to find out now..Worked mostly 20m with a half square ant that I just pulled
into the trees.A little trouble with my casting aim and didn`t get started til abt
0030z.Man was 40m noisy only a few Q`s there..Thanks all for hearing my Battery operated

This was my first sprint and I did it without my number. I received my number after the
sprint was over. I look forward to doing it again many time in the future. Great fun
and I enjoyed usint the straight key again.

Tnx,
Bill Sepulveda, K5LN



K9ZMD Operated by: Gary, 891T from WA

Just two contacts to "show the flag". This was the only day this week with a little
sunshine in the forecast, and that opportunity for a family outing took priority over the
sprint. 73

KE7YTE Operated by: Tom, 6447C from AZ

I stayed on 20m this evening. My kx1 & Buddipole vertical reached out again with only 3w.
Thanks for another good time with CW, Straight Key, QRP. C U AGN



NS7B Operated by: Rick, 7594 from UT

Lots of QSB and QRN here in Utah.But did ok with all the good operators on SKS.I used my old
novice J37 key from 1968.Hope to work June SKS camping up high in the mountain next mouth.
73 Rick.



KJ4LEN Operated by: Ray, 6956T from FL

New work schedule cut into my SKS time. I still had about 30 min. of fun on 20M. Much QRN on
40 and 80. See everyone in WES. 73, Ray




KKI Operated by: Jack, 2370T from WI

Started out on 20 meters and ended on 40 meters. As always a nice sprint. Got a couple of
ragchews in. It was certainly nice to put faces with the "dits and dahs" heard by those I
had met at Dayton. It was certainly a fun time. See you all down the log again. 73, jack



WB5UAA Operated by: Guy, 6711T from TX

N6WK and N0TA, I couldn't break through the pile ups to get you guys! 20M was ok for a
while, 40M was very noisy due to lightning in Dallas. Didn't even try 80M. Had fun.
Simulated emergency communications exercise for me, used my IC-706 on battery. Looking
forward to the next sprint.



WB8ENE Operated by: Art, 3773T from OH

Tried out my new 20 meter dipole, so I didn't make a lot of contacts on 40 and 80 like I
normally do. Some QRN here due to all of the storms we've been getting for the past
several weeks. I hope June brings more sunshine. Enjoyed the sprint as usual. 73, Art



KE5YUM Operated by: Terry, 5173T from OK

I spent most of the evening watching for severe storms and participating in the local
Skywarn net, so I was only able to make one QSO before I had to unplug the equipment. 20
sounded real good, though. I look forward to the June sprint.



VE5BCS Operated by: Harold, 3946C from SK

I tryed qrp but couldn't raise a contact so back to big 100 watts then had to leave
early c u n test..Harold



KD5JHE Operated by: Jerry, 1976T from MS

Only got to operate for 1 hour for this sprint. Made 8 Q's and several of them were new
contacts I had never worked before. It brought my total to just over 300 SKCC members I
have worked. Had fun as always and can't wait for the next one. Thanks all.



WS9E Operated by: Joe, 3859C from WI

Lawn chores ate up most of my operating time. I finished in time to make three QSOs on 20
and three more on 40. Signal levels seemed to be down on both bands, but there was no QRN
on 20. On 40 the noise level was higher. I made two QSOs with new, to me, Tribunes to
push me closer to the coveted Tribune award.
Thanks, everyone, for coming out. See you next time.



KE5SBZ Operated by: Ed, 6131 from TX

Another great sprint. T-storms in the Dallas area limited time on the air. Not that I had
a run for the top spot hi hi.



K1PUB Operated by: Chas, 4101T from MA

Been a while since I have worked an SKS. Nice to be back. Started on 20M, lost time
troubleshooting an antenna problem, and not a lot of activity once I got on the air.
Switched to 40 M, much better, then finished up with a couple of QSOs on 80M. All in all
a fun sprint. 73 all.



KA2KGP Operated by: Tom, 1494C from NY

40 M. was the band for this SKS, on 20 & 80 I only had 1 QSO each band from here in WNY.
Rig: TenTec Argosy at 50w. into either all band dipole up 25' or all band gnd. mtd.
vertical, straight key, of course! 73 to all.

NL7P Operated by: Bill, 7026 from VA

This is my first try at this sort of thing. I may not have gotten everything right but
the spirit of the event was right.



K9FO Operated by: Will, 5811 from IL

Conditions good but lots of storm noise. Glad 20 meters is open now and did try 40 for a
few QSOs. Thanks for the contacts guys. 73, Will K9FO



KQ1P Operated by: John, 5068 from ME

Nice sprint, nice to work some new members and others who haven't been in my log for a
long time. 73.



WB2VEN Operated by: Chris, 7777 from NJ

Was busy and could only listen sporadically over the 2 hrs. Heard many SKS'ers, but
seemed to have trouble getting through to several with my 750mW. Fun trying nonetheless! 72!



K2PAY Operated by: Jerry, 4304T from NY

Something was missing this Sprint.



AF2Z Operated by: Drew, 2082T from NJ

I never seem to make the start of the SKS but always there for the finish... Most QSOs
were on 20m, a few on 40; even caught a couple of guys hiding out on 80m: Jim W8WTS and
George K4GM... Worked SKCC "old hand" Fred KA4RUR #212... Was taking turns on 40m with
"JB" WA2WMJ calling SM6CLU but he could hear neither of us, so we worked each other...
Frank KB4T, long time no hear, was my final QSO this sprint, my first QSO in my first SKCC
sprint way back when... My rig: Elecraft K3 running 10 watts to random wire; Junker
straight key.



NUYN Operated by: Dennis, 5753T from MO

I finished the sprint ahead of storms which knocked out power locally. Best wishes to our
neighbors in Joplin. 73.



W9HLY Operated by: Vern, 6672T from IN

Late start. Forgot! Lots of static because of local storms. Lots of non responding calls.
No response to a CQ or two. Chalk it up to summer times conditions. Bet it will be better
next time.

Vern



W1EJ Operated by: Ed, 1594T from CA

Well it was my son's birthday (43), the family was gathered ready for dinner; but, I
snuck in to the garage and made just one contact before I was caught!



AC4RM Operated by: Robert, 7512T from SC

Best I could figure was 762mw output. Bands seemed very noisy this end and lots of weak
signals. Made other calls but propagation just wasn't on my side. See y'all next time.



N6WK Operated by: Gordon, 3T from CA

Great fun. Worked the whole sprint on 14.053.
Thanks to Everyone that worked me.



W4TMW Operated by: Tom, 6184T from GA

Another fun sprint has come and gone. I started on 15M with no takers, then to 20 for
the balance of the first hour. Went to 40M for a while but decided I'd have better luck
finding David, KI6BHB our bonus station, back on 20M. I never did try 80.

The only DX worked was Len, SM6CLU on 40M. Thanks Len for staying up late for the SKS.

My station - TS480S @90W, 3el Triband yagi, OCFD and homebrew straight key.

Thanks to all for the great participation. 73 Tom



WB5NPW Operated by: Jesse, 5633C from LA
