K7TKT Operated by: Brian

Didn't have much time but it was fun. 73, Brian



K9KHJ Operated by: Danny

Had less than 1 hour to play but had a BALL! Conditions were tremendous and the other ops were just fantastic. Very pleased to find Paul, NG7Z, on both 20m and 40m. Also caught N0TA on 20 and 40. Running QRP is sometimes tough in these events, but not tonight.



WA2JSG Operated by: Curt

Sorry gang, didn't get in 'till late. But did catch Paul (Bonus). I promise a better memory next month ;-)



NE7D Operated by: Rock

Wow, forgot about SKS until only 31 minutes left! Jumped on 40M for the last half hour. So not much of a score, but fun away and met a few members I hadn't worked before. 73, Rock



W5ZR Operated by: Bert

Missed the first hour. Conditions were down a bit from the great condx we had last week. Tnx to all who called. 73



NTA Operated by: John

Great evening for me - a personal best. Excellent propagation on 20 and 40, and fantastic participation. I started on 20 and switched to 40 after the first hour - maybe a little early, but there were a bunch of folks on 40 (including NG7Z). Thanks for the Q's. K3/100, doublet and vertical, K2RFP logger.



WSZV Operated by: Eldon

Had a good time and managed to catch Paul on 20m and 40m looking forward to wes
using Jupiter at 100w into 1200ft loop up 55ft and a cootie key



KBETU Operated by: Phil

First hour was the pits, but the second hour more than made up for it. Another fun sprint. Thanks to all. 72/73 Phil



NV9X Operated by: Jim

Another fine SKCC event. Had fun. Keep them coming. Thanks to NG7Z for 2 bonus contacts. Thanks to K9PMV for my big 1 mile DX contact hi hi. Thanks to N0TA for 2 contacts. Thanks to SKCC.



W5PJW Operated by: Mark

Could only be on sporadically during the sprint but had fun when I could pay attention to the radio. Didn't hear anything on 15-10, but 20-40 were busy. Didn't hear anyone on the 40M novice section. Better use it or lose it. 20M FT450/J-38, 40M Drake B-Line/ 50's model Vibroplex. 73 to all.



WS9E Operated by: Joe

It sounded like a pretty good turnout, tonight. 20, 40 and 80 all had quite a few good signals. My wife was ironing a few feet from the shack and the TV was on. It's a good thing that I am good at multi-tasking hi hi.
Tonight I used the stealth dipole up 20 feet, the old Omni V and the speed-x key. See everyone next time.



WDECO Operated by: Mitch

Strong signals into Missouri tonight with lots of activity.

Thanks to some of the Missouri Outlaws worked tonight: W0DE (Stu), KI0I/P (Mark), WA0BGV (Slim), and even got N0UMP (Bill) this time. Always fun to work them.

K3 100 Watts, Mosley Yagi and dipole, and SKCC NT9K key.



NG7Z Operated by: Paul

What a hoot that was! Spent the first 10 minutes on 15. The band was open to the east coast and midwest. But no answers to CQ's after that. Too bad more folks didn't check the band. Then went to 20 until 0115Z. Lots of activity there as was expected. Then went to 40. Maybe I went to 40 too soon as many CQs went unanswered. It perked up after 0130Z. Highest number worked was Randy in Tacoma, WA 8169 just south of us. Only 3 VE's in the log. Where are those guys? Nice to work many familiar calls. Are you all getting excited for the K3Y event in January? Thanks for the Q's. 73 Paul NG7Z



KA8HFN Operated by: Larry

This was a GREAT SPRINT. I only operated one hour. I had a GREAT time.
Thanks for all of the QSO's. 73, Larry.



KD2JC Operated by: Joe

Another enjoyable Sprint. Condx not bad but did miss a few weak ones with QRN/QRM, sorry. 20 meters pretty much active up until the end. Thanks to all that worked me. Used the trusty J-38 all evening. 73



VA3AMX Operated by: Eric

Weird propagation. Signals were strong but was difficult to make a QSO.
It was a lot of fun anyway. I love this SKS. 72's Eric



K7VM Operated by: Craig

I used the SKCC Sprinter logging program for the first time. Very easy to use and a real help. Thanks for this tool.



W4CUX Operated by: Bill

Loads of fun. This was my first event with my new Hendrix PFR3. Worked both 20 and 40 meters with great results. Thanks to all who responded. Looking froward to next event.

I also heard a few calls I have not worked before !



WABGV Operated by: Slim

Slow start but fast and furious on the end. didn't find many ops up on the old novice portion of 40 meter. I thought that was unusual. Worked only 2 of my fellow Missouri Outlaws, WD0ECO and KI0I. 73 til next event de Slim

W4HH Operated by: Joe

First SKCC Sprint -- and I only worked last 30 minutes of contest. 5 watts to OCF dipole.




VE7KBN Operated by: Ken

Thnx again for the sprints. Lots of fun. Heard the bonus stn on
15 and 20 but no QSO- my vertical skipped right over him I guess!
he was not far from my QTH here in BC.



W8BFX Operated by: Dennis

Great fun as always, especially with improving propagation. Thanks to all.



W4CJV Operated by: Wayne

Operated QRP. Great conditions on 20 and 40. Thanks for all who put up with what little I sent out there.



W4TMW Operated by: Tom

Another great SKS and a chance to work many old friends. It seemed like all bands were in pretty good shape as I was able to work members on all the bands I tried;15,20,40 and 80M. Station this time was Elecraft K2/100, homebrew st. key, 3el yagi and CL/OCF dipole. 73 to all....Tom



KF7KPL Operated by: Gil

I am a bit out of practice as I have not been on the air a lot lately. Got a late start but met some new members this Sprint. Ended the Sprint with a great chat with Ed W7GVE, thanks Ed. Not my best score tonight but sure did enjoy the event, thanks to all the contacts I was able to make. 73 de Gil KF7KPL



W9CC Operated by: Larry

Got started late. Conditions seem pretty good inspite of the A Index.



W9GFB Operated by: Jerry

Great fun. just could not get kc8ltl's state thru QRM. Sorry Ken. Just parked on 40 for two hours.



W7GVE Operated by: Ed

Great turnout--- with 10 and 15 mtrs opening up I bet the W.E.S will be wild if
we get a turnout like this.... This was one on the best SKS ever.... 73 ED



K9PMV Operated by: Jerry

Hello all. Have not spent much time on 80 meters in the past. So, I camped out on 3557 khz and was prepared to call CQ for the duration. It was fun. 16 QSOs tonight. First QSO was with Jim KA0CSW. Sorry it took so many tries to get the info Jim but your QRP finally made it here. 73 to all and see you at the next event



N3EIN Operated by: Matt

The thunderstorms held off in southeastern PA (for once) so I started at 0000Z on 15 meters, as it was still strong. I caught NG7Z there right out of the gate for the first QSO, stayed for two more, but few ops. Worked Rich-AA9L on 40 meters and Drew-AF2Z had a nice signal on 80 meters, but once again heard few SKCC calls there. Then I tried a very busy 20 meters, working Ed-W7GVE at 0025 with a moderate signal (I heard him later very strong into PA) and it wasnt hard to find Paul again with his big signal from WA handing out bonus points. Thanks to all for a fun evening. CUL in the WES!

VE7LAJ Operated by: Andy

Condx were the best in a long time. Managed to work the spcl event stn on 20 and 40. Tnx Paul. Tnx to all who worked me and especially tnx to the organizers who make SKCC possible. 73.



W7SRM Operated by: Steve

Good conditions for me tonight. Good strong sigs too. Fun event and even snagged the bonus stn twice. Got two new WASC states including Oregon. Thanks Rocky!! 73 Steve



NUMP Operated by: Bill

Wow! Lots of stations heard. Had a good time. Got to work fellow outlaw WD0ECO, Mitch in Jefferson City. Good to see so many people on the air...Bill 73




N5RDN Operated by: Rob

Great conditions here. Harold (VE5BCS), sri 'bout my bad sending to you. Was trying out a different key. Big signal from Rob(AJ4SB),TU. I enjoyed this SKS very much! 73/Rob



W1EJ Operated by: Ed

Got my doublet up a little higher; wow what a difference.



K1NV Operated by: Jon

I got the 5-BTV vertical mounted and tuned on the backyard chain link fence just in time to set up the TS-940S on the workbench for the sprint. With mountains all around the new QTH near Loyalton, CA, I wasn't expecting to make many QSO's, but the vertical seemed to work better than expected.

I apologize for moving to CA from NV, but I hope the other NV stations will continue to provide contacts for SKS and WES folks. I didn't hear any this evening, but I didn't hear any CA stations either; probably propagation.

If the HOA doesn't give me a hard time, I hope to put up some better antennas in the near future. The mountain air is very refreshing after living in the stifling heat of an everlasting southern Nevada summer.

I had QSO's on 15M, 20M, and 40M. NG7Z couldn't copy me on 15M, but I caught Paul on 20M. The biggest challenge was working Ed, W7GVE, in AZ. Toward the end of the session, the auroral flutter became very evident on eastern signals. I wonder how the VHF bands were faring back that way?


First SKS operation from CA



KX1NH Operated by: Randy

Nice conditions on 40m. TNX to all who worked me. CU next time 73 Randy



KKI Operated by: Jack

Bands weren't too bad. Started on 20 and even managed to get a couple on 80. Another fun even. NG7Z was nice and loud on 20. Thanks for being out there. Look forward to the next. 73, jack



WA1AR Operated by: Alan

Late start, early exit. Only S&P this time and logged with pencil and paper.

Alan



WB8ENE Operated by: Art

Only worked the first hour of the sprint. Started off on 20, then moved to 40 for the last 15 minutes. Thanks for the contacts and see you in the next sprint. 73, Art



KE5YUM Operated by: Terry

Great sprint as always. I stayed on 20 for the hour that I was on and had plenty of oppotunities for contacts. Thanks to all who worked me.



W8VN Operated by: Dennis

Fun as always. Finally worked a bonus station!



W4FOA Operated by: Tony

Some very loud signals on 20, despite the WWV numbers.



KJ4LEN Operated by: Ray

Had a great time. Used my FT840 and J38. Ray



NW2K Operated by: Dean

Good conditions on 80-40-20, and I should have tried 15 to catch Paul. Lots of new numbers and great activity. Thanks to all and see you next time. 90W, matchbox, 80M loop at 30 feet.



K1PUB Operated by: Chas

Started on 20 M then went to 40 around 0100Z. 40 was a bit strange, sort of a hollow echo effect on many signals--multipath due to solar flair? QSO rate started off well but sort of petered out in last half hour. Thank you Paul, NG7Z for the bonus QSO late in the sprint.

This was the first sprint where I had an LP-Pan and PowerSDR/IF panadapter working with my K3. Found it useful for S&P, and especially for quickly finding a free frequency to call CQ (of course I still QRLed).

73 es see y'all next month.



KKEX Operated by: Rick

Started late on 20M, lots of good signals. Went to 15M and picked up some new numbers..good signals there also. Went to 80M and there was K9PMV with a big signal...quit early due to phone calls....thanks to all, 73 Rick




WIS Operated by: Kieth

Wasn't able to work SKS as XYL Karen kd0arc was recuperating after gallbladder removal in the AM and I was keeping an eye on her. She seems to be doing fine this morning, amazing. I will make up for it this weekend during the CWFUN event. Hope to work some of you then, be sure to register to get your word groups before the event. http://www.cwfun.org

VE5BCS Operated by: Harold

The test was real good my best score. Tnx to all worked and fine contest.Harold



AA2XB Operated by: Frank

Only able to work the last hour of sprint.Conditions seemed quite good, with most stations from MI. to WA. comming in at 599 on my carolina windom ant. up 35 feet.



K5BZH Operated by: Jim

Had planned to work the entire 2 hours. Before the event started I received a phone call from Charity Dawn, one of my daughters, she informed me that she had rolled her vehicle on the way home and they took her to the ER at a local hospital as precautionary measures, could I come get her when she was released, her husband Christopher was out of pocket at the time.

YF and I headed to the hospital, it took a lot longer than we thought and frankly we were a bit concerned. She did get released and was told she wouldn't be working for a couple of days. Her hubby was there when she was released, he took her home. She was very lucky. She was executing a turn off one interstate onto another when she unknowingly hit some fluid on the road that a truck had lost out of its transmission, her vehicle started sliding and she hit a guard rail, rolled it three times, apparently it was totaled. Thankfully she wasn't.

We got home ten mintues before the Sprint was over, I managed to work one station, WA0BGV, and get to use my new "C" after the SKCC number. Thanks Slim. Hope your score was a lot better than mine.





W7CQW Operated by: Quint

Still using temp dipole at the new Idaho QTH but will have a Carolina Windom 80 up at 80 feet and a R8 Cushcraft Vertical Dipole on the air before the next sprints. Regards to all and 73. Quint W7CQW



W2HWW Operated by: Tony

Looked like a lot of activity on 40M, then the power failed midway through the sprint. Still a good time on the air.



NUYN Operated by: Dennis

Good conditions here and it sounded like a good turnout. Thanks to all contacts, Paul NG7Z for bonus points, John N0TA for contacts on 20 and 40, and Dean NW2K for the quick contact at the very end. 73.



KEN Operated by: Eliot

Lots of fun - good conditions! This bodes will for future Sprints as the cycle picks up. I have not participated in over a year - new landlord willing to let me have an antenna. Can't wait! Peace KE0N

Operating position witj J38 and End Fed



W3NP Operated by: Dave

A string of strong thunderstorms with fierce lighting and flooding rain in my part of WV forced me to keep grounding the antenna throughout the sprint. I stayed on 20 for the entire 2 hour period as it was the quietest band and fortunately I was able to make qso's right up until the end as the band was in good shape and held out until I worked ID just before 0200. John K8JD - the summer lightning was right here!!
Was able to work Paul NG7Z when the pileup on 20 was at a low point.
5 watts out with the TT Omni VII and I used two of my bugs - the 1956 Presentation and my newest, the Vibroplex Anniversary model.



K4SC Operated by: Chuck

Great Sprint and lots of stations. I completed my Tribune requirements during this run.



KL7GLL Operated by: Gene

Only on for 30 minutes but activity was fast and furious, both on 20 and 40 mtrs. Wonderful turnout and great event. Keep 'em coming. And may the propagation blossom!!



AA9L Operated by: Rich

Got in late but had fun. Stayed on forty meters and never wanted for a QSO.



KII/P Operated by: Mark

worked the sprint from my hideaway on the ridge above Lost Creek about 6 mi so. of Garden City,no power lines near so super quiet.Ran my 706 Icom off a battery and my laptop from an inverter where the trouble arose.The inverter was rf sensitive when on 20m and would shut down the pc..bummer A pretty slow start messing with modern technology!! Well after hitting 40m and running 7049 it was a blast ,withnlots of stations on the band and sounding great.Some 40db over9 sigs were heard,and many qrp sigs were a lot easier to copy from the boondocks hihi...Well thanks all for the qso`s and hope the condx keep getting better as the wx cools down.73 Mark KI0I Icom706- 20m half square@30ft-40/80m inv vee @40ft- plain ole straight key on wood base (thank God K5BZH`s Daughter is OK)



N5DUX Operated by: Tommy

Yikes! QRN. Wiped me out!

Rig: IC-706MkIIG @ 100W into Butternut Vertical



W9SAY Operated by: Chas

TNX Bill, WV1N for my one and only SKS QSO. Only had an hour to play tonight. Out of SKS I did QSO wid PU2AIL on 15M.



KD5JHE Operated by: Jerry

Started out going to make many, many qso's. The bug started sticking on me and had to switch to the Flameproof. The mini-computer for logging was not plugged up and the battery tried to die. Everyone I had warned not to bother me either called or text me. Relatives came in and wanted to talk louder than the rig. Murphy rules. But I had a great time and made a few Q's. Always fun. 73



K5ENA Operated by: John

Made several contacts on 20 and 40. Always enjoy our sprints.

73,
John, K5ENA



N8BB Operated by: Werner

Only a few minutes of air time, still busy on other things like getting ready to retire, I am on the verge of every ones dream and getting nervous about it, think, full time radio with no time outs for work. Thanks to the 3 I worked.



KE7YTE Operated by: Tom

I've been away for awhile so good to be back.
