WB5UAA Operated by: Guy

Great conditions! Glad to have this week off from teaching high school and have some time to work the world famous SKCC monthly sprint! Thanks everybody!



N7EDK Operated by: Ed

My first chance to work a two hour sprint. I'm on holiday at my daughter's here in Spanish Fork, UT. My normal QTH is Marana, AZ. I'm using my KX1 at 1 watt, and a Buddipole vertical set up in her backyard, with lots of power lines around. I'm surprised I'm doing ok here, no real problem from the lines. I was only able to work on 20 meters, didn't get a chance to get 40 meters set on the vertical. None the less,it was fun as always with an SKCC event. See everyone next month in the WES !! 73 de Utah....it's cold ! Ed



K2HT Operated by: Dick

Started out on wrong antenna, KO1U has great ears to copy me on 20 with that antenna error. Got to work Slim WB0BGV on 2 bands. Thanks for the QSO's and best Thanksgiving wishes to all.
73 Dick K2HT



W9GFB Operated by: Jerry

Great fun!
Had to quit early.



K7TKT Operated by: Brian

I'm working on learning to use a bug. This was a good chance to put it on the air. Only had to apologize and dive for the straight key once. Had a good time. Thanks and 73, Brian



KB1OIQ Operated by: Andy

Either my new antenna is as deaf as a doornail, or band conditions were rather poor. I heard S7-S9 noise on 80m and 40m. I managed to make 5 QSOs for which I'm thankful. It was fun(!) to get back into an SKCC event...it has been a couple of months since my last event. Happy Thanksgiving everybody!



KC9KHG Operated by: Randy

My first 2-hour sprint in a while. Most contacts were made on 40m,1 on 80m & 1 on 20m...thanks Ed,W7GVE!!
Happy Thanksgiving to all!!

73
Randy



K9SKC Operated by: Danny

What an honor to work the sprint as K9SKC. Did my best to get back and forth between 20 and 40 (my only bands). Heard some mighty BIG signals tonight--N0JL, W5ZR and AJ4SB made my ears ring.

It was really fun to work Jon, K1NV, on both bands. I'd know that note anywhere.

Thanks for the privilege and hats off to a fine, fine group of ops.

5 watts of fightin' fury---K9KHJ as K9SKC



W4CUX Operated by: Bill

I was tied up till the very end, and wasn't going to bother. I switched on the rig just to listen, and heard a loud CQ from NW2K just before the end. I couldn't resist. So I had a whopping one QSO tonight. Hopefully more time next time.
73 - Bill - W4CUX



KLUW Operated by: Russ

Great band conditions but got a very late start.



KJV Operated by: Jerry

My first but probably not my last.



WDECO Operated by: Mitch

I forgot all about the SKS until I just happened to hear Ed, W7GVE, on 20M while tuning around at about 0115 utc. So I missed most of the contest but did work Slim, WA0BGV, and Mark, KI0I, from Missouri. Then got into a 30 minute ragchew with another MO SKCC station but they weren't contesting.

So not much help to my fellow Missouri Outlaws tonight.

73, Mitch



W1EJ Operated by: Ed

Got late start at 00:20 but kept going to the end! All 20M until 01:40 then it died.



KKI Operated by: Jack

Nice evening for the Sprint. Worked 40 meters mostly...always enjoy hanging around the old novice portion. Used the "Cootie" key tonight. Many thanks for all the contacts. Catch you all on again...73, jack



NJL Operated by: Jim

Mostly with LTA sideswiper. Also used NT9K Pro-Pump and Vibroplex Blue Racer. Which did I use to work you?



WABGV Operated by: Slim

Worked a lot of CA and MO.... Nice busy sprint. I'm ready for another one.



N3PDT Operated by: Doug

First time QRP for what seems like quite a while. Thanks to all who worked to dig me out. Thought I'd do a little better than I did with good condx we had here, but didn't get through to a lot of staions I heard. Thanks to Danny, K9SKC for finding me. First time a special bonus station actually called me!

Len KC0RSX, #14



NUMP Operated by: Bill

Worked mostly 40 meters. Lots of stations on and I had a great time. It was really great to hear so many familar call and some new ones. Always got to work Ed, W7GVE. Thanks Danny for the K9SKC Q. I'll be looking for more fun on the next one...73 Bill




AE5VB Operated by: Hugh

Only had about a hour of fun this time thanks all :)



W3NP Operated by: Dave

I thought the bands were a bit strange this evening. Started out on 20 where the signals were very "watery" sounding -maybe auroral? Some signals on 40 were the same. Worked Mark KI0I on 80 and then my next contact was Mark on 160. I just got the temporary setup shown in the photo hooked up about 5 minutes before the sprint began. I have only had the Eagle for less than a week now and this was the first "event" for it. I was very impressed with it's receiver - very quiet!! I ran it at between 4 and 5 watts. Antenna was the KLM-43A on 20, the CF zepp on 80 and 40 and the half wave dipole at 40' on 160. Keys were the German WW2 straight key and my 1915 Vibroplex Original. I am looking forward to getting my station set up more permanently in the next week or so. Had fun as usual...73 de Dave

Long day today and had little time. Nice to work my bestest buddy Jeff , K9JP and had fun. Conditions were strange at my QTH .... heavy QRN on 40 and didnt get out well on 20 .... better luck next SKS .... To all SKCC members and their families a Very Happy Thanksgiving !!!!!




KB1NHV Operated by: Art

Only worked 5 stations but enjoyable non the less.



AJ4SB Operated by: Rob

Portable in Dayton, Tenn. My first sprint using my new Vibroplex Blue Racer. Please forgive the sloppy fist (this time.)



K4UFT Operated by: Ted

Only 3 QSOs (1 on 20, 2 on 40) all bands very noisy here in upstate SC.

FT-950 @ 50W to end-fed wire. Navy Flameproof key.




KKEX Operated by: Rick

My first QSO with Dean NW2K on 20M & I realized I was at 4 watts, so why not leave it there and see what happens. Went to 40M and the band was OK, a few CQ's and Danny K9SKC called, Thanks Danny for taking the special station position & giving me a call. Bill N0UMP on 40M was 20/S9 and I couldn't get thru the pile up Bill had going. Found Missouri outlaws KI0I & WA0BGV lurking on 80M, My CQ's there went unanswered so off to 40M and pounced on Jack KK0I, Jack that "Cootie" sure sounds nice....
Thanks to all for a fun SKS, hope that everyone has a great "Thanksgiving"
73 Rick
p.s. George N2JNZ, heard you and called but no joy...



K6CSL Operated by: Bert

I did all of tonights Sprint on 20M and 5W QRP since my next event this evening was the Fox Hunt on 80M. 73's to all and wishing you all a happy and safe Thanksgiving Holiday. I'll hope to work some of our members in CQ WW CW this weekend. Bert, K6CSL



W9CC Operated by: Larry

I got a late start but got there! I wouldn't miss this for anything. It is always fun. QRN was nasty on 40 but 20 was clear. This time I was using my McElroy Stream Key, Model 300, the all chrome job. Just got it last Saturday at the Ft. Wayne, IN, hamfest. 73, Larry



K1NV Operated by: Jon

10M was pretty quiet except for the JA contest participants. I had heard LW3EX about 20 minutes before the Sprint, but Walt wasn't there by 0000 hr. UTC.

20M was the band of choice for most of the Sprint with 31 QSO's from ME(K1NIT) to AK (WL7WH) and points in between. ME, NH(N8CMS), MA(KO1U), and CT(K1LEE) were worked which doesn't usually happen for me during these Sprints.

K9SKC was worked on 20M and 40M; thanks, Danny! Was my signal really 578 on 20M and 577 on 40M or was there some auroral effect? It sounded OK on the monitor.

Another rare one was AE0P in SD. Also, Brian, K7TKT, was booming in on 40M from Idaho. Bob, WL7WH, was his usual 599-plus into this northern CA QTH.

The Sprint ended right on time with a final 599/599 QSO with Ed, W1EJ, in CA. See you for the EU-Sprint.





AC5CW Operated by: Eric

It's been a while for me to do the S.K.S. Heard a lot of stations. But i could only operate the first hour, and time flew by. N0UMP wins strongest signal all night for me.



AC7T Operated by: Doug

I enjoyed participating in SKS after such a long break. The sunspots really helped. 20m was particularly good until around 010z. I had trouble hitting my stried on 40m. thanks to the good ops for making this such a fun event.



NUYN Operated by: Dennis

Conditions didn't seem that good, but I was able to hear Japanese station JA6GCE on 20 and Columbian station HK3R on 40. The stations I worked seemed to be in all directions. Thanks and 73.



K6HTN Operated by: Kate

First time in quite a while that I've been able to work the SKS. It was also very obvious that I haven't practiced with my straight key for quite a while. Better do some before Straight Key Night! Used my J-38 with my K3. On 20 meters, the ant is a GAP Eagle vertical. On 40 meters, I used an 80 meter doublet, very NVIS, so all those contacts were in CA. Thanks for the fun, guys! Happy Thanksgiving.



KD2JC Operated by: Joe

Another FB Sprint. Lots of activity on 20M, 15 and 10 meters quiet here on the East Coast. Started on time but finished early. Thanks to all. 73



NW2K Operated by: Dean

Matt, N3EIN, I'm sorry that I could not complete the QSO. 40M was very long at that time and I could not hear well to PA (I sure needed that multiplier!). 20M was in good shape with 20 QSOs and several new numbers. 35 QSOs on 40M, which was long, and only 2 QSOs on 80M. Bill, W4CUX, got the heart rate up as we raced to the finish line. Thanks to all for all QSOs. 75W, matchbox, 80M loop at 30 feet.



W5ZR Operated by: Bert

Missed the first hour so it was 40M and 80M for one hour. Used my new all band grouund mounted vertical, and it worked well in all directions. Conditions were rather good...73 Bert



KA2KGP Operated by: Tom

20 m. was open for a while here for a while, 40 & 80 were in good shape too.
Lots-o-signals & QRM on 80 m. All-in-all, another good sprint. 73




WB8ENE Operated by: Art

Bands seemed a bit quieter this time. Maybe it was due to the storms in the northeast part of the country. I see that Missouri was well represented again - 30 of my contacts were with stations from Missouri. I only made one contact on 20 and one on 80. The rest were on 40. 73, and see you on the air.

KJ4LEN Operated by: Ray

Nice sprint. Had contacts on 20,40 and 80M. Picked up Brian AE0P in SD( 1st time in a sprint)and got some new numbers. I hope everyone has a very nice Thanksgiving and I'll see everybody next time. Ray



K9JP Operated by: Jeff

K1NIT Operated by: Bill

Great fun! Wish I could have worked the full two hours.



WEA Operated by: Tj

Just happened to hear someone calling SKS so I hooked up my bug and since he was so strong, I turned down to 300mW for my first QRPp SKS. I did not stay on much so only worked 2 stations but enjoyed it :)



KE7YTE Operated by: Tom

I had 7 Qs the first hour on 20m. The second hour on 40m only worked 2 Qs. Should have stayed on 20m. Thanks for coming back to my 5w. and thanks for the fun evening.



WL7WH Operated by: Bob

Could only work a short time, had to plow snow....as always was fun!!!



WB2UWU Operated by: Finn

I generally use the Japanese WW2 key. The Western Electric Mini Key which is mounted on the side of the Ten-Tec R4020 is not as comfortable, but put there for portable use. The story of the Japanese key is on my QRZ.com page. The antenna is an old 5 band vertical on top of an eight foot pole with five overhead radials all running in an NE direction.

N3EIN Operated by: Matt

Thanks for trying Dean; score is corrected.....maybe 80 meters is our best band for NY-PA. Jon, my T8 was because of the very light (and musical) vibrato that gave you a unique sound...but as Dave in WV mentioned, signals did have a different character about them during SKS. Thanks to all in SKCC.

K1PUB Operated by: Chas

Able to operate only the last 35 minutes, got a run going on 40M so just stayed there. Thanks to K9SKC, who actually called me rather than vv. Things must have been slow at the end of the sprint!



KBETU Operated by: Phil

Okay guys, I thought it was next week and when that was corrected, I got on the air tonight and discovered I was a day late. I'll miss the WES and the NAQCC Sprint next month but hope to be back for the SKS. And in the meantime, hope you all have a nice Thanksgiving, and a very happy and merry Christmas.
