Lots of good signals tonight. Some band noise both on 40 & 80 mtrs, but very enjoyable sprint. Looking forward to next time.

N8KR Operated by: Ken

Only got to work the last 20 minutes but enjoyed it as always!



K5BZH Operated by: Jim

Ran 4 watts again to a ground mounted 14AVQ. Worked CO, GA, MI, MO, NY, WA, & WI.



KN1NHV Operated by: Art

A great Sprint. Bands were very busy, worked 20, 40 and 80. Happy to make 12 contacts and all SKCC contacts.



KE4KY Operated by: Glenn

Really had fun for this one tonite. Used an older Speed-X key with the Yaesu FT-897D. The noise on 80 was terrible, but squeezed out enough from 40 and 80 combined to get 40 QSO's tonite. (20m not so good)

Had fun...as usual.

KE4KY



N3PDT Operated by: Doug

Better condx than I thought we'd have tonight. Stayed on 20m and 40m, and 40 was pretty crowded. Worked a few new ones, and a few regulars. Only got one fellow Missouri Outlaw, our ring leader Slim, WA0BGV. Thanks Slim, you were banging in here tonight.

First time sprinting with the new bug. Went well for the most part. I tried to call Dean by Gordon's name, and had a tough time with Jaime, XE1CHE (I kept dropping a dit in his call).

As always a good time. Thanks to all who participate and to all who work to put these together!

K7HAP Operated by: Hap

Enjoyed. Thanks to N0TA for patiently trying 2x w/o qsl -- my key fell apart then flex went lala --sorry.



NTA Operated by: John

That was a struggle! Very surprised that I didn't hear anyone on 20m! All Q's on 40m and it felt like a QRP contest - lots of 559 reports and very few 599 reports. But, it was still a bunch of fun! K3, vertical & doublet, K2RFP logger.



WA5BUC Operated by: Fred

20 & 40 were good. Tnx to all who participated tonight. 72's.



K7CHS Operated by: Rick

My first sprint and I got home late from work, of course. I only got about 40 minutes in on this one but was lots of fun. I want to say thanks to Ed W7GVE for letting me waist 5 minutes of my 40 trying to get him to hear me. hi hi (we are 12 miles apart as the crow flys and we were on 20m). Maybe next sprint I will get my priorities straight and get my full 2 hours in. Thanks to all I contacted.



WA1VIL Operated by: Greg

Fun SKS, thanks to you who pulled out my QRP signal. Special thanks to Alan WA1AR for being the first victim of my new bug-I have a ways to go before I put that to general use! 73 to all and hope to work you next time-especially those of you with the right letters in your call for Pete's diabolical bonus in the next WES-HI!



W4HAY Operated by: Frank

20 was fading fast, but 40 & 80 were in good shape, so the ol' J-38 was singing its song. Great sprint. Hope everyone had as much fun as I did.



K4ORD Operated by: Riley

Was mowing grass all day, so was very tired and only got in on the last 42 minutes but enjoyed it, nice group of cw ops in the SKS.
Rig was K3@ 80W ant's were dipoles, key was J-38 I started in ham radio with in 1959.
Thanks to all, 73 Riley



K2YWE Operated by: Dan

My first SKS. Fell into it when I heard "CW SKS" on 40m and looked it up. I started 50 minutes into event. I'll probably do the whole two hours next time. Very nostalgic. Cheers!

K8TEZ Operated by: Larry

All contacts were on 40 meters for this sprint...thanks everyone for the calls...TNX Jon K1NV (2609T) for California (my farthest one in this sprint)best73's to all. Larry K8TEZ




K1NV Operated by: Jon

20M was pretty good for the first hour, but I think everyone went to the lower frequencies after 0100Z. I noticed that VE5BCS has a "T" after his number. Good going, Harold!

There was auroral flutter on most of the 40M signals, but signal levels from the east and midwest were still fairly strong out here in CA. I decided to just hunt around in the second hour, so my QSO total wasn't what I had hoped for. There seemed to be lots of CA and MO SKCC'ers in evidence but I don't think we Californians will be able to top the "Show Me" state guys anytime soon.

I wonder where the Nevada and Wyoming guys are hiding out?



KC5GXL Operated by: Dan

Was only on for about 1/2 hour, but sure had fun! Even picked up a new T or two!

See you next month.

73,

Dan



WABGV Operated by: Slim

Confounded time change got me started an hour early. Even got an answer to my call. But discovered my error when no one else came back to my call. Later, started at correct time and made good my first erronious contact. We had a gud yuk over it.
Had Qs with some of the Missouri Possee.... KI0I,WD0ECO, N0UYN, K0KEX, N0UMP, W0SZV AND N3PDT.
Had a surprise 40 mtr Qso with NK8O. Chas lives near the MO-KS border on the KS side and I live just across the line on the MO side. I ususlly have trouble with the KS-mult because it is so close. Tnx Chas!
Qrn built up toward the end of the sprint for me. Last few minutes yielded very few contacts.



AF3Z Operated by: Jim

I got on with only a half hour of the sprint left. But when everybody kept operating past 9:00 local, I remembered Daylight Saving Time! So, I had another hour left. :-) I started on 40m and then went to 20m. With 18 minutes to go, AE7PG (#7562) and I got into a great qso that lasted about a half hour... We didn't exchange SKCC numbers until the very end of the QSO. I'm not sure if he was operating the SKS or not, but we both seemed very willing to have a good rag chew even if it meant sacrificing some points... ;-) Thanks everybody... and thanks DST! --Jim, AF3Z



VE5CUL Operated by: Brian

Thanks Jon,Greg and Ed for the 3 qso's. I had S9 QRN here and didn't know how it
would go. I hope to get some antenna work done soon. 73 - Brian

KKI Operated by: Jack

Was another fun SKS! I missed last month's events as was out of the country for the month of February. Stayed on 40 most of the event and then 80 towards the end. Bands were a little noisy, but 40 had plenty of signals. Heard my buddy, N2JNZ, George with his 1 watt signal...glad to help out. Thanks for all the others out there...some very fine signals and some very nice fists I may add. Used the "old gal", my 1919 Vibroplex Original...she's still my favorite bug. Thanks again and see you next event...73, jack



KE5YUM Operated by: Terry

I stayed on 20 but didn't have a lot of success. I did work Dean NW2K, and I am thankful for that contact. I hope it was band conditions. Maybe better luck next time. All the best, Terry



KL7GLL Operated by: Gene

Glad to get back to SKS after a long absence. And so nice to see a large number of members who do not yet have their "T" operating in this event. Also fine condx so could copy QRP callers. Worked 3 bands: 40, 20, and 80, with great activity on all. Rare but did not work any station on more than one band. Best prop was to New England and Great Lakes areas, but also worked West Coast: CA, WA, & BC.



KJ4LEN Operated by: Ray

Great participation tonight. I was able to work about an hour and had a lot of fun. Ft840 @75w and 40m dipole at 40'. Used my J37 key. See everyone next time. Ray

VE7KBN Operated by: Ken

Decided to go QRP this time and there were some who I tried to work but
it was a one way street! Worked 20 only. Listened briefly
on 15 but heard nothing. Usual fun and a good event. Thanks.

W3NP Operated by: Dave

First QSO (as is often the case) was Ed W7GVE on 20. The 20 meter band was not bad this evening. Went to 40 after about 1/2 hour and it was full of activity. I kept tuning up from 7049 and worked stations all the way up to 7068 - glad to see us spreading out a bit - good for us QRP S&P ops. Went to 80 for the last 20 minutes or so. Conditions were good on all bands that I checked and a lot of activity as well. It was a fun event.

Rig: Ten Tec Eagle @ 5 watts. Keys: Nye Master Key and Vibroplex Lightning Bug.
Antennas: CF zepp @ 45' on 80 and 40, KT-34A @ 50' on 20.

K4JPN Operated by: Steve

Started out QRP, but could not break thru, so then went QRO to 25W and had a ball. Unfortunately with QRO the Tennessee Valley Indians on only one TV messed up the wife's shows. Oh well, wait till next month. 73, Steve K4JPN



WB8ENE Operated by: Art

Only operated the first hour of the sprint. Didn't hear much activity on 20, so I went to 40 and made all of my contacts on that band. Enjoyable as always. 73, and see you in the next sprint, Art



KA2KGP Operated by: Tom

Another nice sprint with decent bands, even 20m. was open at the start. Rig: TenTec Argosy II at 5w. into either a 5 band gnd. mtd. vert. or a 5 band dipole up 25 feet. 73 to all SKS sprinters!



NUYN Operated by: Dennis

Conditions were good here, especially on 40. 12 out of my 13 contacts gave my 25 watt signal a 589 or better. I worked MO Outlaws Mark KI0I and Slim WA0BGV and heard Bill N0UMP. I also heard Luis TI2CLX on 20 early in the sprint, but he faded out before I could give him a call. Good event. 73.



WS9E Operated by: Joe

I ran the Omni 6+, stealth dipole and Speed-X key. I'm glad to hear there was aurora last night because I thought my rig was acting up as a lot of the sigs on 40 had that watery sound.
Good turn out. I had one QSO on 80, one on 20 and the rest on 40 meters. Another fun filled two hours. Thanks to all.



WIS Operated by: Kieth

I came down to do some leisurely operating on 20 meters (rare band for me) and had 3 nice qso's. On way to work this morning I was talking with Jim KA0CSW on 2 meters and he asked me if I had worked the SKS last night!! HI HI Oh well, its not my lowest score ever. Worked KB2RAW using three different keys, N6OSB/qrp and K0JQZ/qrp/0 Frank a POTA station in Ridgeway State Park near Ouray Colorado in
the campground there. Fun evening here in MN. 73



NUMP Operated by: Bill

I started out looking for the usual strong signals but didn't hear to many. I began working anyone I could hear and then things seemed to improve. Had a great time as usual. What a bunch of fine ops.
Slim thought because it was spring that it was time to clean up the hideout, but the only one who showed up there was Mark KI0I and I don't think he did much cleaning, he just played with those darn radios. Ran into some outlaws, seems like they're everywhere. Worked Slim, WB0BGV, Mark, KI0I and Mitch, WD0ECO. Looking forward to the next one. See you there. Bill N0UMP Outlaw.



AA9L Operated by: Rich

Had fun using my Vibroplex. Getting to like that key!
Great sprint and looking forward to the next one.



K9PMV Operated by: Jerry

Hello SKCCers Got in the last hour of this event. Decided to do a single band, 80 Meters, this time. I was pleased to see that the band was quite active with good signals from 3.550 to 3.560. See you all next time. 73 to all.



KG3W Operated by: Scotty

Hi all! My name is Scotty. First time doing a SKCC sprint. Have done a couple of NAQCC sprints. The 2 hour time is perfect. 20 was open. Called for ten minutes but no takers. 40 M seemed to be the best bet for my area. Using a basic K3 @ 5 watts, to an all band dipole @ 24feet. Got back on the air last December after being off for 27 years. Love CW! "72" de KG3W Scotty



VE5BCS Operated by: Harold

Only had time to join at the very end of the Sprint. Used my Ten-Tec Argonaut II at 1 watt to the end-fed random wire. Key used was my Bencher RJ-2.



AF2Z Operated by: Drew

Got a late start, otherwise probably would have gotten several hundred more QSOs, haha... Bands sounded very nice from 20m to 80m. Had nice little run on 80m at the end. Rig: Elecraft K3 at 10 watts; 100 ft wire up 30 ft; Junker straight key.
