Nice evening here in Colorado. Spent the first 1h 20m on 20m camped out on 14.051. Move to 40 for the last 40 minutes. First time for me to work a ND station! Thanks for the Q's. K3, vertical & doublet, K2RFP Sprint Logger.

Noisy night here in S. Fla. Started with my Blue Racer, but it started giving me problems, so I switched to the old J-38. Had a lot of fun!!

I hope to work you all during the FQP this weekend!!!



N3PDT Operated by: Doug

Bands were better than predicted here. Got quite a few new-to-me numbers and a few old friends, no fellow Missouri Outlaws though. Used my old Kenwood TS-520s just for fun. Man, this thing has steep skirts. Had a hard time with some sigs that weren't zero beat. Lots of fun. Thanks to all

K2HT Operated by: Dick

Thanks for the QSO's. Started out on QRP but had to go to 80 Watts because of QRN. Thanks to K9PMV for working me on two bands. Worked the following Missouri Outlaws N0UMP, KI0I/P (from deer camp I think), WD0ECO, and N0UYN.
Never heard the Number 1 Outlaw WA0BGV. Fun Sprint as always. See you folks next month. 73 Dick K2HT



KC9UNL Operated by: Curt

Lots of fun. Band Conditions could have been better on 40 meters.



K9PMV Operated by: Jerry

Called many CQs, but not many answers. Search & pounce here tonight. But a fun evening as always. 73 to all



WDECO Operated by: Mitch

Strange conditions and lots of QRN on all bands.

Dean, I didn't realize you were the bonus station until submitting my score. Thanks for the bonus contact on 40M!!!

Thanks again to W7GVE as first in the log as usual. We should consider you as one of the Outlaws...

I was about to give up on working any of the Missouri Outlaws but got Dick (K2HT), Bill (N0UMP), and ring leader Slim (WA0BGV)in the last 20 minutes. It was fun seeing a bunch of the Outlaws at the Kansas City hamfest this past weekend.

Another fun SKS. Thanks to all.

73, Mitch

I tried cqing on 10 and 15m at the start, but heard nothing. Even 20m was strangely quiet, probably due to a choppy ionosphere. I was just getting into a rhythm on 40m when some local noise source killed the band, so I called it a night. 73 everyone & TU.

I should have gone to the bathroom before I started! ;-)



KE1AF Operated by: Abel

WA5AFD Operated by: Gerald

Great fun once again! Good conditions here in OK on 20 and 40 meters for USA stations but no DX heard. Thanks to all who worked my station and those who made it all possible. Go Thunder!



KE7YTE Operated by: Tom

I sat out on my back porch this SKCC evening with my K-2 and Buddipole Vertical having a great time QRP 5W. Thanks for listening for me and allowing me to have a fun time with old friends.



KG3W Operated by: Scotty

Only my second SKCC sprint. Glad these are only 2 hours or my fingers get cramped up. Think I'm going to look for a bug at the hamfest this June. Lot's of great signals out there but the qrn was awful at my qth. Had a fun time though. Did the best my 12 watts to a dipole could muster. Thanks all! 73 de KG3W Scotty



W6FPS Operated by: Ron

Had a great time. 40 meters was working very fb at the end. This only my fourth SKCC event and I will be back for many more. SKCC are a very welcoming group. 73, Ron



WABGV Operated by: Slim

Bands were pretty noisy and there seemed to be lots of activity. Did not work Dean (or rather he did not work me) I ran frequencies on 20mtr and 40mtr rather than hunt and pounce.
Another great SKCC event. I worked my friends Mitch WD0ECO and Eldon W0SZV from Missouri and didn't hear any of the other MO Outlaws

K1NV Operated by: Jon

I had a very slow start for this sprint. The County Hunters don't like folks anywhere near "their" frequency on 20M. I think we did a good job letting them go about their business while we did ours. I only eked out four QSO's in the first half hour and not much better in the next. 20M probably wasn't in very good shape although there were a few big signals like NT0A and W7GVE to name two. I worked four 8000 series SKCC numbers: WX4RM (8064), ND9M/m (8233), K4LAC (8650) and W4RQ (8699). Maybe there could be a special multiplier for working our newest members.

See you in the EuroSprint in a week or so. Maybe the bands will be in shape for working some DX.



K1PUB Operated by: Chas

Tried QRP tonight, 4.5 watts. Makes you really work for each QSO! Started on 20M, then 40, which was very noisy. Finished up on 80M, noisy but some strong signals. They all sounded weird, sort of hollow and echoey. Multipath perhaps?

Depsite the frustration of QRP, had fun, and thanks dean NW2K for the 80M QSO late in the sprint. 73s until next time.



W9CC Operated by: Larry

I'm getting absent minded. Remembered at the last 20 minutes.



W7GVE Operated by: Ed

Enjoyed it again--- I was hoping that 15 wud be open but condx were below average out here in the southwest.... Sure good to work old friends.. ED-- W7GVE



K8JD Operated by: John

Wkd 4 on 80M, the rest on 40M. Heard nothing on 20 or 160M tonight.
had 3 QSOs with MO but none in my own state of MI ?




NUYN Operated by: Dennis

Band conditions were noisy and weak in NW MO. I could barely hear stations on 20. I was able to work MO Outlaws Stu W0DE and Dick K2HT for the first time, along with Mark KI0I. Good to see the Posse at the Shrine Hambash last week. 73.



WA5BUC Operated by: Fred

Two firsts for me this month. My first Sprint as a "C" and my first Sprint using the Vibroplex Lightning. Thanks to those who endured my attempts to tame this racehorse. I used a Lionel J-36 as a Novice, but don't remember under or over keying as much. Hope to have a better fist next month.

1960 Vibroplex Lightning



K5BZH Operated by: Jim

Did this one using a Heathkit HW-8 belonging to John Lisman, K5WZF, it was built years ago by Neal Lowe, W5PVI. Power was about 1.5 watts on 20 and 2 watts on 40. Was using my ground mounted 14AVQ vertical.

Made 3 of the contacts on 20, 4 on 40. Worked FL, AZ, NY, MO, and NE. I know I had to be weaker than most of you fellows indicated. Thanks for straining your ears.

The HW-8 is definitely not a contest grade radio, even for QRP. It is not QSK, the semi-breakin is a little slow returning from transmit to receive, that hurts. The direct conversion receiver isn't as bad as you might think, but when the band is active, it can be a strain. The frequency calibration is lacking as is the tuning resolution.

Wife has a HW-8 that I need to fix a couple of things (not serious), it has been years since we have used it, it is a fun little radio.

I could just guess that using a HW-7, the earlier Heathkit QRP radio, on a Sprint would be a rather difficult task. I need to put my TT Argonaut V into position for the next SKCC event, it should do an outstanding job.





NW2K Operated by: Dean

Thanks to all. Conditions were a bit unsettled but good activity. Spent most of the time on 40M (34 QSOs, 1 hr) then 20M (18 QSOs, 45 min) and onto 80M (8 QSOs, 15 min). Thank you and see you all next month. 500W, matchbox, inverted V at 50'.



W1LVT Operated by: Len

Good times! But I wonder why the bonus station was kept a secret. Bummer!



KL7GLL Operated by: Gene

Condx not the greatest, but a lot fun anyway.



KB1UOH Operated by: Chas

My first Sprint. It was confusing at first but I started to get the hang of it at the end. I am 78 yrs old and been a ham for about two years. I will try again. Chas

KE5YUM Operated by: Terry

Great sprint tonight! I used my homebrew mini-beam with success working stations (some old and new) from FL to CA. Thanks to all who worked me. See you next month.



WB8ENE Operated by: Art

I only operated about 1/2 hour of the sprint, because I got distracted. Looking forward to the WES when I can spend more time making contacts. It was fun anyway. 73, Art



K2RFP Operated by: Dick

Had XMTR problem during QSO wid K2HT. Not sure Dick got my info so
did not count the QSO. Otherwise okay.
73, Dick.



KA2KGP Operated by: Tom

Pretty good band conditions this SKS, even 20m. was open well into the sprint. Rig: TenTec Argosy II at 50w. into a dipole up 25 ft. with a straight key, of course! 73



VE3FUJ Operated by: Brion

I was a bit off tonight so I only managed 1:20 hr. See you all next month. Brion



KJ4LEN Operated by: Ray

Had a great run on 20 for the first hour. I had to attend to something for most of the second hour but managed to get Dean NW2K near the end. Thanks to everyone who make these sprints possible. I hope to hear some of you this weekend in the FQP. Ray



N5LYJ Operated by: Ken

Lots of fun as usual..QRP 5w to indoor antenna...thanks 73's Ken N5LYJ 6969t



W3NP Operated by: Dave

Started out on 20 and stayed there until the QSO's thinned out and I made my regular contact with Ed W7GVE. Condx on 20 were so-so. Went to 40 where the QRN was a bit high,propagation was long and many sigs had an auroral flutter on them. Condx on 40 here in WV were only fair. Ended up on 80 and while there was a lot of QRN, there were also some big signals - s/n ratio seemed much better. Finally snagged Dean N2WK on this band. All in all, not a bad sprint. Had fun with my 5 watt operation. Antennas were KT-34A on 20 and my CF Zepp @ 45' on 40 and 80. 73 de Dave

Ten Tec Eagle @ 5 watts, Nye Master Key



WX4RM Operated by: Ron

Signals from the West Coast were very strong on 20 meters tonite, so I worked that band for the first half of the sprint. 40 meters had tons of signals, good for getting new multipliers, but my rig (old TenTec Century 22 @5watts into ground mounted 6BTV vertical) had difficulity separating the stations. Dropped down to 80 meters, lot less crowded and found a few more new multipliers. Had a good time!!



W9SAY Operated by: Chas

Thanks again to all the guys and gals who pull this together.



WS9E Operated by: Joe

I did hunt and pounce for about 45 minutes and had to QRT to do chores. I heard a few weak signals on 20 Meters, but none of them could hear me. 40 meters was better. I never had time to check 80 Meters.
This month I used the Orion with the old Speed-x key. See you next time.



W1HFF Operated by: Joe

Not much time for this sprint but managed a few contacts. Bands were very noisy here, especially 40. Thanks everyone.



KQ1P Operated by: John

Conditions less than ideal here for the sprint, S7 QRN and deep QSB. 73.



WB8YXF Operated by: Fr

Thank you all for the QSOs; been a few and hope to be back on the air more.



WA1VIL Operated by: Greg

The noise was deafening but fun anyway! Found out that I am still not ready for prime time with the bug-good thing the ol' reliable flameproof was close at hand! 73 and see you all next time!



N8BB Operated by: Werner

I also forgot the sprint til the last few minutes, tnx to the super station of K0KUW Russ and KI0I/P Mark I got a few at qrpp. I am off my target of working Randy for a long time, used to catch him dead last. Thanks everyone and will do better next time. 73



KKEX Operated by: Rick

A Platte County radio group planning meeting took most of the sprint time, last 20 minutes on 40 & 80 meters with good conditions. Everyone had good signals,
thanks Dean for operating as "Special station" for the event.
73 Rick




NUMP Operated by: Bill

Got off to a slow start and not the best band conditions here. Bands got better and I found me a spot to play and ended up making a few contacts. I always enjoy the sprints. Worked some MO Oulaws; W0DE, WD0ECO, K2HT and KI0I. 73 to all and I'll see you on the next one. N0UMP




KB9DFE Operated by: Steve

Only got on 20m for an hour, but added 6 new numbers. Only need 2 more for 100 different SKCC contacts. I'll get them next month.

Fun to sprint at the hideout,20 was kinda weak here a couple of q`s with the loudest guys I cud find.40 was hoppin so that`s where I settled in for a run and it was a good run.Went to 80m abt the last 30min and got a few more Q`s but the noise was kinda loud there. Great to hear you again Werner(N8BB) hope u r retired now and can radio all u want hihi!Think I heard VE5BCS but the band was up and down and lost the call,sorry.

KA5TJS Operated by: Allen

Just turned the radio on to get some QSO's with the OHR100A I just finished. I did not know it was SKS night but heard the calls so jumped in. Thanks for the guys who heard my 4 watts. I am not a sprint guy but love the WES. I may have to try it again.

Home brew, 2 tube, crystal control, 7w TX. RME6900 RX. Paper log. I'm not sure I miss the good old days! Had fun though.



AK3X Operated by: Peter

Managed to squeeze in a few contacts operating now and then over the course of an hour.
0000 to 0200 is the busiest time of the day around here with other responsibilities. Stuck to 40M which was in good shape. As usual, 3 watts, DSW-40, and inv vee at 27'. See you all next time.
73... Peter



VE7KBN Operated by: Ken

Second try to submit results this month. First try had me
at 33 QSO's- if only it were true!!! Typo? Gremlin?
Anyway now back to my normal QRP numbers. Thanks.



N8ECC Operated by: Alan

Was hoping to use my new antenna (butternut hf9v) but was unable to put it up due to very windy conditions here in ohio this past weekend. So, I used my old faithful dipole up 5' that is laid out if the form of an "L". I always have a qso with Dean, but did not hear him on 40 this time. I did meet some new people and got a little closer to my "T", I think. Tracker says I still only have 55 qso's towards Tribune again. Thanks to NS7B and W1EJ for hearing my weak signal. Hopefully new antenna will help plus I can actually go somewhere besides 40m and poor performance on 20m!!!

Great sprint and looking forward to WES.
