K2HT Operated by: Dick

Thanks for the QSO's, lot of QRN es weak signals due to propagation. Sri about 4 weak stations I could not pull out of the mud. C U next month. 73



KF7DS Operated by: Don

Not much time to play but the bands seemed to be in good shape. Back East and PR were open on 15m and 20m, and then faded. Lotsa fun but I was fighting scratchy dits on the Bug.

KC2EGL Operated by: Mike

W4CUX Operated by: Bill

Great fun. I went back to QRP. 40 meters was kinda quiet in the beginning, but picked up as the sun went down across the country. Contacts with several non-members tonight. Looking forward to next time.
73, Bill - W4CUX



KKI Operated by: Jack

Another nice sprint. Hung around the old novice portion on 40 mtrs and then the last half hour headed down to 80 mtrs to finish off the event. Many thanks for some of the old pals on tonight W9DLN...Dan...N2JNZ...George, K2RFP...Dick and Randy...KB4QQJ. Thanks for all the contacts fellas. See you all next trip.
73, jack

WA5AFD Operated by: Gerald

Very nice sprint. Good to hear many of the regulars and got to work some new numbers. Thanks to all. 73 and hope to work all again soon.



WB9G Operated by: Chris

My first SKS. A great time. Thanks for the QSOs and 73. de Chris WB9G



NTA Operated by: John

Nice evening. Worked a lot more Canadians than I have in the past. Had most of my Q's on 20m, with five on 15m. Ran my amp this time, so running was a little easier! K3, KPA500, vertical, Begali Camelback, K2RFP logger.



WDECO Operated by: Mitch

Nice Sprint with lots of activity tonight. Band conditions were good. 15M was open but only worked NG7Z, Paul, who had a big signal.

I didn't realize K8XXX was a bonus but worked him back-to-back contacts on 80 and 40.

Nice to work TI2CLX, Luis, for the first time. Thought I was going to miss W7GVE but got him right at the last on 20M.

Worked fellow Missouri outlaws Slim WA0BGV on two bands, KI0I Mark, and Dick K2HT on 80M.

73, Mitch

N8ECC Operated by: Alan

I had forgotten about the sprint, just happened to turn on radio at 00:37 and heard the sigs. Another great sprint, the first 30 minutes were great until my new vibroplex started acting funny and had to switch to old faithful, Les Logan Speed-X Model 501. See you next sprint!!!



KLUW Operated by: Russ

The bands were in super condition tonight. I hope everyone made lots of contacts..

K7VM Operated by: Craig

Given enough Sprints, I may get the hang of my bug yet. Great fun!



NUMP Operated by: Bill

Lots of fun on this one. Good to see so many ops pounding on the ol brass. I made most of my contacts on 40 but went to 20 and 80 for a few. I tried 160 but no one heard me. Caught up with XXX twice. Seems like I've seen XXX on some old jugs around here somewhere...73 all and cul...Bill

Fun Sprint. Bands were good all evening. I keep a run going on 20 so was hesitant to leave, moved to 40 and had another run going. Went to 80 and it was slow so returned to 40 to finish the event. Strongest signal tonight was Russ and 40 over. Old friend Dennis, WD9DWE was close at 30+. Sounded like Ed, W7GVE had an endless string going!! Always a good contact. Thanks to everyone.

Rig= KX3 at 5w
Ant= PAR EF-20/40 and PAR EF-80 at 33 feet.
Key= Marconi AS300A for the entire sprint.

73 for now,
Randy_KB4QQJ



K6CSL Operated by: Bert

Wow! 20m was hot this evening. I wish I would have started there. I started on 10m,no activity there(I had just worked P29VCX there). I tried 15m and called several times and got no replies so I moved to 20m. The first station I worked was NP3CW and things went on from there. TNX to NP3CW, K0TC, WA8SZT, KF7DS, AE5VB, W4HAY, VE5DC, N0TA and K8XXX for the QSO's. Good night, from the beautiful San Joaquin Valley. Bert, K6CSL

N5JPX Operated by: Jim

The bands cooperated and I got K8XXX at 0003Z on 40 meters and then again on 80 meters. Worked 20, 40 and 80 meters and had a great time. I got several new numbers in my quest for "C". The Hi-Mound BK-100 was still hooked up to the radio from the WES so I guess I "bugged" all those who had the patience to work me. Thanks! A special thanks to Bob, WL7WH in Alaska for hanging in there and making the QSO. I hope to see all for the next WES.

Icom 7410 to a 80 meter loop up 45 feet.

73, Jim



KBETU Operated by: Phil

Got distracted the last half hour with a very nice QSO with KE4GPU - only been on the air for 6 weeks - great fist! Anyway, another fun filled event - QRM wasn't as bad as I expected. Heard lots of stations - just wish I could have worked more of them, but the QSO was really nice. Oh well, fun is what it is all about anyway. Hope to work more of you in next month's WES. 72/73, Phil - KBETU



W7GVE Operated by: Ed

20 Meters was open for the entire time which make this an active sprint for me. A nice surprise working TI2CLX--Strangely I did not work TX ---The Outlaws were at the top of their game! CU next month 73 to all ED/W7GVE



W6FPS Operated by: Ron

Had a great time, as usual.

I only found K8XXX on 20 meters.
Many thanks to everyone who helps putting together the SKCC events.
73,

N3PDT Operated by: Doug

After hearing the wide open upper bands all day here, I figured it would be great for SKS. Bands were not bad, but propagation really seemed to be localized. Despite that, it was another fun SKS. Worked a number of 9100+ stations, and a good number of old friends. Only ran across one fellow Missouri Outlaw, W0SZV, Eldon. Thank you sir. Your cootie sounded great. Thanks to all, and my apologies to the stations I couldn't pull out.

N3EIN Operated by: Matt

The clock struck 0000Z here in PA and Paul NG7Z was right there on 15 meters, followed by John N0TA. I checked 20 meters and Wow, lots of strong signals! The G5RV-Lite was true to its orientation as I worked Pablo and Julio in PR off one side and Bob WL7WH in AK on the other. I stayed on 20 meters, although I did check back on 15 meters at 0100Z and had a nice chat with Charles N6DIQ in CA and then called CQ, but to no avail. Back to 20 meters and worked among others, three MO outlaws Slim, Mark and Doug, Hugh down in LA, and I always find Ed W7GVE by his distinctive Dit Dit. That was a fun evening!

Strange propagation tonite, in a good way! 20 meters gave fantastic DX, worked AK,SK,CA,WA,OK,NE and PR. Thanks to all who pulled my signal out of the mud!



NG7Z Operated by: Paul

Just had time for the first hour. Mama rang the supper bell and had to go. I started out cqing on 10M but no answers and very little activity on 15M. Too bad because both bands were open. 20M was very crowded. See you in the WES later on. Thanks for the Q's. 73 Paul NG7Z



NP3CW Operated by: Julio

All contacts were in 20 mtrs.
Rest of bands were dead.
Good luck to all. Unable to work the bonus station.

VE7KBN Operated by: Ken

Great sprint. Worked QRP using HB1B going towards WAS with it.
Three more states this sprint--
Thanks to Roger /K3TM for MD, Randy /KB4QQJ for NC and Hugh/AE3VB for
LA.

Stayed on 20-- condx were good. Many stations heard but as usual with
QRP, not so many heard me! Even managed to work the bonus station
which is a rarity for me.

Great way to pass a couple of hours on a rainy evening.
Thanks again to those who put it on. See you next time.

Great conditions on 40M this evening. Was able to work just about everyone I called using QRP. Tnx to W4CUX in GA and KB4QQJ in NC for 2XQRP contacts. Both stations were very loud here in Ohio tonight. Tnx to K8XXX for two bands this evening. Really loud on 80M! Rig used was my K3/10 at 5 watts to the random wire. Key used was my Bencher RJ-2. Thanks again to all for another fun SKS.

KB1UOH Operated by: Charlie

Tnx for the contacts. I think I gave K8XXX The wrong SKCC NR.Getting old I guess. The sprint was fun.

W3NP Operated by: Dave

I thought band conditions were very good - at least much better than they have been. I stayed on 20 for the first hour and when signal strengths started dropping, I went to 40. Stayed on 40 until the last 15 minutes or so and finished up on 80. Caught K8XXX on 40 and 80. I switched between my 1915 Vibroplex bug (love that old bug) - this is one case where older is better, and the German Junker straight key.

Ten Tec Eagle @ 4.8 watts into 130' long CF Zepp up @ 45' for 80 and 40 and KLM tribander @ 50' on 20.

K1NV Operated by: Jon

It was good to get back to the Weekday Sprint again. I spent most of the Sprint tuning and looking for QSO's on 20M. I finished the Sprint on 40M and added four more QSO's before it ended.

Most QSO's were with stations in the west and except for MA, MD, NC, MI, MS and QC, not much was heard or worked east of the Mississippi. KP4SJ was active on 20M and I was pleased to add K8XXX to the log for bonus points.

The usual FT-450 (100W) and ZS6BKW dipole were in operation again but I'm going to try QRP for one of the upcoming sprints.



WB8YXF Operated by: Fr

Thanks to all for the QSOs. Enjoyed the 2 hours. Never heard anything on 10M, only a couple on 15M, though 20M, 40M, and a 80M sounded good. 73



NUYN Operated by: Dennis

Good conditions in NW Missouri. Ed W7GVE was my first contact. Russ K0LUW on 40 had the strongest signal I heard during the sprint. Thanks for bonus points from K8XXX. 73.

WA1VIL Operated by: Greg

Shouldn't have wasted the first hour trying to use the FT817 into the slinky dipole in the attic-had to hook up the G5RV to get out! Thanks to K7VM for restoring my faith in QRP! Needless to say that the attic antenna will be swapped out for something new! Fun as always! 73/72
