K7TKT Operated by: Brian

Only had a few minutes on 80m. It was fun adding a couple to the log. Working on home brew sideswiper for the December WES. Hope to have a lot more air time then. 73, Brian



K7JBQ Operated by: Bill

20 just flat died at 0100.



KB1OIQ Operated by: Andy

Jumped into the Nov. SKS late...had fun making the 4 contacts with my "new" Signaling Equipment Ltd. key purchased at a ham radio flea market a couple of months ago. Have a lot of fun and 73 de Andy KB1OIQ.



KBETU Operated by: Phil

Bands were quiet again tonight. Worked all on 40 meters except for K4ZGB on 80 meters. Heard nothing on 20 meters (or higher) and only the one station on 80 meters. Oh well, have the WES coming up shortly - maybe the bands will be better then. 72/73 Phil KBETU



AB8KT Operated by: Ken

Ran the Elecraft KX1 at 5 watts



N8BB Operated by: Werner

Did ok with 1 watt but had a few step on top of us at times. Worked 80 meters as 40 did not get out well with 1 watt, thanks to Randy for finding me with 1 minute to go, almost missed him. Thanks to all.



K2HT Operated by: Dick

Thanks for the QSO's. Bands were not in good shape in NE MO. Used J-38 and Vibroplex Champion which was a gift from W0SZV, Thanks Eldon really like that bug.



NUMP Operated by: Bill

Wow, what happened to the 40 meter band. I was doing fine and then everone was gone. Well it was fun while it lasted. Thanks to all those all those fine ops out there and to everyone who makes these sprints happen.
I'm was working the sprint and taking care of the XYL who had minor surgery today. Now it's back to working on the new Man Cave/Ham Shack...73 all es cul..Bill




K8QA Operated by: Mike

Tuesday night yoga conflicted with the sprint, but I got one contact in the log!



AG6V Operated by: Donna

Wow-heard lots of noise, but very few signals. Oh well, got to practice sending a bit. Always fun.



WDECO Operated by: Mitch

I got a late start but made my usual 20M contact with W7GVE. Made three on 40M and spent the remainder running on 80M. Nice to work Dean, NW2K, on 40 and 80. And worked EIGHT Missouri Outlaws hiding out on 80M including the ring leader Slim, WA0GBV.

Also worked a new old number: KU4GW #652. Thanks Cliff.

Another fun SKS. Thanks to all.

K3 100 watts, Begali Spark, and K2RFP Logger.



WS9E Operated by: Joe

Lots of activity on 80 and 40. I didn't hear a thing on 20. Signals were not the greatest and there was some QSB on 40. I used the Orion at 80W, the Nye Viking Speed-X and a dipole.
Thanks for the contacts. See you next time.



W4CUX Operated by: Bill

Lots of fun. I broke with my recent tradition of working QRP and used the FT950 tonight. Bands were kinda noisy tonight. My best results were on 80M. Most contacts were to the midwest. Also worked Canada and a few in the NE. Looking forward to the next event.
73, Bill - W4CUX



W6FPS Operated by: Ron

20 meters started good but died early.
Had fun anyway. Hope conditions are a little better the next time we meet.
Thanks again to everyone.
73,
Ron



K2DEP Operated by: Steve

Lots of very weak stations tonight. A couple stations just faded out completely. Seems like the further away the better the signal. Stuck to 40 meters. I used my new Kenwood TS-590S which does a great job of filtering out adjacent signals, all the way down to 50Hz. Nice radio but I am hating to part with my Yaesu FT-840, my old battle tank. Put it on eBay yesterday. I was going to try QRP tonight but the bands just ain't right. I may try it in the WES next month for a different approach.



NW2K Operated by: Dean

20 had nice signals from CA, KL7, AZ, and SK. 40 and 80 were also in great shape with CA, ID, and AZ nearly as strong as the east coast. Thanks for the QSOs and see you next time! 90W, fan dipole at 40 feet.



KCM Operated by: Larry

Slim (WA0BGV) was rationing the bullets so I had to go QRP. Sure makes being an Outlaw tough but I will persevere. Thanks to all that copied my QRP Sig.

KLUW Operated by: Russ

Signals were weak and the bands were noisy tonight for the SKS..Not a lot of fun for the ears..I missed a lot of the QRP guys because I could not hear them well enough to copy there calls and info. Maybe it will be better next time.

Ready for the WES with my jukebox bug

W3NP Operated by: Dave

I read a few soapbox comments about 20 and 40 being in good shape. Well, they were horrible here in WV. I worked a few on 20, went to 40 and signals were all very weak. I told my wife that condx were pretty bad and she said "it was the sun", said she heard it on the news. Thankfully 80 was there. At first not too much activity on 80 but it picked up the last hour. I even held a freq for a while with my <5 watt signal.

K8TEZ Operated by: Larry

Well I know from Slim's pictures of Missouri outlaws that i worked 6 of them (Doug,Larry,Mitch,Bill,Dennis & Mark) and I thank you for the calls. It was also great to work W8TQE (Adrian Amateur Radio Club) xyl is a grad of Adrian college & we were at a few of their field days years ago (tnx Ted K8AQM). I called a cq on 40 & set off a bomb & that kept me busy for abt 45 minutes & then QSY'd to 80. Worked several repeats there & I think sigs were a little better on 80. Ray wb0pyf/qrp tnx for call on both bands...great QRP sig & thanks to everyone who puts this 2 hour weekday sprint together..73's Hope everyone has a nice holiday season...



W7GVE Operated by: Ed

Strange band condx for this one.. 20 folded at 0100z then 40 was really long the last 30 mins---- At the end worked V31JP he was 599 plus a bunch--- This was a different SKS, but fun as always... 73/ED/W7GVE



AB4KJ Operated by: Mike

First SKCC sprint. Really enjoyed look forward to participating in more.



NP3CW Operated by: Julio

Very poor propagation.
Able to work OH,VA and MD as states.
Only PS7HD Nathan as DX from SA.
Worked Pablo KP4SJ in 6 bands but he is about 10 kms from me.
Hope others had better propagation.
Good luck next time.
Julio



KB4QQJ Operated by: Randy

That was fun. I got to play in most of the sprint this time. I started on 20 meters and had no luck at all. Not a single contact. Moved to 40 meters and it seemed Missouri owned the band. I think I worked more MO stations than all the others combined!! Had a couple nice surprises. Pablo, KP4SJ was strong in NC. I hope you sign up for K3Y/KP4 Pablo!!
Then I had a nice 2xQRP contact with Nat, PS7HD in Brazil!! Thanks for the 2xQRP Nat! I found several new numbers and a few old friends. Good to here you Cliff. I hadnt heard from you in a while. And just when I thought I would finish with my normal N8BB as last contact, I squeaked in one more with Mark, KI0I. Thanks to all the fine ops out there.

KB1UOH Operated by: Charlie

40M was tough for QRP tonight. On the bright side I did work AA5VE In the closing minutes.



AA5VE Operated by: Carl

Thanks to all that participated. I had a great time.
73's

N5JPX Operated by: Jim

Started on 20m and immediately got Ed, W7GVE but the band went away quickly and things got very quiet. 40 and 80 were doing fine into Mississippi for the first hour and then the QSB set in on 40. Thank you Larry, K8TEZ for contacts on 40 and 80. Great to meet Tim, WS8K who appears to be the latest member! Great signal Tim. 6 new numbers in my quest for "C" .. 86 down .. 14 to go! I thought I had the time wrong or had missed a holiday for the last 40 minutes as the bands got pretty quiet here. Lots of fun .. CU in the WES.

Icom 7410 to an 80 meter loop Vibroplex straight key tonight.

73, Jim



N3PDT Operated by: Doug

Not the greatest conditions here, but always fun. Stayed mostly on 80m, but made one VE contact on 20m and a couple on 40m. Only 3 fellow Missouri Outlaws we bagged. Thanks Mark, Mitch and Slim. Thought I'd be able to round up a bunch on 160m, but had 20+ noise there. Thanks to all!



WX4RM Operated by: Ron

Had a good time as always. My first contact was with WA4AN, located 12 miles away---Howdy neighbor! Thanks to all who copied my peanut whistle signal, glad you all have good ears.



VE3FUJ Operated by: Brion

I started an hr late, have forgotten about being back on EST time. Anyway condx were terrible here very high noise level, and next to no sigs on 40. Tnx to the contacts I did make. Brion 4936T.



KF7DS Operated by: Don

Only had 30 minutes of air time, but worked several new numbers. 20m was dead on this end and 40m seemed really wobbly with lots of deep QSB. Fun all the same.

Best,Don KF7DS



VE7KBN Operated by: Ken

Worked only 20m as usual. Band shut down after 30 mins or so. One
more state for my personal QRP WAS with HB1B challenge. Thnx to Jim/KA0CSW
for MN. And usual thanks to those who work to put the SKS events on.



AB7DG Operated by: Tony

Once again I had a great time participating in the SKS. I made three more QSOs than I made on my first SKS last month, so I am happy!! I am looking forward to the next sprint...73 de Tony!



ND9M Operated by: Jim

Fun SKS as always. I'd just put up a new dipole for 20M a couple hours before the contest, had a great SWR after only a couple cuts, and heard plenty of sigs. Then when the gong rang, there were no sigs at all, which was strange timing. But at least 40 and 80 were in decent shape for the two hours.



AK3X Operated by: Peter

In spite of all the reminders, I forgot about the SKS until about 0115. 40M was not very good, but managed to work 2 stations. Heard V31JP working ND9M, but Joe was weak and also doing the S&P thing. Anyway, had a good time trying. Hope to see you all next month.
Rig was the usual DSW-40 at 3 watts to a 40M inverted Vee at maybe 27'. 72/73 Peter



K1NV Operated by: Jon

I started out on 20M but moved to 40M at 0040Z when the band went silent. Propagation was good in most directions although I missed some of the guys I usually hear. K8TQE wasn't heard on either band. I would have tried 80M but things were still going strong on 40M when the Sprint ended.

Several 9000-series numbers were worked including AA9K (9952), W9AX (9733), AND ws8k (9953). Also present were KC0M (8177), AB4KJ (8904), and W9JX (8822). Good luck working toward the Centurion and Tribune awards!

My FT-450AT was just returned from the repair depot and held up well for the Sprint (thank goodness).



KB1NHV Operated by: Art

Only bank I could work was 40 and it was quite noisy. Fun just the same.



W9SAY Operated by: Chas

Bummer. Had equipment failure when I called K1NV. Sorry Jon. That was it for me. Great fun in the spirit anyhow.



VE5BCS Operated by: Harold

the test was fb. I worked 20,40,and 80 tonite. tnx all. 50w loop ant



ADAB Operated by: Jim

Wow, two hours sure goes by quickly! Thanks to everyone who sent slow, easy to copy code.



K5BZH Operated by: Jim

Band was noisy at my QTH, noise level was S5 to S7.



WA6OEF Operated by: Preston

Going QRP this time really made it a challenge... but had a lot of fun never-the-less!



W1EJ Operated by: Ed

With 15 minutes to go I finally got time to get on the air, only to discover the bands were dead. I did manage one contact then called it a night.



N3ADF Operated by: Jim

With 20m dead, I did the "hunt & pounce" on 40m for one hour and then 80m for one hour. Very enjoyable.



WABGV Operated by: Slim

Weak effort on my part. Looked for activity on 160 several times but nothing heard.



KKEX Operated by: Rick

The comments indicate band conditions were not so good, I agree that 20M was flat but 40M was good in Missouri. 30 minutes into the SKS I received a call that took me away from the fun. The four contacts made included W8TQE the AARC, a new one for the log from the Michigan crew. Thanks to W7GVE, K1NV, & K8EE for the other contacts.
A reminder for all SKCC members: Friday evening we will be operating from the
National Weather Service Kansas City (KC0NWS) during the "SKYWARN" Appreciation event.
More info at http://www.wrh.noaa.gov/mtr/hamradio We will post to O'Briens page..73 Rick

WB8YXF Operated by: Fr richard

Thanks to the 10 I got to contact..... only one on 20M, KP3CW, other wise heard nothing. 40 and 80 seemed to be were everyone was which created a lot of QRM etc... though still had lot of fun for the short time I was on: as I started late but did get on. 73 and God Bless all.



VE7LAJ Operated by: Andy

Had fun as usual. Tnx to all the great ops who worked me in spite of the heavy QRN and deep QSB. As always, tnx to the organizers who make these events possible.



KQ1P Operated by: John

Made it to SKS late, but for the first time since cross-country season ended. No coaching or meets to compete with ham radio until spring track starts up. 73 John



W1HFF Operated by: Joe

Not much activity here. 20 was too quiet and 40 was too noisy. Thanks everyone.



KE3O Operated by: Bill

80 and 40 meters seemed to be open tonight ..... but nothing at was happening on 20 and 10. Maybe propagation will be improved next month. Tnx for the contacts. 73's, Bill



WS8K Operated by: Tim

This was my 1st SKCC contest: It was a blast!



K4UFT Operated by: Ted

Bummer ... got sidetracked and only got in the last few minutes with one QSO.

Worked Randy, WB4QQJ, in Burlington, NC on 80 Meters. About 180 air miles from Greenville, SC ... not bad on 80 at night with 10 Watts. My end fed wire would load up okay on 80, but it went unstable over 10 watts so left the power there.

Got to looking at my logbook and my only activity for the past 4 months has been either SKS or WES ... they're always so enjoyable. Gonna be out of work after December 31st so I'll be able to get in some more activity during the day.

FT-950 @10 Watts to end-fed 25' wire. J-38 Key



WA1VIL Operated by: Greg

Very late to the party-started on the FT817 and the attic trap dipole-didn't hear anything on 20 or 40....went down to the shack....still nothing on 40. Finally a few contacts on 80...so thanks NW2K, K8EE and K8TEZ! AF2Z-we broke our string of last QSO in a sprint...I was waiting in line when the clock ran out. 73/72 all and looking forward to the next WES!



KA5TJS Operated by: Allen

40 meters was very quiet and I did not have much time. Thanks for the guys who could hear me. I new when W7GEV could not hear me in AZ it was going to be slow. 73's to all and see you next month.

73's Allen
