Another fun Sprint! I had a great time once more and looking forward to the next sprint! 73 de Tony



KMC Operated by: Mike

Only worked the last hour at 5w. Had fun on qrp and good sig. into Colorado



K2HT Operated by: Dick

Enjoyable sprint as always, thanks for QSO's. Winter storm in Missouri kept noise level high. Did not hear Mark KI0I guess he was plowing snow on roads so all the outlaws could get to work tomorrow. Glad to see numbers over 10K in sprint. 73



KCM Operated by: Larry

Good condx tonight. I didn't hear many of my fellow outlaws...they must have been stuck in a snow drift. The sprint was great fun thanks to all.

Boy, 80m was in great shape and the band went long early. Good to hear all the sks stations, SKCC QRP rocks with xtals. Ray



K7CHS Operated by: Rick

Thanks to all stations I contacted, 20m was good here until the last 20 minutes. 73 to all and to all a good night!

KDEKT Operated by: Jason

Another great sprint!



NTA Operated by: John

Super conditions. Spent the first hour on 20m, and the second on 40m. 40m had much more noise and QRM (foreign SSB station), but still able to pull our some of the weaker stations. First time I've worked 3 Canadian Providences in an SKS. Thanks for the Q's. K3, vertical & doublet, K2RFP Sprint Logger.



KB1NHV Operated by: Art

Almost forgot about the SKS tonight! 20 and 40 were really busy. Was thrilled to work K8XXX on 40.



KF7DS Operated by: Don

Fun late afternoon and the bands held up pretty well. See you in WES.

Don KF7DS



N3PDT Operated by: Doug

Got started exactly one hour late tonight. Don't know what I was thinking. Had some good luck on 20m working the western states, then went straight to 80m. Was having a good night, too bad I missed an hour of it! Thanks to all.



WS9E Operated by: Joe

Pretty busy, tonight. I am retiring in two days after 44 years on the job. So much to do, so little time...
40 sounded good up here. Not much QRN from the big storm. Tonight I ran the Orion at 90 Watts to the stealth dipole. Used my rectangular Speed-X. See you next time.



W7GVE Operated by: Ed

N5JPX Operated by: Jim

Too many things requiring my attention so I only got to participate for a few minutes at a time but I did get to participate! Fun as always.

Icom 7410 with my 1947 Vibroplex bug into an 80 meter loop up 45 feet.

CU for the WES.



WA5AFD Operated by: Gerald

Good to be back on the air after some months absence. 20 meters stayed open here for the entire 2 hours but got in on some 40 meter work until the noise level got high. Now located in Mustang OK (Canadian county) after move from Garvin county OK in December. Heard great singals from both coasts and across the country plus VE5SG Garry in Canada. Kenwood TS 850 at 90 watts to a hy gain av640 vertical and straight key. 73's to all.



K2DEP Operated by: Steve

Been very sick since Saturday but felt like I needed to get up and play some, fever or not. Interesting sprint with propagation very strange, tuner was going ballistic on 40M and did not hear some of my regular contacts but had a great time meeting new friends. Thanks to GM3ZDH for the nice DX. Had loads of fun. Hope to see all again and thanks for the QSOs.



KB7GL Operated by: Vic

First SKS in almost a year, and the first QSOs with my new KX3. Working with 5 watts is much less certain than I've experienced in previous outings! Not much of a score, but still fun to let the KX3 stretch its legs into a ZS6BKW antenna. Still learning this QRP game.

First KX3 QSOs



KA1KU Operated by: Don

W5WIL Operated by: Dennis

First sprint for me. Lot of fun. Worked a few on 20-40-80 and 1 (K9WWT) on 160. Simple 240' Doublet at 40' with my older IC-740 down at 5W and a J-38 key. Look forward to trying this from our camper maybe next time.



WA1VIL Operated by: Greg

Fun as always. 20 meters was really good the first hour, 80 and 40 marginal the second hour. 73 all and thanks for the contacts!



W1EJ Operated by: Ed

OOOPS got it wrong the first time accidentallly put an H in my call. So excited about the new TR7.



K5TRI Operated by: Mike

Fun way to spend the afternoon instead of working :). First tried to do some S&P but that never works well for me and my lack of patience so I started to call CQ and ended up with 23 QSOs total and multiple times with a pile-up. Good times. I found K8XXX earlier on 20m but he was busy so I thought I'd come back later. That was not necessary as they called me. Thanks again for that, and the extra points. Sorry for some of the stations that kept calling but I couldn't work. Even with all stops removed and trying to fish something out the noise it sometimes didn't work out. I stayed on 20m for the most part which was not too bad, 40m worked also well and then it was over but more stations kept calling. Good times. Thanks for all the contacts and looking forward to the next one.

Rig: TS-590 Ant: homebrew OCF Dipole @ 30ft. Key: J-38

N3EIN Operated by: Matt

Gusting easterly winds in PA had the G5RV doing some lively excursions, but it did its job on 20 meters out to the West Coast and picked up strong signals on 80 meters for the East Coast (plus the Special Station in MI). Fun! Extra GL to those getting snow. 73, Matt.

KLUW Operated by: Russ

Had a high noise level on 40m tonite, the only band I worked. Missed a lot of the weak stations. Had a pretty good time. Worked a new C for me, VA3NQ.




K8TEZ Operated by: Larry

Wow...40 meters was in great shape here tonight....great sigs from west coast & also east coast but no MI (k8XXX)? I set up shop on 7.054 called a couple CQ's & settled in for the night. Also worked 4 Missouri outlaws (Larry-Mitch-Eldon-Bill)all very strong into OH. Wonder where Slim was tonight ? Thanks to everyone who helps put this sprint on every month & thanks everyone who called me I think I got you all...




W6FPS Operated by: Ron

Had a good time as usual.
Last weekend I picked up a new toy a the TRW swap meet.
I found a Vibroplex Lighting Bug, serial number 252514.
When I slow down the "Dits" a bit I'll give it try on SKS or WES.
Photo to follow next time.
73, Ron



VE1PVH Operated by: Paul

Only 1 contact. Just finished this 18" mag loop for 30,20,17 meters for portable ops with RT 320. Was able to make QSO with Tony K6ELQ in CA from my basement at 10 watts! He was 559 for my 449. Should work well I hope.
Cheers all.

N1DN Operated by: Phil

Thanks for contacts. Logged several members for the first time. Added 4 Q's to my PFX award. 73 phil



VE3FUJ Operated by: Brion

Enjoyable sprint, working in the < 1W category for a change. I think I did reasonably well, there were a fair amount of noise at time, but thought occupancy was rather on the short side. There were a couple of stations that just could not hear me. Such is the lot of low power. Brion



K5ZOL Operated by: Bob

Really enjoyed this one. Worked a number folks I hadn;t worked before.




KACSW Operated by: Jim

Nice to work a SKS again, after missing quite a few of them. 20 meters was very good for me. Worked only an hour of it, but it was a fun hour.
Nice to work Jay, WB5UDA, my first SKCC nr over #10,000.

73
Jim



K6III Operated by: Jerry

20m only. 1 Hour only.
All but 1 QSO made Running.



K1NV Operated by: Jon

The February Sprint seemed like a lot of work with several idle periods during the two hour session. Nothing was heard on 10M and 15M, so I started (a little late) on the 20M band where there was a lot of activity. Only a couple of stations were heard and worked on the east coast: K3RHJ (NC)and KA2KGP (NY). VE7DBN, VE5BC, VE5SG, AL7JK, and WL7WH provided a touch of DX there. K8XXX came through on 20M for my bonus station points.

Moving to 40M, I found pretty good activity, but many calls went unanswered possibly due to a noisy band at the other end. N0TA, K8EE, WA5AFD, and W1EJ were worked on both bands.



AA6AC Operated by: Bob

AA6AC herd nothing on 15 and 17 meters for SKCC sprint. Hunted on 20 meters because two stations in my area known to be working band. AA6AC and K6ELQ are
in same city (Oxnard, CA) several miles apart. The two hours went fast.



KD2JC Operated by: Joe

Nice evening. Conditions good. Many stations. Thanks to all that worked me. 73



VE5BCS Operated by: Harold

The band was good some strong sig couldn't here me all contacts on 20m loop ant at 50 watts

I worked the Sprint QRP with great signals on 40 meters for the hour that I participated. MFJ 9040, straight key, inverted V at 30 feet. All the best, Terry



KA2KGP Operated by: Tom

Another nice SKCC sprint. 80, 40 & 20 meters were all in good shape here in WNY. Rig: TenTec Argosy II ar 50w. into dipole up 25 ft. w/ straight key.




WY5R Operated by: Kd

Another fun sprint. Got closer to my T. Thanks and 73 to all.



K6ELQ Operated by: Tony

This was my first sprint in my 59 years of ham radio. QSO's were easy, logging not so much (two fingers + mouse). Lost a few entries due to clumsiness. Had a lot of fun and gained some experience. Only used one band this time, 20m. Looking forward to next SKS.



KE4YH Operated by: Stew

Loads of fun using my DX60B and R4B combo. Tonights bug is a 1952 Vibroplex Champion with Navy markings. Extender Dot slows it way down. SK Sprinter wouldn't let me log calls that were worked on another band? 40 was good and 80 was great.



N8XE Operated by: Jason

First time using the new K2. Was using my 1930s era Bug.



WK2S Operated by: Art

Not much time to operate, but still had fun.



WB8ENE Operated by: Art

Nice sprint. I moved from 20 to 40 to 80, and back to 20 again. K8XXX was extremely strong on 80. Glad to work my first SKCC member with a number over 10,000. Thanks to all for the contacts. See you in the next sprint. 73, Art



KA1XC Operated by: John

80M was in great shape so I stuck with it all night. Used a J38 w/Navy knob, and Icom 756P3 100W to dipole up 60 ft. Lotsa fun, thanks & 73!

NE6DL Operated by: Dave

first SKS for a long time, fun as usual. 20M good 'til late and then 40M. Did snag K8XXX big sig in TX



WU1V Operated by: Rick

QRP was a challenge as usual, made 8 contacts, only the Southern US (3 Missouri Outlaws) and one MA on 80 meters (my first 80M Q in a SKCC sprint). Not the best night for propagation where I live and with my limited antenna setup, but I had a good time anyway. 72/73, Rick



K8XXX Operated by: Emcc

Great fun operating multi-multi with good friends! The bands were "hot" for us and stayed open the entire sprint. Thanks to all who worked us and to gain our "T" for the club.
73,

KJ4LEN Operated by: Ray

Had a great time. Finally got my SB301 and SB401 working as a transceiver so I used them at 75W. Did well on 40 and 80. 80 got real noisy toward the end. Key was my Radio Shack straight key. Thanks to KA4BAT John (skcc#10395)for the new number. I'll see everyone next time. Ray

SB301 and SB401



NUMP Operated by: Bill

Another great sprint. Good to see those over 10k numbers.
Still digging out from the snow storms here. That's ok though cause we need the moisture. Had to put snow shoes on the outlaw horses.
See everyone in the WES in March...73...Bill




KA5TJS Operated by: Allen

Well I got 4 on 20 mtrs and 4 on 40 mtrs. This signals were good and QRN not to bad. The SKCC has the best bunch of ops I have had the pleasure to work. Thanks for the contacts and see you next month.

73's Allen



KK4BOB Operated by: John

Could only work the last 20 minutes of the sprint but managed to snag a couple of T's. Only 46 more to go Hi.

K5UI Operated by: Jim

Great time as usual. Twenty meters held in until last 30 minutes of the contest and then went completely dead except K6ELQ's still-strong signal.

Nice to see so many high SKCC numbers for those of us chasing the prefix award.

First contest with my new Yaesu FT-1000MP Field plus Czech military Coffin Key.



ND9M Operated by: Jim

Fun contest again. Condx on 20 was decent for the first hour, and 40 brought it home.
