WB7EUX Operated by: Tom

Enjoyed the sprint and thanks to all!



AB3RU Operated by: Jon

Fun sprint.



KCM Operated by: Larry

What a noisy night lots of QRN but many good contacts even work the Missouri Outlaw's club station. Now we have a hideout! 73 all Larry KC0M



N3PDT Operated by: Doug

20m was good until I just ran out of people to work about 0130z. 80m was noisy with few SKCCers to be heard, and 40m was tough, but do-able. Lots of fun as always. My apologies to the stations I couldn't dig out, and there were a number of them. Always nice to Log Ed W7GVE as QSO #1!



WA2JSG Operated by: Curt

Good to see many of the members in Dayton. I really enjoyed myself there.
75w here to an all-band vertical. Kent Straight Key (no time yet to get my Czech Key ready).




WSZV Operated by: Eldon

cought the mo outlaw club first thing then changed over to the club call lots of static tonight used ten tec jupiter, lw antenna and cootie key



NTA Operated by: John

Leisurely evening! Seemed like a lot of people were QRP, or maybe I just wasn't hearing well. One Q on 15m, two on 40m, and 44 on 20m. Thanks for the contacts! K3, doublet & vertical, K2RFP logger, and Begali Camelback key.



K2HT Operated by: Dick

QRN was heavy in NE MO. Congratulations to Slim WA0BGV for getting the MO Outlaws a club station callsign. Mark KI0I gave the club call a great start on getting the Centurion award. Thanks for all the QSO's es CU next sprint.



KBETU Operated by: Phil

Sorry, but got distracted with "Dancing With The Stars". Equipment was
MFJ-9020 with a G5RV. Sure missed the filters of my K-2, but the 9020 makes for
a change. Thanks for another great SKS. 72/73 Phil



NUMP Operated by: Bill

Lots of activity and lots of fun. Thanks again to the crew who make the sprints possible. Worked some of my fellow outlaws and several old friends. 73 all.



K8JD Operated by: John

Storms and QRN made 40 and 80M difficult here but made more QSOs on 20M.



K2DEP Operated by: Steve

Loads of fun with just less than 1 watt. Really got stepped on a bunch. Thanks to KC0M in MO and N9OL in IN for pulling me in. Great ears guys. Looking forward to the next go around. 73



W1EJ Operated by: Ed

Haven't been on for a while. I missed all the fun.



K7CHS Operated by: Rick

A very fast 2 hours, had a good time as usual. I tried 40m at the top of the second hour but got no answers. So back to 20m. Thanks to all I contacted. See you all at the WES.
73
Rick



WABGV Operated by: Slim

Another pleasant few moments. SKS is always too short. Just get going and then it's over. Worked our new club station (Missouri Outlaws ARC) KD0VNL with Mark (KI0I) at the helm. Thanks all for the contacts.




N8KR Operated by: Ken

Having picked up a new (old) Czeck key at Dayton, I decided to go "green" and vintage with the old TS-520S. Nice old rig but doesn't hear as well as the modern gear! Nice to work familiar faces from Dayton . . . Curt, Jim, Karen, Ted. As always, lots of fun!

N8KR "Green" Station



N3EIN Operated by: Matt

Worked 4 bands in a sprint that seemed to favor big signals. In conditions like this evening, the C-21 (or is it me) has trouble with weaker stations in the presence of stronger signals, but that's part of the fun. At 0000Z in PA, 20 meters was reaching the Mid-West and I worked two Outlaws, then I found Dennis-W8BFX in WA on a lonely 15 meters. Gene-K8EE in OH had a good signal in to PA on 40 and 80 meters. Im glad I tried 20 meters again at 0145Z as I found Ed-W1EJ in CA and Ed-W7GVE in AZ to round out a fun sprint. Thanks to all.

K9PMV Operated by: Jerry

First SKS since February for me. Good to be back on. All bands seemed in good shape. 73 to all.



K6III Operated by: Jerry

1 Hour including 2 ragchew (not SKCC member) QSOs.
Logged half-a-dozen new-to-me SKCC ops.



NUS Operated by: Scotty

Thank you to all who pulled me out the mud tonight; great fun... I started on 6m and worked my way down to 80m. 10m was a no go, Kevin AK4ZC thanks for my only contact on 15m. I could hear Bert W5ZR 599+++ on 80m but I couldnt bust the pile up he was running. Again thank you, and my heart and prayers go out to all the families suffering the destruction of the latest storms

KB4QQJ Operated by: Randy

WOW! Hadn't got to play in a SKS in a while. It was busy!! Bands were pretty good in NC. Great to hear my good friend and 4sQRP NCS Wayne as bonus station. Strong into NC Wayne.Picked up several new numbers. For some reason Canada was faint tonight... normally good signals into NC from up there.
Sorry for not being able to pull out the ??JZL station...it just wasn't going to happen tonight.

Is it me or my antenna? Or have the bank conditions been a little rough the last few months?
Still had fun working though the noise. Thanks to those I worked and those that couldn't quite pull me out of the noise. Hope to work many more of you during the next WES.
73, Ron

Really tough at 1 watt tonite !!! QRN was bad on 40 and the band was short. Did manage to work my ol buddy Randy , KB4QQJ near the end. Called CQ a lot and got 3 contacts. Better luck next SKS !!!! Thanks all !!!




KDVNL Operated by: Mo-outlaws-arc

This was the first sprint for the new Missouri Outlaws Amateur Radio Club with the new callsign KD0VNL and new SKCC number #10739. Thanks to all for the contacts and I`m sure u will hear a lot more out of the MOARC club as the members put t5he call on the air.Thanks to the ringleader Slim WA0BGV who has spearheaded the efforts to create this club. The bands seemed good except for some qsb and a little qrn from storms.Sorry to the guys we just plain ran out of time on.There was a rush of calls in the last 5 mins on 40m. A Qso after sprint with Ray WB0PYF to cap off a fun nite. 73 all thanks and CUL Mark/KI0I/KD0VNL



KC9UNL Operated by: Curt

Great Fun. Lots of QRN Tonight. Will look forward to next months spring



KE7YTE Operated by: Tom

20M stayed open the full two hours so I stayed put. Had a good evening of CW QRP fun.



WA1VIL Operated by: Greg

Always fun to sprint! Glad the thunderstorms stopped just in the nick of time. After working the last WES trying to get to 50/50 with CQs I tried mostly calling CQ with my QRP station in this sprint. It seems that I worked about the same number of stations that I would end up with if I was S&P but without the "waiting in line" that often happens when competing against higher power stations answering the same CQ. Still have to ponder if it is more efficient to call CQ. Think I need a larger sample. So thanks to all the good ears who heard me on 40 and 20 and listen for my CQ next time! 73 to all!



NUT Operated by: Andy

Only got to work last 30 minutes but still a lot of fun!



KF7DS Operated by: Don

Not much time to play but had a lot of fun since the bands, especially 20m, were better. Was everyone in MO on the air? The SE and OH/MO area were strong into the Pacific NW. Got quite a few new numbers. Best, Don



KCW Operated by: Charles

Most signals were good tonight despite some weather systems to the south of MO.



K1NV Operated by: Jon

I've been away from on-the-air SKCC activities for a few months. It was good to get back on for the May sprint although conditions weren't the best. My tree-mounted dipole was blowing in the gusty winds and I had to repair the open-wire feedline at the beginning of the sprint.

Twenty meters was pretty good, but I had to swing down to forty for a few minutes to catch a couple of QSO's. I was able to work KD0VNL, K3TM, N3PDT, and W0EJ on both bands, but never heard the bonus station.

I used my old Vibroplex Champion in the straight key mode, but recently acquired some new keys from an estate and will put them in service for future sprints.

KE7FDD and I are planning to move back to Nevada for part of the year, so I hope to reactivate that rare state for SKCC'ers.



N9YDZ Operated by: Mark

Didn't have much time but managed a few contacts. Two from MO. Two from OH. And one from KS.-KC0PMH. I stayed on 40 the entire time. Gud times.



KC4ZA Operated by: Al

Got out my QRP rig and hoisted a wire between two Jackite poles for this SKS. Great fun!



KA2KGP Operated by: Tom

Summer t-storms made 80m. unuseable, 40m. had QRN, but 20m. was good.
Rig: TenTec Argosy II at 50w. into a 5 band dipole up 25 feet, straight key, of course!



KA4BAT Operated by: John

It was another fun sprint, though 10 and 15 meters were dead and 80 meters too noisy. Pretty much stuck with 40 meters here in Ohio. It is a real disadvantage trying to compete with a Technician ticket. You really need 20 meters! But my General test is just 30 days away - Yahoo!!!

Latest addition: Yaesu 7900 R/E - 2 Meter/ 70 Centimeter Dual Bander



N8KZH Operated by: Ron

Fun SKS. Thanks to all. Lots of QRN from storms in the area , but many strong signals on 40. Ran QRP at 5 watts, FT 897d , Nye Viking Master Key. God Bless 72 Ron.

KCPMH Operated by: Wayne

The first time I've been the "Bonus" station was a slightly daunting experience but I had a grand time. I worked all I could hear with special thanks to those who put up with my inexperience in this role.
I will (if permitted) volunteer again further down the road but nect time I'll just enjoy operating the sprint.
Thanks to all es 73 de Wayne - KC0PMH



WU1V Operated by: Rick

Enjoyed this sprint, worked most of the 2 hours. I was on only 20 meters, which was very lively. In fact, I'm happy my 5 watts made it through all the heavy traffic. Didn't hear any DX, and the furthest from my MA QTH was Arizona (Ed W7GVE) and Utah (Rick NS7B). Did work one other QRP station, Roger W4LDA in Georgia.



KE3O Operated by: Bill

Wasted a lot of time experimenting with a rockbound 7 watt tube xmtr (getting ready for the next WES). After experiencing xmtr problems, switched to QRO xmtr for a few contacts. Had fun just the same. 73 es hpe 2 c u next time.



KP4SJ Operated by: Pablo

Very noisy bands. I start working in 40 meters but the conDX disappeared.
I changed to 20 meters and conDX much better, but hearing states station
very low. Europe stations started calling me and most of the QSO's were from there.
This is the first time I couldn't work any of my Outlaws Amigos. Hi...Hi...
Best 73 de Pablo.///




VE2ZA Operated by: Jean

First SKCC Sprint ever: I heard well over 40 CQ SKS stations but sadly managed only 2 QSOs. QRP or QRN? Doesn't matter, had fun. Will try again next time.



W1HFF Operated by: Joe

Thanks everyone for another fun sprint.



AA6AC Operated by: Bob

Tried 10 and 15 meters with few CQ's no joy...QSY to busier 20 meters hunting
was best option...2 hours went by fast...TNX to all...conditions remain poor
at least in my area...QSL's out mail/bureau. TNX AA6AC 6276T.



WEJ Operated by: Bill

Thanks to all for a good Sprint, 20 meters was strong for nearly the first hour then 40 became favorable. With the weather conditions out here I was afraid there would be too much static and lightning especially on 40 meters to work the Sprint but conditions held out. Thanks to all who pulled out my QRP signal and apologies to the AT7?? station I could not copy before the band dropped. This was my first outing with the new "ZN-HK" straight key and oh how sweet it is. Thanks again to all. Bill W0EJ

W3NP Operated by: Dave

Spent about 45 minutes on the air. Condxs on 20 were pretty good. Rig: Ten Tec Eagle @5 watts and my key was the 1915 Vibrolex Bug.



N5NK Operated by: Rondel

Storms in the area--20m sounded like 80m. Special thanks to those who gave me repeats. Love the 2-hour format. Will try to do better next time.



K5UI Operated by: Jim

Had a great time as usual. 20 was the money band for me - I peaked at 15 a couple of times but didn't hear a sole; made a few contacts on 40, but QRN was high. Kicking in the amp definately makes a difference. Pablo, KP4SJ, seemed to have a winning strategy for 20 - he parked well below the pack at around 14042 and had a clear spot all to himself. Already warming up the boatanchors for the next WES. See everyone next month.

Thank you to the ones I was able to have a QSO during this month's sprint.



NV9X Operated by: Jim

Fun Sprint. Started on 20, went to 40, snagged N8KR on 80 and back to 40. Nice to see some of the guys at Hamvention. Thanks to SKCC and K2RFP (who I worked) Sprint Logger.



WD5ABC Operated by: Kerry

Once again I only made a few contacts in between other things (like working late) but it was fun and I'm finally starting to not be ashamed of my bug fist. I'm forcing myself to use the 1941 Vibroplex Original instead of the keyer so I'm getting better at it. It's still hard to go slower than about 15 WPM but I can leave spaces between letters or just use the dash side if I need to.

Thanks for all the guys who put up with my QRP signal!
73,
Kerry, WD5ABC

Good fun. 20 was busy, 40 noisy.
