Still getting the hang of this.



K2HT Operated by: Dick

QRN bad in MO, 20 was best band but did make a few contacts on 80. I missed several contacts due to propagation. Thanks for QSO's looking forward to next sprint.



KII Operated by: Mark

Great bands on 20 and 40m. Went to 80 m last 20 min and found some outlaws like N0UMP,NW0M and WA0BGV giving K0SKC also. That 2hrs goes fast and I always seem to run out of time. Great to hear everyone ,C U next time.73 Mark KI0I



NTA Operated by: John

Very interesting! I ran a KD1JV Mountain Topper transceiver - about LWD = 4"x2"x1". It doesn't have a single knob - all switches. Mostly CQ'ed on 20m, but came up on 40m at the end. I think the thing I missed the most is more control of the receiver. Thanks for the Q's - everybody that worked me did a lot of work! Mountain Topper @ 5w, BLT Tuner, Doublet.

This is a blast! 73s de NO8C



WD5ABC Operated by: Kerry

I never got away from 20m tonight, I ended up having a ragchew with 2 different SKCC members who weren't participating in the sprint. Hey, it's all good, I worked a little over an hour's worth of CW even if I wasn't making points the whole time. Here's a screen shot of 20m during the sprint, we took over a good chunk of the band tonight. Hand-sent CW rules!

73,
Kerry, WD5ABC





WA1VIL Operated by: Greg

Always fun to sprint! Most of my contacts on 20 during the first hour, slower on 40 during the second hour but good to hear life on 80 meters toward the end. Thanks to all who dug out my 5 watt signal! 73 and see you next time!



W5WIL Operated by: Dennis

900mw to 6' vertical in backyard with battery power and J38. Several contacts on 20m, moved to 40m but conditions were so good that I couldn't get through the 'pileups'. As always folks very courteous. Love these sprints for trying out new qrp and portable gear ideas. I think QRPp is more successful on the weekend sprintathon when things are a little slower, but always have fun



N5LUL Operated by: Brad

Been absent for too long. Good to get back in the game!




K7IFG Operated by: Ken

Stayed on 15m for the first hour. Worked VK7CW and NP3CW and a few statesiders.
On 20m worked PS7HD who had a big signal.
On 40m Phil, K3EW, pulled me out of mud. Nice to you Phil.

K8TEZ Operated by: Larry

Werner, N8BB wow that 1 watt qrp sig was doing a great job tonight..must have a fantastic antenna up there....also George n2gsj & Ray wb0pyf very nice qrp sigs here tonight. Lot's of QRN here tonight...think some storms brewing out over the lake again tonight. 40 was in pretty good shape here & we were able to work Pablo kp4sj who was banging thru. Thanks to all who put the two hour sprints together...thanks to all the Mo outlaws who worked us & nice to hear the ringleader Slim ...73's till next month...

N3PDT Operated by: Doug

First time out for my new-to-me K2/100. Mostly S&P until the last 20 minute when I stayed on 80m for a bit to see if I could round up some fellow Missouri Outlaws. Four of them found me. Thanks to K2HT Dick, N0UMP Bill, WA0BGV Slim, and NW0M Mitch. Enjoyed my more relaxed approach this time. Thanks to all!

W9SAY Operated by: Chas

Just a quick touch-and-go-for me this evening. Vy bad condx here.



NA4O Operated by: Mark

Great conditions here. Another fun sprint.



W1EJ Operated by: Ed

Sitting on my sister-in-law's patio, long wire up in a tree, 2 watts out from my KX-1 through my new ZM-2 Z-match tuner. Pouring rain but enough cover to keep the gear dry. Got three contacts and then; lightning started. Oh well; yank the wires loose and escape inside. Fun while it lasted,



N3EIN Operated by: Matt

The bands were strong and predictable this evening in PA. After working Nat-PS7HD on 20 meters, I listened on 15 meters at 0040Z and worked the one call I heard Bob-AA6AC. By the time we finished there were a number of good signals coming up. At 0120Z I tried 80 meters where Rick-K0KEX managed my 339 signals, but I had better results with fellow PA op Scott-KA3QLF who thanked me for the rare DX. I finished up back on 20 meters at 0155Z to work Gordon-N6WK, who always has a good signal, to finish a great evening. Thanks to all.

NC5G Operated by: George

Very little QRN tonight and sigs were strong. Had fun as usual.



VE7KBN Operated by: Ken

As usual used my HB1B looking for new states. None tonight.
Got off to a fast start but did not do well as the SKS went on.
Limited to 20M . Thanks for the sprints - see you next time.



N5JPX Operated by: Jim

I had fun and the bands seemed to cooperate as well. Just got the Navy Flameproof key and this was its maiden voyage from this shack. Thanks for the contacts and, as always, thanks to the folks that organize and run these events. Always fun to listen to guys and gals having fun with CW!

N4RAY Operated by: Rodney

had to resubmit,got in wrong category,was lots of fun



KE7YTE Operated by: Tom

I had a few interuptions this evening so I think I could have made five more qso's. 20 M band was good. Tnx fer the fun time.



KF7WNS Operated by: Gary

Another fun sprint. Had a QSO going when the sprint started that's a good way to attract attention! Lots of new (new to me) calls. See everyone next time. 73/72, Gary



VE3DTI Operated by: Jose

Always a pleasure to meet other SKCC members over straight-key CW. At this SKS the first QSO went without a glitch but, after completing the second, my enthusiasm collapsed: the other station rejected VE3DTI insisting that it was not an SKCC call and proceeded to call QRZ over my frantic attempts to explain his error. In the spirit of the sprint there was nothing I could do except go QRT. However, the attached photo shows my record in the membership roster online with VE3DTI as one of two callsigns registered with SKCC. Hope for better luck next time. 73 to all, Jose VE3DTI, SKCC Nr. 7020.

VE3DTI is an SKCC call...



W4RQ Operated by: Rich

I had a great time as usual. Ed W7GVE great sig here tonight, Always a pleasure & Thanks for listening to my QRP.

I think Bonus points should be given to those who work a QRP station, you're doing the work, not the QRP station.



K4BAI Operated by: John

FT1000MP, Alpha 78, 1 KW, TH6DXX, dipole. Tried to stay on 20M for the whole two hours to as long as the rate held up and that would maximize bonus points. But rate dropped and stations worked earlier kept calling back for what would have been duplicate QSOs. So, went to 40 for the last seven minutes and did pick up one additional multiplier there. For the first hour was on a pace to make 80 QSOs, but the rate dropped. No DX heard or worked...only US and Canada. 67 QSOs on 20M and 4 on 40M. Thanks for all QSOs. 73, John, K4BAI.



KE3O Operated by: Bill

Another bold idea gone bad. Attempted to operate QRPp (running 400 mW)on 40 meters but condx here on the East Coast were poor. Thinking that I could push my little peanut whistle signal out during the Sprint was at best a pipe dream. Not discouraged, but must re-evaluate for the next event. 73/72, Bill



KF7DS Operated by: Don

Fun night...20m was in good shape from Portland, with strong signals from AL (K4BAI) and AZ/W7GVE...both S9:). And, to you Rodney, N4RAY...your QRP signal was 579. High point of evening was my first QSO with Nathan/PS7HD. 20m has been going long the past few nights, with QSOs to Romania, ARG, RI1ANP, etc...so was not surprised that most of my QSOs tonight were to the East Coast with some QSB. 73 and see you in WES. Don KF7DS



KE4YH Operated by: Stew

Worked 20 and 40 meters with OMNI VII and trapped vertical. Conditions weren't great but it was fun. PS7HD, Nathan, was a nice surprise.
AC2C's SKCC Logger worked flawlessly. Thanks Ron.

K4GM Operated by: George

Thanks to all who worked me. My first SKS 2 hour sprint. Lots of fun in the 90 minutes I had available.



VK7CW Operated by: Steve

Propagation did not favour VK at the time of the sprint so I got in plenty of practise calling CQ with my homebrew cootie. Only managed 4 contacts in the 2 hours and all on 15m. Thanks to Mike K8NS, Ken K7IFG, Bob AA6AC and Eric WW6M for working me. Did hear a lot of activity on 20m LP but no one was hearing me. Put out a few calls on 10m but all fell on deaf ears. Good fun as usual and can only hope propagation is better next time.



K6III Operated by: Jerry

Only had time for about 25 minutes of Hunt-n-Pounce at the beginning of the activity. I was hosting a BBQ at the house tonight. Even so, I added 4 more T's to my Senator log.




AA6AC Operated by: Bob

Two hours went by fast. First hour 15m several stations were on band. That was
nice. DX station VK7CW herd/worked on 15m. QSY to 20m when 15m went quiet. Several stations on band. Got PS7HD Brazil on 20m. Nice to hear DX stations. Both bands seemed to be workable. TNX to all in sprint. QSL's enroute. AA6AC
Bob #6276T CA.



WX4RM Operated by: Ron

Had a good time, but my 5 watts into 6BTV vertical just was not getting out tonite. Was glad to be heard by PS7HD, he must have very good hearing to pick me out of the noise. I heard lots of good signals tonite, but my signal just was not making the trip. There is always next month to try again.



K6ELQ Operated by: Tony

Unusual conditions on the West Coast, for me anyway. Only worked five stations west of Colorado and was down a few S/P/C from previous SKS. Signals were stronger this month, even the QRP stations. Only worked one band, 20 meters. Had fun and achieved one of my goals - picked up the additional needed C/T's for Tx8 with one to spare (I hope). 73 to all.



AI9IN Operated by: Steve

Not my best effort.



KA5TJS Operated by: Allen

20 was booming in. Great signals. Thanks to all and we will see you next month.

WA5AFD Operated by: Gerald

Only got to work the 30 minutes of the sprint. Conditions were good on 20 meters and got to work some new members. Thanks to all. 73



W3NP Operated by: Dave

Started out on 20 and it was in good condx with some really short skip (WV to OH and NJ with decent sigs!!) as well as some longer prop. Made one foray to 15 where I caught Ken K7IFG from OR. Went to 40 when 20 went down and finished out there. Felt I did well with my 5 watts and tribander/CF Zepp.
Rig: Ten Tec Eagle and keys were the Vibroplex Blue Racer Deluxe from '63 and the 1942 Vibroplex J-36. They were both sporting my just installed Wide Range weights from Donnie WA9TFT of 2B Radio Parts. Just put them on about 15 minutes before the sprint started and not much tweaking but I am very impressed so far.

K2DEP Operated by: Steve

Goodness. I got hammered by lots of stations operating my super powered 1 Transistor (2N2222) +6 other parts transmitter on 7050.3 @ 370mw. But KI0I in MO, 961 miles from me, gave me a 557 in our exchange. Thanks for that super QSO Mark; great ears. Tnx to KE3O and K3EW fer our QSO's. Receiver is an ICOM R71A with a HiMite attached. Antenna G5RV.

Good luck.

Good conditions here on all bands, 20M the first 30 mins 8 QSO's with new member K3EW in the bunch. 40M I found K0SKC MO Outlaw leader & others. On 80M I caught a couple of MO Outlaws along with old friend Jerry W0CLR a new number in the log. Also a nice surprise N3EIN Matt in PA. answered my CQ.
Had to cut the sprint short but had some great contacts, Thanks to all 73 Rick
