Always enjoy the SKS, just unfortunate conditions not favourable for VK at that time. Thanks to K9PMV Jerry, AA6AC Bob, W5ZR Bert and KP4SJ Pablo for the SKS QSO's.



WABGV Operated by: Slim

Good signal tonight... Mostly hunt and pounce this evening. Such a nice fall day around here and topping it off with an SKCC sprint makes today special. 73 all.



WSZV Operated by: Eldon

KB1OIQ Operated by: Andy

WOW! I heard lots of closely packed SKCC signals on 40m this evening. I did the "hunt and pounce" routine this evening, following some stations up the dial doing the same thing. I *think* I got PS7HD, too! Tonight, I used the IC-746PRO with 100W and the G5RV (mounted as a V (not inverted)). Thanks for the fun, and 73 de Andy KB1OIQ



WD5ABC Operated by: Kerry

I only had time to operate the last 30 mins of the sprint so I only made 8 contacts. Thanks for all 8 guys who were patient with my puny-weak 5 watt signal and my rusty bug fist. I used the Czech key the last couple of times so I decided to switch back to the 1941 Vibroplex Original this time. I could tell I haven't used the bug for a while!

73 and thanks for another fun sprint!
Kerry, WD5ABC

N3PDT Operated by: Doug

Here I was fumbling around trying out my new key (NZ3N QRP) and came across an SKS call! I need to pay better attention to when these are! So, of course switched to straight key and had just a fun time as I always do with these. Thanks so much for the great activities, I have never been disappointed in participating.

AK4LP Operated by: Bob

Another fun event! I worked 40, then 20, then back to 40. I worked my first Senator ever (K0LUW, Russ in NE) - that was a surprise, as I didn't even know such a thing existed - LOL! But anybody who can attain that level certainly commands the respect of all, and it was great to get him in my log. Thanks to everybody I met on the airwaves tonight.
Bob, AK4LP

K5ENA Operated by: John

Enjoyed 20 and 40.



KF7DS Operated by: Don

Well, the wx changed in Portland (that means rain) and the bands became really quiet compared to the past month (i.e. little static). Had limited time (as always) but got an hour or so of play time. Nat/PS7HD was a good 569, and Bert/W5ZR was easily S9. And, most from the Midwest and East Coast was well over 57 most of the evening. 20m went south around 6:30pm PST - switched to 40m and the band was in great shape. Lots of fun. Best, KF7DS/Don



KC4FLT Operated by: Carl

Thanks to recent work by the local electric company, my noise level was below s-9 for the first time in a year: it was s-1! SO I had a blast and finally worked the "weak ones." Good to work KK7YJ from MT and N7IGI from UT on 40m! Used an old TS-450S with a Junker straight key.

K8JD Operated by: John

Made 20 Contacts on 40M
Made 5 each on 80 and 20M
Only one Centurion.
One senator worked on this Sprint.



WS8K Operated by: Tim

The conditions were good, but man, the QRM on 40M was unreal. Yet, there was a lot of clear space above 7.060MHz. I'm going to try CQing higher up the band next time. 73s to all and TNX for a good contest. Tim, WS8K



W3NP Operated by: Dave

Conditions seemed to be pretty good. Started on 20, went to 40 for awhile but found the usual gathering freqs to be extremely crowded -moved up to the 7.115 area and made a few and then went to 80 where I finished up.

Since this is a Soapbox:....I have noticed that with our increasing membership and participation in the sprints we have been spreading out a bit which is a good thing. As a suggestion we should all try keeping our power to a level fitting the condx. I have heard some super strong signals with key clicks extending some distance. I run QRP most of the time - by choice, but 50 to 75 watts or so is all the power that is usually needed and it will help to better utilize the freqs we have available. Also, with most of the modern rigs and the better filtering we have, it is not out of question to have 4 Qso's per Khz but we need to carefully zero-beat and not assume that a station that can be heard near a whole freq number like 7052 for example is actually on a whole number freq. I like to operate on x.025, and x.075 as well as x.050.....off soapbox.

Rig for the sprint: Ten Tec Eagle @ 5 watts and the keys were my Junker straight key and the Vibroplex Anniversary Edition bug.
72, 73 de West Virginia



WX4RM Operated by: Ron

Used attic dipole & QRP, results not as good as using outdoor vertical!!! Had to try it though.

It was a fun sprint. Finally heard NG1O with one minute left but time ran out before I could get him.



AA6AC Operated by: Bob

First 10 minutes checked out 10m NO JOY. QSY to 15m several stations working band. Found DX VK7CW and 7 USA stations. 15m went quiet. QSY to 20m several stations on small segment. Did find PS7HD and KP4SJ for DX and 6 USA. Did not
hear any Canadian Prov. No NG1O bonus herd. No adds to WAS (-3). Did find SKCC
founder Kerry (TX) #12 in sprint. Hope SKSE will be good next week. Was fun.
AA6AC Bob CA #6276T QSL's follow mail..

NU4M Operated by: Greg

Antenna was doublet off ground about 6ft taped along walls outside of house.
My full wave loop broke on one side due to the weight of moss from the pecan trees I use to raise it. I had to play QRP this time with 5 watts. My first time using QRP so I am lucky to get two QSO's.
NU4M Greg



WA1VIL Operated by: Greg

Always fun to sprint! Wish the landline hadn't interrupted so much. 40 was really loaded 7050-7060 but no love in the "old Novice section. Good to see 80 start to come back. The "thrill" QSO this time was Bob AA6AC on 15 meters. Thanks for the contacts and hope to work you next time!

Nice sprint with good band conditions. Rig: TenTec Argosy II at 50w. into a dipole up 25 ft. w/ straight key.
