Thanks for the QSO's, WU1V had a outstanding QRP signal on 20, wonder what antenna he is using. Did not have a lot of time to operate. C U next sprint

Fun, but noisy here. Got jumped by a few Missouri Outlaws - thanks Slim, Mitch and Mark. Got a good number of stations I haven't worked in a while, and know I missed a lot of weak ones this time. Now, I'm off to tally those T's - Senator here I come!

KB1OIQ Operated by: Andy

This was my first time using my "new" J37 with the leg clamp. I wore it faithfully for 1.5 hours with no issues. Yes, I wiggled my toes from time to time, just in case. KB4QQJ gets the award for my first QSO with this key. 40m was very busy with several pileups! I snagged a couple of you on 20m also. It wouldn't be an SKCC event if I didn't put N3PDT in the log hi hi. Running 100W G5RV IC746-PRO. Thanks for the fun, everybody, and 73 de Andy KB1OIQ.

AC2JO Operated by: Bill

Thanks everybody.



N8BB Operated by: Werner

Ok, now that was fun. Worked AF2Z Drew at the last minute, just under the wire. Don't know why but this was more fun than I have had in a long time. 1 watt really is effective and really fun. Take care everyone, next time!!!



WU1V Operated by: Rick

I heard PS7HD backscattering on 40M but he couldn't pull out my 5 watts, probably didn't even hear a peep out of me hihi. Also heard Tony K6ELQ loud and clear on 20M and 40M but couldn't raise him. One 2xQRP QSO with Randy KB4QQJ. Worked the full 2 hours but often couldn't make myself heard through all the activity on both 20 and 40 meters, but I love QRP for the challenge and I was happy with my 12 Q's! 72/73, Rick



AA6AC Operated by: Bob

Two hrs went fast. 15m first hour 2 QSO some CQ with no joy. QSY 20m second hour 5 QSO. One DX stn VE7LAJ on 15m. DID NOT hear PS7HD did look for stn.

Finally went to 40M but noise was very high tonight. Only managed 2 QSO's there before the clock ran out. Fun as usual. See you next month, 73.

My setup



W3NP Operated by: Dave

Very good condx on 20 so I stayed there for more than half of the sprint. I did work Nat PS7HD on 20 but it was before the event started and his signal was very weak and watery and he gave me 339. Finished up on 40. I copied some very nice QRP sigs on both bands.
I was QRO for the first SKS event in a long time. Rig: Omni 7 at 85 watts along with the 3 el tribander and my CF zepp. Keys were the Vibroplex anniversary model along with my Junker straight key. It was a very busy 2 hours. 73 de West Virginia.

A great night here in Virginia for 20M and 40M although 20M faded badly in the last 30 minutes. I worked the Sprint with my trusty K2, J-38 key, and a doublet in the pines at about 30'.

AF2Z Operated by: Drew

Good sigs on 20 & 40 but had to contend with local QRN wipeouts every few minutes. Tried timing my CQ's to the noise bursts in order to hear the replies... New for me, worked Bob GM3ZDH in Scotland on 20. Also, got a surprise call from new member in Norway, Mick LA5SAA on 40m-- my first SKCC QSO that QTH. After the SKS I heard Mick working lots of SKCCers on 40m, so the band was doing well... I never made it to 80m; have no good antenna there anyway... My rig: Elecraft K3 running 100 watts to a Cobweb antenna in the attic.



K6FFY Operated by: Nick

It was nice to be back, I hope I can stay awhile.



W1HFF Operated by: Joe

Not much time. All contacts on 40. Thanks everyone.



WB2UWU Operated by: Finn

Got to use my brand new IC-718. I like it very much.
I used to use the filter between my ears with no problem,
but for a while I was using the OMNI-D and got spoiled by
using the narrow filters in that rig.
So I have to get a CW filter for the 718.
73 Finn WB2UWU SKCC #1708. TenTec R4020 at 5 watt

Nice Sprint. Was very tired, but still worked 22. After the Sprint, I crashed. Did not work bonus station at all. Looking forward to next Sprint. Hopefully I will be a little more attentive. Thanks to my contacts. SRI to the ones I could not pull out. Thanks to SKCC and K2RFP Sprint Logger.




KEN Operated by: Eliot

This sprint was a real delight. W5ZR about 30 over on 40 meters; N8BB - how does he sound that good with 1 watt? and I had a nice little run around 7.110. The venerable J38 doing the duty with the new TS590 (really nice job fighting adjacent channel QRM.

Looking forward to the WES.

Good luck.
