KCM Operated by: Larry

The bands were not the best. Here is MO we can blame the wind for blowing our signals the wrong way! Keep warm and mni tnx for the contacts.

73 Larry KC0M 8177



NO8C Operated by: Mike

Lots of fun!



KF7WNS Operated by: Gary

Great sprint! First time to work the Bonus Station, thanks Gary. 20M and 40M both very busy from start to finish. Hard to get through all the activity with my five watts. See you all next month. 73/72, Gary



KBETU Operated by: Phil

After the first 20 minutes, 20 meters was gone! Worked rest on 40 meters. Tried 80 meters - heard a few stations, but too much QRM/QRN and couldn't make contact. Wish the bands had been better, but not too bad all things considered.
C U next month. 72/73 Phil



NUMP Operated by: Bill

Lots of fun as usual. It's cold in MO. Hope everyone is staying warm. Ready for spring wx here. 73 es see you on the next sprint...Bill N0UMP

K5ENA Operated by: John

Very active SKS.

K4BAII Operated by: Jjohn

FT1000MP, Alpha 78, 1 KW, dipole, Vibroplex Deluxe Straight Key. Intended to start on 20M and it sounded good, but my antenna wouldn't load. Been having some intermittent problem with feed line. So started on 40 and stayed there. Most signals were strong, but QRN was high and I couldn't pull out a few stations under the QRN. Very sorry for those. Thanks for all QSOs. 73, John, K4BAI.



K1NV Operated by: Jon

It's good to be back for a two-hour Sprint even if it was only for 20 minutes. Conditions were good on 40 meters and I worked K7INA, number 11465-c, which indicates the group has grown a bit since I last participated in an activity.

The TS-940S and ZS6BKW dipole generated and radiated the signal from southern Nevada.

The new K1NV Nevada shack



AA9L Operated by: Rich

Wow, had a pile-up on 40 then it all went dead. Nothing on 80. Went back to 40 and called CQ but no luck. Basically it was a one hour contest. Go figure.
CU all in the next sprint. No, I won't give up my Vibroplex. I will get better.
73 Rich AA9l



NC5G Operated by: George

Divided the hour I had between 40 and 80. Sigs were strong both bands. Good fun!



WYBS Operated by: Bob

First sprint for me. Used the HX-50, HQ 180 and 1921 Vibroplex Original. Had a great time and look forward to the next one. 73-Bob-W0YBS



VE3FMW Operated by: Ron

Another enjoyable couple of hours at the keys ... thanks to all the folks who work so hard to organize our fun. And thanks to all the ops who took the time to pound the brass. Looking at my puny Q-totals, I suspect I must have dozed off for a while; hope it wasn't in the middle of a QSO!
73 and cu all next time ... Ron



WA3PRR Operated by: Ray

This was my first Straight Key Sprint, and I had a really good time!



K9SKC Operated by: Gary

This was my first time to operate using the club call sign, K9SKC. I feel honored by the invitation to play bonus station for this sprint, and thoroughly enjoyed handing out those extra points.

Running a frequency for the entire two hours would have been easy, but I mixed that up with some search and pounce operation. That way, some bonus points went to ops dedicated to CQing, as well as to search and pounce ops who answered my CQs.

The ol' cootie key got a workout this evening, but I usually put the SKCC NT9K Pro Pump into action when I slowed for a QRS op. Those who've heard me try to send with a bug will appreciate that I never touched it during this sprint.

My thanks to all the courteous ops that I encountered during this very mannerly sprint. 73 and see you for the next one.

Gary, K9ZMD
Ridgefield, WA



W7GVE Operated by: Ed

7 hours prior to the Sprint I had all of my teeth pulled so my operating was about as sharp as a marble--- I enjoyed all 2 hours, but was ready to quit at the end--- my apologies for some sloppy CW -- I am glad I made the event.. 73 ED-W7GVE



K7CHS Operated by: Rick

KA1SAW Operated by: Neal





VE3FUJ Operated by: Brion

I could only attend the last hour of the sprint. Condx weren't great, only managed to catch 2 stns tnx Guys. Brion



WB8ENE Operated by: Art

Spent most of my time on 40, but did manage to get one contact on 20 and two on 80. Had to turn on the station room heaters as soon as I got home from work so it would warm up the room a little before the sprint. Rig is Elecraft K3, key is Begali Blade, and antennas are dipole @ 20' for 20 meters and 102' ladder line fed doublet @ 15' for 80 and 40 meters. Thanks to all for the contacts. Now if I could just get K3Y in Hawaii, Asia, and Oceania before the month is over. 73, Art



WK2S Operated by: Art

Pretty good condx in NJ, even with 7 F and snow. Seems mostly to MO, 6 contacts there!
Fun sprint as always, stay warm everyone.



VE7KBN/W7 Operated by: Ken

Last SKS from this QTH for this year. Thnx for the sprints.Back to my HB1B next time for QRP.



W1HFF Operated by: Joe

Forgot about the sprint until the second hour. All contacts on 40. Very noisy band but strong signals made up for it. Thanks everyone.



K8JD Operated by: John

I only had half hour to participate in the SKS.
Used only the J-38 key and not my bug, stuck to my Butternut HF6 vertical and worked 80 and 40M during this month's Sprint.



KA5TJS Operated by: Allen

Well, I checked 20 meters and did not hear a thing. Went down to 40 and got 5 before I ran out of steam! Bands were not that good but thanks to all who copied by 50 watts. The ICOM 746Pro and 80 meter dipole at 50 ft.

CUL next time: Allen



AA6AC Operated by: Bob

Always fun to sprint. Too cold in the basement shack to sit through two hours straight-had to take warm up breaks. Can't wait for "patio portable" weather.
73 all and thanks to all the ops who have been K3Y.

I got in 8 minutes before the end of the sprint so I only made 3 contacts. I'll try to get home earlier next time! I didn't even tune down to my normal QRP levels so I ran about 75 watts.
