KKI Operated by: Jack

A nice night for a sprint. Managed most of the contacts on 40 meters. Twenty and 80 just a few. 80 meters got a little noisy so went back to 40 to finish the sprint. Again the K4VIZ Cootie Key and the Eagle. A nice number of new members again this evening. Look forward to another. 73, jack



WB4OMM Operated by: Steve

First ever SKCC contest....I'll be back for more! Only was able to operate the last 45 mins of the Sprint, but had fun. FT-2000 running 100W to a 268' loop antenna, Speed-X key. Great band conditons, good signals and very little noise (only worked 80M). 73 to all!!! Steve WB4OMM #8793



NTA Operated by: John

Lots of fun being the bonus station - thanks for the Q's! 15 & 80 were pretty marginal, 40 was a little slow, but 20 was pretty busy. K3, KPA500, doublet & vertical, K2RFP Sprint Logger, and Begali Camelback key.



KBETU Operated by: Phil

Another enjoyable sprint. Thanks to one and all. C U next time. 72, Phil



KF7WNS Operated by: Gary

20M was really hot tonite. Hard to get a word in edgewise with 5 watts. Lots of fun and great challenge as usual. 73/72 and see you next month, Gary



K7CHS Operated by: Rick

Ok, I really tried this time and kept my focus, which is had for me because I have a very short attention span. HI HI Stayed on 20m the whole 2 hours, the band was doing well for me here in Kingman.
Thanks for all the contacts, 73...Rick



KE4YH Operated by: Stew

Fun, Fun, Fun!
OMNI VII @ 100W to ground mounted 6BTV with about 40 radials. Vizkey CamelBack hand key.
Fun, Fun and more Fun!




KU8L Operated by: Curt

Bands very poor here. I think 40 went long early and then got very noisey...not surprising with the Solar activity in recent days I guess. Pretty dismal rate and had a hard time pulling many stations from the noise...sorry...I know I had to give up on a few. As in Sprints before, I wasted 15min on 20 with nothing and then moved to 40. Finished with good activity on 80. I am too impatient to do S&P ?????. Thanks for the contacts and looking forward to working a few stations with the one-tube "RF-Generator" in the May WES.

Cheeers,

Curt



WS8KCC Operated by: Om1

Great time, as usual!



K8TEZ Operated by: Larry

K3EW Operated by: Phil

20 was THE band tonight



NO8C Operated by: Mike

Sure had a good time! Thanks and 73s de Mike NO8C (Miller City, Ohio)



WABGV Operated by: Slim

Warm weather has arrived and makes it hard to come inside and get started on the sprint. Worked mostly 0n 20 with 2 each on 40 and 80. Tried 160 and heard 1 station but he was on 1.820 and I have a birdie on that freq. (couldn't make out the call.)



NUMP Operated by: Bill

Bands were in good shape tonight. A little QRN on 80 but there was a lot of activity. I was running an Yaesu FT-857D and an 80 meter windom. Also using my homebrew straight key most of the time and once in a while I use the Lionel bug.
Had a phone call right in the middle of the sprint. Had a great time and looking forward to the next one....73....Bill




K8JD Operated by: John

I tried to finish off the last 15 Minutes on 160 M but got no replies to my SKS calls there and finally got a few more QSOs on 80M at the last minute.
That kind of dropped my QSO count. Overall sprint was fun, heard a lot of old familiar calls but there were plenty of newer numbers to work also.
see you next sprint and maybe for a ragchew between sprints :D



WD5ABC Operated by: Kerry

I (again) got in for the last few minutes of the sprint but at least I got off work in time to make 2 contacts. It seems to be my habit lately, I hope to work on that soon once I get in a more permanent location.

73,
Kerry, WD5ABC



KU4GW Operated by: Cliff

I used both of these keys tonight! I like both these keys so well I can't choose between them which one I like the best! One works just as great as the other! I had a good time tonight, first sprint I've even participated in for quite a while, although I only made 7 QSOs. I hurt my back 2 days ago and sitting for a long period of time seems to make it hurt worse. All I was doing was walking from one room to another! That's all I was doing in 2007 when 2 of the vertebrae in my spine collapsed helping me find and beat stage 3 multiple myeloma cancer in my bone marrow. My back breaking back then saved my life because this stubborn old mule would never have went to the doctor to find it had it not been for my back breaking. Anyway, all in all I had fun tonight and that was my only goal easily achieved. Since warm weather is finally getting here I hope to work next month's sprint QRP portable using the Hendricks PFR-3A and a 42 feet end fed wire vertical. Tonight I used the FT-1000MP Mark V at 100 watts into a 260 feet doublet up about 40 feet. My last CQ at 0142 snagged me UA9FBC Andy in Permsky, Russia although he wasn't a SKCC member he was booming in at 599 running 50 watts. Very 73 to all until next Sprint which I'm going to make a special effort to start participating in the CW sprints more often, not only in SKCC, but in NAQCC and Flying Pigs Run For The Bacon sprints as well. Very 73/72 de Cliff - KU4GW - SKCC#652

WS9E Operated by: Joe

I got on for about an hour and worked 20 and 40. I could hear signals on 15, but they were very weak. I used the Ten-Tec Orion, the "stealth" dipole and the Nye-Viking Speed-x hand key.
Thanks for the contacts. See you next time.

K4UFT Operated by: Ted

Stayed on 20M. Tried 10 and 15 Meters, but No Joy.

FT-450 @50 Watts to Home Brew vertical on tripod with single 1/4 wave counterpoise running North. Czech Army key.

Seem to have a pipeline into Russia and Eastern Europe every night after about 2300 EDT (0300 UTC) with this same setup except 100 Watts. Hopefully this will hold up for the May WES in a couple of weeks.

K6ELQ Operated by: Tony

Spent the whole time on 20m on basically two frequencies with the antenna fixed toward the NE since the Q's kept coming. Had a bit of a problem on one of the frequencies. Apparently W1AW/? came on close to my frequency and I started to get (intentionally) jammed. Stood my ground until someone came on and told me about W1AW so I QSY'd - the downside of tight filters. Fun time as usual. See you next month. 73, Tony



WL7WH Operated by: Bob

Was in the middle of a welding project and forgot about the time....Got in the last 10 minutes. Oh well, next month I hope to remember!!!



NP3CW Operated by: Julio

The only band open to my area was 20M. Called CQ SKS in 40, 15 and 10 M but no response. Missed 41 minutes of transmiting time. Worked 11 T's, 1C, 1S and 4
without letters on the SKCC number.

I was lucky to find 5 new SKCC numbers. Thanks to Jim VE3KQN and Kevin VE4MR
for contacts. Missed the Special SKCC Member Bonus Station again.

Good luck to all participants.



K4JPN Operated by: Steve

Good to see 20M open to the West Coast and the QRN down on 80M. Thanks to all who pulled out my QRP signal. 73, Steve K4JPN

K2ZC Operated by: Dave

I was just piddling around in the shack trying to interface a new computer to my logging programs and radios when I heard the sprint in progress. I had my KX3 connected through LPBridge2 to NaP3,and DXLab suite. I ran around the shack scattering junk everywhere looking for my straight key. I found it in time to make three contacts. It was fun and I plan to be more active in upcoming sprints. 73 to all. Dave



WB8ENE Operated by: Art

Used my newly assembled Peaberry V2 software defined radio with PowerSDR v2.4.4. I turned on the laptop just as I began the sprint, and that was a mistake. Until the computer finished doing it's thing during and after boot-up, the CPU was maxed out, causing gaps in my receive audio. I believe it was chopping up my transmitted signal a bit as well. Sorry about that Joey WN4AT. It settled down after that. Nice little rig though. Cranked it down to 1 Watt for the sprint. Thanks for the contacts on 20 and 40. Maybe by the next sprint, I'll have everything buttoned up, without all of the loose wires and clip leads holding everything together. 73, Art



W2NRA Operated by: Art

Very fun, fast paced, sprint. Sat on one freq on 20m & ran stations for most 1st hour, then moved to 40m, but quickly ran out of callers, so tried 80m, nothing there, so jumped on band scope peaks for last 10 minutes.

Request to QRS SKCC members - Don't be afraid to call me. I will ALWAYS QRS for anyone who does. And don't feel you need to rush. Take your time, I look forward to working you. 73 de Art W2NRA SKCC #11634T

know at the time that he was the bonus station! Thanks for the sprint.
CU next time.



K7IFG Operated by: Ken

Nothing on 10 meters. Only a few signals on 15 though the band sounded good.
20 meters was as usual very crowded. 40 meters heard strong signals from the
East especially W9RFX, But they are now hearing us on West coast. Not being a heavy contester I really enjoy just getting on for just 2 hours. 73 de Ken

Conditions good on 20m and 40m. Great turn out. Look forward to next sprint. Thanks to all, Art.

KB9DFE Operated by: Steve

First SKS in a while and nice to work some of the guys I've worked over the years as well as new members. Only worked 40m for an hour or so and conditions were good for midwest contacts.



K2DEP Operated by: Steve

Used my 1 tube transmitter as a test for the upcoming WES next month. I hope those that are using transmitters with VFOs don't block out those with one tubes and the limited amount of crystal frequencies available especially on 40M, a problem that I ran into in this SKS. Hope to work some folks in the WES.



AB8SA Operated by: Alan

Had a great time!! Look forward to next time.



AH6AX Operated by: Larry

Wish I'd had more time to play, but only managed to make one QSO.. Looking forward to next one!
