Interesting bands. 15 was open, but not many stations. 40 & 80 were really noisy. 20m was open the whole two hours. Thanks for the Q's. K3, doublet & vertical, K2RFP Sprintlogger, and Begali Camelback.



K8TEZ Operated by: Larry

Good conditions on 20 but heavy qrn on 40 from storms over the lake.Great to work AE7UT-STAN/K7CHS RICK / & WN4AT joey...people we always see on the soapbox but usually never work. Despite the storms out over Lake Erie we had a lot of calls & a lot of fun in the sprint.
Thanks to all who put the sprints together 73's Larry

The Lake on a nicer Day



AA6AC Operated by: Bob

Worked 15m hunt/pick and few on CQ's. Tony K6ELQ was working 20m. Tony and I are in same city (Oxnard, Ca.) 10 miles apart perhaps. Was glad to have 15m doing a bit. DID find WS8KCC on 15m and his signal hung in there thru SKS. Hope
he did well. That's it AA6AC Bob CA 6276T. QSL's follow. 73's TNX all.

VE3DTI Operated by: Jose

Rig: KX3 at 5W. Ant: 43 ft. wire. The key was the old practice "PTT" key on the picture. This key was used by my father before he became a professional telegraphist in the 1920s and 1930s. Under the base for the axle the key has the inscription: "1871 MC". Except its axle (a metric 5mm rod) all parts are original. Being a practice key it does not have any means for connecting to an electric circuit. Not wishing to alter it in any permanent way, I just slid two small pieces of copper ribbon under two of its brass parts, which I then connected to the KX3 via a cable with alligator clips and a stereo plug. I am sure this is the very first time that this key has been used in actual QSOs. I'd appreciate any insight towards identifying its maker and country of origin. Much appreciated. 73 de Jose VE3DTI, SKCC Nr. 7020C.




W5KDM Operated by: Noel

A good old fashion Mississippi, summertime electrical storm brought my fun to halt very early into the event.



KD4EE Operated by: Scott

Gud signals on 20M. 73 to all.



K6ELQ Operated by: Tony

I stayed on one 20m frequency the whole time so I didn't have a chance to hunt down WS8KCC. I never moved my antenna which was pointed NE so I was pleasantly surprised to work OR, WA and Mexico off the ends. There were a few strong signals but QSB took the weaker ones down to my noise floor which was low tonight for a change.

Thank you for the QSO's and hope to see you all again soon.

73 de K6ELQ Tony



KF7DS Operated by: Don

Band conditions from OR were generally good on 20m...my panadapter in Win4K3Suite was alive with SKCC signals from 14.048-62...was really fun and nice to see. Not many new faces - mostly old farts. See you all in WES...73, Don KF7DS



KLUW Operated by: Russ

Got stormed out tonight.. Could only get on for 5 minutes at the end..



K6CSL Operated by: Bert

Fun Sprint this evening. First time I have ever worked the Special Station for the event. 73's & good night to all from the beautiful San Joaquin Valley. Bert, K6CSL



KA2KGP Operated by: Tom

I worked the Special Station WS8KCC on 20m. (OM4) and 80m. (OM3), but couldn't make it a "hat-trick" with 40m. Lots of QRN lightning crashes from a passing spring storm. Rig: IC-7000 at 25w. into a dipole up 25 ft. w/ straight key.
CU next SKS - 73.




AA4H Operated by: Carl

My 1st sprint, lot of fun.



WB8ENE Operated by: Art

Operated a little over one hour in this sprint. I usually make more contacts on 40 than I do on 20, but this time it was the other way around. I picked out the stronger signals so they would be more likely to hear my 1 Watt signal. Rig is Peaberry V2, a nice little SDR. Antenna used on 20 was a dipole @ 20'. Antenna used on 40 was a 102' doublet, ladder line fed, @ 15'. Thanks for the contacts. 73, Art



KP4SJ Operated by: Pablo

WA4FAT Operated by: Bill

This was my first SKS event and I had a blast. And a big thank you to N4RAY for reminding me that the SKS dates were UTC, or I would have been a day late! My entry is for 40 Meters, the only band for which I have an effective antenna, and thanks to all the great operators who pulled me out of the mud, static crashes and QRM. And thanks as well to the large number of C, T and S members I was able to work. I'm now closing in on my own T advancement. 73! Bill, WA4FAT




VE5BCS Operated by: Harold

The 20m band was good so stayed there. Nice to here the band full. tnx to all



WS8KCC Operated by: Om

Through rain and area storms, the WS8KCC team of OM's slugged it out on 4 bands! Two stations ran K2's, one station a K3, and one station a Kenwood TS-570S. Each station had an Alpha to assist through the QRN of the bands. The team of "OM's" included station "Boss" Ted-K8AQM, 80m Ken-K8KIC and logger Bill-KD8TTM, 40m Ken-N8KR, 20m Kurt-W8IQ, 15m Noz-AD7TM and logger Wes-AC8JF. Every member of the team are SKCC members. Running multi in these events is a blast! Lot's of chatter and laughter and good fun!

WS8KCC Multi-op Bonus Station



W3NP Operated by: Dave

Started out on 15 where the skip was very short as well as normal. 599+ signals within 300 miles of WV. After 12 qso's on 15 went to 20 and stayed there. My pan-adapter showed wall to wall signals on 20 so I answered CQ's for a while and then found a slot to call CQ for the rest of the time. The bands were a bit noisy due to nearby T'storms.
K3@ 100watts to KT-34A. Keys: Vibroplex Presentation bug (1956) as well as German Junker and Navy Flameproof straight keys. 73 de West Virginia



N3EIN Operated by: Matt

A line of thunderstorms conveniently moved through at 2345Z leaving good signals in their wake. The OMs in MI (WS8KCC) were all 599 (80/40/20/15 meters) across the 450 miles to PA. Signals on 20 meters were particularly strong, but The C21 has some intermittent TX problem so I called it a night early.

VE3FUJ Operated by: Brion

I had to shut down early as T-S static was getting worse, I didn't want to take any chances. Brion 4936T



N8BB Operated by: Werner

Noise and more noise, thunderstorms through all evening and just plain wall of qrn. Will get her next time. KX3 1 watt dipole.



N8KQ Operated by: Randy

Lots of noise here from storms in the area and then came the close one...So had to sign, but fun as always... Randy



K8BAT Operated by: John

The frequencies were crowded tonight. I did accomplish 14 contacts.



KC2FOL Operated by: Rich

Thanks to all for a pleasant two hours. --Rich, KC2FOL



KC9UNL Operated by: Curt

Bad storm and QRN limited operation. Was able to get a couple new #'s and WS8KCC. Still lots of fun. CU next SKS



NP3CW Operated by: Julio

Less than 47 mins on this SK Sprint.
Heard WS8KCC in 40 mtrs but he never heard me.
Tnx to VE3DVC Doug in ON, AA6AC Bob in CA and KP4SJ Pablo in PR for contacts.
No new SKCC numbers this time.
Good luck to all.



K4JPN Operated by: Steve

Thanks to all who pulled my 4W QRP signal out. It was good to hear 15M open only though I only worked 2 SKCC stations on 15M, maybe there is hope for the sun spots. 73, Steve K4JPN

NO8C Operated by: Mike

Wow! What a good time... Thanks to everyone involved. Best 73's from Miller City, Ohio de Mike (NO8C)



VE7KBN/6 Operated by: Ken

Ran HB1B with Buddipole from Portable QTH near Grande Prairie, AB.
Antenna location was not the best but had fun as usual. Thanks to
those who dug me out. Heard bonus station but could not make
contact with them. Thanks for the sprints.



WA1VIL Operated by: Greg

Always fun to sprint! Nice to see 15 open from here for about the first half hour. Then 20 and 40 until the storm QRN made for a very slow last half hour. Lucky to work WS8KCC on three bands, just couldn't get through on 80 at QRP level for a sweep. But I'll take spring and summer temps over good conditions on 80 and 160! Thanks for the contacts and hope to work you next time!



N9OL Operated by: John

Another great SKS. Enjoyed it muchly!



K9TM Operated by: Tim

First SKCC event and QSO. Looking forward to the next. Thanks to N8KR for the loaner J38. 73, Tim



K9JP Operated by: Jeff

Had a lot of fun, I need to operate this sprint more often. Thank you everyone that heard my 2 watts or less from my KX3. My first QSO was Tony, W4FOA. He was 599 plus 30 dB here. I was running about 100 milliwatts for that QSO. Great ears
Tony! 73 de Jeff K9JP



WSZV Operated by: Eldon

Just had a few minutes to play but did get in 2 contacts



WA2FBN Operated by: Ken

Not much time to work sprint. QRP 4watts



KC9W Operated by: Randy

I truly enjoyed this SKS event. This is the first time I have entered one of these. The two hours goes by very quickly I found. I was not sure what was the best strategy for my QRP station. I mainly sat in one place and sent CQ. I did move around for short periods of time but returned to the frequency and called CQ. I was able to find and work the special stations on two bands which I was happy about. I am certain I will try one of these again. The SKCC gang has renewed my excitement about amateur radio. Thanks to all who dug my QRP station out of the noise.



KKEX Operated by: Rick

Big signals on 40M TU WS8KCC for the bonus, K8TEZ & K8EE OH and MO Outlaws N0UMP & W0YZZ...lot's of interruptions tonight...73 Rick
