Thanks all for the Q`s hope c ya next time 73 Mark KI0I



K8TEZ Operated by: Larry

The first forty five minutes or so we tried "seek and pounce" as I thought this would give the qrp & other weaker stations a little more even footing. The second hour we camped out around 7.060 & wow there were some VERY strong stations who found me...It was good to hear from W4pca who used to live here in Amherst. Also Thanks to all the Missouri outlaws who worked us. This was fun but sort of hard to get used to tuning the radio, writing calls down on paper, working the key & logging on the laptop all at the same time...so if there was a short delay coming back to you it was probably a mechanical problem with the operator here.....Thanks again everyone...see you next month 73's Larry K8TEZ

VE3FMW Operated by: Ron

Great to get back into the sprint scrum ... a good way to take my mind off the heat and humidity ... 40 was surprisingly good for a summer evening once we got rolling ... and Bert's K5ZR sig was one of the strongest here, altho it was the most distant I worked ... thanks to all who took part ... cu in august .... 73 & enjoy the summer .... Ron



N5NK Operated by: Rondel

Totally forgot this was the day for the Sprint! Just happened to turn the radio on about 0010Z and heard AI4UN calling #CQ SKS." Afthr logging him I got a few more. Conditions were good on 20m so I stayed around till the end. I'm going to have to put the Sprints on my calendar. Operating Straight Key is a whole lot of fun!



N8KR Operated by: Ken

20 meters unproductive tonight but . . . "there's no meters like 40 meters!" Thanks to our bonus station, K8TEZ . . . Always good to work you, Larry. See you all next month!



N5JPX Operated by: Jim

Operating from my aircraft hangar this evening with the KX3 and an old Hustler mobile antenna mounted on the roof of the building. Thunderstorms popped up and had to cut it short tonight but had a lot of fun as usual. Never did hear Larry, K8TEZ but some great signal from NY and OH. Thanks to all who worked my modest little station and a special thanks to the folks that put these events together.

73/72
Jim, N5JPX

The Hangar Station



W6FPS Operated by: Ron

Twenty was good as usual. Listening from the West coast, Forty seamed busier than normal. I wish more could hear me. I heard nothing on Ten and Fifteen. Had a great time as always.
73, Ron



K6ELQ Operated by: Tony

That was a quick two hours but where were all the usual SPC's? Nice surprise was to work CR7AJL. The Missouri Outlaws were out in force - worked nine of them. Spent the whole time on 20m but didn't have time to hunt down K8TEZ and thought the sun was too high here to try 40m. Band started to peter out at the very end. Hope to see all of you again in August. 73 de K6ELQ Tony



WSZV Operated by: Eldon

had fun, only got about an hour in due to family and phone calls. looking forward to WES ten tec Jupiter at 100w, 160m loop up 25 to 30ft, cootie key



KC9W Operated by: Randy

WEATHER WAS BAD BUT OPTED TO WORK THROUGH THE THUNDER. QRN BIG TIME. SETTLED INTO A FREQ THAT I WAS TACTFULLY ADVISED THAT WAS A NIGHTLY TRAFFIC NET SO I MOVED. ONCE AGAIN A REALLY GOOD TIME. WAS EXCITED THAT THE BONUS STATION FOUND ME. AMAZING HOW FAST THAT TWO HOURS PASSES.



KF7WNS Operated by: Gary

Lots of activity on 20M tonite. Too much noise on 40M. Thanks to all who copied my 5Watts. Another great sprint, thanks all.



AG6RB/ Operated by: Bill

First time in the SKS, though I've been wanting to do this for a while. Portable in the local park, putting 20 W into a 40 m dipole up 25'. Propagation seemed pretty good (though maybe it was using 20 W rather than my usual 5 W), and I had a lot of fun. I even managed a run of ~30 minutes. Eventually the mosquitoes got to me, and the bites they caused meant I couldn't key straight anymore so I packed it up and went home. Aside from that, the weather was gorgeous and it was a great night to be on the air.

Thanks to all who participated for making this a fun and exciting event!



K7MJG Operated by: Mark

Always fun!



K7JFD Operated by: Jim

This was the first sprint I worked the whole time. Lots of fun. Been more active on SKCC lately. Looking forward to next sprint. Thanks for being patient with me.

73,

Jim K7JFD



KF7DS Operated by: Don

20m was crowded around the lower calling frequency, and at times I had to pinch the filter on the KX3 to 250hz and tweak the pass-band to separate everyone out:). Good DX too thanks to Nathan/PS7HD and Julio/NP3CW. Moved to 40m around 6:30pm PDT to only see the same hombres from 20m had moved down band too. See you next WES Don KF7DS.



W7BRO Operated by: Carl

Thunder storm moved in just as the sprint started, decided to play it safe, and unhooked the antennas.



AK4LP Operated by: Bob

Had a great time! Spent most of the Sprint on 40 Meters, but did have a few QSOs on 20. Always a pleasure to spend time with my SKCC friends!



KKI Operated by: Jack

Forty meters was a great band tonight. Thanks for all the contacts folks! Catch you next event. 73, jack



PS7AW Operated by: Charlon

As always very cool part of the SKS, this was very special for me, I inaugurated my new call sign PS7AW, few QSO'seo my last sprint was very difficult, in spite of being my friend Nat-PS7HD, the spread was not helping . Cha, PS7AW



KG6MC Operated by: Bob

Great Contest this month. Stayed busy the entire 2 hours.



KA5TJS Operated by: Allen

Just got to play for about 30 minuets on 40 meters. Band was good and I managed 3. Used the Icom 7410 at 5 watts and 80 meter dipole. CUL.

Allen



KA2KGP Operated by: Tom

Bands were pretty good this SKS. Good to hear many SKCC'ers on the air. Rig: IC-7000 at 50w. into dipole up 25 ft. w/ straight key. 73



K4BAI Operated by: John

FT1000MP, Alpha 91b, 1 KW, TH6DXX, dipole, Vibroplex Deluxe Hand Key. Heard no signals on 10 or 15 before the start, so started on 20, which was good to Europe, Brazil, and US beyond a pretty big skip zone. Stations as close as MO and KS were workable, but weaker than usual. Stations farther out were strong, including WL7WH in AK. 40M had low noise and good activity with no noticeable skip zone. I have been out of town on SKS night for many months and it was good to be QRV again. Thanks for all QSOs. 73, John.



WA4FAT Operated by: Bill

Thanks to the always entertaining SKS, and working only 40, I managed to add better than a dozen new numbers toward my quest for S. Thanks so much to everyone! I find good success working the periphery of the recommended frequency ranges, and I tend to attract the QRP operators there who prefer not to slug it out in the middle of the mayhem. Believe me, I try all the harder to pull those diminutive signals from the noise, and I take their operation and skill seriously. For the few I may not have been able to retrieve, I apologize. And for those who worked diligently to dig me out of the mud, my profound gratitude! A special vintage QSL for any who might like it. 73/72!




KCPMH Operated by: Wayne

Thanks to the five brave souls who pulled my 3 watts out of the mud, this sprint is always a blast, the SKCC folks are some of the best out there. Worked hart to get Tony out in CA, thanks buddy.
God Bless all de Wayne - KC0PMH



WS9E Operated by: Joe

I got on for a short time and worked H&P only on 20 and 40 meters. Worked some members for the first time. Signals seemed pretty good. I used the Peoples Liberation Army straight key and the Orion with my stealth dipole.
It was great to hear so many club members on. See you next time.



WA6CAL Operated by: Joe

First timer - fun way to kill a couple of hours!



K8JD Operated by: John

Only 4 QSOs on 20M and the rest on 40M, tried 80M but no replies to my CQ SKS.
Just could not get a good run opf QSOs goint this time :(



W3NP Operated by: Dave

Band conditions didn't seem to be too bad here in WV, at least on the 2 bands I was on - 20 and 40. The noise level from summer storms was fairly high on 40.
I did mostly S&P ops this time for a laid back and relaxing evening on the radio. 73 de West Virginia



KB1UOH Operated by: Charlie

Lots of noise but none the less it was fun. First time I have worked the special station in quiet some time. QRP is always fun against the big guns. 72 Charlie



K7IFG Operated by: Ken

It was another fun contest. Heard N0UMP 579 on 40 meters but he said he had QRN so couldn't get my Call. Finished on 20 meters and when contest was over I was called by LZ2RS. Sigs from KP4 and Brazil were also very nice. See ya next month. 73 de Ken



W9HLY Operated by: Vern

Noted I called several stations that I had worked before but did not get a response. Could it be the summer conditions or an ageing antenna?

Vern



W4HAY Operated by: Frank

Since my new K3 is in the shop for the 2nd time, I tried using an old Conar receiver (no AGC, 6 KHz IF bandpass, very touchy VFO) and crystal controlled 7 Watt, 5763 homebrew vacuum tube rig. After 45 minutes of having my eardrums blown out by frontend overload I called it quits after completing exchanges with only 3 stations.

It was fun, though. See y'all for WES in August.



NP3CW Operated by: Julio

Worked one hour only.

All contacts were on 20 meters band.

Only worked Doug VE3DVC and Nat PS7HD as DX stations.

Not lucky to hear or work the bonus station K8TEZ.

Good luck.

KD2FNA Operated by: Tom

Heard lots of good signals on 40... and even worked a few. Thanks to all for making this such a fun event!



K9PMV Operated by: Jerry

Tried twenty meters first but not much action except for two Europeans. QSyed to reliable fourty meters. Plenty of strong signals on this band. Fun as always.



N4API Operated by: Brian

40 meters was packed tonite from 7049 to 7056. Tucker, KK4UNZ, our Young Buck had the right idea. He got just outside the congestion on the upper end of the band and had a ball !! 73 all. Brian



NO8C Operated by: Mike

This "sprint" stuff is gettin mighty addicting! Looking forward to next months festivities already...... As always best 73's from Miller City, Ohio (NO8C)



K2DEP Operated by: Steve

One of the most fun SKSs for me. Used my KWD TS590S @ QRO to G5RV with a SCHURR MMK hand key (a half pint key that, in my opinion, is just absolutely the most wonderful key to send on). Condx were pretty good west but not so hot going south towards FL. I felt that I was at an exact point of skip on some of those 599++ QSOs from OH, MI, IL, etc. Picked up KR5RR in CA for a QSO. Thanks JB and thanks to all who responded to my SKS CQ. Hope to see you all again soon. Working on my Senator now. 73 Steve

VE5BCS Operated by: Harold

A fine way to spend a fine evening cul.



WA1VIL Operated by: Greg

My ears are still ringing from the noise on 40 but always fun to sprint! Heard a lot of 6's on 20 but nothing else and my 5 watts wasn't doing any business. Special thanks to WA4CHQ for the 2xQRP QSO! 73 all and see you next time.



N4JD Operated by: John

Had a great time cannot wait till August sks
