K2HT Operated by: Dick

Thanks for the QSO's, QRN was heavy in MO this evening and caused me to miss a lot of the QRP folks. Couple of solar flares didn't help either. Still had a great time. C U next sprint.

AA9WP Operated by: Don

Hi Everyone, not much of a score this evening...wife wanted to move furniture, had to check in with the local WX net, and WINLINK net. And printing out information for a meeting next month....multitasking does not mix with CW Sprinting. See you soon. Don



W7BRO Operated by: Carl

Used a newly acquired Hi-Mound HK-708 key for this event. Apparently the governor was removed from this key, as it wanted to go fast! Thanks for the new ones.



NWM Operated by: Mitch

Lots of activity tonight!! Surprisingly worked 5 stations from OK as high state total. Nice to hear the regulars plus a bunch of new ones. Thanks for the Qs!!

K3SEN Operated by: Dale

Had lots of fun with my new Kent Straight key!



WA4FAT Operated by: Bill

Always a fun event! Might have worked a few more if my granddaughter hadn't had issues with the iPad and my cat Rain had kept from running interference between my key and rig. I swear I caught his tail in the key more than once. Hoping I may have worked one or two new ones toward my 'Quest for S'. Peace and happiness to all my SKCC family!



KF7WNS Operated by: Gary

20M was in pretty good shape tonight. Heard Rodney, but he was kinda popular. Best DX with my K1@5W - KB1OIQ/Andy in MA. See you next month. 73/72, Gary



W4HAY Operated by: Frank

Alternated between the Vibroplex Original and the Navy knob SK this time. Only tried 40 it was very noisy, but just about everybody was Q5 copy. Very enjoyable SKS.



ADAB Operated by: Jim

Lots of fun, thanks for the QSOs, Jim



KI8JY Operated by: Dave

Thanks to all for a great SKS - many fine signals and operators were heard here in SW OH tonight - only tried 20m and 40m this time - 73 until next time, Dave



AB8FJ Operated by: Ted

Used my K3 at 5W on 20 meters. Used my Ten-Tec Rebel at 4W on 4 meters. The loaded Sketch emulated a K3 for computer control so was able to read the frequency direct into SKCC Logger via the USB port. Lots of activity on 40 this evening. Thanks to all for the contacts!



K8TEZ Operated by: Larry

CArroll (w4pca) I heard you on tonight but many stations calling each other. Stations I did work were MO outlaws Dick, Mitch, Eldon & Dennis & also several OK stations Glen, Butch, John & Ed..Thank you all. lot's of storms over old Lake Erie tonight so that means lot's of QRN for us on shore. Glad to see such a great turnout on 40 meters & great to see several members in the 12000 series with their T's. 73's & see everyone next month.

Had loads of fun. Played on 40M which was pretty good in MD tonight. Tried to work some of the weaker stations that were calling me and I hope I did not offend other stations trying to call me. It's all good. Hope to see you all again soon. Thanks to my friends at SKCC for the contacts. Best of 73 Steve



N1DN Operated by: Phil

Just prior to the Sprint, I upgrade SKCCLogger and set the program options to work with my Flex 3000 and PowerSDR. Works like a charm! Thanks Ron, AC2C for a great logger. I had a nice run on 40 meters for about 30 minutes. Thanks to all for your calls! Some ?automated wide band digital activity took over the frequency, so I took the opportunity to watch a Bobby Flay grilling show on fish tacos. I came back just before the end and enjoyed the 'rush' near the top of the hour with S&P QSOs with W4KRN and K2DEP. I enjoyed meeting several new members on the air tonight. Thanks for your SKCC NRs: Dale K3SEN, Louis WB9YJE, Foster WF4O, and James KC0JKD. At the close of a nice evening, I had 13 QSOs and a new recipe for Mahi Mahi fish tacos!



KK4VAU Operated by: Anthony

This was my first SKS. It was lots of fun.



W6FPS Operated by: Ron

Did you ever have one of those moments when your fingers wouldn't do what your brain was thinking? Sorry Ed W7GVE, that's what happened.
Twenty and Forty meter bands were lively tonight. Had a good time despite computer problems. Has anyone else had a problem updating their membership data base?
73, Ron



W5KDM Operated by: Noel

It was good band conditions here for the first time in weeks. In other words, I can not blame QRN for this one!




KJ4RGH Operated by: Chris

I've participated in a few WES, but this was my first SKS. I had a great time! Operated QRP outside with an Elecraft K1 at 5 watts into a random wire up 20ft. 40 was crowded, but 20 wasn't as bad and seemed to have decent conditions. Thanks to LZ/K4GM for pulling out my QRP signal all the way in Bulgaria!



AA6AC Operated by: Bob

Fast two hours. Started on 15m for first hour. QSY to 20m for second hour hunt/pick worked okay. Conditions Good. Ten QSO's between two bands. NO stations
outside USA. Herd Belize but he was close to K6ELQ same city as me. TNX all.
AA6AC Bob CA 6276T NEVER herd N4RAY.



WD5ABC Operated by: Kerry

Thanks for listening for my 5W peanut whistle, tonight I used my Flex 3000 into a dipole at 25 ft and Czech military key. I'd have made more contacts but it took longer than I thought for this color-blind guy to make up a CAT 5 cable...

73 and thanks for another great sprint!
Kerry, WD5ABC




N5JPX Operated by: Jim

Icom 7410 @ 100 watts to my 80 meter loop and Vibroplex straight key. SKCC sprints are always fun and this one was no exception. Thanks for the contacts and a big thanks to the organizers who put these things together. 73, Jim




K6ELQ Operated by: Tony

Had a great time as usual. 20 meters was open and 40 meters doesn't usually open until after these sprints until the winter months so I locked my VFO and stayed on one 20 meter frequency for the entire sprint and therefore didn't get a chance to hunt down Rodney for the bonus. Thank you for the contacts and hope to see you next month.



W7GVE Operated by: Ed

It is nice to be back on---my hearing is slightly better --- sure a lot of very
noisy condx on 40 so was on 20 mostly--- sure good to hear all the guys Ive wrkd for years now.73 ED..//W7GVE



N8KR Operated by: Ken

My first SKS. I had a blast!



KF5PFU Operated by: Ryan

First full sprint in quite a long time! Was able to introduce someone to CW who had never seen it in action before!



KF7DS Operated by: Don

20m began strong but faded by 6:30pm and I followed W7GVE/Ed over to 40m. 40m was pretty good but just getting warmed up on the West Coast. Until WES, 73, Don KF7DS



KC9W Operated by: Randy

WASTED TOO MUCH TIME ON TWENTY METERS. FORTY SEEMED LIKE THE PLACE TO BE. ONCE AGAIN HARD FOR A QRP STATION TO HOLD A FREQUENCY BUT ONLY HAD TO MOVE ONCE. GLAD I FOUND RODNEY THE BONUS STATION. AS TIME GOES BY ITS SO MUCH FUN TO WORK SO MANY FAMILIAR FRIENDS LIKE BILL WA4FAT AND BRIAN N4API AND OF COURSE RODNEY N4RAY. SEEMS LIKE I JUST GOT INTO THE RHYTHM OF THE SS AND THE FLAG DROPPED AND TIME WAS UP. ANOTHER FUN TWO HOURS.



W1LIC Operated by: Wes

My first SKS in quite a while. I usually work only the WES. Split my time between 20 and 40, and 20 had quieter conditions here. Worked the bonus station N4RAY on 40. Made more progress towards my S with 85 more contacts to go now. Used my regular TS-480SAT at 100w to Hustler mobile antenna and my Vibroplex straight key.



KA2KGP Operated by: Tom

Only worked the first 45 minutes of the sprint, all on 20m. The band was in good shape here in WNY.



KA5TJS Operated by: Allen

Only had a short time to play but I had fun. All 4 contacts were on 40 meters. FT-817 at 5 watts and 80 meter dipole. CUL.

AH6AX Operated by: Larry

Ony had 30 minutes to "play", but enjoyed it.



KB8J Operated by: Tom

Took down my G5RV and put up a Windom 80 through 6 meters. It seems more quiet than the G5RV and picks up more signals. Think I'll stay with it.



VE5SG Operated by: Garry

Decided to work as a portable this time. Set up in a local school yard with 2 wire antennas. Ended up using a 40 meter OCF for all contacts. Most contacts were on 20 meters. KX3 with a Nye Viking Master Key. Left the sprint early for take down, which ended in the dark anyway. 73, Garry




WA5AFD Operated by: Gerald

Lot's of activity on 20 and 40 meters here and lots of good signals. Used standby rig TS-520 and vertical antenna. Thanks to all. 73 and look forward to the next one.

Nice to hear all the signals pounding out SKS...a local net at 7:30 requires my
attention on Tuesdays but still managed to catch some great signals...
The pix shows my latest addition..the Kent SK-1 that I found on Ebay last week.
Nice feel and easy to adjust....Randy N4RAY had lots of stations calling ..

K6ELQ had the big signal of the night in SE IN and provided me with my only QSO. KB1OIQ, not sure what happened with our QSO. I think we heard each other a couple of times, but I never got a good confirmation from you that our QSO was complete. Catch you next time! 73
