KG9HM Operated by: Steve

Bottom dropped out of 20 meters around 0100 around here. Still a good time as always. To WU1V and K7SDW: Sorry we didn't get to complete the QSO! 5 Watts from an MF9020 into a dipole in the attic up about 30 feet.



W4HAY Operated by: Frank

First SKCC event with the new dipoles. Everything worked FB & had a great time.



KK5NA Operated by: Joe

Only had a short time to get on tonight...just one contact during the SKS



N3PDT Operated by: Doug

Good condx for SKS here tonight, especially on 20m. Didn't move to 40m until 01:30z. Lots of good signals, and lots of weak ones. Low noise helped me pull a lot of them out, too. Only got 2 fellow Outlaws, WA0BGV and K2HT. Thanks gentlemen, and hope to see you in Joplin for another group photo.

Thanks to all for yet another fun SKS.



N8ECC Operated by: Alan

After missing the WES, was excited about SKS. Met alot of new ops and had a great time, again. 40 meters seemed to be the happenin' place. Most of the QSO's there, 1 on 80 and a few on 20. My trusty old Les Logan Speed-x Model 501 bug was the key of choice. CU next one.



KCM Operated by: Larry

Hope everyone enjoyed the evening as much as I. 20 meters was in great shape. 73 Larry



W5ZR Operated by: Bert

Got in late, did last 20 minutes.



WRCUX Operated by: Bill

Another fine Sprint. Generally good band conditions. As usual I did best on 40m. I operated with my PFR3 QRP rig from my porch this evening. Very nice evening. Looking forward to next event.
73, Bill - W4CUX



WA2JSG Operated by: Curt

Nice sprint. Good to work my ole buddy Cliff KU4GW, as I usually don't catch him in the sprints much. My rig was an IC-7200 75w to a Butternut vertical (my only HF antenna at this time). See y'all next month!




KBETU Operated by: Phil

Improved over last month! Thanks guys. Lots of stations from Maryland heard
tonight. Lots of fun anyway - K-2, 5 watts to dipole up 40 feet. Hope to work
you all in the WES next month. 72/73 Phil



K5JYD Operated by: Larry

That was fun , just my second sprint.



W4IO Operated by: Dan

It went by too fast. Lots of fun tonight.



K2HT Operated by: Dick

Built a ZS6BKW antenna used the sprint to test new antenna. Heard couple of stations on 10 meters at start of sprint but could not pull them out of the mud.
QRN wasn't a problem during this sprint. Nice to hear K0WIU from South Dakota, Thanks for all the QSO's. C U next sprint.



WIS Operated by: Kieth

Was late getting started and worked 80/40 meters. Bands were both very good but with considerable qrn. Got 5 Outlaws with Mitch having a very strong signal on 80 and Slim on 40. Eldon was QRP and also very strong and loud on 40. Bring on the cold clear nights, I am getting the urge for some top banding. Good to hear Russ K0LUW again. As always it was a great time and worked calls I hadn't heard in a long time. 73



K7CHS Operated by: Rick

WOW that was some bad QRN on 20 and 40 here in AZ at my QTH anyway. Was fun as always and thanks to all I contacted.

I tried to use my 90 ft dipole on 20 but XYL said I was changing channels and volume on the big screen HDTV ! Stuck with the N/S halfwave dipole ! Gotta get that big antenna moved away from the house !

WABGV Operated by: Slim

Lots of activity here at my station (Icom 7000 - Navy Flameproof - Dipole on 20 and 40. No big hurry but kept busy most of the time.
Worked my fellow MO Outlaws Mark KI0I/M (whatch doin in' Kansas?) N3PDT Doug long haul on 20 meters I guess (abt 30 miles distant) - W0DE Stu up the road a short distance - and K2HT Dick in Wellsville all the way across the state. Glad to work you Dick.
Spent all but a few mintutes at the end on 20 neters.

KU4GW Operated by: Cliff

I had a great time tonight! I found much less QRN on 40 meters so only made 2 QSOs on 20 meters before switching over to 40 for the remainder of the Sprint. This is the first time I've actually felt good at sprint time in quiet a while.
I was so thankful that I felt well this time and got to participate. Wound up with 24 QSOs total which is pretty good for me! Hope everyone else enjoyed themselves as much as I did tonight! I sure am looking forward to fall of the year when all the thunderstorms are gone and the QRN with them! Very 73 de Cliff KU4GW SKCC#652

KLUW Operated by: Russ

Only got in for the last 20 minutes of the sprint because of other engagements. Had a good time.



K5BZH Operated by: Jim

Ran IC7000 at 80 watts into 14AVQ ground mounted vertical. Heard several new participants, apparently they couldn't near me and not much of anyone else. Sort of like I was driving a dummy load, but I was hearing folks. Adding acid to the wounds it appears that Brad, N5LUL, did much better than me.



NUMP Operated by: Bill

Another great sprint and lots of activity. I worked 20, 40, 80. I did try the top band with no luck. Thanks to everyone. 73 and cul....Bill OUTLAW.



NY4G Operated by: Ariel

W4CUX Operated by: Bill

Another fine Sprint. Generally good band conditions. As usual I did best on 40m. I operated with my PFR3 QRP rig from my porch this evening. Very nice evening. Looking forward to next event.
73, Bill - W4CUX




N5LUL Operated by: Brad

1st time in a long time that I have played for more than an hour in the sprint sandbox. Had a great time!




W5YDM Operated by: Bob

FT-950 and 7-band fan dipole @ 22ft. This is my 2nd SKCC sprint but the first one where I stayed the duration. I wasn't sure where to look for contestants so I hung out on the 052's. After a few contacts, I noticed that my swr was 2.5 on 40m, where it is usually 1.4, so I had to take an inspection break where I discovered that the 80/40/20 legs had wrapped around each other in a previous storm. I unwrapped them with a 20 ft collapsible painter pole and was back in the game after losing only 15 minutes.



N2JNZ Operated by: George

Ran the K1 at 1 watt and worked the Sprint for about 45 mins. ... 3 from OH and SC and MO ... used the GHD mini key ... good fun !!!!




K7IFG Operated by: Ken

Much fun this time around. Thought there would be more stations on 15. W4HAY was
my only Q on 15 the rest were 20 meters. Listen on 40 a bit and 80 hearing some
weak ones. Next month will try more 40/80. 73 de Ken



NG7Z Operated by: Paul

Got on for the last half hour and cq'd on 20M. A nice surprise was working Nat PS7HD. Also worked Mike just around the corner here in Woodinville. I'll have to invite him to our DX club picnic this Saturday. Thanks for the Q's 73 Paul



W7GVE Operated by: Ed

I had a great start 29 contacts in the first hour, but then the rate slowed--Great sigs from the Outlaws as usual--- Just as this ended I had a big
lightning strike --- I wasnt even aware that a storm was approaching--- it turned out to be good timing and I had a good time/// 73 ED-W7GVE



VE5SG Operated by: Garry

Worked as a portable for this SKS. Location was the top of a hill in a local park.
Lovely view of the sunset which happened during the sprint.
Rig is a FT-897 at 20 watts using the internal batteries. Antenna was a mini dipole at 15 feet. It worked much better when about half way through the sprint I pushed the button on the tuner!
It was very nice to work Kala, KH6G.




K5TEB Operated by: Terry

First time to submit a score. Had some PawPaw duties to perform and got started late. Only one qso but that's still more than none. 73 de k5teb,Terry.

Good sprint

KD2JC Operated by: Joe

Started off nice, but bands got noisy here. Still a nice way to spend a few hours. Thanks to all and 73.



KKI Operated by: Jack

Another nice sprint. Got in a little late as the kids and grandkids took me out for my 60th birthday. Stayed on 40 meters the whole time. Thanks for all the contacts folks! 73 and C U AGN...jack



WU1V Operated by: Rick

My first sprint as a Tribune. Had a great time, met some previous contacts.

Thought I heard a VE5 faintly but couldn't pull in his call. Would have been my only DX. Most contacts were east of the Mississippi but I contacted all 3 west coast states plus AZ (thanks Ed!).

Band conditions were good on 20 meters where I was operating. But I didn't hear any European callsigns or other overseas stations. Maybe next time.

73, Rick



KA2KGP Operated by: Tom

Another nice SKS. The bands cooperated, even 80m. was in good shape.
Rig: TenTec Argosy II at 50w. into a 5 band dipole up 25 feet, straight key.



W3NP Operated by: Dave

I spent the first half of the sprint on 20 and when the stations thinned out (and after I worked W7GVE - HI!) went to 40. There was a thunderstorm going on very close by and I probably should have shut down but didn't - the cool breeze and smell of the rain coming in the window was very pleasant. Surprisingly QRN wasn't that bad. 40 was good for QRP ops and I had more 599 sig reports than usual.
I brought my Elecraft K2-10 up (gave the TT Eagle a rest)and used my Vibroplex Anniversary Model bug. 20 meter antenna was my tribander @ 50' and the 40 meter antenna was the 130' long CF zepp @45' and fed with 600 ohm open wire line.
It was a very enjoyable sprint. 72 from West Virginia

N8BB Operated by: Werner

Only got on the last 15 minutes of the sprint, doing to many other things and almost forgot. Thanks again for all the contacts on 1 watt, again I worked everyone that I heard and it was great. Even worked a few new SKCC members.



W9CC Operated by: Larry

I worked several new stations this time, great! Hope you all come back and join the fun.



K2DEP Operated by: Steve

This one was tough. Could not get my Mini G5RV to tune up around 7050 with my LDG autotuner, but was able to tune up on 7114 where I planted myself. Tnx to all those who responded. As usual, a lot fun but a tired sending arm. See you next time around and I think I am going to try my ICOM 703 for QRP. K2DEP

KII Operated by: Mark

Will try again ,computer dumped two tries last nite to submit score.
Threw a mobile setup together and made a raid into Kansas.No one was watching the border so got in and out with no skirmish. The icom 706 and a mag mounted hamstick was wrking great on 20m and 40m . Worked WA to MA and FL to SK, what a blast! Sitting in a parking lot just into KS on 68 hwy I was pounding away when I heard a roaring sound that sent chills up the spine .After a couple more I realized I was at a BIG CAT sanctuary with Siberian tigers and I don`t know what else! I rolled up the passenger window on the Honda civic and kept on p-pounding t-the b-brass hihi. Thanks all who made my mobile raid into Kansas so much fun.

KK5J Operated by: Bob

Another nice sprint. Got in late but managed a few Qso's. Some very strong signals on 20 meters from the northern states. Look forward to the next one.



KD5RSS Operated by: Butch

Late start, sorry, I had forgot, but still enjoyed the few QSO's I gathered.



K7SDW Operated by: Greg

Tnx Ted, K8AQM, for telling me to stick around for SKS. Had a lot to do that evening, dog grooming, and other chores.. so brushed off the key and went after all I could on 20m. Sorry Steve, KG9HM, I think you got my report, but you were covered up and did not get your exchange. Only 2 qso's on 40m at the end, but the dinner, door, phone... usual nighmare anytime one gets on the rig! Had fun.. Amp in repair, so only 100w this time. When I get it back I'll as to be a bonus station so the East cost folks will look for CA's hi hi. 73 all till next time.



N4RE Operated by: Rick

It's been quite a while since I participated in an SKS. Band conditions were great and it was good to hear old friends and so many new SKCC members.

NP3CW Operated by: Julio

Due to a phone call of a friend outside of my country was not able to start the Sprint until 00:55 UTC. Started CQing in 80 mtr and 40 mtrs but no anwser Went to 30 mtrs and made 2 contacts.

Then went to 20 mtrs and made 13 more QSO's.
Worked 9 States, 1 DX for Multis. Only 2 "Centurions and 3 "Tribunes"

It seems to me that tropical storm Isaac was not benefical to propagation
in Caribbean today.

Good luck to all. Not to many states or DX were present tonite.
I was looking for DE and ND but they did not showed.
