KJ4LEN Operated by: Ray

2 contacts on 20m and 1 on 40m. I ran my Kenwood TS130V at 4W into a fan dipole at 40 ft. I used my circa 1979 Radio Shack straight key. See everyone next time. Ray

Mainly just S&P jumping around the bands. Always a fun event.

K3 100 watts, tribander and wires, Navy FlameProof Key



WD5ABC Operated by: Kerry

I had a little excitement, the piece of brass tubing I use to slow down my bug came off and I went from 16wpm to about 35 for a second. I made sure it was in place securely then continued so I apologize to K1NV for the strange fist. I only had a few minutes but it was fun as always! Next time I'll make sure the brass tube is on the end of the bug properly before I get started.



WA2JSG Operated by: Curt

Nice sprint. Got my old IC-706 from the closet and ran 50 watts to my Butternut Vertical (elevated). Key was my big ole English Kent Straight Key.
Really good to hear and work my old buddy Dennis WD9DWE after a long absence. Also heard W1AW with a SKCC number (nice), but didn't work them. Did manage to contact PS7HD in Brazil.
See y'all next month!

KB4QQJ Operated by: Randy

Bands were loud tonight. Strong signals from everybody, and it seemed no one was having a problem hearing me, even over the digital signal that jumped in the mix for a while. Nice Surprise was working a new to me DX station.
Thanks Nathan, PS7HD. Strongest signal was W4HAY out of TN at 40 over.
Heard an old friend, WD9DWE Dennis. That was great to hear you back on the air om.
Special Thanks to Dave, KI6BHB for keeping the SKS going. Since I retired I don't get to play as often as I use to, go figure, but always a pleasure Dave, Thank You.

Ant = doublet at 33 feet
Key = newly acquired Hi-Mound Deluxe 803

73 for now,

KLUW Operated by: Russ

20m was in pretty good shape but because of a storm system running from Kansas, thru Missouri, 40m was very noisy. It was difficult to hear the QRP stations. Had a good time.

Good conditions in PA. Ken K7IFG in OR was my single 15 meter contact. Thanks Gerald WA5AFD in OK on 20 meters, I don't often get "UR BOOMING!" remarks with the Century 21...that made my day! 40 meters was a bit crowded for my filters, but OH and WI are always reliable, thanks Gene and Jack. Nothing on 10 or 80 meters, but a great night for radio!

Great time using the J-38 I bought back in '53 for a buck. 15 and 20 were great, QRN on 40 brutal, and 80 useless here.



W7GVE Operated by: Ed

Great fun as always-- I went to 40 with 30 mins to go hoping to catch a CA stn--it was a mass of noise, so I went back to 20 and immediately worked 2 CA stnshi hi--- Nice turnout it seems as tho the level of operators is getting better and better--- Great to see the outlaws..

I was using my new KX3, battery operated, QRP at 5W, Indoor endfed antenna at six feet off the floor. It was about like having one hand tied behind your back while you box an octopus! However it was more fun.



W4CUX Operated by: Bill

Only worked about half the sprint, but had a great time. I used my PFR3 QRP rig for the entire sprint. This time I used all of my active keys. Vibroplex Blue Racer, Vibroplex Cootie, Vibroplex Original, Western Electric mini-key, Army Signal Crop J5-A, Navy Flameproof, and J38. At least 1 QSO with each key, but hands down my favorite key is the Blue Racer. Looking forward to the WES.



VE3FUJ Operated by: Brion

40 was good at this Qth so I stuck there as usual. Thank to all I contacted. BRION # 4936T



K1NV Operated by: Jon

The bands seem a little more cooperative this time of year and I was able to spend a fruitful hour in the Sprint this evening. 10M seemed to be open, but no SKCCers were heard there. I worked W4HAY in TN on 15M, then moved to 20M for the balance of the Sprint. I heard others working CA stations, but didn't hear any on the bands I was on. That may be a "first."

A good cross-section of North America was heard and worked from AJ4SB in FL to N1WPU in ME plus a few strong western stations like W7OM (WA), W7CQW (ID), and KF7JL (MT). VE5SG and VE7KBN boomed in from the north for additional multipliers. The upper and lower midwest were well-represented, too.

It was nice to work WD5ABC (SKCC #12) and WB0CLL (SKCC #9600) on both ends of the SKCC roster. Sally, KE7FDD (#9698) from this QTH, wasn't quite ready to try her new Vibroplex straight key; maybe next month.



W9SAY Operated by: Chas

Wx wasn't cooperating here in Belleville. Here's how it looked at 0000Z. I managed to squeeze in a few QSOs between 0110 and 0145. Under a lightning show that rivaled 4th of July fireworks, I took Shakespeare's advice; "The better part of valor is discretion", and called it an evening.




KE3O Operated by: Bill

Had a good time again but have come to believe that I listen too much and work too little. Will continue to improve my score each month. Tnx to those who worked me.

Vry 73's, Bill, KE3O

My favorite handkey



NG7Z Operated by: Paul

Great activity this evening. Had a slow period between 0100 and 0120 as usual waiting for 40M to open. A nice surprise was working Nat PS7HD on 20M and 40M. Thanks Nat! Worked all the usual suspects. Highest number worked was Ed W9EFW #9355. 73 and see you in the WES later this month. Paul NG7Z

VE5CUL Operated by: Brian

I thought I would try this SKS with my Heathkit HW-8. It was a fun challenge and many thanks to Rod,W7OM and Paul,NG7Z for hearing my 3 watts in very busy conditions. Sorry I missed others who I called and couldn't make the QSO.
Until next time. 73 - Brian




KF7DS Operated by: Don

10m was great early, 20 was solid and died at 6:30PM and I should have moved to 40m sooner.

Best Don KF7DS



KB1NHV Operated by: Art

Only worked a few but heard lots of activity. 40 was quite noisy.



KD2JC Operated by: Joe

Spent about an hour and a half on this one. 20 meters was the band. 40 was noisy here but still workable. Thanks to all and 73.



K1LEE Operated by: Lee

Only got on for about an hour, but had a good time, as usual. Broadcast interference on 40 seemed to be heavier this time. But cw gets thru! Vy 73 to all.



PS7HD Operated by: Nathan

Grande SKS, acho que fui melhor nesse evento, 40m realmente estava difcil, agradeo a todos com quem tive QSO, em especial ao Mark KO1U e Paul NG7Z que me escutaram em 20 e 40m, TKS, nesse SKS pude acrescentar 9 NW NR SKCC para minha aplicao TRIBUNE, FB. FT897D 60W G5RV e DIPOLE K112(Sig.Elec.Co. key) Nathan PS7HD #8094C

WX4RM Operated by: Ron

High noise levels on 40 and 20 tonite. Very long skip, worked West Coast stations which is usually difficult for me. Fun Sprint !



KA2KGP Operated by: Tom

Another nice SKS Sprint, as 20m. was open well into the sprint and 40m. was good. 80m. had heavy QRN from approaching rain storms & was unusable. 73



KB1UOH Operated by: Charlie

Tnx to all.



K8JD Operated by: John

Spent the first 90 minutes on 40M woth many QSOs and then tried 80M until the end with no replies to my CQ SKS calls. Had a good mix of older and newer numbers logged.



KE5YUM Operated by: Terry

Since 15 was open in my part of the US, I tried to make contact there. No joy. I went to 40 but heard no one, which was very strange. Perhaps bands conditions were not so good. Anyway, I will try again next month. All the best, Terry KE5YUM



K1PUB Operated by: Chas

Havn't done an SKS for a while, it was fun. Spent too much time milking 20M, would have done better if I had moved to 40M earlier. Lesson learned. Looked at 80M, no activity.





W3NP Operated by: Dave

Started out on 20 as usual. Heard some nice signals and worked 11 stations there. Left 20 for 40 when conditions started to slip. 40 was a bit noisy, but a lot of very strong signals, even a lot of the other QRP guys were pounding in. I didn't try 80 but would have if the bell hadn't sounded when working my last station, Ted K4UFT.

Rig for this event was the Elecraft K2-10 at 4 to 5 watts. Antennas were the KLM-34A @ 50' on 20 and my 130' CF Zepp up at 45' on 40 and fed with 600 ohm open wire and a Viking KW Matchbox. My key was the 1915 Vibroplex bug.

I enjoyed every minute of the sprint. 72 de Dave, W3NP #3182T

KE5SBZ Operated by: Ed

Enjoyed all. Thanks to all who operated.



K5BZH Operated by: Jim

Got home late from a family outing. I managed less than an hour. Thanks to all for being there.



WABGV Operated by: Slim


A few of the brass pounding Outlaws from Missouri



N3PDT Operated by: Doug

After the first hour, I though I was going to break my own record. 20m was great and heard a lot of stations. KP4SJ, Pablo was as loud as I've ever heard him on 20m. But, by the second hour everyone deserted 20m and I had a tough time on 40m.

Was a lot of fun, got a few new to me calls, and a lot of old friends. Thanks to all, I my apologies to the ones I couldn't pull out, especially on 40m.

**resubmitted to correct Tribune and Centurion count



W7CQW Operated by: Quint

20 mtrs open into Idaho for entire sprint. Enjoyed working the newer guys and also the familiar calls worked in sprints as well as K3Y/4 and most recently K3Y/7. Put up a Carolina Windom at 80 ft. makes a big difference! See you in the Next sprint and stay tuned for the K3Y challenge in Jan 2013!!



K5ENA Operated by: John

Worked all my contacts on 20M. Enjoyed it.





N8ECC Operated by: Alan

There were alot of BIG signals here in Ohio. Couldn't operate the full 2 hours, just on and off. However, I did get to break in my new blue racer vibroplex. For the first time, the Les Logan was off to the side watching, hi hi. Had a great time, as usual, cu during the WES.

73



VA2FDT Operated by: Szabi

Just when I thought I was out... they pull me back in! :)
First QSOs after 18 years of silence with my new callsign (ex: HA5CIU).
It was fun, ~3w with an improvised (< 1h) wire ant in the attic. See you during the next events! 73/72!



NUMP Operated by: Bill

We had storms pretty much overhead. I operated for the first hour, hearing mostly local and stronger stations due to strong QRN. In the second hour the lightning was just to close. Didn't want to let the smoke out of the rig so I pulled the big plug and unhooked the attennas. 73 all and cu on the next one...Bill N0UMP




KII Operated by: Mark

Lots of QRN as storms moved over. Had to QRT for half the sprint, but made a few QSO`s inspite of very high noise level. Even 6meters had qrn! Hope for better condx for the next event. 73 Mark KI0I



WSZV Operated by: Eldon

Monster thunderstorms right over the house. Guess I will have to wait for next month.



N2JNZ Operated by: George

Had fun but 40 didn't seem very productive .... used the Electro Bug which needs some fine tuning ... QRP was rough here but still had fun !!!




KKEX Operated by: Rick

With less than an hour to operate the first minutes were spent on 20 S & P, then CQ on 15 was also good, WD0ECO off the back of the beam...welcome to K7IFG Ken & W0INS Tom TU for the new numbers. The good conditions produced great contacts...
Thanks to all for the nice time...73 Rick "Mo outlaw gang"



K2DEP Operated by: Steve

Spent the first 40 Minutes just trying to get any contacts on 40M then switched to 10 Meters, got 1 and then went back to 40M. Very crowded condx and could not hear many of the regular stations. Propagation was pretty poor for me.



W4IO Operated by: Dan

I only worked about 1:10 of the sprint. Had to go early, but had a great time.



K3TM Operated by: Roger

I heard no activity on 80M again this month! Next month?



KA1XC Operated by: John

15M was alive, needed more activity, 73!



KB4DXV Operated by: Jim

Very enjoyable as always and thanks to those nice enough to work me QRS! 73 Jim
