From Bill N5RKD, SKCC #7176T

Tough going this time out. Lots of storm activity at beginning so late start and lots of QRN. EU contest was tough to compete against also. Got steamrolled many times by QRO contest stations. Operating etiquette overall seems poorer --- perhaps we need to set better example in SKCC? Same set-up as always --- 100W to 42 foot vertical (no HOA complaints so far) and '62 Blue Racer. Thanks all for QSOs. Bill / N5RKD

From Phil KB0ETU, SKCC #4542T

Used the ZR SKCC Sprinter log for the first time. Sure makes things a lot easier. Bands were good to start, but the last six hours, the bands seemed to have died. Either that or most everyone quit. Anyway, another fun sprint. Made one more contact than last month. Hope to hear you all again soon. 72/73, Phil

From Neal KA1SAW, SKCC #2824T

First WES in some time. Good to get back in the hunt again. " HAD FUN " THANKS GUYS.

From Tony W4FOA, SKCC #641T

Bands were in very good shape, especially 20 meters during the first couple of hours of the event. Great to work newcomer John, HP1VWW. The WAE gang made it tough at times with some very poor and careless operating techniques by some of the BIG guns (read excessive powered club stations). Oh well, it is what it is. An observation, I didn't work a single NJ or PA station and only one "4 lander".

From Andy KB1OIQ, SKCC #6265T

I made my very first contact to ZL during this sprint!! Thanks, ZL2BLQ, for the 579 report. Despite the QRN on Sunday, this was a fun sprint and I made a high number of contacts (for me, at least). I contacted several people for the first time. It was nice to meet you! Have a lot of fun, 73 de Andy.

From Steve W3OKC, SKCC #7186T

Hav'nt been participated for awhile been busy. At first was going to quite because of the qrn from storms passing but decided to give it a go. Sorry if I did'nt copy you but static was horrific on my end. Thanks to all and God Bless.

From Bob KK5J, SKCC #6947T

Enjoyed the WES as always. Propagation could have been better, but good ops were able to pull my signal out when the QSB was heavy. Thanks to all.

From Emil WD4SCZ, SKCC #556T

40 seemed like the most productive band. Had no luck on 10 and little on 15. Still worked a lot of new stations to me. Was a pretty good time.

From Art KB1NHV, SKCC #2775

Each time I work one of these, it get more enjoyable. Had lots of competition from Worked All Europe & MD QSO party. Only worked 20&40 meters. Heard lots of CW on 15 but no SKCC.

From Dave KI6BHB, SKCC #4186C

15 meters was open from about 1800 to 2200Z. Got 15 Qs there! Thanks all for the fun and VY 73,

Dave KI6BHB


From Edward N7EDK, SKCC #7534

Another fun WES behind us, worked most of the day today ! The morning was my best, mid afternoon got real slow, then picked up a few more station late in the day.

Did really well I thought for only 1 watt this time, the little Elecraft KX1 came thru again, I really love that little radio, it's my favorite !! One contact on 40 meters, the rest on 20.

Fun day overall, I'm amazed at what one watt will do, the antenna was a G5RV JR. only up about 25 feet. Thanks again to all my contacts, and we'll see everyone next month !!

72/73 de Ed in Marana,AZ.


From ED W7GVE, SKCC #729T

Below average band condx but still great fun

From Curt WA2JSG, SKCC #3018T

Rig: Icom IC-703 5w to a vertical using 12v battery. Bencher RJ-1 Straight Key. Nice event as always.

From Steve N2JDQ, SKCC #3756

My 1st time competing .. sure was a doosie! Hand keyed ALL CQ's and of course the exchanges too. Flat prop on 15, 20m was ok on Sat night, but fairly slow Sun Morning. Like most of the contests/events I run, 40 was my money band. Worked Thomas M0TRN within the last 3 minutes on 40m, amongst some brutal QRM ( other contest ). Rig: Kenwood TS-940S @ 100w Antennas: 80m INV L(1/4wl), 40m flat top 1/2 Wave Dipole @ 45 ish feet, 20m Inverted V/80m INVL, 15m 40m Dipole .. only tried 10m for a total of abt 5 minutes, I did not want to waste too much time up there, not 1 signal was heard.

Thank you all for the contacts and the repeats when necessary..I apoligise in advance for my bad ears on 20m, I think the radio has some issues there. 73.. I will have to do this again sometime!

From Slim WA0BGV, SKCC #5465T

Condx not good at my qth for most of the time and too much outside work to do. Great fun while it lasted (not the outside work). Roof leaks but not raining so I didn't do that work. hi hi

Here is pic of some of my MO SKCC friends. 73 de Slim

From VERN W9HLY, SKCC #6672T

Hi band were open mostly because of WAE. I'll take it. Several new ones for me. Not a great amount of time to spend. Fun!

From TJ W0EA, SKCC #4593T

Did not go too crazy this one but was glad to have some fun no less! Great weather outside so I didn't want to spend too much time by the radio. Was a nice relaxing weekend for me. Ran my K2 at 5w to a doublet fed with 300 Ohm twinlead and my EF Johnson/Speed-X bug for all QSOs. Hopefully people aren't scared off by my higher speed CQs, if you need QRS just send at a speed you can copy, I'll slow down! :D See you all next month! 73

From Ted AB8FJ, SKCC #62C

Ten-Tec Argonaut II at 5 watts to the end-fed random wire antenna. Key used was my Bencher RJ-2. Very enjoyable WES.

From Jim K6JF, SKCC #4261T

20m productive well into Saturday evening, but Sunday morning/afternoon bands stunk as they have past couple months, thus only 22 QSOs. I hope better condx return soon.

From George N2AUR, SKCC #5841T

40 was good on Saturday night, but I had an S9 noise level on Sunday. Fortunately 20 & 15 were better.

This month I used my McElroy Presentation straight key.

From Randy KB4QQJ, SKCC #3508T

Only got to play the last 33 minutes today but had a good time. Seems like everything coming from Pacific NW and mid west. No CA stations heard this time. Looked for Paul but no joy. Great to hear NT9K, that was a treat and best surprise was Thomas, M0TRN answering my cq!! Thanks Thomas, great signal!

Rig= K2

Antenna= PAR EndFedz

Pwr= 3-5 watts


From Frank W2XYZ, SKCC #4862

Bands sounded great on this end--no QRN. Plenty of stations on the air to work, unfortunately I couldn't give as much time to the event as I wanted.

From George N2JNZ, SKCC #2836T

Many thanks to all who heard me !!! Running 1 watt rom a Norcal 40a to the ZeroFive 40 meter vertical. Special thanks to Milt , K4OSO who stuck with me to get the contact !! Nice to work Randy , KC9KHG and Werner , N8BB/QRPp and Dean NW2K WITH A 599 + 20db signal !! Nice to have Delaware answer my CQ with Frank , N3RSD at the key !! Had fun doing the Worked All Europe test at the same time with 1 watt also. 10 DXCC countries worked on 40 meters !!! Thanks all !!!!

From Alan WA1AR, SKCC #4079T

From Mike W5EHM, SKCC #6304T

Lots of fun again! Thanks to W5ZR for the Sprint Logger, wonderful program! Also, thanks to those that put this WES together and lastly, thanks to the members!

73, Mike


From Randy KC9KHG, SKCC #3687T

I want to thank Thomas for being the special DX member and Larry for being K9SKC for this WES. I hope everyone had fun...73!

From Dean NW2K, SKCC #7330T

Thunderstorms kept me QRT for quite awhile on Saturday night and Sunday afternoon. 80M was in good shape but not alot of participants. 20M was tough with WAE and QRP. Thanks to all and see you next time. 5W, matchbox, 80M loop at 30 feet.

From John K8JD, SKCC #1395T

Had a few hours saturday night and sunday mid morning to operate this weekend. Most contacts were on 40 but my new extended double Zepp over the driveway helped me get an unusual number of 20M reports !

73 to all.


From Joe WS9E, SKCC #3859C

Great weather up here in Wisconsin, so we had a motorcycle weekend with a little radio mixed in. I got on a little on Saturday evening and again on Sunday afternoon. Only 40 and 20 seemed active. I did manage one QSO on 15 with Rick, N4RE.

I worked several new (to me) Tribunes and Centurions. I now have just one more contact to go for the Tribune designation.

See you next time.


From Mike AC0PR, SKCC #7033T

Only on the first two hours or so. Fun as always. CW rocks and is undoubtedly the best thing on radio!

From FRED KB0LF, SKCC #6302T

Enjoyable as usual. Thanks to all who were patient with my fist. Nice to have the QRN relatively low in Nebraka. See you in Sept.

From Len W1LVT, SKCC #3932T

Lots of fun despite a lot of breaks for passing thunderstorms, shopping, naps, etc. Used the old Lllaves key (photo) for a bit but stayed mostly with the McElroy Stream key. Will really concentrate on getting more air time on the next WES!

W1LVT's soapbox image


From Russ WA0YEI, SKCC #6300T

Didn't have a lot of air time but made a grand total of 6 contacts!! Even snagged a couple off of 15M.

Signals weren't too good here... maybe its the 100+ deg wx we've been having for the last 3 months HI HI. I know it's cooking my goose!

Thanks all

From Ray KJ4LEN, SKCC #6956T

Spent most of the time on 20M. Too much qrn on 40. I made 1 qso on 80M and and worked Bert(F6HKA) on 15M. Had fun as always. Ray

From Mark W5PJW, SKCC #58T

First WES with new call. Stumbled a few times almost sending the old one. Conditions rough Sunday. Lots of noise. 73, Mark

Another fun WES. No time at all on Saturday evening, but did get some radio time off and on on Sunday. Bands seemed to be in decent shape. Keys this time were a Signal Electric spark key and a 1956 original bug.

From Pete W1PNS, SKCC #4853T

20 and 40 were hopping Saturday night from where I was pounding brass. Many thanks to all for the contacts!

From Stan ZL2BLQ, SKCC #4356T

Called many stations that did not hear me, However tnx to those that reached down this way, roll on for better conditions 73...Stan

From Matt N3EIN, SKCC #6742T

Well, we were thankful for the rain in Pennsylvania and at times the bands were rather good. I worked 20 meters fairly evenly to all points, a few exchanges on 40 meters, and Bert (FRA) was my only 15 meter QSO...but then, I’m starting to think that if I shouted out the back door, I might hear Bert answer me from the across the fields. I had a good time.

Another fun WES. Thanks to those who make it possible.

From Ed KE3HL, SKCC #8124

Only was able to participate for less than an hour on 40M but had a ball!

From Andy VE7LAJ, SKCC #6611T

Had fun as usual. Thanks to all who had the patience to work me and an especially big thank you to all the organizers who make SKCC possible! 73,

Great bunch of operators...very enjoyable to belong...TU Ken N5LYJ 6969t

From Carl N5XE, SKCC #6307T

40 and 20 meters were the workhorse bands for me during this event. I tried 15-M, but only made a few QSO's. Didn't hear anyone on 10-M. Had fun as always. Many thanks to all that participated. N5XE

From Bert K6CSL, SKCC #4486

This was fun. I think it may the most I've worked so far in a WES. I worked these in between my searches for contacts in the Worked All Europe CW Contest. Bert, K6CSL

From JERRY W9GFB, SKCC #8056

First WES! Great Fun!

From Jim NV9X, SKCC #1358T

Fun as always. Always look forward to it. Thanks to all my contacts. My apologies to ones I could not hear. Thanks to F6HKA for 3 bands. Thanks to K0LWV for K9SKC contact. Thanks to SKCC and K2RFP Sprint Logger for making WES possible.

From Ken AD5QB, SKCC #9C

Lots of signals heard, thanks to those who pulled out my weak signal from my attic dipole. Surprised I could work F6HKA with such a poor antenna (Thanks Bert, you had a huge signal here in TX the last hour. How much power do they allow you guys over there? ;-) ). Hope to be able to play in next month's sprint as well.

From BILL K6KQV, SKCC #2626T

Good WES in spite of poor daytime conditions.

Tnx to all who made it happen.

From Dan KC5GXL, SKCC #647C

Lots of fun. 1st time to use my C in a sprint! All my contacts were on 40 meters this time. Only need 15 more to get my T!!!

From Alan KA5VZG, SKCC #6264T

Worked both bonus stations, stumbling on both. M0TRN was a new one for me. Good to hear all the new (SKCC) operators on the air. Again, lots of fun.

From Greg WA1VIL, SKCC #443T

This was an in and out WES for me-half an hour here and there and the WX here made for a lot of QRN. Certainly worth the time and as always a lot of fun! Thanks to all who pulled out my 5 watt signal and especially to Bert for OSOs on 15 and 20. I really appreciate the work of all those who make these events happen!

From mark KI0I, SKCC #6585T

another sprint in the logs and a pretty good one here,sat. nite was a little noisy with storm qrn and WAE contesters but we always seem to find the gaps to fill in.Sun morning came in a with a little better condx.A family reunion called me out for the midday then back at the old flamepruf.Thanks to so many of the earlier members who are coming around again to have some straight key fun !! Hope to be in the next sks and cu there 73 Mark KI0I

From Bob K5ZOL, SKCC #3945T

Great participation.....Wish I could have spent more time

From JOHN K4BAI, SKCC #3280

FT1000MP, Alpha 78, 1 KW, TH6DXX, dipole, zepp, inverted vee. Band conditions 80 through 15 were fair. Worked F6HKA on 20 and EA3NO on 15. No signals heard on 10M. thanks for all QSOs. 73, John, K4BAI.

From Richard K4KRW, SKCC #1576

Trying out my new Wilderness Radio Sierra (3 watts and a Windom at 30 feet). It was nice having multiple bands (had just 40 meters previously). Bert (F6HKA) gave me my first DX contact on the new radio - Thanks! I finished my 15 meter band module on Sunday hoping I would hear something on that band. I heard Bert but could not get back to him. Later, I reached him on 20 meters. I think this is the first weekend sprint I've participated in. I had a great time. Thanks!

From Jim K5BZH, SKCC #447

1/3 of my 51 valid QSOs were in 3 states: CA (6), TX (6), AL (5). 2 QSOs on 15, 26 on 20, 23 on 40. Worked 2 states on 15, 17 on 20 meters, and 15 on 40 meters for a total of 22 states. Had 2 dupes that I removed, sri Dean, NW2K and Emil, WD4SCZ, paper logging stinks.

From Lluis EA3NO, SKCC #6653T

Poor conditions, severe stormes and mni qrn, On this occasion very difficult, with problems also with the contest.. hi

I apologize to everyone for not being able to answer those who called me.

From Bernard F5DE, SKCC #6247T

Five hours activity made another pleasant event.

Bonus station (M0TRN) for three bands,

one new SKCC country with HP1VWW and two new members with W1LVT,

N8BB (900 mW) was very easily down the log, also NW2K with his 5 Watts rig.

A real pleasure to be there one more time !

73 to all and see you for next SKSE and WES events !

Bernard.


From John G0RDO, SKCC #2133T

Enjoyable as always, but few stations heard outside Europe from my QTH. Used an Eddystone bug key for 95% of the time.

From Werner N8BB, SKCC #5433T

Another fun event that I look forward too each month. 40 meters was not as open as usual but picked up a few there.

Worked Bert and Bernard as usual on my 900mw and also got M0TRN for a first. Thanks to all the others for their fine listening skills, always a pleasure to work the regulars and even meet some new ones along the way.


From martin IK2RMZ, SKCC #5278T

Nice WES. I didn't believe it could work but I was surprised how many stns got thru. Strange enough, the strongest stn was from California. A Louisiana station seemed to have polar flutter on it. East coast stations were weaker than usual.

A qso attempt with Serbia failed - no skip, just backscatter.

73 to all


From Bill NT9K, SKCC #1926T

Just a few contacts in the WES again this time. Nice to find Randy KB4QQJ, just before the end! What little time I was able to play, the bands seemed pretty bad from FL. My new little toy didn't help motivate me as much as I hoped it would, maybe next month? 73 Bill NT9K..

From Enric EA3VN, SKCC #7933

No time to play because family fiel day, so only two qso's but still great fun. Thanks !

From Jack KK0I, SKCC #2370T

It was a busy weekend, but managed to catch a few with my new (used) Elecraft K1 using an old McElroy P500 bug (thanks Tony...it's been getting a lot of use). Thanks for the contacts folks and your ears. It was a good way to break in the K1. See you next event.

From SCOTT W5ESE, SKCC #688T

An all-40M effort this month. Good conditions and activity. Will submit my log to the ARRL's 'Logbook of the World'.

From tom W4TMW, SKCC #6184T

Great WES. I used mainly 20M since condx seemed pretty good and the QRN on 40M made for rough sledding. Station was Elecraft K2/100, 3 el Yagi, both home brew st key and homebrew magnetic bug (not a paddle).

73 Tom


From BRION VE3FUJ, SKCC #4936T

It was a bit of a slow start Saturday night, but picked up nicely. Sunday morning started out good, I knocked off early for lunch to get a few chores done so I would have the whole afternoon.------- It was not to be, lunch was barely finished when T & L started rolling through the Countryside, and never stopped til after supper time, very little rain fell at that, hardly measuring in the rain gauge. Hope I have better luck next time. Brion

From Art WB8ENE, SKCC #3773T

I was in and out of the shack all day Sunday due to prior commitments. Used my 102' ladder line fed doublet for all contacts except for F6HKA. The vertical on the roof worked better for that one. Thanks to all, and hope to see you again in the next sprint. 73, Art

From Bill W4CUX, SKCC #5497T

Only worked a few hours on Sat nite, but had a great time. Looking forward to next event.

73 - Bill


From Art KA5DWI, SKCC #6907

Just handing out points. Better than expected conditions on 40 Meters and once again lousy conditions above. 10 and 6 Meters was open off and on, but no activity. It was nice to work an ol' friend, Jim K5BZH.

From Dan W9DLN, SKCC #3635T

Log is being reviewed so I may change the numbers. Also used the ZR Sprinter (1.14) this weekend for the first time. It is a nice easy program to run. Good job Bert! Unfortunately the program tells me I had 61 s/p/b but according to my calculations I only worked 57 so something isn't right.

From Finn WB2UWU, SKCC #1708

Lots of "test" QRM, but a good time was had by all anyway.

From Rick K0KEX, SKCC #5220T

Saturday was busy with meetings and a hanger dance at the KC Airline History museum. The weather was great, band condx Sunday not so good..almost made a Q with Thomas M0TRN but no joy. Did manage a Q with Jirka OK5NN & Bill KA8VIT/W8COD on the USS COD. Thanks to everyone for another fun event.

FYI: the Connie G crew did an engine run, always brings thrills everyone. 73 Rick

From Larry K0LWV, SKCC #3571

I had a blast using the club call sign K9SKC. My rig IC-718 @ 100W to a 20 mtr Vee Beam up 40 FT or a 3 el collinear array, both wire antennas. The bands I used were 20 and 40 and had no luck with the other bands.

Please ops use the proper procedure, the station that has been using a frequency and calling CQ has frequency, don't jump in there and steal their spot by calling CQ or calling the station he just finnished with. Find your own spot and don't hesitate to spred out.

I heard F6HKA on 20 but he couldn't pull me through and I heard John K4BAI on 15 but he didn't hear me.

I called CQ a few times on 7.114 mhz but no takers.

I would like to do this again in the future.

Contest crush was causing QRM, could work only two members from EU (OH5FNI and F6HKA). Got 5 numbers towards my tribune award, 9 more still needed. 73 de Erkki 6379C

From Joe W1HFF, SKCC #6309

Not too many strong sigs here but had fun anyway, as usual. Thanks to all.

From Jeff W8JRA, SKCC #4757T

Worked WES off and on using my Ten-Tec R4020 QRP rig powered by 8 D cells. Heaviest part of my station was the SKCC Pro Pump key. Antenna was an all-band doublet up 30'. Was able to QSO all but one station that I called. Thanks to everyone who put up with my weak signal, especially Noel K8NB in Michigan who gave me an honest 229 report!

From Dave W3NP, SKCC #3182T

I experienced a mixed bag of condx this weekend here in WV. The dx contest on 20 was probably the worst negative (contests always are), followed by the QRN from the nearby storms. On the plus side, 40 meters was in relatively good shape (good qrpp sigs from N8BB & N2JNZ), and I was able to make a few Q's on 15 with my last contact being with F6HKA on that band just before shutting down and grounding at 2200 hrs as the thunder was getting louder. I did work Ray KJ4LEN on 40, 20 and 15. I used my Ten Tec Omni 7 at just under 5 watts. Antennas were the 130' CF Zepp @45' and the KLM KT-34A at 50'. Keys used were the Vibroplex Army J-36 from 1941 (my new favorite bug - very smooth and light at slower speeds with the Vari-speed) and the German WW2 Telefunken straight key. Thanks for all the QSO's! 73, Dave

From Dennis N0UYN, SKCC #5753T

Limited operating time for the Sprint. I worked Tom K4ZGB and Ed W7GVE on 2 bands, 20 and 40. Good QRP signal here from Dave W3NP. The strongest signal I heard was Gordon N6WK near the end of the Sprint. Thanks and 73 to all.

From Ci Jones WU7R, SKCC #22T

Only could operate for a short time, but good to be here

From Ken VE7KBN, SKCC #5533T

Thanks again to the folks who put this on. And thanks

also to those stns who dug my signal out of all the

other QRM and QRN that was around.

Very enjoyable.


From CHAS W9SAY, SKCC #1158T

Fun time again. Lowest member number worked was 14, highest was 8137. Used ZR Sprinter for the first time. Kudos & thanks Bert.

From Thomas M0TRN, SKCC #7344

Since I had the honour of being the Special Bonus Station I wanted to make an effort in this sprint, so I had planned to operate for almost a full 12 hours from 12:00-23:59 GMT. Unfortunately my Inverted V wire antennas had partly fallen, and when I realized this, I had to spend a few hours on erecting a replacement. I think it worked out well though and I ended up with better 20m sensitivity than before!

Working Werner N8BB's 900mw (339) across the Atlantic was a real treat, as was working Randy KB4QQJ's QRP station who came out loud and clear at an impressive 559 here. Hardest copy of the day was Dan W9DLN at 229, closely followed by Bernard F5DE at 329 on 20m, (he was 599 on 40m and 579 on 80m though - a bit short for the 20m skip).

A very noisy 40m band made operating there a bit of a headache, but after almost giving up I managed to work Steve N2JDQ there at the very tail end of the sprint, persistence paid off, we'd tried several frequencies with no joy!

Although I do enjoy using bugs, especially my "Ron's Red Racer" by G3YUH, I stuck with a single straight key throughout this WES - my most beautiful key by far, a Marconi PS213A freelance version by artisan keymaker G0NVT (pictured). As my CW skills have progressed I appreciate its perfection more and more, I don't think I will ever find a better straight key.

Thanks everyone for a fantastic sprint, and thanks Randy for the honour of being the Special Bonus Station!

From Peter AK3X, SKCC #7217C

Stuck to 40M for this WES. My 20 meter rig is the ultimate QRPppp rig

with zero watts out!.. Have the parts but so far not the time to fix it.

40M was fun, and I made lots of progress towards the "T", in fact I hope to have it for the next WES. Rig was DSW-40 at 3 watts to my inverted vee at maybe 28', fed with speaker wire thru my ZM-2 tuner. See you all next month, 73 Peter


From Cecil K5YQF, SKCC #1820T

Pretty good conditions here - other than other contesters. I finally caught NM leaving HI and SD for my WAS. Another highlight was EA3NO on 15 meters QRP.

Wow! They are right if you don't use it you loose it. Been a while since I had the rig on.. Boy am I rusty! However, a pleasant surprise to work OH5FNI in Finland as my second SKCC QSO. Didn't work that many stations, but still a good time.

Icom 7000, 75W to 20' end-fed wire. Ameco straight key.


From Wes KC9TNH, SKCC #7968

Personal theme was to contact as many diff states as possible. Worked out, even with band day noise, EU speedsters and the phone on 7055 in the morning. Had a blast & met some nice ops. Those included some nice gents who shepherded my efforts around 7114 back when... QSOs all 40 & 20, although FTR I did make some calls from 80 to 6. Was nice to catch N6WK literally with 5 min left. Had a blast, probably 'cause I don't treat it as a contest but great ear training & working thru different stuff. :D

From Butch KD5RSS, SKCC #1910T

Conditions were "yuk" but any QSO is still a QSO, I will endeavor to persevere. Thanks to all efforts, 73!

From Jerry KD5JHE, SKCC #1976T

Navy Flameproof and my 64 Vibroplex Original B4 cleaning,it was a gift from WB5VYH. Was in storage many years.

The bands not so favorable to me this go round. Had to work Sunday, so not much time on the air. Worked a few new calls (to me). High point was working AE5VB, Hugh, on 20m, we been trying to do that for some time and he had a big signal this time. Thanks for the Q'S folks. 73

This month was awesome! I more than doubled my previous scores, and I worked 33 station in the first 3 hours of operation! Propagation was spectacular too, and I enjoyed hearing many of the usual suspects on air. Good job everyone! See you next month!

From Alex PA1FOX, SKCC #NONE

So, this was my first WES. It was a lot of experience and a lot of fun, although I had some problems with the amount of WAE contest stations. Key was the home made sideswiper I have been using since a few weeks.

Limited operating time, as usual, but lots of participation. I heard some really nice fists too! TKS & 73

From Mike VE3WMB, SKCC #120C

Nice to work some familiar calls. My participation was very casual as usual. This time I used a very nice Vibroplex Original Deluxe Bug that once belonged to Andy, VA3TEE (SK). I never knew Andy but I understand that he was a very active CW contester and DX-er. I had this bug hooked up to my CPO playing around with a HB tamer and decided to hook it up to the Rig and use it when the WES start time came around. 73 Michael VE3WMB / VA2NB

From John KA1XC, SKCC #5188T

It was good to get on and make a few contacts, I've been busy this summer with the new house and haven't been QRV much. I was going to try 80M first but it was blasted with QRN from local storms, so went to 40M instead. Used Icom 756P3, Inverted V, & the J38. 73!

From Kerry WD5ABC, SKCC #12

I didn't have a lot of time to spend on the WES this time but wanted to try out the new Flex 3000 with my old J-37, it worked fine. It was nice to run across Bert, F6HKA on 15m without even using the spotting page!

From John N9OL, SKCC #4014T

From Red W3RT, SKCC #3237T

I had submitted my minimal score last nite after getting home from work, all tired and such. So, this morning, I found some q's that I had overlooked. Sorry to be a bother!

Again, thanks for the activity and the stations that I did manage to exchange info with, albeit a short amount of operating on my part. (Very busy here).

Take care, hope to be able to submit via the SprintLogger next time. (Still having problems with it!)
