From Thomas M0TRN/P, SKCC #7344C

I was only able to operate portable QRP for a couple of hours in the morning. Rig was FT-817ND running 5W into a short wire, only 5 meters long! No DX worked although I did hear a few US stations, but I worked 3 EU stations: Jirka OK5NN, Erkki OH7QR, and in a lucky surprise Fabian DJ1YFK who switched from paddles to bug and gave me his SKCC number when I told him I was taking part in the WES!

Most of my contacts this morning were non-SKCC though, but still amazing what 5W into a short bit of wire can do - even managed to work Tunisia on SSB!

M0TRN/P's soapbox image


From Danny K9KHJ, SKCC #7179

Maybe not the best weekend to try just one watt. Did a lot of calling and heard a lot of 'sri' but still had fun. Pulled the plug early to get ready for a busy week.

From JIM W1RO/7, SKCC #1379

Fun WES. Shutdown when the lightning arrived.

From Tony W4FOA, SKCC #641T

Thanks for the Q's. Fun, as always.

From CHAS W9SAY, SKCC #1158T

Beautiful WX. Baseball, football, car show and WES. Time management & multitasking works but has a down side.

From nate W4NA, SKCC #5262T

had a ball despite poor condx and family time hey theres always next time

From Werner N8BB, SKCC #5433T

Too many things going on but had to get a few in. Dean had a big signal into Michigan. Great job by everybody. See you all in the next sprint.

From Joe KD2JC, SKCC #710T

Very nice Sprint. Bands were active with less noise. Some signals on 20 were copyable even down to S2. Nice to see non Cs and Ts active. 73

From Len W1LVT, SKCC #3932T

Had good times. 40 meters was great! Should have spent more time on the air, but it was one of the last beautiful summer days before fall and couldn't resist going outside.

W1LVT's soapbox image


From Edward N7EDK, SKCC #7534

Well,only got to work 4 hours this afternoon on the WES ! And only got 2 ordinary members this time, too many C and T members !

But that's OK, had fun for the short time I had, did put the Elecraft K2 to work at 1 watt, did good I thought. This K2 was built by our own WC7S, Dale up in WY ! Worked well Dale, thanks again ! See you all next month....Ed


From Paul NG7Z, SKCC #802T

Got on for a few hours this weekend. Great turn out of non C or T members. Glad to see them on. One thing that would improve rate is sending your exchange element only once. If a repeat is needed then I ask for one. This is especially true when you get a good RST. 73 and see you in the SKS later this month. I'll be the bonus station. 73 Paul NG7Z

From Doug N3PDT, SKCC #6861T

Wasn't able to get in the shack until almost 20:00, but still made a decent numbers of contacts. Got a lot of new-to-me numbers and was able to work a number of "the regulars" too. Stuck to 20m and 40m, dealt with a lot of deep QSB, but had a GREAT time as usual.

I've only been a ham for less than two years, but SKCC has been the most fun, and the nicest bunch of ops I've run into. Thanks to all.


From Dan KC5GXL, SKCC #647C

Well I missed most of the WES this time around, only to be on the final minutes. Only had 2 QSOs, but I guess that is better than one! Hi Hi!

Maybe next month will be better for me! Well, nix that. Next month I will not be on the air at all. I will be at a Santa Claus convention south of Ft Worth.

73, es tnx fer the T guys. Only need 5 more now!, Dan


From JOHN K5ENA, SKCC #3045T

Made contacts on 80, 40, and 20M.

From Eldon W0SZV, SKCC #4999T

Had some time this month and had a ball. few 160 &80. rest on 20 &40 looking forward to next month

From Ray KJ4LEN, SKCC #6956T

Had to work Sat and Sun so only had a couple hours to sprint. It was a blast as usual. Picked up some new numbers. See every one in the next one. Ray

From Mitch WD0ECO, SKCC #6893T

Conditions were pretty good on Saturday night but not so good on Sunday and didn''t hear many stations.

I enjoyed working SKCC #1, KC9ECI, for the first time. Also was surprised to work EA3NO off the back of the beam. Also nice to get ZL2BLQ on two bands.

Only worked Slim (WA0BGV 2 Bands) and Mark (KI0I) from the Missouri Outlaws.

And usually I work Ed, W7GVE, right off but got him a little later on Saturday night. And always nice to work Bert, F6HKA.

K3 100 Watts, dipole and 3 element Yagi, and Begali Spark.


From Jack KK0I, SKCC #2370T

Limited operating time this weekend. Bands not all that good...but still made a few contacts. Thanks for being out there. Catch you next event. 73, jack

From Alan KA5VZG, SKCC #6264T

Good WES, lots of activity. Thunderstorms shut me down, but still a lot of fun, as always. Last QSO was Lluis, EA3NO, digging my 5w out, :-)

From ED W7GVE, SKCC #729T

I sure do enjoy these sprints--- I am getting to old for the

high speed contests-- I was glad to catch Brian- K7TKT up in the ID mountains on 40 at the end--- Also I1EIS was a nice surprise.... Lets get even more folks in this


From Curt WA2JSG, SKCC #3018T

Saturday night at the drag races in Englishtown NJ, and church activities Sunday took a bite out of my WES time, so not many contacts. Rig IC-703, 5 watts to a vertical, 12v battery. Bencher RJ1 straight key.

From Ron KB1UMH, SKCC #8085

Thanks everyone for a nice event!

From Lee K1LEE, SKCC #7246

Weekend Sprintathons and Tuesday Sprints are lots of fun - not the tension and bad operating manners in some other contests. There seems to be an increase in cw on all ham bands at "reasonable" speeds and I think SKCC is largely responsible. Happy to be a part of it all!

From Randy KX1NH, SKCC #1050T

Fun sprint. I was still putting up a wire at the new QTH 10 minutes before the start. Hope to have some higher antennas next time. CU next time.

Randy KX1NH 1050T


From Jerry KD5JHE, SKCC #1976T

Missed out Saturday night due to power supply problems. Back at it on Sunday and made a few qso's. 20m seemed poor for me, 40m sounded good at the end. Loads of fun. Tnx for the Q's, 73

From Gene KL7GLL, SKCC #1098T

Limited time, but a lot of fun. Propagation was poor for a lot of this WES and had to really struggle for contacts.

From Russ WA0YEI, SKCC #6300T

Had fun but no time! Oh well, enjoyed it as usual. Thanks to all!

From Mark W5PJW, SKCC #58T

A high A Index didn't help. Also, the first weekend with temps below 100 degrees in 3 months so spent a lot of time outside and doing other things. IC751 / J38 throughout. 73, Mark

From Pete W1PNS, SKCC #4853T

Reminds me of the children's story, "Ping the Duck." But fun for the hour or so I could operate today.

From BILL K6KQV, SKCC #2626T

Really poor daytime conditions.

Hope the Fall and Winter months are better.


From Joe WS9E, SKCC #3859C

I used the old Omni V, dipole and speed-x key. Not much time with most of the weekend taken up by a motorcycle trip. See everyone next time.

From Ken N5LYJ, SKCC #6969T

Great operators, lousy conditions....fun as usual...N5LYJ 6969t

From Dennis W8VN, SKCC #3141

Not much time to operate. The weather was just too nice outside! Still fun though.

From Dean NW2K, SKCC #7330T

90W, matchbox, 80M loop at 30 feet. 20M was short but good and 80M was very quiet here. My apologies to F8GFA for too many mistakes. 15 C, 93 T, 51 non C/T, unique. Thanks to all for a great time! See you next month.

From Jeff K9JP, SKCC #3008T

Had a lot of fun during this WES! Thanks to all who copied my QRP signal. May God continue to help and comfort those who loss so much September 11, 2001 Sincerely, Jeff - K9JP 3008T

From John K8JD, SKCC #1395T

Busy with other things for the first 14 hours of the event. Hope to do better next month.

From George K9SKC, SKCC #2836T

Had a great time but conditions wernt good ... Had a heck of a time Saturday nite getting the bug to work. Dirty contacts and just couldnt seem to send worth a damn. Worked lots of old friends like Jeff , K9JP , Tony W4FOA , Drew AF2Z and more !!! Also Rick , K0KEX running 3 watts !!! Rig here a Flex 1500 , 5 watts to a ZeroFive 40 meter vertical and the Vibroplex 100th Anniversary Bug ... Thanks to Randy KC9KHG for a FB job and allowing me to use the club call. WE MUST NEVER FORGET 9/11 ........

From Brian AC0US, SKCC #7734

My first WES and I ended up with a Marathon QSO to boot! It's obvious this is a popular event with very heavy QRM around the calling freqs. The bands cooperated for the most part.

This was also my first voyage into contesting of any sort... I think I'll be sticking more to rag chewing.

73

Brian - AC0US


From Bill N0UMP, SKCC #659T

Another fine sprint. Thanks to all.

IC-746, homebrew key and I don't know what that big lolly pop thing is? The tuner is there for the use of its internal balun for the window line on one of my antennas. 73 everyone and cu on the next one if not sooner...Bill

From Wayne W4CJV, SKCC #7043C

Great idea for a sprint. I only had 1 "ordinary" member, SKCC #1, and that made my day. Started out QRP with my station on my deck. Had to relocate once the neighbors started up the 2-stroke trimmers and finished QRO. Looking forward to the next one.

From Ric KA3LOC, SKCC #660T

WES

From Kerry WD5ABC, SKCC #12

I didn't have a lot of time to work the WES, had to work, but at least I gave out a few "ordinary member" points!

From Steve W3OKC, SKCC #7186T

Again hard to spend the time I would like but managed to get a few sessions in. Thanks to all who participated and God Bless.

Steve


From Slim WA0BGV, SKCC #5465T

Bands up and down here. Worked some of my MO friends N0UMP, KI0I, W0DE, WD0ECO. Also worked Wes (KC9TNH) in the WES. My friend (N0UMP) Bill' initials are WES. Sooo.... had a nice WES weekend.

73 de Slim


From Tony KM4BJ, SKCC #7942

This was my first WES and with the visit of the 5 year old grandson and lots of yard work, I only could catch minutes at the rig. Only worked 4 stations but they were all T's and one DX so I am on my way. I will make as many SKS and WES as I can find time for from now on.

From Bill W4CUX, SKCC #5497T

Another great event. I was only able to work a few hours Sunday morning, but 40m was great while it lasted. Looking forward to next event.

73, Bill - W4CUX


From Mark K3MSB, SKCC #5965T

Not a lot of time this weekend, but had fun on 40 and 20M.

From Kieth W0IS, SKCC #2048T

This week has been real fun with POTA in Glacier NP and then a little time today on the WES. Between unpacking, doing laundry and small odd jobs there was time to make a few q's. Thanks to everyone that I was able to work during a few short shifts. 73, Kieth wi0s 2048t

From Stan ZL2BLQ, SKCC #4356T

These trying conditions sure make you work for it Tnx to those that called in.....de Stan in NZ

From Jim NV9X, SKCC #1358T

Did not play much on Sunday. Still fun as always. Some new ones.

From BRION VE3FUJ, SKCC #4936T

This sprint I had a very high noise floor it covered the band from abt 7030 to 7070 40 Khz of the best part, there were some lulls lasting anywhere from 30sec to 2 min. It wasn't evident Saturday Night but all my time Sunday. Despite of it I thought I did pretty good, I certainly enjoyed Saturday evening. See you all next month. Brion

From Randy K4INC, SKCC #3702

RIG = K2/10

ANT= PAR EndFedz 80 and 20/40 dial band

KEY = Navy Flameproof and recently acquired Lionel J-36 bug.

Had fun running my club call to give out the extra bonus points. Lot of new calls this time.

Strongest signal was KA8OLU at 40 over. That is as high as the K2 goes.

Great to work my old friend Walt, LW3EX with his new home-brewed bug/SS. Awesome Walt!!

Last call of the event in the final seconds was Bill, NT9K. Always a pleasure to work. Good to hear you Bill, great signal into NC. Got to make contact with George on two bands. Thanks George

Got to work several members on three bands so conditions weren't too bad this time.

An awful lot of people tuning on the FREQ they are about to work. I hope they soon learn better. I missed a nice contact with KF7ATL because of someone desperately trying to tune. Better get that antenna fixed if it takes that long to tune... hi hi

73 for now,

Randy_K4INC/KB4QQJ


From Dave W3NP, SKCC #3182T

Not much time to spend, technical issues with my portable set-up on the back screened in porch and the NA noise on Sat eve caused me to end up with a lot less actual on the air time, and my response to call ratio was much lower than usual - will have to check that coax run from the porch to garage to basement to entry point in the main shack. I ran at 5 watts using a Ten Tec Argosy II running off of a battery pack. I used my new Vibroplex 100th anniversary edition bug that my xyl got me for my birthday this past Monday. Antennas were the usual home qth aerials. Has storms move through on Sunday afternoon. 73, Dave

From Bob K5ZOL, SKCC #3945T

had more time this time and really enjoyed it.

From Noel W5KDM, SKCC #4812

The band conditions here in Mississippi were not very good. Regardless there were a number of great signals. Thanks to all who gave me a contact.

From Dennis N0UYN, SKCC #5753T

Conditions late Sunday seemed to seesaw between 20 and 40. The Sprint theme brought out a good number of Ordinary Average stations. Worked my first 8K numbered station, Randy WB4SPB. Thanks to all and 73.

From Tom KC9RXI, SKCC #7428

This was my first SKCC contest

From Rob N5RDN, SKCC #406

Conditions ruff here but still had fun. 73/Rob

From JIM K5BZH, SKCC #447

YF, Carol, WD5DCZ, was in BSA Hospital recovering from gallbladder surgery, didn't have a lot of time to play in the SKCC sandbox. Made 27 Qs. Found 40 meters had a high noise level (S3-S7) during most of the event. When 20 was open it was the preferred band. Worked 7 stations that weren't Cs or Ts. Worked 3 that were Cs, worked 17 (15 unique) that were Ts.

From Brian K7TKT, SKCC #6695

It's all down hill from here...

View from the top of Hawley Mountain (DN13XX) where I started the WES. This is the highest point, 360 degrees, for miles around. Once I put up my antenna, it became the highest point (and sitting nearby, the top of my head was the 2nd highest point...). Thunderstorms forced me off the mountain several times Saturday night. I finished the WES Sunday from a safer place.

I had a great time as an 'ordinary' member. Thrilled to work Stan in New Zealand and Walt in Argentina along with lots of stateside members. Thanks all. 73, Brian

I was active for some hours during this WES, but this time it was not successful. Signals were very weak at my end.

Still, I did work a new SKCC No for the centurion list.

From John G0RDO, SKCC #2133T

Wow ! Conditions really poor here. Struggled to get just the 6 QSO's. Good fun though.

I only got to get on for this the last couple of hours. I about fell out of my chair when ZL2BLQ answered by CQ-WES on 15M. Hope to have more time for next months WES. Bert, K6CSL

From Larry K0LWV, SKCC #3571

WB8AFB, Keith, FL, Had a big 1 Watt signal. Met a new local SKCC member N3PBT,MO. Condx were fairly good but I had a noise level and couldn't hear some of the stations calling me.

From Art WB8ENE, SKCC #3773T

I'm not sure what "ordinary members" means. Didn't have a lot of time to operate this sprint since I attended the hamfest in Findlay. Hopefully, I'll have more time to operate the next one. 73, Art.

From Butch KD5RSS, SKCC #1910T

Conditions could have been better, but still a very good WES. I always enjoy it and challenge myself to top my last score. A standing "O" to all.

From Bernard F5DE, SKCC #6247T

A bit tired, coming back in the evening from meeting our son in the city of Bordeaux, I found a few time to have twelve QSO with SKCC friends just before going to bed.

The two "ordinary members" worked were new numbers for me, an additional pleasure !

I hope to do a higher result next month.

Awaiting for that, I hope to meet you all soon for Brag contacts when à the radio shack (generally 20:00 to 22:00 UTC).

73 from one of your french friends !

This was my first WES. I have never been a contester in the past, however I really, really enjoyed this contest! I believe it is because the SKCC is such a great group of members! I was only able to dedicate about 4 hours to this sprint, but it was a lot of fun! I cannot wait until the next one!

From Wayne KI4UYA, SKCC #4372

With bad band conditions and this being my first time to log a sprint, not too bad for a tin can and string...HI HI

From Finn WB2UWU, SKCC #1708

On Saturday night my QRP was unable to get through the NA contest QRM. I was busy in the yard all day Sunday, but managed to squeeze in 3 QSOs in 45 minutes. Unfortunately for my score, they were all Ts. 73 Finn

From tom W4TMW, SKCC #6184T

As my score indicates, I only worked this WES, on 40M, for a very short time, but it was fun anyway. I used my homebrew "paddle bug" as pictured here along with Elecraft K2/100, CL/OCFD @50'.

Blessings,

73

From Neal KA1SAW, SKCC #2824T

Very POOR conditions here in MA. But we managed to work a few stations.I wish the bands had been a little bit better.

Until the next WES.


From Phil KB0ETU, SKCC #4542T

Two impressions: The bands were not at their peak; there didn't seem to be as many participants. Was using a K-2 with 5 watts into a G5RV that is partially on the ground thanks to a tornado that spun off of the storm Lee as it passed through. Looking forward to the SKS later this month. 72/73, Phil

From JOHN K4BAI, SKCC #3280

FT1000MP, Alpha 78, 1 KW, TH6DXX, dipole. 40M seemed good with good activity around 7050 and 7114. 20M seemed poor most of the time except to the northeast. I had a lot of power line noise with the antenna pointed NW. Several European stations called in. Thanks for all QSOs. See you next month. 73, John, K4BAI.

From Bert W5ZR, SKCC #2931T

Solar flares and poor conditions again; but great fun. It was a busy weekend and had to squeeze in a little operating along with the family duties. Thanks to all who worked me.

Thanks everybody and see you in next sprint. 73 Bert


From Walt LW3EX, SKCC #3804T

Despite radio blackouts with bad prop on HF it was a fun event as usual. QSO stats: 10 on 14MHz - 6 on 21MHz - 14 on 28MHz.

Got only one EU stn F6HKA, TU Bert. Glad to meet Bill NT9K with FB sig on 10m, Randy running RC call K4INC, W5ZR Bert the strongest sig heard as well as many other friends.

Many thanks to all, looking forward to the next...

From Wes W1LIC, SKCC #1142T

Not many contacts due to poor conditions. Just don't enjoy operating when it is so noisy. Four of my ten contacts were members I haven't worked before. I always like working them for the first time.

From Ron AC2C, SKCC #2748T

Even with the multiple passing Thunderstorms, I got in much more time that I had planned for. A very good WES and a fun time for the weekend.

From Hank KC3QU, SKCC #4567T

Tropical Storm LEE took my G5RV down and the jury rigged 25 vertical was dismal failure but at least I made an appearance. Really enjoy these mponthly workouts. 73 de Hank 4567T

From Joerg DL9YCS, SKCC #7150T

Very bad condx but lots of fun !!

See you next WES

From Rob AC4RM, SKCC #7512T

I think the Scoring change was a grand idea and hoped it created more activity. Had limited time to devote. Band seemd to be changing rapidly. Running 2.8 watts and ground mounted vertical. Thanks again to all who were able to dig my signal out.

From Mark KI0I, SKCC #6585T

Not a lot of time this wes,still had fun with the sprint tho..Bands seemed a little flat to my qth,some of the scores beg to differ 73 CUL Mark KI0I

From Ted K4UFT, SKCC #4289T

Bands were almost completely dead here in Upstate SC on Sunday. All stations heard were very weak. 4 QSOs all day. Just before the WES window closed at 2000 EDT 40 began to get stronger. Still fun as usual.

IC-7000 @50 Watts to end-fed random wire. Ameco key.

From Wes KC9TNH, SKCC #7968

Off/on thru wknd; had a blast as usual. Able to add 2 more states worked. There were some good signals out there; even got to hear a good self-inflicted pileup on 20m Sun AM. All inside my filter together, so many QRZ?'s going on I didn't dare touch the Vibroplex I was laughin' so hard. Reminded me of an old comedy routine: "who dat who say who dat when I say who dat?" hihi 1/2 QSOs on 40m, rest split between 80m & 20m. 73 :)

From Reg KA0RJY, SKCC #4100T

Glad to have worked all the stations that I had time for.

Summer is a busy time. I am looking forward to things slowing down for the fall and winter.


From SCOTT W5ESE, SKCC #688T

Conditions were poor. Apparently, there was a minor geomagnetic storm. I used my Novice key (now called an Ameco K4) and Ten-Tec Omni VI. I also submitted my log to the ARRL's 'Logbook of the World'.

From Erkki OH7QR, SKCC #6379C

Many thanks for the QSOs. Conditions not good this time. See u in the next WES. 73 de Erkki

From JERRY W9GFB, SKCC #8056

Great fun with new K3. Lots of buttons to figure out

From Bob KK5J, SKCC #6947T

Propagation on 15 and 20 meters was not the best, but 40 was great here in OK. Nice to work G4LMW for the first time as well as Walt, LW3EX, Bernard, F5DE, and of course Bert, F6HKA, again! Also good to hear so many familiar US OPs and a lot of good fists. Enjoyed as always. Look forward to next month for another WES.

From James K4AOA, SKCC #8333

Unfortunately I could not figure out how to send log. Enjoyed first experience

From GREG K7SDW, SKCC #6224T

Almost forgot to get my scores in.. 20m was busy enough for what time I had, so only one band this time. Great fun! B CU all agn. 73 de Greg

From Dave NE5DL, SKCC #5081T

Fun WES again but didn''t spend a lot of time. Tried out my SOTA setup in the backyard. K2 5W, Cebik designed Inverted U on a heavy duty 30ft fiber glass pole, Bushwacker cootie with temps in the mid 90s. Antenna does its job. Worked F6HKA thanks to his good ears. First WES for not working W9DLN....Dan what happened?

From Rick K0KEX, SKCC #5220T

A late start due to storms but timing is everything, George K9SKC-N2JNZ/QRP was my first 40M Q TU George. A switch to 20M I found Stan ZL2BLQ and a few others. The conditions not great but LW3EX was good on 10M, nice BUG Walt. Several other nice Q's including KE6OIO & K7ZG new numbers here. Also a nice chat with non-member KA7PUN. Another WES in the log, thanks to all for the fun....CU all soon 73

From mike W7DRA, SKCC #1891

worked 6 tribunes and one centurion, equipment too many rigs to mention, shown is the 80m station, arc5 vfo, af67 keyed exciter, 3x805s in parallel, 600 watts to full wave inverted L

From Peter AK3X, SKCC #7217T

First chance to give out my brand new T... K9SKC (George, N2JNZ) was first to get it. Had only a few minutes over the course of the sprint. Lots of C's, T's, but just one regular member. Had fun as usual anyway.

73 til next time... Peter
