Soapbox


From Art KB1NHV, SKCC #2775

Was nice to see 10 meters wide open. Worked 15 states on 4 bands. Very enjoyable.

From Randy KX1NH, SKCC #1050T

Great condx on 10. Lost my antenna in last snow storm so made a 40m zepp from 100 feet of TV Twinlead. Cut 1 side at 33.3 feet. That left me with a half wave end fed and a quarter wave feeder. With a tuner and a good ground, can work all bands 40-10 except 20. Good emergency backup antenna. Thanks to all who worked me. Until next time, 73 Randy

From Werner N8BB, SKCC #5433T

Worked F5DE on 40 with 900mw for over 4400miles/watts, then worked VK4TJ at over 10,000 miles per watt. Was a great evening Sunday. I had a really fun time and glad everyone could help.

From Lee K1LEE, SKCC #7246

Good condx and had a fine time working 80 through 10 - great to have 10 open again! My triband beam here in CT is getting caught in the top of my neighbor's pine tree, so I had to wait until the wind came up to swing from aiming toward the west coast to the two contacts in France. Next move is to deal with the tree and my neighbor. Tnx to all of the friendliest ops on the planet! Lee K1LEE

From Danny K9KHJ, SKCC #7179

Except for 1 QSO on 40m (my 2nd with the always LOUD WA0BGV), this was an entire 20m WES for me. The RTTY-its blew up 40m so I stayed on 20 which was packed with great ops and great signals. Used my trusty and beloved Speed-X.

From Dick K2HT, SKCC #5087T

10 Meters was open with some odd conditions in Missouri. Heard both sides of QSO of KL8DX working WD0ECO es K0KEX. WD0ECO is 60 air miles from my QTH es K0KEX is 180 air miles. Tnx for the QSO's es C U next sprint.

From Rob AC4RM, SKCC #7512T

Sundays here are family day so only had short time to operate. Bands were fantastic. Operated QRO this time.

From Len W1LVT, SKCC #3932T

Worked a number of QRP stations this time around. SKCC has a good group of very skillful QRP operators! 40 meters was wall-to-wall RTTY except for the upper end but made a lot of contacts. The photo is a 1940s Vibroplex Champion I restored after seeing it in a curbside trash pile in New York City many years ago. It's now one of my favorite keys.

From JERRY W9GFB, SKCC #8056C

Only had a little time for contest but great fun as always

From Bill N5RKD, SKCC #7176T

Band conditions were not as good as I had hoped --- given how good they were several days earlier. Bread-and-butter bands were 15 and 20m. I worked a few stations on 40m up around 7114 but RTTY around 7055 made those frequencies unusable for SKCC. 10 meters was unremarkable except for a QSO with Jirka, OK5NN. I apologize to VE3-something-or-other --- I just could not decipher whatever it was you were sending. We banged away at this for maybe 15 minutes and I still did not get your call or your SKCC number, if you had one. (The best description for whatever it was is “joined-up Morse”; every character was run together, even at QRS.) I heard 3 or 4 rough sounding transmitters --- one so bad I had one hand on the RIT to follow him up and down the band and the other on the key! W5ZR Sprinter Version 1.28 worked very well --- the early bugs have been ironed out and the software worked without problems this time out. I did work 5 dupes so obviously not everybody is using this software which now catches the dupes correctly. One general change I noticed: collectively we have stopped transmitting duplicate information by default when the other station gives out 599at the start. Hooray! (Of course, this presumes that the initial “599” really is accurate.) Also I noticed a lot of new SKCC numbers so obviously we are doing something right! Great to see so many familiar SKCC calls, and so many new ones. And a big shout-out to Phillipe, F5JWH, for a late bonus on 20m! Equipment: my usual ICOM IC-7200 into 43 foot vertical; 1962 Vibroplex Blue Racer.

From Alan WA1AR, SKCC #4079T

Upper bands in good condition. Used my G5RV and a 3 band vert. The 80M and 160M dipoles were lost in the recent snow storm, won't get fixed till spring. Mostly used the Vibroplex Champion.

From Paul NG7Z, SKCC #802T

Only had about seven hours of operating time this weekend and made good use of it. With 10M and 15M available (they seemed weaker than during the phone contest last weekend) there was room to spread out. Still, 20M provided the most contacts. It was a good turnout with many 7K and 8K members showing up. My only beef is the continued repetition of qso elements even when I give a good RST report. Thank goodness most guys used the 7.110 area on 40M because of the RTTY contest. Many thanks for the Q's and see you all next time. 73 Paul NG7Z

From Phil KB0ETU, SKCC #4542T

My apologies to KAØRJY - I think you were asking me a question at the end of our contact, but so much noise around me I couldn't make it out. Other than that, busy weekend - not much time to participate. Next WES I will be QRT but plan to be QRV for the SKS this month. 72/73 Phil

From Ray KJ4LEN, SKCC #6956T

Propagation seemed to be pretty good. Had contacts 10-80m. I've got to get my 160m Inv L back up. Nice to work all the great Ops. Had fun and picked up some new numbers using my FT840 at 75W and J38. See everyone next time. Ray

From FRED KB0LF, SKCC #6302T

Great band conditions here. Thanks to all who helped to have QSOs on 160m-10m. Next month I'll get on 6m too! Thanks to John for a QSO on 40 m early Sun AM. My copy was difficult, John--you were right off the end of my dipole, sorry, thanks for your patience. And special thanks to Randy--super job Randy in being available on so many bands. To everyone, this is a great group to do a WES with, kudos to all. Fred, KB0LF

From Mike W5EHM, SKCC #6304T

Sunspot activity really improved the higher bands. Thanks for the time and fun!

From Eric W4OTN, SKCC #7320

This is my first WES and I had a lot of fun. It was great hearing all the SKCC activity on 40 meters and trying to work DX on 10 meters. I even had a station come back to my CQ that said this was his second CW QSO! This contest definitely goes on the calendar so I'll remember every time it comes around.

From Scott K0LAR, SKCC #3522T

I had fun using my new call sign K0LAR. CW4ever!!!!!

From Erkki OH7QR, SKCC #6379T

Thanks for QSOs, could find only one european member.

From HORACE N7DRW, SKCC #7883

Thanks to Bert F6HKA for help getting started. Thank u

I have no idea what a ADIF or Cabrillo format log looks like or where you get it. Open for suggestions by anyone

Lot of fun and thanks to all who worked so hard to set it up. N7DRW


From Brian K7TKT, SKCC #6695

This WES I put my VizKey Vertical Bug on the air for the first time. I learned CW on a straight key and have not used anything else so this was a big change for me. My fist is still learning whether to start a particular letter with the thumb or index finger. There is no way to hide it if I go for a dit and wanted a dah. Thanks to all who managed to overcome my extra or partial dits and get me into the log. I didn’t have a lot of operating time but really enjoyed the WES. I’m grateful to all at SKCC for creating a safe place to try out new (to me) CW equipment. 73, Brian

From BRION VE3FUJ, SKCC #4936T

I did my operating on 40 & 20 this time and didn't do too bad. Looking forward to next month. Brion

From Gil KF7KPL, SKCC #7226T

I had a really good time working QRP. It was like trying to bust a pileup for every contact. My score may not stand up to the rest but I earned it. Thank you to every one who was able to copy me. I worked 40, 20, 15, and 10m bands. I heard more DX stations than ever before, too bad I couldn't make the trip with my 5 watts. 73 till next time de Gil

From Bernard F5DE, SKCC #6247T

Another nice and friendly event as usual.

Two new countries (TA and HC), ten new SKCC numbers, not a too bad result for a few hours in front of the radio and keys.

Worked KA5VZG (5 watts) on ten meters and N8BB (900 mW) on fourty !

K9SKC worked on two bands for extra bonuses.

Unfortunately not possible to be heard John VK4TJ for more bonus points, sorry John !

73 and I hope to meet you all during the last event of the year !


From Rick K0KEX, SKCC #5220T

A late start due to family obligations I found 20M with a few signals, found KK7QW. To check condx I went to 160M and there was a Mo. Outlaw KI0I. Checked 80M and found a few more BUT it was past bed time. Sunday morning the bands were looking good so it had to be a decision between outside work for the coming winter..the temp was in the 60's. Hourly visits to the shack worked for me...10M was alive, I believe I convinced OM3TZO Milan to look into SKCC...2 Hrs before the close John VK4TJ was banging into MO. on 10M, My thanks to John for the great effort. And lets not forget Stan ZL2BLQ/ZL2SWR WOW...!!! 10M was great, Thanks Stan. Also I must thank Randy K9SKC,TNX for 3 bands.

Even with time split between must do winter-a-zation and the WES I had great time, thanks to all SKCC members and those non-members that are interested...73 CU soon


From Vince S52CC, SKCC #5011T

After very good DX conditions on upper bands during the week, they were rather disappointing during the WES. Glad to see Gabor, S57WJ participating. And yes, SKCC in my opininon is still THE Amateur Radio. Thanks guys!

From Dean NW2K, SKCC #7330T

Only 30 minutes of QRP S&P this WES, and had fun on 10M. Thanks to all and see you next time. 5W, matchbox, 80M loop at 30 feet.

From George N2JNZ, SKCC #2836T

Had fun !!! Worked a lot of DX and had a Flex 1500 X 2 QSO with Epe , HC6EP. Worked old friends Rocky , NE7D and Paul , NG7Z on 20 and 40. Tom , W4CU was S9+20db on 40 meters !! Near the end Phil , KL8DX pulled me out of the noise on 10 meters. Thanks Phil !!! Worked a lot of great friends and great ops !!!

From Matt AI7CW, SKCC #7340

As a newer CW op this was great fun. I got several new states and several new numbers.

From John G0RDO, SKCC #2133T

Great fun and had most QSO's on 28MHz - strange that from here there were a lot of stations heard on 28MHz but nothing much on 21MHz.

I used a Norwegian coast station key made by Electrisk Bureau, Oslo. So I enclose a photo of the key with its cover.

Cannot wait for the next WES CUL 73

From Scott N3JJT, SKCC #255T

It has been awhile since I worked a sprint. The weather is getting cooler, so more time in the shack for sprints. Had fun, although I was working outside off and on. Worked quite a few familiar calls, also worked a few new ones. See everyone next time. 73...Scott

From Tom W4TMW, SKCC #6184T

I sure enjoyed this month's WES and even had a chance to use my newly erected 160M ant. The bands seemed to be in pretty good shape too. Station; K2/100, 3el Yagi/OCFD and home brew magnetic bug and st. key. 73 to all and look for you in the next SKS. Tom, in the Peach state ;0)

From Mitch WD0ECO, SKCC #6893T

Good conditions from central Missouri this weekend.

Of course worked Ed, W7GVE, for my first contact as usual in the WES and then 'stalked' him for 4 bands total - hi. I looked for you on 40M Ed but too much RTTY!!!

Only worked a few fellow Missouri Outlaws including Rick (K0KEX), Bill (N0UMP), and Slim (WA0BGV). Never heard KI0I - Mark must have been deer hunting.

I always like to find Bert, F6HKA, and work his big signal from across the pond and found him on two bands. And thanks to G0RDO for his patience while I got his call right.

I did forget to change the K2RFP loggers UTC offset time for the new time and didn't notice until AFTER I had uploaded to my regular logger and LOTW. So, I had to manually add one hour to each contact and re-upload LOTW. DOHHH!!!!

K3 100 Watts, OCF Dipole and Mosley 33 Classic, and NT9K SKCC Club Key.


From Wayne W4CJV, SKCC #7043C

Great band conditions, was able to play QRP for the whole event. Looking forward to the next event.

From BRAD N5LUL, SKCC #3779C

Only had about 3 hours of "on" time this weekend and every bit of it was 3 hours of fun! Decided to drag out and dust off my CLT-26012A. Should have taken the pic AFTER I cleaned it up. Will be back next time.

From Dave W3NP, SKCC #3182T

As to activity level - I thought it went from very active to near dead, depending on when I was on. I made more contacts on 10 than usual. Except for the upper portion of 40 (7108 to 7120), the 40 meter band was rendered near useless by the computer generated RTTY high powered wide band noise - I don't like any mode that I can't copy with just my ears. I got back on Sat eve around 0500 and was surprised at the lack of activity on 80 meters. Ran 5 watts with the TT Omni 7 to the CF open wire fed zepp at 45' and to my KT-34A at 50'. Keys were my "new" 1915 Vibroplex Original, the Vibroplex Anniversary Original, and my WW2 German Telefunken straight key. I thought band condx were pretty good overall. 73, Dave.

From ED W7GVE, SKCC #729T

With many QSOS on 10 and 15 this was the best sprint ever--

I was exhausted at the end but couldnt stop--- my goal was

250 QSOS and the QSO with N6WK at 2358z was my 250th QSO!

Only negative was not working VK4TJ--73 ED W7GVE


From Ed N7EDK, SKCC #7534

Another fun WES, I really look forward to this every month. The K2 was out of action for this WES, so the KX1 and K1 were put to work in the 1 watt and under category. The K1 covered 15 meters, picked up quite a few stations there. The KX1 did a great job again on 20 and 40 meters, no contacts on 80 thou.Thanks to all the stations out there that pulled me out with my 1 watt, a few had more than their share of difficulties getting me. Till next month, 72/73 from Ed,out here in Marana, AZ.

From JOE K7ZG, SKCC #6246C

It was a cold and rainy weekend here in Tacoma, WA ... a perfect time to stay inside, tap on the straight key, and work toward Tribune and WAS awards. I've been very pleased with my shiny new Begali 'Spark' key that arrived from Italy last Monday. Thanks to all for the QSOs! 73/Joe K7ZG

K7ZG's soapbox image


From Jon K1NV, SKCC #2609T

I was only able to operate within a small window on Sunday afternoon, but the activity level seemed to be very good on both 10M and 20M. I heard K9SKC briefly on 10M but didn't have a chance to work him this time. Several QRP stations were worked and the signal from NE5DL was especially noteworthy. My new QTH is far enough north of W7GVE in AZ and Ed is easily workable now off the ionosphere rather than marginal groundwave.

KL7AX put in a powerful signal from AK on 20M but the eastern stations had heavy QSB and W4KRN, Karen< was a bit weak this time. I'm still evaluating the ZS6BKW dipole on the upper HF bands and may have to reorient it for better coverage to the east.

I had to QRT abruptly after a little over an hour of operation, but it was lots of fun. See you in the upcoming 2 hour sprints.


From Noel K8NB, SKCC #3112T

Again not much time, but on Sunday 10 and 15 were hopping. Nice to see those bands back.

From Bill W4CUX, SKCC #5497T

Another great WES. I only played briefly, but had a great time. Band conditions were good for me on 80, 40, and 20. Looking forward to next event.

Bill - W4CUX


From Chas K1PUB, SKCC #4101T

A great WES and a personal best for me. Bands were generally good, especially 10 meters where I had a couple of nice runs. Worked all bands, including one QSO on 160M near the end of the sprint (thank you WI0S). Thank you all who administer the event and all those who participated. Looking forward to the next one.

From JOHN K5ENA, SKCC #3045T

Contacts made on 40, 20, 15 and 10 meters.

From MILT K4OSO, SKCC #180T

Since I was able to work stations on 10, 15, 20, 40 and 80 meters, I must conclude that the bands were in great shape. Most stations were very good ops so that made it a real pleasure. I used a large weight on the Vari-Speed of my Presentation for very slow sending. It apparently worked cuz I only had one or two requests for repeats. Thanks to K8JD, KB4QQJ and a couple of FOC buddies for adding a bit of spice in the form of some QRQ CW. Randy, are you SURE that Junior isn't singing "Carry Me Back To Ole Virginny"?

From Bob K5ZOL, SKCC #3945T

Wish I'd had time to work the whole event.

Heard lots of good signals for the short time I could be on.


From Dave NE5DL, SKCC #5081T

Fun WES. Good to see 10M beginning to open

From Phil KL8DX, SKCC #3800T

I did not begin my straight key quest in the WES until Sunday morning. My goal was to concentrate on 10 meters and that was where the bulk of my contacts were. Great to work so many familiar callsigns and several new! Managed to log Randy & John both, John on 2 bands (10 & 15 meters)! Operated my Icom 756PRO with 100 watts using my Navy Flameproof sending manually generated CW up to my Mosley TA-34-XL @ 43feet. Great to see so many QRP stations on! I gotta fire up my IC-703 now that it's back in the shack for the winter. Thanks for the contacts!

From Doug N3PDT, SKCC #6861T

First sprint for me from my new location. Was good to get back! I'm currently pretty limited antenna-wise, so only worked 20m and 40m, but had great condx through out the WES.

Antenna - 20m/40/ trapped dipole at 23'

Rig - Ten Tec Jupiter - 100w

Key - Navy Flameproof.

73, Doug


From Art WB8ENE, SKCC #3773T

There were some nice strong signals this sprint. I actually made two contacts as a fixed mobile while waiting for my XYL after church. She was at the Christmas boutique while I was adding a few points. 73, and see you in the next sprint.

From CHAS W9SAY, SKCC #1158T

It was a big surprise to have John, VK4TJ, to respond to my weak 339 sig for a bonus station hit. Tnx John.

From Drew AF2Z, SKCC #2082T

Best WES ever! A very even spread of contacts from 10m to 80m. 40m activity was all in the novice portion. Never made it to 160m... Lots of non-C/T members... Sorry for the dupes, Bill N5RKD and Mark K01U... Nice to work Epe HC6EP and Gabor S57WJ. Got Bert F6HKA on 3 bands. Also, tks non-member Carlo IK2ECC... Thanks to Phil KL8DX and Dave KI6BHB for weak signal work... My rig: Elecraft K3 running 10 watts to 90-ft wire and single-feed 10/15m attic dipole; used my trusty Junker key.

I enjoyed using my 1938 McElroy bug. It is in sad shape but still fun to use. There is a lot of rust mixed in with the Deluxe Marbelite finish. I heard France working the VK4 bonus station but never could find him myself.

From JOHN K4BAI, SKCC #3280

Thanks for all QSOs. Please look for me on the new DXCC entity, Bonaire, Nov. 22-29 as PJ4/K4BAI and PJ4A in CQ WW CW Contest. Sorry, I still don't have a hand key on the island. 73, John, K4BAI.

From Joe K4NVJ, SKCC #393T

Not only was I limiting my power to 5 watts, I also used only my 88' long all band dipole. I could have had more contacts on the higher bands with my yagi. QRP is fun.

Best conditions for the WES in a long time from my qth. The higher bands were open. There were lots of participants during the favorable hours, and even with the RTTY activity there was room to SPRINT. I worked someone on every band 160 through 10. Called cq on 6 but no takers.

A tip o' the hat to my fellow "Missouri Outlaws". Didn't work 'um all but got K0LWV-Larry, WD0ECO-Mitch, KI0I-Mark, N0UYN-Dennis, and N0UMP-Bill.

From Carl N5XE, SKCC #6307T

An excellent WES!! I don't know if it was great band conditions, availability of lots of SKCC members, etc., but I believe I had more fun this time than ever before. I worked lots of new SKCC numbers (new to me at least), especially DX stations. After using my Bencher paddles in the ARRL November Sweepstakes (CW) last weekend, I couldn't seem to get my "bug" rhythm going during WES. I appreciate all that tolerated my "bug" fist.

From Curt KU8L, SKCC #5380T

Hadn't planned on working this WES but put in about 4 hours on Saturday nite and another 4 on Sunday. Had a nice run on Saturday nite on 80M.

Seemed like pretty steady activity but where are all the C's ?

Tough on 40M with the RTTY Contest going.


From Greg WA1VIL, SKCC #443T

Missed the last two WES but with 10M open this one was TRIPLE the fun! Thanks to everyone who pulled out my 5 watts. Working K9SKC on three bands is a new high but I got tongue tied...or is it fist tied...when Randy came back the third time. Hope to see you next time es 73 all!

From Jim KA0CSW, SKCC #3741T

Had a great time with the WES. I thought I was running QRP until I noticed my tuner was on the wrong scale, showing me that I was running 50 watts instead of 5 watts. So if any of my contacts who worked me, maybe working on their QRP award, I was not QRP at any time during this WES. Sorry for the wrong info I sent.

I was on 15 meters for 29 of my 31 contacts, the other 2 contacts were on 10 meters. I had not started a 15 meter band endorsement award, until yesterday.So thanks to all who contacted me, I now have a very good start on it.

From Reg KA0RJY, SKCC #4100T

What a great Sprint. I didn't have a lot of time to operate this sprint, however, the time that I did have was fantastic. I was even able to capture the Bonus stations and plenty of DX. Thank you all, for helping make a spectacular WES.

From KEN VE7KBN, SKCC #5533T

Stayed mostly on 10m where I had my own little pile

up going for a few minutes. Great stuff!


From Joe WS9E, SKCC #3859T

Great to hear 10 & 15 meters alive with CW signals. 40 was wall to wall RTTY. I made one QSO up in old Novice band where the RTTY ops don't seem to go.

Spent most of the weekend doing outside chores. This may be the last mild weekend here in WI. I was on the air a little over an hour. I used the Speed-X key, the Omni 6+ and my stealth dipole up 18 ft. Thanks to all. See you next time.


From Jim K6JF, SKCC #4261T

A personal best for me this month surpassing my previous QSO total by 50% and tripled my best score! Just under half of my QSOs were on 10m, lots of good sigs. Saw many new call signs and picked up 10 new C/Ts for my climb to the next Tx level. This sure is a lot more fun when the propagation is good. Next month I look to get to triple digits in QSO count, cant wait!

From Kieth W0IS, SKCC #2048T

Just worked a few dx stations on 15 and 10 meters and Randy, then played on 160 the last 20 min. Tnx to all.

From Brian VE5CUL, SKCC #1672C

The sprints are always fun. Thanks to those who told me the signal from my old Kenwood TS-830S was rough. It has been my main rig since I bought it used about 10 years ago.

I brought in the TS-50 from the car and hopefully it and the FT-817 will work well for the winter.

Thanks everyone. - 73 - Brian


From Randy KC9KHG, SKCC #3687T

Thanks to John-VK4TJ and Randy-KB4QQJ (K9SKC) for being the bonus members for this month. You two did a great job!!

I spent Sunday morning on my tower putting the driven element of my tri-band beam back up with 30 to 40 mph wind gusts. But it was worth it!! It's just a small Mosley ta33jr but works much better than wires.

Thanks to all the members that took part in the WES.The bands were in good shape and it seemed like fun was had by all!

Special theme planned for next month...stay tuned and please keep an eye on the WES page for details.

Thanks & 73 to all!

From Jim K6JJH, SKCC #6573

This was my first real WES. I participated in one about a year ago, but logged only 1 QSO and that was it. I'm getting back into CW and as my ability to copy increases, so does my fun!

This event was perfect for me as it forced my accuracy and speed while maintaining a fun atmosphere. I will admit that I used the SKCC page to verify my copy (I was 100% on all the required data)....having that double check also increases my confidence.

I ALMOST had the bonus station late Saturday night, but I couldn't quite pull him out of the QRN. :( Perhaps I need better antennas than my home-brew multi-wire dipole! ;)

I'll be back next month hopefully with more speed and confidence!!

Bands in real good shape for the sprint, including 80 meters. Worked a number of new ops for me including Epe, HC6EP,and Luis, CT1GZB. Worked hard to get Brian, AE0P, and finally managed it. Overall, lots of fun. Thanks to Randy operating K9SKC and VK4TJ for their efforts. Lots of fun, as always.

From Vic KB7GL, SKCC #3636

Nice to be able to get-in some air time, in between the numerous "Honey-Doos". First WES in a couple of years. I really enjoyed meeting new folks, getting several new numbers (sneaking-up on my "C") and reconnecting with some old friends, such as Phil, AL8DX. Looking forward to the SKS. 73, Vic

From Allen KF7EST, SKCC #6008C

Another great Sprintathon! Highlights for me: France, Costa Rica, Japan, Australia, and New Zealand. Made Q''s on 10m (11), 15m (18), 20m (29) and 40m (21). Worked K9SKC on 2 bands and John on 1. Thanks everyone and see you next time.

From George KH6OZ, SKCC #3975T

Thanks for the QSOs. Band conditions were great.

From Rock NE7D, SKCC #665T

Wow, this group is getting BIG! After all the high-tempo contests, WES is wonderfully comfortable and a real pleasure to participate in. Very enjoyable to work old friends and connect with so many newer members. And so cool to be called by so many EU members, especially here on the left coast!

Randy wore the K9SKC jersey well -- he was everywhere, all the time! My goof of the weekend: trying so hard to hear KH6OZ on 28.055 -- aiming the beam at HI. Finally remembered he's in MT and worked him on 20 for my last QSO. Sorry, George!

Used my recently acquired Junker key. Good feel; like it a lot.

Tnx for the QSO's everyone.....

73, Rock NE7D


From Jack KK0I, SKCC #2370T

From Donna AG6V, SKCC #6933T

enjoyed getting back into the SKCC events after some time away. nice to hear familiar fists/names.

From Jim NV9X, SKCC #1358T

Nice WES. Thanks to all my contacts and SKCC. Thanks to Randy and John for the bonus contacts. Noticed more 80 and 160 participation due to seasons changing.

From Randy K9SKC, SKCC #3508T

What a hoot!! I haven't seen bands this good in many years. I started out S&P looking for weak or QRS stations and then just started calling "CQ WES". I was never short of QSO's.

took time to inform several non members what "CQ WES" meant. Lot of new stations worked and many old friends. Had a nice Bug run with Milt and Donna's sideswiper was music to hear! Strongest signal was a surprise contact with TI2CLX Luis out of Costa Rica at 50 db over!!! Huge signal Luis, thanks. Nice to hear a lot of the QRP'ers letting me know they were at low power. Werner's 900 mW was booming on three bands!

Managed to work Russ, K0LUW and Rock, NE7D on 5 bands. Too many to count were worked on multiple bands. It was really nice to see the DX stations getting in the mix and I worked a couple new ones. Rig was a TS-570s into a PAR EndFedz EF-20/40 and a homebrew 5 band no tuner doublet both at 33 feet. Keys were my PS-213 Marconi and a circa 1938 Martin Junior pictured below. It was great fun operating the K9SKC club call and I highly recommend signing up for it if you haven't yet.

73 for now and see you in the next event.

From Chuck KA8HDE, SKCC #6913T

Only a little while to work the sprint, but a good time. Special thanks to Stan (ZL2BLQ) for patience and QRS.

From Dan KC5GXL, SKCC #647T

Had to edit my score. It still showed that I was "C". Been a 'T' since this summer. Just forgot to change my profile.

At any rate, had lots of fun again in this WES. Heard lots of activity on 10 and 20. CUAGN es TU 73,

Dan


From Dennis N0UYN, SKCC #5753T

From Joe KD2JC, SKCC #710T

Had to re-submit my results. Can't read my own handwriting. 10 Meters full of activity, many new Cs and Ts there. Used my K2 and Vibroplex Champion and Hamkey HK-3M. Thanks to all that worked me. 73

From Barry NF1O, SKCC #164T

I only found Randy K9SKC and Bernard but Bernard couldn't hear me.

From Allen KA5TJS, SKCC #5172T

Not a lot of contacts but lots of fun. Got AK and HI on 10 meters! Upper band make it more fun. I will be back next month. 73's Allen

From Bill W7JZE, SKCC #6053

I only had an ANT up for 40 Meters this month. I was off to a good start. Then a long spell of calling CQ and answering stations that could not hear me(?). Even with my old Swan 700cx with ~300W out. Then some strangeness in my old Swan output as it started to surge and back off. then a crazy, surging, unsteady SWR > 7:1... What's up with this? HMmmm.. a Bad balun on my Hamstick Dipole! I tilted over the PVC mast, took off the Balun, then the SWR was back to 1:2 but WES was over by the time I had it figured out.

Oh, well... That's what makes it fun :-)

It was nice to start with W7GVE (ED) in AZ right at the beginning :-) I think I have contacted ED on most all WES contests that I have entered. HI ED <waves>.


From Jim AF3Z, SKCC #3034T

This was my first time to get into a WES. I had never read the rules to realize that I had 24 hours during which to jump in for a while. So, thanks everybody. I had a blast. --Jim, AF3Z

From Alex PA1FOX, SKCC #8265

Amazing, quite some activity on the K3UK sked page, but only one SKCC signal. Heared.

I did have a try with John, VK4TJ, he heared me on 15m but he was drowned in noise at my place. So just a SWL report this time. I did not hear any European activity on 40 or 80 either.... Maybe better next time.


From Dan WB3KBW, SKCC #8249

Sure do enjoy these Sprints. It's especially nice that most everyone takes the time to say GL,TU,73, or even "welcome". Thanks to all for having the patience to copy my little 1.5 watts. 73, Dan

From Alan KA5VZG, SKCC #6264T

My 2nd QSO was with John, VK4TJ. Bonus station,DX,5 watts,I was excited. I ended up with 8 DX (VK4TJ, F6HKA, HC6EP, F5DE, DL9YCS, TI2CLX, IK2RMZ, OK5NN)out of 36 total QSO's. What a QRP day :-)

From Jim W1RO, SKCC #1379

Fun event as always just wish I could make all of them. I hope in the future we will be able to send in our WES Reports via SKCC CW Traffic Net. HI HI !!! 73 Jim, W1RO/7

From Emil WD4SCZ, SKCC #556T

Tubes were warm, pencil was sharp, new pad of paper...then the phone rang. Got called in to work.

From Feco HA8KW, SKCC #3447T

Less than 1.5 hour operation due to kitchen renewal...

Hope to be able to work more in next event. TNX to Gene KL7GLL for reminding me of submitting the results...

73!

From Tom NG3V, SKCC #3205C

Didn't have much time this weekend, and spent most of what I did have available chasing Alaska - maybe next time.

Tom


From Peter AK3X, SKCC #7217T

Spent most of my time on 40 between 0000 and 0400 or so. DSW-40 at 3 watts. Had a few minutes on Sunday for 3 QSOs on 20 (DSW-20@3W). Other hobbies took out the rest of the day (bicycling and a banjo gig).

Had fun, which is the whole point. Hope to have a new (better?) antenna

for the next WES. 73 to all


From Roger KL3FL, SKCC #8425

30 years of hamming, and this was only my 3rd QSO ever. And my first contest participation. WES provided the perfect venue (friendly & moderate speeds) to get my feet wet.

Special thanks to Drew, AF2Z for his excellent on-line tutorial that gave the the confidence to get on the air... Now I'm better prepared and looking forward to the next WES. <grin>
