From Doug N3PDT, SKCC #6861T

Another fun WES. Bands, especially 20m were great on Saturday night. Sunday was another story. Worked 4 fellow Missouri Outlaws (K2HT Dick, WD0ECO Mitch, KI0I Mark, and our ringleader, WA0BGV Slim), and got F6HKA, Bert on 3 bands. Worked a lot of new-to-me numbers, including a good number of sub-2000 SKCCers. Also worked 5 9000-plus numbers, including #9400, F5PKR Oliver.

Thanks to all, and see you next time.


From Brian K7TKT, SKCC #6695C

Only an hour of air time this month and that with a thunderstorm raging outside. Limited to the attic loop and QRP radio. Thanks to those who heard my little signal. 73, Brian

From Ed N7EDK, SKCC #7534

Well another fun WES with the KX3 at 5 watts today. Only got to work the afternoon, but condition on 20 meters didn''t seem too bad for me ! Only picked up one state from the 13, that was MD, thank you Hans,WA1LWS.Used my recently aguired Hi-Mound BK-100/MS-435 Bug, I really like the feel of it, seems smoother than my Vibroplex Original. Thanks to all my contacts again, and see everyone next month..........73 de Ed

From John VK4TJ, SKCC #4474T

It was all about 20 mtrs, this time. It appeared to remain open all night, providing some good short path and long path openings.

From Kurt KJ5WU, SKCC #9037

Another enjoyable WES. Thanks for the contacts.

From John G0RDO, SKCC #2133T

Good fun. I got an hour or so on the radio and 11 QSO's in the log, with 9 on 20m and 2 on 15m. The 2 on 15m ( Bert/W5ZR and John/K4BAI ) I also worked on 20m !

Thanks to F6HKA, W5ZR(2 bands), OH7UG, K4BAI(2 bands), KO1U, SA5ACN, KP4SJ, YU7AE & F5OEL.

Running 100 watts with an FT-2000 and a MA6V vertical. Key: Marconi PS No213A "GKA" coast station key c 1930's

From Art KB1NHV, SKCC #2775T

Some really nice activity on 15,20 and 40. Got NV so have one more state for WAS SKCC. Also new countries Sweden and Germany. Great fun!

From Jim ND9M, SKCC #8233T

This was a short WES for me as I had to leave for Diego Garcia on Sunday. I should be on during the next few WES contests using my other callsign, VQ9JC. The 13 Colonies bonus was a terrific addition!

From Randy KX1NH, SKCC #1050T

40m was real noisy here so spent most of my time on 20m. Lots of fun and look forward to the next WES. Hats off to the organizers for a fun challenge. 73

From Alex PA1FOX, SKCC #8265C

I checked the bands during Sunday afternoon. Unfortunately hardly any signals were heard. I did manage to work Timo, OH5FNI, which was a new nr for me. Tnx Timo.

Maybe better condx next time.

From Dean NW2K, SKCC #7330T

5W, fan dipole at 40'. Only a few hours in the chair and good conditions on Saturday evening. Thanks to all and see you next WES.

From Jack KK0I, SKCC #2370T

Enjoyed the time on the air...along with the QRN and QSB. Signals were there, sent report, and then they were gone. Thanks for all the contacts folks! Look forward to another.

From Alan WA1AR, SKCC #4079

Conditions spotty. Mostly S&P through the day as time permitted.

From Dick K2HT, SKCC #5087T

Thanks for fun SKCC QSO's. Conditions were up and down in Missouri with QSB/QRN.

Multiband Contacts N8KR(3), W5ZR(3), KI0I(2) Special thanks to Slim for 160 Meter contact at 0930Z. C U next sprint.


From Emil WD4SCZ, SKCC #556T

Operating time was limited, but the theme was great fun. Started of with a bang, with Bert F6HKA and always great signal. Used a key from Poland. There is little information, but the key was used by a paramilitary organization called the LTA and Polish operators nicknamed it "Bocian" (stork.) It is a Swedish style long-lever, front contact key similar to the famed Amplidan, Pedersen and Marconi keys. It is quite comfortable to use and has tied with the Junker MT-1 as my favorite.

From Dave K9AAA, SKCC #270T

I was out of town for most of the WES, but did manage a few contacts late Sunday afternoon. Looking forward to the August WES with my new Begali Spark Key.

From Erkki OH7QR, SKCC #6379T

Had only 1 QSO this time, hope to manage better in August. Tnx for the QSO Bernard.

From Joe KD2JC, SKCC #710T

Wish I had more time. Had to leave for vacation. The theme is a good one and hope it continues next year 73

From Bert K6CSL, SKCC #4486

Conditions were not too bad, considering the recent solar events. I really enjoy the WES. Lots of fun. John, VK4TJ, #4474T really made my day. I really hoped there would be some activity on 10 and 15m, though. Oh, well. Bert, K6CSL

From Dave W0YZZ, SKCC #5519T

Great contest but where was Delaware?

From Ted K4UFT, SKCC #4289T

Only got 3 of the colonies and France. (Thanks, Bert!) Oh well, I gave 22 people 25 points each for SC.

Worked GA on 20 Meters. Kinda short ... only about about 200 miles.

Had a pipeline to Bert W5ZR ... booming 20 over 9 on 15,20, and 40.

Icom 7000 @50 Watts, end-fed wire antenna, J-37 key.


From John K4BAI, SKCC #3280

FT1000MP, TH6DXX, dipole, inverted vee. Good conditions. Good activity. Thanks for all QSOs. 73, John, K4BAI.

From Chas KB2UOH, SKCC #7560

Rough going with QRP but fun.

From STEVE KG9HM, SKCC #8759

Fun, as always. A very special thank you to those who took the time to dig my signal out of the noise!! MFJ-9020 with 5 watts on 20 meters into an attic dipole. See you next month!

From Art WB8ENE, SKCC #3773T

Nice sprint, but I wish the bands would have been a little more cooperative. Couldn't find any redcoats, but I did manage to snag 5 colonies and France. See you next time. 73, Art

From Frank W4HAY, SKCC #678T

Between other obligations and dodging thunderboomers, limited time was available to operate. Signals were weak because of my temporary Bambi-catcher antenna, but we had a good time anyway.

From Slim WA0BGV, SKCC #5465T

Strange conditions in my part of Missouri. On Sunday at times 40 was completely void of any signals. Musta had a solar flare or something.

Didn't hear SC, VA, PA, DE nor UK and not too many signals from out west fell in my part of Missouri.

Worked several of my MO pals. K2HT (Dick) at 4:30 am on 160. Others Outlaws on various bands... KI0I, N3PDT, WD0ECO, W0YZZ, K0LWV, N0UMP, WB0PYF, N0UYN and W0SZV.

Besides the WES I worked on some "Honey Do's. Multi-tasking for me means a poor result for all endeavors.

From PSARC N1ME, SKCC #9332

Operator: Wes W1LIC #1142T. Had a good time in this WES. Where was DE?! It is always good to work members for the first time. Made good progress towards getting Centurion for the club. Conditions varied a lot during the 24 hours. Kenwood TS-480SAT, dipole or vertical, old Lafayette straight key.

From Bernard F5DE, SKCC #6247T

In spite of my efforts, surprisingly for this WES, only five QSO on 40 m and two on 15 m, nil on 80 m and 10 m.

All other QSO were done on 20 m due to a lack of openings elsewhere.

Eight new members were logged. Seven Colonies multis plus GBR and FRA made a few extra bonus points.

As usual a nice event, even if I had more difficulties to be heard by callers than last month.

The attached photo shaws my "big" antenna, not very effective but always ready to send my dits and dahs all over the world when propagation helps !

73 and see you soon !

From Jim K5BZH, SKCC #447T

I loved this month's theme, it was a winner, even though I only grabbed 6 of the "colonies" and missed France and the UK.

Those Missouri ops, they are a driving force. Worked 7 of them. Also had 7 California Qs, but keep in mind that California has a much larger ham population.


From Mitch WD0ECO, SKCC #6893T

Good conditions on Saturday night and most of the weekend except for a few times on Sunday when the bands went completely dead.

Worked several new members which is always nice to hear them active in the WES. Good OPs.

WA0BGV (aka Slim - the MO Outlaw's Ring Leader) had the Outlaw posse out in force. Nice to work many of you and look forward to seeing you at the Warrensburg Hamfest on Saturday.

Elecraft K3 100 watts, Mosley CL33 and OCF dipole, and just acquired Nye Speed-X key.


From Stan AE0SL, SKCC #7764T

I loved the 13 colonies focus, and I would like to see this sort of regional focus done again for other regions. I could not spend much time on the air this time, but it was a lot of fun.

From Mike N5YG, SKCC #6304T

Sorry for the low score but it's about all the chemo would allow. Nice to hear a few more call signs. Thanks to SKCC for all the fun. 73, Mike

From Larry K0LWV, SKCC #3571

I had a great time. WES just gets better and better. Had fun with Bill N0UMP & Mark KI0I running the bands. Didn't work many colonies my VEE beam runs beams north and south mostly. W5ZR just peels the bark off my trees. He was 60 db over S9 on a scotch s. meter. Plenty of static, QSB, & local noise. My rig IC-718 and 12 mtr longwire VEE Beam 4 wave length (150 ft) per leg. I use it on all bands.

From Pete W1PNS, SKCC #4853T

Operated from Lobstercon at a campground in Brunswick, ME, for a bit Saturday night -- four QSOs tells you how intense the 'skeeters became. ;-) It was great to see three other SKCC members at the event: Ken, WA8REI, Dick, K1IEE, and Peter, KB1LZH. Lobstercon is an annual weekend-long QRPer's conclave put on by Rex Harper, W1REX. Good times!

From Paul NG7Z, SKCC #802T

It's been several months since I got on for an SKCC event. I got burned out after the last K3Y event. Total time on for this one was about 3 hours. I chose to spend most of my radio time for the DL-DX RTTY contest.

From RICH W4RQ, SKCC #8699T

I had a great time as usual, not running with the Top Dogs as usual, but lots of fun. I got bamboozled by a poser claiming membership number that belongs to another, had to strike that one from my list! I guess there is one in every crowd! Hi Hi

From Rick WU1V, SKCC #9293

This sprint was a lot of fun. I only worked about 5 hours in three shifts due to a back/neck problem, but I did manage to make 52 contacts. I only heard and worked 5 of the original 13 (I''''''''m in Massachusetts but I couldn''''''''t count myself hihi), but I did work a France station (where do I put my 250 point bonus??). The key I used was a corroded old J-38 which worked like a dream. Best key I''''''''ve used to date.

From Jon K1NV, SKCC #2609T

Weekends are a busy time but I was able to put in an hour or two of operating. The bands were not very good, but 15M was productive Sunday morning. 20M was slow in the afternoon and nothing was heard on 10M or 15M later. Not many original colony states heard but I got NY, RI, and NH.

From TONY W2HWW, SKCC #4488T

Another great weekend sprint. Signals were great on 20M and 40M.

From Bert W5ZR, SKCC #2931T

Thanks to all who contacted me this was my best effort. Conditions were good all the way up to 10 meters, and I made many multiple band qsos. Worked all of the colonies except Delaware - maybe they had a power failure with the recent storms! 73 Bert

From George N2JNZ, SKCC #2836T

Computer lost first 5 contacts and the bands were fickle but had a good time !! Got Andy , E51AND on 20 for a big surprise !! Worked many old friends that I haven't worked for a while. Had a bit of trouble with the rigs power cord but sorted that out. Kenwood TS 450S at 100 watts to my ZeroFive 40 meter vertical and used the Vibroplex 100th Anniversary Bug ... Thanks all !!!!!

From Rick K7CHS, SKCC #8573C

Thanks to everyone I contacted. Was a good time.

From Don KF7DS, SKCC #8281

On Saturday it was hard NOT to make contacts - on Sunday it was "work":) - but, doable. Loved the theme, just wished we had better conditions so we could hear more of the Colonies...never heard anyone from DE.

Best,

Don KF7DS


From Ron AC2C, SKCC #2748T

Great WES and nice theme. I was not surprised to miss DE, but was surprised to get RI while missing PA, SC, and England.

I had just finished the 13 Colonies event and had a clean sweep of the thirteen PLUS the WM3PEN bonus station.


From ron WX4RM, SKCC #8064C

Saturday eve was very good conditions, Sunday afternoon conditions were very noisy and much more difficult to be heard, but my peanut whistle got 6 Colonies and France. Thanks to all who pulled me out of the noise level. Had a great time, I look forward to the next one.

From PHIL KB0ETU, SKCC #4542T

Storms all around me, but still managed to make contacts. Only made 5 contacts with the colonies, plus one contact

with France (F5OEL - TNX Jean). Forty meters was really noisy with QRN, but 20 meters was quiet. Didn't hear anyone on 15 meters or 80 meters. Hope to hear y'all during the SKS this month. 72/73 Phil


From Dave W3NP, SKCC #3182T

I enjoyed the theme this month. Was able to work 8 of the colonies plus France. Got Bert F6HKA on 40 late Sat nite or probably wouldn't have worked him as condx were pretty poor here Sunday on 20. 40 was also down on Sunday. Condx Sat eve on 20 from here in WV were strange with very short skip. I was able to point my beam towards the NE and the stations in that area actually peaked up - usually beam direction doesn't much matter on close in stations. The down side was that the west coast was weak so had trouble getting past the mid-west stations with my 5 watts. Worked a few 9000+ numbers but the most interesting was Ray KJ4AOM nr 9471. He said he just got his nr but I didn't have it in my DB which I had just downloaded right before the sprint, so I refreshed it again and lo and behold there is 9471 - the very latest number to be issued. Way to go Ray - get right in there with a WES!!

Rig: TEN TEC EAGLE @ 5 watts. Keys (pictured): GERMAN JUNKER STRAIGHT KEY AND 1915 VIBROPLEX with it's Horace G. Martin nameplate. My CF Zepp was about 10 feet lower due to the severe storm last week. Spent about 7 hours on the air. 73 de "The Mountain State" WV

From Ray KJ4LEN, SKCC #6956T

Worked only 4 colonies. Propagation was up and down. Used my FT840 @ 75W and 1944 Viboplex original bug. Ray

From Matt N3EIN, SKCC #6742T

An interesting, fun WES. Conditions at 0000Z were quite good on 15m and 20m, but deteriorated considerably by 1200Z. Good signals could be found, but only in very specific areas. I was counting on 40m and 80m for nearby colonies, but they only contributed RI, which was appreciated. Thanks to all.

From ED W7GVE, SKCC #729T

This was a nice WES--- I could not fine VT or DE but did catch Bert and Bernard in FRA.. Sunday morning 20 became a mass of noise so went to 15 for some good QSOS--- The MO outlaws were riding tall in the saddle for this one

CU Next month ! 73 ED


From Carl AA5VE, SKCC #8863C

I had a great time on the radio this weekend! Thanks to all that participated in the WES and those that take the time organize the event.

Now working toward was- hb1b- that shud be fun.

Thanks to everyone who dug my signal out!!


From Joe K4NVJ, SKCC #393T

I did not hear many of the colonies on 20 Sunday afternoon. And practically nothing on 40.

From JOHN K5ENA, SKCC #3045T

Stayed mainly on 20M. Enjoyed the Sprint as always.

John, K5ENA


From Larry W9CC, SKCC #469T

QRN was terrible and got worse but couldn't dampen the fun.

From Carl N5XE, SKCC #6307T

Started out working the WES...but on Sunday, we had a nice opening on 6-M, so went up there and played around for most of the day. Not a lot of QSO's, but had fun all the same.

Also worked the 13 COLONIES event (got a clean sweep). Sure wish the bands would better cooperate. Thanks to all.


From Mike W8MDE, SKCC #4877T

Just got on for a bit on Saturday night. Signals sounded good in Ohio. 73

From TOM KE7YTE, SKCC #6447T

I worked 20M with KX3, 5W, Vertical Depole up 18 ft. It was a fun WES. Thanks to all.

From Jim N5JPX, SKCC #8672

I got home from a trip mid-afternoon Sunday and thought my antenna had come down because the bands were so quiet! Found some activity on 20 meters where I made most of my contacts between unpacking and other chores. Managed to make one contact on 40 meters. Thanks to everyone who picked my QRP signal out of the noise and fading bands. 73, Jim

From Al WB4JJJ, SKCC #9459

My first WES. Used a Speed-X key, recently restored. Propagation was poor with lots of noise and QSB despite high solar flux and reasonable A and K indexes.

From Alan KA5VZG, SKCC #6264T

too many thunderstorms, but worked a few, fun as always

From Neal KA1SAW, SKCC #2824T

It's been a while,busy with other things. It was great to participate in this WES. Only on the air for a short time."But Had FUN".

Lots of fun, too bad was at same time as ARCI QRP HB Sprint, which I participated in.

USED 150 WATTS

From JIM K4AOA, SKCC #8333C

Deep QSB at times. Thank you to the many stations that stayed with me to make the contact. Many I new were there but just could not copy. Many exchanges containing 4's, but had fun. As always enjoyed the WES. 73/Jim/K4AOA

From Ed KB3SZZ, SKCC #5763

This is my first entry in a Sprint. Hope to participate again soon. 73

From Rick N5RB, SKCC #8994

No where close to a sweep of the 13 Colonies, but it seems that DE was as rare as usual. Had a blast, wish I had more time to operate.

From Werner N8BB, SKCC #5433T

ok, so I didn't count the 13 colonies correctly, Thanks Pete,

Lot's of fun this week end. Mostly 20 meters, 40 was not very good for 1 watt from here, Thanks to Bert, Bernard,Gabor and Jean for the DX connection. Found Randy again, hope to get another streak going. See everyone next event.


From Pat AC0SR, SKCC #7072

This was my first Sprintathon and I had a blast! While I didn't expect to score very high, I did get a lot of CW practice, and met a lot of very nice, patient people. SKCC folk rock!

From RICH KC2FOL, SKCC #9378

Had a grand time and made 11 new contacts toward Centurion.Thanks to all who welcomed this cw newbie to the WES.

From LARRY KC0M, SKCC #8177

Only had a short time for work this but wanted to help out the Missouri Outlaws.

From Charles N2SO, SKCC #7834

The running stations had mini pile ups! Great fun. I increased my confidence level by 100%.

From Andy VE7LAJ, SKCC #6611T

Had company this weekend, so was able to sneak in only one QSO; tnx Tom. Had fun, as always, even with the short time I was on. 73, de Andy

No soap today.

From Steve K2DEP, SKCC #9273

OMG! What a great WES. Wish I cud have used 20M. Got to work on that, only a Tech. Nice job to all. Most of what I was able to get was on 40M. Tnx to S57WJ in Slovenia and DL9YCS in Germany; nice DX. I am using a Mini G5RV only 46ft long @ 12ft high with a LDG AT200 auto tuner. Considering I am close to sea level, not much height, that combo worked pretty well. Got 11 colonies and tnx to all that QSO''d. This is my 3rd sprint and the best of all. I wish Cndx on the bands were better, very noisy just about everywhere. Sunday afternoon was so poor I just didn''t bother. Hope you all had as much fun as I did. 73s to all and I plan to send QSLs to all my new contacts.

From Bill N0UMP, SKCC #659T

Had a late start due to a fire call, I'm a volunteer fireman, but got back to the rig around 10:00pm or there abouts. Worked Bert in France and a bunch of my fellow Outlaws. As always, there were a bunch of fine ops on. Had some storms floating around the area making noise also. I guess that makes it more interesting. I was running my IC-746, homebrew straight key and various antennas. CUL Bill

From Joe W1HFF, SKCC #6309

Conditions were not very good here. Worked only 4 colonies and one France. Still a lot of fun though.

From Tim NZ8J, SKCC #1852

First time in a SKCC event and I have to say it was a lot of fun. I broke out the old J-38 and dusted it off. I used it with my K3 @ 90 watts, center fed all band dipole and tribander. I'm looking forward to the next event, I was not prepared for this as I should have been, it was a last minute decision to participate.... Great job to the organizers!!

From GREG K7SDW, SKCC #622T

Great WES.. sure wish I could of made it all day, but with that M6 solar flare at 1600+ guess I did not miss too much on Sunday morning. Worked 25 on 40m, 47 on 20m. Had fun listening to the dupes comming and going. Always interesting to hear 2 or 3 CQ nearly on the same freq. With the filters in, cuts off the weak stations, so for those who heard me and I did not answer, sri.. maybe next time. 73

From John W3HI, SKCC #9104

First, thanks to Pete for this neat "Revolutionary Sprintathon" (even if he wouldn't count bonus points for WV as part of VA!). Second, thanks to a very fine gentleman, Bert F6HKA, for the French connection on 15M. Third, thank you Ron AC2C for the SKCCLogger which I used for the first time. And Fourth, my apologies to N0GRA who I lost to QSB after calling for 15 minutes.

As usual, I had more interruptions than operating time, but still really enjoyed it. Twenty was doing good, but I logged most contacts on 40. I was happy with my Bendix Flameproof, Icom 751 throttled back to abt 40W, and my ZS6BKW at 30 ft. I started out with my PFR-3 at 5W, but found I needed a little more kick on 40.

Thanks to all that slowed down for me. Much appreciated. Obviously, I didn't win any accolades, but I still have a big smile after working this one.


From Curt WA2JSG, SKCC #3018T

Knowing how everyone was looking for the first state of DELAWARE, I called good friend Jim KB3PZN #6825 in DE on the local DE repeater, and told him how he could become the most popular guy in the SKCC (for a day at least...hi hi), but I just could not persuade him to get on the air. Guess he was afraid everyone would 'pounce' on him (hi hi).

As for myself, someday I'll pick a WES that I can devote the entire time, but for this one, I'll just settle for a handful of contacts. Here IC-703, 5w off a 12v battery to a vertical. Big ole English Kent Straight Key.


From Rick K0KEX, SKCC #5220T

With limited time Saturday evening S & P seemed like a good plan. Sunday morning 20 & 15 was good and I ran into several old friends along with a few of the new members. Thanks to all for some great contacts....73 Rick

From Dave NE5DL, SKCC #5081T

Tried out a borrowed KX3 for nearly all the QSOs with Hex Beam QRP and AM mini b cootie. Worked N8BB, Werner and wished I had asked you for your power, should have known better. Went into the backyard with a Walham mag loop and LiFePo battery trying my portable setup. Worked Tony W4FOA, thanks.

This is to correct my mistake on the 13 bonus colonies where I entered 4.

From Joe WS9E, SKCC #3859T

Very busy weekend. Got on, Saturday, just long enough to make ten contacts. I worked two colonies. I turned the radio on Sunday, but only a few weak stations were heard. It was fun working the friendly SKCC ops. Worked two Missouri outlaws, including the leader of the gang, Slim.

My wife and I hope to spend the winter and early Spring at our St Louis County QTH, so I hope to meet some of the outlaws in person. See everyone next time.


From mark KI0I, SKCC #6585T

Had some fun with the sprint but kept being distracted by the openings on 6m. Kept trying to lure out some skcc`ers to 50mc but only put two members in the sprintlog.Thanks everybody for the contacts and c u in the sks...73 Mark

From Mike K5TRI, SKCC #9409

This was my first WES and I had a good time. My wife and me spent the weekend on top of a hill in the Texas Hill Country from which I operated with a portable station and QRP while enjoying the unobstructed view (well except for the antenna of course :) ).

From Kerry WD5ABC, SKCC #12

I was portable at my dad's farm for the weekend, the TS-430 didn't have a CW filter so it was tough on 40m with the RTTY contest going. I only had time for a few contacts but they were all fun. I was using a 20 ft high 40m dipole and my 1941 Vibroplex Original.

From Peter AK3X, SKCC #7217T

Fun event as usual...limited time to participate as usual. New for this sprintathon was having a 3 watt 15 meter rig that works again.. made 2 qso's on that band (KD1JV MS-15 from 12 years ago). The rest of the QSOs were split between 20 and 40. Did get three new C/T in my glacial paced approach to Tx3...See you all next month.. 72/73 Peter

From Kieth WI0S, SKCC #2048T

Fun sprint with some interesting band condx''s. There seemed to be considerable activity however on 20 meters. Worked mostly above the QRM! Worked Bert F6HKA with varying signals on 20 and on 15 meters. Our other Bert W5ZR had the strongest signal along with Bill KB2RAW who was running is backup rig which had an interesting sound to it, I figured it for a tube rig but it was an ICOM. Looking forward to the Summer FISTS Sprint on Friday night, hope to work many of you again. 73, Kieth

From Dennis N0UYN, SKCC #5753T

Not much time for the sprint. I liked the theme. Thanks to Bill KB2RAW for NY and Randy KB4QQJ for NC. 73.

From Phil N1DN, SKCC #6482T

Used my J-38 on a "custom base" made years ago by my young son...after his first woodburning class. The J-38 came from e-bay for maybe $40. The base is priceless :)

Great WES with lots of activity. Made it on the air hear and there over the 24hrs; gardening and kid's lacrosse kept me busy. Never really figured out the propagation, but had some nice suprises. Started Saturday evening with one of my few 13 colonies contacts, my neightbor Lee, K1LEE, here in CT. This was my first sprint to use the new SKCC by AC2C, and it was great to work and log Ron later on last night. Thanks Ron for a FB addition to the SKCC software pool. Started Sunday morning with quiet bands, and then heard one of the strongest and finest continous waves to ever come across my little 857d. I thought this must be my ham the next neighborhood (who I've never meet or heard). Well, it turned out to be W5ZR, Bert in Louisiana! 599+ Finally closed out with S57WJ, Gabor in Slovenia. Thanks for the new SK DX. 73 to all. Phil, N1DN
