Soapbox


From Brian K7TKT, SKCC #6695C

Sadly little time for the WES this month. Only about an hour broken up into a couple sittings. Focused on the 80 and 10m. 10m was quite good Sunday. Thanks for the QSOs. 73, Brian

From Carl N5XE, SKCC #6307T

Didn't give a serious effort to this WES, but had fun just the same.

I used a Les Logan Speed-X bug that I picked up at a local hamfest a couple of weeks ago. The picture doesn't do it justice. It is in excellent shape. The picture shows what looks like rust, but it is actually only dust. The guy I bought it from stated that it used to belong to a Judge out in western Oklahoma. There are no serial numbers on these keys, so its rather difficult to determine the age, but I beleive it was made in the late 1940's or early 1950's. I used a heavy bolt as a weight to slow the "dits" down, but it is still pretty fast.

Thanks to all that participated in the WES. Hope to see you again next time. 73 de Carl, N5XE

From Ed N7EDK, SKCC #7534

Another great WES with the Veterans Day theme today ! I was only able to pickup 5 Vets out of my 12 contacts.

I used my favorite little Elecraft radio, the KX1 at 1 watt thru my G5RV JR up at 25 feet. The 1 watt worked pretty well from 1000 to 1500 miles on 20 meters. I had no luck on 40 and 80 meters at all.

Thanks again to all my contacts, and thanks to all the Veterans out there for your service to our country !I did 4 yrs in the Air Force as a Crew Chief on the C-130, OV-10, and my favorite, the Cessna O-2 !

See everyone next month for the last WES of the year.

From Scott N3JJT, SKCC #255T

I got a late start Saturday. Had to work on Sunday, so my time was very limited. I enjoyed the theme! Thanks to the vets that helped my 13 point bonus. K2 here at 100 watts, Bencher RJ-1. Until next time..73

From Paul NG7Z, SKCC #802T

I had very little time this weekend but what I had was great fun. I expect some huge scores with the veteran bonus especially those who are vets. And my very sincere thanks to them. I was 4F during Vietnam due to spondololeisthis in my lower back. A condition I'm still wrestling with today. Just had another fusion two weeks ago. 73 Paul NG7Z

From Ron W6FPS, SKCC #2126

Had a great time even though the conditions weren't so hot. Didn't get on the air Saturday evening due to my 67 birthday party, but, I did get some new hardware for the shack (see photo below). Now I need to upgrade the software , the gray matter between my ears, to get it to function properly. As I said the conditions weren't so good, but I did make contact with Bert, F6HKA, on 10 meters which was a shocker to me in Southern California.

Being an ex-weekend warrior (National Guard) I wasn't quite deserving the /V designation. I think that it is really meant for the for the combat veterans of which I have the greatest respect.

Thanks again to all who organized and took part in the WES.

See you all next month.

73,

Ron

From Chris WB9G, SKCC #9820

This was my first WES. I had a great time. Thanks for the QSOs. Great to hear fellow veterans out there. 73, Chris WB9G /V15

From John G0RDO, SKCC #2133T

Great time had here, but I wish 10m and 15m would open again to the USA etc. Didn't hear that many WES stations on the bands, but enough to keep me busy. Two QSO's on 15m - K2ARM/Pete and K2DEP/Steve. The other 9 QSO's all on 20m - OH7QR/Erkki, W5ZR/Bert, F4FGB/Rom, S57WJ/Gabor, F6HKA/Bert, EA5HEH/Toni, KO1U/Mark, AA5VE/Carl, and K9AAA/Dave. In keeping with the important date I used an RAF Air Ministry base station key from 1930 - 40's.

From Jim ND9M, SKCC #8233T

Fun contest as usual. I just got home from Diego Garcia, BIOT (VQ9/Chagos) a few hours before the end of WES, but was able to put up a 40M dipole and operate a while.

From Randy KX1NH, SKCC #1050T

Thank you to all of the veterans for their service. For this event I used mostly my military straight keys: Pictured in my soapbox photo are my South African/British KMK.2, Army Signal Cops Flame Proof (1918), K4VIZ swiper (not military), brass racer paddle (not used for SKCC), Czech Army key (favorite), German Baumuster T.1 (WWII), Lionel J-38 (WWII). Conditions on 40 on Friday were not good here but still had lots of fun meeting old friends. CU all next time...73

From CURT KB5JO, SKCC #2027

Nice sprint as always, next time will enter as QRPp

From Tony W4FOA, SKCC #641T

Great way to recognize and pay tribute to our wonderful veterans. Worked some excellent fists and some super signals. RTTY is creating more and more of a problem with QRM so found 40 meters, above 7.100 to be a good shelter from the "noise".

From Jack KK0I, SKCC #2370T

Another great event...and a nice tribute to Veteran's Day. Thanks for being out there folks...and thanks for your service. Look forward to the next one. 73, jack

From Dick K2HT, SKCC #5087T

Thanks to all the veterans for their service. Used a vibroplex champion bug that was a gift from W0SZV. Worked Bert F6HKA on three bands. U. S. Marshal Dillon must have been on duty because only worked 6 Missouri outlaws.

CU next sprint.


From Lee K1LEE, SKCC #7246C

Saturday night condx here in CT were really the pits - signals going nowhere. Sunday was better. Whatever the condx, sprints are always challenging and fun. Hats off to all the vets, particularly the career people. And thanks to all those that think up the WES bonus points - very creative! C u agn next sprint, Lee

From Paul VE1PVH, SKCC #7728

Thankyou to all Vets for the great freedom we enjoy.

Good WES, and got in 4 contacts as portable before it started to rain. Portable 10Watts with 2.5 metre whip antenna. 599 reports into NY with NW2K and W1DV. And 447 with W9DLN in WI and W4CUX in GA.

From Joe KD2JC, SKCC #710T

First I would like to thank all the Veterans for their service to their country. This was a nice sprint. 80 meters produced some new numbers for me. As Winter comes upon us maybe there will be more activity on the low bands. Divided between chores and Ham Radio. Thanks to all that worked me. 73.

From Mike N5YG, SKCC #6304T

Thanks to all the veterans that made all of this possible. Also, thanks to those that put this WES together. Of the 33 contacts made 16 were vets and W1DV had the most time with 27 years. To all the members, well done! 73 from AR, Mike

From Bert K6CSL, SKCC #4486

I only got to operate the last 2 hours due to family needs.

Conditions were good, with a wide range of distances from AZ and OR to the Mid West and GA. Very enjoyable 2 hours.

Bert, K6CSL


From Werner N8BB, SKCC #5433T

Put up 2 new fan dipoles for 80/40 and seemed to work very well. Worked some new members and worked some I haven't seen in a long time, tnx Dave W1DV. Very good weekend for 1 watt operation. Tnx to everyone, another fun weekend.

From Charlie KB1UOH, SKCC #7560T

Enjoyed the Sprint. Not much activity on 40 during the day Sunday.

From Roger KC4HCH, SKCC #7688T

Hail to the veterans

Great theme


From Pablo KP4SJ, SKCC #8843T

Was a very good WES. Many participants and work new Skcc members. Congratulation to my Amigos Veterans. Mark KO1U was very active and nice signal in 20 meters. My first WES QSO was with Amigo Bill KE3O from MD. Cu all next WES.///

From Dan W9DLN, SKCC #3635T

New antenna built and installed since last WES. Seems to work fine.

Had funbut was busy with lots of stuff so could not commit to being a power hitter.

Thanks to all the Veterans for their service. This was a nice tribute.


From Steve KG9HM, SKCC #8759

Just had a few minutes for playing radio this time. 5 watts from an MFJ9020 (20 meters) into an attic dipole about 30 feet up. Thank you to all the veterans for your service!!

From Ric KA3LOC, SKCC #660T

As always, WES was fun. Worked a few more 2xQRP QSO's. If there had not been thunderstorms early Sunday morning, I would have had an all time personal best. Thanks to all for may these SKCC events so much fun, and a special thanks to all the veterans for their service. Best 73 & God Bless. Ric KA3LOC #660T.

From Ron AC2C, SKCC #2748T

Conditions were very bad in the first few hours but improved significantly later Sunday.

From Ron AF5Q, SKCC #6072T

Wished I could have operated more but was ill for the sprint.

From Gerald WA5AFD, SKCC #8150T

Enjoyed the sprint although didn't get to participate very long. Thanks to all veterans who serve their country past and present. 73 and CUL

From Mike NZ1MT, SKCC #9305

As a first time entrant to the SKCC WES and new to CW I really enjoyed the WES. Conditions (QSB) were a little challenging. I now just need to build up my decode speed so I can increase my QSO total next time.

From John K8JD, SKCC #1395T

I managed to squeeze in a few hours Saturday night and Sunday morning for the event..

The vetrans theme was interesting. Most of the stations worked had more years of service than my 2. I was drafted in 1965 and served a year in Viet Nam.


From ED WB0CLL, SKCC #9600

it would be nice if the vets would sign /var for army,mr for marines,na for navy and ect. a lot of vets with over 40 yrs.

From Harold VE5BCS, SKCC #3946T

The day was for remberance and two football games and found time to work a few on 10-15-20. A fine day.

From Rick WU1V, SKCC #9293T

Had to work around a house guest this sprint, so only logged about 2 hours. Band conditions were fair to good on 20 meters where I worked. Propagation on this band hasn't been that good lately. Anyway, I did log contacts as far away as Finland, Brazil, and Washington State (I'm in Massachusetts). What counts is that I enjoyed the sprint and appreciated the opportunity to recognize the service of those members who have served in the armed forces.

Attaching a picture of me from 52 years ago when I was a Novice in North Dakota age 13.

From Garry VE5SG, SKCC #6154T

Used a FT-897 with power turned down to 5w setting. Tail end of a snow storm here, so lots of static noise. Not a lot of time available but sure did enjoy the few contacts that I got.

From RON N8KZH, SKCC #6593T

Fun WES. Great theme. Thanks to all who served and are serving now. God Bless

From RAY WB0PYF, SKCC #5169T

Good WES, worked QRP, 160m & 80m were open, then last few hours 40m was great. Thanks to all the Vets who have served our Country with honor, Freedom is not free, thank you for your sacrifice and for others who gave there life for us. We are truly blessed.

From BILL K6KQV, SKCC #2626T

Nice sprint, even though I could not participate for too long this time. Thanks to all our veterans for their service.

From Joe KF0XV, SKCC #3520T

Had a great time. Thanks to all that copied my 5 watt station. I didn't get to spend as much time as I wanted to but still was fun. Thank you to all the Vets for your service to this great country of ours even though they are doing their best to screw it up!

Ran the Flex-3000 @5W into a multiband dipole.

FT1000MP, AL811H, 500W, TH6DXX, dipole. Got back from a visit to my amplifier repairer N4UQ, delivering one Alpha amp and retrieving a repaired amp with less than two hours to go in the WES. No signals on 10 or 15M, but 20M was very good to most of the US, Central and South America, and 40 up above 7100 kHz was good to the eastern 2/3 of North America. Thanks for all QSOs. Enjoyed finding out which SKCCers were also veterans, particularly the ones who spent 20 or more years in the military (K4NVJ, AC2C, KH6OZ, AB7DG). Thanks to you all for your service. 73, John, K4BAI.

From Karen W4KRN, SKCC #4495T

Enjoyed the Sprint honoring all our Vets. 20m was working well, especially stateside. Made 7 contacts while mobile with a J36 leg key, which made it even more fun. Worked Bert F6HKA 599 signal both ways. Thanks for the qso's, cu in the next sprint.

From TONY W2HWW, SKCC #4488T

Conditions were not very good. Stayed on 20M most of the time. Hoped that my little signal with big bonus points (V20) would be heard more. Running a Softrock v6.3 RXTX and using a J-38 key.

From Chas K1PUB, SKCC #4101T

Great event, thanks to Pete, W1PNS, for coming up with the veterans theme. Be nice do it every November WES.

Had other commitments, not a lot of operating time, but enjoyed it when I could get on. Over half my QSOs were with other veterans, confirmed my sense that a lot of SKCC members are veterans. Many thanks to all of you who served.

From Mike VE3WMB, SKCC #120C

Almost forgot about the WES. I was playing indoors testing out my recently modified hombrew QRP Magloop and heard a few stations in the WES so I decided to give them a call. I worked Dan, W9DLN and Bert, W5ZR late Sunday with the indoor 3ft diameter loop while running 5W on 20m. Lots of fun. Next time I will try to get on the air for more of the WES. 73 Till next time.

P.S.

I have included a picture of my antenna.

A Nice way to celebrate Veterans Day! 10M was open for a few hours here. Many nice sigs on 20 the last 3 hours -- CU next month.. 73.ED

From Bob/v20 W0GAF, SKCC #6258

Great Veterans Day event. First time I've been able to spend a little time on WES for a long while. Also first time working on new 228' doublet antenna. WES q's this weekend got me to Centurion 743. 73 everyone!

From Ted K4UFT, SKCC #4289T

Not a lot of time to operate, but fun as always. Tried 5 Watts, but No Joy ... QRO to 100W.

From Doug N3PDT, SKCC #6861T

First off, thanks to all the vets and prior service folks for your service! Fun WES. My personal best so far. Bands were plain awful here on Saturday night. Stayed up late trying to eek out a few more points before bed, and retired thinking I was going to have an abysmal score. Sunday was great though, and even had a couple nice little runs on 15m. New Inverted L antenna really helped by allowing 80m and 160m operation.

Ran across 8 of my fellow Missouri Outlaws, worked three of them on two bands, and Eldon, W0SZV on three. Thanks again to all.

Station: Ten Tec Jupiter, 1948 Vibroplex Lightning, 148' Inverted L antenna.


From BRAD N5LUL, SKCC #3779C

Good time. Great people. This month I ran the Yaesu FT857D into a Mosley TA33M @ 40'. Used the trusty Winslow straight key. For the upcoming 2hr. sprint, I have the urge to break out the HW-16. hmmm...

From Eldon W0SZV, SKCC #4999T

Great Sprint. Got to work a lot more this time. 8 different contacts with the missouri outlaws. all contacts on 160.80,40 and 20m. nothing on 15 & 10m. Static level was horrible at start.

From Bert F6HKA, SKCC #6069T

Again another funny WES despiste poor conditions.

Thank you everybody and specially Veterans for bonus.

73 and see you soon. Bert


From Don KF7DS, SKCC #8281C

I could only manage 4 qso's on Saturday evening and finally gave up - can only listen to static for so long. I had to smile when I saw Jims/K6JF post on the sked page - he had managed only 9 qsos that night and was throwing in the towel. I would have been happy with 9.

Sunday obviously was better, and 15m opened up to the East Coast early afternoon, and was able to snag Julio/NP3CW quite easily - but, it all disappeared as quickly as it came.

Lotsa QSB and QRN. When I can only find Ed/W7GVE once during WES, things are challenged.

See you all next month! Best, Don KF7DS


From STEVE K2DEP, SKCC #9273T

Propogation conditions were pretty miserable at the beginning of the WES making contacts difficult. Had a lot of fun trying to pull in some of the contacts and had to use earphones to pick out the stations from the QRN/QRM. Did not get some of my regular contacts maybe because they stayed on 20M (can't go there yet), but I saw where 20M wasn't all that great either. Lost my transmit on my radio for about an hour the last two hours and found out that I had pushed the "MOX" button by mistake. Dahhh! Live and learn. Thanks to all to responded to my tiring calls on 10M, 15M, 40M and 80M. This was the first time I worked 80M and it was pretty good in the evenings. 73 to all and thanks to all my fellow Veterans for their service.

From mark KI0I, SKCC #6585T

Thank you to all who served our country.Good to hear so many vets in the sprint and see all the comments here on soapbox. Made me think of the past when we had no PC`s and internet to make it possible to thank so many people at once. Maybe someday we can resolve our problems via internet so only feelings get hurt and not soldiers! Had only a little time to op as deer season is on here in MO.Terrible QRN Sat. nite kept the fun short,Sun brought a cold front and rain most of the day so got a few S&P qso`s. A pretty weak efforrt from KI0I this time but was great to qso so many Vet`s in this sprint. Hooray for K9AAA for TAKING THE HILL FROM W9DLN!! Super effort Dave! 73 all God Bless our Vets Mark KI0I

From Larry K0LWV, SKCC #3571

A really fun event, lots of fellow veterans out there, I had a wonderful holiday, lots events and dinners going on so it took a little of my operating time but still squeezed in some time. 20 meters was excellent for both close in and DX. I didn't work a single fellow Missouri Outlaw but I did hear Doug N3DPT but he couldn't hear me, it seems that the VEE beam is better at recieving than transmitting and literature I've read proves that.

Rig: IC718 100W, antenna longwire VEE beam, 135 ft per leg up 40 ft fed with cox and a 12/1 balun. Key Bencher Straight key RJ-1.

My military service was 12 years: 4 years Air Force and 8 years Army, 3 times in and 3 times basic training, the last time I went to basic training I was 40 years old.

In the military I was a radio operator, senior personnel specialist, and a Nike/Hercules electronics mechanic.


From Jim N5JPX, SKCC #8672

Thanks to SKCC for making veteran status special and thanks to all the vets for their service. I only wish the bands had been as kind Saturday night. The FT-817ND was doing the best it had but Saturday night was tough. Thanks to all who pulled me out of the noise. Sunday was a bit better but I still had S9 QRN on the little radio. A lot of fun, as always, and an inspiring event.

FT-817ND to an 80 meter loop up 45 feet.

73,

From Jim W1RO, SKCC #1379

Great event. Worked around the family schedule. Just wish I could add into my Veterans score the 20 years I served. Thanks again for keeping it going.

From Bill W4CUX, SKCC #5497T

Another great sprint. Worked QRP again using my PFR3. Tried calling CQ on the upper bands with the FT-950, but no QSOs. Saturday nite I had a handful of contacts on 20 & 40 meters, but things were rather spotty. Sunday morning 20m was rocking. More Canadian QSOs than usual. Really good propagation to the Pacific NW as well as NE US. Thanks to all the vets who participated. Looking forward to the next event.

From RON NT8P, SKCC #7312T

Gotta love that RTTY. Completly wiped me out Sat night (4). I put this in 100 watts catagory, but one was 25w and one 30, all the rest were 5 watts qrp. Bert and Szabi were my only DX. Both were my qrp 5w. Werner N8BB had a pipeline in here with 1 watt. Tnx for the contacts. I'm down to abt 5 points for 2xQRP Later Ron E

From Rick K7CHS, SKCC #8573T

I was portable with small antenna and had a high noise level. Did manage to get Bert, F6HKA late Saturday night.

From George N2JNZ, SKCC #2836T

The K1 is in the shop with a blown final after the Sweeps so I used the Norcal 40A with 1 watt. Saturday night was impossible with RTTY (band plan ???) and Sunday was very busy with family stuff. Only had 7025 to 7070 to play with so went down around 7035. Out of the 4 stations I worked 3 were QRP !!! Got Pete W1PNS , Ron KM4VX and Werner N8BB (both of us were 1 watt !!!) Used the TAC bug which need a bit of TLC on its adjustment but I got by with it. Without the D*&N RTTY would have been more fun !!! Thanks all !!!!

My respect for all the veterans for the great service to the country.

I almost missed the event. Thanks to Pablo KP4SJ that gave me a phone call to remember this WES.

A lot of activity. Worked mostly in 10,15 and 20 mtrs and only one contact in 40M.

A lot of activity seen on all bands.

Is nice to read all Soapbox comments and seen some nice photos of diferent keys,shacks and antennas. Good luck to all. Julio


From WALT W5ALT, SKCC #103T

I only had time to 1/2 an hour after my return from PZ-land. Maybe next month I'll have more operating time before the trip to CP-land.

From Bob WL7WH, SKCC #2940T

As usual another fun event, but not much time to operate.

Should have read the rules for this event, scores would be better!!! Thanks to all who called me!!


From John VK4TJ, SKCC #4474T

Once again, the lemmings all migrated to 40 mtrs early in the piece, making it a very slow WES for DX participants.

From LARRY KC0M, SKCC #8177

Only one hour to work this spring but it was a great hour.

From Dave W1DV, SKCC #1433T

Sorry - forgot to count the C and T bonus points; resubmitting score. Once again - GREAT WES. nice work all concerned

Fun WES, could have done with fewer Rtty's.

I'm a C with a V21 and a V23 in the family. A big thanks to all the vets.

I used the Hungarian and Czech Army keys during the event.

From Randy KB4QQJ, SKCC #3508T

Thanks to all those who served and are serving. And thanks most of all to those who paid the ultimate price and got us home safely.

I played for about two hours using an FX-2 and prototype antenna from LnR Precision. Ran 1-3 watts into the 10/20/40 multiband prototype and had a blast.

It was great to run up on Dave, W1DV. Haven't heard Dave in a while and it was a fun chat.

Short time to operate, too nice a day Sunday, good bonus choice!

From Bernard/V2 F5DE, SKCC #6247T

In spite of 4 hours only free time, I was glad to have my 35th participation in the WES !

25 QSO were done, mostly on the high part of the 40m band (7115 +/-) where my GP antenna is not very well tuned.

For the little story, I was employed as a Navy telegraphist operator during my military service (1968-1969), thanks to my radioamateur CW license (1964) !

Thank you all and see you soon, 73 de F5DE.

Great WES and thank all of you guys for your service. I got to work Gabor S57WJ on 20 meters on 50 watts and a wire dipole. He had a good signal into East Texas. I got Ed W7GVE on 3 bands again! Hope to see you all next month.

From Greg WA1VIL, SKCC #443T

Only got to work some on Sunday in between yard work and a little football watching. Got fooled big time-worked Bert F6HKA in the morning on 10 meters using the FT817 and a slinky dipole in the attic and then nothing-finally the light went on and went down to the real shack in the cellar and ran the G5RV-much better. I actually got a run going on 7.114 with a few 2xQRP in the log. Needless to say some parallel dipoles are in the attic's future. Thanks to all the vets for their service and to those who make SKCC go!

72/73!


From Bill N0UMP, SKCC #659T

Seemed to have very bad band conditions on Saturday and had to work for the few q's that I got. Sunday was much better and I had a really good time. Thanks to all those vets out there. I have a daughter who is deployed at this time and I'm thinking of her and all others. Cul es 73, Bill

From Jerry K9PMV, SKCC #1438T

This WES theme was very patriotic and certainly timely. As a veteran of the Viet Nam era, it was especially interesting to work veterans from other countries. Wish I could have spent more time on the air but I was busy Friday, Saturday and Sunday with my American Legion Post. 73 to all and see you at the next event

From Dave W3NP, SKCC #3182T

The Veterans Day weekend and week are always very hectic for me as I am a member of our local Vietnam Veterans Chapter Color Guard and just in the last 3 days we have been in a parade on Saturday, a ceremony on Sunday afternoon, and today we did a presentation at a local school.

Needless to say, I didn't have a lot of time to operate and with the horrible condx on Sat nite I am very happy to have done as well as I did. I was counting on about 6 hours Sat eve but gave it up around 10 when 20 left, 40 was full of quasi-RTTY signals, and 80 was noisy with almost no activity.

I had a few hours Sunday afternoon before eve church and that time yielded most of my QSO's - some on 40 but most on 20.

From Curt WA2JSG, SKCC #3018T

Had to spend much of the weekend repairing my storage shed after Sandy Frankenstorm decided to throw a tree at it, so I could only make a handful of contacts. Can't complain though, as many not far from here still have no electric power, and many have lost everything, so our hearts and prayers go out to them. In any case, rig here IC-703, 5 watts from a 12v battery to a Butternut vertical. Kent Straight Key.

My uncle was in the Canadian 48TH Highlanders from 1939 to 1945. I often wish I had learned more about that when he was still with us. Thanks to all the Vets then and now. 73 - Brian

From Peter AK3X, SKCC #7217T

Saturday evening on 40M was a bust. RTTY contest on the lower portion and weak signals in the old Novice portion. I usually manage a few contacts on 40 on Saturday, but not this month. 20M was better on Sunday afternoon,, and 40 meters yielded a few later in the afternoon/evening. At 2340, just as K1LEE was passing his info, the bottom dropped out and Lee went from 599 to nothing in 5 seconds. I would have been one of the last to work him for his C...congrats on your T, Lee... sorry I could not contribute to your effort. As usual, 3 watt Small Wonder Labs DSW series rigs and I used both my Champion bug and my Speed-X key. 73/72 till next month. Peter

Conditions were not good here Saturday but made up for it Sunday afternoon. The picture is of me in front of the U. S. Navy Omaha Beach monument on our October tour of Normandie and Paris.

From Noel K8NB, SKCC #3112T

Busy weekend of house projects, but I got on for a few contacts. Using my latest project radio, old Heathkit HW-16 with the HG-10B vfo. Couple that with my 1965 champion and you have a pretty common late '60s novice setup. Thank you again to all the veterans.

From Phil KB0ETU, SKCC #4542T

Oops for my score. Resubmitted with a corrected score. Not as high - bummer! Only heard activity on 20 & 40 meters. Many thanks fo fellow vets. 72/73 Phil/V20 Army

From Bob AK4LP, SKCC #9308

Lot's of fun! I also like the idea that's being floated on the Yahoo group about extending the hours so the full weekend is covered. Sunday is a busy day, so adding more hours on Saturday would be nice!
