Soapbox


From Don KF7DS, SKCC #8281C

This had some of the more interesting band conditions over the recent past. 10m and 6m openings, and 80m really awake late Saturday night. And, with all of the contests going on simultaneously made Saturday night, as Doug/N3PDT best described as, a "nuthouse".

Best, Don KF7DS


From Thomas W7/OV5T, SKCC #7344T

Worked this one from my hotel room in Scottsdale, Arizona, using an inverted V in a small tree outside my room, with the KX3 and 5 watts.

Apologies for the QLF keying, I didn't bring any straight keys and was using the KX3's paddles configured as straight key, switching between pounding one side and trying to use it like a side swiper, neither of which produced anywhere near perfect CW!


From Jim K5BZH, SKCC #447T

February is the month that we honor our presidents. Anybody for considering a Presidential Bonus for the next WES? Points based on copied operator first names if they are presidential?

Names like Bill, George, Jack, Jerry, John, or Ron might be worth 5 points. Names like Ike or Lyndon ought to bring 25 points. Ulysses has to be worth more. How much should Barrack be worth?


From Paul NG7Z, SKCC #802T

Another great WES but was duty bound to do the NAQP as part of a team. Got on again Sunday morning before church and then afterwards. Lots of activity and many high numbers worked. Good to see so much enthusiasm by the newer members. CU in the SKS. 73 Paul NG7Z

From Dave NE5DL, SKCC #5081T

Rough working round the NAQP ops, but there was 12 hours clear to roam

From VADEN NN4K, SKCC #9575

Time conflicts and distractions limited the time I participated. Thanks for all the Q's. FT2000, Yagi and 40 meter delta loop, less than 100 watts.

From Ron W6FPS, SKCC #2126

Only made a few contacts. With this weekends band conditions it was a good weekend for watching football. And to top it off Green Bay lost.

73,

Ron


From Ed N7EDK, SKCC #7534

A busy WES with K3Y in progress, I'm burned out chasing contacts, long weekend ! But fun as always, and you can't beat the practice you get from all this !

Used the K2 as the work horse at 5 watts, for the WES, used the higher watts for the K3Y ccontacts.

So see everyone next month for the FEB WES, and thanks again to my contacts ! Good luck to all in the K3Y, only 18 days left !! HNY to all......Ed


From dennis WB8WTU, SKCC #217T

Great fun as always. The NA contest made things interesting. Nice to hear some new numbers but haven't worked a 10K yet. My score may be low but the fun-factor was high. CU next month.

From Doug N3PDT, SKCC #6861T

Well, the first WES of the year is an exciting one, isn't it? What a fun madhouse! Nice to have decent propagation, too. Very cool to see all the awards announcements popping up all day long. Sure keeping the awards managers busy - big thanks to them all! Also a big thanks to Thomas, who makes the awesomeness quotient of the results pages peg the meter.

Worked a lot of "old friends", a number of newer members, a LOT of DX, got jumped by ZS6JBJ twice (thanks John), /KL7 2 or 3 times (thanks Phil), worked Bert F6HKA a record 5 bands (thanks Bert), while only snagging Ed W7GVE once, and collecting a small handful of fellow Missouri Outlaws (thanks Eldon, Bill, Dave, and Ray). Totally missed our ringleader Slim and one of his top cohorts, Mark KI0I. Thanks to one and all for a great kick off to the SKCC year.


From Jim K2MIJ, SKCC #5941T

Yaesu FT-817nd @ 1 Watt/Delta Loop

Only worked the WES on Sunday.The bands were in excellent shape and my 1 Watt signal produced some fantastic reports. worked stations on 15 through 80 meters, Don't know why I never checked 10! I never read the rules for this sprint so I had to go back and read through all my chicken scratch notes to find all the T endorsement numbers so I could submit my score... A big thanks to all who pulled my tiny signal out, See ya in the next one!


From JOHN K8JD, SKCC #1395T

got an hour to wk the WES n Saturday afternoon and later Saturday night I got in 2 more hours.Gor several QSOs on 80 and 160M. Finished off Sunday afternoon with my final 3 hours of operating.

Had unusual success on 20 M Sunday and even got 2 QSOs on 15M.


From JIM W1RO, SKCC #1379C

Bands were terrible. Lucky I got any stations.

From TOM WA4ZOF, SKCC #8649

Good CW fun as always tnx to every one I worked

Tom WA4ZOF


From Dick K2HT, SKCC #5087T

Thanks for the QSO's and special thanks to all the K3Y ops.

From Epe HC6EP, SKCC #7163T

Im teaching Linux two full weekends a month in Cuenca, 300kms south of my qth. today I finished at 12M GMT-5 and drove almost 5 hours home (driving around a heavily hilly terrain with fog is not nice indeed), I arrived home at 5pm, and immediately rushed to the shack to try to make some QSOs for the WES even when Im sooo tired. Well I was kind of slow trying to separate dots from dashes. kids yelling, asking me to correct their English Language assignments, the dog licking my feet, my wife asking me to park the car correctly... a mess .. anyway: I manage to make ~20.. nice. Sorry for my mistakes: I can not do talking and CW at once very good.

Here is a picture my daugter took: me in a QSO with AI0Q as far as I remember. This is my temporary shack, until wifey decides were to "move me and the shack". You can easily see the flex-1500, the laptop mounted over a shoebox and a chinese vhf rig box.. in order to have a better wifi signal... there are also some toys kids drop around when the shack is alone.. sri people my time is limited.. Im doing my best.. and I only using a 20mts dbl bazooka in my new qth, until I get some time to build a hex or to QSY the 3ele yagi from the old QTH

From Art KB1NHV, SKCC #2775T

Was great to work stations on all bands and multiple K3Y stations on multiple bands. Using SKCC-77 Straight Key.

From Russ K0LUW, SKCC #1702T

Had a lot of fun as usual..Big turnout on the SKED page. Counted 46 at one point. The rules were a bit confusing but I think I got it right..With the long hours, there was some thinning of active stations on the bands..

From Randy KX1NH, SKCC #1050T

Great band conditions here. While the NAQP was on, I used the SKCC alternate (old Novice) frequencies for QRM free contacts (7.114, 21.114, 28.114 - good places to operate during contest weekends. Worked Art WK2S on 5 bands-thanks Art. Biggest surprise was when Bert F6HKA answered my CQ on 80m just before I shut down Sunday. Also got K3Y/AS finally -thanks AVI !! Newest members worked were Jim, W5EST #10176...ED, KR3E #10071...and Tim, WA5TGK #10004. Welcome to SKCC and hope you'll be back for more. 73 and CU all next WES 73 Randy KX1NH

From Mike N5YG, SKCC #6304T

Wx and NAQP were both factors on Sat but Sunday was good. Fun and enjoyable, thanks to all! 73 de AR!

From John G0RDO, SKCC #2133T

My meagre scores continue, but I don't care ! Great fun again. I was going to use my Vibroplex Twin Lever bug key, but chickened out and used my trusty Marconi PS No213A straight key instead. Worked K3Y9 (Dan W9DLN), 4X1WQ (Avi), K3Y/VE9CRM (Club Stn), KX1NH Randy), KO1U (Mark), W3YX Scott) & K3Y/8 (Adrian W8TQE.

Hard to hear stations with QRN here in the middle of town. Rig - Yaesu FT2000, 100w to a small Cushcraft MA6V vertical.

From Steve AI9IN, SKCC #8759

I have to come and go over the weekend, so I like the extended hours. Gives me a better chance of getting a couple QSOs. 5 Watts from my MFJs into dipoles.

From Roger KC4HCH, SKCC #7688T

The extended format is great !

From Bernard F5DE, SKCC #6247T

What a nice week-end, looking for WES QSO and K3Y/x stations !

Not many QSO but a long time in front of the radio to listen to weak signals and sometimes do fb contacts !

Thank you everybody and see you soon !


From Wes W1LIC, SKCC #1142T

The highlight of the weekend was my contact with VU2LID, my first India QSO in over 45 years of hamming! And I'm using only a Hustler mobile antenna! Always nice to work SKCC members I haven't worked before!

From PHIL KB0ETU, SKCC #4542T

Used my MFJ-9020 with G5RV. Only had a few hours to work the sprint. Another fun sprint and looking forward to the next one already. 72/73 Phil

From Jeff W8JRA, SKCC #4757T

Lots of fun working WES QRP using Ten-Tec R4020 powered by 8 alkaline D cells and my SKCC Pro Pump key. My first time logging with computer. Software: AC2C's SKCCLogger. Thanks to all who dug me out of the noise including K3Y/1/2/4/8/9 and /0.

From Werner N8BB, SKCC #5433T

Gave the KX3 a short workout and was amazed at all the 599 and 579 reports, should have started earlier. Thanks to all the new ones and even one old one from Eldon, 3 years between contacts? Need to get more active here. thanks again to all for pulling out the 1 watt signal.

N8BB's soapbox image


From Scott N3JJT, SKCC #255T

I did not spend much time on WES. I stayed away from the radio during the NAQP. Had some other things going on around here also. Pete, tnx for the spot. Ran my K2 at 100 with a Begali Spark.

From Roger W4LDA, SKCC #4789C

Only a few hours to operate on Sunday evening. Twenty meters was great!

From CARL K9EEI, SKCC #5346

From Jerry K9PMV, SKCC #1438T

What a wonderful Morse Code weekend! Between the WES & NAQP, the ole fist got a workout. Much fun. Thanks to SKCC and all who participated. 73 and see you next time.

From Al WB4JJJ, SKCC #9459

A generally good event. The K3Y business didn't seem to be particularly well thought out. Having to peruse several long documents to determine hopefully who a K3Y station OP was to see if he had been worked B4, hoping he was still there, then being told you had already worked him took away from the fun.

From Bill K6KQV, SKCC #2626T

Good to see some of the newer members on the W.E.S.

Tnx to the K3Y/X stations. Tnx to all who participated and made it a fun time.


From Joe KK5NA, SKCC #1923T

Only a couple NA QSO going on

From DAVE N9ZXL, SKCC #7114T

From Charlie KB1UOH, SKCC #7560T

QRP was even tougher this time with all the K3Y activity. Still fun and will keep enjoying it. Charlie

From George N2JNZ, SKCC #2836T

Had a great time with the Century 21 !!! Worked 25 with the K1 in the NAQP and used the C21 for WES. Great to work Gordon , N6WK on 15 and managed to work buddies W4KRN and WA2JSG !! Worked Jean , VA2SG on 2 bands as well as W9DLN , K1PUB , W4FOA , KX1NH and F6HKA !! Tried to zerobeat as well as possible but a few were off. Lots of fun with the C21 !! Thanks all !!!!

Great WES I thought adding the extra time was great I have time in the early evening to operate and with other contest on it worked out great please keep the extra time.

73's cu next Wes Dave W0YZZ


From Peter AK3X, SKCC #7217T

Missed last month's WES, so first experience with expanded time. Really didn't change my score very much... hard to find "free" time. Had a good time as usual. See you all next month. 72 Peter

From ED W7GVE, SKCC #729T

The NA contest sure made life miserable for a while, but we did well when they let us have our small slice of freq back.-- I tried 14.100 to 14.150 for awhile but no luck--- Several new callsigns worked-- It was fun as usual

CU next month.. 73/ED/W7GVE

From Alan KI6FCT, SKCC #9947C

Was great motivation for me to figure out mobile setup. All 57 Wes QSO's were on the road to and from my daughter's wedding in UT.

From JOHN K3Y/4, SKCC #3280

FT1000MP, Alpha 78, 1 KW, TH6DXX, dipole. Enjoyed using the K3Y/4 anniversary call for almost the last six hours of the WES. Was surprised that the special call didn't bring more callers, though. I suspect the added 12 hours on Saturday meant that more members were tired out before the last part of Sunday's contest period. Also, there was competition from NFL playoff games on TV. No WES calls heard on 10M. 15M was weak, but QSOs were possible. 20 and 40M were pretty good with some European DX (and UA0 on 20) and both coasts easily workable. A lot of the QSOs on 20 and 15 were with fairly close in stations on backscatter with my beam SW. Thanks for all the QSOs. I will be K3Y/4 again in the NAQCC Sprint on Wednesday night local date in US and hope to work many of you again then. 73, John, K4BAI.

Good fun.

From Joe W1HFF, SKCC #6309C

Enjoyed the extra hours. Would like to see the two hour sprint go to four hours. Thanks everyone.

From John AC8JW, SKCC #7860

First WES worked as QRP.

From Ray KJ4LEN, SKCC #6956T

Only got to sprint on Sunday but pretty good propagation and good participation. I used my FT840 @ 75W into inverted vees at 40' and my Vibroplex original. I was happy to give out T6 to everyone. See everyone next time. Ray

From Steve KB9DFE, SKCC #8806C

Not a big score, but finally worked enough Tribunes to upgrade from my Centurion status. Always fun events.

From Curt WA2JSG, SKCC #3018T

Nice WES. Icom IC-703, 5w into a Butternut vertical from a 12v battery. Kent Straight Key.

From mark KI0I, SKCC #6585T

worward to the next WES.

From Allen KA5TJS, SKCC #5172T

The weather was bad Sunday morning but I had fun later and worked some folks I had not worked before. Thanks to Mark KO1U for my first 10 mtr contact on a WES. Mostly New England was getting in here on 15 meters. Had a blast.

From Greg WA1VIL, SKCC #443T

What a fun WES! Spent too much time trying to work the remaining elusive K3Y/AS-OC-SA instead of focusing on making QSOs. Lots of signals on the air from 160-6 and the melody of a Command Set on 80 meters however briefly! Thanks to all who dug out my QRP signal and those who make SKCC go!

From Bill N0UMP, SKCC #659T

Didn't get to operate as much as I usually do but had fun none the less. 73 all and cul...Bill 73

From Mike NZ1MT, SKCC #9305

Only had time this weekend to quickly jump on the HB1B QRP radio for one QSO. I hope I got that T bonus multiplier correct - 73 Mike

From Szabi VA2FDT, SKCC #9505T

Very limited time this weekend, but still a lot of fun! 73/72! Szabi

From Joe WS9E, SKCC #3859T

Not much time this weekend but I got on several times and noted lots of activity on 20 and 40. The club has gotten big enough that I actually heard two pileups where many club members were answering CQs at the same time. Fun!

The expanded format is great. Let's keep it.


From Nat PS7HD, SKCC #8094T

I'm working near to my cottage in the Sierra Doctor .. only operated on from 16:00 on Sunday, but I got to the end, I heard a lot of people, it was a party, I could not talk to anyone, incredible, HI. Elecraft K1 @ 5w, dipoles 20 es 40m, straight key. 72 Nat PS7HD

From Rick N5RB, SKCC #8994

I had fun. I like the 24 out of 36 hour format as it gives me a bigger window of time to choose when to participate.

From Jim N7RCS, SKCC #8262

My first SKCC Sprint. Really enjoyed it! Hadn't been on a straight for many years.

From Alan WA1AR, SKCC #4079T

Not much luck with an antenna on the ground.

Need to get out and do some work. Watching football is not helping. Lucky I can listen to the action at half time.

Alan


From CURT KB5JO, SKCC #2027C

Used an Eico 723 at 40W out, listening on Drake 2B, no QSK. I remain confused by the rules so didn't count the K3Yx calls. Always enjoy WES.

From Harold VE5BCS, SKCC #3946T

i WAS PLEASED TO WORK SOMEONE ON ALL BANDS.BUT NOT A LOT OF RADIO TIME

From Ken VE7KBN/W7, SKCC #5533T

Had to revert to QRO this month- using Buddipole vertical in

a very challenging antenna location.


From Keith WD8AFB, SKCC #7196T

At least I had 15 mintues to get on the air! Isn't there some kind of certificate for the minimum number of qsos!? :-)

From Lee K1LEE, SKCC #7246T

Fine WES, as usual. Seemed to be some confusion about how T endorsements were sent. Also with K3Y calls. But condx good in CT and lots of familiar fists. Looking forward to the next one! Vy 73 to all, Lee K1LEE

From Ray K9EYT, SKCC #7941T

Portable from Tarpon Springs, FL. Antenna ground

Had a good time thanks for the QSO,s

From Steve N1FPG, SKCC #9934

I was a casual participant between honeydoos. The NA Sprint dampened the fun for me.I''m now half way toward the Century!

From Rick WU1V, SKCC #9293T

Had a great time with my new FT-450D. My first sprint at QRP, worked 31 states, 2 provinces, and 4 DX countries at 5 watts, and got generally very good RST reports. Only worked a total of around 6 hours (really appreciate the 36-hour window). Also made 5 2xQRP contacts. I used the SKED page, which netted me around a dozen QSOs. Glad to see my sigs from the Boston area reached the US west coast and western Europe. Didn't hear any South America or Asia this time around. 72 & 73 to all, Rick

From JOHN KW4JS, SKCC #4800C

Tks fer the qso's.

KW4JS . .


From Jim N5JPX, SKCC #8672C

Lots of fun as always and very busy. Not many contacts but the bands were very busy with all the contests. hard to compete with 5 watts but a lot of fun to try. Love the extended time. Thanks to all who pulled my signal out of the mud and to the SKCC leadership for making this such a fun group. FT-817ND to 80 meter loop up 45 feet. 73, Jim

From Bill W9AX, SKCC #9733

Work, weather and time kept me off the air, this time.

From Nick VE3EIB, SKCC #9760

After 32 years of inactivity, this is a great way to get back to HAM radio. Just like old times with a TS-820S and J-38. Great fun. Will do it again.

From Joe KF0XV, SKCC #3520T

I had to work most of the weekend and didn't get to get in as much time as I would of liked. Had fun though and thats all that matters.

Rig: Flex 3000 running 5 watts

Ant: Dipole


From Gary K9ZMD, SKCC #891T

It has been a long while since I last played in an SKCC sprint. In the meantime, WES scoring sure has gotten complicated. I thought I'd need to borrow some of my wife's fingers and toes to total up those special Tribune bonus points . . . until I realized I hadn't yet removed the WARC band contacts made during my K3Y/7 shifts. Anyway, it is good to have antennas strung up and be back in action. Looking forward to the next sprint now. 73

From Dan W9DLN, SKCC #3635T

Thanks K9ZMD and K1NNJ for 12M QSOs

From Chas W9SAY, SKCC #1158T

Looking at the Tribune Bonus of others, I can see I don't understand it. :-)

From bob K2OGT, SKCC #5266T

thought when operating wes the k3y didnot count thus i ran two logs one for wes other for k3y/ had fun any way bob

From Rick K0KEX, SKCC #5220T

Another fun "WES" with some great QSO's. January marks my 3rd year with the SKCC. I want to acknowledge the group for what I have learned and the many friends I have met thru the SKCC activities. Welcome to new members, looking forward to QSO's with you. Thank you to all the K3Y op's also..great job...!!!

The pix, two Vibroplex "Blue Racers" the top one is mine, the other is one I rebuilt for a local lady. It belonged to her grand father. The serial numbers are 27 numbers apart and ended up on my work bench.

Only got a few minutes in hear and there. Not sure I got the scoring right either.. that was different, fun but different.

Hope to get more time next WES.

From Chas K1PUB, SKCC #4101T

Limited time, operated about 6 hours as K3Y/1. Thanks all for QSOs, fun event. I like the extended operating hours.

73,

Chas


From Jim ND9M, SKCC #8233T

It was a fun event as always, but even more so with the K3Y stations in the mix too!

From Les WB5JWI, SKCC #5013T

Really like the 36 hour sprint; I got more op time than would have been possible for the 24 hour sprint. Had a real ball and a lot of fun.

From Brian K7TKT, SKCC #6695C

I had a good time putting K3Y/7 on the air during the WES. The K3Y logging and call conversion make the January WES complicated enough so I didn't bother trying to keep track of the T bonus. That would be a nice theme for another month.

Thanks for the QSOs and 73, Brian


From Emigdio WA3RF, SKCC #8906T

Great WES as always with a lot of K3Y station activity.
