Soapbox


From STEVE KE7WAV, SKCC #5500

Ran QRP for abt 15 minutes and got a contact in before I had to get back to drywalling. Tnx for for the fun.

From John G0RDO, SKCC #2133T

Wow ! Good fun as usual. I was amazed that I could hear the same few stations calling CQ all through the 36 hours.

That few must have great antennas directed at the UK !

I used a really old morse key for this weekend WES. I name it the "Most Beautiful Morse Key In The World" - An English key by C.F.Varley and made in 1858.

From jerry N0JRN, SKCC #8701T

Well, didn't have a lot of time to work this WES. Grand kids and soccer season is here. Had a lot of fun for time I did get to play. Hopefully see you all next month. 73 Jerry

From Steve N1FPG, SKCC #9934

I had a fun time casually working WES and watching the snow pile up.Getting closer to C all the time.

From Rock NE7D, SKCC #665T

Really enjoyable to work members with numbers spanning from low 2-digits to high 4-digits! And special to see Bonus numbers in the 50's. If I could use my accumulated married years, I might be among them! I didn't have a lot of time to play, but certainly had fun making new contacts and saying hello to many old SKCC friends. Tnx to those who answered my CQ's -- including a fair number of QRpers.

73, Rock NE7D


From Mike KI1U, SKCC #2679

Worked K6ELQ, #10250C, for the last one I needed for Centurion Award.

From KD WY5R, SKCC #10134

I was able to get over the 100 mark to submit my Centurion application. I thought I have been married a long time at 36 years. I think everyone I worked had been married longer! Looking forward to another WES.

From Dave WD8KRV, SKCC #3746

My first WES in quite a while. Mostly hunt and pounce (and all but one QSO on 20 meters), but worked a small pileup at the very end of the sprint. Thanks for all the FB QSO's. 73,Dave

From Mike KC2EGL, SKCC #553T

After a long haul without my computer and three weeks into recovery from shoulder surgery I finally got back on the air. Trying to send with a straight key is still a bit rough at this point. But I still enjoyed trying to chase down some fellow SKCC'ers. Thanks to the three who worked me. And to those who tried to copy my QRP with out any luck. Hope to see you on the radio again soon.

From Mike K0MC, SKCC #5241T

Had a great time. Qrp on 20/40/80m. Good signals from all. Tnx 73/72

K0MC


From Steve AI9IN, SKCC #8759

Most action on 20 meters this weekend, until 40 meters got going right near the end. MFJ 9020 and 9040 running 5 Watts into dipoles. QRP rules! Thanks to all!

From Szabi VA2FDT, SKCC #9505T

Didn`t spend a whole lot of time again this WES. Did have a lot of fun with it tho.Met some new members and worked a lot of familiar ones. Some of you guys been married a looong time! Thanks for all the Q`s and hope to see ya in the next SKS. 73 Mark

From Charlie KB1UOH, SKCC #7560T

It was a lot of fun working the WES QRP. I enjoyed seeing how long fellow SKCC,ers have been married. I look forward to the next WES

73 to all. Charlie


From Jon K1NV, SKCC #2609T

I've been having a problem with the Yaesu FT-450, so had to change rigs and discovered the WES during the last half hour. Running 5 watts, I was surprised to work six stations including WL7WH in AK plus AL, GA, WI, and AZ. Thanks for listening for my tiny signal, guys! May QRP isn't so tough after all. I didn't know what the number was after the name, so couldn't add my "20" to scores. Not enough stations worked to spell the holiday name nor did I hear W1AW in snowbound CT.

From Jim N5JPX, SKCC #8672T

I love these weekend get-togethers! Saturday night only 40 and 80 were open and both were quite noisy. Sunday the bands were in good shape here but thunderstorms (in February!) had me pulling the plug a few times. My wife has the flu so if I wanted to turn my \45 into a \46 next year, I had to take care of the sick as well. Thanks Rick, N5RB for the 15 meter contact. 6.8 miles away and we were finally able to connect! Thank you to all who patiently listened to my 5 watts signal and special thanks to the folks who put these weekends together. 73, Jim

From Dick K2HT, SKCC #5087T

Thanks for the QSO's. Lot of noise and RTTY QRM in Missouri. Made contacts on 5 different bands which I think is a first for this station.

From LARRY KC0M, SKCC #8177

A beautiful day in the Ozarks so only work the WES for a few hours. Had a great time and I always look forward to the WES. 73 Larry KC0M 8177

From Mike N5YG, SKCC #6304T

I hope RTTY enjoyed 40 mtrs. Still, lots of fun and many years of relationships noted, well done! Thanks to all and 73 from AR!

From Ed N7EDK, SKCC #7534C

Another fun WES with the KX3 at 5 watts and the Vibroplex Bug ! Was able to work 15/20/40 and 80 meters this time around.

Installed a new 6-40 meter end-fed antenna on Sat afternoon as a 31' vertical, used it the rest of the WES, it worked great, better than my G5RV jr. at 25'.

Still used the Buddipole vertical for 80 meters thou.

I think I've found a great portable in this new end-fed antenna,it works well with the KX3 tuner at QRP power !

Thanks again to all my contacts, and looking forward to next month........73.


From Lee K1LEE, SKCC #7246T

Bands from CT were weird - hot for five minutes then dead - all bands except 15. There sure are lots of old-timers in our ranks - years in the 40s and 50s were common. Did this remind you guys to buy that valentine? Or do you still buy one after 50 years?? Thanks to all the fb ops, especially the smooth ones on the bugs - a real pleasure to hear a fine bug fist. Vy 73 to all - see you next time, Lee K1LEE

From Mike KI4WXI, SKCC #6930

Hey, everyone! Glad to work this contest (even if I only got on the air for thirty minutes). I'm happy to announce that I upgraded my license to General Class this past Saturday. Thanks for all the likes on Facebook.

From Joe KD2JC, SKCC #710T

WOW! I really enjoyed this one. Sunday afternoon on 15 meters was great. Lots of stations. Also worked some DX (G0RDO, F6HKA, DL9YCS, ZS6JBJ, LW3EX) thanks guys, plus a few of our neighbors to the North, and WL7WH. Thanks to all that worked me. Used the Elecraft K2 (70w) and the Vibroplex Champion and the J-38. 73.

From Don KF7DS, SKCC #8281C

Best WES conditions in a while, and 15m was very productive. Lots of new numbers, and finished the afternoon off with a qso from Walt/LW3EX...made my day. Broke in my new VizKey horizontal paddle and love it.

Best, Don KF7DS

Had a bit of time on Sunday to work a few stations. Tried 1 watt QRPp this month. Rig was Small Wonder Labs SW40+, 1 watt on 40 meters to dipole up 40 ft. Had a great time. Thanks to all who made the effort to hear me. See you next month.

From Slim WA0BGV, SKCC #5465T

Thanks to N5YG, Mike in Hot Springs, AR.... the only call I worked with a Y in it for the VALENTINES DAY bonus. I worked 5 of my fellow Mo Outlaws... K0LWV..KI0I..WD0ECO..W0SZV and N3PDT(I think I detected that Johnson Viking hooked to your key, Doug)

Most of my heavy work came in the latter hours of the time alloted and as always the sprint seems to end just when things are getting good. Hi Hi

73 de Slim/52 for this sprint.


From Steve K2DEP, SKCC #9273T

Didn't have a lot of time to spend on this WES. What with all the QRN I guess I didn't miss much. Enjoyed the DX and West Coast contacts this go around. See you all next time. 73

From Ron W6FPS, SKCC #2126

Conditions not to good in Southern California. I only worked a few. Tom K4ZGB came through the best of all with a 599+. With condition what they were I decided go out and work on getting my horizontal loop up a little higher. Maybe that will bring in a few more signals next time.

I hope those of you in the northeast made it through the storm Okay. It looked pretty nasty on the news reports.

And thanks again to the organizers of the WES and SKS. You make ham radio that much more enjoyable.

73, Ron


From Bert W5ZR, SKCC #2931T

Great sprint. Bands were good, and even 10 meters was open for a while. Thanks for the qsos. 73...Bert

From Greg WA1VIL, SKCC #443T

Due to the blizzard I was between a rock and a hard place-use the G5RV with snow laden pine branches laying all over it or the attic dipole with a foot and a half of snow on the roof. Went with the G5RV...now I don't want that part of the snow to melt! Thanks for all the contacts especially the 2xQRP!

73/72 and catch you next time!


From Doug N3PDT, SKCC #6861T

Didn't really hit it that hard this weekend. Almost no QSOs Saturday, and only worked off and on Sunday. Was able to get a lot of the regulars, W7GVE Ed, F6HKA Bert, a number of new-to-me stations, and 5 fellow MO Outlaws. WA0BGV Slim, W0SVZ Eldon, WB0PYF Ray, N9YDZ Mark and K0LWV Larry. Switched around between Ten Tec Jupiter and a Viking II. Also ran a little QRO on Sunday afternoon - very unusual for me. Thanks to all and my apologies to those I couldn't hear.

From Jason KD0EKT, SKCC #9435T

Missing only a callsign with a T in it for the 50 point bonus (spelling out VALENTINES DAY)! Too bad I can't use MY OWN! Oh well, great WES, despite the RTTY. Got a new country in the log on 15m CW!

From Len W1LVT, SKCC #3932T

Jumped in for a few contacts and had fun.

From Joe K4NVJ, SKCC #393T

5 watts is tough when most everybody else is running 100 watts and there are a lot more stations doing S&P than are running. I think this may be my last try at QRP.

From George NC5G, SKCC #9891

Lot's of fun. Just not enough time to play as long as I would have liked.

From George N2JNZ, SKCC #2836T

Great WES !!! Got Avi , 4X1WQ on 15m for Asia and worked quite a few DX stations. Worked Rocky , NE7D on 2 bands , haven't worked each other for years !! Got Curt , WA2JSG and Joerg , DL9YCS for my Facebook buddies. Worked a few QRP's too. Got Emigdio , WA3RF / QRP with a struggle but fun !!! Great club and ALWAYS great fun !!!

From John K8JD, SKCC #1395T

The time I had to sprint, this weekend, was 2 one hour sittings and another 1 1/2 hour session.

Had fun when I could but family obligations including going to the big camper show had me busy (that was fun too).


From Joe WS9E, SKCC #3859T

Tough conditions here, when I got on, Sunday afternoon. My dipole was icing which caused the high speed circuit breaker in my old Ten-Tec linear power supply to trip several times as the tuner searched for a match to the new antenna Z. Fun!

It was good to see 15 meters open to Europe as well as the states. It was great to work Frank, HB9DCL.

I heard lots of activity and enjoyed the February theme.


From Nick VE3EIB, SKCC #9760

Another fun day with WES. Starting to get the hang of this. 73... VE3EIB

From Bob/22 K5ZOL, SKCC #3945T

REALLY ENJOYED THIS ONE

From Vaden NN4K, SKCC #9575

This was a good Sprintathon and taught me a lot about activity times, bands to use-when and appreciate all those I had a hard time hearing, asking repeatedly for "?". The QSB on different bands had me asking for repeats or sending SRI QSB, no copy. Alas, that's part of the challenge and I'll do it all day long if necessary.

The RTTY WPX contest made 40 meters almost unusable. I did find some holes in their wall and made some Q's while I could.

This weekend I used my IC-7000 in a contest for the first time. It was a surprise and worked like champ. It may be my favorite for a while. The antennas were a doublet at 50 ft or a vertical delta loop depending on the situation. The delta loop has a low angle and I'm sure that's why I heard/worked DU3/W5LFA. A big surprise! I use it on multibands so it's my workhorse wire.

Thanks for working around my developing bug skills. I love the bug and the more I use it, the better it feels. But I do mess up at times. hi\

Again, thanks for all who called and gave the Q's for this WES evert. All the best and 73 de NN4K.

Great fun again guys... special tnx to those who put up with my "BUG" fist! CU dwn the log!

I ran 4 watts for this sprint. Surprisingly was able to work Bert(F6HKA) on 40M. Thanks to everyone who heard me. See you next time, Ray

From Jerry K9PMV, SKCC #1438T

Great WES. Saturday Night stayed on 80 meters. Had no rtty competition there. Worked 36 skccer's on that band. Good propagation to the west coast late in the evening. Antenna for this band is a 80 meter inverted vee with ladder line feed. Used my homebrew transmatch for the best match. Next activity was Sunday afternoon on 20 meters. Again good band conditions as I worked many there. There were many stations that I had to dig out of my noise level. My thanks to you all for your patience as I worked to copy your call. 73 to all

From Scott N3JJT, SKCC #255T

This has been one of the most fun radio weekends in awhile. Saturday I worked both the FISTST Sprint and SKCC WES Sprint at the same time. Had allot of fun. It was nice to work some high numbers over 10K. I welcome all of the newest members to SKCC, I hope you are having fun. Worked a fair amount on 15 also. Thanks to all the folks who have had some long relationships, to give us the big bonus points. Also, tnx to everyone for working me on my new Viz Key, 90 degree bug. First sprint I used it. Getting to really like using the bug. See everyone later! Hope you guys to the northeast made it thru the blizzard ok. Picture is my Viz Key 90 degree bug.

Yaesu FT-817nd @ 1 Watt/Delta Loop

The Blizzard made finding time for the WES short at best. Ended up with a little over 16 inches here in my spot on Long Island...spent most of Saturday digging out...worked about 3 hours in the sprint and was very satisfied with the 11 contacts I made, I was extremely happy to work both Bert F6HKA and Gabor S57WJ with 1 Watt.

Got to play for a couple hours off and on. Bands seemed in great condition. Rigs this time were my KX3 into an HFpacker running about 25 watts to a PAR EndFedz at 50 feet.

Then moved to a rock bound 7030.7 to try my freshly built Pig Rig (5w) from Flying Pigs QRP and a Hi-Per-Mite cw filter (200Hz no ringing) from Four states QRP. The key is the Minute Man. Both worked exceptionally well! Made several contacts through the RTTY and State QSO party traffic. Thanks to

Rig was a KX3 with a LifePo battery. Used a Begali HST cootie. The KX3 did tune the antenna on 15M and made one contact on that band, thanks N2JNZ.

From Thomas/0 M0TRN, SKCC #7344T

A bit of casual operation Saturday night (40m and 80m) and Sunday afternoon (40m mostly EU). Currently my only antennas are a 40m delta loop and an 80m low dipole. Worked a few DX stations Saturday night from 01-04z, including a couple of QRP stations on 40m, but I was running QRO here. Sunday afternoon I worked some of my EU friends on 40, Bert F6HKA and Bernard F5DE on QRP and Feco HA8KW on QRO.

From Tony W4FOA, SKCC #641T

As always, lots of fun. Just a reminder that often, and becoming MORE often, our WES activity coincides with a digital contest. As you are probably aware, the digital stations seem to have little, or no regard for occupied frequencies and proceed to hammer many of us into submission. Well, there is an answer, at least for 40 meters where the QRM seems to be the worst. That option for us is to use the frequencies above 7.100. Most of the time that space (up to 7.125) is very under under-utilized and quiet. Try it, you might just like it as an alternative to fighting the "robots". My 2cents. Thanks for all of the fun!!

Only operated for about an hour on Sunday. Wasn't home Saturday evening, and was helping the XYL with watching our granddaughter on Sunday.

Great WES. The upper bands were holding up well during the daylight hours, but QRN from the storms and QRM from the beedle-beedle-beedle boys was brutal. Not a whole lot of time to operate, but the ol' J-38 and I still had a ball.

Could only work in spurts plus had to work around some persistent thunder storms. It was fun - even connected with N5JPX of Pontotoc for the first time who is just down the road and it was on 15M to boot. Each of the times I was able to be on, there was activity so it was a good WES in that regard. Congratulations on all the folks who had /50 plus years. They obviously know how to balance work, home and hobby. BTW, does it count any extra that I was able to get "VALENTINES DAY" without having to reuse any of the calls <grin>? Sorry that W1AW was not able to be maned due to the snow storm, but hope everyone in the NE was able to stay warm.

February 2013 is the 61st anniversary of receiving my ham ticket and original call. The "N' novice designator was dropped shortly after.

The pix is my "upgrade" station in 1953 after my brother gifted me with a brand new S40B for Christmas. Prior to that it was a Philco SW radio nudged into the ham band by my Elmer. No BFO! The xmtr was a 117L7/M7 rock bound on 80M.

Worked 2 fellow outlaws:

First time I've worked Epe HC6EP in Ecuador.

Condx varied, QSB, weak signals, QRN, and local noise at times, its nice to be able to switch to another antenna.

RTTY was a pain on 40 cw. But I enjoyed working the FISTS sprint, and NH QSO parties at the same time.

From Matt N3EIN, SKCC #6742T

My operations were rather inverted this time...mostly 80 and 40 meters. Signals were strong on 20 and 15 meters, but also very busy and maybe that’s why I couldn’t connect there. Including the anniversary number was an inspired addition to this WES. Communicating useful information is fundamental to our activities and this was non-trivial and very humanizing data. One wonders if enduring relationships are unique to straight key operators...we do tend to stick with a good thing! Thanks to all.

Thanks to all that worked me and your patience as I was at the top of the 40 meter CW portion competing with some strong SSB right above me and no filters other than the one between my ears. Worked vintage 2x with Doug N3PDT and his Viking II which sounded great and was also glad to be able to hear and work a couple stations that were QRP.

Pleasant surprise to see how many have been married 45 years or longer. Bert, W5ZR, was the winner at 50 years. Jane and I at 47 years. Happy Valentine's Day everyone.

John, K5ENA

After 7 years, this was my first WES but it won't be my last. A few hours and a few contacts resulted in a lot of fun.

From Rick WU1V, SKCC #9293T

This sprint was difficult for me working QRP 5 watts. I heard dozens of stations, but made only 16 contacts. However some of those contacts were significant, from Massachusetts across the pond and to the Southwest (two in Arizona) and Pacific Northwest (one in WA) so my sigs were getting out. I made one memorable 2xQRP contact with VO1BB (thanks Bill!). For the most part I was drowned out in the QRN or just plain wasn''t heard which was odd since so many of the sigs I heard were booming in at 599. The last two hours I operated I made only 4 contacts! All but two of my Qs were on 20 meters, the others were on 40 meters. I''m a good sport, but this sprint was rough for me! Thanks, 72 es 73 to all who were able to work me!

From Stew/50 KE4YH, SKCC #1893T

Submitted just let you know I made a few contacts. I didn't have ZRSprinter installed and kept my log in HRD. Too cumbersome to submit.

From ALLEN KA5TJS, SKCC #5172T

Saturday was not to hot but Sunday was great on 15 meters. I had to shut down for about 3 hours Sunday morning due to thunder storms moving thru the are but still not a bad WES for me. Thanks to all and see you next month.

I didn't realize there was an SKCC event in progress.

I am still learning the code and just happened to

log in to the site and make a contact. Great group of hams.

I was in WES only to pick up seven more C/T contacts for my Tribune and was successful. I got involved in the heat of the moment and increased my state count to 46, earned a WAC and DXC-10. Not too shabby for a two week old SKCC newbie. Had a blast!

From Mike N5JKY, SKCC #85C

Some of you SKCC members have been married a long time! Congratulations! (I've been married 37 years myself.)

From John N9OL, SKCC #4014T

I didnt get to work WES very long, but its always a good time.

From John G7JMZ, SKCC #9268

May CW be heard on the bands for many years to come.

From Emigdio WA3RF, SKCC #8906T

Very nice! Always fun to operate in WES.

From Jim ND9M/0, SKCC #8233T

Another fun contest. Like others have said, I thought I'd been with my squeeze for quite a while, but the many higher numbers I copied - tks for the big bonuses! - made me feel like a kid again. :-)

My XYL and I are on an extended road trip, and this month's WES found me operating from my car in our motel's parking lot in Colorado. I was mobile in every sense of the word, but I signed /0 since identifying as a mobile in the past seemed to throw some WES ops for a loop. And of course, we want to keep the whole thing simple.

The pix is of me at my operating QTH where I've been sitting for more than 5,000 miles during the current trip. (My XYL has been doing the driving.) The rig was an FT-857 feeding a Hustler mobile mast on the trunk, and my key is a Vizkey cootie. The netbook has proven itself to be indispensable for e-logging. The little orange unit on the dashboard above the netbook is a GPS tracker that I use for plotting my QTH along our route.
