From Ray KJ4LEN, SKCC #6956T

Because of my work schedule I only had about 3 hours to work the sprint but it was a fun 3 hours. I used my FT101EX at 75W with my J38 key. Thanks for all the contacts. Ray

From Bob WL7WH, SKCC #2940T

Another great event. Didn't have much time to operate! Thanks to all who could hear me!!

From Tom W4CU, SKCC #2733T

Had a lot of fun with QRP on my K2 this WES. It great that so many SKCC members have good ears. Thanks to all who pulled my signal out. VY 73 - Tom

From Art KB1NHV, SKCC #2775

Bands were is great condition and heard many many stations. Was able to work 9 countries and 18 states on 10,15,20 and 40 meters. Nice to hear ones worked before and also pick up new contacts. Look forward to the next one.

From Andy KB1OIQ, SKCC #6265T

This was a fun weekend, between WES and the VHF QSO party, and the dreary rainy weather (my excuse to play radio!). I don't have any boat anchors but it is interesting to hear their distinctive sound on the air. 73 de Andy

From John VK4TJ, SKCC #4474T

Sorry folks, I was not able to give this WES the attention it deserved, due to conflicting obligations. I don't think my result would have been much different, in any case :-)

From Jim N3ADF, SKCC #6459

My 1st WES worked. A lot of fun after I got the hang of it. Only worked 40M & 20M. Tried three times to work K9SKC with no luck. My last QSO was HC4/W4BWS; that was a thrill.

From George KH6OZ, SKCC #3975T

Tnx for the QSOs. I had a blast as usuall.

From Mike W5EHM, SKCC #6304T

Thanks Kare (Yu7AE) and others for the patience, lots of fun! BTW, The new scoring form easy to figure out AFTER the contest concludes, thanks Thomas (M0TRN).

73, Mike W5EHM


From Jim NV9X, SKCC #1358T

Nice WES, as always. SRI to the ones I could not hear. Thanks to all my contacts. Look forward to next one. Thanks to all in SKCC that makes this possible. It was great to meet the SKCCers at Hamvention.

From Slim WA0BGV, SKCC #5465T

Hectic events going on at my qth other than the WES. Looking ahead to the next one. de Slim

From George N2AUR, SKCC #5841T

I spent 3 hours in Dental surgery on Saturday afternoon (And enough to pay for a new K3!). My wife said I was crazy to be in WES (I'm on Vicodin for pain). Sorry if I seemed confused at times, but I still had fun (I think :>) ). I should be in a more lucid state of mind next month :>0 .

PS: I love the new reporting system - Great job!


From Jeff K9JP, SKCC #3008T

Thank You Randy, Thomas, and Pete for another GREAT WES.

Wish I have more time to operate. Next WES I will plan better.

73 and Good Health, Jeff - K9JP SKCC #3008T


From Curt WA2JSG, SKCC #3018T

Too nice a day to sit in front of radio all day, so only a handful of (great) contacts.

IC-703, 5 watts to a vertical, English Kent Key. 12v battery on all my QRP contacts.


From Jake KK6L, SKCC #7518

Had a tough time running more than a half dozen hours on this contest. I had hoped to make Centurion from this contest alone, but my family duties came first. Enjoyed myself immensely and look forward to future events.

From Brian K7TKT, SKCC #6695

Worked the first few hours from the top of a local hill. Had to fight the rain and wind but it was worth it. Lots of QSOs from there. The high point for me was working Stan ZL2BLQ in New Zealand on 15m right at the start. Also enjoyed several QRS ops that I came upon. It was a nice break to slow down and chat a bit. Apologies to Victor (WB5HOW). My antenna blew over in the middle of our QSO and by the time I got it working again you were gone. The busted antenna sent me home from the hill to the tube rig. Ended my day working John (VK4TJ). I've never worked any DX in a WES. Very exciting. Thanks all. 73, Brian

From Paul NG7Z, SKCC #802T

Best I've done in a WES. Missed several hours due to church activities both days. All in all, a great event with lots of activity. Thanks for the Q's. 73 Paul NG7Z

Equipment Icom 756P3, Force12 C3, 80M loop


From Thomas M0TRN, SKCC #7344

I had a blast this time. Used my K3, I don't have any Boatanchor rig, I do have a homebrew linear amplifier that uses tubes, but I don't think that qualifies for the bonus..

I used my trusty "Ron's Red Racer" bug (pictured), made by G3YUH, for the entire sprint, and operated a few hours Saturday night and then again a few hours in the afternoon/evening on Sunday.

Conditions were great Saturday night on 20m, not so much Sunday afternoon where there was heavy lightning noise all over 20m and 40m, but it improved a bit towards the end.

From DENNIS W0JP, SKCC #5935

Another Fun Sprint. Club station challenge a nice bonus.

Here's my Homebrew 100W Loop. Will be using at my new QTH in July until I get permanent antennas up.

From Matt N3EIN, SKCC #6742T

It was fun to get the Century-21 back on the air - it's more of a sash-weight than a boat anchor, so no points there. 4 bands, but my ears could only take 1 QSO on 80m (NW2K) and a few on 15m including my 'neighbor' Gene (NY3C). Thanks K9SKC for persevering and scratching me out and to everyone for a great WES.

From Randy K9SKC, SKCC #3687T

I would like to thank Thomas & Pete for all their hard work getting everything ready for this WES! Bravo guys!!! It wouldn't have happened without you!

Thanks to Kare for being the bonus station for this month!!

Thanks to Andy for the sked page!

And thanks to all the members for making the WES what it is today.It wouldn't be anything without member participation...and I heard a lot of it this weekend.

I already have a few folks lined up to take the K9SKC call in coming months.Watch the WES page for details!!

Thanks again everyone!

From Dick K2HT, SKCC #5087

Very enjoyable, thanks for the QSO's es SKCC #

From Mitch WD0ECO, SKCC #6893T

Another great WES. The bands were OK. Most time spent on 20M but did finish with a few on 40M. A little activity on 10 and 15 also. Not a single qso on 80M this time.

Always glad to work some of the guys from the Missouri Posse: K0LWV, WA0BGV, N0UYN, and NE0S.

It was nice to work Ed, W7GVE, as my first qso and again later on a second band.

And what's a WES without Bert, F6HKA, and his STRONG signals from across the pond. Always a pleasure to work you Bert.

It was encouraging to hear so many newer high numbers.

Yaesu FT-950 100 watts into a dipole and Mosley three element beam. It my first WES with a beam. It was fun giving the rotor a workout!!! ;-) Sorry for the delays while I was turning the beam to get a better signal on you.

Keys used were Begali Spark and NT9K SKCC Club Key.

Thanks to all involved. 73, Mitch


From Danny K9KHJ, SKCC #7179

Tough putt being QRP on 40m this weekend--pretty darn noisy-Consistently LOUD were NEOS, NS7B, NG7Z, and W4CU. Worked F6HKA, which for 5w and a simple wire antenna was a thrill. Used a newly acquired homebrew key (see image) all the way through, had fun once I had it tamed.

K9KHJ's soapbox image


From Emil WD4SCZ, SKCC #556T

The Boatanchor used was a Globe Scout 65A with the WRL 755 VFO. Receiver was a Hallicrafters SX-110. Antenna is a homebrew version of the classic ARRL 80/40 trap dipole. The addition of a Dow key relay has made switching from receive to transmit a lot simpler. Only two switches to throw instead of four.

From CHAS W9SAY, SKCC #1158T

Despite less than ideal condx here, it was a great weekend.

I'm claiming the Heathkit HW-101 as a tube rig despite a couple of diodes in there somewhere.

Tnx. W7GVE and W4CU, 20M.

If this is wrong, I'll revise my claim.


From Tony W4FOA, SKCC #641T

Transmitter Eico 720, Heath HG-10B VFO, Receiver Drake 2B.

Antenna yagi and dipole. 50 watts maximum. Les Logan Bug.

Lots of fun.


From Eldon W0SZV, SKCC #4999T

BA station was Knight T60 transmitter,Hammarlund HQ110A reciever,B&W351C TR switch, Eico 755 swr meter and Navy flameproof key. People could hear me but my reciever couldn't hear them. Finally went to my Jupiter and got one contact.My one contact was w5zr. thanks Bert

From Ken AD5QB, SKCC #9C

First WES for me in quite a while, did my usual search and pounce a few minutes at a time as I was able. Nice to see the higher member numbers, the club has really grown in 5+ years. Had to give a couple repeats on my number, I guess a single digit member number can be a surprise!

From George N2JNZ, SKCC #2836T

Had limited time due to family but had fun !!! Thanks to all who worked me. Conditions not so hot this WES. Many thanks to Thomas , M0TRN for getting my info on 20m !!! Tough job but we made it !! Thanks to Randy for K9SKC on 40m !! And of course my buddy Curt , WA2JSG for a good Q !!! Flex 1500 , 5 watts , ZeroFive 40m vertical and Vizkey Vertical.

Enjoy this..run 30w to indoor antenna..73

From Damon K0ESX, SKCC #5862C

Thanks for another wonderful event.

From Kate K6HTN, SKCC #5405C

Used a bug this time, which I'm not that good at. Got better, however, after I realized that a toroid was required on the bug cord! Must still have RF in the shack. Will have to work on that. Bands were not great; seemed to fade in & out on an hourly basis. Had a great time, except when no-one could hear me.

From Jim KA0CSW, SKCC #3741T

Could not spend much time, but still a lot of fun as always.

Great fun! worked my NT9K club key and original bug. Thanks for the qso's and 73.

From ED W7GVE, SKCC #7297

Nothing heard on 80 high noise level on 40--- 20 was marginal

15 only open for a few hours and 10 was a doornail--- That

didnt keep me from having a great time


From Pete W1PNS, SKCC #4853T

Thanks for the QSOs folks, and nice inaugural WES, Randy!

From Gil KF7KPL, SKCC #7226T

Band conditions seemed poor at my location. Very tough to get a signal out at times. Had a great time as usuall. 73 de Gil es thanks for all the QSO's.

From Butch KD5RSS, SKCC #1910T

conditions ruff Sunday afternoon, wish I would have started earlier Saturday evening, but always enjoy no matter what number of "Q's" I rack up. Butch KD5RSS

From Dwight WC5W, SKCC #7543C

Wow! I had a wonderful time. I didn't get to operate as much as I wanted to but every minute was a blast. I could tell that it was a boat anchor event. One signal drifted onto me and the guy that was following him made the qso then got me as well. As a result my frequency was hyjacked, but what a blast hearing so many vintage rigs. Some rigs are more boat than anchor, hi hi. Always fun to watch the swans go floating by. I enjoyed all the ops and can't wait till next time. 73's to all, Dwight, WC5W

had a blast like always.. and the most members worked..tnxs

From Chas KW6G, SKCC #252

With graduation week and all the celebrating (I had a son and nephew graduate), there was little time left for operating. Besides band condxs were not very good anyway.

From ANdy K3UK, SKCC #1325T

Always fun even though I was not in it much.

From Jerry K9PMV, SKCC #1438C

Had a busy weekend with birthdays and relatives staying over. I did manage to get off 6 Vintage station QSOs however. Sorry about the chirp on my signal. This gear needs an overhaul. A fun event as always. 73 to all from Jerry K9PMV

From Edward N7EDK, SKCC #7534

I was only able to work about three hours today, but still had fun ! Thanks to Paul, Jake and Bill, my only contacts today. The the little KX1 at 3.5 watts did well, Paul had a tough time with me, but we made it thru !

Can't wait for big brother to come out....KX3, that will be a fun radio, anyway you look at it !

Thanks again to the SKCC for these weekend Sprints, what a great group ! See you all next month....72/73 de Ed


From TJ W0EA, SKCC #4593T

Didn't operate a whole lot, bands were pretty bad. Did make a number of contacts with stations just above the noise, which was a surprise considering I was only doing 5w. Enjoyed it as usual and can't wait for the next one! Keys were my Speed-X/EF Johnson bug and Soviet TK key.

From Kieth W0IS, SKCC #2048T

This was another great Vintage Station event for me, even more fun than my first one last year. Each time I make contacts with this station I learn more to fine tune my experience's. Today, I learned a very quick and almost perfect method of "Spotting" with the DX60/HQ110. Used the J36 Bug for the whole event. Thanks to all that I was able to work. 73, Kieth wi0s 2048T

From JOE V31JP, SKCC #3171T

Too many things going like the last CWT session, work, an antenna project that still isn't done. Thunder & lightning on Sunday morning, so shut down & disconnected. Great fun working old & new friends. I need to improve my antenna! Oh, I often sent V3 instead of BLZ. Most contests, V3 is sufficient to identify ones country as F for France.

From Dan KC5GXL, SKCC #647

My first WES, and really enjoyed it. Didn't make many contacts, but sure had fun!

Hope to join in many more times!


From Greg WA1VIL, SKCC #443T

Fun as always but not as productive as I would have liked. Special thanks to Matt N3EIN and Alan WA1AR for the BA bonus points and K9SKC for coming up to 7120 to listen for my rockbound DX20. I still don't believe the T9 you guys gave! The BA station was the DX20 and a Drake 2B with a homemade T-R relay. It was my "novice dream" back in '64. Back then the RX was a Lafayette HE30 Antenna was a G5RV. Gotta get a VFO to get away from the phone stations-tuning the RX and manual T-R is painful enough!

Time to get back to working on the QRP award-had to enter this WES as QRO with the mighty 30 watts out! Kudos to all those who make SKCC happen!

From FRED KB0LF, SKCC #6302T

Great fun as always.

From Larry K0LWV, SKCC #3571

I had a great time. Nice day for a contest, drizzly, chilly outside and no noise on the bands, lots of activity. Only worked one local Missouri station Slim, WA0BGV. Nice to work some good DX, YU7AE, F6HKA, OH5FNI,VE3HNE. After the contest I took down my tree mounted wire ground plane and converted it to an inverted Vee to see how that works. My Longwire Vee performed well as usual.

From Alan KA5VZG, SKCC #6264T

Lots of activity, lots of fun.

Andy,K3UK, really summed it up - "...contesting but in such a relaxed manner"


From Len W1LVT, SKCC #3932C

Had fun though the whole weekend . Took time off half-way through to jury-rig a more efficient 20 meter antenna. Used my 1968 Collins S-Line and Heathkit SB-614 and were real workhorses!

From Phil N1DN, SKCC #6482T

Thanks to all for the QSOs. Used both Bunnel flameproof key and Viz Vertical Bug for contacts. Great fun as always!

From John K8LJG, SKCC #336T

Not much time to operate, but as alway's a lot of fun !

Used my Vibroplex Original Deluxe (1965)

From Dennis N0UYN, SKCC #5753T

I made the first 5 contacts with my Kenwood TS-520s. Then it started acting up, so I switched to my Icom 706Mk2G. I ran 25 watts on both and used my 1955 CMI Navy Flameproof key. Band conditions seemed mostly marginal. However, I did hear Stan ZL2BLQ on 15M around 0300z, but his signal was too weak for me to work. Maybe next time. 73 to all.

From Ginnie NV5F, SKCC #6663

I had a busy weekend with Hamcom in Plano, but got in a few QSOs last night. If I'd known the theme of this months WES, I would have warmed up the TR-4! Oh, well. Got a few new numbers this time. TNX to all. Ginnie

From Bill W4CUX, SKCC #5497T

This was a great event. I don't have a boat anchor transmitter (yet), but I do have a mostly operational Hammarlund HQ-170A. It still has some issues, but I had it going well enough to hear plenty of QSOs. The problem was getting my Yaesu FT950 on the same frequency. Manual switching antenna between boat anchor ( which need alignment) and SS transceiver was quite a challenge, but I did manage to use the Hammarlund for the receive portion of several QSOs. I also used my mini key for the first time in a sprint. Very smooth.

As always, looking forward to the next event.

Thanks all I hope you did not get too confussed with the TX QTH. I started in Texas and then came home and finished the contest in LA :) had a great time. The Hamvention was a success. Wished I had brought the SX110 home :( Hugh

From Russ WA0YEI, SKCC #6300T

Only had a short time to play "radio". 20M was in lousy shape and only made a couple of contacts. 73' all!

From Bert W5ZR, SKCC #2931T

Very good turnout. I missed Friday night (XYL QRM). High point was working NT9K and then K2RFP. Great fun, thanks for all the qsos. 73 Bert

From Doug N3PDT, SKCC #6861T

Another great WES! USed my Kenwood TS-520s for the first few QSOs, then switched to Jupiter. Driver is a little weak on the old hybrid and it seems to switch sidebands on RX after each TX. Didn't get much time to work this WES, maybe 5 hours tops, and stuck mainly to 20m. Lots of fun! Good to hear everyone.

Thanks to all and see you next WES.


From Rick NS7B, SKCC #7594

I think a lot of people heard K9SKC on 80 meters.But the QRN must have been bad there.Worked a lot of new stations thanks everyone.Even with bands not so good,lots of QSB.

73 Rick NS7B.


From Jim K5BZH, SKCC #447

Worked 40, 20, 15, and 10 meters. 40 = 5 Qs, 20 = 23 Qs, 15 = 5 Qs, 10 = 1 Q. Total = 34 QSOs.

Found propagation left a bit to be desired. Fading was fast on 15 meters at times. Twenty meters had QSB issues too. Forty was pretty noisy. Fifteen was very quiet, very little QRN. I heard some signals drop from 579 levels to inaudiable, then back up a minute later to maybe a 349. Still a fun event, but losing N3EIN due to QSB wasn't fun, hated to miss that one, he started out with a good signal, conditions quickly changed on him.

Like one or two others, I wanted to make the required contacts in this specific event to earn my "C." Had I called CQ more and not used the Search and Pounce technique that might well have happened. I only made 34 contacts, but in the last hour I made 12 Qs and most of those were a result of calling CQ, I have learned to join those "holding the frequency." My fault!!!

I own a lot of vacuum tube gear, just too busy this month to have any ready for the event, sure wish that I had. I could have used my HRO-5TA1 if the power supply weren't packed away. Have a nice little homebrew 6AG7 - 2E26 transmitter that I built many years ago. Also a Viking Ranger that I need to restore. How does a retired old geezer run out of time?


From Randy KB4QQJ, SKCC #3508T

Fun WES as always. Only got to play for an hour and a half but managed to find my DX friends Walt, LW3EX, and Bert F6HKA. Thanks.

Only managed two contacts on my HW-16, thanks Kare YU7AE, then switched back to my K2 at 5w into the PAR EndFedz.

Sorry about the chirps Jim...Thanks Randy for the last minute club contact.

From Ed W1EJ, SKCC #1594T

Conditions were abyssmal.

From Joe KD2JC, SKCC #710T

Wish I had more time for this Sprint. Started on Sunday morning with the K-2 and switched over to my Heathkit DX-60B, HG-10B and Hallicrafters S-85 with Q-Multiplier. One learns to appreciate modern transceivers after having to zero-beat stations on every frequency change. Thanks to all that found me in their bandwidth. 15 Meters provided a few new numbers for that band.

From Greg VA3TSK, SKCC #4521

Played for about 2 hours on Saturday night. Used my TS520 at about 75W, with Nye Viking Master Key. Called CQ and ran a frequency for the first time in any contest! Great fun.

From Dennis W8BFX, SKCC #7765

Thanks for another enjoyable WES. Slowly working towards the C list. A special thank you to Bert,W5ZR,for the Tracker program. It works like a charm and really adds to the enjoyment of SKCC. 73,Dennis

From Bert K6CSL, SKCC #4486

I only was able to get into WES for an hour or so, in between action in the ARRL June VHF QSO Party. The conditions over-all seemed to be pretty poor.

From Rob G4LMW, SKCC #4454T

Managed just one QSO (tnx Vince).... busy weekend!

From Jim N3MVX, SKCC #3273T

Great WES. I am recovering from rotator cuff surgery so worked the WES in a sling which made sending and logging interesting. Thanks to all who put up with my poor fist and many requests for repeats of your call while I was trying to log it in the computer.

From Kare YU7AE, SKCC #5790C

My 1st WES. Thank you for trusting me to be a special bonus station, unfortunately conditions were bad, I apologize to everyone that I have not heard. Nice company and good contest, enjoyment was done QSO with all of you. 73 CUL next WES or SKSE.

From VERN W9HLY, SKCC #6672T

Used a new FLEX-1500. Worked fine. It's involved. Had only one station refuse me, W6UT, couldn't copy me. Next time....

From tom W4TMW, SKCC #6184T

I only operated a few hours (early Saturday and late Sunday) but had a great time. Finally completed my magnetic bug, a version of WB9LPU's "Paddle Bug", and put it on the air. Mostly operated 20M using a TS480S (90W) and 3-El Tribander @ 55'. I hate to call my trusty TS830S a boat anchor, but couldn't get it on the air due to it's runny nose ;0)............73 to all Tom

From SCOTT W5ESE, SKCC #688T

10 meters was open pretty well, but not many thought to try it.

From ED KG4W, SKCC #2416T

Fun time, first WES for me in awhile. Used 200w & on for last 4 hrs or so.

From Dean NW2K, SKCC #7330T

Had great fun! On the K3UK page to help work multipliers. A great bunch of folks. Thanks to KJ2M for returning later on with his SKCC number. TU to Kare and Randy for their fine efforts. Used the N1MM logger with SKCC template. 5W, matchbox, 80M wire loop at 30 feet and lots of time.

From Dan W9DLN, SKCC #3635T

Finally got the new shack completed. Seems to work well. I should not have to worry about the computer overheating anymore. Conditions were less than optimal for WES. Stateside wasn't too bad but it took forever for DX to start being heard. Far from setting any records here. Thank you everyone for a great weekend regardless if I worked you or not. Also thanks to the C/T's in 39 states.

Special thanks to K2RFP and K3UK. Couldn't make these scores without you guys! Also thank you Randy for keeping the tradition alive.


From Chris WB2VEN, SKCC #7777

My best WES yet! Started by nabbing my first QSO with my freshly-built Rockmite (not even in the Altoids yet), then I was surprised to find that I could tune down & attenuate my Swan 350 to 1 watt on 20m, so I could get the BoatAnchor points, and threw the HW-8 into the mix on 40m to round things out. Thrilled to work 2 DX stations (one was bonus station YU7AE)! Heard some strong sigs from 7 land, but couldn't get to them. I did hear K9SKC a few times but got squashed by other stations. Great fun regardless! 72! Chris

From Joe WS9E, SKCC #3859C

Beautiful day up here in WI, so we were out and about most of the weekend. Made a few contacts on 20 and 40. I picked up six new "T" contacts. I think I only have ten to go.

Randy had a pile up going on 40 with his K9SKC call. I was running solid state equipment, but the old Speed-x key got a work out. Thanks everyone. See you next time.


From Bernard F5DE, SKCC #6247T

Unfortunately only five hours of traffic.

Two new members logged during this WES.

Two bands for Bonus station YU7AE.

And nice QSO with W4CU/QRP and N8BB/QRPp !

See you all in July for the next event.


From Ron AC2C, SKCC #2748T

Great fun !!! Conditions were good although we had some Thunderstorms at the beginning. Kudos to Thomas, Pete, and Randy for setting this up in short time. It sure looks great to me. I also like the K9SKC extra bonus idea - keep it up !

From Greg K7SDW, SKCC #6224T

Although the VHF QSO party was going on at the same time, WES was more fun. Special credit to Ginnie, NV5F, who was 429 at the start but QRN and QSB chewed on our sigs whereby it was the longest time period for confirming call sign and exchange information. Thanks Ginnie.. Hope to wrk u agn under better band conditions. 73 to all SKCC members

From Mike VE3WMB, SKCC #120C

Lots of QRN here this weekend and not a lot of time to play radio but still had a lot of fun. I decided to take the plunge and use my Homebrew Steak knife cootie key for the WES, so my apologies to those that I worked for the choppy sounding Morse. On Sunday I thought that 20m was dead but I worked Bert, F6HKA and he was a very strong 599+. Till next time .. 73 ! - Michael

From Noel K8NB, SKCC #3112T

Home remodeling projects took most of my time so only a few contacts. Not quite a boat anchor, used my Ten Tec Century 21. Sure miss a single signal receiver in crowded band conditions. Keys used were '56 Vibroplex original, HiMound coffin bug and Signal Electric straight key.

From ART KA5DWI, SKCC #6907

From Dave W3NP, SKCC #3182T

I only had a few hours available to work the WES this time but I had a great time using a few of my many pieces of vintage gear. The receiver used was the Collins 75A4 and the Eico 720 with Hallicrafters HA-5 VFO on 40 meters and the Johnson Ranger on 20 meters. The Heathkit AT-1 was all set for 80 but got too sleepy Sat nite to try that band. I used a Johnson TR switch for antenna change over and monitored my signal on the A4. Keys used were the Junker straight key and my Bunnell J-36 as well as the 1923 nickle plated Vibroplex Original. I just wished I could have had the whole weekend to operate. The vintage/boatanchor theme is my favorite. I copied some strong QRPp signals - like N8BB Werner with his 800 mw signal coming in at 589. Had my usual 20 and 40 meter Q's with Ed W7GVE. I didn't even use a computer this time - all hand logged. It just didn't seem right to put a PC next to my BA's!!!

Like everyone else, I wish I had more time to devote to the WES. However, it was a wonderful time. Thank you to all of my contacts. I made a majority of my contacts with my Heathkit HR-1680 Rx and HX-1681 Tx pair. Needless to say, sitting on a frequency was a LOT easier than constantly tuning and spotting different frequencies. :-) Maybe some day I will have a C or T behind my number.... one can only hope. :-) Thanks everyone!!

Since May 23 I have been deployed with the Red Cross in Joplin, Mo. due to an EF5 tornado that hit the town. I am part of a team of ECRV communications operators and for the WES I utilized the 52 ft mast to mount an antenna that Frank W2XYZ brought to the job along with his FT-817, Frank and I worked NG7Z Paul on 20 & 40 meters from the comm. vehicle using QRP.

Operating from the midwest is fun. I was with K0KEX in the ECRV at Joplin, MO. I worked NG7G on 20m using the vehicle's IC-706 and its microphone as a key. Our antenna was a "Super Antenna" on the vehicle's 52' mast. Only regret is that we didn't have more time available to us, so we could have participated longer in the event.
