From John K8JD, SKCC #1395T

Tried to stay up late Saturday and get more 80 and 40M QSOs but just got too sleepy. Maybe Next month will do better.

From MIKE K8NS, SKCC #10580T

Had good DX QSOs on 10, 15, 20m. Worked many stations on two and three bands. Had fun chasing the "Tubers". A tip of the hat to K5UI and K9PMS, thats one heck of alot of valves you guys are running. Those aint boat anchors, the're space heaters. 73 to all.

From Peter AK3X, SKCC #7217T

Just a little time on Saturday night to play in the WES. Remodeling and painting the spare bedroom that houses the radio stuff among other things. Got everything more or less reconnected on a new desk. Had fun as usual.

See you all next WES. 73/72 Peter


From Scotty NU0S, SKCC #5880

Thank you to all... I only operated for a short time due to storms I had to unplug... I used the newly built K1, the Junkers key and had great fun...

Short on time this weekend. But did manage to get a few contacts in.

From John G0RDO, SKCC #2133T

Nice sunny weather here so didn't do much radio. The bands seemed dead but did get 21 QSO's. 15 on 20m, 5 on 15m and 1 on 10m (CT1GFQ).

Rig - FT-2000, 100 watts, MA6V vertical, and a big Marconi Beam Radio Station key c1920's.

From Joe KD2JC, SKCC #710T

I enjoy this event in spite of not having enough time. Ran my Heathkit DX060B and HG-10B VFO throughout and a solid state Heathkit receiver. I learned to appreciate transceivers after having to switch between transmit and receive with these vintage rigs. Thanks to all that worked me. 73

From Mike N5YG, SKCC #6304T

The highest tube total was W3NP at 32 and the least was V31JP at one. Thanks to all that used their tube gear and a special thanks to Pete W1PNS, and others, that made this WES possible. 73 from AR!

From Dick K2HT, SKCC #5087T

Thanks for the QSO's. Band condx were fair at best but enjoyed the fun WES. Glad to work K0SKC the Missouri Outlaw SKCC Club station.

From Kare YU7AE, SKCC #5790T

Vy poor propagations, but have few nice QSO`s with old friends. Using old FT901DM (T3), about 100w into 2 el. Quad, key is Lionel J-36 bug.

From Marco IW1BCO, SKCC #8669

3 qso only, just around 14.050 and after sunday dinner, but made in qrp (fb as always), and 3 new numbers and points for my C and QRP awards... Lets goo! Ciao ciao.

From Rick WU1V, SKCC #9293T

I enjoyed this sprint though due to back problems I could only work an hour at a time. Still managed to log about 4 hours. Contacted two stations non-members and invited them to join. The sprints are a good opportunity to make friends and grow our club. 9 of my 25 contacts were with boat-anchor members.

Highlights: QRP contact with Andy UU1CC in Ukraine 4900+ miles away; first contact with Joe V31JP in Belize; a second contact with Dave ND0CW in North Dakota, the state where I grew up and had my first ham station; and a 2xQRP contact with Steve K4JPN. Also contacted Bernard F5DE in France despite QSB and QRN. Most contacts were SE and Midwest USA, a couple in California.

Running QRP is a challenge! For me it makes these sprints all the more delicious when I make contacts, especially far away! 72/73, Rick


From Doug N3QW, SKCC #10411T

Not a big effort but was fun none the less.

From Jim K5UI, SKCC #2980T

So many tubes, so little time ...

Great to hear some of the old boatanchors on the air with good, stable signals. After a weekend of drifting receivers, continually re-spotting the transmitter, and tweaking the Q-multiplier, I definately empathize with the challenges of the hams of yesterday.

Used a Hallicrafters HT-32 (20 tubes) for the entire contest. Swapped receivers around, but generally stuck with the tube-count-maiximizing Hammarlund HQ-180 (18 tubes). Having a Q-multiplier really made the difference and was really fun to use.

See everyone next month!.

From Rick K7CHS, SKCC #8753T

Was only able to join the fun for a little while this time. The Hallicrafters S-76 and the DX-40 worked well. But the selectivity on the S-76 is just not good enough for this type of event, with about 1 khz for narrowest selectivity. Only have 1 xtal (7.053 no vfo yet) for this portion of the band for the DX-40. So it was very frustrating. See ya'all next time.

From Joe W1HFF, SKCC #6309C

Thanks for another fun sprint.

From Pete W1PNS, SKCC #4853T

Many thanks to all who took part. Some my-t-fine looking tube rigs out there!

From Alan KA5VZG, SKCC #6264

Some nice sounding "boat anchors" on the air for this one. Makes you remember that first solid state rig, no more dips and peaks, changing freqs by just spinning the vfo dial.

BUT, it sure was fun turning all the knobs and watching the meters. . . felt like a "real" radio operator.

Maybe I need to get one again. . . :-)


From Keith WD8AFB, SKCC #7196T

Gosh, I sure love working CW with the old rigs. I was using my HW-101 and SB-200 amp, for a total of 21 tubes. When I finished at 2358z the temperature in my shack was 85 degrees F with the a/c running non-stop. hi hi

I accidently had my power too high for my remote tuner out in the woods. It "was" an LDG 1000 ProII, good for 750W CW. I burned out the coils for tuning 40M and 30M. Guess its time for another $800 tuner. Rats!

I wish I could have been on the air more. Thanks for the QSO's guys. See ya next time. :-)


From Tony W4FOA, SKCC #641T

Drake 2B/2BQ Receiver - Eico 720 and Drake 2NT Transmitters

Outside temperature 82 degrees. Shack temperature 97 degrees.

Winter months would be good for next time, I think.

Lots of fun and some interesting "sounds" from the BA gang.

Thanks for the Q's.


From Dave W3NP, SKCC #3182T

I really enjoyed the vintage tube gear theme again this year. After being a ham for almost 54 years it is easy to get bored with modern "plug and play" ham rigs. I love my Ten Tec gear but they make it too easy.

For this event I chose my Eico 720 transmitter (top shelf) along with the Hallicrafters HA-5 VFO. The receiver was the Collins 75A4. I used a Johnson electronic TR switch and monitored my sending on the receiver. My station was all tube with a count of 32 tubes. I used my 1923 Vibroplex bug as well as a Junker straight key. I don't think I forgot to re-tune the VFO at all when QSY'ing!!

Conditions were decent and I alternated between 40 and 20 meters. I worked a total of 177 tubes over the 53 QSO's. My old gear did well with no zorches or

"crapouts". I had a great time and look forward to another vintage tube gear event again soon.

From Art WB8ENE, SKCC #3773T

Wish I had my DX-60B back that I built as a novice in 1969, or at least my FT-101E that I sold a couple of years ago. Oh well. Some of the stations I worked during this sprint sounded like they were running tube sets, but others were so clean and free of chirp, I wanted to know what they were using. So I checked one out on QRZ.com and found out he had quite a collection of Heath gear. Made most of my contacts on 40 again as usual. Thanks, and see you in the next sprint. 73, Art

From John K0FTC, SKCC #2227T

Tried a couple of new things for me this WES. Made a short portable trip to my kitchen table the first day. Used a home brew mag loop for a couple of contacts (and although it is ugly, it actually worked!), and then switched to an AlexLoop the rest of the day which is perhaps 10 times better built and that much easier to use then my home brew magnetic loop. I also experimented with using one side of my Begali paddle to make WES QSOs, with the KX3's internal keyer set to "hand" (continuous tone with key down, so code is manually generated by the op), and found it was fairly easy to send code either with my thumb or index finger. Second day had the KX3 hooked back up in my regular shack configuration and experimented with using the amplifier, and made the first QSO's with that appliance (nothing over 60 watts). Knew I was going to have family events all weekend, so just experimented and played with the equipment when I could. Thanks for all the contacts and QSO's, I had a lot of fun when I could operate.

From Joe V31JP, SKCC #3171T

I have two keys I am testing before going to restoration and had Dah post contact go loose and one dit weight screw come loose. Used '48 Zephyr, '20 Junior, WW II Buzza and a '60s coffin bug. Just not enough time in the weekend to enjoy more.

From BOB AA6AC, SKCC #6276T

Conditions in Oxnard, Ca seemed to be Fair..Operations were

on 15 and 20 meters. Nothing was heard or received on 10m.

I did not find many "anchors" most stations signed "T0". I

used my reliable Kenwood TS830S with 3 tubes "T3". Sprints

are always fun to me. Sure will be glad when bands improve

I need a DX-fix. This sprint for AA6AC was all USA lower

48. 16 of 48 found. Not heard AK or HI. TNX to all that

participated. QSL's in mail. AA6AC #6276T


From Joerg DL9YCS, SKCC #7150T

bad result :-(

very nice wx on saturday and XYLs birthday on sunday.


From JOHN KA4BAT, SKCC #10395C

This was a great WES. Some of the bands were very noisy at times; but workable. I'm happy to report that I finally earned my "C", and am well on my way to earning my "T". I was glad to hear Gene, NY3C, and Frank, N3RSD, both from DE. I've had roughly 650 CW QSO's in the past 8 MOS, but only 3 were from DE, including these two. For what ever reason, we don't hear DE in Ohio very often. And I was happy to hear from Ed, W7GVE from AZ, and Ann, KE6OIO, from CA. It's also hard for us in Ohio to get over the mountains and hear from out west. The same goes for Quint, W7CQW, from ID. Again out of my 650 CW QSO's in the past 8 MOS, only 6 were from ID. So again thank you to Gene, Frank, Ed, Ann, and Quint.

It was also a thrill to hear again from Bert, F6HKA, from France. He always has a great signal. But the best contact of this WES for me was from Gabor, S57WJ, from Slovenia. From Ohio, that's 4,622 miles away! I had my headphones on both ears, and both hands on the headphones, but I pulled him out including his QSL. The WES is really a worldwide event, as someone usually hears a member from Germany or France as well. Thanks again Gabor, I hope we hear you in there next month.


From Russ K0LUW, SKCC #1702T

Need to run a rig with tubs, so I fired up my old Heathkit SB-220 with 2 tubes, 3-500Z's...hi. I was "rained and stormed" out most of the weekend but had a good time..

Another fun WES even with only a couple of short op sessions on Saturday morning and Sunday afternoon.

It was fun to work Slim with the new Outlaw Club call K0SKC on 40 meters. The ole Outlaw leader represented the call well!!!

From Drew AF2Z, SKCC #2082T

Had the entire weekend free for this WES, so managed to work lots of tube rigs. Sounded great! Didn't give any one less than "8" in RST tone (though probably could have...) Most contacts on 20/40; only a few on 15 and 80... I kept an eye on the RBN page (Reverse Beacon Network) to see how well I was getting out. RBN is a good tool for the sprints. Unfortunately, at times when the signal was hitting the most beacons there were few SKCCers around... My station: Elecraft K3 at 10 watts; Junker straight key; 100-ft wire up 30-ft and attic 10/15 dipole.

From Larry W9CC, SKCC #469T

My time was very limited sorry to say. Glad to hear the tube guys. I ran 10W most of the time from my KX3. Even my homebrew stuff is solid state. Lots of fun as usual.

From Walt LW3EX, SKCC #3804T

Solar activity continues at very low levels guess that`s why I coudn`t hear as many active SKCC stns.

The conditions were good for DX even I could easily contact VK4TJ, TU John. A nice surprise was being caught in 10m by the ringleader Slim running K0SKC MO Outlaw Club call, WTG!

Only got 33 tubes, surely there were many more out there...

QSO stats: 15 on 14MHz, 17 on 21MHz and 13 on 28MHz

From Chas W9SAY, SKCC #1158T

Don't know how many time I forgot to throw the rcv-xmit switch. Ah, they don't build 'em like they used to.

Happy to offer a few guys my 21 tubes. So, the MO Outlaws are organized now!! Great pick for their call sign too. Great fun for the short time on the air. Lot's of grand boy's base ball this weekend

From JOHN K4BAI, SKCC #3280

FT1000MP, Alpha 78, 1 KW, Vibroplex Deluxe hand key, TH6DXX, dipole, inverted vee. Band conditions from 80 to 15 seemed pretty good. No sprint signals heard on 10M or 6M and didn't listen to 160M. Lot of QRN on 80 and 40 due to near by thunder storms. QSOs by band: 80: 1; 40: 29; 20: 99; 15: 17.

Thanks for all QSOs. 73, John, K4BAI.


From Charlie KB1UOH, SKCC #7560T

Conditions for 40M QRP were pretty bad.

From Ed K1EDG, SKCC #9625T

Just got my Flex1500 QRP a little over a week ago and other than a few contacts this was the first real workout. I thought I would be lucky to get 15-20 stations worked not 51 in a little overs 16 hours on the air. A lot of fun as usual!

Thank you to every one who listened hard to make a good contact for me!!!

Didn't notice until after started that this was a BA event. W7EL Transceiver ( homebrew ) on 40M, K1 on 20M. 88' Doublet @ 50'. Fun as always.

From Mike KI1U/5, SKCC #2679C

I operated portable from Hobbs State Park near War Eagle, AR. Not a serious effort just a nice day to get out and play radio a little bit. I was hoping 6 would open up but no luck there. Fortunately I had a 20 meter dipole and a Speed-X key with me.

From Art KA5DWI, SKCC #6907

First of all, thank you to Garey K4OAH, master source of knowledge for repair issues of Drake equipment. He is on the Drake Radio Yahoo Group. When I heard about this WES, I fired up the Drake TR3 and found a problem when it was key-up. It was putting out about 2/3rds of the carrier from when the key was down.

I put the question out on the Drake Group and Garey quickly gave me an answer. He said that it was either a bad Mixer or Driver tube. I didn't think I would have time to replace them, nor really wanted to spend the cash for a couple of tubes that might not be the problem. This weekend is HamCom here in North Texas. It was one the the largest and best Hamventions back in the old days (1978-2001). So I had a chance to see if I could find the tubes.

Boy was I lucky!!!

I found both of them for about 3/8ths of the price I had seen listed. I took them home, plugged them in and WALLA!!, no carrier when the key was up.

I unfortunately was busy with many other things this weekend, as it was our High School graduation (I am a Math teacher) and the YL insisted on finding cheap arrangements to Arizona this summer (retiring there). Despite the rig's finicky tune up on 20 Meter, I got to make a number of nice QSOs on 20 and 40 Meters. The other challenge was tuning my ear to a 1000Hz tone, versus a 750Hz tone I am used to with my Yaesu equipment. I ended up hooking up the a microphone from the computer and beating the CW at 1000Hz with my Hamscope program. Also the TR3 has no filtering.

Then on top of that, I tapped CW with the Nye key with no sidetone.

AREN'T BOATANCHORS FUN!!!

I am ready to do it again.

From Doug N3PDT, SKCC #6861T

Spent most of the WES flat on my back with the crud. Brain was pretty foggy, but got a few contacts in. My favorite WES of the year and I only get 8 QSOs!

Transmitter: B&W 5100 Receiver National HC300 (plus xtal calibrator) = 33 tubes. Wish I could have handed it out a lot more.


From PHIL KB0ETU, SKCC #4542T

Saturday was too nice of a day to be inside doing radio. Sunday was one storm after another. Too much QRN on 40 meters and only heard one station on 15 meters. So only had 6 contacts on 40, 18 on 20, and 1 on 15 meters. 10 meters

was dead! Didn't hear as many stations on the air - maybe due to propagation (?). Still, another fun sprint - using a K-2 and dipole at 35 feet. Later, 72/73 Phil


From Alan WA1AR, SKCC #4079T

Tough WES for me. Started out setting up a Drake TR4.

Receiver seemed a little light so I hauled it away and set up a Globe Scout and a Drake 2b. Tuned up on 80M with 35 watts and called CQ for an hour with no answers. Tried to tune up on 40M and the 2B had a problem with sensitivity.

So I waited for Sunday to fix the 2B. Tried 80M again with no answers. Now the Globe Scout has no output on 40M.

So I made 2 QSOs with a 756P3 and called it a day. I spent most of the sprint trying to fix the stuff in place. Now its all on the bench and I can fix it at my leisure.

Alan


From Scott N3JJT, SKCC #255T

Well..Summer is here! Worked some stations in between doing other things outside. Had fun as usual. Ran 100 w with the K2 and IC718 with my Champion Bugs. I was glad to hear the boys from Delaware. Thanks for finishing up my WAS-C. Cu all next time!

From Jim W1WIU, SKCC #486T

Used Kenwood TS 520 (3 tubes). Lowest SKCC number was Tony, W4FOA #641T and highest was Slim, K0SKC #10739, a club station. Always fun to meet old and new friends. 8 QSO's out of 25 were with rigs with tubes. From John, K4BAI with 3,to Butch, NK8I with 30! Worked 20 & 40 only. Thanks to all and to the planners.

From Steve K2DEP, SKCC #9273T

This was so much fun even with not so good conditions on 40M and 1.52W, according to my QRPometer, of a 4 tube portable room heater. Very warm in that room. Thanks to all who pulled me in, even out in WI, MI and AL. Took a little break and ragchewed with a fellow SKCCer about my rig. You can't really be over indulged in the sprint less you lose sight of the fun side. Take that from a 1 year 2 month ham veteran. It is always a challenge to work with homebrew equipment + QRP. In the photo is an Altoids box that contains a Hi-Mite filter which works very well with my R-71a. Very nice product for me. Hope to see you all at the end of the month. Best of 73s. Steve

From Kerry WD5ABC, SKCC #12

I had almost zero time to get on the air this weekend but I did sneak out to the shack long enough to make 2 contacts. I normally enter as QRP but since I didn't have much time and the conditions were pretty poor I just left the Flex 3000 at 100 watts. I didn't get the old Drake Twins back on the air in time so I didn't get to hand out any tube bonuses, maybe some other time.

From Lee K1LEE, SKCC #7246T

I only got to operate about four hours but I still had a great time. I tried using a bug part of the time but it seemed like some ops had trouble copying me so I apologize to those ops.

From Curt WA2JSG, SKCC #3018T

Just one tube here, but cannot count it as it's mounted as a nick-nack (under the monitor hi hi). Ran 75w from my IC-7200 to an all-band vertical (elevated). Mostly used my trusty British Kent Straight Key, but did squeak off a couple with my Czech Key. The sun was out, so I didn't spend as much time at the radio as I had planned. Good to work old (and new) friends, but esp my SKCC mentor of a few years ago, Drew AF2Z. His videos were valuable to me in starting out in SKCC.

Conditions were very bad in Southern California. I had to check to see if my antenna was attached to the rig.

The bad news is IT WAS!!


From Don KF7DS, SKCC #8281T

Fun WES and a lot of work at times. On Saturday and Sunday mornings on 20m, I could hit the Eastern and Southern seaboards from OR easily, but could hit nothing in between and in CA for hours...I could barely hear Ed/W7GVE and Tony/K6ELQ until late afternoon, and could not hear Bert/F6HKA at all...definitely different. Worked many new high numbers as well.

Highlight of the weekend was sitting on my back porch playing with a new IC7000 and a 4-band HyEndFed antenna running 50w...after sending CQ for a few minutes andabosrbed with learning the rig, Walt/LW3EX came out of nowhere...at first I thought it was W3EX but that did not make any sense until he sent his call several more times...too focused on the new toys. Best, Don KF7DS


From Jim N5JPX, SKCC #8672T

A great WES with some very interesting sounds! Heard nothing on 80 and nothing on 10. 20 meters was the workhorse band from here but managed to get Bert, F6HKA and Ed, W7GVE on 15 meters. 40 was noisy but produced 7 Q's. Thanks to all who worked my 5 watt effort and a special thanks to Pete, W1PNS for 2xQRP contact. Put my KX3 to work for this WES and thought I had it connected to the power supply. Apologies to Tom, WA4ZOF for the sudden silence. The thing just went dark and then I realized the power supply wasn't turned on. Got a bit over 4 hours out of the internal batteries. Thanks to the organizers and this great group of SKCC operators.

The old Globe Chief fired up and worked well on 40 meters, thanks for all the great qso's, even a few rag chews! In spite of all the xx9 reports I recieved, I am standing by for those little "cards" the Official Observers like to send out. Someone on the reflector made the comment about having this sprint during the winter, I agree. Man these hollow transistors give off a lot of warmth! (smell good too) 73 all, what a fun sprint!

Settled in for some operating Sunday afternoon and discovered the WES going on - with only 2 hours left. Lots of fun. Wish I would have realized sooner and had more time to spend. Ran an Oak Hills Research 100A at 5 watts into a ground-mounted Tarheel screwdriver with 8' radiator, 48" capacitance hat & 30 untuned radials. Operated 20 meters only. Looking forward to the next WES. 73, John.

From BRUCE AA5CO, SKCC #10643

My second WES was just as much fun as my first one in May. I exceeded my QSO total from May this month by late Saturday evening with just hit-n-miss operating. The friendly, relaxed atmosphere really makes this a fun event. I got some good "bug" practice (Vibroplex Original from 1963) as well. Making good progress towards my Centurion totals was icing on the cake for the weekend.

Had more time to operate this time when I didn't think I was going to be able to do any of it! Had a blast! Can't wait for the next one!

From Dennis W8VN, SKCC #3141T

Good fun. Next time I need more tubes!

From Jim K2MIJ, SKCC #5941T

Yaesu F-817nd @ 1 watt/ Indoor dipole

Bands were crummy so I only popped in every once in a while to have a listen. Managed to work 5 stations on the indoor dipole...Was very happy to meet Bert F6HKA on 15 and as always no matter what antenna I try, Bert hears me!

I had a lot of fun using the old Drake C-Line again. I didn't remember what a fine Receiver it was after using the Flex for so long. Ran QRO for the first time in months. Thanks to everybody and to the SKCC for such a fun Theme.

P.S. I'll use the Flex in the next W.E.S though. Hi Hi

From Andy UU1CC, SKCC #3072C

Thanks, guys, it was a really heartwarming (and glowing) event! I have to apologize: my clicks were too widespread - it was not a best idea to amplify a keyed T.N.T. exciter, but one day a year it should be possible, eh?

Receiver: Military 8 tubes R311 "Omega";

Transmitter: Push-Pull TNT Exciter/Doubler (5W) + GG Amplifier (40W measured output);

Aerial: 2x200ft V-beam directed to West Coast;

Key: Early Speed-X bug

Most DX: VQ9JC/mm, VK4TJ, K6III

p.s. George N2JNZ sounds as powerful as usual :)

From Noel K8NB, SKCC #3112T

For this month I pulled the Drake TR-4 off the shelf. This was my Father's radio, and the one I used for my first contact, back in 1976. Went thru it, but it has not made it to the operating desk, so worked WES from the workbench. Only had bits of time on Sunday, but had fun.

From Ed N7EDK, SKCC #7534T

On vacation here on the west coast of FL. Have hardly been on the air due to the constant rain and thunderstorms.

Also too many other distraction for me here, so at least I got two contacts in so I wouldn't miss the WES.

See everyone next month from home in AZ.......73


From allen KA5TJS, SKCC #5172T

Went to HamCom in Plano, TX and got back about 01:00pm. I made a few contacts and then thunderstorms moved in and had to unplug. Oh well, better score next month.

From DON KA1KU, SKCC #9399

Made Centurion as of June 10. Thanks Frank W4HAY for #100!

Skipped using Collins Receiver. Had trouble with xmit-rcv switching. Hope to get full Collins station with 32S-1 running one of these days.

Now to work on Tribune!

Thanks All


From Mike VA2NB, SKCC #120C

I only had time for a few token QSOs in this month's WES. Band conditions were

quite poor. Till next time. 73 - Michael VA2NB/VE3WMB


From Bernard F5DE, SKCC #6247T

Another pleasure to be active during the 4 last hours of the event.

13 NA stations worked, 1 F, 1 YU, 1 G, 1 SM

+ DX VK4TJ (20 m), VQ9JC/MM (20 m) and LW3EX (10 m)

73 to all and see you soon !


From ED WB0CLL, SKCC #9600

BAND CONDITIONS NOT GOOD IN MY AREA. DID MANAGE WORK BERT IN FRANCE ON 15M. HAD TO SCRAPE THE NOISE FLOOR FOR A LOT OF CONTACTS. MOST CONTACTS WERE SOILD STATE RIGS.

From RAY WB0PYF, SKCC #5169T

Had fun, band conditions in Midwest were tough. QRP still rocks, Ray

From Harold VE5BCS, SKCC #3946

I had to miss most of the test

From Walter K5EST, SKCC #940

My first WES! Was fun! Next WES, the Vibroplex Champion gets dusted off!

From Jose VE3DTI, SKCC #7020

Great experience. It was nice to hear so much good straight-key CW, often at a QRS speed. I much enjoyed this first SKCC WES and hope to participate again in the future. My rig was a KX3 at 5W; my my antenna was a 43 ft. vertical wire and the key was the Nye Viking on the picture. 73 de Jose VE3DTI (SKCC Nr. 7020).

From Mike AC0PR, SKCC #7033T

First time on the air in over a year! Only a few contacts, but a WES is just what I needed to get back into it. Thanks, fun as always.

From CECIL K5YQF, SKCC #1820T

Guess there are not too many boat anchors out there -- at least I didn't find too many. Maybe it's time to get go through the old handbooks and get ready for the next year!

From vern/T0 W9HLY, SKCC #6672T

To little time this weekend.

From Mark K7MJG, SKCC #9295

My goal this month was 20 QSO's. Got 25. Lots of fun! Thanks everyone! 73.

From Jerry K9PMV, SKCC #1438T

Rig for this event was my Hallicrafters SX 101 & HT 32. Tube total was 35, combined weight = 150#, price new in 1958 dollars was $970.00. Fun to operate but my TS 520 from 1970 will run circles around it. After 23 QSO's it seem that I had worked everyone who participated. Worked only 40m & 20m. Anyhow, happy to work you all and to give out some tube numbers. 73 and see you at the next event

Haven't participated in a WES Sprint for a while. Good to hear a nice level of activity.

From WALT W5ALT, SKCC #103T

Not a lot of time and had thunderstorms in the area as well, but at least I was able to play a little bit. Enjoyable as always!

From Gary KF7WNS, SKCC #9895

I enjoyed the sprint and am looking forward to next time. Being crystal controlled is a definite disadvantage. TX:Drake 2-NT(50W) RX:Drake R-4B VFO:Heathkit HG-10B Ant:Inverted Vee @ 35ft. Some people took issue with the tone of my VFO and did'nt think I should be on the air with it(probably not). Others were willing to overlook the small matter when they realized I was worth 16 Tubes! I need some help building a DDS VFO for my Drake 2-NT. 73's and thanks to all who put up with the chirp and drift, Gary/KF7WNS.

From ED W1EJ, SKCC #1594T

So many things to do over the weekend but I got one contact in right before the close!

From Bob KW3F, SKCC #2456

Getting active again. Only had a short time to play but had fun and looking forward to the next one!

From Bob/T23 AA2FD, SKCC #8641T

Heathkit SB-300 + SB-400. Wish I had more than a couple of hours (including tube warm-up time). I've been way to busy with other things to get on the air much any more. Will be making up for that at Field Day this year, running the GOTA station.

73!


From CHARLIE N0CVW, SKCC #9074

Had to work this weekend. But I made it on for a few minutes.

From bob K2OGT, SKCC #5266T

lots of fun even withbad cond.

From Garth KF7ATL, SKCC #5914T

It's been a few months since I participated in WES. Disappointing band conditions this time, but still it was good to be back.

From Paul NG7Z, SKCC #802T

Just a couple of hours available this month. We are working on our home to get it ready for sale. Thanks for the QSO's. 73 Paul NG7Z

From Finn WB2UWU, SKCC #1708

Good theme for the WES, but as someone suggested, it should be scheduled during a winter month for the benefit of those who operate the boat anchors. Thanks to all the ones who make the SKCC events possible and enjoyable.

From Rick K0KEX, SKCC #5220T

Not a BOAT ANCHOR for sure..the pix is the "TOP FUEL HYDRO" final at John Haas Memorial Drag Boat Classic. I operated portable from Wheatland, Mo using a IC-706MKIIG Navy FP key & Hustler ant w/40/20M coils. Thanks to WB0PYF K2HT N3FLL & WA3RF for QSO's also WB4JJJ 1/2 QSO due to rig problems.

FYI: pix L to R "Problem Child" / "Speed Sports" they run 1000 ft in 3.5 +/- seconds at around 240 MPH. My girl friend's SON is driver in the "Speed Sports" boat.

Boats & radio...what a fun weekend...73 TU Rick

From Bill W0EJ, SKCC #10440T

Way too busy to operate this weekend dangit.... See you all next month.

From Jim VQ9JC/MM, SKCC #8233T

All contacts were on 20 this time as nothing was heard on 10 or 15. It was a fun weekend anyway.

From Steve N8CPA, SKCC #8

A rather busy weekend. I listened when I could and answered those I heard calling on 40M only.

From KEN VE7KBN, SKCC #5533T

Camping at Bear Lake BC Provincial Park north of Prince George BC.

Operated 5w HB1B to Buddipole Vertical. Heard a lot more

stations than heard me! Still- fun to get a little SKCC

stuff in out in the wilds!
