From Steve K4JPN, SKCC #2402T

Got off and on Sunday as time permitted. Conditions seem to be best on 20M, but glad I could work W9DLN on 15M. Been a while since I have had a QSO on 15M. Steve K4JPN

From Mark N9YDZ, SKCC #9855C

Great WES! Really enjoyed it. Thank you to everyone involved. Looking forward to the next WES.

From PHIL KB0ETU, SKCC #4542T

This was a rough one especially Saturday with storms in the area and another contest going on. It was a challenge and still fun. Sunday was a busy day, so didn't have much time for the sprint. Thanks to all that participated. Hope to hear you all in the SKS later this month. 72/73 Phil

From John G0RDO, SKCC #2133T

Conditions just about as bad as I have known them to be, plus a big TEST. Still enjoyed myself HI.

I used a large 19th century Double Current key, nickel plated for "use in the Colonies"

From Brian K7TKT, SKCC #6695C

Short on time this weekend but I got in a couple of hours. I decided to set up the portable hex beam in the back yard and work from there. Unfortunately I put it too close to the house (lots of QRN). Sorry for those I couldn't pull out. Next month I hope to take the set up to the mountains where it will be a lot quieter. Thanks for the QSOs. 73, Brian

Skidded home from vacation Sunday evening just in time to get in a little WES time.

From Rick WU1V, SKCC #9293T

Enjoyed this sprintathon immensely despite difficult band conditions. The first day was nearly a bust due to the ubiquitous IARU contesters, and I worked in spotty fashion, 5 minutes here 20 minutes there, depending on activity on the bands. Most Q's on Sunday. Contacted 23 different SPCs, but only one DX, Canada. Had my best results on 40M, nearly half my Q's. My QRP sigs made it from MA to the west coast and Arizona I'm pleased to report, despite severe QRN and QSB. Contacted 10 of the 13 "colonies", but couldn't rouse Delaware, Rhode Island or South Carolina, always tough states for me to work. Surprised that I didn't hear or work any Missouri Outlaws this time, since they're usually very much active, but that could be band conditions again. Thanks to all whom I worked, and I look forward to the next WES. 72/73 Rick

From Pete W1PNS, SKCC #4853T

Had a great -- if relatively brief -- time operating from Lobstercon in Maine. It's New England's premier QRP gathering. The lobsters (all you can eat) were definitely QRO! For those of you trying to figure out if the ME I was giving out instead of MA was legit, it was. ;-) Thanks to all who participated, regardless of your final score!

Yaesu FT-817nd @ 1 watt/Delta loop @ 10 feet

Only had 1 hour to work the WES and worked 40 meters for the hour. managed to make it count though, grabbed 3 Colony states for the some bonus points... see ya next month! 73/72 de Jim K2MIJ


From RAY WB0PYF, SKCC #5169T

Conditions tough hr, best part was the WES fell on my birthday. QRP rocks again. 72's

From Joe WS9E, SKCC #3859T

I only spent about a half hour on the air. I got on between outside activities. Worked only 20 and 40 meters. The bands seemed marginal when I was on. Worked several newer members. Great to hear you on!

From Bill WV1N, SKCC #6622

My newly restored blue racer worked nicely. Halfway through my power supply developed problems and I had to switch to an old Radioshack 2.5a supply. 40 meters was my workhorse cause 20 was useless until the IARU contest was over.

From Charles K0CW, SKCC #4962T

Got started late Sunday. Great time and bonus choice.

From Dave W3NP, SKCC #3182T

I started out Saturday evening on 20 meters but it didn’t take long to realize that another crappy contest was in full swing. I went to 40 and had a few contacts before the contesters slithered there and by later in the evening that band was taken over. Watched TV with the XYL for awhile and got back on later on the 80 meter band and was pleasantly surprised that it was fairly quiet and had some activity. I made about 10 contacts and then went to bed.

I did have some success on 20 for a few hours Sunday afternoon. I ended up back on 40 for a few more before QRT’ing for church at about 6 pm. Overall I guess I spent about 4 or 5 hours operating in the WES

I had started out in the house using my Ten Tec Eagle at 5 watts but when I realized the contest was on I decided to make a fun operating event out of it and took my Elecraft K2-10 out on the screened porch and ran it from a battery pack. I had a cozy little light and a bottle of A&W root-beer. It was a hot summer night. The operating position was actually much darker than the photo makes it appear. Used my 1915 Vibroplex bug and logged on paper and occasionally came in and updated the K2RFP logging program. My memory worked better than usual because I didn’t have any dupes!! I was able to work 6 colonies.

Thanks to all who pulled me out and for the nice qso’s. 72 de West Virginia.

From Ron WX4RM, SKCC #8064T

Conditions were better on Saturday, but the other contest pretty much walloped my 5 watt peanut whistle. Sunday had lots of qrn and qsb, but at least I was able to be heard on the West coast. Too bad the 13 colonies were not on the West Coast HiHi.

From Mike W8MDE, SKCC #4877T

Fun WES as always. 20 meters sounded pretty dead when I checked from my location. Don't know whats up with that. Checked 80m on Saturday but it was noisy so I just stayed on 40 meters. Used 100 watts and keyed with a Vibroplex Original and N3ZN Straight key. Thanks everyone for the QSOs. WA3RF/qrp -Nice qrp signal Emigdio well done. Mark, KI0I Thanks Mark for the contact, sorry for calling you Milt. It takes a while for my gray matter decoder to get warmed up!

From Jose VE3DTI, SKCC #7020

I only had a few hours on Sunday for this WES Sunday.The upper bands were closed and the mid-ones remained erratic. Nevertheless I was for the first time able to put to use the little Palm Portable Key (PPK), which I quite liked. Rig: KX3 @ 5.0W (actual output 4.5W). Ant: 43 ft cable up a maple tree, somewhat vertical. Thank you all and 73. Jose VE3DTI.

From BOB AA6AC, SKCC #6276T

Conditions remain POOR I think. Contest-contest-and more

contesters on 20m. 15m not doing much. 10m doing nothing.

Even had request by KF7WNS for 10m but no joy. K6ELQ had

the big guns on 20m while I herd little (he has log-periodic and kw). HOPE bands return to good soon. Been in

toilet long time now. Maybe August will be better. HOPE SO.

Got my lawn done between 15 and 20m tries. AA6AC Bob #6276T


From Bill NZ1D, SKCC #7147

Torn between "movin and a-groovin" CW of IARU vs SKCC on Sat. IARU won. Sori, my bad.

From Jim AD0AB, SKCC #9667T

As always, lots of fun! I used a bug for the first time so, sorry for the extra dots :)

From Mike N5YG, SKCC #6304T

Really enjoyed the IARU contest and the CME as well, just kidding! Still, a part of the challenge and I had fun! Thanks from a non-colony and 73 from AR.

From Larry K0LWV, SKCC #3571

Rig IC-718 Longwire Vee Beam. Bencher RJ-1 straight key. Cndx not good for me.

From JOHN KA4BAT, SKCC #10395C

I wasn't able to work as many hours as I had hoped; and other contests running at the same time monopolized 20 meters. Still, I enjoyed myself the time I was pounding my key. Changes I am in the process of making with equipment and technique will hopefully improve my score in future . I look forward to the next WES. - John

From Slim K0SKC, SKCC #10739C

Conditions seemed poor here until Sunday afternoon when things started to pick up some. Contacts made in this WES should be enough to get our club station it's "T".

From Jim N5JPX, SKCC #8672T

The band conditions were not good here. I guess that's why all the "testing" was being done hi. I did manage to put together a few hours on the radio and had a good time. I certainly appreciate all the tolerate operators who work the QRP signals. The colonies were a lot easier to find last weekend than this weekend. Thanks for the contacts and thanks to the organizers.

Yaesu FT-817ND to an 80 meter loop using my Vibroplex straight key.

HF conditions were really rough this time.

From Bernard F5DE, SKCC #6247T

Hi everybody !

Sorry I was not at home for this July WES.

I hope to be there next month !

See you soon for a brag QSO ?

Best 73 from France.

MY FIRST SPRINT

From RON NT8P, SKCC #7312T

Only got AC2C and AF3Z in my man cave 5w vert ant, with my HB1B But happy to get them. At least it wasn't a shut out. Then back to the shack Bert F6HKA came through and K6ELQ were my longest contacts. Happy for every one. See you next month if the creeks quit rising. 73 Ron E

From Bob KW3F, SKCC #2456

Only needed DE for sweep. Fun time, albeit short for me as usual. 73!

From TIM WS8K, SKCC #9953

Great Contest! I, for one, really enjoyed it.

From Joe W1HFF, SKCC #6309C

The current heat wave kept me off for a while but managed to make some contacts and have some fun. Thanks everyone.

From MIKE K8NS, SKCC #10580T

Worked 10m thru 80m this WES. Sunday morning 10m was really fun netting 54 qsos. Chasinf the colonies was great and got my sweep/sweep on 20m with John G0RDO being my GB and last one needed. I made both John and myself work for it because I called and worked him with 5w after he said he couldn.t work/hear any stateside stations. Sorry John! Thanks Bert F6HKA for taking time out from IARU test and working me on 20m. Great to work Bob K5ZOL/KP2 on 4 bands and Walt LW3EX on 3 bands. Also special thanks to Dan W9DLN for offering to sweep my carport after he swept the WES. The IARU contest offered a unique challege to operate 20m but provided good experience for working thru QRM. Also thanks Jerry K6III for all the fun/help during the WES on the sked page; you got a great sence of humer and the patience of a saint. Overall a very interesting WES. 73 and tnx qso to all.

I had fun after the IARU thing finally ended.

From Steve AI9IN, SKCC #8759

A rough weekend. Ionosphere was not cooperating, at least from southeast Indiana. Still got 2 colonies out of my 5 QSOs. MFJ machines on 20 and 40 mtrs running 5 watts into dipoles. QRP Rules!

AI9IN's soapbox image


From Ray KJ4LEN, SKCC #6956T

Condx were terrible at my qth. Stations that are usually 599 were 559 or worse with deep qsb. Most contacts were made on 40M. I did snag Bert(F6HKA) on 15M and got 5 of the Colonies. I'll see everyone next time. Ray

From Walt LW3EX, SKCC #3804T

A weekend with geomagnetic storming (weak CME impact) didn`t help much HF prop...

Despite all, conditions were good... 10m was open to EU even though only heard G0RDO and F6HKA, the surprise was listening to KB4QQJ calling me, TU Randy! In the late evening 20m was open to states with very good signs I was able to work 5 original colonies (but... couldn`t hear a single MOutlaw, weird!)

QSO stats: 27 on 14MHz, 11 on 21MHz and 9 on 28MHz

Thanks all SKCC fellas for another FUN Sprint BCNU 73, Walt- ..-

Fun!

From Werner N8BB, SKCC #5433T

Thanks for all the qso's, met a few new hams this time around and many old time friends. I was running my usual 1 watt to a dipole with my K3.

From Bill KE3O, SKCC #9282T

Tried something different this month. Operated 20m mobile just 150 yards from the crashing surf of the Atlantic ocean. Lost my sidetone oscillator on the first QSO. Tnx to those who copied my poorly formed code, espically Tony (K6ELQ)... 3000 miles away. Looking fwd to next month. 73, Bill

had a ball, and figured out how to add my bonus can't wait till next time

From George K3EMS, SKCC #8687

I thought the band conditions were rather challenging- and then my antenna decided to cop an attitude. Good time none the less.

From Dick K2HT, SKCC #5087T

Did not have a lot of time this weekend but wanted to make an appearance. Tnx for QSO's C U next sprint.

From Julio NP3CW, SKCC #2632T

NOT MANY STATIONS ACTIVE FROM EUROPE THIS TIME.

NOT ABLE TO GET ONE SKCC MEMBER FROM EUROPE.

TNX TO K0SKC MO OUTLAWS ARC FOR NEW NUMBER AND LW3EX WALT FOR THE ONLY SA STATION WORKED.

GOOD LUCK TO ALL.

From Ted K4UFT, SKCC #4289T

IARU Contest made Saturday a Lost Cause for working our WES. Band conditions weren't good plus I decided to work QRP. Three contacts ... 1 on 15M and 2 on 20M. Worked only one of the 13 colonies.

With house renovations going on, I operated from a small folding table and an end-fed wire upstairs taped across the ceilings of three rooms (about 35'). Even with the limitations it was still fun.

Icom 703+ @ 5 Watts with Navy FP key.

Bands were kinda poor and things a little slow.Didn`t put in much time this go around. On to the next SKS!73 all Mark

From Scott N3JJT, SKCC #255T

I did not get in until mid Sunday afternoon. Hard to sit in front of the radio when the wx is so nice. Bands are terrible. IC718 to a G5RV and Butternut Vertical. 1953 Vibro Champion.

73..Scott


From Ron W6FPS, SKCC #2126C

I guess Saturday wasn't the best day to try out my newly constructed portable 20 meter vertical and use the K1. I did put one in the log on Sunday to keep the streak going. I did hear one of our regulars working that other contest, but I want name names, HI Hi.

73,Ron


From Bob K5ZOL/KP2, SKCC #3945T

This is the first time I've had an opportunity to work a whole WES. Being on vacation helps. Bands were lousy, but had a fine time.

From Pat AC0SR, SKCC #7072

Only got on for a few hours before work, but had fun and had QSO's with some folks I hadn't met before. Thanks!

From Gerald WA5AFD, SKCC #8150T

Only operated on final afternoon but enjoyed the sprint as always. 15 meters was the band of choice for much of the afternoon. Tried 10 for a short while and thanks to Rick, k7CHS for the one 10 meter QSO. Also thanks to Bert with the nice QSO from F6HKA and all those who participated and those who make the sprints possible. TS-850s and AV640 vertical.

From JOHN K5ENA, SKCC #3045T

40 and 20 were not the best. Did not hear any of the original 13 colonies. Managed to work PR.

From Art WK2S, SKCC #9434T

I guess there is always cause for complaint, band condx, IARU, etc., ...but I had a blast!

10/13 colonies. Thanks to Bert and John for France and England.

Thanks to all.


From Jerry K6III, SKCC #6830T

IARU on Saturday was all over the bands!

From Jason KD0EKT, SKCC #9435T

In and out of the shack all weekend, had a lot of chores, so low score this month. And NONE of the 13 colonies! This was also the first time I've ever used a cootie, but other ops seemed to be able to copy it!

From John K4BAI, SKCC #3280

FT1000MP, Alpha 78, 1 KW, Vibroplex Deluxe Hand Key, TH6DXX, dipole. Time was limited to about 40 minutes of the last 1 1/4 hours this month. No signals on 10 and 15 meters. 20 was pretty good, but skip was pretty long, so other former colony QSOs were difficult. 40M was pretty good to the eastern half of the country with no real skip zone after about 10 days of long skip on 40M even during the middle of the day. Thanks for all QSOs.

From ED WB0CLL, SKCC #9600

band conitions not very good at my location, but managed to work many stations.

From Curt WA2JSG, SKCC #3018T

Nice fun event. Rig here IC-7000 running 50w to an all-band vertical (elevated). Big ole English Kent Straight Key.

From Kieth WI0S, SKCC #2048T

Good time spent on a funky wx weekend. Funky bands too. Everything from S9 plus QRN to dead quite "black hole" condx's. Would have been fun to have had a legal output amp for this one!! See everyone next month.

From STEVE K2DEP, SKCC #9273T

Sat was a bust with one contact, the reliable F6HKA Bert. Tnx fer that contact Bert. Sun I was on and off and decided to try this 2 transistor breadboard Xmtr Bill (KE3O) and I have been working on that pushes out a mean 160mw of power. After about an hour of CQ, to my surprise, I got a 559 from K4AXF in Grottoes, VA about 140 miles from my QTH. WOW! This Xmtr only has 14 components. Love this hobby. The last 1 1/2 hours of the WES I received many QSO's at QRO. I was surprised to work K4CQF in SC and N3RSD in DE (Thanks gents), but no RI or NH this go around. Also never heard a PA station (SRI Ron at AC2C, just never heard you). Must be a skip problem. Thanks to all and best of 73 to all.

This is my first event that I'm sending in logs..Had a great time but worked only 10 contacts..73's Dave

From Kerry WD5ABC, SKCC #12

The only bonus I got was Bert, F6HKA, he's always got a great signal even when the bands aren't too hot. I didn't have a lot of time to spend but it was nice to see several of the newer (10,000+) guys and a few of the 3-digit guys too.

73,

Kerry, WD5ABC


From Jim AF3Z, SKCC #3034T

An interesting time! I was more available this weekend and got about 6 hours in. Propagation was a bit challenging and I changed bands fairly often to see what was happening. I tried to pry open 10m a number of times by calling CQ for a while. It wasn't until Sunday afternoon that I got my one qso on 10... with Dan, W9DLN, and he was coming in very nicely! Where was everybody else? ;-) I was running my Omni VI @ 50 w to my 80-40-20 fan dipole. Most of the time I was using my Vibroplex original to be easier on my arm. It was a lot of fun; thanks for all the contacts! 73 -Jim, AF3Z

From ED W7GVE, SKCC #729T

It was inevitable that the WES would fall on a day where the condx were terrible.... After calling W5ZR five times with no luck I gave up and had a nice nap... Will try again next month//73 - ED W7GVE

From RICH W4RQ, SKCC #8699T

I regret having only a few hours to operate, but WES is always FUN! Thanks to all.

I worked all weekend but was able to get a few Q's. Tnx to all who pulled out my QRP signal. Condx were not good at my QTH.

From Rick K7CHS, SKCC #8573T

Had 3 80m contacts, 2 15m contacts and 1 10m contact all the rest were 40m and 20m of course. Every signal from the east was very weak at my station the entire time. Had fun and thanks to all. 73

Conditions were not very good this time and I had to manage between both IARU and WES. I had to stop 3 hours before the end due to a voluntary QRM but as always it was fun. Thank you so much everyone I could contact. 73 and see you in next WES. Bert

From Joe KB3KJS, SKCC #6594T

Tough band conditions! I had a good run the last hour though and 40 meters started to cooperate. This is truly one of my favorite events!

From BERT K6CSL, SKCC #4486

I worked these 3 SKCC stations that I ran across in the course of operating the IARU HF Championship. They also counted for IARU Zones 6 and 7 for that event. I had hoped to be back on the air for the last couple of hours of WES, but I was pretty tired after keeping my butt in the chair for the entire 24 hour event. TNX to Phil, N6CMF, here in CA, who I worked on 80m at 07-13-2013-12:41Z, Russ, K0LUW in NE, worked 07-13-2013 at 21:19Z and Gary, KF7W in OR, worked 07-14-2013 at 05:07Z. 73's to all and I hope to have a little more time for WES next month. Bert, K6CSL

Very little time. Left for vacation Sun AM. See you all next month. 73

From Bill K8WSN, SKCC #4986T

Had a great time as always. Was going to stop at 70 QSOs but 40 M got too exciting for me to quit and I'm glad I stayed around to the end. Its always a blast when you happen to be on the air when band conditions are peaking, isn't it? Special congrats to W0EJ (5w) and N8BB (1w) who were both booming in. Your antennas are doing a super job! So TNX to all for another fun experience. 73 Bill

Didn't get but a few hours the whole weekend to play in the WES. But as always, it was fun, good practice, thx to my 7 contacts for pulling out my 5 watts !

From Bill W0EJ, SKCC #10440T

Had some tough conditions this weekend, thunder storms here in SD were challenging and limited openings to the east coast/Europe limited bonus points. I still had a great time and enjoyed another WES thanks to all you great folks out there in SKCC. Thanks to the volunteers that keep this group going and maintained. Without you there would be no SKCC at nearly 11,000 members. 72/ 73 Bill

From Jerry DU3/W5LFA, SKCC #4448T

Was hoping to get at least get a colony, but, the IARU contest and propagation was against me.

From Greg WA1VIL, SKCC #443T

Not the greatest conditions but fun as always. My 5W signal managed to squirt its way to California, France and Argentina and lots of places in between.Thanks for the good ears! Contacts made on 40 to 10 meters-alas nothing during the 6 meter opening. Too hot for "patio portable" so it was the TS480 throttled back in the shack, the G5RV and my trusty flameproof. 73 all and looking forward to the next WES.

From Drew AF2Z, SKCC #2082T

Propagation was a little weird: many stations sounded "distant" and vy QSB... Used an indoor antenna in anticipation of my 7 year old endfed wire having to come down... Got 11 colonies, no RI or NH... My rig: K3 at 10 watts; 40m folded dipole in attic; Junker straight key.

From George N2JNZ, SKCC #2836T

Not many SKCC ops on Saturday night ... IARU test kept the numbers down .. Thanks to Walt , LW3EX for a 20 meter contact !! And thanks to my buddy Karen , W4KRN for a contact !!! Better luck next time ....

In & Out during this one but some nice contacts, DU3/W5LFA 20M

K5ZOL/KP2 10M, and XE2X non-member on 6M while checking prop.

Was in South Dakota on a very fun family vacation in the Black Hills, and didn't get much operating time. Thanks to the 6 stations that pulled my QRP signal out from Hill City, SD. Worked one MO Outlaw neighbor (Larry K0LWV), and another Outlaw K0CW Dick.

The photo is of me hanging the antenna behind the little house we rented for the week.

From Bob AK4LP, SKCC #9308C

Busy weekend, but I did squeeze in some radio time. Had fun, the original colonies idea was a good one.

From Peter AK3X, SKCC #7217T

20 meters was a lost cause on Saturday, but was nice to hear all the CW activity anyway. My only 20M QSO was with the ever present W9DLN whom I also worked on 40M. Picked up a couple new "T"s towards Tx4, and a couple more points for 2xQRP, so a successful sprint in spite of only 9 contacts. See you all next WES. 72/73 Peter

From Jim ND9M, SKCC #8233T

I flew in from Diego Garcia (where I'm VQ9JC) just in time to get a couple hours in for this month's WES. Although I only had a 20M antenna, it was a fun time anyway even though my body was not happy with me for not hitting the sack!

From Ken VE7KBN, SKCC #5533T

Lots of QRM for much of the sprint. Stuck to 20m

and not many WES calls were heard. Anyway thanks for the sprint!


From ED W1EJ, SKCC #1594T

Worked the club station (K6SON)at our mini-dx outing and weekend camp out in Humboldt County on the Mattole River. Doublet in the trees above the tent. I only gave my info on about half of the club contacts. I did get one other member to make a couple contacts which was my main goal since he had not done any and has a lower number than mine. Fun as usual.

From ED and FRED K6SON, SKCC #10883

The Sonoma County Radio Amateurs set up in A.W. Way Park in remote Humboldt County.

From GREG K7SDW, SKCC #6224T

Bands were really busy with IOTA contest, so I backed out as the qrm was too great. Maybe next month? Nice to have another "unique" scoring plan for the WES. I hope all who worked the "long sessions of 24 hours got some earned sleep.

From Tony K6ELQ, SKCC #10250T

Apparently I did not do enough penance after the June SKS as the propagation gods are still angered at me. Only two contacts on 10M and very few on 15M and 40M. 20M was the place to be but most signals sounded like QRP/QRPp except of course the big IARU contest boys who were a real nuisance. Very few stations were armchair copy signal levels. Missed the sweep of the colonies, only working 10, and thanks to Bert, F6HKA, for France, on two bands. Tried hard but never could hear John, G0RDO, for UK. Most interesting contact was with Ken, W4KDK/KH6, who was running 5w QRP, which I initially heard very weakly off the back of my antenna. Mexico (XE1GXG) and Brazil (PS7HD) were both a surprise. A thanks to all for the QSO’s and made it an interesting and challenging WES.

A fun time. Collecting and keeping those Cooties, 11 @ 10 points improved the score. It was my pleasure to present Delaware to those who needed DE. Several "TUs for DE" Great fun. LoTW has been updated.

Band conditions were not very good. There lots of areas I never heard signals from. Noise was high most of the time. Forty Meters was the best band for my WES efforts. Twenty Meters was crowded by the WAE CW Contest. Still made lots of contacts at various times. The equipment used was the FT2000 running 80 watts to various antennas: vertical delta loop for 40, multiband centerfed doublet and a new EFHWD. Thanks for all the QSOs. Hope to see you next month.

From Ed K1EDG, SKCC #9625T

Built a Cootie Friday night out of anything I could find on the workbench. A scrap of wood, a hacksaw blade, some machine screws and nuts, some angle brackets and wood screws. Took about 1 hour and it worked. That is the good news, having never worked anyone other than a test Friday night I jumped into the WES with it.

Thank you to all the contacts I worked for all my fumbling at the key,I almost quit several times but stuck it out.

I do not think I will do that again! Back to the Bugs!!!
