From Joe KD2JC, SKCC #710T

Nice weekend for a Sprint. Also worked the NJ QRP Skeeter event outdoors. Surprised at the amount of cooties on the air. They sounded great. Thanks to all and 73.

From Randy KX1NH, SKCC #1050T

Was able to spend some time on Saturday. 15 was not usable here with WAE. I got to use my homebrew cootie. Looking forward to the next WES.

From Dick K2HT, SKCC #5087T

WES always fun es finally worked a Iowa member WA0ITP. Heard 3 different clubs participating, Hats off to the work that the clubs do for skcc. Thanks for QSO''s and looking forward to next sprint.

From Walt LW3EX/XP, SKCC #3804T

I had very little time for the WES, less than 2hs (while was wrkng) portable mobile around FD57, trying to RX from time to time... could hear WA7NB Art on 20m and F6HKA Bert on 15m, FB guys

Looking forward to the next, BCNU 73. Walt- ..-

From Lee K1LEE, SKCC #7246T

Thanks to everybody who came back to qrp power and put up with my sloppy fist on the homebrew "key." Big challenge for me, but lots of fun, as all Sprints are. The quarter is there for size comparison and estimate of the cost of components. Odd condx in CT - Saturday 40m was only band open, Sunday 20m was only band open. But that's ham radio. See you all next time! Vy 73, Lee K1LEE

From Roger W4LDA, SKCC #4789T

Mostly a 40 meter event for me, with lots of QRN.

From jim AD0AB, SKCC #9667T

As always it was a lot of fun. Thanks everyone for your QSOs especially cootie users.

From BERT K6CSL, SKCC #4486

I worked these in the midst of working the Worked Al Europe, CW Contest. It added to the fun weekend. Bert, K6CSL

From John G0RDO, SKCC #2133T

Good fun despite the contest QRM. Thanks for hearing me K1EDG Ed, KO1U Mark, KK4DSD Andrew, KX1NH Randy, WA7NB Art, KE1AF Abel, KC9PDX Kevin, OH7UG Timo, W9DLN Dan, F5DE Bernard, and a great DX QSO with Steve VK7CW in Tasmania on 20m.

Was intending to use a side swiper (TXK1) but my sending would have provoked lots of "QLF". So used a trusty big straight key, Marconi PS No213A.

From Evan WA4AAK, SKCC #10983

My first SKCC contacts as a new member! Wired up a straight key using alligator clips and talked to WB0PYF and K2HT while running 5W... not brave enough to try a cootie key yet! Thanks for the fun!

From randy KK4BNC, SKCC #8054

Thanks to all for making this such a great event.

From Mike N5YG, SKCC #6304T

Cndx not the best on Saturday. Some of the cootie ops were quite talented but all were an easy copy. 73 from AR!

From Larry K0LWV, SKCC #3571

Rig: IC-718. Antenna Longwire VEE beam up 28 Ft. Key Bencher RJ-1 straight key. No noise for a change on the bands, signals weak, QSB, low activity, only worked one outlaw: Larry KC0M in Branson. Worked no stations outside of U.S. Few stations using a cootie.

From Bob AK4LP, SKCC #9308C

Good fun, thanks guys!

From Jack KK0I, SKCC #2370T

Limited time to work event...last 2 1/2 hours. Was able to contribute a few contacts with my cootie key. Ran my Eagle, inverted vee and K4VIZ cootie key on 40 meters. Thanks for all the contacts folks. It was a fun event for the short time I was able to participate. 73, jack

From Joe KB3KJS, SKCC #6594T

Another fun WES! I had more time to operate this month. Tried to spend more time around the prime time windows but missed a couple of hours Saturday morning and evening which probably set me back quite a few Q's. I was shooting for 200 Q's. I worked some really good Cootie OPs! My rig was a K3 at 100W with my trusty 1958 Vibroplex Lightning Bug. It can almost send CQ WES on it's own now! Hi Thanks to all and 73 -Joe

From Rob G4LMW, SKCC #4454T

Great fun to be in the WES with my side-swiper. Nice to meet up with old friends again

From Steve VK7CW, SKCC #10820C

This was my first WES and what a pleasure. It was challenging at times, fighting with the QRM and QRN to dig out those weak signals, but I enjoy a good challenge and had a lot of fun. I used my Soviet Dust Proof Key (TKF) pictured next to my (much smaller) Czech Army Key. Many thanks to all who participated and I cant wait till next months WES, 73 de Steve

I was planning to run QRP but changed my mind after my first contact (tnx Dan for hearing my 5 watts) and went QRO with 50w. Fun time. Even got a few contacts in the NJQRP Skeeter event with my 5w IC-703. Switched back and forth from my IC-7000 and IC-7200. Keys used were a Kent Str Key and a Bencher Str Key. No cooties here (hi hi). Butternut Vertical antenna (my only HF antenna). See y'all next month!

From Carl N5XE, SKCC #6307T

Too many honey-do's - too little time, but always an enjoyable event.

From AL KC4ZA, SKCC #4421T

Thanks to all who made this WES a fun time. Quite a challenge operating QRP on a major contest weekend. Spent almost all the time I had on 40M since 20M and 15M were overrun by WAE boomers pointing their antennas at me to get across across the pond.

From Bruce AA5CO, SKCC #10643

I had very limited time this weekend but did achieve my WES goal of finishing my Centurion application with new SKCC numbers. As always, alot of fun.

From Dennis W5WIL, SKCC #9429

Started with a QRPme 'SuperTuna' at 900mw and R-75 on 40m. No sidetone. Quite interesting. Switched to IC-703 at 900mw for remainder. Cootie was a struggle for my mind. Thanks to all for their patience digging me out of the noise. N2LK couldn't quite hear me but gave a good try. KB3KJS and M3WT just over 1K miles at QRPp - fun. WES always a good time, nice folks.

From Jose VE3DTI, SKCC #7020

Only a few QSO's but glad to have been able to participate. 73 de Jose VE3DTI.

From Alan KA5VZG, SKCC #6264T

Terrible weather, noisy bands, but still fun. Got to work, Mark, KO1U, our first Senator on two bands. Senator in 11 days is a lot of work.

From Rick WU1V, SKCC #9293T

Put together a total of about 2 hours in bits and pieces over the two days between other non-ham projects but had fun just the same. Using my Yaesu FT-450D with a multi-band sloping dipole and Nye Speed-X straight key (I don't have a cootie). Most contacts were on 40 meters, a few on 20. The cootie users were in the minority if my record is any indication but I worked six (at least). Three 2-way QRP QSOs including one with Mark KO1U who was QRPp, nice going Mark! No DX stations heard/worked this time. Band conditions weren't great this weekend but my 5 watts here in MA earned RST 449 from Washington State. A couple of 339 reports, but most of received RST was 559 or better. 72 all, Rick

From Bob K5ZOL, SKCC #3945T

Focused on chasing down the members without a C ore a T.

Lots of activity. Enjoyed meeting new friends.


From ED W1EJ, SKCC #1594T

On vacation in Michigan, so a wire from a tree to my sister-in-law's roof and a KX1 with 2W out. Most important was the patience of a few other ops digging out my weak signal with only a couple repeats. Surprising 599 reports from Texas and AZ though.

From Rodney N4RAY, SKCC #285C

Really enjoyed using my home made cootie key it was a blast to get other qrp stations also,Saturdat night,40 meters is where I ended up getting most of my contacts,can't wait till next month

From Don KF7DS, SKCC #8281T

Thunderstorms and a soccer tournament limited my time on the radio, but was lucky enough to have a good run on 20m on Sunday morning before the bands see, to fall apart - had to go watch soccer anyway. Encountered a lot of high numbers and nice to see the club continue to grow. Best, Don

From Randy N8KQ, SKCC #8934T

Lots of fun agn. Tnx fer all the contacts es special tnx to all the cootie guys.. 73 Randy

From Bernard F5DE, SKCC #6247T

It was difficult to find a free frequency and to listen to weak signals during these four hours of traffic.

In the very middle of all the big WAE contest signals, I was glad to find some SKCCers to have a contact with.

However, this was another pleasant event to participate.

Cootie keys used here were a Vibroplex Vibro-Keyer (1986) and a Hi-mound MK-701 (1975).

Thank you all for contacts and see you next time !


From DAVE N9ZXL, SKCC #7114T

HELLO AGAIN.... USED THE FT817 AND NEW MA5B AT 35 FT AND 40 EFZ.. USED MY LATEST HB BUG AND ST. KEY ....SOMEHOW I HAD FORGOTTEN ABOUT THE WES UNTIL I HEARD BERT ON 15 MTRS...WOW, DON'T GET OLD.... HI... DIDNT SPEND TOO MUCH TIME WITH THE SATURDAY CONTEST GOING ON.. QRM !!!

SO, BACK TO THE SHOP AGAIN AND HOPE TO CU ALL IN SEP WES..THANKS AGAIN TO THE SKCC ORGANIZERS FOR ALL THEIR HELP IN CREATING THIS FUN FOR US...... LATER, DAVE N9ZXL/QRP 5 WTS.........


From Ed N7EDK, SKCC #7534T

Another busy weekend around the house playing catch-up. (Retiring in 22 weeks ! ) So didn't get very much time to participate in the WES. But had a good time as always !

Used my American Morse Single Lever/Sideswiper key along with the KX3 at 5 watts. I'd been using the key as a single lever paddle up to this point.

Had never tired using a sideswiper before,I need much more practice thou ! But I did well enough to get thru six contacts and collect three ops using the sideswipers !

Thanks as always to my contacts who put up with my slow sending on the cootie,I'll practice more for next time !

The 20 meter band seemed pretty good this time, I got some good sig reports for my 5 watts ! Only managed one 40 meter contact.

Everyone take care and see you next month......72/73.

From Dave W3NP, SKCC #3182T

I started rearranging and cleaning my station on Sat morning and it turned into a bigger project than I thought. Each time I installed another rig or accessory I would make a few Qso's. It turned out to be sort of fun that way and I ended up using all 4 rigs in the WES.

I thought condx were pretty bad as a whole. 20 meters and up were not much use because of that contest but I did manage a few on 20. 40 was pretty noisy due to storms on Sat eve.

I was able to catch 9 cooties and all with nice copy.

Rigs: Ten Tec Omni VII, Eagle, and Argonaut V, as well as the Elecraft K2-10 all running between 4 and 5 watts.

I mostly used my 1941 J-36 Vibroplex bug and also the Junker and even a J-38 at times.

Now, to finish my key and headphone switch-box and I will be all set for winter.

From Pete W1PNS, SKCC #4853T

I was operating on Putney Mountain in VT as part of New England SOTA Day and hoped to have time to squeeze in some WES contacts. But the chasers were running hot and heavy. And cell coverage wasn't great, so I couldn't spot myself on the K3UK sked page. Still, many thanks to Mark, KO1U, who caught me early on 40m for my one, count it one, WES contact. On the other hand, it's the easiest WES I've ever had to log. The picture shows my operating spot. Note the clipboard with the straight key attached. I really was set up for WES, really. ;-)

A lot going on so I didn't get to operate as much as I would have like. I do appreciate all the great contacts and operators. 73

From JOHN K8BAT, SKCC #10395T

It's been a while since I used my cootie, and it probably showed : ). And trying to adjust it on the fly is tough! It was fun; but guess I'm just a regular straight key kind of guy. Sorry for the extra dits and dahs. Due to family matters I wasn't on as long as I would have liked. Still, it was fun the time I was on the air. And yes, conditions weren't the best. But my ear tells me we have some darn good CW ops in SKCC! I look forward to next month.

From Ed K1EDG, SKCC #9625T

Built a hombrew Cootie out of what I could find. Took about one hour and hooked it up and it worked, that is the good part. Made 2 contacts with it Friday night and played with it. The bad part came when the WES started, I found the learning curve only whent down hill. Almost put it away several times but stuck it out till the end.

THANK YOU to everyone I worked with it! Sri for the fat fingers, the left side of my brain was not talking to my right hand very well!

From Frank AA2XB, SKCC #1681T

Enjoyed using my cootie the entire WES. About 1/3 of the contacts were with other cootie users and 20 of the 22 contacts were with other T's. Thanks to all who made this another enjoyable weekend , although due to other activities I was only able to work three hours on Sat. and three hours on Sun. but I did enjoy every minute of it.

From John KK4BOB, SKCC #8205T

The high point of this WES was working Gary KF7WNS in Portland, Oregon from here in Tallahassee, FL. I used to live in Corvallis and still feel a special affinity for the Pacific Northwest.

From George N2JNZ, SKCC #2836T

Last Sunday wasn't feeling so good and a week later (today) after 2 different antibiotics and pneumonia I worked the WES , WAE and Skeeter Hunt. I found out a bug user with a bad cold is a not so good thing to listen to ...... Worked a good bunch of buddies in the WES .... Tony and Randy , W4FOA and KB4QQJ made sweet sounds on the Cootie .... In the SKEETER HUNT I got 9 Skeeters and even got buddy Larry , W2LJ ... In the WAE got OH0R , TF/LX1NO and HA8A for Skeeter points .... Thanks all !!! I'll sound better when I get better

From Art WB8ENE, SKCC #3773T

I combined this WES with the Skeeter Hunt. Had limited time this weekend due to activities with grandchildren. Rig is Elecraft K1 at 5W with a Bencher RJ-1 straight key, and antennas used were ladder line fed 102' doublet at 15' and 20M dipole at 20'. See you in the next sprint. 73, Art

From Frank N3FLL, SKCC #10376C

I accomplished my goal of making it to the 50th C/T QSO

From Vaden NN4K, SKCC #9575T

Band conditions were not very good here with Saturday being the better of the two. Forty Meters was the best band for my efforts. The Sprintathon is always fun and thanks for all the QSOs. The equipment here was the FT2000 running 80 Watts to various antennas: a vertical 40 Meter Delta Loop (homebrew), a multiband center fed doublet and new for this QTH, an EFHWD. It seems to work very well. Hope to see you again in September Sprintathon. 72,73 de Vaden

From MIKE K8NS, SKCC #10580T

Built my cootie key for the contest using 2 J-38's back to back with T stand and plywood paddle, a sight to behold! Made qsos on 10m thru 80m and tried 160m, but no takers. My condolences to all who had to copy my cootie key especially at the start of the wes. Called vy few CQs until the end when I felt more confident with the contraption. 73 es tnx qso to all.

From PHIL KB0ETU, SKCC #4542T

Another good challenge. Only worked 5 on 20 meters and the

rest on 40. Another weekend where there wasn't enough time,

but at least improved on last month Thanks for all the contacts. 72/73 Phil


From Bob AA2FD, SKCC #8641T

Greetings from Orlando FL! Attending my son's college graduation, and staying with sister-in-law, so I brought along radio, tuner, and spool of wire. Random wire thrown over some bushes gave me an elevation of 6-10 ft (2-3 meters). Realized the noise I was hearing (S8) was most likely due to all of the air conditioning units, so turned random wire into a 20m loop, and noise level dropped. No cootie here, but did bring my new Czech army key (picked up at Berryville Hamfest last weekend, from Karen, W4KRN, SKCC 4495T), and enjoyed a rare free weekend at the radio.

I jumped in for about 50 minutes early on. Enjoyed it and may have been motivated to improve the design and construction of my homebrew cootie key and give it a try. Those I worked all sounded good. Usual setup here: Omni VI, 50 w, dipole way up at 15 feet... maybe :-). Tnx & 73. Jim, AF3Z

Glad to hear those cootie keys! Maybe I will continue practicing with mine. I'm very slow at present, but I love to hear them. Let's have some more sessions with cooties!

From CECIL K5YQF, SKCC #1820T

Great event. I was impressed with the fine "cootie" fists I worked. This was my first extended effort using the Vibroplex bug I got in April. My first contact with it was Mark, KO1U, on May 2 and I've been practicing ever since. It is much better on my wrist than the straight key I've used all these years. I was able to operate well beyond my usual 3 to 4 hours. Thanks to all. Cecil, K5YQF

From Dave/CO NE5DL, SKCC #5081T

Operated portable on the back patio /CO with a Begali HST, temp was 100 degrees. I set up on Saturday for the Skeeter Hunt contest on Sunday so with that setup I started out in WES. Used inverted Ls on a 20ft pole for 40M and 20M. Thanks to those who pulled my QRP signal out. Switched from paddles to cootie and Worked kd8ufc in the qrp section of 20M during the Skeeter Hunt.

From Jerry N0JRN, SKCC #8701T

Wasn't planning on working this WES but I got sucked in on the last day. Used my VizKey's and ran my paddle as a swiper part of the time. I'm not very good with those things so spent most of the time on my bugs. The rig in the pic is a homebrew 15 watt rig, CW only, that covers all HF bands including WARC. Has built in K10 keyer chip, Dual VFOs, Adjustable band width down to 200 hz and a few other little goodies. Took me about 5 months to build and it's a ton of fun to play with. Anyway, hope everyone had a good time. Thanks to those of you that answered my mini signal. See ya'll again next month hopefully. 73 Jerry

From mark KI0I, SKCC #6585T

Ran out into the garage Sat. morning and threw together a cootie in about 30m mins..took longer to decide what pieces to use than the build .Randy KX1NH and I must think alike because I see he used a stainless ruler also so sick minds think alike I guess(or is it brilliant minds?) hihi. I hope my key measured up to the task! Had fun and still can`t believe so many of u cud understand my "cootie fist". In my earfones it souded all slurred and once in a while I got a twang like an old door spring! Maybe the next swiper will have a stiffer beam. The bonus for building and operating a cootie should be 500pts ,maybe more ops would try it!!!

All in all a lot of fun and thanks to everyone for the qso`s,special thanks W0DR Dave a new outlaw and a rare catch. 73 cu in the SKS Mark KI0I

From Jim N5JPX, SKCC #8672T

A toothache, thunderstorms, terrible band conditions and a KX3 at 5 watts; I could have tried a "cootie" to add some challenge! I really look forward to these weekend get-togethers and I'm always curious to see how propagation will treat those of us who choose to operate QRP. A tip of my SKCC hat to Rob, G4LMW, for hanging in there and getting my number. The QSB was bad and I'm sure my KX3 and 5 watts wasn't doing him any favors. Great job Rob! As always, thanks to the folks who work so hard to organize these events and provide the interesting twists that make them so much fun. The cooties sounded good! I guess I'll look into getting one or building one and start procticing ... just fair warning. Station here was the KX3 to an 80 meter loop with a J-38 for the key. 73, Jim

Some great sounding CW from the cootie ops-I tried it with a rewired Kent single level....didn't dare let that loose on the air! Thanks for all the fun and see you next time!

From Hal K5HEM, SKCC #8421

Great time - was a little crowded on 20m with the WAE contest but it was easy to pick out the WES folks by the quality and pace of the code!

From Jim ND9M, SKCC #8233T

My Vizkey cootie bailed me out a year ago when I developed a pretty bad case of glass arm from operating with my J-38 that's been my mainstay since I was first licensed in 1971. Last summer, I'd picked up the cootie simply out of curiosity because there had been a lot of chatter about cooties at that time on the SKCC reflector. It never dawned on me that my hand key would cause my arm to go south on me. Now the J-38 keeps a place of honor next to the rig, and the cootie is now the star of the on-air show in my shack. That said, it was a bit of a special bonus for me just to be able to give out the cootie points this weekend.

From Doug SK0SKC, SKCC #10739T

This ol' outlaw ended up being a little more slippery than I intended. Operated the club call from my hideout on the KS/MO border.

I didn't get to work very long, and band conditions were very poor when I started on Saturday.

Still enjoyed the challenge of picking out the 5X3-4 signals. I'ts nice that my Drake 2NT can still get a good signal out to the east coast. These sprints are making me a better operator. See you next time, Gary.

Best contact was VK7CW

From Eliot KE0N, SKCC #256T

Conditions were challenging on Saturday. F6HKA and W9DLN, as always, great signals (are they immune to band conditions ;)? Congrats to Mark KO1U on the Senator.

Used the KX3 serial 3216 but bumped to 10 watts because of conditions - still quite fun.

Looking forward to the next. Great group!

My old key was falling apart - was a terrible effort on my part - (( ashamed )) - Dave

From CHARLIE N0CVW, SKCC #9074C

Great weekend, even with the competition from the WAE DX Contest in Europe! Can't complain about the band conditions!

Had a blast! Just wish I had more time to play radio!

From Greg KG5RJ, SKCC #6412T

Didn't operate much most contacts casual

From Randy KB4QQJ, SKCC #3508T

Well that was fun! Bands were very noisy but I seemed to have pretty good propagation to the NW and Europe. Got to work some old friends, N2JNZ, K0LUW and especially Jim, KK7YJ. I thought the Bison had trampled his antenna it's been so long. Another great surprise was Rob, G4LMW. Really been a while since I've worked him and we made our first SKCC sideswiper to sideswiper contact. Great sideswiper fist Rob!

I think Dan, W9DLN found his sideswiper fist when he stuck two J-38's together! Well done Dan.

Strongest signal was AI0F at almost 50 over! Booming into NC.

Speaking of "NC", maybe next time we can use /SS and /NS. I had to explain to one person I was not portable in Colorado... heh heh. I did explain the event and SKCC so maybe see him in the New Members before long.

The fact I sent "NC" for my state seemed to confuse several folks. I worked 100% Sideswiper so if you worked me it was on a cootie. Take the points.

Weapons of choice were my KX3 #085

Antennas were PAR EndFedz and 5 band doublet at 33 feet

Sideswipers were an original Kungsimport and a custom NT9K sideswiper #8.

The NT9K top slips off the base so I can use it on a leg brace for mobile operations.

Thanks For all the fun and see you next time.

BCNU,

From Jim N3ADF, SKCC #6459T

Had a real nice long chat with KF4GUI-Woody # 7570. Neither one of us was really working the WES.

Family always gets in the way of contesting.. :)

From Noel K8NB, SKCC #3112T

Not much time again this month. I did get a few minutes free and made a few contacts with the current rig on the workbench, a Ten Tec Scout and a Signal Electric straight key.

From Drew AF2Z, SKCC #2082T

Almost forgot to submit my WES entry! Don't remember much of it but my log says I operated almost entirely on 20 and 40. Was messing around with indoor antennas also. Guess that's about it... Oh, yeah: rig is K3 running 10 watts; Junker straight key; outdoor endfed wire plus attic 10-20 Cobweb antenna and 40m contraption.

From JEFF KE9V, SKCC #3383C

Great time as usual. Very casual S&P for a couple of hours. See you next month! 73 de Jeff
