A super sprintathon-- the last 3 hrs on 20 was really active and the bonus for non-lettered members was a great idea-- This was my highest score even//73-ED/W7GVE

This key is nothing new and is the one I use for club contacts. Had fun working 10 meters.

From Merlin KD0V, SKCC #1243T

Even though I have worked a number of the WES, this was my first attempt to work the full 24 hours. I didn't get 24 hours in, but had a great time. The weather here in Minnesota was a big encouragement.

From Ken VE7KBN, SKCC #5533T

Used my HB1B as usual and only on 20m. My WAS project with the HB1B continues--- thanks to Tom/K7ROH FOR ID, DAVE/W3NP

FOR WV and Jim/KC7QY for NM!. And thanks to those who make

the sprint possible.See you next time!!


From Dennis W5WIL, SKCC #9429

Fixed my TS-520s ('jumpy' VFO) and used it QRP at 5W with my Czech key. The key is very quiet and enjoyable to use. Was snowed in this weekend, resulting in my best personal score. All bands seemed in good shape, but didn't find many contacts on 10m. Always a pleasure to work fellow SKCC hams. Merry Christmas to all . . Dennis

From Jason KD0EKT, SKCC #9435T

My homebrew key did far better than I expected! I actually like the thing! Also thanks to Steve VK7CW for working so hard to make a contact! Australia is now DXCC entity #82 QSL'd in my log!

From Garry VE5SG, SKCC #6154T

Usual KX3 at 5w, Vibroplex straight key and triband yagi and inverted Vee.

Went out on The evening of December 7 to take a photo of my Christmas display. It was quick. Temperature minus 27C, windchill minus 42C. Ran back indoors quick. eh?

From Mike AC0PR, SKCC #7033T

I only got to play a little, but after a couple of qso's I decided I had better check to see what the theme was. "Homebrew keys!" I love homebrew keys, and had a few, but then I saw you were supposed to make one specifically for the WES. Dang! I only had another half an hour, but wanted to participate. I went upstairs to the kitchen and looked around. Saw a broken plastic spoon. Decided to make a "garbage" key. Ripped some silvery foil out of an envelope to be thrown away that we received a Christmas card in, grabbed some tape and a scrap board and screwed in an extra screw lying around the shack. It worked MUCH better than expected. Nice and springy. Way fun as always.

From JOHN K8BAT, SKCC #10395T

I was disappointed because 10m was still poor in Ohio during this WES. I did hear a couple people, but they were too weak to copy. Most of my contacts were on 20m and 15m with a few on 40m.

Other family matters limited my time for this WES, but I had a great time when I was on the radio. I had 51 contacts to a respectable 23 states including both North and South Dakota; which are rarely heard in Ohio. I also heard Bert in France; but my treat for this WES had to be my contact with Jay-VY1JA in Whitehorse, Yukon Territories, Canada! He is located in the SW part of the territory, not too far from the Alaska border. QRZ tells me it was a distance of 2,614 miles from Columbus, Ohio. Not bad for 40 meters. Again great WES. See you next month. - John


From Jim K5BZH, SKCC #447T

Finding myself lacking 3 states (MI, ND, OK) confirmed for a 10 Meter CW WAS and 4 states (DE, KS, MI, OK) confirmed for a 15 Meter CW WAS, I decided to spend the DEC WES working 15 meters only, the upcoming ARRL Ten Meter Contest is just around the corner.

I only managed to work Michigan out of the 3 stated which I needed confirmed on 15 CW, if I worked you and you are in Michigan, you are going to find a QSL with a SASE from me shortly. I would surely love a QSL from you. It doesn't need to be fancy, a homemade one on an index card works fine, it does need to be free of errors though.

Hope to run across some of you folks in the Ten Meter Contest, especially if you happen to be operating from MI, ND, or OK.


From Frank W4HAY, SKCC #678T

Finally got to spend some appreciable operating this WES. Started off working VY1JA up in the Yukon on 40 Meters, so knew it was going to be a fun run.

Everybody have a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and safe New Year. We'll see you for SKN.


From Lee K1LEE, SKCC #7246T

Condx pretty good both days. Fun working ops with hmbrw keys, including mine! Took some getting used to, but it did fb for whole WES. Photo attached. The C-clamp was for weight, also as a heat sink when I got up to 30-35 wpm (hi hi). As always, looking forward to the next WES. Happy Holidays to all! 73, Lee 7246T

had fun even may get new member

From Bob K5ZOL, SKCC #3945T

Thought I was going to get a lot of air time this weekend. Just barely go on at all.....Looking fwd to K3y.

From Dave W3NP, SKCC #3182S

Very enjoyable winterish weekend for the WES. Had 7" of snow as well as sleet and ice. There was a lot of SKCC activity on all bands and the majority of stations heard were all participating in the WES - non SKCC members must certainly be taking note of the "cq wes" calls, the amount of participation and the laid back fun atmosphere where signal reports are actually meaningful. When I deducted the # of non-member QSO's (5), I came up with 85 no letter members - a lot higher percentage (45%) than usual.

Condx were fairly good with except for 40 going long and watery early. 10 didn't produce much but had a few there. Sorry for the few that I just couldn't pull out - even with a Ten Tec!

Rig: Ten Tec Omni 7. Keys for this one: Vibroplex J36 bug from 1941 and WW2 German straight key. The antennas used are shown with the KLM KT-34A pointing west towards W7GVE's station (hi Ed).

Looking forward to the next one as well as the K3Y event. 73 de West Virginia

Didn't have much time this sprint but made a couple contacts and got a chance to try out Ron Bower (AC2C)'s SKCC Sprint Logger, a very nice program and so easy to use. Thanks, Ron! Hope to spend more time on the next WES. Pictured is me with my new DXCC Award (all CW), just received last month. 72, Rick

From Dave NE5DL, SKCC #5081T

Another fun WES, worked 40-10M and didn't see much on 80M. The high light of the weekend was working Andy E51AND, but at the other end of the WX extreme took a couple of hours off to shovel ice from my driveway here in TX.

From Gerald WA5AFD, SKCC #8150T

Had a great time in the sprint and more time to spend since the weather forced us inside. Good band conditions here in Oklahoma. Thanks for all the QSO's and for those responsible for allowing this to happen. Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas to all.

From Bob W0CC, SKCC #7655

This was my FIRST SKCC WES! Although I had a very limited amount of time in which to participate, it was GREAT and I plan to take part in future events. Thanks for all of the the "behind the scenes work"!

From Jim AF3Z, SKCC #3034T

I made in for the last 30 minutes... pulled out my mini-hacksaw-blade-duct-tape straight key I had made back in September... and enjoyed a mini-sprint-a-thon. Thanks.... See y'all in K3Y!

From Joe KD2JC, SKCC #710T

A good sprint. Nice to see a lot of members on. Didn't have time to homebrew a key but that's OK. I still have trouble taming my Vibroplex bug. Thanks to all and everyone have a very "Merry Christmas" and a "Happy and Healthy New Year."

A bit busy this weekend, but enjoyed the Sprint using my hombebrew Wooden Nickel Sideswiper. Built it in about 2 hrs on Friday night. First time I've tried using a sideswiper, really had fun with it. Need more practice, but most everyone seemed to copy me AOK. Had fun, thanks to all for the contacts. 73

Disappointed to see the Senator award values still not provided on scoring sheet. Added numbers to T and C to compensate. Lots of fun but had to share to time with some great football games. Thanks to all and Merry Christmas and all the best in 2014! 73 de AR

From Ken WA2FBN, SKCC #8884

Like my j38 key much better than my crude homemade key :-)

From Paul VE1PVH, SKCC #7728T

Great WES although conditions were mixed. Got to spend a little more time at the key as the Honey-Do list was short for once.

Cheers all and thx for the fun

thanks for the QSOs.

From Bill W0EJ, SKCC #10440T

Tnx for another WES and to all that could pick out my 5 watts. I don't think I like using my adhoc key, those parts can go back into the junk box..... 72 es Happy Holidays, Bill

From Jose VE3DTI, SKCC #7020

No homebrew SK here, but looking forward to see the pics of those put together for this WES. Nice also to be able to give others extra points as initial-less SKCC member, maybe for the last time. 73 to all Jose VE3DTI.

From JIM WA5KMA, SKCC #5057S

Fun WES bands good and lots of participants,This time I ran 800 watts using IC 7600 and AL 82. I managed to log 254, with my home brew key, and there must have been 50 or so that called me and I was unable to dig out, I did try hard and for those I did not answer I am sorry and I hope next time the band will be better. And for those I did contact thank you for making it a fun WES. And I was able to get my "S" 73 JIM

Another fun WES, good condx this time around. The homebrew SK worked well, not as good as my Vibroplex SK thou...hi hi.

Put the K2 to work this WES in qrp mode. Was able to work 40/20 and 15 meters, no 80 m this time. 40 m was busy Sat night, enjoyed that.

Even managed to get France and Japan this time around, thanks Bert and Kan ! And thanks to all the ops out there, lots of new numbers also !

From Phil KB0ETU, SKCC #4542T

Bands weren't great, but at least the QRM/QRN was fairly quiet. Not much time again this month to play radio. Too many activities (parties)happening. Anyway, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all. See you all next year if not the SKS later this month. 72/73, Phil

From Alan KI6FCT, SKCC #9947T

Made a quick sideswiper with #12 solid copper wire. Loop is tapped 1/2" into 5/64" holes about 1/8" apart, and lead is soldered to the side, which makes it very stable. I pinched the loop in to set the gaps, and it worked well all weekend; the paddle stayed in the middle, and the gaps didn't widen. I used a 12" x 12" piece of MDF I found in the garage. By being large enough to rest my hand on it, it kept the lightweight sideswiper from moving.

From STEVE K2DEP, SKCC #9273T

Gee Wiz. After all that work with my homemade key from last year, KE3O burst my bubble and told me it had to be a newly made key just for this event. I need to READ the rules. I had fun regardless. Condx were not the greatest with all the storms around with lots of QRN on Sat. Worked QRP for the second time with my KX3. Nice radio. 73s to all.

From JOHN ZS6JBJ, SKCC #3808T

A big thank you to organizers and participants for making this the success it was.

From Don KF7DS, SKCC #8281T

That was a really fun WES. Band conditions on 20m and 15m held well throughout the weekend, and worked many members several times, as well as several non-members that wanted to get in on the fun. Thanks to Kan/JI3CJP, Steve/VK7CW and Julio/NP3CW for the DX fix. Good warmup for K3Y. Don KF7DS

From Bill KE3O, SKCC #9282T

December WES competes with many holiday activities, weekend work, honey-dos, weather, etc ... phew ! Didn't have time to build a new key "from scratch" so I had to break out last years (BTW .. I didn't take the bonus). Fun WES just the same ... tnx fer the contacts and all have a happy and healthy holiday season. 73

From Joe W1HFF, SKCC #6309T

Nice theme. Thanks everyone.

From Ken W9KMP, SKCC #549

unable to correctly account for the 4 "S" stations I workrd. I must have misread the rules. Perhaps next time I will get it right.

From Art KA5DWI, SKCC #6907

This will be my last WES for a long time. The station is being shutdown in preparation for retirement and relocation sometimes next year. Thank you for the few hours of enjoyment the past couple of years. Hopefully I got enough new numbers to put a letter after my number. If not, I look forward to the return. 73s Art

From Wes W1LIC, SKCC #1142T

I truly enjoyed this WES after being off the air for several months. Conditions were pretty good. My home brew sideswiper was just good for one contact; not very sturdy. Using a brand new TS-480SAT. Love this rig! Also used my Vibroplex straight key I recently bought used. It is an excellent key but my favorite remains my old J-37. Made it to Tx7 with this WES. Lots of first contacts and many regulars.

From Rick N5RB, SKCC #8994C

Although I don't have the time to go after this full tilt, I think this needs to be one of the permanent themes. I like that the "newcomers" or initial-less were in the hunt for bonus points as well as the initialed. I would have had a homebrew key but didn't have enough time to pull it off. I'll keep the idea for next year <grin>. The plus side is I've now have enough contact to apply for my "T." Enjoyed the contacts, see you next year. 73, Rick

From GARY K9ZMD, SKCC #891T

Because of family plans, I expected to play only the first day, and just an hour or so. The plans changed, letting me put in several hours each day . . . making me probably the only adult in the nation grateful for our frigid temperatures.

Band conditions seemed excellent, and I logged contacts on five bands, a WES first for me. Some were old friends, but it was good to see so many first-time entries in my log - seven of them with 5 digit SKCC numbers. Notably, a powerful signal from Kan, JI3CJP, let me log my first-ever Asian WES contact.

Looking forward to even more fun next time. 73

The pix is the station at NWS SKYWARN with the SpeedX & Navy FP..our 40M Extended ZEPP at 60ft w/tuner worked well on all bands. One highlight, ZS6JBJ on 10M plus many others. Thanks to everyone for a great WES...73 Rick

Ice storms all weekend. Fingers crossed that antennas and power would stay up. Windom covered with ice and in the trees, but it worked. The beam was frozen at 45 ° and never had a chance to thaw. Good excuse to stay inside. Nice to see so many members with "no initials" on the air. Casually working on the "S", and looking forward to K3Y.

What a busy weekend. WES skcc, 160m contest, Hamfest on Saturday, smoked the tuner inductance switch and had to repair(don,t sw inductance under full power for rapid band changing HI) and still a couple hrs of sleep and a few 807''s to boot. Condx good for both WES and the 160m contest. Used HB straight key made from sheet metal strip and radio knob (aka Tinker toy key) Used a spring from a battery holder to help control. Worked great. Operated skcc qsos all bands 10 thru 160m. Neatest qso was F5DE on 40m in the middle of the afternoon hr. Also VK7CW Steves new left handed bug sounded great on 3 bands. He is RIGHT handed. 73 es tnx qso es Merry Xmas to all.

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

Busy tiring weekend. Woked the 160 meter contest QRP and then into the WES! Long weekend of CW but had a blast in both events...Used my homebrew "Clothespin Key" for the entire sprint and believe it or not made the last 32 contacts in the 160 contest with it too! It works...and is certainly a keeper. It has earned a spot in the K2MIJ key rotation! Thanks to all 16 of my contacts and special thanks to Peter AK3X for the 2 way QRP QSO and to Bert F6HKA who always hears my 1 Watt signal! Lots of fun as usual and even though tired from the 160 contest I found more time to operate in the WES...See you next month! 73/72 de K2MIJ

Rig problems kept me off 40 and 80 meters this time. So I didn't work most of the nearby states, and yes, I didn't work MI either.

Started out with my junk box key set up as a cootie key and had to modify it to a straight key because I was QLF with the cootie key. Had a great time. 73 and cul....Bill

From Jerry K9PMV, SKCC #1438T

Tried to keep ten meters going as much as possible. Fifteen and Twenty were good as usual. Never made it to fourty or eighty.

From Bernard F5DE, SKCC #6247T

Maybe the worst WES for me this month !

A very bad noise and poor openings when behind the transceiver.

I stayed calling W9DLN for almost one hour, then I did it !

Thanks Dan and thanks to the 20 stations who heard my little signal.

See you with better conditions next month.

Merry Xmas everybody !


From Ken/V3 K7IFG, SKCC #4694T

That was a fun weekend. Had bought a CAT cable so change freqs

with the logging software was a blast. Merry Xmas de Ken


From Don KA1KU, SKCC #9399C

Fun time making the Trench Art Key. Got the idea in the morning and spent maybe 3 hours doing the construction. All of the cartridges (44 Magnum, 243 Winchester and 375 H&H) are reloaded without any powder and not live primers.

I reload and shoot all of these as well as many others. Reloading was my first hobby. I started in 1959, almost the same time I became interested in HAM radio.

Almost made my 'T' this WES. Due to dupes I am now at 48.

From RON VE3FMW, SKCC #10702C

An abbreviated sprint, with only a few hours on Saturday available to play. But spent most of the time on 20, the only band with much activity at this QTH, and logged a bunch of SK's that I haven't met before. Happy Hols to all and hope to cu in the January sprints. Special thanks to all the members who work so hard to enable our fun. I vote we double their salaries! 73 Ron

From Dave KI8JY, SKCC #10751

My first WES and second contest ever. Thanks to all the courteous/kind/proficient SKCC & other hams who worked me. 20m was great here in my part of OH; contact with Romain, F4FGB was a very nice surprise. The homebrew key theme was an excellent idea & the member photos of their creations are great - 73, Dave

From Eldon W0SZV, SKCC #4999T

In a motel room in Troy, Mo. Used a HB1A 3 bander @ 4 watts int a lousy working home built mag loop. Took 2 hours to finally get someone to hear me. At least I kept up my 100% participation.

From Bill WV1N, SKCC #6622C

Download photo.JPG (500.7 KB)Made my key from a wooden clothespin and knob. After adding lateral braces it worked fine. Split my time between the WES and 160 meter contest so it was a busy weekend. Building the key was half the fun.

From Jim W1WIU, SKCC #486T

Worked on and off. (mostly off Hi Hi). IC 756 Pro3,100wts. ZS6BKW ant. up 50', Bencher RJ-1 key. Mostly 15,20,& 40 meters. Meet some old friends and made some new ones.

From Steve VK7CW, SKCC #10820T

Another great WES and I always have fun, which is the name of the game. Was using my old Yaesu FT-1000 with about 150 watts. I didn't build a fresh homebrew key for this event as I wanted to try out my new Vizkey 90 degree bug (left handed) which I received in the mail a couple of days before the WES. I had never used a bug before so I had great fun learning the art of bug sending. I have been chasing Jason, KD0EKT, in AR for quite some time now and we could just never get the condx right for a QSO. However during the WES we finally managed a QSO on 12m. It didn't count for the WES but sure was great to get him in the log finally, thanks Jason. Leaves me chasing 3 more states for SKCC WAS. I managed to work K8NS Mike on 3 bands and a few others on 2 bands. It was great fun to work the QRP stations and many thanks to all who worked me.

From Steve AI9IN, SKCC #8759C

Worked the WES with my handmade AI9IN special, crafted from a block of 1x4, some strap hanger, and two wood screws. Had a very light touch.

Ironically, I just got my C on December 3. If I'd have waited I would have been worth more points without it!

From Kurt KJ5WU, SKCC #9037T

Another great WES. Thanks for the contacts.

From Tony W4FOA, SKCC #641T

Fun, as always. I also worked 6 Senators but don't see any place to claim them in the scoring profile.

From Darrell AF5FX, SKCC #10679

WES continues to be a fun event. But now I'm getting to see the strategy ... rack up the QSO count and especially multipliers. Next time ... :-) Happy Holidays to all!

From TOM KE7YTE, SKCC #6447T

WES is alway fun. I just happened to switch over to 15 Meters and found JI3CJP who is a SKCC member so with 5 Watts I made a nice 559 Q with Kan. That made my day.

From Dick K2HT, SKCC #5087T

Only had couple of hours to operate hope to have more time next month. Thanks for the QSO's and Blessing of Christmas to all.

From Eliot KE0N, SKCC #256T

Was great fun again. I did casual operating throughout the weekend with the trusty J38 and the Kenwood TS590 @ 25W. Next year I plan on actually making a homebrew key. The pics here (keys) are quite novel.

Looking forward to SKN.

From Curt KC9UNL, SKCC #8667C

Sorry couldn't spend more time on the WES. Looking forward to K3Y in January.

From BRION VE3FUJ, SKCC #4936T

I was also disappointed in not being able to score Senators so I added it to Tribunes and Centurions. I did however enjoy the sprint. Brion

From George N2JNZ, SKCC #2836T

Was just too busy this weekend and only made 9 contacts in the WES. 15 meters was great on Saturday morning !!! Got good reports from CA and FL. I used the Llaves straight key modified with a piece of plastic jewelry from JoAnn Fabrics. I still cant send on a SK long due to 30 yrs as a cleaner in a school system and after having my shoulder replaced 3 yrs ago it doesn't like a SK either. Bug is the only way to go for me Thanks to my buddy Wes , W1LIC for the QSO !! haven't worked in ages !!! Nice signal to NNY Wes !!!!!

From Yes K4UFT, SKCC #4289T

Vigilante action is needed to deal with the Missouri Outlaws!!! There are so many of them riding rampant over the bands they bring down everyone's SPC multipliers every month!!! More gangs in other states are needed to cope with this crisis!!!

Would like to see different point credit given for "S" rather than just counting them as "T".

Okay ... off my soapbox now ... great time as always ... stayed on 40 Meters.

FT-950 @ 50 Watts to home-brew vertical. Czech Army key.

Great time - had fun building my hacksaw key - not sure if it was me or if it was wearing out but the last hour was a bit sloppy - glad to get back to my NFP now.

From Charlie KB1UOH, SKCC #7560T

15M with 3W was challenging but fun. The ant is an indoor dipole.

From Scott N3JJT, SKCC #255T

Not much time here. Christmas coming up, plus other commitments for the weekend! Ten Tec Eagle at 100 watts, Viz Key 90 degree Bug, and Czech hand key. 40 was not in very good shape Saturday evening. All in all another good sprint.

73 de Scott


From Phil AK2MA, SKCC #3800T

Station set-up consisted of a Buddipole antenna set up indoors hooked to my Yaesu FT-857D running 20-100 watts being keyed with my J-37 given to me by my friend and contesting mentor, Larry, N1TX (KL2R).

Bands were rough for my caged station on Saturday but Sunday yielded more QSO's. Very minimal effort but fun regardless. Highlight of the weekend was an SKCC QSO worth zero points. I met Barry, NF1O at the Yankee Clipper Contest Club meeting on Sunday. I was sporting my SKCC ballcap I acquired from Astrid's Embroidery and NF1O introduced himself. On the air, it was great working many familiar callsigns. My call may have raised an eyebrow or two. Same ham, different call.

Thanks for the QSO's and looking forward to many more WES contact. Wishing everyone a safe and happy holiday season. 73, Phil AK2MA (EX: KL8DX)


From John K4BAI, SKCC #3280

100 watts into a 20 foot high dipole . . . a sacrifice from the home QTH to operate in shorts, t-shirt and a big fan to keep me cool! Good to work many newer SKCC members!

From Mark KI0I, SKCC #6585T

The 160m contest drew almost all the cw out of me but I had to get some points for the team.Worked some 10 and 15 meters and was pleased to make a QSO to JA with JI3CJP and NP3CW in PR. Some very loud western signals too.

73 c u in SKS, Mark

From Andy WA5RML, SKCC #3169

Ten Tec Jupiter @100 wts; G5RV (80M/40M)and Cushcraft MA5V vertical (20M-10M); Vibroplex Straight Key;

Another one in the books! Fell short of my goal of 100 QSOs due to laziness and trying to remove ice from the sidewalk and driveway.

Nice to work "neighbors" Joe, KK5NA (just down the street!) and Dave, NE5DL, who is about 5-10 miles away and was doing a fantastic job with his homebrew "cootie" key!

Thanks to everyone for the QSOs! See you next time!

From Drew AF2Z, SKCC #2082T

It was great fun working the WES while watching the snow fall. The bands sounded good and quite a lot of WES activity to be heard at times... Not much DX, but it was good DX: a surprise call from John VK4WID on 10m; also Jay VY1JA in Yukon on 12m (not for WES score, I happened to note the freq on spotter page and was listening when he returned there later). Good signals north and west this snowy day: Paul VE1PVH, Kevin VE4MR, Garry VE5SG, Gerry VE7BGP, and more... My rig: Elecraft K3 at 100 watts; attic 'cobweb' antennas; Junker straight key. Thanks to all!

From Peter AK3X, SKCC #7217T

Good condx on 20 and 40 when I was able to operate. Had lots of

My first SKCC experience. Just got my SKCC number a few days before the Sprintathon.Used my old HT-30 TX with my SX-100 RX and a 1922 Vibroplex Junior bug. Only made a handfull of qso's but had a great time and look forward to doing it again. See you in the next one. 73-Bob-W0YBS

From RICH W4RQ, SKCC #8699T

Only got 3 1/2 Hours operating this time (Tis the Holliday Season!) but there was good activity on 20 meters Sunday afternoon. As always, I had a blast QRP with my KX-3 during WES.

From Charles AI4UN, SKCC #4715T

This is the third homebrew key I’ve made for the Homebrew Key sprints. This year’s key was made of two table knives, seven rubber bands, one Popsicle stick, a piece of old speaker wire and a mouse pad. The wires were attached to the end of each knife with rubber bands which also acted as insulation between the knives. Another rubber band was used on the lower knife as a pivot and insulator with another band around both knives to hold them together and act as a return spring. The Popsicle stick was used for rotational stability and used 3 bands. I used this key for 20 QSO’s over 3 hours. It worked well most of the time and had a good feel to me. It took about 15 minutes to build, and it has since been taken apart, and the knives are in the dishwasher. This was a fun sprint.

My first WES in a while and I had a really good time. In between Christmas parties and other obligations, I am glad I got what little time I had.

From Art WB8ENE, SKCC #3773T

I started off as QRPp (one contact), but switched to the full gallon QRP when John N0TA couldn't quite hear my signal on 40 meters. Only operated for a little under two hours on Sunday morning. Had to suffer through another Cleveland Browns loss later in the day, but it was a good game, and they played well. By the way, where am I supposed to list the senators I worked? Since there is no separate category, I considered them as tribunes. See you in the next sprint. 73, Art

From Joe WS9E, SKCC #3859T

Band conditions seemed fairly good but I was troubled by strong, local QRN which suddenly stopped, just before the televised Green Bay Packer game, on Sunday, and never returned. Thankfully, someone unplugged whatever it was...

I used the Orion, stealth dipole and Speed-X key. Thanks for the contacts! Happy Holidays to all.


From CECIL K5YQF, SKCC #1820T

Cold and rotten wx in central Texas, but a good weekend for getting on the air. Lot's of fun with contacts on all bands. Thanks to everyone.

From Curt WA2JSG, SKCC #3018T

No homebrew key for me on this one, just a big ole Kent Straight Key. Switched between my IC-7000 and my IC-7200 running 50 watts to a Butternut HF9V vertical (elevated).

Many thanks to those that put these events on... well done!


From TOM WY3H, SKCC #629

First time entrant

From Dan W9DLN, SKCC #3635S

Thanks for all the contacts everyone. Conditions were pretty good. Got lots of VE provinces and also VY1! Also got John in RSA and three EU countries. Missed IA otherwise would have had all of the lower 48 states. The non-C/T bonus was fun. The wooden key I whipped up 10 minutes before WES lasted the whole event. I sure like the way it sounds on air and how it doesn't sound. It is silent compared to my R-48.

Looking forward to the next WES and seeing you all in K3Y. Special thanks to K2RFP and K3UK. Couldn't get this score without you guys. 73, GL...

I think my best QRP WES so far. Saturday I worked 20/15/10 and the bands were very good. Sunday morning I got 1 on 80 and 40 was booming. Short skip was great and worked a few TX stations which I usually can't do. Thanks to all for the fun. It was mixed with the Icom 746Pro at 4 watts and the FT-817 at 5 watts. All on the 80 meter dipole at 30 feet.

Another fun WES! Thanks to everyone I worked. Not much time to play radio this weekend but did manage to squeeze in some fun. I worked VY1JA up in the Yukon right before I went out to shovel off the driveway Saturday morning. Then I had some fun Saturday evening with some long propagation on 40, working France, Nova Scotia and Maine along with others on both east and west coasts.

Happy Holidays and Happy New Year to all the fine SKCC folks.

Split time with the ARRL 160 test-by Sunday afternoon I was "keyed out" so not as many WES contacts as I would have liked. Glad to make some contacts Saturday and Sunday with the homemade key but as time wore on I had to go back to the flameproof. My apologies to those who suffered through a contact with the "hard drive mounting clip" based mechanical Morse generating device (I can't really call it a key). 73 and Happy Holidays to all!
