Soapbox


From John G0RDO, SKCC #2133T

Weird conditions on this WES. In the first 8 hours (Saturday 1200z - 2000z) I had zero QSO's ! I did hear a few stations but they were mainly in the Japan Int. and other contests. The postman delivered a parcel at 1700z - it was a CW Filter and an internal Auto ATU for my TS-440S, so had a break from WES and fitted both and pleased that all working great. Between 2000z

and 2300z on Saturday I worked F6HKA/Bert, NG5NG/Neil, W4FOA/Tony, W9DLN/Dan, KC9W/Randy and K9DAC, all on 20m. Between 2000z and 2300z on Sunday I managed to work S57WJ/Gabor, SP6JOE/Joe, K8QI/Barry, AF2Z/Drew, N9OL/John, WA5KMA/Jim, AH6AX/Larry and VE1PVH/Paul, again all on 20m. All other bands = no SKCC WES'ers heard.

Rig Kenwood TS-440SAT, 100 watts to a sloper dipole for 20m, key a marble based big 1930's Marconi Straight key. Hope conditions improve soon - that was hard going.

73. John / GØRDO / SKCC 2133T

From Art W2NRA, SKCC #11634T

Thank you to all who persevered the noise and worked me. What a tough WES this was. SKCC participation seemed down and who could blame them. The bands were terrible here on the East coast. 10m never opened. 15m opened infrequently. 20m was always noisy and at times the QRN was at S7 to S9. I lost several QSOs to QRN spikes. 40m was best. I spent twice the time as last month with 40 less QSOs.  Of course I did have 10 electric fans and 2 dehumidifiers running in my house because of the flood (NO not that flood, I’m not that old  ;^)  I had a fence installed and one to the workers brook my outside faucet.  It blew out inside the wall and flooded have my first floor. What a mess!  Of course I still had a great time. THANK YOU EVERYONE! I want to give a SPECIAL thanks to Pascal, F5BSX, as my last QSO in the WES, he gave me the 400th unique CTS QSO for my Tx8.

From Julio NP3CW, SKCC #2632T

Nice to work few new SKCC numbers. Not able to work more time on this WES due to family activities and I was working also as a volunteer operator of W1AW/KP4 on the 6 mtrs band.

I was able to work LW3EX Walter as W1AW/KP4 in 50.090.

Bands were noisy this time with QRN es QSB.

Good luck to all. I recommend the A1 operator list should be also by SKCC numbers. 73


From AL N4OW, SKCC #11375T

Poor Conditions + Poor Antenna = My Score <8^)

From GARY KF7WNS, SKCC #9895

The bands were in poor shape this time. Was trying to find other QRP stations, but the noise level was S-5 to 7. See everyone next month. 72, Gary

From Jerry/A1 K6III, SKCC #6830S

unusual propagation conditions observed.

From Rodney N4RAY, SKCC #285T

Bands were really noisy, not much time this month, but had fun while i could operate, thanks for pulling out my 5 Watts

From Scott KD4EE, SKCC #11016T

Thanks to everyone who worked through the propagation challenges during this WES. SRI to those who called me but I couldn't pull out of the noise. 73 and CU next WES.

From Werner N8BB, SKCC #5433S

Good thing there was some good TV this week end because it sure was better than band conditions. Not one of my better turn outs with 1 watt but guess we will just have to do it better next time. KX3 1 watt

From Ed K1EDG, SKCC #9625S

Thank you to all that do the work to make the sprints happen! Another fun time working QRP 5w on the Flex 1500 into a Windom OCFD up 75'

From Bill W0EJ, SKCC #10440T

What the heck happened to the bands? Was windy as all heck here and the dipole was dancing but only to the wind. I still had a good time and thanks to all for the Qs, thanks to the A1 Ops for being on the bands.... 73 Bill

From mike K8NS, SKCC #10580T

Band condx on the 1st and 2nd mornings were supurb. Saturday morning, Steve VK7CW was 599+10db on 20m. Operated all bands 6m thru 160m, S&P only. Could not put in a lot of hrs due to Spring Break hr in Florida. Had 11 house quests, mostly teenagers. Next year I am going on Spring Break. 73 es tnx qso to all.

Yes, very poor band condx from here as well. 10 was dead but did work LW3EX on that band. 15 very bad on Sat and not much better on Sunday. 20 was noisy and busy but not that many different ops on. 40 meters here Sat eve was as noisy as the middle of August. Since it was so warm out, the xyl and I took the little Miata out for a few country road spins and I didn't feel at all guilty about missing out on some WES ops.

Rig was the K3 @ 100 watts to the tri-bander and cf zepp. Keys: Vibroplex bug and Junker straight key.

73 de West Virginia.


From Brad N5LUL, SKCC #3779C

Ready to give things a shot again in May.

From Jim K5BZH, SKCC #447T

Apparently the Ether Gods were napping this weekend. Could be interesting to see how the propagation effects the score averages.

I did work KF7WNS, he was running 5 watts QRP, apparently running one of the classic ARRL homebrew designs with a 6C4 oscillator driving a 5763. Sort of made my day. His signal was about 349 into Texas Panhandle from Oregon on twenty, a little weak, but able to copy 100 percent.


From Steve N1FPG, SKCC #9934T

Way too many honey-doos

From ED KG4W, SKCC #2416S

Did not put much effort into this one, too much other stuff going on. Had fun though, operated 2 hours.

From Eldon W0SZV, SKCC #4999S

conditions not the best, thunderstorms in area. Ten Tec Jupiter at 100 watts, 60ft long wire up 10 ft. and a 5 band hustler vertical. Key was an old set of SNYDER KP2 paddles wired as a Cootie. Had a good time. Hoping to get a loop back up soon

From Andy KB1OIQ, SKCC #6265T

This was my first WES in a couple of months, and I was glad to be able to participate. Most QSOs were on 20m with lots of QSB on Sunday afternoon. Working Conditions: IC-746Pro with the G5RV at 100 Watts. 73 de Andy

From Lee K1LEE, SKCC #7246T

Beautiful spring day + yard work + Masters tournament = not much air time. The number of A1 ops is impressive - another ingenious bonus plan for WES. Keep dreaming them up! 73 til next time, Lee K1LEE

From ROB XE1GXG, SKCC #689

I hope to be more active more often. 73 desde Guadalajara...

From Art WK2S, SKCC #9434S

Well, at least the weather was good. Very sporadic conditions so if I was more diligent I would have done better...

Good time and thanks to all. 73, Art


From Harold VE5BCS, SKCC #3946T

Band was very noisy but we enloyed

From George K2HRS, SKCC #5419

Well, I did better than last time. Paper logging slows me down too much. Lots of noise on 40 m toward the end.

From BOB AA6AC, SKCC #6276T

Conditions seemed poor at my QTH (SOCAL) couldn't get 10m

to do a thing. Worked 15m and 20m with 15m carrying 75% of

load. DID find 3 A-1 ops. Only 1 DX stn LW3EX. Seemed 15m

was good but dropped in/out. 20m hunt and pick. That's it

from AA6AC Bob SOCAL #6276T


From Walt LW3EX, SKCC #3804T

A weekend with enhanced geomagnetic activity so the propagation on HF was very altered, anyway there were many SKCC STNs on, even up to 50MHz where I made a QSO with Julio, NP3CW and also heard W5IQS & AD5VC CQng, FB!

TNX everyone for another fun WES, BCNU 73 Walt- ..-

TA33 / 5 ele HM Yagi 50MHz - 50W - This time I dusted a WWII relic, a Junker D.R.P. Kriegsmarine with the acceptance stamp Marine Nachrichtengeraete.

From Mark N9YDZ, SKCC #9855T

Busy weekend, didn't have much radio time.

Band conditions seemed to be in rough shape.


From George KH6OZ, SKCC #3975T

Thanks for the QSOs 73s

From Ken WA2FBN, SKCC #8884

Ten Tec R4020 at 4w into dipole at 30 ft. Thanks to all that worked me.

From Gerald WA5AFD, SKCC #8150T

Band conditions were not good but spent a little time enjoying the sprint. It was a bonus for me to work Steve, VK7CW and Gabor, S57WJ, both with great signals into OK. Hope for better conditions and more time for the next one. 73 and thanks to all. TS 850 and AV 640 vertical at 100 watts. Junker straight key and SK Logger software. Thanks Ron.

From Finn WB2UWU, SKCC #1708

No time for WES. Radio club breakfast. Honey-do chores. Perfect weather for yard work. Just a couple of contacts to

keep the attendance record. Thanks Gabor and Jim. 73 Finn/SOC

From Bob WL7WH, SKCC #2940T

Terrible conditions on Sunday...best signal was qrp KH6OZ.

as usual another fun event!!!!


From Steve AI9IN, SKCC #8759T

Had a few minutes on Saturday evening. All QSOs on 20 mtrs. MFJ 9020, 5 watts to dipole.

From Dick K2HT, SKCC #5087T

T/Storms kept moving thru outlaw country forcing me to QRT. K1EDG QRP signal was great even with the storms.

Looking forward to next sprint. Thanks for QSO's and your patience with all the repeat requests. 73


From John N9OL, SKCC #4014T

Busy weekend unfortunately, but had a good time when I got to operate! Thanks to all!

From Ron W6FPS, SKCC #2126T

Not so good conditions this WES in Southern California. Heard and worked only one station on 10 and 15 meters. Worked two on 40 and the rest were on 20. New Mexico QP stations sat on prime real estate 14.050. Still had a good time thanks to the those who heard me calling. Hope to work you all again in the next event.

73, Ron


From Jim ND9M, SKCC #8233T

Tks to all who fought through the less than perfect condx!

From Steve VK7CW, SKCC #10820T

Conditions were fantastic on 20m between VK and NA with many QSO's made. Even QRP stations had great signals and I managed to work quite a few. AK4JA, Bobby, was a solid 579 on 20m and he was running just 1 watt! Also worthy of note was working K8NS, Mike, on 5 bands, with his usual great signal into VK. I even managed to pick up a new SKCC DX working XE1CHE, Jam, on 10m. In my soapbox comments after the last WES I stated that my aim was to crack over 100 QSO's in the next WES. Well I certainly achieved it, and many thanks to those who worked me. I had great fun as usual in this very enjoyable event. As usual I was using a homebrew cootie into an old Yaesu FT-1000 with about 150 watts. Antennas were a Hex Beam on 20m and above and an Inverted Vee for 40m and 80m. Thanks to all and cu in the next WES.

From Ken W9KMP, SKCC #549T

The weather was too nice to stay in and play radio for very long.

From Al KC4ZA, SKCC #4421T

QRP was a bit of a challenge. Managed only one contact all weekend on 10 and got my share of 229-459 reports (16% actually). Many thanks to all you folks for pulling my signal out! Knocked my socks off though when Steve, VK7CW came back with a 579 and thanks Steve for the LOTW and eQSL log match-ups. Strange conditions for sure, but plenty of fun to keep me going.

From Pete VA2SG, SKCC #5129T

In fact, I got 35T and 21 S for 5283 pts?? Anyways, my personnal best at this fun event. Thanks for the Q's and glad to make VE2 available.

VA2SG's soapbox image


From Jon K1NV, SKCC #2609T

I finally have an antenna that has lasted through the spring winds. I haven't operated a WES in a long time and decided to give it a try from the new QTH in Nevada.

Band conditions weren't the best, but 20 meters provided the bulk of the QSO's. New England stations were worked this time, but very few contacts were made in the western states. VK7CW, LW3EX (15M), and F6HKA provided some DX excitement. Bert's signal from France was quite strong considering our 2234Z QSO occurred well beyond the time we normally catch southwestern Europe.

My good old 5-BTV trap vertical strapped to a fence worked quite well with the FT-450 at 100 watts. When I move the rest of my gear down here from northern CA this summer, the antenna system will be upgraded considerably. A Vibroplex "Original," recently acquired, provided the dots and dashes.

Tnx to all for copying my weak signal through the QRN and QRM.


From Curt KC9UNL, SKCC #8667T

Just able to squeeze in a few contacts. Still lots of fun and always look forward to SKCC Sprints.

From JOHN K8JD, SKCC #1395T

Just spent a week in the hospital. I had to sneak to hamshack when XYL wasn't looking. Heard a ZL on 10M and found he was in the WES so got him logged and moved to 20 M for a few more easy QSOS and had to QRT.

Hope to see many SKCCers soon, when I het my strength back.


From Lee AC5GG, SKCC #10715T

I enjoyed the sprintathon even with less than desirable band conditions. Thanks to everyone who participated. '73 Lee AC5GG #10715T

From Paul WW2PT, SKCC #6583

Got to play for about an hour on Saturday, only three QSOs but they were my first contacts with my KX1. Ran battery power, aprox. 3W output to a Tarheel screwdriver vertical.

WW2PT's soapbox image


From Jim N5JPX, SKCC #8672T

Finally got the loop back in the air but band conditions were less than stellar. Tough road for QRP. Thanks to all who managed to pull my 5 watt signal out of the mud. Had fun as always.

From Larry AH6AX, SKCC #11165T

Great WES event! Enjoyed working it!

From Joe W1HFF, SKCC #6309T

Stayed on 40 and 20. Conditions improved a bit in the last hours of the sprint. Thanks everyone.

From Bob W2CKL, SKCC #9590

Had a little over an hour to work with, spent my time calling CQ with FT-817 at 500mw. No takers. Went to 5 watts at end and finally got one. HI.

From Ken K7IFG, SKCC #4694T

Weather was too nice here so worked in yard on Saturday.

Sunday was visiting Daughter. So made a few Q's.

Heard Walt LW3EX on 10 and tuned up antenna and was too late

the band dropped out. Will try and put more time in next month

73.

Ken


From Bob W0YBS, SKCC #11452

Had a great time. Wish I had more power but I used my HT-30 TX at about 30 watts and my SX-100 RX. If you worked me I would have been using one of four Vibroplex Bugs. My 1912 Model X, 1914 Original, 1921 Original or a 1923 Original. Hope to see you all next time. 73-Bob

From Bert K6CSL, SKCC #4486

I worked these 7 QSO's after I finished with the JIDX CW Contest. ZL2BLQ was my first ever SKCC QSO with ZL, or on 10m. This is always fun. 73's to all. Bert, K6CSL

From Charlie KB1UOH, SKCC #7560T

Enjoyed the time I had.

From Carl N5XE, SKCC #6307T

Conditions were not good for me on Saturday - somewhat better on Sunday. Broke out my Vibroplex Blue Racer for some BUG CW. Thanks to all who participated.

From CURT KB5JO, SKCC #2027T

Fun as usual. Propagation not as good as usual for me on 15& 20M

From Curt WA2JSG, SKCC #3018T

Condx on 20m were bad here Saturday morning, so I was ready to give up until I heard VK7CW from Tasmania coming in with a nice signal, so I got him. Go figure?? (hi hi)

In any case, good or bad conditions, the SKCC WES is always fun. Mostly ran 50w here from either an IC-7000 (mostly), or an IC-7200, into an all band vertical (my only HF antenna).


From Steve K2DEP, SKCC #9273T

Turned on my radio and I thought it was broken. Nil heard. First 2 contacts were in CA on 15M. Saturday was a wash so I did some work on my 1 tube transmitter that is currently putting out about 5 watts with a 6V6GTA. I don't know how long it will last but I have a lot of 6V6 tubes. Sunday was not much better so my XYL and I went out for the afternoon. Sure hope condx improve. See ya on the bands. 73

From ED W7GVE, SKCC #729T

This event is fun even with a poor band... I thank all who worked me.. CU next month..73/ED

From tom K9DAC, SKCC #10148T

Tough condx but had fun Didn't put the time in this weekend due to other commitments.

From Peter AK3X, SKCC #7217T

As others have mentioned, band condx were somewhat less than ideal. That coupled with XYL's need to get all the yard work done shows in my low score... come to think of it, all my WES scores are low. Anyway, three new C/T numbers in my journey from Tx5 to Tx6, so no complaints from me. 73 to all and cu next month. Peter

From Greg WA1VIL, SKCC #443T

Too nice a weekend to spend down in shack and not quite nice enough to go patio portable so it was an on and off effort. Not a great score but fun anyway. Looking forward to the May WES and unleashing my one tube chirp machine somewhere between 7110 and 7120 where my old novice rocks fall. See you there-73!

From George NC5G, SKCC #9891T

Finally, a WES on a weekend that I did not have to work. BUT, had a family reunion on Saturday, so did my usual Sunday afternoon sprint. Loads of QRN on 40 so all operating on 20 and 15. Lot's of fun as usual, especially S57WJ as my first contact.

From Ed KB3SZZ, SKCC #5763T

Hope to have more time in coming months! Best 73 to all.

From Andy WA5RML, SKCC #3169T

Yaesu FT-857D @5 watts to G5RV (40M) and vertical (20M/15M); 100th Anniversary Vibroplex Bug.

Operating time was very limited this weekend - only got on Sunday briefly in the morning and a little more in the afternoon. Propagation seemed brutal - but I enjoy these WES events tremendously. Thanks to all who participated and kudos to those who were able to copy my QRP signal!

Did not have much time this weekend. I called on 10m until Steve VK7CW answered, tnx Steve! Thanks to all those I did contact. 73....Rick

From Dave WD8KRV, SKCC #3746C

The bands were not great, but managed to get some nice QRP contacts, including some 2xQRP. Tnx to all for FB QSOs

From Bernard F5DE, SKCC #6247T

This week-end was occupied by our annual VHF meeting in Seigy.

After 250 kms to come back home, I just switched-on the station for three contacts, a very modest participation, thanks to SP6JOE, AH6AX and KG4W.

I hope to do a bit better next time !


From Noel K8NB, SKCC #3112T

As always, had a great time. This month the station was a Ten Tec Triton IV and a vibroplex champion.

From Bob AK4JA, SKCC #10535T

I didn't have time to work this WES like I wanted to do. I got on for a short time both days and worked 10 stations. Those 10 were fun and the most memorable was working Steve, VK7CW, on 1 watt. The 20 meter band was in great shape between us that morning. 73 de AK4JA

From OM1 WS8KCC, SKCC #12000T

Portable in Ocean Springs, MS. Had a couple of hours, set up a dipole at 15 feet next to the pool. Wish I would have had more time.

In the same time we had in Europe in Sunday Hungarian Straight Key contest 15-17 utc and I worked with 3 SKCC members.

Plus a few more contests.

on photo classical mid european straight keys from beginning of XX century , 2 of them are soundless, I like work on them.


From Gary NZ8Y, SKCC #9854T

Saturday was very noisy in NE Ohio. Sunday was a little better. It was fun. Thanks to everyone.

From Ed N7EDK, SKCC #7534T

Only worked the last hour, too much going on to spend more time. Thanks to Bert in France for my only A1 contact and Dana in LA. Band conx were not great at all.

Leaving Florida for California next week, will be operating as a /6 for the next WES from my new residence in northern CA. The great thing is I''ll be able put up some big antennas now, lots of room, will finally get a chance to do some 160 m.


From Bill K8WSN, SKCC #4986S

I had severe WX in my area so didn''t get on the air until Sunday afternoon. Lots of QRN and QSB here on 40 M. Had 1 QSO on 15 M, none on 10 M. It was remarkable how well some of the QRP stations came through all the bursts of QRN from storms. So TNX to everyone for all the FB QSOs in spite of the rough conditions. Hoping for better luck next time!

From Ken VE7KBN, SKCC #5533T

Used my HB1B. On 20m only. Checked for activity now and

then throughout the sprint time period, but did not hear

much. Next month!!. Thanks for the sprints.

From Bruce AA5CO, SKCC #10643T

Very limited time available but had a lot of fun. Thanks to all of you that pulled my 4 watts out of the ether for a good QSO. I used my new Vizkey horizontal bug--I was fortunate to purchase one the last 2 bugs Tom made before he retired Vizkey. It's a sweet bug and looks "cool" on the desk. Since there is no spot for Senator worked on the scoring page, I added to my tribune and centurion totals to get the correct bonus points---that's why my "Total QSOs" is less that my sum of Tribune and Centurions. 73 and see y'all next month from Tulsa.

From RON NT8P, SKCC #7312T

Vry poor band conditions and a beautiful weekend made for vry low score. Tnx to all that heard my 50 watts. Ron

From Pete K2ARM, SKCC #9741

To many other contests. Bands were not too bad. I also had antenna problems. Maybe May will be better.

From DAVE N9ZXL, SKCC #7114T

HELLO ALL... BUSY WEEKEND THIS TIME.. CAR SHOW, AND SHOP WORK.... SEE YOU ALL IN APRIL WES.....R4040, G5RV, MA5B, 4 WTS.... C U ALL LATER..........DAVE.73..........N9ZXL...

AND AGAIN THANKS TO THE SKCC BOARD FOR THEIR WORK.....


From JOHN K8BAT, SKCC #10395T

Operating conditions were fair at best for this WES due to quite a bit of noise on the bands. Still, I was happy with 42 contacts to 20 states and 5 countries, especially Argentina.

I also dusted off my bencher straight key for this WES, so I enjoyed working on my spacing between each dit and dah very much. Hope to hear you next month.


From Keith WD8AFB, SKCC #7196T

Had a nice time. Didnt have much time to be on the air. It was just too beautiful outside! Still working on my "bug" skills. I have the staright key hooked up too in case I need to switch back to QRS.

Thanks everyone!

Bands were pretty rough all weekend. Retired the old IC-746 and broke in the new IC-7410. Glad I had the notch and noise reducer controls. Activity was up and down. Spent downtime buying crystals or working on a power supply for next month.

Thanks for another great WES everyone. Special thanks to K3UK and K2RFP. See you next month with a 6146 single tube transmitter hopefully! 73, GL, Dan...


From Mark K7MJG, SKCC #9295T

Bands were challenging but it was fun. 73. Mark

From Don KF7DS, SKCC #8281T

Spent most of my time on 20m on Saturday, and only had time for an hour on Sunday about 2200 UTC, and the bands were fading. Hard to get time on the air during Spring weekends. Condx on 20m on Saturday seemed good with qso's to old friends like Walt/LW3EX and Steve/VK7CW...thanks for the DX! Don KF7DS

From Brian VE5CUL, SKCC #1672T

The WES was a fun way to spend the week-end. We were back into the cold - abt 20F. I added c's and T's for the Senator QSO's. Thanks for the QSO's and I hope to catch up with those that I met on the sked page but didn't contact another time. I was out portable a couple of times last week and have hopes of doing that more often when we get spring for real. 73 - Brian

Not much time to work this WES, but tried to stick my nose in and say hello. Was there a solar event Saturday morning? All of the hf bands seemed to go dead at about 1250Z .. thanks to all for the Q's and to the leadership crew for letting us play ... 73 Ron

From Jack KK0I, SKCC #2370T

This WES put me over the top to acquire my Senator Award. Thanks to all those who contributed. We ran the Eagle and both the K4VIZ right angle bug and the K4VIZ Cootie Key. They're two of my favorite CW sending instruments. See you in the next event...73, jack

From Allen KA5TJS, SKCC #5172T

Saturday morning started out great. I worked Steve VK7CW with 4 watts and he gave me at 579. Did well that morning but Sunday morning I could not get OK or LA!

A lot of fun anyway. Will see you all next month.

From CHARLIE N0CVW, SKCC #9074T

Lots of QRN this stormy weekend. But when things were quiet, 20 meters was wide open!

From Joe WS9E, SKCC #3859T

We returned from a week long trip just before the sprint ended. I managed one contact. I might have squeezed in one or two more, but it was time to unload the car...

We will do better next time.


From Dan W5BM, SKCC #7754T

Did not have time to stay on the air long for this sprint. It was still an enjoyable sprint. Thanks to all who participated, 73 Dan

From Steve N8CPA, SKCC #8

Fun for the time available. I used my usual 'passive CQ,' i.e. I parked the rig on 40M and listened with filters wide open while I worked on non-radio projects. And every time I heard a new station call CQ WES, I'd zero beat +/- and answer.

From Ed WH7TT, SKCC #11384

This was a fun event. Wish I had more time to work CW.

From Nick VE3EIB, SKCC #9760C

Managed to squeeze in a few hours of fun while working on the Honey Do list. ;)

From Joe KF0XV, SKCC #3520T

No time what so ever but had to make at least 1 contact. Maybe next month.

From Randy KB4QQJ, SKCC #3508T

Only got to play for a few minutes. Scoring window wasn't open so I'm late adding log. Hope it makes it.
