From John G0RDO, SKCC #2133T

Well - the conditions were absolutely awful ! Only managed to work three WES stations, and thank you to 2E0UTC/Jack, F6HKA/Bert and EA3NO/Lluis all on 20m.

I used my old TS-830S with three valves, a small vertical antenna and one of my favourite keys - a Marconi PS No 213A.

Hope next month has better conditions :-( Still fun!

From Mike NO8C, SKCC #7239T

Thanks to everyone that participated! 73s from Miller City, Ohio de Mike (NO8C)

From Dan W9DLN, SKCC #3635S

Thanks for another great WES everyone. Special thanks to K3UK and K2RFP.

From Eldon W0SZV, SKCC #4999S

in and out but had a good time. lots of time getting up new loop. Jupiter at 100w, 500ft loop up 25ft, cootie key. Only managed to catch one of the Missouri Outlaws. Maybe a boat anchor next time

From Dave KC2ICA, SKCC #2206

I was qrp portable in Brooklyn's Prospect Park, and though I usually squeeze out 3-4 watts out on 40 meters, I thought it might be fun to see what 1 watt into a random wire hung over a tree branch could do. WES is my kind of contest, no stress, all fun.

-Dave White KC2ICA


From BOB AA6AC, SKCC #6276T

Conditions remained at dismal. Can't work what you can't hear. 10m nil. 15m WP3C (PR). Balance were on 20m. 20m POOR. Condx worse than last month. At least for me. QSL's follow in mail. AA6AC CA BOB #6276T (3 tubes). 73's/TNX

From Mike K8NS, SKCC #10580T

Worked all bands 6m thru 160m. Had more 6m qsos this WES then before. Sure like chasing the tubes, all you tubies had great t9 sigs except (call with held) the guy with the spark gap. Tnx Steve VK7CW for 5 bands. Tnx N4OW for bouncing ur 6m sig off an airplane for 3 sec. NO KIDDING! 73 and tnx qso to all.

From Don KF7DS, SKCC #8281T

Tough conditions all weekend - 40m played well Saturday night, but the high bands during the day seemed very attenuated. Had fun all the same and had limited time anyway (Spring chores). Many thanks to Matt, AA1JD, who persisted to get the RST portion of the exchange for my only Sunday QSO. 73 and see you in SKS. Don KF7DS

From Steve VK7CW, SKCC #10820T

Conditions not to good for this WES but 20m provided most of my contacts. Of note I managed to work K8NS Mike on all bands, tnx Mike and you have a great set of ears. I used my TWanger for all contacts and have great fun as usual. Thanks for all and best 73 from Tasmania.

From Joe WS9E, SKCC #3859T

I got on for a short time, Sunday. Signals on 20 were not very strong. Bert, F6HKA was the strongest. I heard nothing on 10 or 15. There were a few people on 40.

I used the Orion, Speed-X straight key and the stealth dipole.

See you next time.


From George NC5G, SKCC #9891T

Well, that was fun. Pulled my late father's Drake TR4C out of the closet for this one. Let's see; no cw filters, no RIT or split available, no headphones with a 1/4 inch plug, no computer hook up, no antenna tuner so limited to bands with resonant antennas(40 and 15). Was 15 dead today? My Dad was not a cw person, so, other than tune up, this probably the first time the TR4C was ever on cw. Hope it sounded OK to those I worked. Did I mention that there were no cw filters? Think I will go hug my Elecraft K2 and KX3.

From Chris KJ4RGH, SKCC #12029

The conditions were rough, but it was still a good time. I planned to have a Valiant and SX-42 or RAL on the air, but I didn't get them ready in time so I ran 5 watts again from a K1 into a low random wire.

From Ken N8KR, SKCC #7559S

No CW filter, drift and much needed RIT! Brought back memories of novice days! Besides the SWR and Watt meters I added a "rig"(meat) thermometer to monitor temperature from those 16 tubes! Fun to fire up the old Tempo One . . . makes one appreciate modern technology! As always - a GREAT time!

From AL N4OW, SKCC #11375T

Tough Going with my indoor "hat rack" antenna, (thanks K8NS). A fun WES "because" of the bad conditions. Thanks to all the golden ears that dug me out of the S7 noise. Tip of the hat to KD5LCP, Karl for getting his T. 73 de N4OW

From Mike K5TRI, SKCC #9409C

Not much to hear. Conditions at my QTH were not the best. But I made a few contacts at least. Antenna needs improvement.

From Doug N3PDT, SKCC #6861S

My favorite theme. Hadn't had this pair fired up for a while. What a dream to operate! The old receiver really held its own. Worked mostly S&P. Got four fellow Missouri Outlaws (Thanks Ray, Dave, Larry and Eldon). Worked mostly S&P and just plain had fun.

From Tony W4FOA, SKCC #641T

Always enjoy the boatanchor event. Rig used was an Eico 720 transmitter, Heathkit HG-10B VFO, Drake 2B/2BQ receiver. Key my trusty, ole Les Logan Model 500 bug. Power 50 watts.

From Paul VE1PVH, SKCC #7728T

Condx were not good with lots of QSB. Still had a great time. Thanks to all.

From Jack KK0I, SKCC #2370S

Almost forgot about the sprint...managed to catch the last couple hours. Captured a couple BA. Catch you next trip.

73, jack


From Kieth WI0S, SKCC #2048T

Thanks to all that copied my chirpy signal. Ran the Globe Chief 90, Globe 755a vfo and a Hammarlund HQ110 receiver with a J38 straight key and a J36 Lionel bug. Was a busy weekend installing new kitchen appliances for the Station Manager but was able to work a couple hours or so. This is my favorite sprint theme, would like to see one during the cold winter months. 73 Kieth wi0s 2048t

From Joe KD2JC, SKCC #710S

Graduations, birthdays, what can I say. Used my DX-60B and HG-10B VFO. Receiver a solid state Heathkit HR-1680. Hope I have more time next time. Thanks to all. 73

From Ray KJ4LEN, SKCC #6956

Bad weekend to run qrp. Didn't have much time to sprint but may 7 contacts. I used my Knwd TS130V at 5 watts and my trusty ole Radio Shack straight key. I'll see everyone next time. Ray

From Noel K8NB, SKCC #3112T

I got out my Dad's Drake TR-4 for the WES this time. This was the rig I made my first contact with in 1976. Still works like a champ. Sure makes me appreciate CW filters though. 19 tubes makes for a bunch of heat in the shack also, would be better during the winter.

From DAVE W0YZZ, SKCC #5519T

LOTS OF FUN-HEAVY QRM AT TIMES I ALWAYS LOOK FORWARD TO WES AND SKS CU NEXT TIME DAVE

From Jim ND9M/9, SKCC #8233S

Although I signed portable, I was actually mobile, parked alongside a hiking trail in a mosquito-ridden park. Sending with a cootie and swatting bugs at the same time is really a challenge!

From RON NT8P, SKCC #7312T

thanks for the contacts. 50w this time Hpe bands better next month Ron E

From Larry AH6AX, SKCC #11165T

Had a great time; I had hoped to finish up my Senator Quest, but came up 30 short...(but I DID get 78 Ts & Ss during the WES... so... it's all good!) We'll get er done yet...no hurry/no worry!

From Ron AC2C, SKCC #2748S

A fun Weekend Sprint. I gave the new SKCC Key a good workout.

From Joe K0IVK, SKCC #1436T

Was in process of setting up boat anchor station, have HT-37 but no tube RX. Have an SX-99 in transit UPS will deliver either June 9 or 10. Have a 51S-1 but sent it to K3ICH, so very bad timing for me. Bands were fair Saturday but terrible Sunday.

Had lots of fun though


From Randy N8KQ, SKCC #8934T

Didn't get enough air time this weekend, summer things to do. But fun as always. Tnx all fer the contacts. 73 till the next one. Randy

From Rick K7CHS, SKCC #8573T

Thanks W9DLN Dan and KC9W Randy for the 2 contacts I did make Saturday morning. Had to drive to Las Vegas airport to get my grandson on Saturday and Sunday was church and family gathering. Hope you all had fun.

73, Rick

Kingman, Az


From Bill WA4FAT, SKCC #11062T

Thanks so much to everyone who managed to pull me out of the static on 40 this weekend. It's the only band I have to use at present, and we had a solid weekend of strong Alabama thunderstorms to exacerbate matters. Never-the-less, I had a great time during my second-ever WES. One of the highlights was working a non-member, explaining SKCC, and then learning he was running a Johnson Viking Adventurer - my own very first transmitter. For a few moments there I was 12 years old again, and transported to that time of wonder and amazement so long ago when I first embraced the joy of our wonderful hobby. And who says time machines are only the stuff of science fiction?

From JOHN K8JD, SKCC #1395T

This month I had time for a few 1-2 hour sessions saturday evening and Sunday morning.

I was using the break-in function of the FT990 and finally got used to it.

I was bouncing between 40 and 20 and late in the evening finally made a few contacts on 80M.


From Ed N7EDK, SKCC #7534T

Now that I'm retired, I thought I'd have more time for the radio. Wrong......seems I'm busier now than ever ! The radio and skcc have taken a back seat for a while.

I did make one contact on 40m Sat nite.

I tried Sat morning, but no one seemed to hear me !

Sunday was busy, never got a chance to get on, oh well.

Maybe next month will be better. 72/73 till July.......


From Jim N5JPX, SKCC #8672T

What a weekend! My eldest son and two of my grandchildren had birthdays this weekend so I had to operate the WES between birthday cake and ice cream. I actually like that plan and may find a way to incorporate it into every sprint. The bands were very quiet here. Made QRP a challenge for this WES. Great time as always and many thanks to the folks that work so hard to put these things together. SKCC makes ham radio FUN!

From Julio NP3CW, SKCC #2632T

A lot of activity on this WES.

Many stations using tubes radios but able to work only Ben KV4RH using a 3 tubes hybrid radio in 20M band. Thanks Ben for the Extra bonus.

Tnx Bert for the only European station worked, John VK4TJ

in Australia, Doug VE3DVC in Ontario,and Gem PY2NGN.

Good luck. And see you guys on next Straight Key Sprint June 25,2014


From Jose VE3DTI, SKCC #7020C

Very poor conditions here up North... I was very glad to contact Bert F6HKA in 15m, Jim WA5KMA and Tom W4CU in 20m, and Tim K9TM, Dave W3NP, Hans WA1LWS and Dan W9DLN in 40m. The rig was the KX3 at 5W with the 43 Ft. vertical wire. The key was the "1871 MC" practice PTT with a history in the family (see picture). 73 All, Jose VE3DTI SKCC #7020C.

From George/19 KH6OZ, SKCC #3975T

Only Operated on Sunday. Started at 50W and then went to 75W

more or less. Operated all Heathkit equipment. HW101 radio,

HP23A Power supply, Antenna tuner SA-2040, old military style cans and Brown Bros. ST key.

I was surprised the Radio radio worked all day. The power supply did not want to fire up the radio at first. I guess it needs some work. Thanks for all the fun 73s

Tough WES with almost 17 hrs of QRN and poor propagation except the last 2 ½ hours when conditions improved a lot. It was still a lot of fun. Once a month is not enough. Thank you to all who endured the QRN to QSO with me. 73 de Art W2NRA SKCC #11634S

From Jim AD0AB, SKCC #9667T

The weather was bad here, but the fun was great! Thanks for the QSOs. jim

From ANDRE F5JBR, SKCC #2574

Hello friends,

after 12 years of "forced rest" I resume my activities telegraphy.

I'm not QRV (antenna problems and QSJ), so I took the "" option.

My LOG is a mixture of receipt by the QRA, but also the use of new technologies at our disposal to make the telegraph WEBSDR sites: http://websdr.org/

Please ... do not hold it against me (this is the new generation of SWL ... HI ... HI ... HI ) ... and I promise to come back next month and the month after. .. until I am QRV on all bands.

Again THANK YOU for a great time and very soon ...

with 73s of

F5JBR/ANDRE

NOTE: the information transmitted by the station are heard in the line "Coment" ... I do not know where to put them.

If it will not, give me an example of Cabrilo format and I will send you my LOG in CABRILLO format.

From Frank W4HAY, SKCC #678T

Somehow I thought WES was next weekend and didn't realize it until I heard some folks around 14.050.

I tried to work WES during the Canadian F1 race, but keeping concentration was just too difficult as exciting as the race was. Sorry if I stepped on anybody!

See y'all for the SKS.


From Keith WD8AFB, SKCC #7196T

A wonderful time again gents. Sorry that my tube bonus dropped from 21 to 2 tubes about mid day Saturday. My HW-101 got "tired" and started acting up. Guess I need to get some more cooling on her. She has "hot flashes" now. I had to shut down for lightning the last 3 hours of the WES. I already had one lighting strike in the past year.

Hopefully I will get a GOOD antenna up for next month. I am stuck using my Hustler 6-BTV vertical. I know it is difficult to hear me right now. Thank you to the 95 people that tried hard.

See you all next month!

From Karen W4KRN, SKCC #4495S

Thanks to everyone for the contacts. It was a busy weekend, so I wasn't on the air as much I would have liked. CU next month! 73

From JOHN K8BAT, SKCC #10395T

Saturday was a beautiful day; so many members must have been outside because there weren't that many on the radio : ). Sunday was rainy in Ohio, but due to a very high noise level, you couldn't hear members even if they were there :(.

Still, I was happy with my effort. I made 33 contacts with 21 states, including MT and SD, which is tough to hear in Ohio.

I also got some new numbers for my tx5; and if KY is willing to QSL, that will be #49 for my WAS-CW! Yahoo.

See you next month.


From Bill WA8OKR, SKCC #3200T

Great fun for the first try. Too bad bands were so upset. Thank you to all who make this possible.

From Charlie/2 KB1UOH, SKCC #7560T

I enjoyed the couple of hours that I was on with my home brew 6V6 transmitter to a dipole antenna. I am looking forward to the next WES.Charlie

From ED W7GVE, SKCC #729T

This one was a bit slower but still fun. 0 QSOs on 10 meters and 15 was spotty. But its always nice to hear old friends

CU next month 73// ED..W7GVE


From Ken W9KMP, SKCC #549T

Forgot to pay attention to the "boat anchor" info and conditions at my QTH were poor but I still had a great time.

From Dave W3NP, SKCC #3182S

This is one of my favorite WES events since it motivates me to fire up some of my vintage gear. This time I chose the Johnson Ranger and Collins 75A4 combo since they have a large tube count (36) and the A4 with it's 500 hz filter is a decent receiver for crowded condx - the Super Scaf filter helped too.

I used my oldest bug, a Vibroplex Original by Horace G Martin dating from 1915. Also used the German Junker straight key.

Conditions were pretty bad with poor propagation, lots of qsb, and storms around ending with a tornado warning Sun late pm which closed me down.

I had fun twisting knobs, zero beating, and all the things that go along with vintage rigs. I managed to get 161 tubes from the stations I worked. Everyone should spend some time in front of a "boatanchor" station to really appreciate how easy modern radios are to use.

First Sprint

From Werner N8BB, SKCC #5433S

One of the toughest Wes's I have done to date with 1 watt. More times than not I was completely not heard although F6HKA always works me. Managed a few but wasn't nearly as much fun as a few months ago when conditions were very good.

Thanks for all the help and see you next time around.

From GARY KF7WNS, SKCC #9895

Always fun to run my Drake gear-2NT/R4B. 60W to an InvVee. 20M was in pretty poor shape this month. I had a harder time making contacts than I usually do running QRP. See you in the next sprint. 73, Gary

From Bill N0UMP, SKCC #659T

Made three contacts with my old Swan Cygnet 270 and then swithced to my Kenwood TS-430, (solid-state rig), then I swithced to my Icom IC-746. Noisy and weak bands plus a lot of other things going on. 73 all....Bill

From Carl N5XE, SKCC #6307T

Band conditions seemed to be poor. One of these days, I would like to make a showing in the WES.

From Bert F6HKA, SKCC #6069S

Conditions were very poor but had fun as always. Thanks everybody and see you next month. 73 Bert

From Alan KA5VZG, SKCC #6264S

Finally ready to get back into it after winter damage to both antennas. . . . Oops, thunderstorms and new antenna problem (bad connection, I think) :-(

From Pat AC0SR, SKCC #7072

Used the Alinco DX-70 at 5 watts for this WES. Condx were terrible until the last couple of hours, but was still able to work coast to coast. It was a real thrill working Bert F6HKA on 20 meters with 5 watts! Thanks to all. 73 & GL on the next WES. Patrick AC0SR

From LARRY KC0M, SKCC #8177

Storms, poor bands and a busy weekend; sorry I didn't have more time to work the WES but I still got a few QSO's.

From Al KC4ZA, SKCC #4421T

40M and 20M opened up between 2300 and 0330 Saturday-Sunday and made about half my contacts during that period. The rest of the time new contacts were tough to find. Made only 4 contacts on 15M. But the challenges are what make this fun. Truly enjoy working WES.

From CHAS N2SO, SKCC #7834T

Hello everyone! I am starting to get the hang of the WES but I completely forgot to record the tube numbers! I tried a couple of hours of CQing but mostly S&P. I don't know how you fellas pound your key hour after hour calling CQ. The band conditions were not too great except of course in the final two hours on 40 meters. There were so many stations calling and I didn't have enough time to work them all. Go figure. 73, Charles N2SO

From Rick K0KEX, SKCC #5220S

My first contact was W1LIC on 6 meters but condx changed quickly..and storms in our area sent me off to a tile project. Sunday the WX had settled and a few contacts while finishing up the tile job. Reading the comments on the Boat Anchor rigs brought back fond memories..CU on the next one...73 Rick

From Joe W1HFF, SKCC #6309T

I agree with most ops that conditions were pretty bad. It's great to see the pictures of the boat anchors. I'm old enough to remember when those rigs were new and they are beautiful. Thanks to those that posted them. 73 to all and see you in the next sprint.

Joe


From Dave NE5DL, SKCC #5081S

Operated a couple of hours QRP on the back patio portable, sometimes with a leg strapped paddle. Tried out an MFJ Big Ear antenna but 20M conditions were so poor can’t draw any conclusions on the ant. Thanks to those who pulled out my QRP signal.

Most interesting was KN4MX/4 operating from a 42ft sailboat in dock and using the boat back stay as an antenna.

From Jerry K9PMV, SKCC #1438T

Enjoyed giving out my tube count (35). 15 tubes in the SX101a and 20 tubes in the HT32. In 1958, this Hallicrafter pair cost almost $1k! It is cumbersome to operate compared to any tranceiver. However, the receiver has good filters and the transmitter keys sharp. Thanks to SKCC for a good excuse to put it on the air. WES always enjoyable. 73 to all.

From Garry VE5SG, SKCC #6154T

I had to miss the May WES, so I was determined to carry through on this one. Conditions here were variable, but mostly poor. I had reports of 339 up 599. For me it produced a fun weekend. KX3 @ 5w, Vibroplex key and a triband on 20m, which was th only band that worked for me. 73, Garry.

From Karl KD5LCP, SKCC #11878C

Had a real blast with this one. Thanks to all who helped me get to T status.

From ED WB0CLL, SKCC #9600T

GOOD CONTEST. FAMILY OBLIGATIONS KEPT ME FROM OPERATING AS MUCH AS I WOULD LIKE.

From Peter AK3X, SKCC #7217T

Mostly a Saturday evening event for me. Conditions on Sunday and

an ailing cat kept me off the air on Sunday. 73 and see you all next

From Bill KE3O/M, SKCC #9282T

Was away from the QTH (and my boatanchors) this weekend so I had to go mobile. Only operated 2.5 hours on Sunday as /M from Fenwick Island, Delaware, about 150 yards from the Atlantic Ocean. QRN was pretty bad but to my surprise my first contact was Bob, GM3ZDH in Scotland. Thanks to all worked … hpe 2 cuagn next month. 73, Bill

From Dan W5BM, SKCC #7754T

Condx were a little ruff, but still had fun. Thanks to all

From Kerry WD5ABC, SKCC #12

I was out of town and then had to mow the yard so I didn't have time for much of an effort but I had to make a couple of contacts just to keep the streak alive! I used the Czech key and the Flex 3000 at 5 watts into a low dipole. I'm hoping to get moved into the new house in a couple of weeks so I can get the dipole up at least 30 ft or so. Nothing to write home about but better than what I've got now! 73 and thanks for the SKCC contacts!

From Ben/3 KV4RH, SKCC #114789

First SKCC sprint. The TS-520 performed like a dream, and the Czech key kept rolling right along. Condx weren't the best, but there were a lot of booming signals, and some practice at digging folks out of the noise floor--all very sporting indeed. Never did go very long between QSOs. Was fun to throw out CQs and be working minor CW pileups for the first time! Had a couple runs of 10-12 QSOs without stopping. FUN! Thanks to all who came back to me, and congrats to those who made their award goals. Still 6 short of my C, but will take care of that before the next WES.

From Steve/20 K2DEP, SKCC #9273T

Had a great time with these boat anchors. My DX-20 operated very well at 25W and the National NC 183D receiver worked but certainly needs an alignment. I restored both of those rigs. My key was a SCHURR Mahogany straight key which is just awesome. Sunday was a washout for me as condx here in MD presented lots of QRN and QSB. Hope to see you all next month. 73

This was our first time on SKCC. Over the weekend we were at North Olmsted Park for all Scouts Weekend. An event we have done for 24 Years. The scouts enjoyed watching as well as using the selection of keys and other items there. Some sat down to see how a contact was done. Something to look forward to next time. 73.

From Allen KA5TJS, SKCC #5172T

It was a ruff weekend here in East TX. I tried 40, 20 and 15 without a lot of luck. I even called CQ for a while without a lot of takers. Thanks for the guys who pulled me out. 746Pro @ 4 watts and a wire dipole.

CU next month: Allen


From RANDY KC9W, SKCC #5277T

This was my second WES weekend event. The band and weather conditions were not ideal to say the very least. I am still trying to determine the best way to operate during these events. Do I sit on one frequency and call CQ or do I dial up and down trying to find stations that I haven't worked? I did the sit on one place and call CQ for the majority of my time. But I went looking for the special tube stations. I really want to thank W3NP and the other tube stations that I worked for pulling my QRP signal out of the noise. I couldn't understand how in some cases I would give out a 559 or 549 and get a 599 or 589 in return and them running 100 watts. The propagation can be a weird thing. I must also say I cant understand how I could hear someone blowing my headset off and burying my s meter needle and try as I might they just couldn't hear me calling them. Radio still has its mystery. The other thing I need to learn is better time management. I wasted a lot of time when activity was at a minimum and then at the very end when there was such a flurry of activity I just had to listen. Experience will teach me these things. But no matter what these things and the other events and the people have made radio fun for me again.And to think all this entertainment is FREE! Randy-KC9W-5277T THANKS TO ALL WHO WORKED SO HARD TO MAKE THIS ALL POSSIBLE!!

From Drew AF2Z, SKCC #2082S

Condx were not good. There was amazingly little DX or mults, though I did catch a nice strong signal from Steve VK7CW. That was Sunday morning on 20m, which band was otherwise pretty vacant. Had lots of local summer "QRM" here now with the windows open: dogs, planes, birds... what a racket. I logged 274 tubes total: Dave W3NP topped the list with 36. My rig: Elecraft K3 running 100 watts to indoor cobweb antenna; trusty ol' Junker straight key. 73 and a tap o' the key to all!

From Ray WB0PYF, SKCC #5169S

Condx tough for qrp, thanks for pulling my sig out of the mud, 72 Ray

From Ted K4UFT, SKCC #4289T

Only one contact ... Bert, F6HKA, 20 Meters, after Midnight local time. (0007 UTC) Big signal!!!

Too many UFOs (Unwanted Family Obligations) this weekend ... hopefully, none for SKS and July WES and SKS.

FT950 @20 Watts to home-brew vertical. Czech Army key.

Found a 20 Meter Hustler mobile coil at hamfest ... seems to work a lot better than Hamstick I've been using. Sure would love to work at least one of our activities with a REAL antenna!!!


From Bill W7JZE, SKCC #6053

Well I forgot to submit a log after my last WES, but I had fun anyway and enjoyed handing out points to others :-) This time I am remembering to submit, but only made a couple of Q's with WES folks on 20 and 40 meters. Had a couple of other stations answer my "CQ WES" who were not in the WES event but that was fine too and I had a great time rag chewing with them anyway.

WES is always fun for me regardless the score. Nice friendly folks here in SKCC. I needed a total repeat from one WES contact because I bumped the VFO. He came right back and repeated everything. No problem. I love this SKCC Org!

Also, it is always nice to fire up the old Swan 700cx-ss16 and matching Mark II PA. That gave me 16 tubes total bonus and my shack was plenty warm too!

Hope to see y'all next month.
