Soapbox


From Ted K4UFT, SKCC #4289T

Really bad condx in upstate SC. 40M finally opened up the last hour or so. Made one QRP contact this morning on 20M.

Icom 7000 @50W to end-fed long wire.

Like the new entry format.


From nate W4NA, SKCC #5262T

started out gud on 40m then got bad cond all day except the last 3hrs i worked at our clubhouse which has a small beam and made out like a bandit had fun like always

From Curt WA2JSG, SKCC #3018T

Fun event, as always. Thanks to all who pulled my 'lil signal out of the QRN. Icom IC-703, 5w to a vertical, 12v battery. English Kent straight key.

From Allen KA5TJS, SKCC #5172T

Worked all QRP but only 6 contacts. Great WES but not a lot of time to play and it was very hot in the garage. Just made a few on Saturday night and Sunday morning. Still working on making all of the WES's this year. Got it so far. Thanks to those who listened for my signal from East Texas.

73's Allen


From FRED KB0LF, SKCC #6302T

First time I operated QRP for any extended period! It's harder than I thought.

From Carl N5XE, SKCC #6307T

Band conditions were not too hot (unlike my weather here - 106 degrees F. Sunday), but still managed to work QRP for this WES. Modified my Vibroplex Blue Racer with an alligator clip to slow down my "dits". Seems to work FB. Many thanks to all who put up with my "bug fist" and my puny QRP signal. 73 to all, de N5XE

From Jake KK6L, SKCC #7518

This was a tricky contest. With all the IARU interference going on, I found it pretty hard to negotiate the bands in a productive way. Nevertheless, despite the bands being very unsettled on Sunday, I made about the same number as last time, and I was running QRP! So, there's something to be said for that! Looking forward to next month already.

From Mike K0MC, SKCC #5241T

Had a good time when I was on. Was also working IARL. Will be on more next month.

From Bill W4CUX, SKCC #5497T

I got started late Saturday night, but had a really good run on 20 and 40m from about 0200 to 0400. Despite the other contests going on, I was surprised at the ease with which I was able to pick up signals. I worked QRP the entire time, and received the best reports ever. Lots of 579-599. I encountered less QRM than most regular QRO sprints. Looking forward to the next event.

73 - Bill W4CUX


From Steve KE7WAV, SKCC #5500

This was a heap of fun. I found a nice frequency and even had a little pileup running 30W into a dipole up 12 feet. It just bothered me that some "lid" came smashing in over my last three contacts just holding down his key! Anyway thanks to all who stopped by for an exchange at 7.120 last night.

From Stevve W7SRM, SKCC #6836T

Don't normally work 40 meters at 4 in the afternoon but I did during this WES. Fun even with spotty prop. 73

From Mike W5EHM, SKCC #6304T

Thanks to all those that managed to work my 5 watts. Also, thanks to all those that tried (W7SRM, great effort). See you next month.

73,

Mike W5EHM


From Bert W5ZR, SKCC #2931T

Decided to run 500W this time so that I could hold a freq while the IARU Contest was running. As it turned out this was a poor weekend for QRP, and the high power was a big help. I sure feel smart when I stumble into things like this.

Used the new ZRSprinter Version 1.14 for this sprint and found no bugs. So I recommend that all of you get my secret weapon on the SKCC web page- the new Ver1.14 is posted.

Thanks for all the qsos; it was great fun!

73 Bert

PS Worked K9SKC on 2 bands, where are my points!!!!!


From Edward N7EDK, SKCC #7534

Well another fun WES, even thou I didn't get a lot of time on the air again. One good thing about the WES, I get some practice in, and my sending is getting better. I still need to use a script to keep me straight, but that will get better with time too I suppose. The KX1 did well again at 3.5 watts, contacts on 20 meters were from 400 miles , out to almost 1600 miles. Amazing little radio, I love it better than the K1. And I enjoy using my Palm Radio straight key, better than my flameproff and Nye sk, am I crazy ?? It's a great little key ! Thanks to my contacts and we'll see everyone at the next WES ! Ed

From Bill NT9K, SKCC #1926T

Sick again today, so not much time to sprint. I stayed on 40m when I was able to play. My rig this time was an ATS-3b with abt 3.5w QRP. The lower tin attached is a digital encoder with a W5USJ audio amp, a tiny laptop speaker and volume control. Ant was full wave delta loop and my key was a GHD Sideswiper.

Until next time, 72. NT9K..

From Dave WD8KRV, SKCC #3746

Didn't have much time to operate, but tnx to W5ZR for the one QSO with my HW-8. 73 de WD8KRV

From Doug N3PDT, SKCC #6861T

Another fine WES. I really enjoyed the QRP theme. Heard a lot of good sigs and worked a lot of members for the first time. Had good success on the three bands I have QRP rigs for, 20m, 40m and 80m. Rigs used were a K1 (5w) and an SW+80(abt 3w) into either a gnd mnt vert or an OCF Dipole at about 30ft.

Thanks to all, and see you next sprint.


From Danny K9KHJ, SKCC #7179

Most hours spent in a WES---and loved every minute of it. Worked in 3 chunks and heard some great signals and operators.

First time working many stations on 40m and 20m, that was fun. Once the IARU noise cleared out, it was easier to pick out the QRP stations.

Used the ZR logging program, what a difference that made. Also, worked Bert W5ZR and his BIG signal on 20m and 40m.


From Dick K2HT, SKCC #5087

Strange propagation, worked my friend W0SZV on 20 meters a distance of 22.3 air miles. Thanks for all the QSO's

From Gordon N6WK, SKCC #3T

Great Fun. Worked Werner and also worked John VK4TJ who taught me about world Maps Hi Hi We have it upside down here ! Thanks to Everyone that I got to work.

73,

Gordon


From Greg WA1VIL, SKCC #443T

Fun sprint-special thanks to Lluis and Bert for copying my 5 watts across the pond! Just too nice a day to spend it all in the mancave pounding brass though. Where were 15 and 10? Both seemed dead as a doornail form here in MA. 73 to all and see you next time!

From Mike KD8JHJ, SKCC #4877T

Great conditions Saturday night. Strange conditions Sunday morning and afternoon. I stuck it out as long as I could and then went swimming with the family. Signals came up towards the end of the wes. Finally got K9SKC on 80 meters at 22:07. Thanks Werner!

The funniest thing I heard all weekend was a comment by K6JF on the K3UK sked page: "Is everyone running QRP or do the bands stink?" 7/10 17:41 UTC

Most contacts this time around I used my Nye Speed-X, a few with the bug and the NT9K Pro Pump. All the fists sounded great I hope mine was as kind on the ears. You QRP'ers are brave souls -I could not let go of my 50 watt life raft!

Thanks all for a fun weekend on the air.

From Gil KF7KPL, SKCC #7226T

I set up in a remote location for this WES. At 0000z I was ready to operate and at 0005z is started to rain! Unplugged the radio and jumped into the truck to stay dry (thunderstorms at 9000 ft) and took a nap. Woke up to rain swollen clouds and a nice rainbow. Took a chance and made a few contacts while sitting in the truck and finally went to sleep in the back seat. Woke up the next morning to beautiful blue skies. Tried a few more contacts and the clouds started rolling in again. I pulled the plug and packed up before it rained again. Station was FT817 Yaesu feeding a hb G5RV suspended from a hb portable mast at about 33 feet. I was able to make some nice contacts but it was tough with antoher contest going and the QRO ops. In all it was a good time. Thanks for the QSO's es 73 de Gil KF7KPL

From Jim K5BZH, SKCC #447

This weekend's propagation was a bit on the weak side even though 10 and 15 opened during the IARU event. Most of the contacts seemed to be between U.S. stations, with a handful to other NA stations, plus a few to SA, with a scattering to Europe, Asia, Oceania, and very few to Africa. Conditions were poor, but the IARU activity was high.

I only worked 16 contacts during WES, 9 of them during IARU (2 on 20 and the rest on 40). I managed to add 7 more after IARU closed.

Sunday morning I went with Brad, N5LUL, to the KVII Channel 7 Transmitter site where he has a repeater. He completed a couple of small tasks and we headed back to Amarillo. Sunday afternoon 4 more hours were consumed to attend my son-in-law's celebration of his 38th anniversary of his birth. Got home 45 minutes before WES ended, only netted two more contacts during that window (NG7Z and K8WSN).

My thanks to all that worked me during WES, you guys kept it from being a total loss, yes, it was worth the effort.

Might comment that I made just over 100 Qs during the IARU, most of them stateside. Lots of activity, but little in the way of DX.


From Alan WA1AR, SKCC #4079T

CU next time.

From Emil WD4SCZ, SKCC #556T

The HW-7 is known for its awful receiver, but in all the years I have owned this radio this WES has been the most frustrating time operating it. Conditions were maddening. I spent a third the time last year and did ten times better. Special thanks to Hugh, AE5VB, who made a concerted effort to keep me from being skunked.

From Tony W4FOA, SKCC #641T

Lots of fun, as always. Found the bands to be in pretty good shape. Some very impressive QRP signals. Thanks to all for the Q's and multipliers. Ran my usual 75 watts (Omni 6+. Great to hear and work Bill NT9K again!

From Jerry KD5JHE, SKCC #1976T

First time I've done a WES entirely QRP. That was fun. Worked all the stations I called and did well with the KNWD 2000 at 5w and a G5RV. And worked K9SKC, thanks Werner and thanks for the Q's folks. 73

From Bob VE3AKV, SKCC #5204T

Hello to all.

Not much time for WES this time around, but thanks to all five stations that managed to hear my QRP signal.

Cheers, Bob - VE3AKV/QRP


From George N2AUR, SKCC #5841T

Still recovering from a nasty slip & fall 2 weeks ago - nothing broken - everything hurts! Decided to use my K1 with a circa 1917 12.5 KW spark key - obviously I'm on pain killers! The key is heavier than the K1! Only a few contacts, but fun as always.

N2AUR's soapbox image


From Gene KL7GLL, SKCC #1098T

Very noisy bands around 2000Z, especially 40 meters. Nice mix of Tribunes and new Members. Few Centurions heard. Interesting finding out who was still up and operating after 0400Z. Missed any openings of bands above 20 meters, if they occurred. Propagation appeared fair from what I heard being worked, but seemed harder to get answers to my CQs and received weaker signal reports than usual.

From George K4GM, SKCC #7241T

Was pretty much radioed out after 24 hours of the IARU contest (1900 QSOs)so did not make much of an effort in this WES. Listened to WES, heard a few ops so could not resist participating a bit. Condx here were poor and with all the QRPers in WES, copying stations became problematic. Looking forward to the next WES. Best to all, George K4GM

From Pete W1PNS, SKCC #4853T

Bands were a bit wiggy, but great fun -- including time out to put a new mini key together and christen in the wee hours of Sunday morning (EDT). The photo gives an idea of its size compared with my Junker.

From Joe KD2JC, SKCC #710T

QRP event lots of fun. Wish I had more time. Only 1 QSO on 15 meters. Elecraft K2 &5 watts, HamKey straight key and Vibroplex Champion. Thanks to all that worked me. 73

From Kate K6HTN, SKCC #5405C

Didn't have a lot of time this weekend to play, but I did discover that QRP is hard work! The Q with the guy 5 miles away was pretty easy, but the other one required many fills. But my new (used) GHD bug worked great!

From Ray KJ4LEN, SKCC #6956T

This was the first sprint I operated qrp. It sure was different than running 100W. I only had about 2 hours so S&P turned out to be the best option( made 16 contacts).I even picked up F5DE Bernard in the last 15 min.Thanks for an enjoyable WES and I will see everyone in the SKS. Ray

From Frank W2XYZ, SKCC #4862

Having the IARU HF World Championship contest going at the same time as WES presented a real challenge. It sure got quiet when they went QRT :-)

From JOHN K5ENA, SKCC #3045T

Not the best conditions but made contacts on 40 and 20. Always enjoy our WES.

From Alan KA5VZG, SKCC #6264T

Noisy bands, but lots of fun as expected.

From Matt N3EIN, SKCC #6742T

Today’s conditions required some persistence, but I find completing QSO’s with weak signals satisfying and enjoyed this WES. I was able to work 4 bands, 80 meters opening briefly about 0330Z and 15 meters at 1550Z finding only W5ZR for “one and done”. I was surprised to work Lluis and Bert in Europe on 20 meters given conditions, and then 40 meters came back to life around 2200Z. The path from PA to WA on 20 meters usually opens toward the end of these WES’s and NG7Z came through at the last minute. Thanks Paul. My ears are tired but I had a great time. Thanks everyone!

Matt - N3EIN/Ten-Tec Century 21/G5RV “Lite”/SKCC Key


From Dan KC5GXL, SKCC #647

Another great WES. Just wish the bands cooperated a bit more! Hope to do it again next month.

2 contacts qrp in 2 hours, went to 100w didn't get to work it as long as i wanted to but got in a few qso's and had a good time

From VERN W9HLY, SKCC #6672T

Slow progress but fun just the same.

From Art KB1NHV, SKCC #2775

Operating 100 watts, not QRP. Nice to see 20 meters so active and in good condition.

From Jim K6JF, SKCC #4261T

Despite the S-6 noise level 40m was the most productive band Saturday night. The upper bands were horrible both days. Hoping for better condx next time.

From Joe WS9E, SKCC #3859C

I only found about 15 minutes, this weekend, to operate. I got on Sunday afternoon. I heard nothing on 40 or 15. There were a few signals on 20. I worked Bert, W5ZR and Dave NK1V.

Then it was time to head out for more activities.

See you next time.


From TJ W0EA, SKCC #4593T

Very busy weekend but I managed to get one in on the K2. Got an HW-16 and tried to work a few stations but nobody heard me - Oh well... Next month! 73.

From Bill N0UMP, SKCC #659T

Lots of noise and poor band conditions. Good to hear so many familar calls and new ones. Looking forward to the next sprint. Bill

From Jeff K9JP, SKCC #3008T

Thanks for another fun event! Bert, F6HKA You had the Strongest signal here! Easy 30 dB Plus! I was really surprised

when you came back to my call. 73 to all, Jeff - K9JP #3008T


From ED W7GVE, SKCC #729T

When I could barely hear W5ZR I knew that the band couldnt get much worse--- But hey, working QRP stations under those

condx turned out to be fun... CU next month!! ED


From Peter AK3X, SKCC #7217C

Made a few contacts every now and then as time allowed. Limited to 40M with DSW-40 due to a blown PA in my 20M rig (DSW-20). Hope to have it fixed by next WES. I found condx on 40 to be rather good at the times I was on. I did make a brief attempt at 15M with my MS-15, but only heard W5ZR booming in from LA. Unfortunately, Bert did not hear

my 4 watts. At least I got the thing working! 73 til next month - Peter


From Jon K1NV, SKCC #2609T

Only one hour or so of fun at the end of the WES. Heard VK4TJ but couldn't raise him. All antennas down except tribander and 6M yagi preparatory to move to CA.

From Bill N5RKD, SKCC #7176T

Thunderstorms throughout contest so participation was limited. I used the new ZR Sprinter logger from W5ZR and had lots of problems with it. (One irony: worked W5ZR on 2 bands but new logger claimed that 2nd. contact was a dupe and wouldn't accept it!) Had to score contest by hand at end after patching up ADIF version of log. Called on 10m a few times but no activity. Good to see many old friends in the WES with many taking the QRP challenge. Used ICOM IC7200 at 5W into vertical + 1962 Blue Racer.

From mark NE0S, SKCC #6585T

what fun,being tromped on by iaru contesters-beat up by bad band condx-blasted in the ears with qrn,the only thing missing was being eaten by insects in the blazing heat!

hope everyone had as much fun as I did and thanks to all for pickin out my 25 qso`s as qrp 4w.The rest of the time was qro at 100w and a lot more productive. Had hopes for 6m but only 3 q`s there. 73 all see ya next time Mark NE0S


From Finn WB2UWU, SKCC #1708

Well I made up for my Zero score in the SKSE. And I am sure that this is the first time I ever made 10 QSOs in a 24 hour period. In my early years as novice and advanced I had a lot of CW ragchew QSOs. But never did contests until SKCC.

Looking forward to the next SKCC event.


From Dennis N0UYN, SKCC #5753T

Only had a few hours for WES at the beginning and end. Saturday night, signal reports were pretty good; Sunday, less so. I heard Werner K9SKC/N8BB a couple of times, but not steady enough to work. The best signal was from Bert W5ZR who I worked on 20 and 40 (and on FD with W0RR). Thanks to Len W1LVT for new state VT. Only 7 more for WAS. 73.

From Paul NG7Z, SKCC #802T

Got on for the last hour and I felt like a DX station with all the calls. 73 and see ya'll in the SKS.

From Tom W4CU, SKCC #2733T

Had a great time as always. It was a pleasure to work so many new numbers and so many old friends. Thanks for all the contacts. vy 73 Tom

From Ron WX4RM, SKCC #8064

Enjoyed my first WES. QRP into 4BTV ground mounted vertical with too many radials per XYL. Conditions were tough, Saturday thunderstorms and Sunday S9 noise levels. Thanks to all who heard my little signal. Thanks to HC6EP and F6HKA for having good ears to pull me out of the mud.

From Slim WA0BGV, SKCC #5465T

Seems poor conditions for qrp event. Would think winter months would be a better time for this event. Hard work getting most of my QSOs but in the end I discovered that I enjoyed it.

Missed the WES last month due to a windstorm which took out all my antennas. Just got them all back up hours before this WES.

Thanks to all for a few hours of pleasurable pastime.

From epe HC6EP, SKCC #7163

setup:

Flex-1500, MFJ Antenna tunner, 3 ele yagi, 20mts only worked. temp <12C all the time inside the country house. Dogs barking outside. No permanent internet, just the cell thethered. Camera: The cell's phone one. TS-430s used as base to raise the flex-1500. And condx were not good at all, lot's of static and lack of propagation. Anyway I did the best I could

suggestion: contacts with other continents should be worth more (maybe a x2 multiplier).

And yes, the iaru contest was a big downside, I really dislike those 50+ wpm frenzy calls, this is why I love skcc. But I know we must deal with it.

From Rick K0KEX, SKCC #5220T

This sprint started well, my first contact was K9SKC followed by N2JNZ. Band conditions were rough in the evening on 40 & 80 Sunday morning 20 was good and remained that way here. It was interesting working QRP and figuring out who was able to hear my signal. A new contact, HC6EP on QRP was a nice surprise along with others on QRP. Good to hear old friends and make some new ones. Thanks to everyone for a great time here. 73 CU you next month

From Randy KB4QQJ, SKCC #3508T

Fun WES. Bands seemed in pretty good condition. Made several DX contacts.

Of Course I enjoy the QRP theme. Since the K2 only goes to 40 dB it is a tie for strongest signal. NE0S and KA2FIR both were 40 +.

Rig = Elecraft K2 at 3 to 5 watts output

Antenna = PAR EndFedz at 33 feet. EF-80 and an EF-40/20/10

Keys = Marconi AS-No 300A and a Martin Junior Bug (both circa 1930 rare)

Thanks Bernard, F5DE and Nathan,W4NA for the last seconds contacts!!

From Mike N5JKY, SKCC #85

Thanks to all who heard my QRP signal! 73 de N5JKY

From John VK4TJ, SKCC #4474T

Didn't really give the sprint the time & effort it deserved. Looked like it was going to be a California QSO Party for a while, but 40 mtrs came through for a east & central USA,and my morning short path opening into Europe was playing very well indeed.

From Jack KK0I, SKCC #2370T

Limited time for this event...but as always had good time. Ran QRP and side swiper. Looking forward to future events. Thanks for being out there! 73, jack

From bob K2OGT, SKCC #5266T

forgot abt sprint on sat. so got started late on sun. but condx were vry bad dipoles only at 20 ft so did my best

From John G0RDO, SKCC #2133T

Hardly got on air but enjoyed the 2 QSO's. Thanks to OH7QR / Erkki and YU2VZ / Zoran for the 20m contacts.

100 watts here into a vertical. Bug key by Eddystone.

73, John

From Bernard F5DE, SKCC #6247T

Not more than three hours to play in this WES,

16 QSO realized with all the signals very weak here, coming from 329 to 559, not more.

A good challenge to my ears !

Nice to get some QRP stations (N8AMM, M1RPW, KJ4LEN, KB4QQJ) even a QRPp station : K9SKC for a club bonus !

The DX was John VK4TJ, QSO ending with one of the best reports at 539 !

As usual I used about 50 watts into my old multiband DX-88 Hy-Gain GP. The main key was my Lionel J-36 bug and a Junker pump key when QRS operation needed.

One more time, I enjoyed the event and I am looking for the next one.

See you all for July brag QSO !


From Dean NW2K, SKCC #7330T

5W, matchbox, 80M loop at 30 feet. Great to hear NT9K on the bands. Thanks to Randy, Thomas, Pete, and Gene for all their work on WES.

From Mike VA2NB, SKCC #120C

A very casual sprint for me from my cottage QTH. Nice to work some familliar calls. Station Ten-Tec Argonaut V @ 5W, double-sized G5RV at 50 ft, 1936 Vibroplex Martin Jr Bug. Michael VA2NB / VE3WMB

Thanks for the most enjoyable test on the air. C u in Aug.

From JOHN K4BAI, SKCC #3280

Too tired after 24 hours of IARU HF Contest and a two-hour drive home to do much except sleep. Did get on for one QSO just before 2400Z. See you all next time. 73, John, K4BAI.

From Ken K5KGK, SKCC #7216

I'm very encouraged to know that I can do QRP! I'm trying to get better. Thanks for the patience of W9HLY, K2OGT, and WA0BGV. Also, to N5R??, the QRN from the storms got me before I could get the contact completed. I had my IC-718 running 5 watts into my ground mounted vertical for my favorite J-38. 73 to all!

From Dave W3NP, SKCC #3182T

Only got about an hour or so of actual operating time late Sunday afternoon as my son and his family were in for the weekend. I let them take my Miata out for a cruise and jumped on the radio while they were enjoying their ride. I thought condx were relatively good for the brief time I was on. Made a few on 20, but mostly on 40 both high and low sections of the band. Just worked Ted AB8FJ with his 1 watt Argonaut when the clock ran out. I was using my Ten Tec Argonaut V at 5 watts into the 130' CF Zepp at 45' fed with 600 ohm open wire through the Viking KW matchbox. Key for all 15 qso's was the Vibroplex Blue Racer Deluxe from 1963. The photo was taken just after the event ended. Thanks to all who pulled me out of the noise. Looking forward to the next one as always...Dave - W3NP

From Larry K0LWV, SKCC #3571

This sprint allowed me to see how my newly constructed 20m 3half wave in phase antenna works, also ARCI/ARRL contests over the weekend helped too. It works great except it beams north/south & from Missouri there isn't much in that direction except empty parts of the Pacific Ocean and Bering Sea. I had to use the 40m vee to fill in other directions.

I heard lots of stations but they couldn't hear me, Either my antenna are more sensitive or the little IC 718 is.

I would have liked to see a little more activity.


From Erkki OH7QR, SKCC #6379C

Could hear stations in Central and South Europe working with US but nothing from other side of the Pond heard here. I was lucky to get 4 QSOs with my old Heathkit HW-9 on 80M (2 QSO with members: OH6DC and OH5HNI). Other QSOs were on 20M. Many thanks for the QSOs and hpe cu in August. 73 de Erkki

From Joe W1HFF, SKCC #6309

Conditions were bad here but managed a few contacts toward the end of the sprint, all on 40. Thanks to all.

From Wes W1LIC, SKCC #1142T

It was good to make some contacts even though conditions were poor. I had intended to run 5 watts, but I just didn't have the patience for it with conditions the way they were, so I ran my usual 100 watts except for one 2-way QRP contact with AC2C on 40. There was some nice E-skip on 6 meters Sunday morning. I made about 20 contacts on 50.090 but only one was an SKCC member. Wish more SKCC'ers would get on 6!

Great fun can't wait until the next sprint. I worked some great ops, thank you to all.

From Werner K9SKC, SKCC #5433T

Had a blast working this event as K9SKC, not quite sure how to work myself for a bonus but tried a few times. Had a bit of worry trying to work the BB boys in France but Bert and Bernard pulled me through late Sunday, many thanks guy's. Enjoyed it allot and hope I got most all f you that tried, it was tough at times but very rewarding also. It is always a pleasure to get together with so many friends on a hot dry summer day, maybe enjoy a cold one sometime, eh?

Elecraft K3 set at 900mw and 40 meters had a dipole, 20 3 el yagi.

From Lluis EA3NO, SKCC #6653T

Very weak signals in this wes, little time in the contest,

Bad propagation, Tnx to all for your patience.73 de Lluis


From Phil KB0ETU, SKCC #4542T

Those IARU fellows are the most rude operators! Plus the bands were not very good from this QTH. However, I did better than last month and it was fun - as usual.

From Wes KC9TNH, SKCC #7698

First WES! (before I thought people were just CQ'ng for people named like me. hihi)

Had a blast! and learned alot and speed (including copy) even increased a bit by 2350Z. Great training tool; everyone should do one to say they did it. Thanks SKCC.


From Barry NF1O, SKCC #164T

One of my to rare forays into WES.

It was fun. K3 and Baumuster Key


From Kieth W0IS, SKCC #2048T

Tuff condx's for running qrp but fun and rewarding to make a few contacts. My highlight was working W1LIC in ME and then 4 minutes later working W6ZX in CA, coast to coast 20 meters at less than 1 watt during the 1300z hour. Good times, 72 Kieth wi0s 2048t

From BRAD N5LUL, SKCC #3779C

Didn't have a huge score... but that's not the point. This is an enjoyable way to pass the time during the weekend.

From Ron AC2C, SKCC #2748T

Great WES and a lot of fun. I just wish that I had more time to put into it.

From Butch KD5RSS, SKCC #1910T

I was disapointed in my score, conditions not in my favor, but any "Q" is better than none. There is always a next time to look forward to and I'll be ready to go again. A salute to all SKCC members, best 73 and keep pounding brass my brothers and sisters. You gotta love this "hobby"!

From Stan ZL2BLQ, SKCC #4356T

Was also battling Storm conditions torrential rain 145 KMPH wind gusts which kept turning my beam

From Drew KB9FKO, SKCC #NONE

Time spent in this contest was very enjoyable and great practice. Many thanks to the ops on the other end.

From Bill K8WSN, SKCC #4986T

This was my first attempt to use a bug during WES. Very tiring... A few hours was more than enough for me. Hope I'll do better next time. 73 and TNX to all.

From Dan W9DLN, SKCC #3635T

My first QRP entry for WES! In the spirit of minimalism I wanted to get the best score for one contact. Rig was all the way down for power and Werner boomed in with his less than watt signal. The contact was 40M 0200Z. That's my log.

I think 51 is a record for one contact in the last year or so of WES entries. It may tie VE7TBG in April if the math is correct. Normally the best score for one QSO 36 if the special station is a T.

Looking forward to next WES. See you then... Dan


From Dave` NE5DL, SKCC #5081T

Always WES fun and only a short operating time. Used Bert's ZRSprinter had some problems and lost about 10 contacts. Score might have doubled ... ho hum.

From Jerry K9PMV, SKCC #1438C

Busy weekend here. Just had time for a few.

73 to all


From John KJ0P, SKCC #7473

TNX for the patient SKCC members QSOing for me. Appreciate the accomodation.

From Jerry K2PAY, SKCC #4304T

The Sprints are not the same since...

From Adam N0SSS, SKCC #5770T

Great to play in the wes game once again! Old friends and new friends, well met! Under an old oak by a river, I listened to your melodic fists, the sound of waves lapping the shore, and birds singing their lore. A more peaceful and enjoyable event, I cannot imagine.

For this event, I excitedly used my 2 lb qrp station, which i just finished building for a hiking trip.

BCNU FB OPS.
