From BOB AA6AC, SKCC #6276T

Chose SWL conditions at my antenna POOR. Saturday wall to wall contesters. Found WES +/- 14.114 mhz mostly. Sunday fewer contesters. WES 15 and 20 meters around .050's. MY

15 and 20 mtrs fizzled out about 1900Z Sunday. Only herd

two colony stations. Very few east of Mississippi River.

Most signals RST 519 weak but able to copy. SURE WILL BE

NICE WHEN BANDS RETURN TO GOOD. AA6AC Bob SOCAL #6276T

Colony stations NC1M (MA),KV4RH (SC). One DX V31JP (BLZ)


From Tom W4CU, SKCC #2733T

I was lucky to work quite a few QRP stations. Two of them moved the meter on my Kenwood to S9 and Werner (N8BB) with 1 watt earned an S8 on the meter - remarkable! Thanks for the contacts vy 73 Tom

From Scott NV8P, SKCC #11365

1st WES! AND QRP with my new B-day present - FT-817nd, what a blast!

Back on the air after being flooded on the 29th of April. Was using K-2 with G5RV up about 35 feet. Not many contacts but it''s nice to be back. Hope to hear some of you for the NAQCC sprint coming up shortly. 72, Phil

From Steve AI9IN, SKCC #8759T

Just played a little on 20 m on Sunday. Propagation didn't seem that good on 20 m, but got a couple of QSOs in. Special thanks to K5YQF for giving my 5 watts another chance!

From Ed K1EDG, SKCC #9625S

Thank you everyone for the fun!!!

From Chris KJ4RGH, SKCC #12029

Conditions were tough at times. Thanks to everyone for pulling my QRP signal out of the noise.

From Dave WD8KRV, SKCC #3746C

Thanks again to everyone who heard and worked my peashooter signal. In honor of the 100th anniversary of the start of World War I, I was using a WWI-era J-2 straight key. TU es 72/73, Dave

From Charlie/2 KB1UOH, SKCC #7560T

I enjoyed another WES using QRP. It was hard to be heard with the other contest going on. Thanks to all who dug me out of the QRN.

From John G0RDO, SKCC #2133T

Great fun WES but awful conditions, I could hear very few SKCC stations. I used to have a go at quite a few CW contests, but now prefer the SKCC ones, as they are not really contests are they HI. It is nice to hear about the rigs and most importantly, what morse keys

are being used ! Rig here TS-440SAT, 100 watts to a Cushcraft MA6V vertical up 20ft. Key used this weekend is a mystery British key with a unique design. The arm surrounds a single central pillar, the base measures 4 & 1/4" by 2 & 7/8" and is 5/8" thick in bakelite. Anyone seen this style

of key before ? I would love to know the maker etc..

From John K0FTC/WY, SKCC #2227S

Worked from a hill top about 10 miles east of Laramie WY that N0TA and I worked for Field Day in 2013. Very wet and rainy the night before and Saturday morning of getting there. Mosquito's were thick and had there own field day for a while till I got coated with bug spray. IARU was tough to compete against in finding SKCC contacts, and I missed having the K3UK page for finding out where folks were finding a place to call. I also worked IARU casually looking for DX with paddle (100 IARU QSOs). I used a Czech military key many of us have, and use a piece of plexiglass with a metal strip attached and magnets to hold the key. But this time I turned the key around (picture shows this) and placed the palm of my hand over the shell of the key, with the arm extend away from my hand and operated it backwards that way for WES - and found it very comfortable and could hold the key much more solidly (give it a try if you have one of these). Had a lot of fun, and may go back up for August's WES.

Had only time to play on Saturday morning when band conditions were not the best with only 3 QSOs in an hour and a half - thanks John/K0FTC/WY for one of those 3!; and, Sunday between thunderstorms. Fun all the same. See you all in SKS. Best, Don KF7DS

From Bill WA4FAT, SKCC #11062T

Thanks to this weekend’s WES, I managed to acquire enough numbers for my TX4 … and yet I've still not worked a station from Delaware. I'm beginning to suspect that elusive state will vie for SKCC state #50 honors for me, right alongside Hawaii and Alaska. I even tried to find a Delaware CW traffic net in hopes of locating an SKCC member there and a chance to complete a sweep of the bonus states, only to discover that Delaware apparently doesn't even have a CW traffic net!

And I once more confirmed the theory of cancelling power nodes when I tried to radiate on 20 with a 40 Meter dipole. My tuner was so not able to handle the mismatch that light bulbs began to spontaneously glow throughout my home when I keyed. I finally resorted to QRP power levels on 20 and did managed to work a few stations. My undying gratitude to those of you with golden ears and the patience of Job. 15 Meter was only marginally better. While I was able to tune the 40 dipole there just fine, I struggled to pull signals from the noise. There were a few Goliaths, however. NP3CW and V31JP were pounding in, and NC1M must have had a pipeline into Alabama. I swear I could have copied him with my transceiver powered down. For just a fleeting moment, I contemplated calling him with no antenna at all, but then thought better of it.

40 was once again the stalwart band for me. I hit the SKCC segment above 7100 kHz while the IARU mayhem was raging, and had good success there. I took time out on a couple of occasions to listen to my friend Randy, KC9W, as he worked ‘em right and left. It seemed his every CQ was answered, and I only shook my head in amazement … as I know he runs just 5 watts. Same for my pal Rodney Ross, N4RAY. He runs 1 watt in these events and I heard others working him in abundance.

Thanks to all the fine CW ops for making this month’s WES a blast for me, and for reminding me once more why Amateur Radio truly is the world’s greatest hobby.

From Dave W3NP, SKCC #3182S

Band conditions continue to be poor but there seemed to be a lot of activity for the WES. Didn't work many stations out west and those I heard were weak. Did manage to log Ed W7GVE but our sig reports were way down from usual. I operated hit and miss over the weekend. I worked quite a few of the newer members - Keith NA8Z nr 12523 as well as Sam WA9VBG who was waiting on his new SKCC nr of 12569, to name just a few.

Of course the ARRL instigated contest (play with us or go cower somewhere up the band) took some of the fun out of the sprint. Yes it's true, I hate contests!

I finally snagged Jim W1WIU in RI just 20 minutes before the end of the sprint for a clean sweep of the 13 colonies.

Rig for the event was my K3 and the keys this time: Vibroplex Anniversary Edition bug and the Navy Flameproof.

From Ron W6FPS, SKCC #2126T

To start out I missed the June WES, I had the wrong date marked on the calander.

This month found me constructing a new patio cover (maybe it will be a mounting point for a new vertical, pending approval of the XYL) and attending a summer concert in the park. Little time left for getting on the air. Once the other contest was over I made a few contacts and picked up a couple of colonies, thanks to Hugh NC1M and Anthony K3NG.

I had a great time, as short as it was.

73, Ron


From Bill K8WSN, SKCC #4986S

I enjoyed working both the IARU contest and the WES this weekend. TNX for the QSOs!

From Alan KA5VZG, SKCC #6264S

Saturday, band conditions were terrible, Sunday was a little better :-) still fun

From Pat AC0SR, SKCC #7072

Only got to work the WES for about an hour on Sunday. Thanks to Tim K9TM and Tom W4CU for pulling my 1/2 watt out of the noise.

From Gene KL7GLL, SKCC #1098T

Just time for a few quick contacts Saturday morning before .aking off for a weekend at the lake.

From WES W1LIC, SKCC #1142T

Not too bad considering the contest going on AND the frequent summer thunderstorms here in Florida. I managed to get 9 of the 13 colonies. Also picked up 14 more contacts towards my Senator Award. In addition, worked a few members for the first time which always is nice. Most were on 40 and 20, but once each on 15 and 10. None on 6 this time even though the band was open some. Rig: TS-480SAT at 100w to Hustler mobile antenna and Vibroplex straight key.

From Joe KD2JC, SKCC #710S

Was on vacation upstate NY. Only one QSO, thanks AF4K Bry. Ran my HB-1B at 4 watts to a 20 meter hamstick. I found upon arrival my 40 meter stick was not electrically sound. See you next month. 73

From Mike NO8C, SKCC #7239T

Fantastic! I have to admit these sprints are addicting as all get out. Best 73's to all from Miller City, Ohio. de NO8C

From Joe W1HFF, SKCC #6309T

Poor conditions here. Didn't hear too much activity. Nice theme. Had a good time. 73 to all.

From ED W7GVE, SKCC #729T

I did not have much time for this... But catch you later for a better qso... 73./ED..W7GVE

From Ben KV4RH, SKCC #11478C

Enjoyed my second WES. Actually only got to participate because I took a nasty fall on the river while fly fishing on Friday, and had to cut the trip short due to a back problem. The operating chair was actually the most comfortable place in the house, so it worked out until the meds kicked in. The Czech key and the TS-520 just kept up perfectly. Also racked up enough contacts to finish out my C and move on to T. Good fun!

From GARY KF7WNS, SKCC #9895

Tough bands for QRP this time. The stations I usually count on couldn't hear me, so it took alot of work. As always lots of fun and many thanks to those who made the effort to copy my 5W. 72, Gary

From George KH6OZ, SKCC #3975T

Not many stations copying me this week.

Thanks for the QSOs.

From Jose VE3DTI, SKCC #7020C

With the IARU HF Championship and the 3-character "1" WRTC stations raging in the bands I was only able to log one WES QSO. Thank you Hugh NC1M for the QSO and for MA. (KX3 at 5W with 43 Ft. Vert. and PPK key).73 de Jose VE3DTI SKCC 7020T.

From David KK4PWE, SKCC #11010

This was my first WES, and, as a new ham of about a year and a half, I've managed to reach a goal of learning cw. I'm delighted to be a part of SKCC, and feel this is a very good group of individuals. However, the bands didn't appear to be very good, I fought my way through. 73! de KK4PWE

From Joey W4SHL, SKCC #1800

Thank you to everyone for all the contacts with the Shelby County Amateur Radio Club station-W4SHL. Hope to operate again as soon as W4SHL as a new Centurion. 73 Joey-WN4AT

From Joe K0IVK, SKCC #1436T

Used the WES to build my "T" & "S" total for Senator award.

From Mark WB0MM, SKCC #9855T

WES, my favorite sprint. Little radio time, but I managed to make a few contacts.

From JOHN K8BAT, SKCC #10395T

The challenge of the WES is to try to get consistent results in inconsistent conditions. Other contests can clog the bands (like Saturday), QRM or QRN can be a problem, and sun spots and band openings can greatly determine your success. Weather may also affect attendance as many may want to enjoy other outside activities. Each WES is unique, and you need patience and determination to be successful. But you should also have fun! This month I had 41 QSO's in 25 states and added a few more to my TX5. So I was extremely pleased with the result; and yes it was fun. See you next month!

From Jack KK0I, SKCC #2370S

Out of state on vacation...returned to have a little fun with the WES. Managed to snag contacts on all the bands except 80 meters. Used the Eagle and my K4VIZ right angle bug. Thanks Curt (WA2JSG) for the lone contact on 10 meters. Thanks for a great time as always. Catch you all down the log! :)

From Tim K9TM, SKCC #12335

Second WES and another good time. Since the last WES I picked up a J-38 of my own (last month was a loaner from N8KR) and one of the Czech keys (that arrived Saturday morning). Conditions were pretty good when I was on and activity was pretty good on 40m and 20m... not so much anywhere else. Being ambidextrous really helps in these longer events. Someday I'll be able to spend more time on the radio but until then WES and 2hr sprints will keep the radio juices flowing.

From Jim W1WIU, SKCC #486T

Always a fun event. This makes 2 13 Original Colonies events in 2 weeks. Operated as K2C (RI)last week.

Thanks to all who organized the event and do all the behind the scenes work. 73, Jim


From Steve W1SFR, SKCC #9103T

I''m working towards S and with this WES am just a few away from 200 QSO''s.

From Greg WA1VIL, SKCC #443T

Lost some good operating time to nice weather and world cup fever! Thanks to all who dug out my 5 W signal. 73 and see you next time!

From Ray KJ4LEN, SKCC #6956

Only on for a little while. Only got 2 colonies. Had fun though. See everyone next time. Ray

From Frank W4HAY, SKCC #678T

Apologies to all those I kept asking for repeats from. I was fighting an intermittently failing receiver in my new K3 -- which is going back to the factory tomorrow for the 2nd time.

I still had a great time on 80, 40, and 20 using a Nye Viking Navy knob key.

Looking forward to SKS.


From Hugh NC1M, SKCC #11058S

An unusually free summer weekend permitted 22 hours of WES operation. Conditions were generally poor, with competition from IARU splitting us up: some braving the low end of the band while others took refuge up higher. Propagation here was generally very lousy on Saturday. In spite of all this, I worked the largest number of QRP and QRPp stations that I have ever worked. (As for me, I confess to firing up the Alpha for this one ;-) 15 meters was surprisingly productive on Sunday afternoon, and 80 meters was surprisingly good on Saturday night. Thanks to all who participated and who worked me!! Special thanks to all the QRP stations whom I asked for so many repeat tries until we finally connected through the QRM/QRN.

From David VE3KLX, SKCC #10495

I was only able to participate for a few hours, but managed to snag a few new SKCC numbers, work a few new states and generally have fun in an SKCC event.

I also managed to try out my brand new SKCC Straight Key from LNR Precision. What an absolutely beautiful straight key and the feel and balance is so great, it is by far my favorite key!

Special TNX ES 73 to the WES organizers and all my fellow SKCCers.


From Dave KI8JY, SKCC #10751C

Tough conditions in SW Ohio yielded contacts only on 20m and 40m this time - 73, Dave

From Phil N1DN, SKCC #6482T

This was an interesting radio weekend. I started off bouncing back and forth between the IARU contest and WES. I soon realized that WES was a lot more fun! Some highlights: I was watch the waterfall on 6m and spotted a CW signal - who else but Mark KO1U! Sunday afternoon I decided to work a little back yard QRP using my FT817 and American Morse Straight Key. Thanks to Julio, NP3CW and Tony, W4FOA for answering my 2.5 watt signal. As always, thanks to everyone for making this one of the best events each month. 73, Phil

Didn't work much since the WX was so nice. I attached a picture of my latest flee market buy. Stainless steel J-38 mounted on a polished copper base plate. I use this at my summer home in NH.

From JOHN K8JD, SKCC #1395T

With the DX contest going and lightning noise on the lower bands, I did not do very much time operating this sprintathon ! Also found my 40M loop had a big tree limb fall on it and the feedpoint was about 3 ft above the ground !

From BILL K6KQV, SKCC #2626T

Rough going while IARU contest was on, but not bad on Sunday.

From TOM WB7EUX, SKCC #9833T

Just a few contacts this month -- too HOT in the shack! Enjoyed the time though.

From Jerry KZ5OM, SKCC #10415S

Mostly Hunt-M-Pounce type of ops.

From Bob WL7WH, SKCC #2940S

Not very good condx this weekend, but glad to hear several qrp stations coming thru the qsb with good signals..

As usual lots of fun...look forward to next month!!!!


From CURT KB5JO, SKCC #2027T

Rough conditions

From Jim AF3Z, SKCC #3034T

My sending reached new heights during this WES! Thanks to an injured disc in my back, sitting to operate was uncomfortable on Saturday. I almost decided not operate on Sunday because of it… but, I operated standing up instead! Note in the picture the Navy key, paper, and pen on the top shelf of the desk. My operation became high-keyed and low-tech-logged (it was beneath me to log on the computer). All in all, it was a pleasure -- 50 watts into a fan dipole at about 15 feet at the center. Thanks & 73! Jim - AF3Z

From Mitch AD0HJ, SKCC #12275

I had alot of fun in my second SKCC Weekend Sprintathon. The highlight of my weekend was working WL7WH in Alaska and VK4TJ in Australia within minutes of each other. See you next month! 73, Mitch.

From Carl N5XE, SKCC #6307T

IARU Contest this time...didn't devote much effort to the WES.

From Mark W8BBQ, SKCC #9115T

After cleaning up from a tornado that landed on our street last week, the WES was a welcome mini vacation. Thanks to all...it was fun!

From Tom K9DAC, SKCC #10148T

Not much time to operate this weekend, but always fun and grabbed a couple of more new C/T/S for my Tx8

From Tom KG8Y, SKCC #7408T

Had a great time. Finally made T!

From JOE W6JWP, SKCC #7018

Another fun WES. Thanks to all the ops for being so patient with me.

From Ed N7EDK, SKCC #7534T

Worked this WES portable from UT while visiting my two girls here.

Setup on the front porch of daughter #2 in Spanish Fork, UT.

Only had the KX1 with this trip, used my 31' EFHW as a sloper to a 18' high fishing pole.

Used my new Palm Radio Pico Paddles turned sideways as a SK. I was also doing some SOTA chasing while here, so the Pico Paddles come in handy.

Made a total of four contacts, but the best one was with John, VK4TJ in Australia on 3 watts !!

As always, had fun and look forward to next month....72/73 !

From Noel W5KDM, SKCC #4812T

I offer a special thank you to all who give of their time and talent to SKCC events. I apologize to the two stations I duped. If there had been a cw coach in my shack, I'm sure he would have said "Noel, get your head in the game"!

From Dave W0YZZ, SKCC #5519T

This was a great WES...It started off poorly with another contest on but late Saturday and Sunday was super. First time that I broke 100. I liked the 13 colony bonus. Missed RI though...CU next time Dave

From BERT K6CSL, SKCC #4486

I found these 4 SKCC stations in the course of operating the IARU-HF Contest. It's always nice to run across SKCC member stations, even if I don't have the time to make a full effort in WES. TNX to Hugh, NC1M-1105S in MA, Tony, W4FOA-0641T in GA, Gary, KF7WNS-9895T in OR and Tom, W4CU-2733T in FL for the QSO's. Bert, K6CSL

From Allen KA5TJS, SKCC #5172T

Saturday was ruff with the contest going on but found a few up around the 7.114, 14.114 areas. Got 5 of the 13. Had a great time. Lots of fun. All QRP with the 7410 and dipole. See you next month.

From Kerry WD5ABC, SKCC #12

I'm finally in my new QTH and got the dipole back up to 30' instead of 12' at my former rent house so I switched back to QRP. I didn't have a lot of time but made a few good contacts, it's nice to be back on the air. I put the antenna up hastily Saturday morning so I'll make it more permanent soon but it got me on the air!

From Larry AH6AX, SKCC #11165S

Lots of fun. Thanks to W1PID (Jim) for NH... and a 13 Colony sweep.

From RON NT8P, SKCC #7312T

Started in my screen house HB1B 5W battery and longwire. Got 3 qso's. Moved inside w 5w and better ant for 8 more and called it quits. Lots of static, big contesters. Rough for qrp. But learn something new each time so was a good weekend. Hope to do better next month. K0FTC/WY Very familiar with Laramie. There was 17" of snow May 12,by the river Ron

From Ted K4UFT, SKCC #4289T

Saw that Saturday was a lost cause with all the computerized CW contesters so I didn't get on 'til late Sunday. I often wonder how many of these contesters could copy their own call sign without a computer to decode the CW.

I always look forward to our "contests that aren't really contests." Many thanks to those who put them together each month. I always look forward to them.

40 Meters ~ FT950 @20 Watts to vertical ~ J-37 key


From Julio NP3CW, SKCC #2632T

On Saturday worked only 10 QSO's. All frequencies congested

due to IARU contest. Worked 15 and 20 meters bands only.

Tnx to all the stations that called me.

Only few DX stations worked; EA,LU,VE and Pablo KP4SJ.

Only missed RI and NC for a sweep with the colonies.

Never heard France or England stations.

A lot of fun with CW operators and many good signals from QRP operators.

Good luck to all. de Julio NP3CW


From Al KC4ZA, SKCC #4421T

Entertained the grandkids for the weekend so only managed a couple of hours operating time; however, I did log a few new SKCC members, which is always a pleasure.

From JACK AC6FU, SKCC #6477T

IARU dominated Saturday and little time to spend on Sunday but 20M provided a few Qs! Thanks, all!

From GB KG4GVL, SKCC #6161

Didn't have time to get setup at work, so I stuck to 20m at home with 100w. Several very loud stations! got 7 QSOs in under an hour.

From JOHN K5ENA, SKCC #3045T

Enjoyed the WES. 40 and 20 were good.

From STEVE K2DEP, SKCC #9273T

Loads of fun except for the IARU contest going on. Being stuck pretty much on 40M didn't help either with band condx such as they were. Thanks to W3MLK DE and W1WIU RI who came through in a clutch to get all 13 colonies. Whew! Enjoyed working 4 non-members and 44 non C,T,or S. Nice to see a lot of participation. Such a fun Club and fun events. The only stress is what you create yourself. Hope to see you all again. The brass key in the photo is a SCHURR mahogany hand key.

Much enjoyed getting my feet wet first time in WES.

From Harold VE5BCS, SKCC #3946T

Boy it was hard to get a dit in edgwise on sat. sun was better and more fun.

From Dave WV8P, SKCC #7922C

The usual, great weather so lots of outside work to be done. Of course, work in the yard and play a little, work again and again play a little. Working on the ocf dipole, moved it from 30ft. to 65ft. Thanks to all those that heard my signal.

From RANDY KC9W, SKCC #5277T

ANOTHER FUN WEEKEND. SATURDAY WAS ROUGH DEALING WITH THE IARU CONTEST BIG GUN BULLIES. N4RAY SOUNDED GREAT HERE WITH HIS 1 WATT STATION. BILL WA4FAT SENDS SUCH PRETTY CW WITH HIS OLD BUNNELL KEY. WAS GOOD TO HEAR SO MANY QRP STATIONS. DO WE HAVE ANY MEMBERS FROM DELAWARE?

From Goody K3NG, SKCC #12482

This was my first SKCC event and I had a ball! Many thanks to those who welcomed me on the air. I never thought doing an operating event with a straight key could be so much fun. I can't wait to do this again. 73 Goody K3NG

From Joe K4NVJ, SKCC #393T

Had fun.

From Drew AF2Z, SKCC #2082S

Condx were only fair. A lot of guys moved up to 14114 due to the IARU contest. I only got one SKCC DX contact for the entire WES. RBN said my sigs were hitting N. Europe pretty well but I found no SKCCers there except for Mick in Norway, LI5SAA. Of the 13 colonies: missed DE and RI. All of my QSOs were on 20 and 40, except one on 15. My rig: K3 running 100 watts to an indoor cobweb antenna. Key: Junker straight key, 100-percent, start to finish.

From Peter AK3X, SKCC #7217T

Not much time as usual... mostly at Saturday evening event for me.

DSW-40 at 3 watts...Champion Bug and Navy FlameProof. Fun

From Phil WA0PZA, SKCC #2189

I love these sprints sponsored by SKCC! They are very enjoyable, a great way to improve CW skills, and provide the additional pleasure of meeting friendly operators!

From Steve AA5TB, SKCC #110

I was using my ~1960 E.F. Johnson Speed-X bug. Its slowest setting is 22 WPM but I used the "dah" side as a straight key when needed. I've been using the bug almost exclusively this year, even for Field Day and other contests to try and master the beast. It is very addicting.

From Tony W6VFW, SKCC #9598T

It had been a while since I participated, so decided to go out to the park and participate as QRP this time. I didn't make many contacts, but had fun making the ones I did. 73 de Tony

Only able to work a few short gaps. 72 to all, Ray #5169s

From TOM KD2FNA, SKCC #12120

Really enjoy working the SKCC members. Thanks to SKCC and all the guys/gals who make this a great event. I only had 7 colonies... and I'm right in the middle (NJ)! I was never very good at geography/history.
