Soapbox


From Catalin YO3FVR, SKCC #5909

Sorry, I use in he QSOs ROU instead ROM for QTH ! I will repair the mistake next time ! Thank you all and best 73!

From Bert W5ZR, SKCC #2931T

Conditions were very poor. 20M was the only band. Thanks to all who heard me.

From Willy OE3WYC, SKCC #8326

20m was in a bad shape, on 40m it was QRM, so this time I made only a few QSOs on 80m. Actually I had more non SKSE contacts than "contest" QSOs ;-) 73, willy

From Thomas M0TRN, SKCC #7344C

The worst conditions yet for an SKSE, at least from my QTH. I was late to start, arriving home from work only at 20:15, but even then most of the time was spent calling CQ into thin air or searching for other signals.

For the first half hour I heard nothing at all on 20m, but on 40m was YO3FVR with a great 549 signal from his 5 watts, Erkki OH7QR with 579 (always strong!) and Bernard F5DE who I just about managed to copy over the QRN with 549.

Then 20m seemed to open up to a few select spots in the US, and I worked Tom W4TMW and Tony W4FOA in rapid succession. I also heard Larry W9CC and tried calling him several times, but he didn't hear me, near the end he made a valiant attempt to copy me and got "TRN" but couldn't get the rest, although he was 419 for me.

I also got KB1VAV on 40m, a US DX station on 40m during the SKSE was a first for me, as 40m is rarely open this early.

This time unfortunately I didn't manage to work Finn WB2UWU's QRP station, a bit disappointing since it has kind of become a regular event, but hardly surprising in those bad conditions...

I should have probably spent more time on 40m but I had heavy QRM there! Anyway, thanks for a nice challenging sprint. 73!


From Bernard F5DE, SKCC #6247T

This SKSE was another pleasant event.

Not a very good propagation, but always a pleasure to pick up the signals from the noise !

One new SKCC number for me tonight : HA4AA (#8011).

See you all soon during SKSE, WES and ordinary brag QSO !


From Eldon W0SZV, SKCC #4999T

cold and rain today, bands dead for dx for me. got into a good rag chew with Tim"k0fl" nr 163 and then sprint was over. Had a good time looking forward to the next one.

From Jon K1NV, SKCC #2609T

I hope the DX stations had a good sprint. Except for ZL2BLQ/ZL2SWR, nothing was worked or even heard at my QTH. I suspect the sun was causing poor DX conditions. A couple of stateside QSO's were made, one on 20M and two on 10M. Nothing was heard on 15M.

I gave up at 2100Z due to nothing further being heard and the shack temperature dropping below 50 deg.F. My TS-940S doesn't like the cold and the VCO was acting up.

I did have a nice QSO with W9GV, John, in my old hometown of Madison, WI. I'll drop you a card, John.


From Slim WA0BGV, SKCC #5465T

Grampa (me) out of pocket for mosyt of the time picking up grandkids from school. Still fun to participate for the last few minutes. de Slim

From Larry W9CC, SKCC #469T

I tried hard to pull out the last station at the very end of the contest, but just couldn't do it. Sorry. I'll grab you next time for sure. Conditions were not as good as I hoped they would be. Next month should be better! 73 guys and gals.

From mark KI0I/P, SKCC #6585T

What a surprise after the past few weeks of great condx on 10-15 and 20 to hear the bands so flat today!I finally wrked F5DE on 20m(thanks Bernard!) for a eu qso in the last 15mins and then my neighbor Slim(WA0BGV) in MO..One contact made on 15m w/CA , tnx WA6RIC Rick.. Was operating from my country QTH where no powerline noise is heard ,but the antennas are wire/no beam YET hihi..Icom 706/100w to a half square on 20m and 80-40 Inv Vee for other bands..Thanks all and hope to be able to wrk another SKSE soon 73 Mark KI0I/0

From Eric VA3AMX, SKCC #8253

Terrible propagation - bands were dead and signals were fading dramatically. But ... I had fun. 72 Eric

From Rob Thomson G4LMW, SKCC #4454T

Didn't hear too many stations. A pity that 20m was closed

From Alex PA1FOX, SKCC #8265

I thought these things only happened on VHF: Just as you have set up a nice new yagi, the tropo raises sky high and you think you've done a wonderful job building this superb beam. Until a few days later.

This SKS-E was similar to me. I finally was able to setup the ZS6BKW instead of my simple endfed wire. I tested the tuner at sundawn and was ready for the sprint.

But then, at 20:00 UTC, was there a loose contact or so?

40m was dead, beacons normally S9 hardly audible. Upper bands the same. Only 80 meters seemed fine, so the antenna should be ok. I managed to work Bernard and Andrea on 40m but it was a tough job. On 80m it seemed fine and the band was crowdy. Limited score this time, but that's the same for most of us.

Oh, and by the way, beacons on 40m were up and over S9 the morning after. Guess the sun had a good timing for an eruption this sprint....


From Ad PA2PCH, SKCC #5217

Very bad dx conditions and even Europe was very bad.

From Feco HA8KW, SKCC #3447T

Very awful condx made me a bit disappointed but as always it was fun. Several time checked 20m and 15m but no any signal was heard in the whole spectrum of those bands... 40m was extremely noisy this might be the reason this time I could not hear e.g. YO3FVR. Exceptional proportion, 15 of total 18 contact were made on 80m... I hope next time it must be just better :-) Attached is my logfile. 73, Feco

From Joe KD2JC, SKCC #710T

Conditions very poor. Add to that I could only operate 1 hour, Grandson had to go to football practice. 10 meters dead, only two Qs on 15, the rest on 20 meters. Thanks to all and 73

From Dean NW2K, SKCC #7330T

Tough conditions, but a fun SKSE. Thanks to all for QSOs. 75W, matchbox, 80M loop at 30 feet.

From Erkki OH7QR, SKCC #6379T

Thanks for the QSOs. Poor condx this time - on 20M I heard nothing. 73 de Erkki

From Timo OH5FNI, SKCC #6378C

tnx for qsos, 73 de Timo

From Enric EA3VN, SKCC #7933

Really bad conditions but anyway was fun and ocasion to learn a bit more. Thanks to all de Enric

From Tom W4TMW, SKCC #6184T

Another interesting SKSE and I only operated for about an hour. Here in Georgia the bands were not open at the beginning but eventually started cooking pretty well.Never did hear any DX stations to my West or N.West.

Station: K2/100 @90W, 3el yagi and OCFD, homebrew st key and homebrew magnetic bug. Sure enjoyed the action and tnx for all the contacts.


From PORTIE F6FWF, SKCC #8080
