Soapbox


From Bert W5ZR, SKCC #2931T

Had local thunderstorms and much QRN. Sorry for those who called that I could not hear. Tnx to all for a good sprint!

From Rick WU1V, SKCC #9293

Vy bad bd condx on 20M. Only got 2 DX QSOs in the 2nd hour and felt lucky with that much. It was fun, but frustrating!

From Dean NW2K, SKCC #7330T

Thanks to all and see you next time. 90W, inverted V dipole at 50'.

From Thomas MQ0TRN, SKCC #7344T

Didn't do very well in terms of QSO's this time, I had a toothache and fell asleep after coming home from work, only woke up 20 minutes into the sprint and then had to mess a bit with wires to use all my different keys!

But I did manage to have a few QSO's on 20m in spite of the bad band conditions, including some DX: Mark KO1U, who I think was running QRP, Bert W5ZR, and Walt LW3EX (best DX and also strongest of the DX stations), and Gisli TF3G. So all in all not a bad result.

I also managed to get all of the keys I own on the air during this sprint! From right to left (in the order used in the sprint):

- My Begali Sculpture wired as a side swiper (strange feeling using it like this, but actually worked fairly well)

- My Czech Army key (normally mostly used portable QRP)

- My Vibroplex Champion bug

- My "Ron's Red Racer" bug made by G3YUH

- My 1970's Kent key

- My PS213 masterpiece by G0NVT

From PSARC N1ME, SKCC #9332

First SKCC event for the club. Got out my Dad's old J36 WWII bug and used it for one QSO. It hasn't been used for many years. I don't really like a bug anymore. Also one QSO was made using the dah paddle on my Bencher with the rig set for semi-auto keying. Glad to put the club call/number on the air. Operator: W1LIC

From Gisli TF3G, SKCC #7664

I used 4 keyes. 2 were OK but 2 were awful.

From Feco HA8KW, SKCC #3447T

Very interesting conditions! First LW3EX on 15m but nothing else could be heard. Then N1ME came in but did not answer. Several more minutes on 15m without hearing anything. Next one 20m: pretty good activity! Then 40m for EU, after some QSOs no more answers. 20m again: both EU and US came up with good strength, but SKSE ended quicly so Thomas M0TRN is missing from my log...

I used 5 straight keys one-by-one for the QSOs, picture is attached.

From Eldon W0SZV, SKCC #4999T

Fixing broken lawn mower for neighbor and just forgot all about the spring. Maybe better luck next month. Hope all had a good time

From Jon K1NV, SKCC #2609T

Conditions were the worst I've ever seen for any sprint over the last few years. W5ZR's big signal was a lonely beacon on an essentially dead 20M band. I heard LW1EX briefly on 15M, but by the time I retuned, he had disappeared. EA3NO was copyable for a time but I couldn't raise him after many calls.

From Walt LW3EX, SKCC #3804T

Nice sprint and good conditions to EU & NA at this end, worked on 10, 15 and 20m as usual.

Thanks all for the Q`s, BCNU next WES. 73 Walt - ..-

From Rick K0KEX, SKCC #5220T

20 & 15 were noisy, 10M was quiet with Walt LW3EX good in Missouri. Thanks to HP2SM for a 15M DX Q. I made 7 contacts with 7 different keys. The pix shows the keys, what a mental challenge...BUT lots of fun....L to R J-38, Signal Elect M100,

From Lluis EA3NO, SKCC #6653T

I'm sorry, I was wrong with the multipliers...¡¡¡

From Ad Wouterson PA2PCH, SKCC #5217

I used both my Junker and Kent keys.

From Joe KD2JC, SKCC #710T

Condition not good here. Had to quit early because of storms in the area. Used the Vibroplex Champion throughout. 73.

From Peter DF2KI, SKCC #6052

From Alex PA1FOX, SKCC #8265C

From Bernard F5DE, SKCC #6247T

I was in front of the station but I started the event with more than half an hour late, a thoughtless blundre ! My watch was stopped !

I used one of my three types of keys coming from my little collection : a french Maniflex cootie key, a German Junker straight key and a US Vibroplex Champion bug key.

QSO one new SKCC number : N1ME the PSARC of Maine, operated by W1LIC, thank you Wes !

73 to all and see you in next SKCC events !
