SST'ers stepped on the piggies tonite on 40m. 20 & 80 were nil in the WNY barnyard. Rig: IC-7000 at 5w. into G5RV up 25 ft. w/ straight key. 73 to all us oinkers!
k4wy, Jack, 5 fpqso=11 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=10 total=330
FT-817 at 5W to an inverted L and 80M dipole. Nice to have a good number of oinks from the barnyard. Concentrated on 40M and rolled up to 80M with the majority of QSOs on 40.
Agree with K4BAI too let’s qsy to 7120. My 40M qsos were from 7.030 -7.035 and above 7.060 up to the FT8 freq.
ac2yd, Ben, 2W fpqso=8 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=7 total=168
SST does make things difficult ... only 1 Q after it started, after 7 in first hour. QSOs: WD9GKG (20m, all others 40m), K1LGQ (gave me an FP number after I explained I was working FP!), NN9K, KA2KGP, K9QEW, K4BAI, W4NLT, W9NX. Thanks for the good ears and antennas!
W4NLT, Andy, 5W fpqso=6 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=5 total=90
Agree with John. Fruitless to try to operate when K1USN event in progress. Only got 30 minutes of the first hour and signals were pretty good on 40M.I tried CQ outside usual freq and between 7115-7120 in hopes some would try up there but no joy. So lets just do it when K1USN event in progress.
72 oinkers cu
WB1GYZ, Bob, 5 fpqso=5 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=5 total=75
worked NN9K, KA2KGP, W4NLT, K1LGQ, on 40 and K6FA on 20. Not sure if LGQ was working the Sprint or just operating QRP at 3W.
K9QEW, Daryl, 5 fpqso=5 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=4 total=60
IC 7300 J38 key to a 4btv. QSOs: KA2KGP,AC2YD, K4BAI,
K2CWM,& W4NLT. 72/73s & STAY TUNED
K4BAI, JOHN, 5W fpqso=4 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=3 total=36
Limited time tonight, but 40M was good during the first hour. Again, I suggest that the FP activity move to 7120 or so when the SST starts up. 73/72, John, K4BAI.
w9nx, Kent, 5w fpqso=3 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=3 total=27
K6FA, David, 5 watts fpqso=3 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=3 total=27
Well did a lot of CQing on 40 but no luck there. Got 3 on 20 meters. Thank you N3AZB, K3EMS, and WB1GYZ (the strongest signal). Used my K3 at 5 watts and 3 el beam on 20. Vertical for 40 which always seems to do good. See you next time and I agree about the 7120.
K3EMS, George, 5 fpqso=3 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=3 total=27
Another vote for 7120 +/-. Two on a noisy 20 meters. 40 sounded to be in good shape though very crowded with SST (God bless ‘em). Called on 80 with no takers and that was that. 73 till next time.
K2CWM, Curt, 5 fpqso=3 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=2 total=18
Just 3 for me. Thanks Tom, Peter, Daryl. See y'all next month.
WB5K, Jay, 5 fpqso=1 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=1 total=3
n3azb, Dennis Roth, 4.9 watts fpqso=1 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=1 total=3
Spent the first half hour on 20 meters, contacted piggie K6FA.
Wasted the next hour on 40 meters, no piggies, should have stayed on 20m. Tried 80 meters for 15 minutes then quit 15 minutes early and went to bed.
AL7JK, John, 5W fpqso=0 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=0 total=0
Band condx were much better than last month, I actually heard some signals this time around on 20 mtrs. Due to the number of stns in Japan I qsy'd up from 14060 khz to 14067 khz. Allmost got KHJ6DL, FP # 3819 in the log, Chuck faded out before I could contact him. 73 to all ! AL7JK, John
N2RIC, Rich, 5W fpqso=0 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=0 total=0
Couldn't hear much over QRM and QRN this evening.
Kc3mio , Rich, 3 w fpqso=0 fpdxqso=0 nonfpqso=0 spc=0 total=0
I had my MTR5B running three watts into a mag loop up 16’ on my deck and was hopeful after working stations in WA and LA on 20 about an hour before the start. But I heard no calls and got no responses on 20 and turned to 40 where I worked a few SST stations. I went back to 20 and heard at least one CQ FP, but couldn’t make any QSOs. My XYL asked why I do this when I’m not successful. Thanks Honey.
