It’s the end of January and the annual SKCC K3Y event has drawn to a close. I ended up with 24 of 140 band slots worked and confirmed. That might sound a little skinny, but it resulted in a US Sweep (K3Y/1, K3Y/2, K3Y/3, K3Y/4, K3Y/5, K3Y/6, K3Y/7, K3Y/8, K3Y/9, K3Y/0).

I also managed to work K3Y/EU, K3Y/NA, K3Y/OC, and K3Y/KH6. I figure that’s not too shabby for the bottom of the solar cycle with a hundred watts and a wire with a straight key.

The extra activity resulted in a respectable January Brag count of 39 and I did work the bonus station. I’ll have to submit those brag results tomorrow.

With 19, 858 current members, the Straight Key Century Club is far and away the largest group of CW enthusiasts on the planet and I might add, the friendliest. If you’re looking for fun and to improve your CW experience then you need to get in on some of this.
