To Southern California Contest Club:
Dear Fellow DX-ers and Contesters,

You are cordially invited to the Asia Pacific DX Convention 2014, which will take place November 14-16, 2014.

In addition to our usual presentations on recent DX-peditions, technical sessions, DX dinners and so forth, this convention offers something special. Japan is where most of the amateur radio equipment is developed, and you will have the opportunity to join a tour to the Icom factory, participate in a technical session led by the Icom HF radio design team, and more.

All of the programs at APDXC are conducted in English! For more details, please visit the APDXC website. For convention updates, check our website often, or send an email to subscribe to the APDXC newsletter:

We look forward to welcoming you at the APDXC in Osaka, Japan. - APDXC Committee / JA3USA

The K9CT Contest Station - Craig Thompson K9CT
September 2014
The K9CT Contest Station was created as a project and challenge for myself. The spark that lead to this was the compromises of living in close quarters to my neighbors and finding out what could be done to get to the next level in contesting. My curiosity of all of the technologies and designs that could be implemented whet my appetite for the project. But most of all, the camaraderie of the dxpedition team environment lead me to the multi-operator contesting setup.

I wanted a blank canvas to work with and needed some land for the project. My search for property started in 2008 and continued until 2009 when I acquired 18 acres of flat land about four miles from my home and station. I did some research before looking for the land. Contesters were surveyed and responses were gathered. Generally, I was advised to find a flat rectangular plot of about 10 to 20 acres. The long portion of the rectangle needed to run north-south so that the towers would line up and the EU and JA paths would provide isolation between antennas.    more
