Monthly News (SCCCORE - SoCal Contest Club Operations, Results and Enlightenments)
May 2022
Paul, WN6K SK It is with deep sadness that we must report the passing of Paul Dorey, WN6K. Paul passed away at 11:40 pm on April 8 after a battle with pancreatic cancer. His daughter reported that it was very peaceful and he was surrounded by family. Paul was an active SCCC contest contributor. His 3830Scores writeups almost always included what book(s) he finished reading during the contest. I know we all got a smile out of those reports. He had informed me on February 23 that he had started chemo but as we all know, pancreatic cancer is unforgiving. Treatments rarely result in success. He will be missed. Personally, I always wish that ham calls would not be available for at least ten years after a person becomes an SK. Wishful thinking, I guess. Paul's call expires in September, 2025. Let's hope that another contester gets it. 73, Paul and thank you for the many contest QSOs. The service will be May 19 at 1:30 at the Miramar base on Novel Drive. It will be an outdoor ceremony. A link to the flyer can be found here.

The CQWW SSB results are out. Results can be found here and the write up is here. VY2TT (K6LA), KH7M (N6TJ) and TM2Y (N5ZO) placed 8th, 16th and 24th in the world in the fiercely competitive Single Op All Band High Power category. Congrats to all. I also want to make note of two competitors in this contest that recorded absolutely amazing accuracy rates. Yuri, VE3DZ operating as VE2IM had just 14 busted calls out of 6,483 QSOs, an incredible error rate of 0.2%! Randy, K5ZD had just 13 busted calls and an error rate of 0.3%. Just amazing stuff! Kudos to the two of them for such accurate logs!
