Monthly News (SCCCORE - SoCal Contest Club Operations, Results and Enlightenments)
January 2020
SCCC Logo The next Kids Day is Saturday, January 4 1800 - 2359 UTC. Getting on and working the kids (or better yet, hosting one!) is a great way to help show the upcoming generation how much fun amateur radio is. Who knows, some of them might be the next batch of great contesters! The exchange is name, age, location and favorite color. Feel free to engage the youngsters in additional conversation beyond that! Full details are on the ARRL web site at this link.

Congratulations to Axel, KI6RRN! He is currently top ranked in the USA in the WRTC 2022 qualifications race! John, K6AM believes that Axel will be #1 in the World once his WAE contest score is corrected! He is currently shown in 4th place. As we all know, Axel has been very active in recent years and has been turning in some amazing scores! Go get 'em, Axel! Details on his current WRTC status can be found here.

The Other Side of the World by N6VI
January 2019
CQWW at 3B8M CQWW DX CW From 3B8 by Marty Woll, N6VI

Many of us have had the chance to operate DX contests from outside the Lower 48, but how far from home can you get, really? The answer, of course, is about 12,000 miles – yes, the other side of the globe! I had the chance to do just that last month (November).

The adventure began when Olof G0CKV started assembling a team to operate the CQ Worldwide CW contest from the island of Mauritius, which lies east of Madagascar in the Indian Ocean. Dick N6AA got an invitation for himself and Art W6XD from Olof, but the team size was limited by the expected number of operating positions and the number of people the location could house. As some of the original participants dropped out, room opened up for another, and I was pleased to fill that spot. The final team consisted of Olof, Dick, Art, me, Denny KX7M from Northern California and past ARRL CEO Dave K1ZZ.
