Monthly News (SCCCORE - SoCal Contest Club Operations, Results and Enlightenments)
April 2024
Welcome to the club Bill, N7VM! Bill lives in Fallbrook (north of San Diego) and has been contesting since 1976 when he entered SS CW. He's currently building a new station there in Fallbrook after relocating from Utah and eastern Massachussetts. He mostly does HF contests but has done some VHF as well. He prefers CW but recently did 27+ hours in ARRL DX SSB. He hopes one day to experience operating from the DX side.

Building a HamClock on a Pi Computer by Dennis, NE6I
April 2024
HamClock Back in April, 2022, I presented an article about Veritium's HFClock. I still use it to this day and find it to be a very nifty addition to the ham shack. HFClock is much, much, much more than just a clock. You can read more about it in that 2022 article. Turns out, you can get the same thing from Inovato on their web site. They call it the Quadra HamClock bundle. You see, the software author, WB0OEW, actually calls his software HamClock. Inovato packages this on a small Quadra PC for the amazingly low price of $49! You might need a power supply and some cables, or you can buy their bundle. The keyboard is pretty tiny and you'll probably want to use one that you already have. Their products can be found on their website. Or, you can build one yourself!
