Monthly News (SCCCORE - SoCal Contest Club Operations, Results and Enlightenments)
April 2020
W6KH-N6TJ-PY5EG Jim, N6TJ fresh off trips to KH6LC for ARRL DX SSB and KH7M for WPX SSB tells us he will be back at KH7M for WPX CW in May and CQWW SSB in October. He will be at 9Y4W for CQWW CW. A buy contesting year for Jim!

Word came in from Dick, N6AA via the SCCC Reflector on March 10 that this month's International DX Convention in Visalia has been cancelled. The decision reflects the Committee's concern for the health and well being of propestive attendees in light of the COVID-19 Coronavirus outbreak that has been spreading across the globe in recent weeks. ARRL posted the same information the following day.

As well, the 2020 Dayton Hamvention announced on March 15 that it too has cancelled.

Veritium HFClock Review by NE6I
April 2020
Veritium HF Clock Contesters and DXers alike are well aware that propagation is often enhanced considerably to and from an area in the world where it is sunrise or sunset, something we call gray line. Way back in the days before computers, a company named Xantek manufactured a product called "The DX Edge." This wonderful tool consisted of a series of plastic slides, one for each month, that slid back and forth through a "carrier," or flat Mercator map of the world. This simulated the earth's rotation, and allowed us to see which parts of the world were in daylight, which were in darkness, and most importantly, which were in the gray line. It was an ingenious creation and was quite popular in its time. See picture below.

Fast forward to today, and we have computers and software to do this for us. There is even a small version of this included in the popular N1MM+ contesting software.
