Monthly News (SCCCORE - SoCal Contest Club Operations, Results and Enlightenments)
June 2021
SCCC logo The 2020 CQWW DX CW contest results have been published. Dan, N6MJ operated ZF1A and took 2nd place overall. He and Chris, KL9A (who operated TI7W) both recorded over 10,000 Q's as Mr. Sun provided some early Cycle 25 sunspot fireworks. Their QSO totals averaged roughly 230 per hour for the entire contest. Think about that for a moment. That's nearly four Q's per minute. And not just for a burst but on average over the entire contest! Incredible! While the number of DX entities were down (166 versus 254 ten years ago), contestants continue to push the envelope on QSO totals! The USA SOHP All Band standings show Axel, KI6RRN operating as NO6T from the WA6TQT station finishing 5th USA. Not easy to crack the top ten from the west coast, much less the top five! Bill, W8QZA finished 3rd as W6QU in the QRP all band category. The SCCC finished 8th in the club category this go round, and nearly topped the NCCC. Interesting reading in the writeup is Ville's, OH2MM perspective over 50 years of his contesting in CQWW. (I'm not sure his comment about DX spotting moving from 2 meter nets to the internet in the 1980s is accurate. Perhaps but my recollection is that the internet really came into its own in the 1990s as high speed internet came into play (that term is relative obviously as speeds back then could not handle the internet traffic of today). The 1980s were BBSs (Bulletin Board Systems) and that sort of thing. Perhaps my memory fails me? Check out the section about the Russian Woodpecker. OMG, that thing was horrible and could end your operation on the band when it lit up. All in all, a really fun read. Thanks Ville for reminding us of the "good ol' days!"
