Monthly News (SCCCORE - SoCal Contest Club Operations, Results and Enlightenments)
July 2020
SCCC logo SCCC is celebrating its 44th year this month! The club was established on July 17, 1976.

The International DX Convention, normally held in April in Visalia, will be going virtual in 2021. From the web site, "After consultation with a few medical experts, epidemiologists, and long-time attendees of IDXCC, we have concluded that for 2021, the right choice -- and the safest choice -- is to have a Virtual Convention instead of an in-person meeting. So that is our plan." The committee has also renamed it the "International DX & Contesting Convention" (IDXCC) to more accurately reflect what it has become over lthe years. Indeed, contesters have flocked to the convention for many decades. The 2021 event will be held on two weekends, April 16-18 and 23-25. Keep an eye on the convention web site for updated news and registration information.

2021 Visalia International DX and Contesting Social Gathering by N6AA and N6TJ
updated 19 June 2020
The following is being organized by Dick, N6AA and Jim, N6TJ. This is not an official SCCC event but information is provided here as a courtesy. Updates will be provide by Dick and Jim when available.

Some of us attend the Visalia DX Convention in great measure to socialize with close friends, hams that we work on the air, and potential new friends. Some of us feel that this in-person socialization is an important part of our radio lives.

The planned 2021 Internet convention is missing the in-person socialization, and the smaller social gathering is planned to fill that void.

The social gathering is not organized to compete with the main convention, but to augment it. The event's date was selected to not conflict with the main event.

6E2T SCCC Team #1 World M/2 1995 ARRL DX CW by N6NC
July 2020
6E2T Team
Larry, N6NC tells us about the SCCC effort at 6E2T in Ensenada, Mexico in the 1995 ARRL DX CW contest. The operation took #1 World in the M/2 catgory.

Prelude- 1994 ARRL DX CW

After a SCCC meeting in LA ~JAN 1994, Ken K6LA, Marv K2VIV and I decided to try an operation from MX for the 1994 ARRL DX CW. We rented two side-by-side condos at the then-new Grand Baja Resort complex only yards south of the Puerto Nuevo lobster restaurants.

The landscaping wasn't even finished and there was exposed clay all around the project. Unfortunately we had heavy rains (and snow!) starting on Friday. Ken brought his rig and amp and did all of the operating. Marv and I set up the antennas, I think an A3 tribander on a mast in the courtyard, and a Butternut 160m-40m vertical with 32 wire radials which we set up on the coast road side of the condos. We had coax cables running outside in various places, and if onlookers asked whether we were from CNN, we nodded.
