Monthly News (SCCCORE - SoCal Contest Club Operations, Results and Enlightenments)
December 2022
SCCC logo Welcome aboard to new SCCC member Ryan, KI6BTY. Ryan was licensed in 2007 but has only recently really got into the hobby. He is a recovering computer geek and thus is really enjoying FT8 and other digital modes. He is new to contesting and award chasing and is looking forward to improving his radio and contesting skills.

Did you catch it?! The November-December issue of the National Contest Journal (NCJ) has Part 1 of Jim, N6TJ's "70 Years of Contest Memories." And what a great first installment it is! The man has experienced a lot of contesting in those 70 years, and he has some stories to tell. Jim also includes many FB pictures in the article. If you aren't a subscriber to NCJ (and why aren't you?!), you can get a copy at your local ham radio dealer. I can't wait for Part 2!

Video: Exploring a One Million Watt Tower!
December 2022
Having worked on some communications towers on mountaintops during my working career, this caught my eye.
And while not amateur radio related, I thought you might enjoy it anyway. Because who doesn't like
touring a big broadcast site and tower?!
