The VHF contest is June 14-15. A number of SCCC members will be active, some at home, some on mountaintops and some roving. Unfortunately, it does not appear likely
that we will have as many stations on as we did last year, when SCCC won the gavel for the highest aggregate score of any medium size club in the country.
Probably the largest multioperator effort will be headed up by Dave Smith, W6TE, on Frazier Mountain. His team will be using a motor home, a fifth wheel trailer
and several other vehicles plus at least four generators and equipment for every band through 10 GHz. Among those planning to join W6TE on Frazier are K6MI, K6ZMW,
W6YLZ, WA6WTF and WB2WIK.
N6MI and K6VCR will be on a mountain near Barstow, using Scott's converted TV news van. They will be on all bands through 1296.
NI6E and K6EPP are planning to tow their newly built tower trailer to the desert east of Chiriaco Summit in DM23. Look for them especially on six meters.
N6TEB and K6WCI may operate at N6NB's hilltop house in Orange County--or they may rove. If they are at N6NB's house, they will operate separately using two
completely independent stations for all bands through 10 GHz. They were not sure what they would do at this writing.
Carole, W6TTF, will be roving with 10 bands, mainly to provide rare microwave multipliers for the W6TE group. N6NB may rove, but probably on a limited basis.
Several others who have roved in recent years will be unavailable this year for a variety of reasons.
