A Collection of Old SCCC News Stories (Newest to Oldest)
Upcoming June VHF Contest - N6NB           (Mouseover for full story)
June 2014
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.

Capture The Flag T Hunt - Anthony Cioffi N2KI
June 2014
Well hello everyone! Today was our Capture The Flag Fox Hunt sponsored by the Hudson Valley Direction Finding Association of Orange County NY. This was the first event of its kind in this area and I am happy to report, a success.

We had two teams made up of four hunters each. TEAM EAST was comprised of K2STN (Team Captain), KB2SSZ, WA2KOT and WM2C. TEAM WEST was comprised of AC2O (Team Captain), N2KI, N2DBD and KC2YYF.

The event promptly started at 10 am with a four hour time limit. The WEST team hid their transmitter in Highland State Park.

Promptly at 10am the transmitters were activated. Both teams were required to take their first bearing from where they hid their transmitter.    more
