SCCC Wins Another Gavel - N6NB
November 2013
The results of the June 2013 VHF contest are now online on ARRL.org. The Southern California Contest Club had the highest club aggregate score of any club anywhere. But it was a cliffhanger: SCCC had 1.36 million points to Potomac Valley's 1.33 million. No other club had a score more than about half of the SCCC and PVRC totals.

SCCC also had a bunch of top individual scores. More on that in a minute...more

n6mi n6mi N6MI Kern County Expedition

J. Scott Bovitz, N6MI (www.n6mi.com), made a trip to Kern County for the 2013 California QSO Party. N6MI made more than 1,100 contacts from the Mojave Desert floor in his fully equipped ham van -- complete with a 56' 2" pneumatic mast and a rack mounted Elecraft K3 line. N6MI only missed one multiplier in the United States and Canada. His pain at missing Utah was partially eased by the enthusiastic CQP participation from Europe.

ARRL September VHF Contest
September 2013
n6nb1 N6NB - it was a chance to try out my still-unoccupied house in Panorama Heights. I parked the tower trailer in the driveway and used the same equipment and antennas that I used in June on Signal Peak. It seems to be a pretty good location.

w6te W6TE - John, K6MI, and I operated the ARRL Sept. VHF contest from 8,000 ft Frazier Mt. Thanks to the So Cal rovers and others we were able to amass over 150,000 points operating 10 bands. Unfortunately, activity was way down from prior contests.

Claimed score: 149,930
Pack Rovers - A pack of six rovers travelled from DM12 (San Diego) to DM06/CM95/CM96 (Kettleman City) for a total of ten grids. Not all rovers visited all grids. Each rover was equipped with the ten bands between 50MHz and 10GHz. Many contacts were made with portable stations N6NB and W6TE. Special thanks to W6TAI who made a trip to Gaviota in order to work the pack from CM94 on all ten bands, over an almost all sea path.
