A Collection of Old SCCC News Stories (Newest to Oldest)
Ionospheric Disturbance
December 2013
Alarmed by the massive ionospheric disturbance detected within the Arctic Circle on the weekend of November 23-24, a team was dispatched to locate the source and determine what was causing it.

As they arrived in the Mojave area of Southern California the field strength was so severe that Rudolph's nose had turned a sickening crimson color. Meanwhile the old bearded guy in the red suit was in a very jolly mood having spent the last several hours sipping from a bottle of Jack Daniels that had been conveniently stowed in the back of the slay.

After a few minutes triangulation the source was located and a picture (left) was taken as evidence of the 15m RF that was emanating from the N6MI contest van. When confronted with the photographic evidence N6MI came up with a not to be believed story to explain what he was doing out in the desert on a Saturday evening. An appropriate entry was made into the naughty/nice book.
SCCC Wins Yet Another Gavel - N6NB
November 2013
The results of the 2013 August UHF contest are now online at ARRL.org, and SCCC won the club competition. Unlike the June VHF contest, in which SCCC just barely outscored the Potomac Valley Radio Club (by 30K out of 1.3 million points), this one was a blowout.

SCCC had 1.1 megapoints. The next highest club aggregate score was about 250K.

Our score came mostly from rovers. N6NB had the top rover score, followed by KI6FGV and the family duo of N6EY and N6KYS. Sharing a station under the family rule for the first time (they were married three weeks before the contest), they tied for third nationally. Another married couple, W6TTF and WA6WTF, tied for sixth.

The UHF contest has only included a club competition for five years, but SCCC has now won four gavels in this contest. Surely the rules will be changed soon!
Another Gavel for SCCC - N6NB
June 2014
SCCC has won still another gavel in a VHF contest, our eleventh (11th) during the last four years. But it could be our last gavel for a while.

The results of the January, 2014 VHF Contest are in the just-released digital edition of the July, 2014 QST.

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
