About North Coast Contesters
NCC was formed in 1987 to further the efforts of contesters interested in the CQWW and ARRL DX contests. The member area of the club is a 175 mile circle that includes major parts of Ohio and Pennsylvania and extends into western New York and a small part of Ontario.
Over the the years NCC has given back to contesting by encouraging members to compete in and enjoy the major DX tests. Because of this NCC has won the medium club competition in ARRL DX test 15 times in the past 8 years.
Recently NCC has been putting together joint teams with the Mad River Radio Club for the team competition in the North American QSO Party and the North American Sprint and has produced some excellent results.
NCC has a major presence at the Dayton Hamvention, sponsoring the Contest Super Suite, the Contest Dinner and Contest University. We are proud to count K3LR, owner and driving force behind the K3LR M/M machine and recent inductee into the CQ Contest Hall of Fame, as a founding member.
NCC sponsors the following plaques:
CQWW: SOAB USA LP SSB and CW
ARRL DX: Great Lakes Division single op CW and single op SSB
