NCC 6th in 2013 CQWWDX
NCC in 6th Place in 2013 CQWWDX Club Competition
We wanted to call members’ attention to the fact that NCC placed sixth in the combined SSB and CW USA club competition with a score of 120 million in last year’s CQWW. Leading the pack in this competition was the Yankee Clipper Contest Club with a score of 549 million points. The interesting thing about this is that NCC achieved its score with only 35 entries compared with 280 entries from YCCC. K3LR’s scores contributed well over 50% of the total NCC score. NCC’s score was 12th in the world. If we could get more activity, we could see our ranking improve considerably.
Most members have seen the final results of the 2013 CQWW DX Contest (http://www.cq-amateur-radio.com/cq_contests/cq_ww_dx_contest/index_cq_ww_dx_contest.html) , but we wanted to mention here the fantastic results from our three top multioperator stations. K3LR again came in first in the USA and fourth worldwide in both the CW and the SSB weekends. The CW win was ‘LR’s ninth consecutive USA win. Also noteworthy in the MM category was the W2FU third-place score just behind W3LPL. And K8AZ’s tremendous scores also deserve mention. Tom’s MS crew produced second place USA showings in both the CW and SSB weekends. In the CW weekend, they were competing with the W1WMU crew operating from a QTH in eastern Maine. The CQ Magazine article by K5ZD covering the CW contest featured a color picture of the K8AZ station showing W3YQ, K8NZ, W8CAR and K8BL hard at work during the contest!
