"Outlaw Mike " Sez: Outlaw Bob

Dateline: The KC7V Outlaw Hideout,
Cave Creek, Arizona - January 5, 2014

Happy New Year to all AOCC members!  May 2014 produce the best ever Contest scores for you.
The fall contest season is winding down.  It has been a great season so far with flux and spots giving us great conditions.  This club has been well represented in the individual scoring boxes and in club competition.  Congratulations to all for the fine efforts you've made and continue reporting your scores, no matter how small.

As a reminder, Paul, W8AEF, has a node running at paul.w8aef.com port 23.  He receives spots from WA7LNW, WZ7I skimmers and DL4RCK digital skimmer.

Your Prez, Outlaw Mike KC7V, was selected as a referee for WRTC2014 held in the Greater Boston area July 2014.  This is my 3rd time as a referee - San Francisco 1996, Brazil 2006 and Boston 2014.  I am excited about it and am looking forward to the event.  If you have the chance to attend one, even as a visitor, you'll meet the best of the best contesters from around the world and make new lifelong friends.

As many of you know, the some ARRL contests added a new category - Single Operator Unlimited, which allows for spotting assistance.  These contests should be adding this category in 2014:

ARRL 10 Meter Contest

ARRL 160 Meter Contest

ARRL RTTY Round Up Contest

IARU Contest

MAJOR AOCC Contest Happenings since our last website update:
CQWW DX CW Contest was a huge effort for AOCC.  We had great score contributions from the DX side - P3F (AA7A & KY7M), OC4CW (N7CW) and KH7M (NA2U).
AOCC bested our club record in the recent ARRL 10 Meter contest.


AOCC Success in Contests
As we have come to expect, AOCC scores in contests continue to be impressive.  We place high in the score box vs. other clubs in our category.  Please continue to report your scores to 3830 no matter how small you think it may be.  We want all the points!   There is a new URL for 3830 posting and it is:  http://www.3830scores.com.  Submittal choices are usually on the top left.  Outlaw Bob reports success, both individually and team wise, on the AOCC reflector.

N7AT and NA2U

A happy group of Arizona Outlaws in breakfast mode following 2013 CQWW DX CW. (L-R) Bob K8IA, Kevin W9CF, Mike KC7V, Steve KJ5T, Andy NY7N, Fred NA2U, John K7WP and Lou K1YR. Including KS5A (not in pic) and omitting NA2U, each of these ops operated one or both modes of 2013 CQWW at the N7AT station, at the home of K8IA and N7RQ. The N7AT M/2 operations contributed 6.3 Million points in CQWW DX SSB and 7.8 Million points in CQWW DX CW. In addition, Fred NA2U operated KH7M to the tune of 5.3 Million points in SOAB(A) HP.

CQWW DX Contests
The Arizona Outlaws Contest Club performed admirably in both modes of the 2013 CQWW DX Contests. In the CQWW DX SSB weekend, AOCC had 42 entries and over 28.7 Million claimed points. In the CQWW DX CW weekend, AOCC had 38 entries and over 57.4 Million points.
That is a total AOCC claimed score of 86.2 Million claimed points and probably another new 7th area record, breaking the one we set last year.

K5RR

This is the slick 4 tower antenna system of Dick K5RR in Tucson. He finished 2013 CQWW DX SSB with a cool 2.2 Million points, the highest SOAB HP Arizona Outlaw score.

ARRL SWEEPSTAKES
The Arizona Outlaws were, again this year, very active in 2013 ARRL SS. In ARRL SS CW, we had 22 entries totaling 2,205,018 claimed points. In ARRL SS SSB, we had 20 entries and 1,184,856 claimed makes our total claimed score of 3,389,874 points (42 entries), which should place us well up in the Medium Club category standings.
