SCCC Bulletins

The Southern California Contest Club (SCCC) was formed in 1976. If you have documents pertaining to it or can tell me the early history of the Club, please contact me.

This is not the official web page of the Southern California Contest Club, nor am I an officer of the club any longer but I have scanned and made available copies of the old club bulletins that I have in my possession. In those days, there was no internet and thus no SCCC web site. Bulletins were written with a text editor or early word processor and printed on a dot matrix printer. Copies were made at work or wherever a copier could be found. Those copies were stapled, folded and stamped by hand. In fact, most were addressed by hand too! My, how times have changed!

I bet most of you didn't know that little factoid!

SCCC Bulletin SCCCORE, November-December, 1984 Notes from the recent SCCC XE2SI CQWW SSB operation.

SCCC Bulletin QRZ TEST, July-August, 1982 The third in a series of test names for the bulletin. You can clearly see the paste job I did to attach the bulletin name in those days. Graphics and "fancy" fonts were out of reach, so pasting to the master was the order of the day.

SCCC Bulletin WINNER'S CIRCLE, March-April, 1982 NE6I takes over as Bulletin Editor and begins testing different bulletin names in hopes of finding one that sticks. Dot matrix printers could not yet print different font sizes, at least not the one I had available.
