See more about N1CC (Jim) at web home page http://www.jlaporta.com/N1CC/ . This year is ARRL's 100th year. I have a special QSL for QSOs made in 2014 in the ARRL Centennial event. Please send your card with a business size self-addressed and stamped envelope (SASE) to get one of the 4' x 6" cards (Image on this page to see). All QSOs will be entered on LoTW.

I have been taking part in the ARRL Centennial Challenge QSO Party (ARRL Members only). You can check your own station information by logging onto the "Leader Board" at https://centennial-qp.arrl.org/ by using your LoTW User Name and LoTW Password. This is updated both when you upload a LoTW Log yourself, and when another station does an upload that includes a contact with your call sign. Therefore, even if you have not been uploading your information some of your points will be shown. (Work N1CC one time each band per mode  if you are a member of ARRL - Please no more dupes!)

2013 Contesting Result Updates for Frankston Location:

October 24, 2014:  Certificate for 2013 ARRL SS Phone First Place North Texas Section received.

June 2014 The results for ARRL 10-Meter Contest 2013 are now on the ARRL website.  Pleased to see that I scored #2 in USA and #1 in West Gulf Division in the QRP Single Operator Category!  Full details will are in July QST.  This was my first foray into QRP contesting.

June 14, 2014 picked up 3d Place Plaque for Texas QSO Party (TQP) Single Op Low Power All Band at HamCom from the TQP sponsor!

June 6, 2014 received CQ WW DX Contest certificate for SSB.  N1CC/5 Placed 1st Low Power Single Op Assisted All Band for US Fifth Call Area!  #11 in USA and #12 in North America!

June 2014 received California QSO Party (CQP) Wine and Plaque!  I placed # 2 in the USA and # 1 in Texas for Single Operator Mixed (Non-Assisted)! Also, for the first time in several years I made the WINE list ... #8 for Non-California that makes 10 times on the top 20, the first time from Texas! Thanks to NCCC for a GREAT event!

Notes: I do not participate in eQSL, QRZ Log, or Logbook. Frankston is located in TWO Texas counties. I am in Henderson County, not Anderson.

Opinion: I prefer real operating on the air, and am not into Internet or Social Networking. The new concept of "Remote" where people use a station many miles or thousands of miles from where they actually are is interesting, however, not something that I would consider doing. For those stations you should have to be assigned a special call, so that people you call know you are "spoofing" your actual physical location at a virtual site.

I will QSL via the ARRL Bureau system, direct, and LoTW.

73, Jim
