Congratulations Rob, on a job well
2010 ARRL DX Phone Contest
In March 2010 KH6LC was operated by Rob, NH6V as a Single
Operator, Single band 80M entry. He ended up with a
new Oceania record in the process.
Excerpts from QST Magazine's Expanded Results article...
80 Meters (SOSB-80)
Hereís a great story Ė KH6LC (piloted by NH6V) is the first
Oceania station to win this category since before 2002. In fact, no other
Oceania station has even made the Top Ten in that period! Considering the
advantage Europeans have with the East Coastís many stations being so much
closer, thatís quite an achievement! Second and third place were only
separated by 2.8% as RA3COís Bahamas vacation as C6AWL resulted in a narrow
second-place margin over G4BYB operating GM3PPG.

40 meters wasnít the only
band on which increased activity paid off. On 80
new record-holder is KH6LC (NH6V, op) with 211k points, besting a
of 141k points. In fact, I donít see another Oceania station in
the Top Ten on 80 meters in
any of the years since 2002
in which Iíve been tracking the contest! The 1990 record was the
oldest to fall in 2010.
