Since we are talking 1973 Field Day, I was already in college attending 
UCLA, and I recall that Marty (WB6VZI) had already left the helm of our 
college station (W6YRA); Marty also left us with an awesome station located 
on the roof of the Engineering Building.  By that time, the UCLA Radio Club 
was pretty established and I (along with Rocco - N6KN) was leading their 
Field Days, which often setup on a mountain peak overlooking Malibu. That 
also means that Ed (WN6QDQ) was probably long gone, since he graduated from 
High School a year ahead of me along with Craig Smith (WA6DPP).

Done by brute force with 3,000 Qs!

We won more than once.? Here is a list "Leg" compiled for us a while

1966 Sierra Pelona WB6OLD/6 -- Matt and I
1967 Rancho San Julian WB6SST/6 and W6CXW/6 for the Bodids
1968 WA6LXN/6 callsign debuts and we operate 5A above Valley Circle
1969 4A winner from the new house lots south of Ventura
1970 Contractors Point

Notice we won 4A in 1969 also according to Leigh - anybody got a QST
    from then to confirm?

I also think he has the locations for 1967 and 1968 backwards.? I
    think Valley Circle was my first FD and I definitely remember using
    the phonetics "Super Sloppy Toiletrymanship" there.? (Probably the
    first time you ever heard or will hear that word unless you were

WA6LXN/6 in 1973 was my very first Field Day, and my call was even used for
