June VHF Contest

The ARRL June VHF Contest is not far away! Begins 1800 UTC Saturday and runs through 0259 UTC Monday (June14 - 16, 2014).I hope everybody is making plans for an exciting contest as home station, multi-op, or rover stations. Hopefully 6 meters will have an opening providing a ton of grid square multipliers. Give FM a try on all the FM simplex frequencies. Think about trying FM only or single operator portable. If you know any new hams, encourage them to operate, or better yet organize a small multi op station as an introduction to VHF contesting as a way of getting some on air experience for the newbies.
