Subject: VHF Contest Grid-pedition --- FM26
I haven't seen this posted, and meant to do it earlier in the week.
AA4R, K4MQG and WA4VCC will be operating from FM26 for the
VHF contest (the C word)...I thought they were going to be setup
beforehand but we haven't heard anything here. As this is only one
of the three USA grids that W5FF needs to have ALL the USA grids
on 6 meters, I doubt that many of us have this one on 6 (I know I
don't.) I believe the contest (C word again) call will be AA4R, and
he (Bill / AA4R) will handle the QSL chores. The weekend after the
VHF contest (the C word), I will also be there for a week and unless
the XYL finds out beforehand I'll be taking my TS690 and antennas
for 20 and 6 meters (forgiveness is easier to get than permission:
Skelton's Law of Amateur Radio on FAmily Vacations).
Good luck to all in the VHF Contest (see, I used the C word again).
