Introducing 2005 Fall VHF/UHF Sprints:
The Southeastern VHF Society is again sponsoring the Fall
VHF/UHF Sprints. All amateurs are encouraged to participate,
even if only in a small way. The rules have intentionally
remained simple. They are meant to get everyone on and
operate. The rules encourage rover, microwave operation and
the casual operator new to VHF/UHF.
The contest is intended for single operator, single
transmitter entries. However, if one wishes to introduce a
newcomer to weak signal vhf/uhf operations, the sponsors of
the contest reserve the right to allow such entries, if
identified as such. Operating categories are Single Op and
Sprints are held on different days for each band except for
the Microwaves (902 and up) which are held together. The
operating time for each Sprint is short (like a sprint :-)
and meant to compress the activity into a shorter time span.
At present we do not have any plaque sponsors. If you would
like to sponsor a plaque for one of the Sprints please
contact the Fall Sprints Chairman Jim Worsham W4KXY at
While the rules for the Fall Sprints are set for 2005, we
are always open to suggestions on how to improve them for
the future. If you have an idea on how to make the Fall
Sprints better for next year (different dates, times, rule
change, etc.) please drop the Fall Sprints Chairman a note
and help out.
