>From the ARRL Members only website:

New VHF Category Addition: The ARRL Awards Committee has 
voted to accept a Contest Advisory Committee 
recommendation for the addition of a Single Operator Low 
Power entry category for VHF Contests, beginning with 
the January 2000 VHF Sweepstakes. The maximum power 
limits for the new Single Operator Low Power category 
will be: 50 MHz and 144 MHz, 200 W PEP maximum; 222 MHz 
and 432 MHz, 100 W PEP maximum; 902 MHz and above, 10 W 
PEP maximum. To qualify under the new category, a 
station must operate within the maximum power 
limitations on each band in which they participate. 
Certificates and awards will be developed for the new 
category according to the current awards structure. This 
rule will not affect the current Single Op QRP Portable 
category. The goal of the new category is to encourage 
greater participation among the large number of VHF/UHF 
contest enthusiasts, many of whom can be competitive at 
lower power levels. For more information, contact ARRL 
Contest Branch Manager Dan Henderson, N1ND,

Thank you, thank you ARRL !
