My sentiments agree with most of the previous posters.


I think there should be a "Digital VHF" contest and then another one for
CW/SSB.perhaps broken out to either

CW or SSB. *(just like many HF multimode contests)


I won't ever use the FT modes.even if it means missing a new country on 6m.


By the same token, I think those that do use it should have their own
contest..not take away from my CW (and SSB) enjoyment.


For decades, 6m was my favorite band..now, 98% of the activity is on
FT8.which is cool, (do what you want) but don't ruin the contests for us CW
stalwarts too.


Harumph ! ;-)
