Subject:  2006 CQ WW VHF Contest

From:  Contest Director W1XX

We know you are still smiling over the fabulous conditions experienced in the CQWW VHF Contest last July.  We are now putting together the report to appear in the April issue of CQ Magazine.  But there are two areas in which we could use some more help.

Photos:  Pix of contest operations, especially if portable, are wanted.  We haven't received many photos for publication consideration.  Let the rest of the VHF world see your photo in the pages of CQ Magazine...operating your station...installing antennas...etc.  Don't be shy.  E-mail to me or if you prefer snail mail to my address [@QRZ.com].  

Plaque sponsorship:  A couple of years ago we initiated the plaque program to recognize superlative accomplishment.  This contest revolves around the efforts of modest stations with 6 and 2-meter capability.  But we do want to recognize the very top scores with a truly outstanding multi-colored engraved plaque that looks great on any shack wall.  Plaques are sponsored primarily by other contestants.  To expand the number of plaques offered, we need more sponsors.  Please consider becoming a plaque sponsor [or your club] as a way to show your continued support of this great VHF contest.  After all, it is the season of giving.  For details of how to sponsor a plaque, see the "Plaque Program" link on the contest website:  www.cqww-vhf.com.

Season's greetings from the VHF contest folks at CQ.

-- John Lindholm, W1XX
