Hello everyone...WOW!! Talk about "Ask and ye shall receive"....I
posted on the VHF reflector that the CQ WW VHF rules had not yet been
published. About a day later, I got this. The actual address for the
This is WONDERFUL new set of rules. I have always thought that the CQ
WW VHF contest was the best contest that we have, but this makes it even
better. This is what the rules for a VHF contest ought to look like.
Thank you John and the whole CQ VHF contest group.
A nice compromise was struck between the older "normal" modes(which will
still dominate by far) and the newer WSJT meteor scatter and EME modes.
The silly distinctions between what a single-op can do and what a
multi-op can do are not there. The goal here really is to "Work as many
stations as possible". Wake up ARRL, this is what VHF contesting rules
ought to look like....
I will be looking for everyone in July when the CQ WW VHF contest runs
