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 
rules is

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
