[VHFcontesting] 222 Mhz question

In the Chicago and Milwaukee areas 222 MHz contest contacts are routinely made on FM along with SSB and CW. I bring along both weak signal and FM equipment during all of my roving activities. Some stations are aware that I monitor 223.5 FM during the whole contest so that if they can't find me anywhere else, they can get my attention on FM. There is much more action on SSB/CW for sure but before I had a transverter for 222 I did okay with FM only. Farther away from the big cities, it may be a whole different situation. Many FM rigs are reasonably priced and I find that it is better to have only FM than not to have 222 at all.
Best of luck and 73

Subject: [VHFcontesting] 222 Mhz question
I was wondering if all contest contacts on 222 Mhz are made using
converters or if some quantity of contacts are made with people
using 222 Mhz FM rigs.
Any information will be appreciated.
