[VHFcontesting] 222 Mhz question

At W4NH we typically use a transverter and an I/F radio that will also
do FM. We also make sure to have at least one vertical antenna for 222
(minimum is 4-el). It is then a simple matter of one or two switches
to match the mode and polarization of the station being worked. We see
at least a few FM contacts every contest and have had as much as 20%
FM from western North Carolina or northern Georgia.

Is it too early to start talking about skeds for the January contest?
