No it isn't but I just got back from a two week business trip and I haven't
had a chance to talk to Bob about W4NH plans for the January contest. I
will get on it.

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?
