[VHFcontesting] W9FZ/R Rove during CQ-VHF

For CQ-VHF, I've picked a six grid rove that I hope will help with
some needed grids (regionally).  A couple of the grids will be fairly
common but I
hope the QSO volume helps there.

I've updated the W0UC google spreadsheet with my plans.

You'll find me on 50.190+ and 144.250.  I'm thinking that since I
don't have to run all those high bands, you'll find me on my frequency
more than you generally do in a ARRL VHF Contest.  And if my frequency
is in use by someone else, I'll gladly move--it's not really "my"
frequency :-) .  But I don't want to add to any calling frequency
bedlam if I can help it.

1800Z - 2000Z  EN46 Iron County near Mercer, WI
2100Z - 2330Z  EN56 Vilas County Manitowish Waters Airport
0100Z - 0300Z  EN55 Lincoln County "Irma Hill"

1300Z - 1500Z  EN54 Marathon County near Edgar, WI
1600Z - 1800Z  EN44 Clark County  Abbotsford, WI
1900Z - 2100Z  EN45 Taylor County  Stetsonville, WI

I've looked at the W0UC google spreadsheet and been monitoring the
local email reflectors. I'll be looking for all the stations who have
indicated they'll be on.

Should be great fun!
