I like the idea of the FM-only category... it won't make a huge difference in
but it opens up the contest for people that don't have limited vhf stations.
But here's what happens next (based on many actual conversations):
Me: Hey, Charlie, there's an FM category in the VHF contests. You should give it
Charlie: OK, sounds great. I'll look for you on 146.52 MHz, right?
Me: Well, no, you can't use the FM calling frequency for calling in the contest.
Charlie: Really? If I was operating SSB, can I use the SSB calling frequency?
Me: Well, yes, that is allowed. But for some reason FM is treated differently.
Charlie: Wow, that seems dumb.
