Today's QST carried an announcement of a new category for the June 
Contest, September Contest, etc. A "three band" category allowing 
operation on 50 MHz,
2 Meters, and 432 ONLY. This is the perfect category for the thousands 
of operators who have just an FT-857, FT-897, or Icom MKIII.

Also the addition of the new FM Only category means no more excuses not 
to play in the VHF contests. No need to invest in transverters to be 
My applause and delight to the ARRL and the VUAC for this decision.
