Ad Hoc Subcommittee on VHF and Above Revitalization Seeks August UHF 
Contest Suggestions

The ARRL Ad Hoc Subcommittee on VHF and Above Revitalization is 
exploring ways to expand participation in the ARRL August UHF Contest 
<http://www.arrl.org/august-uhf>. This year's event took place August 
1-2. The objective of the event is to work as many stations in as many 2 
× 1 grid squares as possible on amateur frequencies above 222 MHz, using 
any authorized modes. The panel is inviting responses to these questions:

  * Are you now active on UHF?

  * How often do you presently operate in the ARRL UHF Contest -- never,
    occasionally, or always?

  * If you do not presently participate, why not?

  * If you do not presently participate, what changes might compel you
    to participate in the future?

  * What are your ideas for attracting more amateurs to UHF operation in

The subcommittee has requested that participants submit 
<mailto:vhf-input at arrl.org> their comments by October 1. The members of 
ARRL's Ad Hoc Subcommittee on VHF and Above Revitalization also 
expressed their gratitude for the many comments they received during the 
initial round of VHF+ contest rule changes.
