Hello Pete,
I have to share that I'm exceptionally pleased that this contest has finally emerged after many many years of discussions and now ARRL sponsorship.
But, having said that, I'm not so sure I'm likely to be as actively engaged with the breakdown of awards and the classifications of entry categories. As you already know, I am all for playing radio, promoting VHF and up events and contests, and bringing in new folks as well.as those long in the hobby but new to things other than HF, but there isn't nearly the incentive from an awards perspective for the effort of setting up as a single portable operator running low power levels as compared to other VHF events and contests....
I plan to be on from my usual location, but it's far more likely to be more of a spectator sport this time around....
