[VHFcontesting] How to order

Actually, FT8 may be the perfect solution to my problem!

I wasn't active this contest because I was taking advantage of 
relatively warm (but still windy) conditions to do some urgently 
needed temporary repair work, trying to keep my antenna farm mostly 
intact through this unusual winter. In my 36 years of radio I have 
never seen a winter so devoid of days when one could to tower work 
in relative safety.

Since the move to FT8 has made 6 meters quite unattractive to me, 
removing the 6 meter antenna would lighten the load on tower, mast, 
and rotator, thus easing some of the problems I am fighting this 
winter. Hmm...
