The most important factor in VHF contesting is location. If you aren’t close enough to a significant amount of stations, the only thing you win is a good time. Absent a rare band opening. I’m in EM55, there are only so many stations I can work. In the January test, without FT8 Qs on six and two, I wouldn’t have had a score to submit. And yes, I prefer CW. In any contest, if there is an opening on six, I hit it hard, phone or CW. In the Jan test, there was an opening to the NE on six. Qs were only possible on FT8 for most part.
I have a significant station on six - 2.3.
I’ve operated from EN82, FM18, EM98. The last two yielded many Qs. I’m dead in the water here using conventional modes, SSB/CW.
Steve, N4JQQ, EM55BD
