ARRL June VHF Contest is June 14-15

   6:20am Sat.  

   Want to get the Contest info front and center this morning.   

  *You are free to take any/all of this info at and share it with your ham clubs, and ham buddies.* 

   The ARRL June VHF Contest starts at 1pm central time on Sat., June 14th and runs 33 hours until 10pm on Sun., June 15th.     This contest has evolved into easily the most active and well-attended V/UHF contest.  The reason is that 6m is often open to many parts of the USA, Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean in May, June and July. 
   Also remember that all VHF/UHF bands are in play.  This is not just a 6 meter contest (although some years 6 is so hot that it seems like it).  Get on all your V/UHF bands — 50, 144, 222, 432, 902, 1296, 2304, 3456, 5 gig, 10 gig, etc on up into laser.  Or just get on with what you have and have fun.  🙂

   If you don’t know much about V/UHF contesting, don’t worry.  I was in the same boat 10 years ago.  What I can offer is my 8-part series of articles called VHF Contesting School.  I will make a separate post about those articles very shortly.   The direct link to the VHF Contesting School articles is  You have my full permission to share those articles with hams everywhere. has always been about increasing activity on the SSB/CW portions of VHF/UHF bands.  This works best when many VHF’ers are helping spread the word in all directions.
