Post Your CQ WW VHF Contest Plans Here — Contest is This Weekend

  6am Wed. 

    WB9LYH will be 144.240 net control tonight from EN54cl, 8pm central/9pm eastern start.   Mark’s antenna pattern from Central WI is NE at first, then soon E, SE, S, SW, W, NW and N over the next 45-60 minutes. 

   *THE CQ WORLDWIDE VHF CONTEST IS THIS WEEKEND*  Starts at 1800Z Sat. and runs until 2100Z Sun.   This contest keeps it simple — 6m and 2m only.  Bread-and-butter bands of VHF’ing.   It also has several differences (some would say improvements) on ARRL V/U contest rules.  So take some time to go thru the rules. 
   Here’s the link to info and rules: 

   W0UC Paul in EN44 has again created a Google spreadsheet where you can enter your contest plans.  Before I share the link, I want a few things to be clear.
   1)  I know nothing about a Google spreadsheet.  I’m just the messenger.
   2)  Notice on the lower left that there are tabs for both fixed stations and rovers.  
   3)  We kindly ask that with this sheet, the emphasis remains on WI and nearby states.  We’re NOT trying to create a nationwide sheet.  If you are more than say 300-400 miles from WI, considering doing something similar for your own area.  It would be a big boost to V/UHF contesting if there were similar listings for other parts of the USA and Canada.  
   4)  Please spread the word among your V/UHF buddies in WI and nearby states to list your CQ WW VHF plans here:
