KC9BQA’s VHF Contesting School Articles

12:30am Thur.

This is the last of 3 posts tonight.  Start spreading the word everywhere about the ARRL  January VHF Contest, which is Jan. 30-31, 2016.  Scroll down this “front page” to a Jan. 3rd, 2016 post for more info about the contest itself.

If you want to know more about what a VHF/UHF contest is all about, I humbly refer you to a series of articles I wrote about 5-6 years back, called VHF Contesting School.   I wrote these articles to get even casual VHF’ers, and hams in general more confident about playing in a VHF contest.

Visit this link for KC9BQA’s VHF Contesting School articles   http://kc9bqa.com/?p=5931   You are free to share those articles with hams everywhere.  The whole reason KC9BQA.com exists is to increase on-air activity on bands like 50, 144, 222 and 432 MHz.

Please don’t think that only the big guns get on for VHF/UHF contests.  The contests are a lot more fun if even the guys with just a few bands, or limited time, stop by and call some CQ’s, let others know they are out there, and make the airwaves more active.

Because those articles were written back in 2009 or 2010, some of the content may be outdated, in the areas of scoring or rules.  Refer to the ARRL website for current info.
