ARRL UHF is Aug 3-4th. Google Spreadsheet for Posting Your Plans is Here.

    9:15am Thursday

    Great thing is happening the past few days.  My email is filling up with UHF’ers posting their plans to be on Aug 3-4th.  Talking about the ARRL UHF Contest.   Link to the rules:  http://www.arrl.org/august-uhf    If you have bands like 222, 432, 902/3, 1296, 2304, 3456 MHz, or bands like 5 GHz, 10 GHz and higher, this is your contest.  Help spread the word; still have 9 days to get your rear in gear. 

    Like he has for years now, W0UC Paul in EN44 has created a Google spreadsheet where those of us in the Midwest/Great Lakes can post our UHF contest plans.  Before I pass the link along (with W0UC’s permission) a few guidelines.  Please read these.  
    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 ARRL August UHF Contest plans here:

    I have a HSMM-Mesh Access Point and Mesh Node that I could install in my car. This operates at 2.4GHz, as a part 97 device instead of the part 15 device it was originally. Could any IRC chats and/or video conferences count as a 12 point QSO?

    I have no clue Bryan. Maybe someone else will be able to help with your question.
