Don't forget, the CQ WW VHF contest starts tomorrow (Saturday July 21) at 1800 utc and continues until Sunday July 22 at 2100 utc.

Here's hoping for some decent propagation !!!!

I plan to do a little tuning around on 6m CW and SSB.  It'll be my first VHF test since I just got on the band a month ago.  I've have had lots of fun so far with 30 grids worked using a dipole plopped on the roof :-)

I was very excited about this contest, did a bunch of antenna work just for it too. I was on (mainly listening) 6 all weekend. pretty poor conditions for me, but I managed to work a page of contacts on a mix of cw and ssb.

right around 8pm on saturday, started working lots of stations, the band finally opened up. stopped for dinner and the band was dead when I returned.

did work a couple of Mexican stations, east coast and midwest. I have to check, but I think I got about 3 new grids, good enough for me.

Well I ended up working (was on-call) so I didn't play.  I did tune around and the condx were poor with only a few heard.  Funny thing is the band was wide open the following Monday evening Undecided
