I have never worked a contest before, and frankly JUST found out this is coming up..also coincidentally came across a good deal on a homebrewed 6m KW amp...........

SO, will be feeding my homebrew loop and taking a shot.

I plan to use the N1MM logging program.

I am assuming "grid square" is the standard 4 place format?

Any POSITIVE input welcomed.

Yup...standard four-digit grid is the exchange.  The ARRL January VHF contest usually experiences flat conditions on 6 meters, although you may get some aurora this weekend and possibly some sporadic-E, in addition to the usual meteors.  The June VHF contest is a blast on 6 meters, so if you have even a little fun in January, plan to get on in June.
