VHF/UHF FM contest.

Postby m0lsx » Tue Feb 23, 2016 2:11 pm

This looks like a great idea. A contest that reminds people that simplex is permitted on 2 & 70. And could 2 bands ever be less utilised than the simplex sections of both bands??

If you fancy trying your hand at some local contesting on VHF and UHF, note that the 2016 contesting season starts this Tuesday, with clubs from Suffolk, Essex and Kent taking part. The event is organised by the Leiston ARC (on the Suffolk coast.)

The contest will be on 2m and 70cm FM simplex, with more points for 70cm contacts – and you can work the same station on both bands for points.

I am not a fan of contesting as a whole, but this is a great idea. Something to get people onto FM simplex. Something that most foundation licence holders can compete in, with nothing more than they use on the repeater.
