For anyone interested in VHF contesting, there is a 1-hour sprint today starting at 11am EDT.
I'm planning to operate on 6m and 2m, SSB and digital. It would also be a great time to test out everyone's FM simplex capabilities. It should hopefully be a fast and fun hour.

Pass the word to other regional clubs!

The Rochester VHF Group is sponsoring a 1-hour long VHF Sprint TODAY (Saturday, January 2nd) starting at 11:00 AM.  Even if you're not "into contests", this is a GREAT opportunity to polish your ability to pass simple traffic quickly on several bands while having fun.

"Contemplate, and Activate" for this ONE HOUR on-the-air fun-packed activity!

It is a 3-band only (6 meters, 2 meters and 1.25 meters) event, but otherwise it scores just like the upcoming January VHF Contest (exchange call sign and grid-4).  Be ready/willing/able to work the same station on any/all of these bands as you have, too!  Here's a paper log you could use, if you wish (thanks Lu/N2SLN): https://www.qsl.net/n2sln/logsheet.html

Full (simple) rules: http://rvhfg.org

FM Frequencies (vertical polarization is best, unless otherwise noted)
50.525 MHz, 50.300 MHz (horizontal)
146.55 MHz, 146.58 MHz
223.50 MHz

SSB Frequencies (horizontal polarization is best)
50.150 MHz (+/- 25 kHz)
144.20 MHz (+/- 30 kHz)
222.10 MHz (+/- 30 kHz)

It's just another fun time coming from your Rochester VHF Group, serving the ROC/175 mile region for over 70 years!
