Re: Analog only categories in June VHF Contest

Would it help to have an education campaign for the 6 meter FT8 newbies that have little experience with the analog modes ? Something like, "if you are seeing S/N stronger than 0 dB on FT8, you can make contacts much faster on SSB".

I like the idea of analog only, since it would mean I don't need to bring a computer and extra solar panels/batteries up on a mountain peak with me. That said, if there is nobody to talk to in the analog-only category, then I have no incentive to even go out. There are long stretches out here when you have no-one to talk to without the FT-8 crowd, so cutting that group out makes me less likely to go camping in less populated grids.
