Re: FM simplex during VHF contests
I have had decent results in Albuquerque with FM simplex. Try the
following: i) There is usually someone hanging out on 146.580. You
can often move them to UHF simplex. ii) Make an announcement in
real-time on the Megalink repeater system, ie. location (grid) and
simplex frequency where you can QSY. I have had zero success doing
this on the various club repeaters. iii) Sometimes the contest
will coincide with the once-a-month Sunday evening simplex net on
146.400. You can run stations after the net, but explain what the
exchange is beforehand.
Only ii) has any hope of working outside of DM65.
