Leave it to CQ, there are 2 club lists. The one by state does not show NM VHF Society, but the 2nd list does. Go figure. The rules mention geographical areas as states, provinces. Work First, Worry Later.

Just checked and NMVHF Society is not listed in the CQ Club listing. Unknown what the CQ boundary is but think they would parallel ARRL definitions. For NMVHF in ARRL contests, stations must operate from within the borders of New Mexico.

Jim, I'm not operating the contest full time due to some severe noise problems on 6M here in DM58, but, I will make an effort to hear & work you on 2M from as many of your stops as possible.  I'm not sure 6M is possible, but I will certainly try there.

If there are decent sporadic-E conditions on 6, lets hope some of the FT8 crowd can pull themselves away from 50.313 and help those who are trying to run rate on SSB or CW.

Good luck in the CQ WW VHF Contest everyone. NM VHF Society kicked buttt last year from this region and made a great nationwide noise. Will be around to see what happens on 6 & 2 meters. Help the rovers as I can.

Speaking of Rovers... here in recognition of National Moon Day (per Bing, anyway) is a classic well equipped Rover from late July, early August 1971.

will be far enough away that it won't make too big difference.
Like I mentioned in my Rover Plans web page, point at 38° N, 104° W.
Or, from your location, point at La Junta, Colo.

I don't have high expectations that it'll work for us. But, I have
made many, similar, "surprising" contacts over the years.

I find the conference well worth going to. Here is the schedule of events:


And registration is here:


The web page indicates that rooms are still available at the CSVHF discounted rate, but the cutoff was supposed to be July 6, so I don’t know if that is accurate or not. 

As far as I know, we will have five NM VHF Society members attending, N5JEH, N7KA, N5SJ, K5WO, and myself. I am driving with N5SJ and K5WO, and I think that N5JEH and N7KA are driving together. I have room for one more, as long as you aren’t taking a steamer trunk, not sure if Ed and Arne have room for additional people. Contact them.

The CSVHF conference antenna measuring range is one of the few opportunities to get a reasonably accurate picture of your antenna’s performance. I know K5WO is bringing a couple of antennas to measure. If you want me to take an antenna along for you, let me know and we can make arrangements. If it is long, you may get a few bugs on it if I have to strap it to the roof. Although one wouldn’t think it, the antenna measuring range is also good spectator sport. 

I am also taking some New Mexico beer to donate on behalf of the NM VHF society for the hospitality suites.  - Duffey KK6MC

I had reserved a room back in the spring and then things changed and I let it go.  Now, the wife is heading back east over that weekend and I could again go.  But, the cheap rooms are gone, it's a 12 hour drive, it's way to $$ to fly from Podunk field CO to Podunk field KS - hmmm, what other excuses are there ?

Maybe next year again - I've made the last 3-4 in a row.

I find the conference well worth going to. Here is the schedule of events:


And registration is here:


The web page indicates that rooms are still available at the CSVHF discounted rate, but the cutoff was supposed to be July 6, so I don’t know if that is accurate or not. 

As far as I know, we will have five NM VHF Society members attending, N5JEH, N7KA, N5SJ, K5WO, and myself. I am driving with N5SJ and K5WO, and I think that N5JEH and N7KA are driving together. I have room for one more, as long as you aren’t taking a steamer trunk, not sure if Ed and Arne have room for additional people. Contact them.

The CSVHF conference antenna measuring range is one of the few opportunities to get a reasonably accurate picture of your antenna’s performance. I know K5WO is bringing a couple of antennas to measure. If you want me to take an antenna along for you, let me know and we can make arrangements. If it is long, you may get a few bugs on it if I have to strap it to the roof. Although one wouldn’t think it, the antenna measuring range is also good spectator sport. 

I am also taking some New Mexico beer to donate on behalf of the NM VHF society for the hospitality suites.  - Duffey KK6MC

Duffey,

I'm registered too. My schedule is tight for departure on Thursday so will be driving alone. Save a couple beers for me! (Actually, I've also picked up some NM beer to take along).

If you are on the fence about going to the Central States VHF Society Conference in Wichita July 26 to July 29, while you can register at any time up to and including the conference, if you want to have lunches on Friday and Saturday with speakers, and want to go to the banquet on Saturday evening, tomorrow, July 19, is the last day to register for those events.
