From past experience, I can fill out the log for my 2 meter QSO's right now:

- The 3 guys in El Paso (K5LA, K5PHF, ...)
- WB2FKO
- W7QQ
- Maybe N1AV
- AA7A, if he is on
- WA7JTM, if he goes to DM53 or DM54
- K5AM (W5SIX) if he is on from his mountain QTH

WA0QJE would be on the list, but I would be borrowing his 2 meter radio.
NM5SD is an SK.

None of the rovers will be in range. Guys running <=100 watts to small beams living in (Phoenix, Tucson, Albuquerque) valleys just aren't workable from here.

Life is tough on VHF in DM52XT, even on a hilltop :)

June VHF - W9RM

Keith Morehouse
 


It appears all is a go on the bottom 4 bands this weekend.  Hope to hear a few NMVHF guys, more hopefully, above 6M.  I will try to leave one radio on 144.200 and keep one eye on the SDR display while working 6M.  Call CQ or something on 2M if you can't find me on 6.

I hope this doesn't turn out to be a FT8 contest.  I will attempt to work my share if the band isn't open well, but I refuse to sit on 50.313 during a good Es opening, limping along at 40/hr.  If the band opens and there's nobody to run on SSB, I'm done with it.

Equipment as follows... good luck all.

50.  KW, 7el @ 40', 7el at 65', 5el @ 30'
144.  600W, 2M5WL @ 50'
222.  400W, 5WL @ 70'
432.  KW, 9WL @ 75'

Re: VHF contest

Please get on 2 meters Steve. There is more activity in Arizona than a few years ago and sounds like it is the same in New Mexico. The last few VHF contests have had between 30 and 50 QSO's on 2 meters and they were not all in Phoenix. 7-9 grids.
