June VHF contest this coming weekend
- Dig out those IC-706's, or try that 6M band daylight rigs and get on the
air this weekend.
The ARRL June VHF contest is coming. Starting 1800z June 11 through
0300z June 13. Last year we had some of the best 6M Eskip propagation
I've ever experienced in this contest. Some parts of the country also
got a nice 2M Eskip opening as well. There we a handful MRRC'ers that
made a few hundred contacts on 6, so let's hope we get great condx again
One of my fellow contesters sez he often can do meteor scatter.
Try it, you may like it.
- I was hoping to have some fun today but the day in CT started with quite pregnant clouds and it started drizzling about 1pm just before the contest started. Too wet for radio in the park. Tomorrow is likely to be just a little nicer. I dont think the bands were all that good today either - I couldn't hear much from the apt.
Question: Is it OK to use both a Heil competition mic element AND the compression in the radio at the same time?
