VHF Events Starting This Weekend

Thank you Reed WW3A for passing this along.

To all VHF+ Aficionados,

Several VHF+ events are coming up in the several weeks (including the ARRL 222 MHz & Up Distance Contest – THIS COMING WEEKEND). 


We hope you will get on and have fun!  Here’s a preview:



  • 10 GHz & Up Contest In justover two weeks on August 18-19, 2018 is the first weekend of the ARRL 10 GHz Contest (weekend two is September 15-16, 2018). Operations may take place for 24 hours total on each contest weekend. Each weekend begins at 6:00 AM local Saturday though 12:00 midnight local Sunday. In recent weeks, the San Bernardino Microwave Society had their tune-up event, and the North East Weak Signal Group had their picnic with microwave range testing offer their members opportunity for performance tweaking. If you have gear for 10, 24, 47, 74 GHz or higher these are the weekends to dust them off and have fun.  See the full results at http://www.arrl.org/contest-results-articles  – 2017 – 10 GHz and Up Contest.
