Two Big Weekends for Contesters

The weekends of Sept 12-13 and Sept 19-20 are great ones for contesting.  The VHF sweepstakes is a low pressure, high-prestige contest on a regional scale.  If you have 2 m or 6m, you cancertainly rack up a respectable score, and credit it to SJRA.  There are entry categories for FM-only and 3-band (2m, 6m, and 432 MHz) for those who have not ventured into higher frequencies.  The objective is to get as many contacts and as many grid squares into your log.  For more information, see the On the Air/Contests section of the ARRL web site, www.arrl.org.
