|It was kind of fun. Not like an HF contest.
CQC needs to limit the calling frequencies. There were too many "channels" to keep track of. It would be more helpful to give a smaller range for people to seek. Also, I would shorten it to a Sprint. Maybe have a 2hr event. This would concentrate the chances of finding someone to a more manageable time frame. Where was WØCQC? I listened all over the band(s) and couldn't find them anywhere. I think the WØCQC multiplier should be much, much less, like on the order of 5pts. It slants the field to those who "know" who/where/when WØCQC will be!
Thanks for the event. I'll see you at the next CQC contest.

Here's how we announced the contest:
Join us on the plains, lakes, mountain tops and trails
for our first ever VHF/UHF contest!!
On 2 meters, only recognized FM simplex frequencies may be used, such as 144.90 to 145.00; 146.49, .55 and .58, and 147.42, .45, .48, .51, .54 and .57 MHz. The use of 146.52, the national simplex frequency, is prohibited. The CQC "watering hole" frequency of 146.445 is allowed. As always, contest participants must be respectful of use of the frequencies by others.
On 70 cm the use of 446.000, the national simplex frequency, is prohibited. Use only the FM simplex portions of the band. Under the ARRL band plan, the portion of the 70 cm band from 445.00 to 447.00 is used for auxiliary, control links, and simplex operations. Frequencies just above and below 446.000, using 25 khz spacing may be areas where you will find simplex activity, ie, 445.900, 445.925, 445.950, 445.975, 446.025, 446.050..etc. Check your ARRL Repeater Directory for more detailed information.
