Big VHF QSO Party This Weekend

For those so inclined (like me) the ARRL VHF QSO Party is on for this weekend. The object of this contest is to work as many amateur stations in as many different 2 degrees by 1 degree grid squares as possible using authorized frequencies above 50 MHz. Foreign stations work W/VE amateurs only. The contest period is the second full weekend in June. Begins 1800 UTC Saturday, ends 0300 UTC Monday (June 10-12, 2006). You can get complete rules and other details at 2006 ARRL June VHF QSO Party Rules.

73 all and CU on the air from EM85ab, mainly on 6 meters (2 meters/70cm by request).
