CQ WW VHF Contest July 19 - 20th
Tuesday, July 8, 2014 - Posted By: VE3LVW

The CQ World-Wide VHF Contest takes place July 19th and 20th. The contest starts on Sat July 19th at 1800z and runs until Sunday July 20th 2100Z.

This is a short contest and a good time to check your 6 and 2 meter SSB equipment. Try your hand at making a wire dipole or rotatable dipole for these bands if you currently don't have an antenna. They take up a small space and can be constructed quickly.

Complete rules for the contest is available on the CQ website using this link
