ARRL VHF Contest, Septembre 2008: QRV? - 2008/09/05 07:57 Est-ce qu'il y en a qui vont faire le ARRL VHF Contest le 13 et 14 Septembre?

Anyone doing the ARRL VHF contest on September 13-14?

Je serai QRV sporadiquement sur 6M, 2M et 70CM à partir de mon QTH de FN25bk. Encore une fois, je lance appel aux stations québécoises qui voudraient prendre des QSO avec l'Outaouais de se manifester!

L'Outaouais, c'est aussi Ottawa, car il y a beaucoup de stations qui participent du côté VE3. Il y aura si je me souviens bien 2 stations rover qui peuvent couvrir 4 grids chacune. La région d'Ottawa est florissante d'activité VHF, UHF et micro-ondes, le West-Carleton Amateur Radio Club est le plus actif de ce côté. Ils ont d'ailleurs un réseau le mardi soir à 21h00 sur 144.250.

Alors prenez la peine de tourner vos beams vers l'ouest!

Au plaisir et 73.

Bertrand.

Re:ARRL VHF Contest, Septembre 2008: QRV? - 2008/09/05 12:58 Salut Bertrand

Comme une tache j'y serais, 144Mhz et 432 Mhz. En CW et WSJT.

Bonne chance à tous.

Re:ARRL VHF Contest, Septembre 2008: QRV? - 2008/09/05 13:07 OK Daniel. Nos chances sont bonnes pour un QSO sur 432 (compte tenu de mes antennes). Je vais me tourner vers l'est et te chercherai. On pourra essayer 2M par la suite.

Cheers,

Bertrand

Re:ARRL VHF Contest, Septembre 2008: QRV? - 2008/09/07 21:56 I have installed the new one 7 el. yagi for 144 MHz today. It has 3.3 meters boom and about 10.7 dBd gain with F/B 25 dB. It's about 9 meters up and it's under my MQ-26. So I can rotate it.  I'm ready for the contest on 50 and 144 MHz.

Unfortunately nobody was working today on 144.200 to try my new antenna ((((

73!

Re:ARRL VHF Contest, Septembre 2008: QRV? - 2008/09/08 12:03 Bonjour Victor,

You should have told me. I am (almost) always available for a test! On 2M, I use an omnidirectional, horizontally polarized, EggbeaterII antenna and 100+ W. I have had QSOs with my friend Robert, VE2ASL in St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, so it is workable Aylmer-Bouchervile with that setup. I also have 6M now, but we're kind of close for a Es contact. I guess Tropo would work, but I have tried yesterday evening with Robert, dipole to Squalo: Result NIL!

See you on the contest!

Cheers 73,

Bert, VE2ZAZ

Re:ARRL VHF Contest, Septembre 2008: QRV? - 2008/09/08 12:13 Bertrand merci!

Could we try a CW sked on 144.220 at 8:00 PM today? After that we can QSY to 50.130 to test 6m.

73!

Re:ARRL VHF Contest, Septembre 2008: QRV? - 2008/09/08 12:28 What do you think if we are going to apply for CGQ team participation in the Contest?

http://www.arrl.org/contests/announcements/rules-all.html#cc

We could present the CGQ in the Medium category since we all are in the QC ARRL section. So we could submit 50 or fewer entries!

73!

Victor

Re:ARRL VHF Contest, Septembre 2008: QRV? - 2008/09/08 13:44 Hi Victor,

For tonight, I will be there. I will also be on the CGQ Billboard in case nothing works on 2M.

Regarding this weekend's contest, do we meet the following rule?
"In Canada, clubs that are fully affiliated with the Radio Amateurs of Canada (RAC) are eligible to submit scores for an Affiliated Club Competition event."

To be honest, I never submit results to ARRL; I have been doing it for fun, in a sporadic fashion during the weekend. On average, I make around 30 QSOs and a dozen grids during the whole weekend on 2m and 70cm. That's without the 6m band. Now that I have 6m with an omni, I guess it will be a few more.

I don't mind submitting as CGQ, but don't expect record-breaking scores from me. It's my younger son's 5th birthday this weekend. I guess you see the picture....

I guess from an operating and logging perspective, it does not change anything. The exchanged report is the grid square only. So nothing tells the others that I compete as a club, right?

In the previous response, I typo'ed. It should have read "my friend Robert, VE2ASL". BTW, Robert will also participate this weekend. maybe I can attract him into CGQ...

Cheers!

Bert.

Re:ARRL VHF Contest, Septembre 2008: QRV? - 2008/09/09 12:59 Hello all,

I will probably get on for at least a few hours from FN25bl on 6m (100w, 4-ele quad), 2m (100w, 8-ele quad), 1.25m (25w, 6-ele quad) and 70cm (20w, 8-ele quad).

All antennas are up about 35', but my 70cm setup needs some attention. I might be able to reach Bertrand VE2ZAZ on 70.

Re:ARRL VHF Contest, Septembre 2008: QRV? - 2008/09/09 13:48 Hi Alan,

I think you would reach me using a dummy load in your basement

Hope to talk to you. If we end up competing as CGQ, please join in!

Re:ARRL VHF Contest, Septembre 2008: QRV? - 2008/09/10 08:32 Si je suis à la maison, je vais surement essayer de prendre part. Mais en septembre ici, le 6 collabore très peu

Je n'ai rien du tout pour 2 et U. J'en ai déjà pas mal à faire hi.

Re:ARRL VHF Contest, Septembre 2008: QRV? - 2008/09/11 10:28 Hello Guys...

Alan, I can reach you either if we can meet somewhere on 144 and 432.

432: 22 ele K1FO 50' up 30w
144: 12 ele K1FO 45' up 30/160w

Jean Pierre, il faudras que je mette de la pression pour que tu puisse t'équipé en 2M afin de pouvoir faire les concours. Autant en MS, tropo et autres....

La même pression qu'il te faudras aussi pour que soit installé en 6m ici...LoL! Pour le moment je n'ai qu'une dipole à 25 pieds de terre avec 8w (transverter 144/50).

Ciao! messieur on se vois sur le contest.
