    It is looking like VE6AO will be going after

    3.4. Single Operator, FM Only:

    3.4.1. All QSOs must be made using Frequency Modulation (FM).

    3.4.2. Restricted to 50, 144, 222 and 440 MHz.

    I have some great support over the last few months from a number of other members,  they know who they are.

    We didn't get our stack of VHF UHF beams rotating but we do have vertical antennas at good height connected to three transceivers and are going to use one of the TS 2000's from our emergency portable packages to give us a presents on 52.525 FM.
