VHF Contesting Page
By Tim Stoffel, NS9E
This page is intended as a general purpose resource for the VHF contester.
At this time, it has three main components:
- An archive site for VHF contesting records.
- A selection of VHF contesting tutorials.
- Some helpful software and operating/logging/submission aids.
Above all, this is a resource for YOU! Any suggestions for improvements
are also welcome. Possible future editions include VHF contest records
broken down by ARRL section! I also may put a regulatory alert page here, as
one or more of our VHF allocations always seems to be under attack!
Updated 4-14-2002. Fixed spring sprint dates. Updated September and 10
GHz records. Added Spring sprints dates.
Check below for this info!!
In the immortal words of Wayne King, N2WK:

NOTE! If you have already downloaded this program, please download the
program again. More bugs have been found and corrected! The current
version is version 1.4 (01-22-2002), and the files are now named futocb14
Download the VHFTEST Cabrillo converter
program here. This program was specifically written to work with VHFTEST. It
is really easy to use: Work the contest, and run this program in the same
directory as VHFTEST when you are done! No exporting, preformatting, etc., is
required! The resulting file is ready to email to the ARRL with no further
processing! If you want, you can have your log on it's way to the league
minutes after the conntest is over!

Contest Records (Current through all of 2001)
These tutorials were written during the two years I was contest chairman
of the Rochester VHF group, 1994 and 1995. Although they have been edited to
be generic, they may still contain a few refrences to local activities.
Nonetheless, I think you will find them extremely useful! Feel free to share
these with your firends, club, etc.
