Just had to share the recent comments from Jim Worsham, W4KXY about the view on VHF Operating in the Southeastern part of the country. These comments were made on the VHF Contesting E-mail List:
We guys in the Southeast enjoy reading all of these discussions
about the validity of the various modes, skeds, etc. Down here our
philosophy about VHF contesting is we will work anyone anywhere using any
mode, band, etc. that we and they have. We can't afford to be snobs about
Jim is often active from W4NH, the Fourlanders Contest Team, which is one of the best VHF contesting stations in the area. He's also our rep to the VUCA, and does a lot for the entire VHF Community.
