VHF UHF Contesting- how can we give it a shot in the arm ?
Is it ham radio that needs the shot in the arm ? Inactive repeaters , few stations on most bands, stations with no antennae….
Is it too late to reverse the trend ?
Does VHF UHF contesting need to categorise Microwave and the rest ?
Has the Microwave focus disenfranchised too many ?
Why don’t F Calls partake ?
Is the Dx based scoring fundamentally flawed – Should it score only after 100 km ? And no more after 1000km ? Something like base score is ten points and then going up after 100 km and no points for under 25km ?
Should the field days be renamed Activity Days and all stations compete in the same categories ? Hilltoppers would be not unlike expeditions in HF contests… and have that advantage of location location location
