Trying out 6m

Coming up on Saturday is the Central States VHF Society Spring VHF/UHF Sprints. It’s a short 4 hour affair starting at 7PM and ending at 11PM (2300Z-0300Z).

After reading a copy of Six Meters: A Guide to the Magic Band that I found at a used book store, it seemed like it would be a pretty cool band to play on. I usually don’t hear much on 6m during my casual twiddling around on the radio dial. I really don’t know how the antenna performs on 6m aside from the fact that the radio seems to be able to tune it there. Hopefully this will be a chance to find out. Hopefully there will be some good propagation for me on Saturday.
