6 meters was a bust for the CQ VHF contest this weekend. Nothing spectacular and activity was low.

I did make 2 AM contacts; Texas and Floriduh!

Also worked our very own Jay W1VD!!

B,

I spent some time yesterday begging on .400. No one around.

Iíll agree, activity was low compared to the ARRL VHF contests.  6 meters DID open up to some extent, but virtually ALL activity was on FT8; 2 meters, nothing to write home about in terms of conditions, but again VERY little SSB activity.  This was the first contest that I operated NOTHING BUT FT8!

Nothing like responding to a 5 year old thread  Grin
In all the years I've been on VHF, CQ VHF contests generally sucked for activity.  ARRL VHF contests generally bring out more participants. Today, FT8 and other digital modes are the name of the game on 6 and 2 meters other then for some occasional FM repeater activity.
