ARRL September VHF QSO Party this weekend

Playing around on the ARRL VHF QSO Party this weekend, primarily on 2m & 6m SSB. It runs from 1800 UTC Saturday and ends 0300 UTC Monday (September 10-12, 2011). Not really making a serious effort, but it's neat to pick up a few new grids and help out with those that are making an effort to pack in a good score. Nice to see activity on 2m SSB! You can see more about it at:

It's about 11:30pm local time, Saturday night, and I'm still hearing a few signals on the band.

- I just worked W8ZN on 144.195 & 50.220 at abt 11:02pm EST FM05 FM19

- Worked KO4YC on 50.220 & 144.230 , FM05 FM17

- Worked K3TUF on 50.150 & 144.210 FN10 FM05 NC to PA on 2m at 11:50pm EST. Not bad for a dead band!

- Worked K4LY on 50.190 & 144.187 FM05 EM85

- Worked KN4SM on 50.190 & 144.187 FM05 FM16

- Worked W3SO on 144.2128 & 50.163 FM05 NC FN00 PA, not bad!

- Worked W4IY on 50140.0 & 144.950 FM05 FM08
