VHF/UHF CONTESTS



TEARA has operated from high atop Bear Wallow Mountain in the ARRL VHF/UHF QSO Party. The event was set up in a Field Day type portable operation, complete with camping and cookouts. TEARA operates many of the other VHF/UHF contests from one member or another's home. It is a good way to have a "get together" without all the hassle of moving equipment, traveling great distances, etc. Respectable scores have been placed by the locally held contest groups.

In the spring of 1994, TEARA placed 1st in our division in the ARRL Spring VHF/UHF QSO party from the home of Joe Motola N8RQR of Zebulon.

TEARA has operated the ARRL UHF QSO party from the 147.39 tower site in Clayton. The UHF yagi's and verticals for 222 SSB, 223.50 FM, 432 SSB and 446.0 FM were installed near the top of the 200 foot tower. In 1994, TEARA placed 1st place in our division in the UHF contest.

TEARA competed in the IARU HF championship in 1994, and 100ís of contacts were made.

To learn more about VHF/UHF contesting, and contesting in general, visit the 'DX and QSL Route' page in the 'Links to other sites of interest' area from the main TEARA page. Field Day is another contest of sorts, and you can find out more about that on the'Field Day' page found in the 'Club Menu'
