Alaska VHF-Up Group Contest Page

Conducted by Paul Kiesel, K7CW / VE7IB,
Contest Chairman of the Alaska VHF-Up Group


Welcome to the Alaska VHF-Up Group Contest Page. We've created this page to serve functions of VHF contesting resource lookup and as announcement place for upcoming contest events. Resources are listed on the left side of the page. Please note that we encourage that contest logs be submitted using the cabrillo format, though many contests still allow submission of paper logs. Many logging and contest softwares provide a means for creating a cabrillo file. For those desiring a method of constructing a stand-alone cabrillo file, a source of applets for that purpose can be found by clicking on "Cabrillo Applets" in the left margin. If you need help creating a cabrillo file or have any contest-related question, please don't hesitate to ask me. Since many of our club's members reside in states other than Alaska, their contest scores cannot be contributed towards the AVG score in ARRL club competitions.
