Hi everyone - a one time forward of KC8BQA's excellent work promoting the Wisconsin net, and the upcoming contests.

> Hello VHF'ers,
> Hopefully you are making plans to enjoy the CQ WW VHF contest this weekend, starting at 2pm Sat. and running 27 hours until 5pm on Sun. 50 and 144 MHz, get on, make noise and help spread the word. More about the CQ WW VHF at the bottom of the email. Here's a link to the website: http://www.cqww-vhf.com/
> TONIGHT'S NET ANNOUNCEMENT
> As usual, WB9LYH in EN54cl, Central WI, will be on 144.240 at 9pm, targeting eastern time zone first. Mark had a very enjoyable and active net on June 30th. Feel free to read all about it at kc9bqa.com. Remember I always post WB9LYH's net report at the website.
> There will be thunderstorms in parts of the Midwest/Great Lakes tonight. It's also warm and humid, so propagation could be "interesting". If you can safely get on and operate, stop by tonight and say hello.
> As always, we ask that you spread the word about the net and about kc9bqa.com. Get more hams involved in weak-signal VHF/UHF'ing.
> CQ WW VHF Contest is this weekend, July 16-17. CQ WW VHF is held on 6 and 2 meters. The bread-and-butter bands of VHF'ing.
> Here's a link to the website: http://www.cqww-vhf.com/
> I have made a post at kc9bqa.com that talks up the contest plus it includes a link to the interactive Google spreadsheet where Midwest and Great Lakes VHF'ers are posting their contest plans. Take one minute to visit kc9bqa.com and you will easily find the link. Feel free to share this info with hams everywhere.
> It's also not too early to mention that there *WILL* be a UHF Contest the first Saturday in August. It just won't be hosted by ARRL, who has temporarily given up on it.
> If you are a VHF/UHF'er who still values bands like 222, 432, 902, 1296 MHz. Heck even 10 gig... then read this post promoting the 2016 August UHF Contest -- http://kc9bqa.com/?p=8600 And as always, SPREAD THE WORD. Some UHF'ers will simply follow the ARRL lead here, shrug their shoulders and say, "Oh well, no contest, that's that." That is incorrect. Many UHF'ers across the country are making an effort this August. Get on the air and stand up for the UHF contest. Make ARRL care enough to take the UHF contest seriously.
