For Field Day operating, FM is probably the easiest VHF mode to implement. You’ll have little trouble
finding FM rigs to use; even a
hand-held transceiver can make a fine Field Day rig. FM doesn’t have the range of CW or SSB, but it is the
communications mode on the VHF and UHF bands. You’ll find the greatest amount of FM simplex activity
on the 2-meter band,
although 6 meter FM may be worth a try as well. Remember that Field Day rules prohibit the use of
repeaters. This means you’ll
have to hunt for contacts on the recognized simplex frequencies.
All QSL cards should be sent to:
