They run about 2K in to large beams stacked in groups of 4 to 8 beam sit on top of Local Mountain with auto cq’ers going complete contest

 

No of the local’s can  think about putting a station up for the June VHF contest

 

Very rude operators

The local clubs here in Utah that are primarily 2m, 70cm, and VHF really are not HF folks. There is a huge disparity between the HF/DX Clubs and the other clubs. I've not done any VHF myself, but what is a typical power range they will be operating in? 2m/70cm unless using something special is typically 2 - 5 Watts. SO if they were running HP, why would it matter?

Their vhf contest handbook

If you read thought it tells there operators to run max power it all time   (they have the widest nosiest signals)

No other stations in this area can think about trying and freq about 50Mhz

 

This is just written proof of what the new hams are all about
