Ohio VHF+ Simplex Contest
A six hour contest to inspire amateurs around Ohio to operate FM simplex to simulate repeater-less emergency communications.
The purpose of our annual simplex activity is to improve our station and antenna capabilities, and to test our coverage areas on simplex frequencies. These may be very important in times of emergency, when repeaters have failed and simplex is the only method of emergency communication. We are NOT giving any consideration for backup power – this exercise is aimed at testing antennas and determining coverage areas.
