Forum Topic – “2 meter Contesting”  Our own long-time VWS member, John KM4KMU, will discuss 2m FM contesting, and in particular use of HT’s to work the ARRL VHF contest.  John was recently interviewed for the podcast Ham Talk, hosted by Andrea, K2EZ.  You can catch his interview at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m0rgaH_z3HI .  In the recent January 2021, ARRL VHF Contest, John garnered 18,000 points (almost 20 times more than the #2 scorer).  John credits his huge score to Hams in Northern Virginia, turning out on HT’s to work the contest.  John will provide some insights into his experience working HT contesters, and how folks can be in the contest with just their HT.  Time: 7:00-7:30 pm

Main Program --  “Exploring QRZ.com”  Fred, AA7BQ President and founder of QRZ.COM will conduct and interactive discussion of QRZ.COM focusing not only on amateur radio pages (yours included) but on the many other things that QRZ.COM has to offer the world-wide amateur radio community.  Fred wants an interactive discussion so don’t be shy and be sure to ask questions.  All of us have used QRZ.COM for QSL information, but how many have used it to study for amateur exams, gridmapper, swapmeet, find hams near us, technical forums, and much, much more.  This will be an exciting opportunity to see what QRZ.COM has to offer, and what we have been missing.   Time:  7:30-9:00 pm
