Re: FM Awards, etc.



Sorry, wasn't paying attention to each and every message (been away for the
weekend) ... by why penalize FM?  If SSB is OK, and CW is OK and maybe other
digital modes are OK ... then what difference does the mode make?

was surprised to learn a while back that such contacts could be counted.  It
is unique that contacts through an FM repeater can be counted if it is in
orbit, but not anywhere else.  Not for terrestrial 2 meter VUCC, or Field
Day, etc.
