Overview

The New Mexico VHF Society promotes VHF, UHF, and microwave activity in the State. We serve to organize the amateur radio community interested in VHF+ in and around the State of New Mexico and help define the people and resources associated with the 50 MHz and higher portion of the spectrum.

There is no particular emphasis on contests, operating modes, or any specific on-air activity. Everyone is welcome including moon-bouncers, microwavers, FM handi-talkie users, homebrewers, grid chasers, contesters, and DXers. We share a common interest in the amateur bands from 50 MHz through light.

The NMvhf.org website was originated in January 2016 by KG5FHU, WB2FKO, W7QQ, and KK6MC. The New Mexico VHF Society was formally organized in November 2016 through the efforts of N7KA and W7QQ. We'll do what we can to connect anyone and everyone who is interested and active on the VHF+ amateur radio bands.

Objectives

  • Encourage weak signal VHF+ activity in New Mexico and the desert southwest

We'd love to have you! Send an email request to the acting secretary Arne N7KA by using this password-protected application form. Password hint: What 5-letter word (all lower case) describes a VHF contester who drives to multiple grids?

Alternatively, send a direct email using the address: n7ka--at--arrl.net. Provide your name, callsign, email, and phone number. Contact information will never appear on this website. ARRL membership is not required, but we would like to know (yes or no). Optional additional info is your six-digit grid locator, your VHF+ station capabilities, and your amateur radio activities. There are no dues and you do not need to reside in the State of New Mexico.
