2010 Spring VHF/UHF Sprints

I think these dates are now official?

The 2010 Spring VHF/UHF Sprints:

144 MHz  – Mon April 12, 7-11 PM local
222 MHz    – Tue April 20, 7-11 PM local
432 MHz    – Wed April 28, 7-11 PM local
902+ MHz – Sat May 1, 6 AM – 1 PM local
50 MHz      – Sat May 8, 6-10 pm local

I don’t plan on working any of these sprints due to a busy work/travel schedule this spring and other priorities for my limited hobby time anymore.  I don’t think they’ll ever get wise, announce/publicize them properly, and schedule the 6m Sprint for a better date (hint, late May/early June).

I’d be tempted to operate portable in the 432 Sprint, but the activity levels in these has dropped off so much in recent years it’s just not worth the hassle IMHO.
