European VHF/UHF/SHF Activity Contests

If you are looking for prospective times, to be QRV on the VHF, UHF and SHF bands, you should consider the certain monthly trans-regional activity contests. On 23 cm and up it is useful, to arrange skeds in the ON4KST microwave chat and to make use of the latest Version of AirScout (by Frank, DL2ALF) to predict QSOs via aircraft scatter.
