The September ARRL VHF Contest is coming up this weekend, September 13 - 15.
I'm going to try and take part in it, not sure for how long, but we will give it a try. The Rules can be found HERE.
The problem we have here in Kingston is that we have very few clear high points that we can operate from, and for a VHF contest, you need some height.
Also this weekend is the annual North American SOTA Weekend. This event is a casual event involving portable battery-powered radios on mountain summits. It is not a contest but is intended to introduce “Summits on the Air” to newcomers with home stations who try to work summit operators during one or two days. There are no rules regarding power levels, modes or number of bands worked, but please be courteous when more than one station is trying to talk to a SOTA operator on a summit.
The SOTA operators can be found on the usual QRP frequencies.
Hopefully the weather and propagation will be on our side for these events.
