Lessons learned during the 2011 January ARRL VHF Sweepstakes:

#1 Get antennas / set-up ready beforehand
#2 Have a stable vehicle, operating position
#3 Computer interface is needed to readily play the "band follow-me" game
#4 Computers and radio displays don't like sunlight/glare
#5 Need better feedline (non grabbed out of the box at the last minute) to "hear better"
#6 Need better antennas to "hear better"
#7 Need patience, munchies and "refreshments" to better cope with low activity levels

More this afternoon.
