ARRL VHF January Contest, weekend of 1/18 - 1/20/ 2020!

Huh... This contest is a little later this year,  http://www.arrl.org/january-vhf  Sporadic "E" should be pretty much done by then, so let's hope for Temp Inversions and Aurora. 
I can't decide upon what's worst, young and stupid, or old and chemically dumbed down.

Anyone who participates in the UHF/VHF, Please post your contacts good or bad so that I can live through you vicariously. I don't currently have those capabilities. Thanks
Listening on an Icom-718 with a 135' OCF dipole or a RSP2.  Grundig G3 and MLA-30 when portable. When QRP I use a Hendricks PFR-3 I built. Coverage is 20,30 and 40 meters.

You probably didn't miss anything.  Nothing heard on 6M here but then my 6 meter set up is, shall we say, lacking.
The big guns undoubtedly made contacts... keep an eye on QST for results...  probably some amazing numbers.
IMHO, an odd time of year for a VHF contest.
