Well, nobody ever posted anything on the OhQP-mail reflector, or sent any
questions to info at ohqp.org, about 10 meter FM.
We don't have anything against 10 meter FM. Just I've never heard of
anybody operating any contest on 10 meter FM.
If you want to use 10 FM, go right ahead. If your software doesn't
recognize FM as a valid mode, you can enter SSB instead. QSOs on FM would count
the same as any other phone (SSB or AM) qso, 1 point. No credit for repeat
qsos on both SSB and FM.
No credit for 6 meter FM. OhQP is an 80-10 meter (no WARC band) contest.

Why wouldn't 10 FM is be permissible? It's a voice mode - and even
though the OHQP gurus were thinking Silly Sideband because of myopia, I
don't see why contacts made via 10 metre Funny Modulation would be
disqualified. Of course, if you had both SSB and FM, they'd both be
voice modes so you wouldn't be able to contact a station on 10 FM and 10
I'll let the esteamed high honchos who generate the rules give a
definitive answer, but that's my opinion, which has been diametrically
opposite of the rule makers in the past, but in the past I've prevailed
upon one or two instances.

p.s. I don't have a 10 metre FM rig anymore. I couldn't even give it
away, much less sell it, so it's in the midst of Mount Rumpke in
HAMIlton county (The county dump site) Gee, since it was built in the
1950's it might even have had some oil filled (PCB filled?) condensers
and transformers (yup, in those daze they called those thing
condensers, not capacitors.!) It had lots of those things we now call
glow bugs, but in that day they were called vacuum tubes.
