I have just participated on a VHF contest:
2011 ARRL June VHF QSO Party
Nice .. the only problem was that my recent medication affects my vocal chords, so that I kept loosing my voice after every 3rd QSO or so. What a nightmare in a contest with 50MHz band wide open! Good thing that I am actually a CW operator, so I was able to make some nice QSOs and even got myself some new DXCC entities, such as CO (Cuba) on 6m!
I have used my old FT-847 (50W) and antennas as shown on this picture (yes, that includes the 50-144-432 vertical):
