 In all the QSOs I have made I used JT65B on 432..  be sure to check    I understand "C" is standard on 1296  and  I know  "A is used on 50 and "B" is used on 144 also..RAY WA4NJP

You will make more QSOs using digital than CW, especially with a small station.  There's more activity and you can work much weaker signals. The default protocol for all three bands is JT65, using submode "C" for 432 and 1296, "B" for 144. During the contest it's very unlikely that anyone will use any other modes (unless by accident!). Most (if not all) 144 and 432 signals will be linearly polarized, most  1296 signals (and all the strong ones) will be circular polarization.

All,

I haven't participated in an ARRL EME contest, but I am considering
trying the ARRL EME contests on Oct 19 and Nov 16 with a rather
modest home station. I think I would make the most QSOs using
a digital mode, but which digital mode will be the most popular during
the contest on 144, 432, and 1296?  Would the digital mode be more
popular than CW?

73,

Just a small correction Bob....70cm uses JT65B.

Ive just ordered a RF Hamdesign 3 mtr mesh dish with the fine 2.8mm mesh.
This will be fitted to a Big RAS/HR rotator.
Im mainly going to use it on 1296 and 5760 but would appreciate suggestions for a suitable feed should I decide to give it a go on 10ghz as well. 
I may add feeds for 2398 and 3400 at a later date depending on how things go.
The dish is f/D 0.45 according to the supplied docs.
Thanks for helping in advance ??????
