GM From NW Manitoba
« on: February 20, 2018, 17:07:39 UTC »
My name is Craig and I live on a farm in a remote location along the Saskatchewan border.  I am 250 miles northwest of Winnipeg, 200 miles east of Saskatoon, and 200 miles northeast of Regina.  I have been a ham since 1987 and will be setting up new antennas here this spring and am looking for a new cw rig.  I am pretty much a cw only op.  I really like QRP...

Nice to be here.

Good afternoon Craig,

Welcome to this QRP Club, sure you should like it, as we are a bunch of QRP'er with the emphase to do more with less.

I'm also a QRP fan for 55 years now and always love it, and I always find something new in this particular world of QRP & QRPp ( milliwatt)

See you on the bands around the QRP frequencies.

I love QRP/QRPp & CW

welcome to the club Craig. I'm VE4AKI and live in Winnipeg. I have been a ham for 34years and work mostly cw/qrp. You will find me monitoring 14060 a lot of the time so maybe we can have a qso. Hope to hear you-----Tom
