Welcome to the Club / Hello from Albuquerque

I've been an off and on QRPer since the 1970s, when as a novice I used an HW8 (or was it an HW7?) to operate from summits while backpacking all over California long before I knew anything about SOTA (did it even exist then?).

Although I have a legal limit QRO station at home, I still love getting on the air during a backpacking trip with a lightweight QRP CW station - simplicity and fun; and I never fail to make QSOs.

My current setup is a TR-35 that I built from a kit; the entire station weighing about 2.4 pounds.

Marco, AA5ET

I have an old ATS3B.1 I haven't used in years. I am dusting it off to start using it as I learn the POTA system. Most HF rigs in this RV campground park hear all of the birdies from the PWM converter chargers. I was first licensed 40 years ago and it is like Rip Van Wrinkle waking up and trying to get back into the hobby again. I am looking at getting an FT-818, but in the near term have built an end-fed half-wave tuner kit and will be cutting some wire soon for picnic table operation.

This was a friend I made out at a potential POTA location, he had many brothers and sisters to keep me company.

 Hello All.  New to QRP and am looking forward to making contacts with QRP.  My name is Roy, AF5XB.
I live in Brandon, Mississippi, just East of Jackson, Mississippi. 

I need to find frequencies that this group uses and times that most are on the air. 

My contact info is good on QRZ.  If you would like to schedule a time for a QSO, send me a text or email.


Antennas / Doublet antenna

Just one antenna here, an 2 X 11m doublet with 450 ohm ladderline. In the of it there is an antenna tuner made by SV1NL. Between tuner and coax a choke balun. Just an antenna and a t/x, I operate mainly qrp 5W through last 6 years about, this configuration gives me a lot of fun and dx communications, even dxpeditions. 73

Ringrazio i dirigenti del Club grazie per avermi accolto in questo interessante QRP Club, è la prima volta che mi presento.
In Italia sono da tempo iscritto al Mountain QRP Club e al Sotaitalia Club.

Segnalo che questa domenica si terrà l'evento in oggetto, personalmente sarò operativo dalla Croce del Pratomagno in Toscana, 1560 metri con la speranza di poter collegare molti colleghi anche lontani.

La mia attrezzatura è composta da un vecchio apparato ICOM IC-251 che ho riparato e revisionato e da una antenna Yagi 6 elementi autocostruita.

Cordiali 73 da IU5IZY
QRP / the first national QRP week-end.
« Last post by F5MPN on June 03, 2022, 00:30:53 UTC »
From June 11th at 08:00 UTC to June 12th at 18:00 UTC, come in large numbers to participate in the first national QRP week-end.

The spirit of this new activity is the opportunity for the QRP community to have a weekend dedicated for this kind of trafic on all HF bands from 160 to 10m, all modes (CW, Voice, MGM) using mobile or fixed station from the moment you take pleasure. So, there will be no first, no last and no prizes to be won.

In order to make the QRP activity, and this weekend in particular, known to as many people as possible, we would like to receive from the participants a small report reflecting their activity. Just a few lines to tell us about your best contact or exchange, a funny, incongruous, picturesque, atypical situation, etc. A brief description of the station (transmitter, receiver, antenna, power, …) will be appreciated.

The nice meetings and our efforts to be active with a maximum number of QRP stations should help making this weekend a lively one.

To send your reports : intlqrpwe@gmail.com
